Jun Takahashi gleaned inspiration from rock band Television — its “Seventies, New York” vibe, rather than its members’ look — for part of Undercover’s spring 2015 men’s collection.

The designer, pointing out colorful gingham scarves, said the line is made of what he personally wants to wear, calling it a “mix of now and then.” This includes retro rock T-shirts, checkered jackets plus hooded parkas with color blocking and the word “Adventure” (the name of Television’s second album), scrawled across. It’s modern-day mod through the Japanese designer’s lens, and marks Undercover’s return to the Paris men’s calendar after a multi-year hiatus.
