Jun Takahashi Takes Japan's Version of Lady Macbeth as a Muse for Undercover's FW20 Collection
Featuring extravagant Renaissance-inspired silhouettes.
This season, Jun Takahashi showcased a creative and unique take to his latest designs for Undercover‘s Fall/Winter 2020 collection. Presented at Paris Fashion Week in a Marais showroom, Takahashi’s women’s line was inspired by Akira Kurosawa’s 1957 film, Throne of Blood – a retelling of William Shakespeare’s Macbeth set in Japan.
Taking the Japenese version of Lady Macbeth as a muse, dresses in this range arrive in Renaissance-indebted silhouettes, accented with the label’s signature motifs like razor blade prints. Intricate fringes and bows complement a variety of elegant satin dresses, plaid knitwear and performancewear. Sashes, ropes and ties dominated this collection along with frilled skirts, sophisticated blazers and haori-style jackets.
