NEW YORK, Apr 21, 2014/ — With the mantra, “In football we trust,” Y-3 is pledges alliance to the game. The simple slogan serves as the main message using 1950s iconography to highlight the spirit of good sportsmanship.
Paying homage to the upcoming FIFA World Cup™ in Brazil, Y-3 created a special capsule collection alongside the main Spring/Summer 2014 collection.
The small capsule of apparel, footwear and accessories references easy sportswear classics with a more elegant twist in black and white, leather trims, sophisticated track materials and smooth satins.
Apparel items feature a woven crest, such as the black Tango Polo shirt, the ‘Shake Hands’ T-shirt in black or white and the black Letterman bomber jacket.
Accessories include a cotton knit scarf on back featuring the ‘In Football We trust’ slogan, and an exclusive all black football.
Y-3’s classic sneaker styles complete the collection with the Honja Hi and the all-time favorite Sprint, both available in women and men’s sizes.
