Usually when we think of Adidas, we think of tracksuits and tees, sneakers and other stylish active wear pieces. How about draped tops, sexy heels and edgy street wear? Before you start thinking I've lost my mind, check out the new Y-3 line of industrial chic, totally edged out pieces by Adidas. Designed by Yohji Yamamoto (hence the Y, plus '3' for Adidas' signature stripes), you know you're in for a treat of urban-chic, lust-worthy designs.With an somber color palette of black, white, grey tones and the occasional muted maroon, Y-3 featured loose, draped tees and knit tops to go over super skinny leggings or chic wide leg pants that are moody and stylish. Fitted and flattering jackets and coats are the perfect topper to the urban inspired layering pieces of soft sumptuous knits and look effortlessly sexy and cool with Y-3's amazing footwear that have a sporty vibe but are nothing like sneakers. The menswear side to Y-3 delivers the same aesthetic of laid-back edginess and too-cool-for-school appeal and pieces for both genders include the signature three stripes on shoes and pants.

Rosa Cha designs are usually associated with unique swimsuits and bikinis that are fun and sexy, but what happens when it's not summer anymore? Rosa Cha has transformed their designs seamlessly to light and breezy to more appropriate for the colder weather. This was the label's first time showing in Brazil since new creative director and designer Alexandre Herchcovitch took over, and the new runway collection did not disappoint. Models strutted the catwalk in retro lingerie-inspired swimsuits and separates, as well as tailored skirts and blazers featuring expert draping and lace overlays. The pieces celebrated the female form, showing curves, but still staying sophisticated and original. Sexy cutouts, strategic paneling and bare midriffs in black, neutrals and multi-color patterns were given even more of an edge with exposed zippers and straps. The collection featured everything from lacy lingerie, innovative separates and colorfully modern diving suits while keeping with a common look and theme. Says Herchcovitch, "This is a fundamental moment for us to be able to use the brand's DNA in a larger number of pieces that go from fitness, spa, and the beach, to outwear," and the new F/W 2010 Rosa Cha collection does just that.
