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 Psycho Color and Open Strings collections combining elements of streetwear, dandyism and technical wear. Since the Spring/Summer 2012 collection, Jun has continued experimenting with a varied color palette and this collection contains a bright array of oranges, greens, olives, and purples. 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.
