The models at Jun Takahashi’s Undercover show wore bizarre plastic masks over their faces that blurred, squeezed, tightened, and lifted their natural features. They were a nod to the effects of a plastic surgery-obsessed society (Takahashi’s chosen theme was “hurt”), but also were eerily reminiscent of another horrific mask—that of Halloween‘s faceless killer, Michael Myers. Though much of the collection was elegant, or even straight-up pretty—a fuzzy, white cropped cardigan; a swingy, red-velvet skirt; roomy, cobalt trousers; a sleek, black-and-white evening suiting look—there was an undercurrent of violence and foreboding. Several sterile, lab-coat-like jackets were emblazoned with illustrations of knives, and shard-like paillettes in red and silver spilled over blazers, coats, and matching pants.
