Que Pasa Shop 2014 Editorial ‘Bubble Chins’




Que Pasa Shop is an online consignment shop that offers up select pieces from brands such as WTAPS, Undercover, Supreme, Engineered Garments, Our Legacy, Junya Watanabe and Comme des Garcons. The site has a tightly curated collection of styles from these brands (amongst many others) at  reasonable prices. If you’re looking to find some older gems, the site is definitely worth a visit. The team there hit me about up about premiering this editorial featuring some of the product that just launched (or will be launched over the next few days).

The editorial was shot on 35mm film and makes use of CCTV video to provide alternate angles of selected looks. I was definitely feeling the presentation and the color palette was vaguely reminiscent of Fallen Angels (one of my favorite flicks). You’ll be able to see the rest of the editorial after the jump as well as Third Look exclusive product photos of upcoming releases.  You can browse Que Pasa Shop’s entire selection of goods on their site and follow them on tumblr and instagram.

Style Profile: Lucas Tyson

The best part about the process of posting these style profiles is getting insight into someones style and getting to know them better as a person through that . I’ve known Lucas for some time now as a friend and it was cool to interview him for the site and hear more about how his style developed.

I hear a lot of my taller friends complain that it’s hard for them to find clothes that fit. At 6’7″ Lucas definitely stands out in a crowd but I admire how he was able to mix pieces from a variety of brands to create a personal aesthetic that represents his personality and interests well. I sat down with the homie to discuss where his style has been and where its going.

When did your interest in clothes start? What kind of stuff were you wearing back then?

I have always had an appreciation for clothes, but the turning point for me was the first time I went to the old Recon store on Eldritch Street. I was finally making enough  money to get some decent clothes. I stumbled across the store when the first Stash AF1 was releasing, and I was blown away by the product. The store manager was kind enough to educate me about the brand and the NY streetwear scene in general. This lead to finding out about Retail Mafia brands that were prevalent in the scene at the time. In particular I wore SSUR, Supreme and Alife tees and hoodies, Evisu jeans, Northface jackets, and Nikes.

Engineered Garments FW13 in The New Order Magazine Vol.9

I haven’t had the chance to check out The New Order Magazine Vol.9 for myself yet, but I did come across this editorial featuring garments from EG Fw13 and some familiar faces from the Nepenthes camp. I really like the casual photo style here and the inclusion of both louder patterned items with more subtle gear. The magazine cover story is a feature on Jun Takahashi so it seems like the latest volume of the publication is well worth purchasing.

Bright greens, blues, and stripes are paired with floral, Hawaiian,  camo and  paisley prints. It’s nice when a lookbook inspires you to re-invent your wardrobe to match the changing seasons.
