Undercover is turning 30 this year and to celebrate the anniversary, designer Jun Takahashi has turned to some of his long-time friends in the Tokyo fashion scene. A list of legendary brands have signed up to offer their take on UC’s signature hybrid style with a series of leather sleeve down jackets with various mixed materials and detailing. Created in partnership with peers sacai, Kolor, Fragment design, TheSoloist and N.Hoolywood. The jackets all take a different tact to exploring the same style of garment. Sacai designer Chitose Abi gives her take on the trademark garment by bringing in elements of a knit riders jacket. Abe’s husband Junichi infuses elements of his brand Kolor’s style with a bright neon rendition. My favorite is the TAKAHIROMIYASHITA TheSoloist collaboration which adds insane looking goggles and gloves to the piece. N.HOOLYWOOD extends the length of the down jacket into with a parka-like body and hood. Fragment’s design is understandably understated with just a simple fragment logo hit on the back.
These should only be available directly through Undercover and they’ve posted some purchase information their website. The price range for these items range from ￥140,000 JPY (approximately $1,356 USD) to ￥240,000 JPY (approximately $2,325 USD). If you’re looking for other current season Undercover items, take a look at stockists like SSENSE , Selfridges and Luisviaroma.

The team at Fragment design collaborates with Jordan Brand to launch the first sneaker in the new remastered Jordan line. The sneaker is a take on the Black Toe black red Jordans but with premium leather and the fragment design insignia on the heel. These are highly sought after and a very limited release so expect them to go extremely quickly
Look for them to launch at online Nike Lab at 8AM Saturday, December 27 and also at a few other select retailers.
One of the best sneaker releases of the year with one of the worst product names drops today at 1PM at Nike Lab. This is the first in a series of four colorways that are the result of a collaboration with fragment design. Originally created in 1994, the Sock Dart was way ahead of it’s time. The sneaker is knit from a single piece upper varying in density and texture. Admittedly it took me a bit to come around to this sneaker, particularly with the strange flexible transparent strap in the place of laces. This is definitely one that heads are gonna regret sleeping on as it’s already been selling out quickly everywhere it’s dropped so far.
Look for the dark loden colorway of the sneaker to drop at 1PM on Nike Lab
