    Really good. I hope the clothes feel and last as good as they look on camera, and I have a feeling that the details aren't done complete justice through photo or video either. However, some people have said that the collection is lacking in experimentation and is just too safe, which I can't really disagree with, especially regarding silhouettes. Still, very strong collection and my favourite thus far, unless Rick has something special in store.

    really like this, feels like a departure from all the brands doing over the top styling. Wish to see the garments in showrooms.

    i think shapes are safe but maybe he experimented on the effects like blind emboss on garments. gotta see more in the showroom

    I think it's a fantastic collection from Jun, he always get's the film references so right. It's subtle and well thought through as opposed to for example Raf's collection for CK with the whole slapping stills from Jaws on a tee, the randomly placed logo and the tittle so the kids get the reference. But of course we forgive him cause it's Raf ;)

    I think it's pure class. Not boring. And if you can see the quality of the clothing even through the pictures then it is definitely telling a lot about the craftsmanship. But of course I might be wrong so over to you @Faust as you've seen the show live.

    I never took the time to dive in Jun's work. But seeing this, i really like what i see.

    I’ve never been a huge Undercover fan, but I do like this show’s more subtle approach as opposed to e.g. the Kubrick prints from FW18. Still, I agree with upsilonking – Undercover (and recent Raf as well) is more or less luxurious merchandise with changing subjects. Always dependent on someone else’s creation.

    I obviously meant the themes of his collections. And just to be sure: the line above was a joke.

    undercover basically makes band merch every other season and sometimes planet hollywood stuff and ive never been impressed w/ any of their materials and cuts, Raf got known from that , i mean what would he be w/out Peter Saville? who stole his most famous work from an encyclopedia the unknown pleasure's album cover.

    Best of season along with Rick, period. The quality is amazing - these are not prints but jacquard. Blew my mind. And the prices were surprisingly accessible. Start saving.
