undercover 2015 spring summer collection main Undercover SS15 Collection

While it’s a little early to really start planning purchases for next summer, it’s always exciting for me to see what UC puts out each season. Now that the brand has so many seasons to pull from the design team can mix and match themes and concepts from previous seasons and incorporate them in new ways. You see many of these UC signatures in this collection: large-print graphics (this time courtesy of the influential 70′s rock band Television) novel prints, screen-printed branding and a familiar punk rock proportions (think razor sharp and skinny distressed denim with rider jackets and coats). Standouts are the statement wool hats, printed bomber and rainy-day outerwear.  To me this collection is a continuation of the similar ideas and cuts from the pyscho candy but mixed in with some of the mod influence from the UC Neoboy/Poptone collection.

The stifling humidity and faint stench of garbage signal the arrival of summer in New York. While it may difficult to find inspiration for dressing in this weather, I’ve collected a series of images that can set the mood for how you can stay cool and comfortable through the season.

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.

Adidas and Rick Owens team up again on their second collaborative sneaker model the Tech Runner. The first release was a love it or hate it affair and it looks like the same will hold true this time. Inspiration this time around comes via the B-2 Stealth Bomber, and you can see these angular lines transalted on the EVA midsole. I actually prefer these to the original model though the grey suede/sand colorway stands out as the one I’d wear from the bunch. Expect these to release later this summer so look out for updates here on their release.

New York has been a constant source of adventure, mystery and discovery for me and these photos reflect the random diversity everyday life here. I admire Steve’s hustle to get out there so regularly and shoot street photography such as these.  The series of images he submitted were all shot on film over the past year.

I’ve seen his skills develop over the past year and it’s good to see that he’s garnered quite the audience on instagram. Follow him there for a steady stream of compelling photos accompanied by some of the funniest commentary on the platform.

You can check out Steve’s Tumblr and click through for more images.

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).

Japanese label Julius has been one of the originators in the gothninja look for some time. Their signature are their razor thin distressed leather jackets styled in a fashion that strikes between industrial and rock n roll. While the look has now been diffused down to countless new labels and store shelves, Julius remains one of the best doing it if you like your clothes dark ,drapey and raw. This coveted write-up comes via contributor Zachary Leachman who is an Illinois based artist and musician. See the rest of the write-up and more photos after the jump.
