(FOR SALE) A pair of Autumn Winter 2010 Undercover “68” Re-Edition “Blue Yarn” Denim.

Jun Takahashi’s return to runway fashion after taking a three season break was a highly anticipated return. With the ideology of ‘Less But Better’ being embroidered into many of the garments, Takahashi’s minimalist approach to creation was a breath of fresh air. Alongside this ideology, many of Undercover’s greatest pieces were re-editioned, pairing beautifully with Undercover’s seasonal pieces.

The ensemble of multi-coloured yarn is carefully weaved into a thrashed dirt wash base, creating a distinguishing sense of individuality. The jeans are carefully embroidered with both traditional Japanese Sashiko stitching and Undercover’s signature Patti Smith lightning bolt emblem. Jun Takahashi implements the motif atop the right knee of the denim, paying homage to Smith’s identical tattoo. The lightning bolt symbolizes a humble mindset, disregarding the urge to boast or become greedy. In contrast to the original retail price of $68.00 (hence the name), the Undercover 68 denim has ironically excelled to unprecedented heights in the second hand market. Coming in a size 28 waist, these jeans are in pristine overall condition with no flaws whatsoever. Here is the opportunity to purchase a true grail from Undercover’s Autumn Winter 2010 collection.

Waist: 28 inches
Inseam: 32 inches
Rise: 10.5 inches
Thigh: 11 inches
Knee: 7.25 inches
