Most days it’s positively impossible to get to anywhere, let alone to work on time. “What’s eating away the minutes, paisano?” your boss asks, arms folded, while putting you on a cautionary probation. Lost minutes in front of the mirror, moving hair part from left to right to middle? Alleged phone calls to Russia? The inability to dodge rush hour traffic? Espresso spills? Early morning boudin blanc vs. noir sausage debates? Full disclosure: we’re actually picking through ten years worth of Yohji Yamomoto x adidas sneakers!
This year, the Japanese visionary, Yohji, has another thing to celebrate besides his recently opened V&A Museum retrospective. It’s also the 10-year anniversary of when Yohji and adidas first teamed up to form something unique: beautiful, fashion-forward sportswear melding the technology of adidas fabric with groundbreaking, avant-garde design. To commemorate, this coming fall, Yohji and adidas bring a limited edition collection of “X” shoes. Our closet expands with eight new styles, each limited to 300 pieces, delaying our morning commute even further. Sorry, bosses everywhere.
