The first comprehensive book on the work of Jun Takahashi of UNDERCOVER, an icon of Harajuku streetwear and the presumptive heir to the heavy mantle of Japanese deconstruction. Takahashi Jun’s fashion is not born out of an excessively intellectualized agenda. While not quite populist, his generative influences are instead romantic—even gothic. A fixture of the Paris collections for more than ten years—plus seventeen uninterrupted seasons in Tokyo prior to that—Takahashi’s life’s work confirms a maturation from self-conscious artifice and rebel pastiche to a steely, withering elegance all his own. Hailing from Gunma Prefecture like his friend Nigo of A Bathing Ape, Takahashi’s long association with the undisputed king of Ura-Harajuku in the early 1990s is now the stuff of local fashion lore. But Takahashi would blaze an entirely different path to legend and notoriety. The violent rending and hasty reassembly that characterized his early work, its calculated imperfections and sutured seams, have given way to collections that he himself now calls "sexy and feminine." UNDERCOVER is insightfully curated with fashion-filled chapters devoted to Takahashi’s sketches, graphic work, collaborations, and most innovative designs to date. Lavishly illustrated with more than 200 photographs and in-depth essays by fashion writers, curators, and colleagues, this book gives readers first time access into Takahashi’s UNDERCOVER, one of the most desired and multidimensional clothing lines in contemporary fashion.

Our Side Of The Tracks

Graffiti & Street Art Books

Our side of the tracks presents 70 images from 35 different countries showing us the romantic and artistic atmosphere that surrounds train-writing discipline, all in a purely photographic perspective. The book includes portraits of many of the world’s most famous artists involved in the graffiti scene as well as many of the most visited and the most obscure places, out of reach from the general public, where graffiti writers go to paint on trains. It will not only be the bible in ones library but it will stand as a timeless piece of work in the scene now seemingly over-saturated in books about the subject. A subculture on the rise and the first-hand, behind-the-scenes look at the people, considered criminals, who practice the art known as train painting, the last antidote to blatant advertising. The photos include everywhere from New York’s grimy subway tunnels, Copenhagen’s ever-clean Metro layups, Milano’s gypsy-controlled train yards, Washington DC’s high-security spots, Paris’ legendary underground, to even Switzerland’s perfect trains. Catania’s subway before it was a tourist attraction in the graffiti scene, looking cleaner than ever. Bucharest wholecars covering the windows in 2006. Switzerland’s capital of Bern in the buff. Action in Toronto, Canada. Climbing through windows in Milan. Between the lines in Miami. Belgium, Greece, Holland, Hungary, Germany, England, Spain, France and Austria.
