The Berlin Chronicles

Y-3’s latest collection pays homage to the never-ending spirit of creativity, channeling adidas’ sporting legacy and Yohji Yamamoto’s avant-garde sensibility.
Shifting from Berlin’s music scene to its everyday community of artists, Y-3 Fall/Winter 2023 Chapter 4 is a celebration of the dynamic city’s creative energy – as told by those who live it.

“In Berlin you can create your own existence”


The newest collection from adidas and Yohji Yamamoto challenges conceptions and pushes the boundaries of design. Informed by Y-3’s relentlessly avant-garde approach, each piece takes cues from the Three Stripes’ legacy.

“The city teaches me that it’s okay to be myself and no-one is judging you for who you are”


Spotlighting the creative energy of Berlin,  Y-3 partners with some of the city’s most progressive artistic forces: painter and dancer, Cecile, sculptor and video artist, Henri, music producer, Gabriel, tattoo artist and painter, Sabi, agricultural sciences student, Mareline, art student, Yuuki, and DJ and music producer, Jannis.
