third looks bumming around jayne lies 3 Bumming Around Vol. 16 Mirage by Jayne Lies

I’m excited to bring back Bumming Around with this photo feature with work by my friend Jayne Lies. She’s a New York photographer and visual artist. Jayne submitted this selection of 35mm film shots that capture a slice of everyday New York life through her eyes. The style of the photos is candid and voyeuristic and the subject matter revolves around the sighs and people that you might miss walking New York streets.  There’s footage here from the recent Eric Garner protests as well as portraits displaying the character and struggle of  OG New Yorkers.

Be sure to check out Jayne’s website HERE and also you can follow her on instagram. See the entire series ‘Mirage’ feature after the jump.

the north face purple label 2015 spring summer lookbook 1 The North Face Purple Label SS15 Lookbook

The North Face Purple Label has evolved into what the regular North Face brand would be in an utopian American Society. The Japan sub-brand is understated, lightly branded and has a practical slim cut that still allows for layering. Select items are available for both men and women. On the men’s side, the outerwear once again steals the show with a clean color palette of beiges, navy, white and charcoal. There’s also splashes of color with olive green , orange and a really great rainforest print. The styling is easy to emulate for those who really want to buy into the brands look. For those who don’t want to splash out on some of the more standout jackets and coats, there’s plenty of basics (shirting, trousers, turtlenecks) and accessories (check the Bell hat featured in a few looks) to help you fill gaps in your wardrobe.

Oh lastly, I also have to give a shoutout to whoever casts these female models for North Face Purple Label’s shoots, as they definitely killed it again with another girl who’s waifu status. Anyway click through to see all the looks from the spring/summer 2015 season and check the official site for more info on the entire range

visvim 2015 spring summer editorial by sense magazine 1 Visvim SS15 Editorial in SENSE Magazine

As per usual each season Visvim introduces their seasonal collection in the pages of Japanese men’s style mag SENSE. The spring/summer 2015 selection isn’t much of a departure from past collections although it does seem like Hirkoi wanted to bring a more casual approach this time around as seen in the graphic tees and some of the busier ‘vintage’ prints. Of particular note is the return of the townsend fishtail in an washed cotton and a striking red Nomad jacket. See both pieces after the jump and shop select items on the visvim webstore or retailers such as SSENSE, Farfetch and Barney’s.
