At this year’s Paris fashion week, Valentino and undercover cooperated with Undercover, which is led by Jun Takahashi. Can you imagine how wonderful chemical reactions can they have when a luxury high-end and a designer Street brand are joined hands?
UFO, outer space … The joint series named “Past and Future” that uses the future world as the background, and uses a lot of the space and UFO elements that Undercover is good at. It expresses the Valentino x UNDERCOVER series in the background of outer space.
It also inspired the classic song “Space Oddity” by writer Edgar Allen Poe and the late musician David Bowie, and injected image prints into it, bringing a strong visual impact.
VALENTINO creative director Pierpaolo Piccioli and UNDERCOVER lead Jun Takahashi, in this joint design, can be said to have staged a fantastic art festival feast. They perfectly combine high-end elements with street style. In the single product, we can also see the master of music Beethoven, American thriller writer Allan Poe, the UFO pattern … remarkably high-end and impressive!
Pierpaolo Piccioli constantly pursues the conflict sparks between street fashion and high-end customization in recent seasons. In this joint shoe with UNDERCOVER, we can also see his exceptional creative talent.
Take the Go Skull mountaineering sneakers as an example, its most noticeable highlight is the heel design. With VALENTINO’s dazzling red big V combined with skull, strong colors and high-tech materials, it creates different visual effects as the light moves. On the outside of both feet, the red logo of VALENTINO and UNDERCOVER is printed symmetrically.
In addition, this series also brings a variety of neutral color designs including coats, Pullover tops, and casual trousers, as well as shoes and limited Tote bags created by combining the classic elements of both brands.
