Craft and fabric manipulation are normal within the language of haute couture. But in recent years, various streetwear and avant-garde brands have incorporated them into their own ways of constructing fascinating and titillating fashions. Y’s is one of the latest to do so for their Resort 2019 collection. Here, they worked with the Japanese dyeing technique Yuzen, an extremely delicate skill of hand-painting fabric to produce a baroque-like quality. It gave beautiful color to a brand widely known for their use (in some cases overuse) of black. In fact, color was quite abundant in this offering, what with the olive green utilitarian pieces and the denim blue separates. But in essence, even though there was more color here than usual, the overall aesthetic remained largely minimalist, which is sure to excite the fans of the brand while possibly attracting new clients as well.
