With London scheduled to play host to the 2012 Olympic Games, it was easy to see the reference in Y-3's Spring/Summer 2012 collection as the label sent its usual array of avant-garde inspired sportswear down the runway. Tartan shirts, graphic tees and sneakers printed with the Union Jack served to break up a sea of black while creative director Dirk Schönberger took a stab at various garment proportions, playfully cropping trousers and relaxing the fit of jackets. One suit in particular was successfully executed in a black and white checkerboard pattern, demonstrating that it doesn't matter how quickly you complete the race so long as you cross the finish line.
