adidas Y-3 Qasa High “Orange” Celebrates Brand’s 20th Anniversary
There are many anniversaries going down in 2022, from the Air Force 1’s 40th to the Air Max 1’s 35th. Less celebrated than those, the 20th birthday of Yohji Yamamoto’s Y-3 has been quietly doing its thing in the background — which has fittingly been the case for the last two decades.
Blending Avantgarde design with minimal color-blocking, Y-3 has continued to be both overzealous and understated, and their famous Adidas Y-3 Qasa High is an exemplar of that. Fittingly, it returns to the fore as part of the brand’s third seasonal offering that builds on the “20 Years: Re-Coded” thematic narrative. Chapter 3 is an auspicious ode to one of the brand’s most iconic colors – Orange – as Y-3 delves into the past in order to boldly envisage a visceral new future.
The seasonal offering is highlighted by a selection of pieces that feature contrasting logos, bold blocking, and, of course, fluorescent Orange color palettes. Conceived as a harmonious cacophony of contrasts, the collection also boasts new takes on football crest logos and reimagined team sponsor graphics. Meanwhile, an array of dynamic footwear sees the Y-3 HOKORI III, the Y-3 ULTRABOOST 22, and a bright orange colorway of the iconic Y-3 QASA take center stage, as well as ushering in the arrival of the brand’s expressive take on an archival adidas classic: the Y-3 GAZELLE.
Look for the adidas Y-3 Qasa High “Orange” to release on July 15th at select retailers and adidas.com/Y-3. The retail price tag is set at $400 USD.
