Yohji Yamamoto’s obsession with “air between the body” leads to a series of breakthroughs in fabrication that define Y-3’s Spring/Summer 2019 collection. Inspired by sailing and parachuting, the range leverages the latest adidas innovations to offer Y-3’s lightest-ever apparel and footwear.

Essential to this concept is the use of revolutionary materials that are lightweight yet strong and functional. Enter the technology of SHAKEDRY™ GORE-TEX®— the world’s lightest GORE-TEX®—which yields the Utility Hoodie Jacket and the oversize Long Coat. Windproof and waterproof yet breathable, packable, and exceptionally lightweight, these pieces are paragons of both form and function.

The drape of parachutes inspired the billowing shape of the Long Coat, which features a PFC-free water-repelling surface, double-entry side pockets, sealed seams, buttoned storm flap, and drawcord-adjustable hood and hem—all while weighing in at a mere 346 grams. The Utility Hoodie Jacket, meanwhile, offers hands-free versatility with its multi-pocket design. The oversize piece boasts a full two-way zip, adjustable cuffs, and a drawcord-adjustable hem. A signature Y-3 GORE-TEX® logo badge adorns both.

Y-3 GORE-TEX® is available in select retailers, Y-3 stores, and www.y-3.com.
