I like honest photography, the type that you look at and either immediately reject or appreciate (sometimes for reasons unknown). As part of the latest Third Looks photo feature, I’ll be sharing the work of of California based photographer Shona Sanzgiri. He’s taken photos for the likes of Adult Magazine and Vice and has a great eye for natural beauty whether found in travels or everyday moments. Check out an interview and selection of his work after the jump.
If you’re looking at your wardrobe at the moment and feeling uninspired, there’s fortunately a ton of great deals to be found at the moment. Alot of Spring/Summer ’15 items are now hitting the sale sections of some of the top online stores. This means you can scoop items you’ve been coveting for the low-low. Don’t be stuck paying retail, check out the list of deals below that include some of the best sales from the likes of Oki-Ni, Barney’s, Nike and more.
Celebrated Italian retailer Slam Jam Socialism presents their take on the Undercover Spring/Summer 2015 collection. Religious reference and renaissance paintings have been part of UC designer Jun Takahashi’s repertoire for some time now and this editorial investigates this inspiration at the source. The Sanctuary of the Blessed Virgin of San Luca was selected as the backdrop for this photoshoot. Situated on top of the hills around Bologna, the well-worn stonework effectively contrasts the current UC collection.

If you’ve caught the news at all over the past week, tensions have risen in Baltimore resulting in clashes between protestors, rioters and police. The media has been heavy criticized and many have turned to social media to get a better account of what is actually happening in the city of Baltimore. Photographer CJ Treasure has been on the ground in Baltimore using his camera as a means of documenting what’s been transpiring there. What he has been able to shoot reveals a compelling portrait of how the current protests have affected the community from law enforcement to families.
Seige’s work was previously featured on Third Looks as well.
Today marks the launch of a new feature on Third Looks called ‘LOOKS/LIES’. The concept came as a result of various discussions between my friend Jayne Lies and I. We’ve teamed up on some projects in the past including the Verticals music video for Celestial Trax and we always found the experience rewarding and eye-opening. We decided to launch this feature together as a means of preserving a moment in time (through photographic snapshots) in a quick and fun interview format. This ongoing series will serve as a platform through which we can document each subject’s style , aura thoughts and experiences within our local communities and beyond.
To launch the feature, Lies took a few photos of myself as I had been looking for a way to share my personal style is at currently. Through the word association style interview questions that she put together, you should also get to know where i’ve been and where my head is at now.

Supreme has it’s seasonal launches down to a science at this point. The routine goes as follows they close the store before the start of a new season, put up an annual advertising program (this time with Neil Young outfitted in a box logo) and then they release a preview of what pieces are to come this Spring/Summer 2015. Supreme has transcended skateboarding and streetwear to become a ubiquitous New York brand; one that you’re bound to see countless times walking around downtown Manhattan.
I’ve gone through the preview and filtered down to what I think are the standout items. Of course there hasn’t been any leaks of the collaborations to come this season, but it has been confirmed that we should be seeing a Undercover x Supreme collaboration quite soon.
See my personal picks from the SS15 collection.
Supreme Reversible Cotton MA-1
The market has been filled with good variations on the MA-1 bomber and I like that this reversible cotton version keeps it straight to the point. A decent departure from the usual nylon fabrication, the jacket can be worn plenty of ways and should pair well with typical streetwear staples.
Supreme x Schott A-2 Leather Jacket
The Schott collaboration has become an annual thing at this point and this A-2 bomber should provide a slimmer fit than repro brands and a cheaper pricepoint than higher end Japanese labels.
Supreme Terry Football Top
While it’s hard to recall burning temps in the middle of a frigid Febuary, terry cloth will be a welcome fabric come July.

This editorial was the result of a collaborative effort between Third Looks and EYES & SINS. As I’ve previously noted, EYES & SINS is a brand which relies on a potent graphical narrative with each collection (also reflected in every pixel of their web presence – from the interactive website to promotional animated shorts on social media).
Billy Fischer pieced together these moving images from various EYES & SINS pieces modeled over a contrasting projection of visuals from past DWMS events (by Note PTP) to further delineate the brand’s graphical cyber-militaria design approach.
