10.Deep “Far East” Spring 2014 Collection
10.Deep recently launched their Spring 2014 “Far East” collection aka “Internationally Known”. The lineup digs deep into some of the far eastern cultures, specifically into the Japanese street wear culture. With a variety of patterns including cherry blossoms, Kanji prints, Japanese characters, and other Asian-influenced designs, the new collection is definitely refreshing to see. These prints are offered into a great selection including chinos, jackets, hoodies, baseball caps, and t-shirts giving you plenty of options to pick from. Kicking away from usual Western street wear, it’s a great contrast to see a new cultural influence of street wear being intertwined with a Western brand like 10.Deep. The result is a visually appealing, diverse collection that is sure to make an impact with its uniqueness and originality. I definitely like some of the mixtures they got with the released photos and it’ll be intriguing to see if they bring this new style into a Fall lineup as well. Check out the new release on the 10.Deep web shop.
Moncler, the luxury French brand known for their technical, winter parka style jackets recently unleashed their newest lineup for the upcoming season. The Moncler Grenoble show did not disappoint with the new designs nor the presentation that was given. With 60 different models showcasing the new season in an Indian in the Cupboard style display and nine different opera singers on rotating hydraulic systems, Moncler made sure to make it a memorable performance. While watching the performance words such as..suspenseful..weird..eerie..creative all seem to pop up. Whatever perception you may receive from this performance, it was definitely carried a one of a kind creativity and uniqueness factor that made it stand out on its own from the other luxury brands for New York’s fashion week.
David Černy is a Czech artist from Prague who is well known for his bizarre, controversial, yet very creative art works that swarm Prague and other foreign countries.

That darn travel bug. Once you get the opportunity to travel for an extended period of time or have the ability to travel to numerous locations, you catch the travel bug. Traveling is one of the greatest activities you can spend life doing, there are so many positives factors about it and can influence you in a variety of ways. If you look at the where the world stands today, there are 196 countries that formally recognized. Just think about how many different types of people you can meet out there of different cultures and backgrounds. I have made some of the greatest friends just from either studying abroad or meeting them in some far out country. There are also so many unique cultures and immense histories of these countries that it’s crazy to think how long some of these places have been around. I had the fortunate opportunity of being able to visit 15 different countries my last study abroad in Prague and to witness some of these regions was incredible. You get the feeling that you could see yourself living in some of these places and seeing yourself establishing a residence there for a while…..just some food for thought. You get the travel bug and you will always have it. The following were some of my favorite cities where I greatly enjoyed, are fascinating cities, and places I could see myself posting up at sometime. Any idea where they are?
