Undercover & The Soloist to be guest designers at Pitti Uomo 2018

The Japanese designers Jun Takahashi of Undercover & Takahiro Miyashita The Soloist will be the guest designers at next years bi-annual trade shoe Pitti Uomo in January.  Both designers are known for their twisted take on youthful romanticism.  Takahashi & Miyashita have been close friends since the 1990’s and both met when they first showed their designs in Tokyo.  “I think we both have similar ways of thinking,” says Miyashita. “Jun likes the feminine and the beautiful, but with a dark side that is sometimes scary. I also have a romantic and beautiful side that is tinged with darkness. I think we like the opposites — scary/funny, pretty/dark.”  The designers will show their collections in back to back runway shows on Jan 11th.
