Y-3 Sydney Is Open

Y-3 Sydney Is Open

We're excited to announce the launch of our newest project: Australia's first ever Y-3 store. 

A permanent collaboration between Yohji Yamamoto and Adidas founded in 2002, Y-3 is credited with inventing the clothing we now know as streetwear.

What is Y-3?
Y-3’s signature style combines engineered garments and intensive performance with Yamamoto’s singular elegance and strong tailoring. The result is a modern uniform of the streets— designed in Japanese and German ateliers and intended for the world.

Fuelled by the innovations of adidas and expressed in the style of Yohji Yamamoto, Y-3 creates progressive apparel, footwear, and accessories—a vision driven by both the sports icon and the renowned designer.



Art vs Sport
Designed in Japan and capturing the pioneering and innovative spirit of Y-3, the store design recontextualises materials and colour palettes usually found in the sporting arena in an art gallery-like setting. Portuguese cork columns, hand-painted fabric-covered walls, and discs of mottled rubber and recycled rainbow-flecked plastics create an unexpected synergy between natural and synthetic materials. 



The New Y-3 Collection
For over 20 years Y-3 has pioneered a uniquely disruptive approach to sportswear, evocatively blending Japanese craft with German innovation through the brand’s inimitable design language and rebellious vision. Reimagining the very foundations of the brand, the current collection blends Japanese craft with German engineering as the brand subversively looks ahead to a new era of elevated design and avant-garde aestheticism. 



Y-3 Sydney is the first Y-3 store in Australia and is now open at Westfield Sydney, just next door to Sorry Thanks I Love You. We started the transformation of level one at Westfield Sydney about a year ago, and we're excited to be part of its evolution into an indie luxury mash-up over the coming months. Find us on level 1 from 11am - 6pm every day. 


Y-3 Sydney is now open on level 1 at Westfield Sydney, Pitt Street Mall, Sydney.

Sydney Now: A FOMO Guide

Sydney Now: A FOMO Guide


Glorious sunny days, long lunches, sneaky swims, golden sun-downers, and late festival nights… It’s the best time of year to be a Sydney-sider. To feed your insatiable FOMO appetite and break your bank, we give you some of the best things we’ve done – or are about to do -  this month.


 Ramen & Chill At Rekodo 

Via Rekodo

A kissaten but make it Sydney.  While arguably the beautiful Klipsch La Scala speakers take centre stage, the cocktails and snacks at Matt Moran’s swish, new-ish Barangaroo eatery are a pretty delightful support act. The ‘Ramen & Chill’ cocktail is replete with actual noodle pieces frozen on crystalline ice cubes, while Moran’s watermelon, ume, coconut and shiso starter begets the novel pleasure of spearing melon with chopstick.

Where: Level 2, Barangaroo House
When: Every day except Monday
How: Click here, take your nightcap outside and enjoy the view.


 Sun & Sea

Via The Australian

A group of Lithuanian artists filled Town Hall with 26 tonnes of sand, umbrellas, frisbees and  scantily clad opera singers to create the setting for their boisterous performance about the end of the world.

Where: Town Hall, Sydney CBD
When: 6-8 January 2023
How: Click here to wallow in your FOMO 



Via Sydney Festival

A performance that classifies itself as a ‘fucked up musical’ is a work that we’re excited about. Created by Charlie Chaplin’s grandson, this outrageous experience is a melange of theatre, acrobatics, mime and dance in a spinning, confusing, utterly delightful room.

Where: Roslyn Packer Theatre, Walsh Bay
When: Until 25 January
How: Book here and grab a drink at Maybe Sammy while you’re down that way.


Dinner at Fontana

Via Good Food 

If your high-school classroom was a restaurant headed by Sydney’s coolest chef… Harry Levy (of Don Peppino’s fame) is back with some of the tastiest Italian and best understated service in Sydney.

Where: Above a Vietnamese joint in Redfern (133a Refern Street, Redfern)
When: Wednesday – Saturday from 5.30pm
How: Book here and no doubt see an off-duty celeb while you’re there. 


Yoga at Egg Of The Universe

Via Yellowtrace

Heated yoga can be gross. At Egg of The Universe it’s the good-sweaty kind, and you can chase it with a tasty and vice-free breakfast in their excellent wholefoods-centric cafe.

Where: 713 Darling Street, Rozelle
When: Yoga from 6.30am – 7.30pm
How: Unlimited10-day $30 intro passes are available here 


Sake-tinis at Maho Magic Bar

Via Maho Magic Bar 

Rather than making it your destination, the best way to enjoy this pop-up Japanese cocktail-bar-cum-magic-show is as a pitstop on the way somewhere else – much like a caravan at Burning Man.

Where: Tumbalong Park, Darling Harbour
When: Tuesday – Sunday until 29 January
How: Book here and s
top by the giant luminescent sculptures at Cupid’s Koi Garden on the way


Sunset Swim At Seven Shillings

 Via Secret Sydney

The water quality in Sydney harbour is at historic highs. Longer than Milk Beach and closer than Camp Cove, Seven Shillings is one of the best secret harbour beaches in Sydney. (We’re not ready to tell you about the others just yet.)

Where: St Mervyns Ave, Point Piper
When: Gates are open until sundown.
How: Go at high tide 


Set Menu at Kuro 

Via Kuro

The best Japanese in Sydney you’ve never heard of, thanks to Michelin-starred chef Taka Teramoto. It’s set menu only here, which means you can sit back and enjoy the sweet relief of knowing that fine-dining in Sydney is not in fact dead. Must try: black karage and wagyu. 

Where: 368 Kent Street, Sydney
When: Lunch and dinner Tuesday – Saturday
How: Book here 


The Whale at Westpac Open Air Cinema


The Open Air Cinema at Macquarie’s Chair is, in our humble view, the best open air cinema on the planet, provided you’re not braving drizzle in a godforsaken poncho. This year’s program is solid but will be topped, we think, by the Australian premier of psychological thriller The Whale on 22 January.


Where: Mrs Macquarie’s Chair, Sydney
When: Through to 21 Febuary
How: Book here but eat somewhere nice first 


Just landed: Pleats Please Bias Backpack

Just landed: Pleats Please Bias Backpack

A new delivery from Pleats Please Issey Miyake has arrived at Sorry Thanks I Love You, including the very svelte Bias Pleats Backpack. These pieces are only available in very limited numbers at our Westfield Sydney store.

Find us in the basement at Westfield Sydney in Pitt Street Mall, every day from 11am - 6pm.
