Japanese menswear magazine SPADE is a relatively new magazine, published by the same company that makes EYESCREAM magazine. To commemorate their second issue, SPADE teamed up with TAKAHIROMIYASHITATheSoloIst and UNDERCOVER for a collaboration. As the main feature of the issue is on Takahiro Miyashita and his brand, a special capsule collection was produced. UNDERCOVER was also invited due to Jun Takahashi being a good friend of Miyashita, as evidenced in the recent openstrings video from UNDERCOVER where Miyashita was invited to play in the video.
The collection uses 14 white garments as blank canvases, printing monochromatic photos on top of it. These rare photos of Kurt Cobain and Courtney Love were taken by acclaimed Japanese photographer Kenji Kubo. Apart from the capsule collection, there is one t-shirt made for SPADE and one t-shirt made in conjunction with UNDERCOVER. The total of 16 pieces are currently available as pre-order at EYESCREAM online shop and the delivery is scheduled for late April to May.
