The Empower-up collection celebrates new surfaces and textures. The eighth collection of YCS has an optimistic, vivid appearance with a distinctive focus on decorative leathers. Active and technical styling is a source of inspiration for the F/W19 silhouettes of the collection. This inspiration results in new hybrid forms for the low tops and mid tops, while classic dress details evolve in the original Tassel and Fringe Low Top. Outdoor and utility applications create unique hardware details for the new Technical Runner and and Strap low top and High top. The color pallette consists of rich tones, which gives the color palette vitality to the new collection. Cosmic Sapphire, Park Green and Octane are essential statement colors for this seasonal palette and add a fresh aspect to the luxurious organic tones. The textured leathers such as the ballsurface and croco leather contrast strongly with the peach touch nubucks and clean nappa leathers, enhancing the rich aesthetics of the Empower-Up collection.
