Unknown Pleasures Backpack by Undercover Co.

Japan: Undercover Co., [2009]. Nylon backpack. 18 ½ x 19 ½ x 3 in. (empty). Very good. Item #6955

Fabricating out of NASA-style technical fabrics, Jun Takahashi again takes the Unknown Pleasures album artwork into a backpack featuring oversized compartments and intricate zip and buckle closures.

This limited-edition item was part of Undercover Co.’s Autumn/Winter 2009 collection titled “Earmuff Maniac”, which rekindled the fashion world’s fixation on the seminal 1979 post-punk release’s album artwork.

Jun Takahashi launched Undercover Co., a high-end streetwear label, in 1993. This scarce piece is perhaps the most iconic of the collection, marrying Takahashi’s innovative design perspective with the ubiquitous Joy Division design.
