This season, Y-3 explores parts unknown with a brave, bold, kinetic collection inspired by aviation: its pioneering history and, tantalizingly, its future. Shown during Paris men’s fashion week at Couvent des Cordeliers, January 25th, 2015, the collection captured the magic of flight and the possibility of broadening horizons, pairing this message with elegant, sleek, strong sportswear and colorful accessories. Men’s and women’s pieces debuted side by side in a sharply tailored aesthetic—think peaked shoulders, cinched waists, and masterful outerwear—that at the same time pushed the limits of future tech. Models stalked the runway to music by Jiro Amimoto, enjoyed by front-row guests including adidas tennis icons Ilie Nastase and Jo-Wilfried Tsonga, perhaps a glimpse of what’s next on Y-3’s radar.
From the origins of humanities pursuit of flight to the exciting future of space travel, flight remains an endlessly fascinating subject matter that is eternally relevant. In this collection, Yohji Yamamoto melds these two worlds—the nostalgia for flight’s past and the promise of its future—to create clothes that break boundaries. Inspired by pioneers of flight like Amelia Earhart and the Royal Air Force, Yamamoto conjures a classic silhouette realized in futuristic fabrics and with a trailblazing modern spirit. Regal, refined, and elegant, these clothes elevate sport-style to new heights.

Our pick for the perfect luxury men's fragrance this holiday season is.....Issey Miyake's Nuit d’Issey. For the launch of his new fragrance for men, Issey Miyake, in collaboration with visual artist and photographer Ryan Hopkinson, releases us into the heart of a mysterious night. Here we find ourselves in aniconic crepuscular landscape where glimmering moonlight highlights the relief of a graphic, majestic nature. The kindly glow of the moon, which serves as a guide for the man brave enough to walk alone, cloaks the traveller and imbues him with the energy of the nocturnal elements. At night, emotions are amplified and magnified; sensations are intensified. Landmarks are lost and found anew in an immersive dive toward the discovery of a world unknowable in the light of day. Bold, free and brave, theNuit d’Isseyman commands admiration. Game for any experience, inclined to rise to challenges, he dives willingly. After his brief submergence, he resurfaces, filled with a natural power to attract... the essence of this new fragrance.
