Y-3 opens at Bonifacio High Street
Posted on

The tough go shopping.
Yesterday after my meeting, I headed over to visit Jappy Gonzalez in the new Y-3 standalone store he’s opening at the new Bonifacio High Street extension.
Y-3 is the retail first store to open in the building, along with Fred Perry. To find it, go to Jamba Juice and look for the entrance to the new building on the right.
We were lucky to get a sneak peek—and first dibs—on the store and merchandise.

The Japanese were busy working when we arrived.

Tina Ong, Assistant Buyer of H&F Retail Concepts, is the person to look for. She knows all the pieces and wears them well.

The men’s pieces—I wish they had in girls’ sizes, like the shorts and track pants in one

The good news is: Yohji Yamamoto is back on track with clothes that are comfortable, practical, architectural, sporty, and doesn’t scream the Y-3 logo. Check out the new looks for Spring-Summer 2012:

Some of it reminds me of me!

I bought the shoes and stretch pants. I love the platformness of the shoes and the comfy pants—I need two* of these!

Loads of cool pieces for the guys

And oooh….is that a half-jacket?

*Warning: Jappy’s favorite number seems to be 2. So go before the 2nd piece gets sold out.
Visit Y-3 at the Bonifacio High Street Extension, next to Jamba Juice.
