Getting things right the first time around is no small feat in itself. But given the magnitude of this particular collaboration and as a follow-up to the Jil Sander’s wildly successful +J Collection, designer Jun Takahashi couldn’t leave anything to chance. Shot in a massive sound stage instead of the typical photo studio, Takahashi oversaw all aspects of the Spring/Summer 2012 Lookbook for UU Collection, the new collaboration between his UNDERCOVER brand and apparel giant UNIQLO. With a penchant for details, Takahashi not only was the lead stylist on set, but a temporary wrangler for the child models also. To really facilitate the sense of storytelling and “Family”, the lookbook’s central theme. All props were made from scratch, including some of the giant backdrops. As for the clothing themselves, all will be reveal on March 16th when the UU Collection first drop becomes available at select UNIQLO retail locations.
