Y3 FW09 NEW YORK 02-15-09Now this is a collection that will appeal to sporty Denverites. Designed by Yohji Yamamoto for Adidas, Y-3 proves that modern, sporty, and stylish can happily coexist in a clothing collection.

The Gist: Much of the women’s collection is given a menswear feel with ties, military references, suspenders, and jodhpur pants that lace just below the knee. Jackets come in a variety of styles: fitted with one-button, cropped and double-breasted, and military jackets with velvet trim (a gray with purple velvet is a knockout).

Outerwear is also a high point, with items like a dramatic black wool cape, a cropped and belted trench, and collegiate coats and jackets with white toggles.

Look for It At: Lawrence Covell (women’s only), 225 Steele St., 303-320-1023
