HUMAN MADE and UNDERCOVER are teaming up on a “LAST ORGY 2” collection.

For a bit of context, LAST ORGY was an editorial column by Hiroshi Fujiwara and Kan Takagi featured in Takarajima Magazine starting in 1987. The name actually comes from a song by Tinnie Punx (sometimes spelled Tiny Panx), a hip-hop group formed by the duo in the late ’80s. In the column, the Fujiwara and Takagi would discuss their favorite clothing, music, film, etc., basically what is now known as street culture. It became so influential that a spin-off TV series with the same name began airing on FM-TV in Japan.

Fans of the original LAST ORGY included a young Tomoaki Nagao, who received the nickname Fujiwara Hiroshi Nigo (Hiroshi Fujiwara Number Two), and Jun “Jonio” Takahashi. NIGO and Jun would go on to write their own column called LAST ORGY 2 in the early ’90s, continuing where Fujiwara and Takagi left off. In addition to the column, NIGO and Takahashi would release LAST ORGY 2 branded clothing at their NOWHERE shop, which opened in Harajuku in 1993. LAST ORGY 2 clothes was sold alongside NIGO’s BAPE and Takahashi’s UNDERCOVER brands.

The LAST ORGY 2 series was revived in 2021 in GQ Japan, this time with a slightly new name, LAST ORGY 2.1. This revival triggered the return of LAST ORGY 2 clothing, this time created in collaboration between NIGO’s HUMAN MADE and Jun Takahashi’s UNDERCOVER. The collection features five styles in total, including a coaches jacket, a hoodie, a crewneck sweatshirt, and two tees. A couple of the pieces are a triple collaboration with VERDY and his Girls Don’t Cry label. VERDY also designed the title lettering for the LAST ORGY 2.1 series in GQ Japan. HUMAN MADE and UNDERCOVER will each offer pieces from the collection in different colorways.

The HUMAN MADE x UNDERCOVER “LAST ORGY 2” collection launches on Saturday, February 5th on the HUMAN MADE and UNDERCOVER website.
