Undercover SS1999 Zipper 'Groupie' Grey Sweater Crew Neck
"We Make Noise, Not Clothes” is the motto that designer Jun Takahashi imbues to his punk-culture inspired label Undercover. Takahashi was enrolled into Tokyo’s Bunka Fashion College with a blind sense of direction until he encountered his first Comme Des Garcons show and became a student to Rei Kawakubo’s raw sense of creativity. Undercover is favoured for their punk culture meets fashion as well as their conceptual runway pieces. Takahashi was quoted as saying: “I wanted to make punk elegant. It was natural for me to interpret music or movies that I grew up with — that shaped me. I was always interested in rebellion. So, I decided to make clothes that are not merely beautiful; I wanted to interpret culture into fashion.” The first Undercover runway show in Paris was in 2003, and the brand has released collaborations with Uniqlo, Supreme and Nike, as well as additional clothing lines such as Sue and John Undercover."
This rare and unique sweater is from Undercover's 1999 collection "Relief". Light wear and pilling to material. Sleeves are removable and collar can be unzipped.
