2013 has been a big year for Rome Fortune. Coming out the Atlanta scene he’s built up significant buzz with his ‘Beautiful Pimp’ mixtape. Frequent collaborators C4 and Childish Major have been lacing him with experimental instrumentals that compliment his effortless laid-back delivery. He was a feature on the recent Gucci Mane joint ‘Stripes’ and just ripped a set alongside PTP family Gila Monster at 285 Kent in Brooklyn.
Outside of his music prowess, Rome is someone you’ll always see expressing his personal style through his clothing choices. When we first met, he told me that he had been a fan of Third Looks for some time, so it’s nice to bring things full circle with this feature. Rome and I had a conversation that touches on hip-hop style, girls and world rap domination.

Vogue Germany enlists veteran model Yasmin Le Bon for this androgynous summer editorial for their June issue. The 48 year old Le Bon looks stunning in statement pieces such as the iconic Givenchy AW 2013 jacket above. The styling reminds me of the Johnny Depp film ‘Cry Baby’.

The best responses will be posted on here in a regular feature called ‘Second Opinion.’ Don’t be shy and submit your questions via E-mail or ask directly by mentioning us on twitter.
I’ve loved the design of this parka since it was sent down Paris runways. It’s appeared in the past in different fabrics, but this ultra lightweight sheer version will keep you stunting all spring/summer long. With a zip closure, oversized hood and tons of pockets for you to store passports and sandwiches in, this jacket goes perfect with Rick drop-crotch shorts, his poplin sweatpants and a pair of white sneakers.
The only setback might be the price.
Available for $2440 at SSENSE.
We’ve all been in situations on the road where hotel’s and travel accomodations didn’t really meet expectations. This short film “No F****** Around In Room 427″ riffs off that exact concept. This short film is by London based photographer and filmmaker Danny Sangra. He’s worked on the likes of Miu Miu, Prada, Marc Jacobs in the past and this time around he worked with online shop The Great Divide who provided the wardrobe for the video .
Honeyee released images of the Spring/Summer 2013 Visvim collection in a feature entitled ‘Colors in Summer.’ Once again Hiroki Nakamura’s iterative approach to design is visible through the product assortment. Familar items such as the SOCIAL SCULPTURE DENIM JACKET, TROPICAL COMBAT SHIRT and LAMINA backpack are re-interpreted through a lighter pastel-based palette. New footwear appears too in the form of SKAGWAYS, HOCKEYS and VIRGILS.

C.E has released a lookbook featuring their spring/summer collection. As in the prior videos, the pieces are modeled by Zomby. If you’re looking for an elevated take on streetwear that is still fairly priced, C.E delivers just that. The brand has not really made it’s way to North American shores just yet but you can now find a sampling of the line over at the Hypebeast store.
More looks after the jump including the white coaches jacket which is the highlight for me.

The homie Harry submitted these Raf Simons boots from Autumn/Winter 2006 for a coveted feature. He’s owned them so long and beat them up quite well and he didn’t have alot to say about them. He summarized his feelings on these in the following passage.
6 Canadian winters. 4 soles sewn on. 2 heels replaced. 1 major re-attachment surgery. Countless polishes and salt treatments. Still alive and kicking.
I’ve regretted selling some of my early Raf pieces in the past so it always makes me so happy to see my friends who kept their Raf stuff and worn it to hell. What I love about these boots are the buckle detailing at the ankle. Buckle straps are usually hit or miss on men’s boots but this is a really great iteration of that concept. The sleek shape , beautiful leather make these absolutely worth hunting down. I suppose I’ll leave it at this, if you’re looking for a perfect black boot, don’t compromise and rush getting something that you don’t love. It’s better to wait for the pair that feels exactly right.

Highland FW13 Lookbook
After discovering Highland online last year, I have been tracking the development of the New York based men’s label. I always give alot of credence to any brand who takes risks with their fashion week shows and the one Highland put on last NYFW was one of the most memorable I’ve ever attended. The presentation was delivered in a room with sururban wallpaper backdrops on one side and on the other: anteractive stoner basement set (complete with Doritos, a N64, bongs and a PBR pyramid).
I visited Cramer Tolboe (Co-founder of Highland) and Lizzie Owens (Head Designer and co-founder) in their Brooklyn studios to have a conversation on the origins of the brand, the trails and tribulations along the way and where Highland is going next.
