Undercover RTW Fall 2014

Tokyo-based designer Jun Takahashi staged his Undercover show like a fairy tale, replete with models done up as regal queens in intricately woven crowns of braided hair, red undereye makeup and red contact lenses — like Alexander McQueen in Nick Knight’s portrait from 2010.  


The collection was a mash-up of sorts, with a nod to everything from Scottish tartans to delft tablewear prints and eastern influences, not to mention a wide variety of materials including leather, fur and silk.


Shawls in heavy fabrics abounded, sometimes morphing into capes, while scarves meandered around arms and necks and flowed out of slashes in the well-tailored jackets and oversize sweaters. Outerwear looked great and came in a wide range of styles including a trench and duffle coat.


Takahashi’s knack for manipulating everyday wardrobe pieces is exciting, as was his inventive show where snowlike sparkles showered the runway and some of the models cryptically held glowing apples like peace offerings.
