Undercover’s Jun Takahashi grew up drawing monsters, robots and nightmares before heading up Punk Band Tokyo Sex Pistols. His life now, though, has settled down: it’s Paris Fashion Week, shoe-of-the-year worthy Nike collaborations and running a brand labelled ‘the essence of Japanese cool’. Normal Dad stuff, then. Undercover’s AW18 collection, inspired by Stanley Kubrick’s 2001: A Space Odessey (amongst other things) is a prime example of his pop-culture laden conceptual world building that gained Rei Kawakubo’s mentorship.
