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.
For Autumn/Winter 2020, Undercover stays the cinematic course that recent past collections have tread, but adds a traditional Japanese element. Having dealt in the uncertainty of the future with 2001: A Space Odyssey and A Clockwork Orangeand the bloody suspense of Suspiria, Jun Takahashi delves into the historical, with Akira Kurosawa's Throne of Blood, a 1957 classic retelling of Macbeth, set in feudal Japan.
Undercover's famous sense of chaos is well represented, as the cutting edge, avant garde design sensibilities collide with swords, arrows, samurai armor, and mukade.
