Jun Takahashi's UNDERCOVER teams up with Japanese department store ISETAN for a pop up shop between the period of May 3rd - May 14th. Located in the Shinjuku flagship location, UNDERCOVER offers a number of special womenswear items. The offerings utilizes cartoon styled designs with the theme of "LOST YOUTH" resulting in playfully spirited designs. Additionally, advance sale products from UNDERCOVER's "Portrait in Jazz" 17SS collection are seen in piano themed totes and fringe adorned pieces.
Aside from tote bags that could be considered unisex, the items most interesting to me are created in collaboration with KUTANI SEAL. Based on the traditional Kutani ceramics originating for Ishikawa prefecture, the classically constructed porcelain wares are juxtaposed with UNDERCOVER's whimsical one-eyed apples.
