UNDERCOVER x Evangelion
by Max Slade·
UNDERCOVER "CREEP VERY" 2021 AUTUMN - WINTER CAPSULE
A founding father of Japanese fashion, Undercover creates pieces that are deeply rooted within punk sub-culture and American-inspired street fashion, which is transparent with every collection the brand drops. When considering the endless sources of founder Jun Takahashi's unique inspirations, it’s no wonder why the fashion giant has gained recognition on a global scale.
The idea of being deeply rooted in Japanese culture remains ever-present in the label’s latest collection, a meticulously crafted set of pieces derived from anime series Neon Genesis Evangelion. Set 15 years following a global apocalypse, protagonist Shinji becomes responsible for operating the mecha for which the show is named, a combat machine that inspires the majority of the collection’s outerwear.
Other references include graphics based off the main character, along with the uniforms worn by Evangelion’s pilots.
