Third Looks teams up with PTP (Purple Tape Pedigree) for our second collaborative effort. On the heels of the TLxPTP ‘Pill’ Hood comes the more reverse weave goodness in the form of the new ‘Wifey’ hoody. Taking inspiration from the one and only Kiko Mizuahara; actress, model and dream wifey for countless humans on this planet.
The crewnecks are printed on heavyweight reverse weave Champion® sweatshirts and also feature subtle logo details on the sleeve and back. Profess your love for Kiko and all that’s good in the universe. Head over to PTP shop to secure one before they sell out for good.

2014 was a huge year for sneakers with countless memorable releases having come and gone. The sneaker industry is witnessing massive change and one can see the growing popularity of sneakers in the fashion community running parallel to the continued innovation within the sports/performance sector.
One of the key themes with sneaker design this year has been the development of more lifestyle releases that result from collaborations with varied parties from the streetwear and fashion worlds. In particular Adidas has continued to apply pressure to Nike through it’s established relationships with the likes of Yohji Yamamoto, Rick Owens , Kanye West and Pharrell. The later part of the year saw Nike continue to develop its SP (Special Projects) division with more limited and quickstrike releases that combine higher quality materials along with outside design influence from the likes of Errolson Hugh and Jun Takahashi.
As part of this commitment to the fashion industry, we see prices of certain more ‘luxe’ releases such as the Tisci x Nike Air Force 1 nearly reaching the pricepoint of high fashion designer sneakers. I think this is a good development in the long run as the sneaker giants are able to develop more innovative designs compared to largely apparel designers needing to figure out their own production and technology. It’ll be interesting to see if these trends perpetuate in the near year but in the meantime here is my personal list of the best sneaker releaes of 2014.

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
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.

Few things are as badass as wearing dead animal skins but unfortunately finding the ideal leather can do some major damage to your wallet. If you’re on the hunt be sure to read through this guide and save yourself hours of pain-staking research. I’m going to cover some of the key considerations to make when shopping for the right jacket. This will include breaking down the major styles and covering things such as fit and types of leather.

Future in Saint Laurent, Gucci Mane in Thom Browne
A$AP Rocky in C.E , Drake in Rick Owens
Kanye West in Damir Doma, Lil’B in Undercover & Dirty ass vans
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.
Each summer it’s a must that I pick up some new t-shirts. I styled this editorial with some of recent favorites with frequent Third Looks photo collaborator Rebekah Seok. Check after the jump for my selects with items from Givenchy, 3.1 Phillip Lim, C.E and more.
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).
