Jun Takahashi founded his label ‘Undercover’ in 1993 and began showing his collections in Paris in 2002.
In its infancy Undercover was influenced by Punk, and ripped Ts and patched leather jackets were the mainstays of the collection. Today Takahasi’s aesthetic remains subversive, but is infused with a technicality and clarity lacking in early collections. Takahashi seeks to challenge preconceived notions both in his designs, and their presentation. With his mentor, Rei Kawakubo, he became one of the leading designers in the avant-garde scene.
Undercover – expect premium materials, unconventional fabrics, and insane details.
