kind of obscure but
did anyone else know that the undercover jun takahashi X patti smith (neo boy) was not just a onetime collab for SS09 but rather an ongoing relationship between the two that began before 2004?
The actual neoboy poem of which SS09 mens collection was created upon was actually recorded for and recited during the 2004 "but beautiful" show. the original version of the poem is ancient though from like the late 70s
supposedly patti came across some of jun's work through some japanese photographer who had worked with both jun and patti and came to appreciate his aesthetic
kinda cool. one of the true OG's of punk was actually influencing the development of undercover across oceans and continents.
she actually was probably into UC before like at least 90% of sufuers and maybe even before me lol
Author Haruki Murakami opened a temporary website, titled Murakami-san no Tokoro (Mr. Murakami’s Place) at which he took questions from fans for two weeks and now is providing answers.
In response to a fan question by Mr. Motchii, "Do you wear 'Undercover'?" Mr. Murakami responds,
"Jun Takahashi is also a very enthusiastic marathon runner which may be part of it, but I often run in the products he designs, running wear by 'GYAKUSOU' (manufactured by Nike). I don't mean to advertise, but having the runner design the clothes makes them extremely easy to wear. There's also many pockets which makes it easy to hold things like an iPod or keys."
We are very honored to hear Mr. Murakami say such kind words. We would also like to thank Mr. Motchii for his question!
