thesoloist fw 14 6 TheSoloist SS15 Lookbook

Through his design career, Takahiro Miyashita has returned to Western motifs time and again. It seems he’s also simplified many of his designs to key silhouettes and patterns. Gone are some of the more ornate details of older Soloist collections and personally I feel they are a bit missed here. On the positive side, the selection of light outerwear, oversized shirting and denim found in the Spring/Summer collection should be easy to incorporate into your wardrobe.

Fresh off the heels of a collaborative collection with Supreme, Stone Island puts out a new visual ‘Neo-Lux’. The stuttery video alternates between close-ups of fabric and outerwear details to broader shots of key AW14 outerwear against shifting digital backdrops. You can find many of the pieces now over at the Stone Island online shop.

I stumbled across this short video clip highlighting the Y-3 Qasa sneaker. The Qasa is one of the standout sneaker releases of 2014 and this visual really places it in a well-matched urban environment.   Gear from Acronym, Arc’teryx Veilance, and EYES & SINS is paired with the Y-3s. If you’re looking for this sneaker, the Adidas Y-3 site should have a restock soon.

The video was shot and edited by Ryan Sheppard and Waley Gao and features music by Evian Christ.

undercover x nike gyakusou 2014 holiday collection 2 Undercover x Nike Gyakusou Holiday Collection

Nike returns with another Gyakusou collection slated to arrive October 23. The clothing here continues the trend towards functionality and away from the more stylized looks of past seasons. There’s no prints this time around, just clean muted colors, articulated joints and selective screen-printed branding.  Jun Takahashi set out to create single-layer garments he could run and the emphasis on utility shows in the designs.

Among the more innovative pieces are the Utility Long Tights which seamless blend running shorts with tights.  Engineered Sleeve Composite Jacket, which should keep wearers dry and warm in most environments.  I get the impression that Undercover fans who have intend to wear the gear more casually will be disappointed but hardcore runners should once again find plenty to love this time around. Get the collection online or at Nike LAB stores worldwide.

void main 2 Void Main Launch

void main 1 Void Main Launch

Buzz has been circulating around Void Main since the website launched several weeks ago. Today marks the official launch of  the webshop and the release of the first official lookbook from the label. The graphic based designs draw from varied references from within internet culture, video games and comics. The styling of both the lookbook and video ‘Eternity Glitch, Transhuman warrior’ play with the themes of anonymity, technology, banality with a good dose of genuine weirdness thrown in. The whole presentation of the brand feels refreshingly detached from most of what is going on in fashion and/or streetwear.

Videography by Diego Enrique Flores
Music by GILA MONSTA
Model: David Kresses

As a special treat for Third Looks readers, you can enter promo code ‘THIRDLOOKS’ on the Void Main webstore and save yourself $15 off any item.
