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 backpack jackets that Junya Watanabe designed in collaboration with The North Face was one of the most memorable outerwear pieces to drop last winter. They flew off shelves and were a must have for both Junya loyalists and North Face heads.

Last year saw the rollout of the first items from North Face’s collaboration with Junya Watanabe. Perhaps the best of the whole lot however just recently dropped. The made in Japan collab in delivering a highly functional jacket that features all kinds of technical detailing throughout – inspired by TNF’s original Terra 65 backpack. A patchworked masterpiece of water-resistant  materials, this style is highly adaptable – featuring toggles and elastics at the hood and helming. Tasteful. Branding punctuates the look throughout, and alongside multiple pockets and backpack detailing. This is a show stealer and a must have for any serious technical outerwear fan. The only downside might be the hefty retail price, coming in at over $2000. It’s available now at END.

This piece is one of the best I’ve seen from Stone Island this scene. An awesome olive color way that’s the result of a garment dyeing process . The parka comes in a performance fabric made up of an outer opaque light nylon layer laminated to a very fine breathable, water and wind resistant inner membrane. The seams have been thermo-taped for optimal water resistance.  Along with the removable storm hood and zip fastening system this is a strong choice for even heavy-duty rainfall.  It’s available over at HAVEN.

The leather jackets from Saint Laurent are some of my absolutely favorites. This lambskin version from SS17 has an easy to wear cropped cut and the usual essential details on a riders jacket. The zippers are off-set with zip and flap pockets at the front.

If you’re into double riders and want one that feels more luxe in terms of hardware, details with a more modern cut it’d be difficult to go wrong with this one. The only downside is the high price point.

Available at SSENSE.
