Nike and Undercover continue their ongoing collaboration with a fresh season of Gyakusou. The spring edition brings bright pops of colors and a return of some classic prints from years past. As usual the technical aspect of the clothing utilizes Nike technologies like Dri-FIT and AeroReact. The sneaker this time around is the LunarEpic Low Flyknit 2. The best pieces from the collection are the striped track jackets that utilize the leaf camo.

The collection should be available on the Nike Lab website later this month but you can preview all the items on the site now.

It’s hard to believe that Nike Lab and Jun Takahashi of Undercover have been collaborating on their line of running apparel Gyakusou for over six years. Through the process, the collection has continually evolved drawing from both Nike technology and Jun Takahashi’s punk sensibilities. While I felt the last few seasons have been lackluster, Gyaksou returns in fine form this year. The line features an fantastic color palette for fall and even sees a return of the infamous UC Giz print. The above video gives insight into the design process and great cropped views of the gear in motion.

Included are new items including a water-resistant LunarEpic Flyknit trainer, Aeroloft down jackets with removable sleeves.  Launching November 10th online and at select NikeLab stockists online such as END and Dover St Market.

The collection is now available at Nike Lab.

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.

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.

Pro-tip for the less athletically inclined: Gyakusou also makes for incredible lounge/bodega wear.  See my favorite pieces from the release below. Find the collection on Oki-Ni HERE.

GYAKUSOU  is back for the colder months. Once again Jun Takahashi speared the design on this technical line for runners. To accompany the product shots , there are also these more stylized lookbook images featuring the clothes in action in a forest setting. The Holiday line seems to emphasize performance and technical features.  The centerpiece of it is the Nike Aeroloft Vest is a lightweight layering piece that can be worn to maintain warmth overtop the Dri-Fit thermals, longsleeve and shortsleeve tops. 

The collection also features these accesories: a Knit Cap, Thermal Running Gloves, and Dri-FIT Neck Warmer. Also on deck are 6 colorways of runners.  Once again Jun chooses the Nike LunarGlide+ 5 and the Nike Lunarspider LT+ 3 but this time the colorsways are tonal in nature.

The LunarGlide+ 5 in tonal red and brown colorways come in men’s sizes while the women get the same brown colorway as well as a light grey colorway. The Lunarspider LT+ 3 will be offered in a  blue colorway similar to last seasons offering and a light grey colorway. The 2013 holiday collection is set to launch at select stockists this October.

Some of you may remember me posting the lookbook for the debut collection by Australian-based GAME. Since then I had the chance to check out the pieces in person and I’m more than impressed with the fit, print quality, and the unique personality of the pieces. I styled a few looks using the Slab L/S T-shirt and Extremely Legendary T-shirt from GAME season 1 which can be ordered through their webshop HERE.

In the latest STYLED feature on Oki-Ni PORT Magazine online editor David Hellqvist puts together looks that combine formal tailoring and technical sportswear. As men’s fashion continues to develop in new directions, men are moving past sartorial rules of the past and combining disparate styles to create their own signiture looks. I strongly identify with the idea of ‘techno tailoring’ which David explains below.

Techno Tailoring is all about fusing the best of both worlds. Look at your life; there’s an element of formal strictness, whether you like it or not. You might subscribe to a casual lifestyle but no doubt you’ll need to dress up from time to time. Instead of hiding the crisp formal shirts and well-tailored coats, move them to the front of your wardrobe. Wear them with technologic sportswear. But the key is finding the balance; no-one dresses in stiff, formal and starched collars seven days a week, just as full-on outfits of innovative high performance gear only makes sense on athletes. Neither of them work as one-way versions of your everyday wardrobe. Techno Tailoring is about mixing sporty details with smart looks, about accessorising clever streetwear with well-made and qualitative bits of Savile Row aesthetic.
