Pop-Up Pick: score conceptual shoes and chic sportswear at Y-3’s temporary Holt Renfrew shop
Following chic Parisian label Maison Kitsuné’s summer pop-up, Holt Renfrew’s Yorkdale location has landed another international import for fall: Y-3, iconic Japanese designer Yohji Yamamoto’s clothing line for Adidas (the “Y” stands for Yohji and the “3” represents Adidas’s classic three-stripe logo), which will be holding court inside the department store until the end of September. Known for its conceptual footwear (the brand has collaborated with designers like Rick Owens and Raf Simons for some seriously out-there kicks), the label’s Toronto pop-up is showcasing a variety of popular styles, including the sleek Qasa high-top and the colourful Riyal sneaker. It’s also selling some pieces of stylish sportswear, like hybrid hoodies and comfy track pants, plus a few hats and travel bags. Shoppers should prepare to see more than a few edgy takes on Adidas’s signature three stripes—our favourite is this bold graphic top.
Until Sep. 30. Holt Renfrew Yorkdale, 3401 Dufferin St., y-3.com
