Revealed in late 2020, UNDERCOVER has now introduced a complete look at its collaborative 30th anniversary leather sleeve down jackets. Created in partnership with peers sacai, Kolor, fragment design, TAKAHIROMIYASHITA TheSoloist. and N.HOOLYWOOD, the jackets all take a different tact to exploring the same style of garment.
As teased in the early imagery, the collaboration unites all five labels for six distinct pieces of outerwear, including a no-frills reproduction of UNDERCOVER’s original creation. Here, sacai designer Chitose Abe infuses the garment with its trademark mash-up sensibilities by infusing the body with a knit riders jacket — complete with adjustable belt — and “KEEP MAKING NOISE!!!” text on the quilted lining. Meanwhile Abe’s husband Junichi takes the remix style a step further with Kolor‘s sporty hybrid jacket, complete with stylized “30th Anniversary” text on the rear.
TAKAHIROMIYASHITA TheSoloist. opts for a more adventurous option, affixing goggles and gloves to the already-insulated layering piece, while N.HOOLYWOOD continues the transformative motif with a collapsible hood and parka-like body. Finally, fragment design keeps things simple by stamping its lightning bolt emblem onto the rear of the neck.
Read up on the process for purchasing one of the highly limited leather-sleeved down jackets on UNDERCOVER’s web store, all weighing in at ￥140,000 JPY (approximately $1,356 USD) to ￥240,000 JPY (approximately $2,325 USD).
UNDERCOVER’s other celebratory year-end drops included special logo goods and the revival of a classic HYSTERIC GLAMOUR collaboration.
