All eyes are on Paris as Fashion Week takes over the French capital. Head to our Paris Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2019 hub to find all the latest news from the industry’s best houses, brands, and designers.
After hearing Takashi Murakami, Ronnie Fieg and others share their thoughts on Virgil Abloh and OFF-WHITE’s FW19 collection from Paris Fashion Week, we’re back to dive into another PFW show, as Tim Blanks, Anwar Carrots, Borre Akkersdijk and Mandy Sekiguchi react to Jun Takahashi‘s UNDERCOVERFW19 debut.
Drawing inspiration from Stanley Kubrick’s classic 1970s film A Clockwork Orange, Takahashi managed to keep it fresh once again, while simultaneously wowing onlookers. Backed by music from the film, Takahashi and UNDERCOVER showed iconic imagery from the movie, plastered on various garments, in addition to introducing a much-talked-about sneaker collaboration with Nike.
The general consensus from Tim Blanks, Anwar Carrots, Borre Akkersdijk, Mandy Sekiguchi and our own Jian DeLeon is that Jun Takahashi and UNDERCOVER undoubtedly delivered with their FW19 collection, as the designer has a knack for keeping fans of the brand guessing as to what’s next — in a good way, of course.
To hear exactly what these industry insiders thought about UNDERCOVER FW19, press play above.
