This editorial was the result of a collaborative effort between Third Looks and EYES & SINS. As I’ve previously noted, EYES & SINS is a brand which relies on a potent graphical narrative with each collection (also reflected in every pixel of their web presence – from the interactive website to promotional animated shorts on social media).
Billy Fischer pieced together these moving images from various EYES & SINS pieces modeled over a contrasting projection of visuals from past DWMS events (by Note PTP) to further delineate the brand’s graphical cyber-militaria design approach.

Third Looks teams up with PTP (Purple Tape Pedigree) for our second collaborative effort. On the heels of the TLxPTP ‘Pill’ Hood comes the more reverse weave goodness in the form of the new ‘Wifey’ hoody. Taking inspiration from the one and only Kiko Mizuahara; actress, model and dream wifey for countless humans on this planet.
The crewnecks are printed on heavyweight reverse weave Champion® sweatshirts and also feature subtle logo details on the sleeve and back. Profess your love for Kiko and all that’s good in the universe. Head over to PTP shop to secure one before they sell out for good.

Im exited to present another mix in the series, this time from Deejay Ruckert founder of classical trax and the label Paradise rhythm. Not only is he an excellent arbiter of new electronic music, he’s a skilled selector in his own right putting together this electric 90 minute mix for you guys. The mix goes in many different directions but maintains it’s progressive hard hitting DNA throughout. In Rueckert’s own words he describes the mix below.
I wanted to make a mix that represents raw club music, hence the opening. All the music in the mix is pushing forward the sound of grime and club. Make sure you lookout out for releases from my label, Paradise Rhythm as well as my new curated mix series, Mutations.
Thanks your friend…Deejay Rueckert
This Saturday DWMS4 hits Palisades in Bushwick. Those who have been to past events know to expect an awesome crowd and high quality audio and visual output all night. Included in the lineup is PTP’s own Celestial Trax (who dropped the previously covered “Verticals” track) making his first proper on-stage debut in the US. Jubilee (Mixpak) and Fiinesse (Thread/Cartel Music) will be laying down club rhythms while Portland’s own SPF666 (Club Chemtrail) and MikeQ (Fade To Mind/Qween Beat) are combining forces for very rare back to back set. Word has also surfaced that there will be a surprise, special guest joining from across the pond. If you’re in New York and a fan of underground electronic music, you should know that this is not to be missed.

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).
