Just got this avakareta life coat, fw10, am now looking for things to pair it with that aren't as...clean. The coat naturally has a sorta worn look. Naturally I put on clothes for the sake of a picture even though it's like 100 degrees out!

Also this new emoji is guap af :heck:

Apparently it's a one off version of the jacket made especially for Jun himself. Never heard of it before. Looks pretty amazing.

Samples were shown on the 19th and 20th last month. Last year, new stuff dropped on the 24th of January, but the sale started the 14th. This year it started the 1st, so if the past is any indication, the 11th?

might as well post this for posterity. Here's some potato pics of a weird UC thing I found at a random secondhand store over the summer. It's like a cropped thick wool cardigan with mad long sleeves. What's bizarre is it has these two baby-sized graphic tees sewn onto the bottom as some sort of drapey extensions. Pretty sure it's from the women's collection, not the men's but idk. Wish I took better pictures but it was real unwieldy.

So I decided to sell my olive hand bomber instead of the black/navy one, and upon listing it on Grailed last week, the admins removed my post twice without explanation. Today I finally got an e-mail saying they received numerous accusations about it being fake. Nevermind that they didn't show me the evidence nor tell me about it first, but on the off chance they're right, could anyone verify the tags below? Much appreciated.

Edit: Turns out it's fake.

Ugh, black/navy one is fake also, bought both from HK sellers that looked legit. The black/navy had $1k offers and I needed money. Pulled the listing anyways not because I'm a good person but cuz there's a chance the potential buyer will find out and do a chargeback. I opened cases on PayPal even though I most likely will have to resort to chargeback also given how long ago they were purchased. Shitty day, will have to sell some other stuff that I wanted to keep.

Helmut Lang, 1999 (at least the prominent models)
Image
Undercover, 2010

did jun catch any criticism for this back when avakareta life released? is it acceptable in the context of the rest of UC's original work (or going deeper, is it acceptable in general)? or is there an earlier, original model that both jackets are based off that i'm not aware of? maybe it's like UC modeling their moto jackets after lewis leathers but the double rider design has less individual "ownership" in modern times

both rad jackets but i'm curious is all. raises some interesting questions about apparel design IP

Spoiler:
i can list similarities if necessary but it feels sort of blatant

thats definitely different enough to be considered okay both from a legal and an ethical perspective

i don't think anyone thinks jun ran out of ideas and went looking at old hl shows for things to rip off (helmut probably couldn't care less as well)

whereas that's exactly what gucci did with that acr jacket a few seasons ago, and accordingly people were very mad about it

in other uc news;

https://www.grailed.com/listings/100454 ... iang-Shirt

https://www.grailed.com/listings/572129 ... iang-Shirt

https://www.grailed.com/listings/103815 ... ang--Shirt

couple years ago these were on here for like $150, maybe 200.

are ZAMIANGSHIRTS the next commodity bubble

JUN TAKAHASHI'S GRACES


Image

I've been looking forward to visiting the Undercover store here in Tokyo for a long time and checking out the Graces exhibition...I got to go a few days ago and I'm so glad I did. I wish I had been able to take pictures in the store.

Anyone who follows Undercover or Jun Takahashi is familiar with the Graces by now. Doll-making is an avid hobby of Takahashi's now for many years. They appeared prominently in the Spring 09 collection...

This season Takahashi notes that he was inspired by white, fluffy creatures with luminous eyes called "Graces." These creatures, invented by Takahashi, keep their distance from humans. A secret organization called Gila, he says, has succeeded in breeding and protecting the Graces. Gila also has played a crucial role in fostering a relationship between both the Graces and the human species. To illustrate this notion, Takahashi made dolls (which looked somewhat like a cross between an alien and a monkey with luminous eyes and a light on the tip of their tails), which rested on the shoulders of a few of the mannequins that were set-up in the center of the gallery space.

Spoiler:
I have been entranced by these creatures ever since I first saw them...you can't exactly tell if the Graces are peaceful or hostile beings. In some of the photos taken by Katsuhide Morimoto for the Spring 09 collection, humans and Graces exist in peace (a picture of a young girl gazing peacefully at a miniature Grace in what looks like an open-air terrarium) and in some contexts the Graces are monstrous (an image of creatures atop a building shooting beams of light from their lamp-heads at a crowd of terrorized humans below)

These are not my own pictures, so thank you to a few kind people from Flickr who have shared images of the Graces in the various exhibits and windows they have appeared in.

Unfortunately I couldn't show all of the photos that I saw in the Undercover store, but if you're in town soon it is definitely worth a look.

Here are some pictures of the Graces in some other exhibitions.

Image
Image

Sometimes Jun Takahashi does live presentations of the doll-making.

Image

Here are some of the beautiful images of the Graces from the issue of A Magazine that Jun Takahashi curated.

I've heard there was an animated film made with the Graces. I'd love to see it some day!
