Store Scout – Y-3 Los Angeles, Fairfax District
BY GILLIAN CASTRO
Y-3 has opened its new Los Angeles location in the city’s Fairfax district. The 1,500-square-foot space holds the label’s men’s and women’s collections, as well as footwear and accessories. The store launches with the brand’s Spring 2018 collection, in addition to the exclusive re-release of its ComplexCon collection.
The store’s design is based off of the ethos of Y-3 “Born from culture, built for purpose, daringly simple.” The space is conceived from a free-standing box with design contrast between natural and man-made. Its exterior look is articulated in Shou-sugi-ban, a heritage Japanese method of woodwork often used on homes and temples, and the interior has brushed stainless steel panels.
The central structure is inspired by Chashitsu, traditional Japanese tea rooms. This space will hold the brand’s main apparel pieces. Surrounding this will be minimal design, including a blank white canvas with one linear steel shelf displaying Y-3 footwear.
