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.”
Though the Undercover name has become synonymous with high-concept collections, theatrical runway shows, and high-profile pop-culture collaborations, high-quality, everyday staples form just as important a part of their oeuvre, providing the ideal canvas for Jun Takahashi’s provocative graphics.
Here in the white colourway, the Undercover Records Tee reimagines the Undercover as a record label, with hypothetical space-inspired branding and graphics screen-printed on the front and back. Cut from soft cotton jersey, this short-sleeve tee also features a ribbed crew neckline.
