adidas tubular release Adidas Tubular Release & Stockists

Anticipation for the release of the Adidas Tubular runner has steadily climbed and now that day is here (at for those of you in Europe). Hype first started building through blurry leaked photos of the sneaker allegedly linking the design to the forthcoming Kanye West ‘Yeezi’ collection. Since then we’ve seen a steady flood of news and photos from sneaker and streetwear websites, basically billing the shoe as a brokeboy version of the Adidas Y-3 Qasa. Seeing that the retail price of $110 is less than 1/3 the price of the Qasa, it’s no wonder that there’s so many people excited to rock these sneakers. The sneaker itself is an amalgamation of popular Adidas models; borrowing the sole unit from the aforementioned Y-3 Qasa and the back support from the ZX Flux.  The sneaker is an attempt to update the Adidas classics line with a more minimal high-tech feel and in that goal it’s successful. My only criticism of the sneaker is that the  branded front leather tab feels out of place and takes away from the other clean lines.

If you’re looking for these sneakers, they’re available at quite a few stockists worldwide. If you’re looking to cop online,  I hope the below links help , note that not all the links will be live just yet. Expect them to sell out quickly but rest assured that more colorways of the sneaker are on their way and there should be more stock arriving at stores soon.

phenomenon spring summer 2015 lookbook 4 Phenomenon SS15 Lookbook

Tokyo based label Phenomenon releases this lookbook to promote it’s spring/summer 2015 collection. The brand has always been identified with it’s over the top takes on streetwear and while it retains it’s wild streak, the Japanese brand has become more refined since it’s beginnings. There’s still tons of details in most of the garments in here, a MA-1 sleeve pocket on a stadium jacket? Check. Severely ripped up denim? Check. Overall though I really did enjoy the photography here and the use of regular people over traditional models. The whole lookbook feels more like a page out of Tune Magazine, and in that regard it’s successful. I can also grant Phenomenon of pairing mens and womenswear together in some of the lookbook shots in a way that isn’t cheesy or overwrought.

I find that backpacks are the my favorite way to carry essential items from point A to B. If you’re looking for a new well designed pack, I’ve selected some of the best of the season below.

third looks best backpacks 3 Best Backpacks for FW14/15

Acne Olov Backpack

Pretty much as minimal as you can get, this Acne backpack features extremely clean lines in shiny black nylon with minimal stitching. This will pretty much go with anything you want to wear and features a classic schoolbag shape.

$320 at Acne

Visvim 20L Ballistic nylon and canvas backpack

Visvim backpacks are famed for their design, durability and just how damn good they look. These recur season to season with slight revisions on the style popping up each year. This year’s edition comes in navy ballistic nylon with a robust suede bottom. Plenty of zippered pockets and padded back/shoulders will keep you comfortable. While the pricepoint is steep, rest assured that this is one of the best packs on the market.

$690 at Mr.Porter

Undercover Olive Drab Porter Edition Backpack 

Undercover re-vives it’s classic bag shape for Fall/Winter 2014 with a collaboration with Porter. The two signature two pocket design is now in standard Porter nylon along with some nice detailing : brass hardware, cowhide trim and tonal stitching. This edition of the pack shouldn’t be around for long so if you can’t scoop an older version online, this may be an excellent choice.

$675 at SSENSE

Master-Piece Surpass Backpack

Master-Piece makes some great packs that provide good value given the made in Japan quality. While plebes might get it mixed up with a Herschel, you’ll be the wiser. Cordura Nylon fabric and leather shoulder straps make this stand above the average pack.

$250 at East Dane

Marni Grey Felt and Leather Backpack 

If you’re feeling a bit too grown for a backpack, you may want to go with something a bit more luxe and low-key like this grey felt bag by Marni. A really pared down design that is mainly led by it’s materials. Grey felt wool and contrasting black leather panels. This backpack is job-interview approved.

£600  at Oki-Ni

Balenciaga Classic Traveller Backpack

Balenciaga outfits their Classic Traveller bacckpack  in forest green nylon with black leather accents. This is definetly at a luxury designer pricepoint so it isn’t for everyone, but it definetly would pair well with a clean techy wardrobe full of items from Dries, MMM, Jil Sander and Raf. While you may have to be part of the ruling class to afford this thing, those of you can who can pull it should be able to put together some great outfits using it.

$1,465 at Barney’s

third looks mix 006 Third Looks Mix 006   Deejay Rueckert

Im exited to present another mix in the series, this time from Deejay Ruckert founder of classical trax and the label Paradise rhythm. Not only is he an excellent arbiter of new electronic music, he’s a skilled selector in his own right putting together this electric 90 minute mix for you guys. The mix goes in many different directions but maintains it’s progressive hard hitting DNA throughout. In Rueckert’s own words he describes the mix below.

I wanted to make a mix that represents raw club music, hence the opening. All the music in the mix  is pushing forward the sound of grime and club. Make sure you lookout out for releases from my label, Paradise Rhythm as well as my new curated mix series, Mutations.

Thanks your friend…Deejay Rueckert
