Shops – Inside Y-3, Suddenly, I Need Sneaker Wedges and a Kelly Green Tracksuit

Y-3, the collaboration label between Yohji Yamamoto and Adidas is quick on its feet! After I’d just seen the signage earlier this month, the 2,400-square-foot shop—its first in LA—is already opened at 8422 Melrose Avenue, featuring women’s and men’s apparel, kicks, punchy accessories, and the new Y-3 kids’ collection. Prices range from around $100 on up, with some pieces clearly in athletic territory, while others fit more in a sportswear category. I can’t say I’d actually workout in any of it—I go more the tattered tees and running shorts route—but I would be happy if my casual wear included some Y-3 gear… (A look at the shop after the jump.)
