Japanese designer Jun Takahashi has always adopted an unconventional approach when it comes to his menswear label JohnUNDERCOVER. Not one to follow the rules, Takahashi launched the line in 1993 before he’d even graduated from Tokyo’s Bunka Academy of Fashion. With a pioneering spirit and the support of Rei Kawakubo of Comme des Garçons, his first collection proved one of the first forays into the streetwear-couture stratosphere that now permeates the runway. Characterised by unexpected elements and deconstructive tailoring, look to JohnUNDERCOVER for clothes that prove a discerning and surrealistic interpretation of urban style.
