The positive vibes of a little nip/tuck action were running wild at the AW15 Undercover plastic surgery-inspired runway. Designer Jun Takahashi played with the idea of youthful beauty at his Fall/ Winter 2015 show. Models were adorned with floral lab coats and and Hannibal Lector-inspired plastic masks. Undercover noted the appeal of plastic surgery and how media propels our culture's obsession with invasive surgery.
Dazed and Confused reported, "Cartoonish daggers and flowers graced lab coats as symbols of going under the knife in order to obtain blooming youth." Takahashi spoke to the plastic surgery culture both literally and figuratively in this collection. The plastic masks distorted the model's faces, giving them the appeal of a frozen face to mimic face lifts.
