Below is a mix from Jun Takahashi of UNDERCOVER.
We would like to present to you a new collaboration between Undercover and the scent-maker Mad et Len. As you probably know we hold both in high regard, so we are particularly giddy about this one. This type of a collab is after our own hearts, done between people who hold each other in high regard and who decided to take advantage of each other’s talents and push the boundaries of their respective creative senses.
The vibe of this home fragrance capsule is minimal – it consists of three essential products, the candle, the potpourri, and the room spray. You can see the product descriptions below. The distribution on this is quite limited – for now you can only buy them at the Undercover flagship in Aoyama in Tokyo, and soon at the Mad et Len boutique in Paris. But we will update you once the stuff hits stateside, including our own e-commerce store.
Several days ago we learned of the passing of the milliner and hairdresser Katsuyo Kamo. He was one of the most creative and sought after collaborators, working with Undercover, Junya Watanabe, Anrealage in Japan, and Europeans like Haider Ackermann, Chanel, and Fendi. His incredibly headpieces were especially indispensable to the image-making at Undercover, whose designer Jun Takahashi counted Kamo as a friend.

We are back with our holiday gift guide, lest you think that we are all serious all the time.
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.
