The wait may have been punishing to get inside Y-3’s newest store in SoHo on Tuesday night, but fans of the Adidas line by Yohji Yamamoto were nonetheless happy to fete the store’s sleek 3,000-sq.-ft interior, which follows the brand’s signature retail concept and features a sublevel enhanced by a large skylight over a staircase and an imposing mirrored wall. Y-3 already has stores across Europe, Asia and the US; this is the second Y-3 store to open in New York in 2008.
