Undercover SS13 Men’s Collection

Undercover Spring/Summer 2013 Men’s Collection

We present the latest Undercover Spring/Summer 2013 collection; a follow up to Pyscho Color which is in stores now. Jun Takahashi continues themes from the┬áPsycho┬áColor and Open Strings collections combining elements of streetwear, dandyism and technical wear. Since the Spring/Summer 2012 collection, Jun has continued experimenting with a┬ávaried┬ácolor palette and this collection contains a bright array of oranges, greens, olives, and┬ápurples. The styling in this collection must be commended for mixing these colors effortlessly down to little details such as the buttons and socks. Some of the pieces seem like all too familiar riffs on men’s basics but there are definite standouts: the olive cape, the burgundy suit the all white looks, and the electric blue knit blazer. Look for more coverage on Third Looks as more images leak and the product begins to arrive in shops early next year.

More images after the jump.

Coveted: Undercover Wool Rider Jacket from FW 2004/2005 ‘Arts & Crafts’

I do not think that these jeans are from the original SCAB collection but rather they reference some of details and patterns from that collection. These jeans are surprisingly lightweight and are fabricated … Read more
