Has 2021 seen a cooler collaboration than Undercover x Evangelion?
Earlier this year, the Japanese streetwear brand unveiled several pieces inspired by Neon Genesis Evangelion (or simply “Evangelion”), the cult-favourite ’90s anime series that married sci-fi thrills with psychological themes.
The collaboration is part of Undercover’s Fall/Winter 2021 collection, “Creep Very”, which designer Jun Takahashi described as being about “ a person who is frail and weak but has a truly pure heart.” Evangelion fans will no doubt have the series’ protagonist, Shinji, in mind.
Aptly, the techno-futuristic outfits in the Undercover x Evangelion collection draw directly from the series created by Hideaki Anno: there are parkas inspired by the giant Evangelion Units and the Plugsuits worn by the characters Shinji, Asuka and Rei; panelled puffer jackets that resemble the show’s robotic creations; and several more outerwear pieces like coats, bombers and jackets featuring prints of Evangelion characters and their robotic counterparts.
