For more than 25 years Undercover, led by founder and head designer Jun Takahashi, has occupied a peculiar position on the fashion landscape. The Tokyo label is founded on the playful mocking of both high fashion and streetwear’s norms, an approach encapsulated in their “We make noise not clothes” motto.
Though the Undercover name has gained particular traction thanks to the label’s conceptual collections, theatrical runway shows, and high-profile pop-culture collaborations, high-quality, everyday staples form just as important a part of their collections. While some of these staples serve as vehicles for Takahashi’s high-concept seasonal graphics, with pieces such as the Undercover Back Pocket Hooded Sweat in black, the Undercover designer takes classic silhouettes, and through subtle alterations brings them into the Undercover universe.
The Undercover Back Pocket Hooded Sweat in black is a relaxed-fit, classic hooded sweatshirt with avant-garde highlights courtesy of Takahashi’s visionary hand. As well as the standard front kangaroo pouch, this pullover hoodie features a large pouch pocket at the rear with zip closure and a seasonal print: ‘Wir machen Larm, keine Klamotten,’ the label’s motto in German. Other unique features of this piece include a scuba hood design with nylon drawstrings at the front and rear; adjustable waist with nylon drawstring; and adjustable bottom hem featuring nylon drawstrings and toggles. Also features ribbed cuffs.
