I wasn't supposed to post the menswear stuff at the beginning, it was supposed to come later (since style.com's review is only about the women's line) but.. anyway! here it goes..
Really day to day clothes.... need to see more close up and i am interested to see how they present the clothes.... Does anyone got the video? Its kind of interesting...
It's pretty bland, like I thought it would be after reading the review. Normal clothes are just so...boring.
I hate the concept they opted with, plus the clothes have nothing remotely fascinating about them. A lot of pieces look like things I could pick up at urban outfitters
What a fantastic presentation technique!! Realistically fashion is nothing without context.
i love the way they presented it but i have to agree that the clothes themselves are a bit on the boring side....but maybe if i saw them up close, mabye my opinion would change ....
Yeah, really standard unfortunately.
Really not a fan of this - unfortunately I'm trying hard but I just can't get past the ordinariness of it.
nice presentation and i love the boots
the story behind the story from this fashion month will circle around how a cadre of designers tried to challenge the fashion system as we know it. from burberry selling pieces immediately after a show to balenciaga (allegedly) barring vogue paris from its front row and now jun takahashi refusing to make "show pieces" just to get press, it's been an interesting season for the revolutionaries. i'm curious who will have more impact.
with respect to this show, i respect takahashi for having the bravery to show the clothes that everyone who ACTUALLY buys undercover knows him for. sure, we love the controlled insanity with which he broke onto the fashion scene, but the message from all fashion weeks is that it's better to show us something REAL. i commend him for doing that.
soooo nothing special
very nice presentation, also they remind me a lot of Cindy Sherman work, maybe she was involved because they are friends...
bored to death.
Though I agree this is definitely not one of his best... one thing I can't let go unsaid is that Jun's clothes, even when they look 'boring', you can be assured that they're not. He is one of those designers who puts most of his efforts into functional and often hidden details that are only discovered once you're wearing the garment. His fabric choices are always really thoughtful (often use materials like goretex), designs are often multi-functional, transformable, sometimes has things like temperature gauges and things inside his jackets, etc... he just generally puts a ton of thought and function into his clothes. Though the pieces may appear deceptively simple... because with UC, the devil is really in the details and it's guaranteed the clothing is much more special to wear/in person, than it would seem at first glance. The presentation this season is really cheesy, but it's just a collection of straightforward, multi-functional clothing designed for daily wear so I guess it gets the point across.
you couldnt have said it better.
furthermore, uc just gets it. the detail, innovation and quality is just mind blowing. people are saying that this collection is simple and boring, and i am sure that this thought will continue because of how under rated undercover is (and because there are only a handfull of fortunate stores that carry it)... but for people who buy and know the line, they know that the photos just give them 30% of what is really there.
