AW03 “Paperdoll” Osama/Bush Skull Down Puffer
Undercover AW03 “Paper Doll” Osama/Bush Down Puffer Jacket. Along with the iconic hybrid reconstructed jacket and pants from the coveted “Paper Doll” collection are two patterns depicting the faces of American President George W Bush and Al-Queda Founder Osama Bin Laden in forms of military camouflage which were applied on various garments. Jun Takahashi, similar to his strongest source of inspiration, Vivienne Westwood, never came short in expressing his anti war sentiments in the peak iconoclast eras of Undercover — These were, for the most part, exclusive to the mens collections. Possibly due to Takahashi’s focus on women’s fashion as a creative outlet while the men’s designs were focused on what he sees himself wearing. Fairly recently however, Undercover is said to have take a strong shift in its principles by focusing on the conceptual aspect of menswear.
Down jacket has osama/bush pasted on the eyes of skulls and patterned in different contrasts of moss green. Nylon outer, with down feather insulation. Multiple hidden compartments in the back and two small hidden zip pockets in the left arm. What looks like a removable blank velcro nameplate on front and back. YKK zippers.
8/10 condition. Sz M, fits true.
