Designer Spotlight: Undercover
Tokyo-based designer Jun Takahashi’s Undercover is a punk-infused, American style inspired luxury streetwear brand. Taking after the punk-meets fashion designers Vivienne Westwood and Rei Kawakubo before him, Takahashi wanted to make punk elegant and interpret culture into his fashions. This season, Takahashi took influence from Artist Cindy Sherman – printing her face on dresses, tees and jackets floating down the runway. The most obvious influence, however, was Steven King’s The Shining. Takahashi sent a pair of ‘twins’ down in each look, the final in Grady Twins costume, one dress dripping with red beading.
Our top picks from Spring 2018 are the graphic tees for men and women, a silky skirt featuring a cartoon couple & schoolgirl inspired frocks for women.
