Who says sporting clothes can¡¯t be chic? Y-3, a recent addition to the China World Shopping Mall, started as a collaboration between Japanese-born designer Yohji Yamamoto and Adidas in 2002. And has since become its own style.
Although originally conceived as a sportswear line, Y-3 is actually more like a fashion brand, perfectly combining athletic and fashion elements in its design. Its collection features a minimal color palette of black, white and red, nicely in harmony with the store's black-and-white decor.
The collections include mini dresses, leather pants, blazers, shoes, and belts. A prime example of their style is their line of black suits with Swarovski crystal-encrusted shoulder stripes (RMB 3270). This chic suit will certainly provide a nice upgrade from those normal uninspired office wears.
The prices for the casual clothes range from RMB 800 to RMB 4,000; while, the shoes will cost you between RMB 2,000 and RMB 3,000. The shop assistants speak basic English, so simple conversation is not a problem.
