Jun Takahashi and Takahiro Miyashita’s Vicinal Shows

at Pitti Uomo 2018


For the first time in their respective careers, UNDERCOVER‘s Jun Takahashi and TheSoloist.’s Takahiro Miyashita are staging adjacent shows at the reputable fashion collective, Pitti Immagina Uomo. Pitti’s own director of communications and events, Lapo Cianchi, reveals his delight at the exceptional event: “These two visionary Japanese designers, who also happen to be great friends, will stage back-to-back shows that will serve as a symbolic expression of not only their friendship, but also of the mutual respect for one another’s work.” This event signifies Takahashi’s return to Florence, Italy, after a nine year absence, Miyashita’s debut at Pitti as well as TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloist.‘s first show outside of Japan. Cianchi continues in elucidating the rarity of this alliance: “We believe that, independently of each other, Takahashi and Miyashita – with their personal inspiration, design, styling, and uncompromising production methods – are extraordinary figures on the contemporary fashion scene. And we are very happy to provide a platform for expressing their longstanding friendship that stems from their shared cultural and social backgrounds, starting from Tokyo’s street punk scene and a passion for music.” To read more about this binary showing, visit Pitti’s site here.
