adidas & Yohji Yamamoto to celebrate ten years of Y-3
Dec '12
In 2013, adidas and Yohji Yamamoto celebrate ten years of Y-3, a collaboration based on seeming opposites combining adidas’ sports technology and Yohji Yamamoto’s style aesthetic.

The communication campaign for Spring/Summer 2013 captures the essence of Y-3, led by photographer and director Pierre Debusschere, the  campaign explores the partnership of the opposed – the transmission of ideas from the two worlds of Japan and Germany.

Pierre Debusschere’s photographs are a celebration of motion and exploration of movement that draws on the bold colors and graphic lines of the collection. Through the use of visual effects, the photographs have been distorted to provide a palpable sense of kinetic energy to the images.

The Spring/Summer 2013 campaign film is an evolution of these themes - study of movement, distortion and transformation.

Through a cutting edge interactive online interface located on the Y-3 website, the user will be able to engage with the video content and through manipulation of sound and image will create their own video clips to share online with others.

In addition, Y-3 commissioned Tim Hecker, noted as one of the most pre-eminent figures currently making ambient music, to compose an original work exclusively for the Spring/Summer 2013 interactive video.

As with much of Tim's work this piece plays with notion of variations on a theme, resulting in individual loops which shift and pulse in time with the visual effects of the campaign film.
