If you ever set foot into one of UNDERCOVER, the avant-garde Japanese fashion label, flagships. You will immediately notice the few other worldly mannequins. Less for utilitarian or display purposes, each is an unique piece of sculptures, created and designed mainly by Jun Takahashi (é«˜æ©‹ç›¾), the renowned creator of the UNDERCOVER label.
As part of the UNDERCOVER sponsored The Sound & The Fury Tour, currently ongoing across Asia. Performers DEXPISTOLS, DJ Ogawa, will all take part. However, the most unique aspect of this tour would be a performance by Jun Takahashi himself, who will exhibit his eccentric process (he called them “Live Doll Operation”) in creating his signature mannequins. The tour’s Hong Kong leg took place this past Friday at the exclusive Adrenaline – Hong Kong Jockey Club, in conjunction with the commemoration of UNDERCOVER Hong Kong flagship’s 3rd anniversary. Hosted by HK’s SILLY THING, in attendance were the fortunate few and celebrities, such as HK musician Juno Mak (éº¥æµšé¾) and Nigo of BAPE. But none had more attention than the designer Jun Takahashi himself, who was creating a new signature mannequin in another Live Doll Operation as event goers looked on. The tour will arrive at its last destination, Taiwan, next.
