”My style inspirations are David Bowie, David Sylvian, Ryuichi Sakamoto. Styles I like: bold colors with some architectural interest, high waists, sharp collars, New Wave androgyny, pattern mixing, glam with some malevolence, tweed, colorful fustiness.”
It’s no secret I’m a fan of Jun Takahashi’s creations, be it under his Undercover label or the unmatched technical-wear from the Gyakusou collaboration with Nike. His unique approach merges aesthetic and functionality as few others, often tweaking otherwise ordinary garments. For Undercover’s latest lookbook, named “Season #1″, Takahashi tapped none other than Radiohead’s Thom Yorke to sport his pieces while cruising Japanese backgrounds.
