Avid readers of Third Looks will know that one of my favorite designers is Jun Takahashi of Undercover. While the Spring/Summer collection of UU did not blow me away I was able to find a bunch of great wardrobe basics in the selection. This August will mark the release of the Fall/Winter 12/13 Uniqlo x UC collaboration and from what I can see it is a definite step up from the first collection. It seems that this collection parallels what Jun has been doing with his recent mainline UC collections (namely Open Strings and Psycho Color) in terms of texture and color palette. The outerwear is the strongest draw for me with the Utility coat(Warm lite liner), Body warm lite Padded jacket and Micro fleece hoodie being my standouts.
