Superheroes might be the world's only remaining hope. This is the message of a playful, surreal, and optimistic collection from Y-3, which showed for the first time during Paris Men's Fashion Week at the Couvent des Cordeliers on Sunday, January 19, 2014. Men's and women's pieces were presented together in a range of retro-tinged primary colors. Clothes emphasized functionality and modularity to underscore Y-3's commitment to the vision of sport-style. Stunningly revealed in an epic black and white setting with a neon light backdrop, models stalked the runway to superhero music themes and were watched by a front-row crowd including music icon Kanye West, Parisian socialites Louise Monot, Caroline Proust and Louis-Marie de Castelbajac, German actor Clemens Schick as well as adidas athletes Gwladys  Épangue (Olympian/Taekwondo), Laura Flessel-Colovic (Olympian/Fencing) and Jimmy Vicaut (Sprinter).
"The collection is an hommage to the couturiers of the 60's. I wanted to infuse a this spirit into it. I was also thinking of super heroes and the kind of clothes they wear. Cut for an active and fighting life style, so I brought these two worlds together" Yohji Yamamoto
