This editorial from the ‘1997’ issue of Fucking Young is inspired by rave and electronic music culture in the mid to late 90s. There are some great pieces featured with everything from Raf Simons , Highland, Adidas and Siki Im being used to paint a drug-induced portrait. Ian Bradley definetly killed it with the styling on this one, check out his Style Profile if you haven’t already.

My experience has been if you want something really bad, there is a good chance you’ll get it in the end. When I discovered these shoes, the season was already changing and stores were switching to new spring/summer pieces. I called practically every Dior boutique in North America and Europe but to no avail. I scoured the internet, on fashion forums, on eBay, and eventually ended up with a pair of white on white low tops that were 2 sizes too big. After about 6 months of occasionally scanning eBay and ready to give up, I managed to come across a listing for exactly what I was looking for in Germany.

There have been few times when I knew I couldn’t settle for any alternatives, that taking the effort to get what I wanted would be worthwhile, and those pieces would come with a story.

Ed.Note
Harry makes his second Coveted contribution to Third Looks. In it he expresses something I’ve definetly experinced myself. Part of the appeal of clothes to me is the hunt. Seeing something you truly want and searching high and low for it until it somehow finally ends up in your possession. It’s the fashion equivalent of serendipity and it’s a truly satisfying feeling owning something you absolutely love, as opposed to buying another piece you just like. There’s been times where I’ve had to save up for months just to afford an items and in many cases those are the things I still treasure to this day. – Rocky

As promised here is Part 2 of ‘A Study in Contrasts’ shot by Rebekah Seok.

It’s so inspiring to see how much joy Rebekah gets from shooting ; she’s one of the reasons I’ve become interested in taking up film photography. Her photography style couldn’t be more different than my own but we both share a desire to capture the people and things in our reality we find most compelling. Film and digital photography are different beasts but the most influential variable is always the person behind the lens.

Rebekah just got a twitter, you can follow her HERE and see more of her photos on her Tumblr.

This is the first Third Looks editorial.  It’s an exploration on contrasts : Black & white vs color imagery, monochromatic outfits vs bright pops of color and eye-catching patterns, film vs digital photography.

The objective of this editorial is to show that even  simple outfit concepts  (for example a denim jacket and trousers) can be executed in wildly different ways.  Many current fashion editorials are focused on the creation of a fantastical mono-branded  aesthetic. A Study in Contrasts mimics the label-mixed reality of everyday dressing and serves as a reminder that how you wear something is just as important as what you are wearing. No matter the labels and pieces you select, I believe that your personality and personal style should shine through.

Thrifting and vintage shopping are not easy endeavors. Finding great used items for cheap requires time, dedication and most importantly, a discerning eye. The vintage look has approached cliche in New York; one has to travel no further than Williamsburg to see an army uniformed in washed denim, faded band t-shirts, and ill-fitting outerwear.

However when it’s done right mixing designer brands with vintage pieces is a thing of beauty. One of my close friends who does this better than pretty much anyone I know is Jimmy Jimeno who is the men’s store manager at Opening Ceremony. I’ve known Jimmy since his Toronto days and have seen him steadily build up a wardrobe filled with odds and ends from accross the style spectrum. To me Jimmy embodies a style perspective we should all embrace : ‘Wear what reflects your interests and personality.’ I’m excited to share Jimmy’s style with you all and in the spirit of the shoot I let Jimmy give a name to each of the below looks.

I asked Jimmy how he shopped and was able to find meaningful additions to his wardrobe.

“For a while now, I’ve been finding most of my clothing at thrift stores or consignment boutiques. If I see something I like then I cop it, but trust that I got it for cheap. As a bit of an impulse shopper, I really don’t look for anything in particular aside from emotional satisfaction. Although, every new piece I buy can definitely be styled with other pieces in my closet.”

Jimmy on his personal style inspiration :

“Having grown up traveling all over the world and moving to a new place every two to three years, I’m what you call a third culture kid. A defining characteristic of a “TCK” is possessing a unique world view, which allows the individual to be highly accepting of other cultures and empathetic towards people who are different. This way of thinking has influenced my fashion sensibilities. Everything/everyone inspires me, and I find beauty everywhere, but to sift through all the bullshit, especially when it comes to fashion, requires a very critical eye and opinion.

Thus, besides adhering to menswear basics of good fit and practicality, my style is finding a comfortable balance between various contrasting elements – masculinity vs. femininity, conservative vs. avant garde, high class vs. hood, monochrome vs. colorful, looking like an anime character vs. looking to get laid, trying hard vs. not giving a fuck…”

A topic that Jimmy and I have discussed at length is what we’d like to see change in the fashion industry.

“In general, I wish menswear wasn’t so cut and dry. I wish it wasn’t so hard for high fashion to embrace other non-Western, atypical ideas of beauty. I wish industry heads would get off their own dicks and be less contrived. I wish true trendsetters got more recognition.”
