Yohji Yamamoto's works with adidas remains to go strong as the Y-3 show, 'NICE TO MEET YOU,' releases in Paris' Grant Palais on Sunday. This upcoming fall, the brand's Winter 2018 collection will accelerate Y-3 towards a direction with larger-fitting silhouettes. The collection will merge together the familiar Y-3 footwear with the new garment's looks. There is a total of three different styles that the upcoming footwear focuses upon -- Kaiwa, Ekika, and the Bynder. A standout component of the footwear releases is the announcement of its upcoming work with athlete James Harden, in constructing shoes that involve the BOOST midsole technology.

Overall, the NICE TO MEET YOU show featured clothing pieces that remained true to Yamamoto's aesthetics. There is a blend of mostly monochromatic color schemes, with some navy blues as well. The actual pieces in the collection include a range of layered quilted jackets, oversized hoodies, sweatpants, jackets, and trousers.
