Some things can’t be described. I’ve seen Jun Takahashi’s Graces before and always felt happy. They remind me of those short movies with those animated puppets – papa bear, mama bear and little bear. In the dark woods. Childhood entertainment. Like in “There There” one of my favourite music videos by Radiohead.
This guy is a genius. No surprise, Rei Kawakubo was one of the first to have an eye on him. And – as many Japanese artists and designers – Jun is the impersonation of cool. It’s funny. And I’m not sure whether he’s being ironic or serious. But I am sure, that soon everybody in design, art and fashion wants to have a piece of Jun. See you in the line.
