ADIDAS Y-3 BY YOHJI YAMAMOTO Mesh/Leather Drive Mocs

Haven't bought a card yet? Well, you’re not alone, it seems. A recent survey has revealed that 45% of us don't bother to celebrate Father's Day. At all. A figure that dwarfs the same statistic for (not) observing Mothering Sunday - 18 per cent. Poor dad.
So why not buck the trend this year? Whether your old man is a magnet for all things cool or uncool, this drool-inducing loafer from adidas Y-3 by Yohji Yamamoto is bound to make you go that extra mile.

Sporty and spiffy all at the same time, this slip-on is an all-new shoe shape created by Yamamoto for adidas, and is expected to become a regular feature in the Y-3 footwear collection, returning every season with different innovative fabrics and finishes.
Featuring a mesh/leather contrast, this drive moc is sure to get your (and Dad’s!) style engines revving!
(RRP €280)
“adidas and I - we just like each other. Japanese and German people are intelligent sorts. Our working rhythm is the same.” So says Yohji Yamamoto, as he celebrates the 10th anniversary of Y-3. 2011 also happens to be a big year for the designer personally: it is the 30th anniversary of his debut in Paris; he is the subject of an extensive retrospective exhibition at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum; he is unveiling his autobiography (“My Dear Bomb”) in June, and we get to see the insides of his mind in a rare film, “This is my Dream” (due to be released on DVD in September - watch the trailer below).

Trivia: YeeEun, YooBin and SunYe of Korean pop sensation Wonder Girls don Y-3 footwear (available in Whoop!) as they attend the Y-3 SS2011 Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week at the Park Avenue Armory in New York.

レイバン サングラスの場合から考えると、もしレイバン wayfarer、レイバン RB3025、レイバン RB2140などのことが知ったら、それらの関連や設計者などの話題が作れられるでしょう。もしかして、レイバン RB2140の一本で、いろいろな話が作られると思います。
