Jun Takahashi cement's his influence with a new monograph book from Rizzoli. With extensive essays and over 200 photographs, its likely to be an indispensable resource for any fans of UNDERCOVER.
"The first comprehensive book on the work of Jun Takahashi of UNDERCOVER, an icon of Harajuku streetwear and the presumptive heir to the heavy mantle of Japanese deconstruction. Takahashi Jun’s fashion is not born out of an excessively intellectualized agenda. While not quite populist, his generative influences are instead romantic—even gothic. A fixture of the Paris collections for more than ten years—plus seventeen uninterrupted seasons in Tokyo prior to that—Takahashi’s life’s work confirms a maturation from self-conscious artifice and rebel pastiche to a steely, withering elegance all his own."
Pre-order the book now from Rizzoli as I imagine it will be sold out in no time.
