Spotlight: Jun Takahashi ✧

Japanese designer, Jun Takahashi, is the brilliant mastermind behind Undercover. Ever since I first saw Undercover's FW14 collection, Takahashi has been one of my favorite designers. I loved the whole creepy avant-garde aesthetic he had for this collection:

The models wore medieval vampire-type outfits, ethereal crowns and even donned bright red contact lenses to add to the eeriness:

Takahashi also has a trademark punk-street style going on, which I love. In his SS14 collection, he captured the essence of punk while still showing elegance and sophistication with a monochromatic color scheme.

In the finale, lights were turned off to showcase his captivating LED shirts. From what I've read, the words on the shirts were inspired by lyrics from a band called Savages and their post-punk album, Silence Yourself.

Jun Takahashi is the master of cool when it comes to fashion and I really look forward to what he comes up with in the future. You can check out his website at
