Y-3 has joined forces with Adidas Terrex to work on an outerwear capsule centered around GORE-TEX material. Carrying on with the outdoor inspiration from its FW21 collection, Y-3 will be delivering this new release on October 14th, featuring both an apparel and a footwear line.
The Y-3 Terrex capsule combines the technical know-how from Adidas Terrex and Yohji Yamamoto’s avante-garde design influences, which are hard to miss honestly. Yamamoto’s signature aesthetic can be identified in both the clothing and the sneakers, which fuse style and functionality in this new release.
The apparel line is made up of two outdoor items: the RUGGED GTX JACKET and the MELTON GTX DOWN PARKA. The first one is made of 100% recycled nylon plain weave, while the second one is made of melton wool, nylon and 90% goose down-filled shell.
Both the jacket and the parka are constructed in GORE-TEX fabric as well. To top off the clothing items are Y-3 and Terrex branding placed on front.
Regarding the footwear, the capsule releases for the first time ever the new waterproof Y-3 TERREX SWIFT R3 GTX sneaker. It comes in two colorways: the Bliss/Black/Bold Orange and the Black/Black/Bold Orange.
Featuring GORE-TEX material in both the lining and the membrane, the brand-new pair arrives in a sneaker-boot silhouette with continental rubber outsole and inner neoprene gusset for extra protection. The wearer will be able to choose between the multi-purpose lace and zipper system, depending on his/her needs.
Less than 24hs to go, you’ll be able to find the Y-3 TERREX SWIFT R3 GTX sneakers in Adidas online and physical stores, in the label’s app and in select retailers. The apparel capsule will apparently see its launch later in November.
