A Pre-collection That Harks Back to UNDERCOVER’s Roots, Offering Everyday Essentials
Discover a collection that returns to the core of the brand. Jun Takahashi’s words are clear: “UNDERCOVER returns to the brand’s roots with Pre-Collection. The emphasis is on crafting ‘UNDERCOVER-esque’ looks, substituting overarching seasonal themes with contemporary everyday wear.” Essentially, the UNDERCOVER Resort 2024 menswear collection offers a timeless wardrobe that effortlessly updates your seasonal attire.
A Fusion of Classic and Contemporary
In the UNDERCOVER universe, staples such as double denim, leathers, camp collar shirts, PVC, sweaters, and techy T-shirts reign supreme. The lookbook opens with a denim jacket paired with matching jeans; the jacket features multiple pockets and hemline zippers, curving upwards to reveal the underlying shirt and echoing the jeans’ design elements.
Leather, PVC, and Traditional Fabrics in Perfect Harmony
A black trench coat trimmed around the collar with leather marks the introduction of this edgy material, which is later utilized to craft an elongated punk-ish biker jacket, a classic biker jacket interpretation, and small carry accessories. Takahashi also showcases his brand’s affection for PVC with tinted clear overcoats and layers, such as a cardigan-style covering.
Simultaneously, traditional garments are reimagined in wool and other conventional fabrics, including a green wool cardigan and bomber jackets. The collection remains “fool-proof” – some shirts are spliced, graphic tees are cut and repositioned, but nothing that pushes too far beyond comfort zones.
An Evergreen Collection
In essence, UNDERCOVER’s Resort 2024 collection is a harmonious blend of classic and contemporary. It is a testament to the brand’s roots, reimagining everyday essentials with an UNDERCOVER twist, creating a wardrobe that’s always in style, and perfect for all occasions. Takahashi’s latest offering embodies fuss-free, classic pieces sure to be coveted additions to any wardrobe.
