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. Even these staples, however, are reinvented in line with the concept of the season.
The Undercover Fallen Man Hoodie in White is a relaxed-fit, classic hooded sweatshirt. On the front, the words ‘Fallen Man’ appear in stylised print, the name of this season’s collection inspired by Akira Kurosawa’s 1957 adaptation of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth set in feudal Japan, Throne of Blood. Above the name of the collection, are arrows, arranged as if coming down, precipitating ‘the fall.’ This hoodie also features a hood with adjustable drawstring and metal eyelets; a front kangaroo pouch; a stylised target motif printed on the right arm; and ribbed cuffs & bottom hem.
