We’ll leave the tranquility to Adam and Derek this time around, as they Escaped the City DJB and I drove straight into the heart of as many as we could. With little time and a lot to do, there was an urgent need for speed. Luckily, the BMW had that covered.

As twenty-somethings in the creative industry, we find that there is no structured path, when it comes to securing our dream job. Yes university does help, but it is the first step because we all know when you graduate, the real work begins. Yet somehow we push the fact that it may take until the end of time to achieve our goals to the back of our minds, as we dive into the pool of free labour and uncertainty. But Cherelle Brown, Accessories Designer and Founder of unisex bag line IAMQING gives us hope, showing that we have the power to create our own opportunities instead of waiting for them to approach us which is very much what we believe in. As we style a few looks with her latest collection Cherelle tells us how much family plays a big part in supporting your dream. For she believes that taking risks and remaining humble are a few keys to gaining success.

Being in a new place is not just about seeing new sights, but about embracing and observing the differences occurring around you. I had recent trip to Paris courtesy of Lacoste and, instead of putting my focus on the popular landmarks, I people watched. Read on.
Last week, I was privileged enough to be invited to experience the launch of Nike’s latest addition to the Flyknit lineage, the Flyknit Lunar 2. The launch of the new shoe coincided with the unveiling of the new Nike Brand Experience store, located in the heart of Berlin. Yep that’s right, the kind folks at Nike were kind enough to send us out to the German capital for an exclusive preview of the store followed by an eventful run through the twilight city to trial the new running sneakers. Hop on after the cut.
When it comes to men’s outerwear, a versatile winter jacket is an essential item of the wardrobe.
