Graduated at the legendary Bunka Fashion College in Tokyo in 1991, Jun Takahashi founded Undercover with some friends during his school-years. He presented his first official collection in 1994 at the Tokyo Fashion Week, debuting at the Paris Fashion Week in 2003. At the beginning of his career Takahashi drew inspiration mainly from the Tokyo street-style as well from the punk culture, while over the years his subversive style has increasingly become more sophisticated and conceptual.
