UNDERCOVER MEN'S SPRING/SUMMER 2011

Jun Takahashi is definitely one of my favorite streetwear designers. I have been following his work for 4 years now. And he still doesn't fail to amaze me with his quirky innovative designs and impeccable tailoring. Takahashi is known for his mind-blowing prints on fabrics, sling bags and reinventing classic pieces like a basic tee, a raincoat parka or a tailored blazer. His latest collection "Underman" is a throwback to 80s nostalgia. Who doesn't love that era? Too bad I was not even born yet so I couldn't really comment. Hahhahah! Kidding aside, I have to give mad props to Takahashi for the fantastic Godzilla-King Kong feel of the lookbook-complete with miniature cabs and earthlings. What a very brilliant idea! I totally love the concept.  The fashion is larger than life vibe totally resonated on the pictures. Only the Japanese can pull off something like this!
