10denza | Chris Lanter 

For a sneak peek into the lifestyle CWE boutique 10denza, one need not look further than the owner himself. Chris Lanter, one of ALIVE Magazine’s Men of Style in 2014, is the spitting image of “the Denz’s” customer: fashion-forward, edgy, pulled-together and fun. Lanter’s collection of men’s and women’s merchandise is rivaled only by the envious selection of lifestyle items—from books to electronics—and highlighted by a perfectly mixed soundtrack that gets you in the groove.
