“Undercover’s founder Jun Takahashi is well acquainted with Parisian runways. But he takes a different approach with Gyakusou, shifting his focus to running trails.
Since 2010, Takahashi has morphed his passion for sport and design into a revolutionary rethinking of the modern running uniform. The designer – a member of Tokyo’s GIRA running club – draws from his own athletic insights, particularly when experimenting with new forms like the Dri-FIT Utility Long Tights and Engineered Sleeve Composite Jacket.
Gyakusou – taken from the Japanese word “gyaku,” meaning to reverse, references GIRA members’ method of running counter-clockwise through parks in Tokyo. Progressive in theory and practice, this season’s collection considers what a running uniform might resemble decades from now – with the technical innovations to match.”
I’m in love. Find the story and collection HERE.

We can’t deny it any longer: fall has begun and it’s in full swing. Love being able to crawl up in the largest knits I have with a blanket and cup of hot choco, but can’t stand the rain and wind when I have to get outside. Talking about going outside: yesterday I had my weekly running training (incl my new and totally awesome reflective running tights, go get them here) and after a few kilometers it started raining, hailstones followed (I kid you not: hailstones as large as sugar cubes on your head aren’t the best feeling in the world) and heavy thunder stormes forced us to end our training. A pity, but at least we logged another 5k in these miserable circumstances.
About the rest of my week: I went to the hairdresser’s, attended the coolest brand launch in ages (on the 18th floor, well done, every.day.counts!), rocked my pretty new Hope boots, rekindled my love for gardening with this Nike Air Max 1 tree at work (kidding, no green fingers here) and wore this denim jacket while I still could.
How has your week been so far? Don’t forget to follow @sffte on Instagram ;)
