English label Hentsch Man delivers its latest goods for Fall/Winter 2014 courtesy of a new lookbook. The brand, which thus far has drawn major influence from the tropical isles, here takes a turn towards darker, more mature aesthetics while striving to maintain its ethos.

Classics such as the plaid peacoat, the color-blocked knit sweater or the Sunday sweat-suit are all aptly represented here, complimented by Hentsch Man's resilient use of blues and greys to create a range of everyday wearables.

Following its official revealing at the Moscow Motor Show, here's our very first look at the Chevy Niva Concept. For those unaware of the Niva's unique history, this 4WD mini-SUV was originally introduced as the Lada Niva or VAZ-2121 by Russian automaker AvtoVAZ in the late '70s. In 1998, Chevrolet collaborated with AvtoVAZ to create its own version of the off-road vehicle suitable for North American winters. Getting back to its tough-guy routes however, this concept features a bevy of all-terrain upgrades, including rugged BF Goodrich tires, a winch, a snorkel, under-body cladding, tow hooks, integrated lamp guards, auxiliary lighting, a roof rack, signature Chevy details and a rear end that look rather Benz-ish. Be on the lookout for the Chevy Niva to hit showroom floors as soon as 2016.
