Third%20Looks%20Mix%20005%20owwwls Third Looks Mix 005   owwwls

Today I’m excited to bring back the Third Looks mix from Brooklyn based DJ and producer owwwls. He recently collaborated with Princess Nokia‘s on her debut mixtape  ‘Metallic Butterfly’ and has recorded a uptempo soundtrack filled with underground club music.

For a better idea of what to expect, I asked owwwls to intro the mix

This mix closely reflects my current club music influences. Wanted to put something together hard hitting and atmospheric, with influences of RnB, Trap, and New Bass/Garage, with some Kawaii and Big Room elements.

You can find owwwls on twitter and soundcloud.

facetasm 2015 spring summer collection 1 Facetasm SS15 Collection

Japanese label Facetasm showed their Spring/Summer 2015 collection at Tokyo Fashion week. The label is known for it’s wild takes on streetwear with exaggerated color palettes and shapes.  Designer Hiromichi Ochiai wanted to achieve a balance between ‘dressing up and dressing down’ for this fashion week outing and he is successful in  blending a mix of wilder pieces with more basic items that regular guys can feel comfortable adding to their closets.

Much of the styling here plays around the length of garments, with many looks featuring several different lengths overtop slim tapered pants or baggy more playful shorts. If you found past Facetasm collections a bit too intimidating to wear but still had an appreciation for the aesthetic of the brand , you should be able to find more low-key items this time around. On the contrary if you are looking for the wild and crazy stuff there’s plenty of it here including crossed lapel tuxedos and wide ponchos.

If you are fiending for current season product you can find it at over at H.Lorenzo.

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.

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.
