Jun Takahashi created this story and production instead of a runway show for the SS09 season. The book, published in 2008, revolves around creatures called GRACE, stuffed dolls with vintage bicycle light faces made by Jun Takahashi and his Undercover team. GILA, a mysterious organization that protects and breeds GRACEs, is also explored in the book. It was not the first time Takahashi decided to present his collection in an alternative way. While he does not reject runway shows as such, he feels that sometimes they are not the best way to communicate his views and ideas to his audience. Truly a grail item for every collector.
