Today we present the second part of the Undefeated Spring 2013 Lookbook. The LA brand once again proofs that keeping the aesthetic clean and concentrating on strong branding can never be wrong.

Banksy: Myths & Legends, Paperback

No single living artist has created as many myths, rumours and legends as Banksy. In his home town of Bristol, almost everyone seems to have a Banksy story. Many of the tales in this book are from Bristol, some are from further afield. What they share is that they are all told with the wide eyed wonder which Banksy inspires. Compiled between 2009 and 2011, some of these stories are quite old and have been told so many times they have become the stuff of legend, while others are more questionable and can best be described as myths. Some are laugh out loud bollocks and others are simply gossip. You be the judge.

Skywalker Vitaly Raskalov Climbs Egypt's Great Pyramid Of Giza, Has Photographic Evidence (PHOTOS)

Vitaly Raskalov is no stranger to running into trouble with the law.
After all, the Russian skywalker has already been detained by police at least once before after he was caught climbing the 1,000-foot-high Russky Island Bridge. However, in his latest escapade, Raskalov managed to avoid a run-in with the authorities -- at least for now.
Climbing to the top of Egypt's Great Pyramid of Giza, Raskalov and his team captured some truly spectacular aerial photos.

The Great Pyramid of Giza and several other tombs on the plateau near Cairo were reopened to the public in October following a restoration project, yet climbing the outside of the pyramid is still considered illegal under any circumstance.
The law prohibiting tourists from scaling the walls dates from 1951 but was rarely enforced until decades later, following a slew of accidental deaths, according to an archived article in the Bangor Daily News.
Raskalov explained in a post on LiveJournal, that he and his crew waited until visitor hours were over to begin their ascent, making sure to avoid the view of security guards on their way up and down the pyramid.
The Great Pyramid of Giza, the largest of Egypt's ancient pyramids, originally stood 481.4 feet tall and took nearly 30 years to construct. But throughout the centuries, the massive structure has lost some of its limestone, and its height has reduced to about 450 feet.

“Fire Red Nubuck” Air Jordan 4 Retro

The “Fire Red Nubuck” Air Jordan 4 is shaping up to be a crazy release, and seemingly each day we get more info and pics on the brand new colorway. The Nubuck upper is a great canvas for all red, as it gives off a nice look thanks to that suede-ish appeal, but also offers enhanced durability, something the latest retros aren’t known for. Getting a look at sneakers in a natural setting is a great way to see the finer details of the shoe and how they’re are going to look on your feet, and thankfully Sneakers Addict was able to get some candid shots of the highly anticipated set. Check out the gallery and let us know if the hype on these is real.

Microsoft acknowledges Windows Blue, announces next Build conference

Company reveals more about "Blue," sets Build conference for June.

Microsoft finally has come clean about its "Blue" code name for upcoming Windows tech, while also announcing its next Build Conference.
Microsoft is "working ... on plans to advance our devices and services, a set of plans referred to internally as Blue," the company said in The Official Microsoft Blog today.
Microsoft quickly qualified this by saying that the "chances of products being named thusly are slim to none."
These plans are expected to manifest as improvements and refinements to Windows in a variety of devices, ranging from phones to tablets to servers.
In Windows 8, that may include changes in personalization (appearance of Metro interface), desktop-style multitasking (tile size, placement), ease of use (easier access to Control Panel), sound recording, a new version of Internet Explorer -- and even simple tweaks, like how Windows 8 is shut down.
The Blog also reiterated a big change in Microsoft's strategy, which the author Frank Shaw describes as "a fundamental shift in our business from a software company to a devices and services company."
Redmond also announced the the next Build conference. Build 2013 is slated for June 26-28 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, Calif., Microsoft said.
Not surprisingly, Build will be about "what's next for Windows," including Windows Server, Windows Azure, and Visual Studio.

2014 Range Rover Sport

The all-new 2014 Range Rover Sport made its world debut today in New York City. It will be the “fastest, most agile and responsive” Land Rover ever. The new Range Rover Sport delivers “exceptional on-road dynamics” with genuine Land Rover all-terrain capability. The Range Rover Sport presents a muscular exterior, luxurious interior, and the flexibility provided by the option of 5+2 third row seating for occasional use.
Featuring Land Rover’s breakthrough suspension design and innovative dynamic chassis technologies, the Range Rover Sport features an all-new aluminum unibody architecture to achieve a weight savings of approximately 800lbs.
The 2014 Range Rover Sport is just 191-inches long, shorter than many mid-sized sedans, and is just 2.5-inches longer than its predecessor. A wheelbase that’s longer by 7-inches yields greater room and improved access for rear passengers. For comparison, it is 5.9-inches shorter, 2.17-inches lower, and weighs about 100lbs. less than the new 2013 Range Rover.
The 510hp 5-liter V8 supercharged engine offers a 0-60 mph time of 5.0 seconds (0.9 seconds faster than the previous model). The 340hp supercharged V6 Range Rover Sport is quicker than the previous model with its 375hp 5-liter V8, achieving the dash from 0-60 mph in 6.9 seconds, a reduction of 0.3 seconds.

Wild For The Night x A$AP ROCKY

10.Deep 2013 Spring Delivery 2 Lookbook

Streetwear player 10.Deep presents the second delivery of their Spring 2013 goods in the form of a new lookbook. Consistent with the last installment, this visual presentation frames the collection outside of the studio, instead letting it roam “Into The Wild,” as the lookbook is aptly named. The creative use of animal and military-inspired prints are carried over, featuring distorted and gradient snakeskin and camouflage across sweatshirts, hats and shorts. However bold though, the collection is balanced with clean, athletic pieces such as polo shirts and baseball jerseys. Flattering silhouettes across the board make for an attractive 10.Deep spring delivery, available in the coming weeks at select retailers and online.

1,000 Door Building in South Korea

South Korean artist and designer Choi Jeong-Hwa used 1,000 old doors to create an unusual ten-storey door building in South Korea.
This colorful  public art installation titled “Doors” was built in Soeul back in 2009 and I’m pretty sure it holds the record for the most doors in a single building. The building looks really cool, however I would be scared navigating inside it – one wrong door and you’re flying.
“In 1989. I couldn’t really draw so I didn’t think I could become a painter, but I really liked walking. So I used to walk between streets and narrow alleys and discover garbage piles and construction sites. I realized that “normal” people built and created things better than artists or professionals. Plus, what they were making was more natural. I decided against becoming an artist and decided instead to be an ordinary person who thinks like an artist”,  said Choi in his interview to The Creators Project.
