UNDERCOVER, a Japanese streetwear label that specializes in statement branding and unique graphic images, recently launched its 'LOST YOUTH' collection, which explores playful cartoon characters who've been supplied with more mature elements.

The collection includes a range of apparel, as well as porcelain homeware and accessories. The homeware features different combinations of fruits that are often humanized with eyeballs, while the accessories feature cartoon characters like large teddy bears, who have their eyes covered with black bars that makes them anonymous. Other accessories simply feature the Japanese streetwear label's branding minimally, along with large colored ribbons.

The apparel features the strange cartoons more prominently, with one long-sleeve shirt showing a rabbit who has its smiling face placed on its stomach, with UNDERCOVER's branding taking over its head.
