Founded by Jun Takahashi Undercover epitomizes the essence of "Japanese cool". Undercover produces finely crafted clothing pieces drawing influence from punk and street fashion. Takahashi was heavily influenced by British Punk rock band "The Sex Pistols" and lead singer Johnny Rotten of which he was told he resembled. The brand was established in 1993 when Takahashi and BAPE founder Nigo opened up the store Nowhere in the Tokyo district of Harajuku. Both Nowhere and Undercover really took off at this time and his work soon was at the epicenter of the fashion scene during the Ura-Harajuku Movement in the 90's. By Takahashi's own definition Undercover is "strange, but beautiful". Takahashi and Undercover have won numerous awards and have been highly praised and coveted worldwide. HAVEN is the exclusive Canadian stockist of Undercover.
