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).

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.
