The new collection from Undercover was the first to be designed from Jun Takahashi’s home, while under a nationwide lockdown in April 2020. Rather than imbue the collection with the panic of the catastrophic crisis in the world outside, Takahashi used his creative outlet as a way of imagining beyond it. The result is a collection that breathes with the continuity of previous Undercover seasons, with trademark prints taking aim at common objects of modern life and pop-cultural icons alike. Despite this continuity, for Takahashi, there is no returning to before the pandemic, stating in interview, “I cannot return to the life I had before. I must continue to push forward down the path that is unique for Undercover. Make a new life. Make new noise.”
A novel addition to the new collection from Japanese vanguards Undercover, the New Noise Face Towel is exactly as its name suggests. Here in the gray colourway, this small towel features the words “New Noise” on the face surrounded by lines of emphasis in reference to the label’s longstanding motto, “we make noise not clothes,” as well as Jun Takahashi’s recent comments regarding creative pursuits in the pandemic era.
