The time has finally come for the much awaited Undercover x Evangelion collection to drop in stores, and we decided to revisit the exclusive interview Jun Takahashi kindly gave to us surrounding this collection after the March show. We are carrying the drop at ANT/DOTE. You can purchase the collection on our web store – we ship worldwide – or visit our store in Atlanta.
Last week Jun Takahashi presented his new collection, titled “CREEP VERY” for Undercover via a live show in Tokyo.
It’s a Zoom / everything-from-home world out there, and like it or not we are all in it, including Jun Takahashi, the designer of Undercover.
Below is a mix from Jun Takahashi of UNDERCOVER.
Paris, France – “Dries, now there is a real designer,” sighed my AirBnB landlord, after expressing his frustration about working for a major, and majorly uninspiring Parisian house. Indeed, he is and he proved it yet again with another sublime show. Each seat had a red rose on it with handwritten “DVN” X some other initials, which I only understood were that of Christian Lacroix, the legendary Parisian designer whose label has been defunct for some time and whom Van Noten brought on to collaborate for this collection. This was a “collab” in the Van Noten vein – a sign of mutual respect that did not stink of a money grab like many collaborations do. It was soulful, not cynical. And the clothes were sublime, with faint military influences on some pieces and with couture-like shapes on others that had Lacroix’s signature on them. Of course there were explosion of flowers, color, and couture-like embroidery. When Dries Van Noten brought Lacroix for the final bow it was a fashion moment fo sure. This was a longing for an idealized past of the kind I can get behind – bringing out people to refresh our collective fashion amnesia. Which made me think that we are not exactly forgetful – we do remember the greats… when we are reminded of their existence.
We would like to present to you the new Undercover documentary about the making of its first Paris show, “The New Warriors.”
Good news for all you Undercover fans! We have been able to finagle some very rare Undercover books.
