Jun Takahashi’s Undercover label is a genuine pioneer in the world of fashion. Combining his youthful love of the Sex Pistols with an avant-garde, elegant, high fashion sensibility, Takahashi’s original designs redefined the boundaries between runway and street.
Undercover has expanded upon Takahashi’s punk-influenced beginnings and become one of the most revered and influential brands on the planet.
Undercover's Spring/Summer 2020 deals in a black dominant, infusion of minimalism. The scaled back aesthetic serves as the backdrop for an exploration of man's underlying dark and violent impulses, exemplified by the Dylan Thomas quote I hold a beast, an angel and a madman in me, that features on a number of pieces in the collection. A balancing scale that teeters between acknowledgement and celebration of these typically suppressed depths, Takahashi dresses them up in an almost confrontational elegance, in true Sympathy for the Devil fashion.
