Undercover autumn / winter 1998-99
Michael Koppelman of London-based streetwear organisation Gimme 5 has collaborated with Takahashi on one-offs and special projects for his hideout store since it opened in 1998. ‘At the time of the “scab” collection, some of Jun’s assistants came over to london,’ he anecdotalises, ‘and they told me that a lady selling fruit on oxford street came and gave them some bananas, because she thought they were homeless. They were happy, not only because of the random act of kindness, but also because it meant the clothes seemed real. That’s the difference between what Jun does and what others do; it’s not based on “yachting” or something, it’s based on street culture.
