Off-White™ announces a collaboration with internationally renowned brand Undercover. The collection, a combination of the creative minds Virgil Abloh and Jun Takahashi, launches September 14th, and includes a selection of t-shirts, hoodies, zip-ups, athletic shorts, denim, and a waist bag.
Traditional Off-White™ markings are re-imagined by Jun Takahashi with graphics of what the designers call “dark matter”- a snake-filled GILAPPLE (an iconic symbol of Undercover), hunched skeletons, and clawed hands – in key colors of black, white, red and yellow. In typical Undercover fashion, the collection name merges the brands into one, displaying UNDEROFFWHITECOVERS on standout pieces including t-shirts, hoodies, and athletic shorts. The name also leads the collaboration campaign imagery.
The collection campaign draws inspiration from iconic Japanese comedy from the 1980s and ’90s, featuring two actors, Naoto Takenaka and Eri Fuse in a number of humorous role-plays.
