Undercover Hamburger Soft Toy

01

Image

01. Presented in burger box packaging.

Words

I have never been much of a follower of limited edition Japanese toys, but Undercover's recently reissued plush hamburger is one such collectible I'm actually contemplating purchasing. It’s not just my affinity for America’s most enduring meal compelling me to do so, but also the gentle monster the brand have created and its wry packaging.

Undercover Long Coat

01

Image

01. Magnetized clamp closure.

Words

Hand graphics are some of the prominent imagery tying together Undercover's FW15 collection and there are a selection of classic coats featuring this illustrative embellishment. Anyone familiar with either version of the film Nosferatu, can surely draw a parallel between the hand’s rendering and those belonging to the film’s title character. By virtue of the graphic’s unique placement, it makes for an eccentric but still understated element. The external windowed pocket, fleece-like fabric and magnetized closure round out the modern details on this stylish long coat.

Undercover 03816 T-Shirt

01

Image

01. 100% cotton.

Words

Undercover’s Television pieces for Spring-Summer '15 created quite a stir when the collection was first shown last year, causing plenty of people to raise all kinds of grievances. Most seemed to call-out the large graphic treatments and liberal use of photos from their two album covers. I myself am a huge fan of Tom Verlaine and his fellow band members and feel they are far and away the strongest group associated with the late '70s NYC punk venue CBGB. For me, this T-shirt, while very pricey, uses all the right Marquee Moon references, making it just about the best one you can find for a band with an absolutely sterling output.

New pieces from Undercover have started to appear at the few retailers outside of Japan that carry the collection. Elements of luxury are combined with a distinct graphic language to create the high-end punk aesthetic which Jun Takahashi is known for.

Undercover N6B02 Tote Bag

01

Image

—01. Satin finished nylon.

Words

Jun Takahashi’s Undercover label steadily produces some highly technical but still incredibly straightforward and usable designs for daily life. This collaboration with Porter Yoshida & Co. is one of the most attractive and functional tote bags I have come across. The military inspiration looks particularly nice, while the three exterior cargo pockets make frequently used items that much easier to get to.

Undercover N4903-1 Sweater

01

Image

—01. 100% wool.

Words

Featuring a boatneck collar, salt and pepper flecked wool and unfinished edges, this casual fall sweater takes reference from the Nineties rock aesthetic that Jun Takahashi is often inspired by. The somewhat sloppy fit suits the style and makes for an appealing and easy to wear garment.
