  • For sale is a stunning Spring Summer 1999 Undercover Relief “Groupie” Hoodie. The Spring Summer 1999 collection was the true beginning of Undercover. Jun Takahashi’s work was slowly formulating a cult like following, Undercover just beginning to identify with the label known today. The 99’ show is one of the earliest examples of Takahashi’s experimental and boundary pushing ideologies. The phrase “Groupie” is recurring throughout the entire collection, showcased on many different textiles, silhouettes, and innovative design techniques. Among “Groupie”, “I’m an Undercover Groupie” is also an expression which Jun Takahashi implemented on to few designs within the collection. The word Groupie defined as a person (usually a young woman) who follows musical influencers, often with lustful intents and obsessive behaviour, this is a direct irony to the very followers of Undercover itself.


    The most infamous garment from the collection swiftly became the hoodie shown. Featuring the word “Groupie” in metallic font, the lettering spreads across the chest of a black hoodie. Although subtle, this garment exemplifies the simple yet intriguing designs the 1999 collection withholds. The wording is intentionally backwards from an outside perspective, becoming a nametag for the one wearing such a garment. In short, Takahashi is conveying that once you’ve worn Undercover, it’s impossible to resist the urge to love the label, to become an Undercover groupie. This deeper understanding of design and metaphor is what truly makes Jun Takahashi the celebrated designer he is today. The hoodie is tagged as a size medium and fits true to size, with minimal signs of wear throughout. The opportunity to purchase a hoodie from a twenty-two year old collection is rare, let alone one of the most sought after pieces from such. However, when you factor in the near perfect condition and great pricing, it becomes near impossible to pass up this scare opportunity. Take this chance to do just that, and purchase a stunning Spring Summer 1999 Undercover Relief “Groupie” Hoodie today.
