Every Fashion Week, the Y-3 show is the one where paparazzi swarm out front, photographing arriving celebrities and all sorta of spectacle. This season, however, Yohji Yamamoto's line for Adidas went with a more intimate approach, perhaps involuntarily as the show fell on the same night as The Grammys.

In a windowless, brick-walled rough space in Soho, editors instead of celebs sat front and center, watching the progression from classic black Yohji to candy apple red and all-over buffalo plaid, finally coming back to darker tones in flapping leather jackets with mustangs printed on the back. The theme for this collection?as there's always a sporty theme?was rebel horseback riding? We're not too sure, but we are sure that the fannypacks, the onesie and neon headbands on a few of the men were not fan favorites. The mussed braids on the girls and that full-length, double-breasted plaid coat, however? Very nice, but imagining Vogue's Grace Coddington wearing it, with her flaming hair, is making us dizzy.
