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

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.

Rap and fashion are increasingly interlinked to the point where it seems every other rap verse namedrops at least 2 designer names. I collaborated with English illustrator Rebel Youth on these sketches of various rappers in various gear from current SS14 and FW14 collections. Time will tell if any of these outfits will come to fruition in the real life but hope you find the idea of Guwop in TB or Lil’B wearing Undercover as amusing as we did.

It’s a beautiful thing when friends come together to create something altogether new. Some of you may have seen a beta cut of this visual at the PTP Pop-Up party a few weeks back but it’s since been re-vamped and set to ‘Verticals’ by Celestial Trax. LIES got behind the lens to shoot the our rambunctious model Juna draped in the Purple Tape Pedigree capsule collection. Choubi and set designer Jeremy also provide creative assists on this. If you’re feeling the video or just know the track record of the previous DWMS events, do come out Friday night for DWMS3.

I’m proud to present the lookbook for the debut collection from New York based label Purple Tape Pedigree. The 5-piece capsule ‘Good For Health’ collection includes 2 jerseys, 2 long-sleeve t-shirts, and a collaborative PTP x Third Looks ‘Pill’ coach’s jacket. The lookbook was creative directed by yours truly and we assembled a diverse group of friends and colleagues to represent the collection. No stylists were necessary as each person worked the pieces into their own personal style.

Inspiration for the collection includes Hong Kong cinema, Japanese anime from the 80’s, 20th century Brazilian surrealist art, post-2000 A.D. cyberpunks, and the onset of big city paranoia. The gear is available now on the PTP Garment District. New York heads will be able to see the gear in person at a special pop-up event and release party on May 31st (More details to be released shortly).

With a huge snowstorm  currently making it’s way through the North East I thought there would be no better time to make this post recommending sweatpants for the season.  2013 was a big year for staying cozy and 2014 looks to be no different.  If you want to stay comfortable while making more than just corner bodega runs in sweats, you’ll be well served with any of the below options.

best sweatpants 2014 Sweatpants for 2014

Nike Tech Fleece Pant

These have Nike sweats have been hyped up and often sellout within hours when they drop online at Nike.com. I wasn’t sure they would live up to the acclaim but after getting two pairs for myself, I wholeheartly recommended these joints. The tech fleece material is lighter and provides great comfort without being any less warm. The zipper pockets at the back and left side of the pants keep your belongings safe and the cuffed design works well with a variety of sneakers and boots. Plus these are a relative steal at $80 retail.

Available at Nike.com

best sweatpants 2014 2 Sweatpants for 2014

Thom Browne Drawstring Lounge Pants

You may have seen Lucas rocking these in the recent style profile, but these sweatpants are definitely winners. The branded tri-color cuffs and leg detail make this the perfect item to pair with TB shirting or if you’re really splashing out a Moncler Gamme Bleu outerwear piece. These will set you back a pretty penny at a retail price of over $550 but you can catch a detail over at SSENSE for the olive green ones. New Yorkers can find these at the Thom Browne shop-in-shop at Dover Street Market New York.

Tartan Sweatpant by Wings + Horns for Steven Alan

These joints by Wings and Horns will get  get the job done. A classy drawstring detail and a slimish fit and non-descript heather grey cotton round out the features on these sweats. Scoop these at Steven Alan on sale for $136.

best sweatpants 2014 4 Sweatpants for 2014

Norse Projects – Gustav Wool Pant 

A wool/cotton blend  and plenty of color choices make this a solid contender. Norse Project delivers good quality basics at reasonable prices and once again that’s the case here. The above ‘fig’ colorway keeps things civilized enough that you could theoretically wear these to a wine and cheese without getting laughed at.

best sweatpants 2014 5 Sweatpants for 2014

WTAPS Hellweek Sweats

Mil-spec specialists WTAPS puts out the heavy-weight Hellweek sweatpants. Quite a bit of branding on here but if you have other WTAPS gear to pair with this, these sweats are an easy choice. 168 EURO at Firmament.

Y-3 Track Pants

I spotted these in the Y-3 boutique this past week but didn’t get a chance to try them on unfortunately. I definitely liked the material and technical details and I didn’t mind the placement of the logo hit either. These feel luxe, and you can scoop em in-store at the Y-3 store or find them on sale at Memes.
