“10 years ago, together with adidas, we created something that did not exist before, and we completely projected the future,” says Yamamoto. “My desire was to make sportswear elegant and chic. adidas has always a very personal inspiration to me, and it continues to enrich my creative life.”

The fragrance opens with a masculine sparkling accord of cardamom and elemi associated with a modern touch of Tagete. The heart reveals an elegant mix of Virginian  Cedar Wood and Lavandin supported by the sensual warmth of black pepper.

The wake releases the captivating power of Patchouli, Vetiver and Tonka Bean which gives the fragrance its unique character.

“Making perfume is a huge difference from designing clothes. It involves so many people and advices. But in the end both have to seduce the senses.” – Yohji Yamamoto, Y-3 Creative Director

Each season, Y-3 creates 21st-century sportswear that captures the essence of fashion and culture at that given moment. Yamamoto’s renegade designs, bolstered by the innovative fabrics and articulations of adidas, are instantly iconic and completely contemporary.

Black Label will come in a 75ml bottle and will bee available inn Y-3 flagship stores including Singapore from Autumn Winter 2013.
