Dear Shaded Viewers,
Celebrating a welcome return to the catwalk, Undercover delivered a subtle and beautiful collection, focusing on smart fabric combinations and a poetic silhouette. I love the way Jun Takahashi can mix several influences and textures in one outfit while making it believable. His outerwear pieces were particularly strong this time.
I enjoyed Takahashi's take on gold, one of the season's strongest trends. It was playful and slightly irreverent.
