Undercover Undercover present a refined, rock and roll look in their Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Two albums by Television, Marquee Moon and Adventure, are honored several times as outwear pieces are decorated with the covers. Whether the models are wearing a technical coat with tight ripped black denim or a maroon trench paired with orange gingham, they all sport a stern, grungy face. See the rest of the collection here.
For this collection, Carole Lim and Humberto Leon are greatly inspired by their two home nations: the United States and France. Aside from references to their beloved countries – a State of Liberty and Les Mesirables tanktop – the designers opted for an androgynous aesthetic apparent in see-through crew necks and large trench coats. To further accent its gender-neutral appeal, Kenzo utilized “macaroon-colored” aka pastel hues throughout the collection. Browse the looks here.
