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.

void main 2 Void Main Launch

void main 1 Void Main Launch

Buzz has been circulating around Void Main since the website launched several weeks ago. Today marks the official launch of  the webshop and the release of the first official lookbook from the label. The graphic based designs draw from varied references from within internet culture, video games and comics. The styling of both the lookbook and video ‘Eternity Glitch, Transhuman warrior’ play with the themes of anonymity, technology, banality with a good dose of genuine weirdness thrown in. The whole presentation of the brand feels refreshingly detached from most of what is going on in fashion and/or streetwear.

Videography by Diego Enrique Flores
Music by GILA MONSTA
Model: David Kresses

As a special treat for Third Looks readers, you can enter promo code ‘THIRDLOOKS’ on the Void Main webstore and save yourself $15 off any item.

the north face purple label 2014 fall winter lookbook 1 North Face Purple Label FW14 Lookbook

the north face purple label 2014 fall winter lookbook 3 North Face Purple Label FW14 Lookbook

North Face Purple label is the sartorial equivalent of those elusive Japanese Green tea or Red Bean Kit-Kats. While North Face’s reputation in the states is mainly based on it’s ability to deliver functional garments in a variety of challenging environmental  conditions, Purple label is it’s more exclusive and refined sister label.

As in the past few lookbooks, the collection is presented with format with looks for both genders that are consistently on point. I also have to note that the model in this is a dime and a far cry from countless basic bitch still rocking those North Face fleeces with UGGs. The garments themselves are mostly navy, tan or olive and in terms of the men’s pieces there’s a great variety of things here. From what looks to be a gore-tex fur-lined hooded parka to an easy grey crewneck/suitpant combination. The mix of proportions and textures really give some solid inspiration for how to dress for colder days ahead. See all the looks after the jump and hit nanamica to cop.

11 by boris bidjan saberi 2014 fall winter lookbook 1 11 by Boris Bidjan Saberi FW14 Lookbook

11 by Boris Bidjan Saberi is the Barcelona’s-based designer’s more accessible menswear line. It shares much of the same design DNA as the Saberi’ namesake mainline : monochrome color palette, distressed treatments and a heavy militaristic edge. A continual theme throughout the line are the badge patterns derived from military award ceremonies. The most exciting takeaway from this lookbook for me were the jackets. Looking forward to seeing more close-up images of the bomber jacket and the hooded raincoat. You can find select pieces from the collection already online at Antonioli.

Neighborhood has collaborated with a long list of brands over it’s history and now there’s one more label to add the list. Neighborhood links up with Carhartt on a capsule collection that merges the workwear aesthetic of Carhartt with the punk/biker look of Neighborhood. Alot of the items are familiar flips of existing Neighborhood styles such as the embroidered denim shirt. Many of the pieces from the capsule collection riff use leopard print accents. The most interesting piece from the collection is what looks to be a workwear cotton rider jacket.  I’d like to see what the retail price ends up being on these pieces to see if there are indeed some gems worth picking up. Look for the collection to drop in-stores by late August and online via Carhartt WIP on September 4th.
