Undercover, Supreme's Latest Collaborator, is Japanese Punk Fashion at Its Best

Before the next Supreme x Undercover collection drops, here's a refresher on the who, what, when, and why behind the cult Japanese label.

For most of its 25-plus-year existence, Jun Takahashi’s Undercover has remained, by and large, just that: undercover. Among the fashion community, the brand has risen to become a favorite, often mixing its roots in Japanese streetwear, the rebelliousness of punk rock music, and a theatrical flair on the runway.

Last year, Supreme and Undercover teamed up for the first time, producing a collection of leather jackets, trench coats, sweatshirts, pants, and graphic tees that combined the anti-establishment nature of both companies. The phrase “Anarchy is the Key” and images of the signature Undercover teddy bear—its eyes obscured by a Supreme box logo, and a screw driven through its head—were brandished throughout, and sold out in typical Supreme fashion.

Now, the two brands are back at it again. With their next collaborative collection out tomorrow, it’s about time for a refresher course on all things Undercover, alongside highlights from tomorrow's Supreme x Undercover drop.
