Adidas × Ivy Park

By Armon Hayes × Vaughn Lowery

“These barriers are not going to stop me,” is the opening line of the latest #Adidas×IVYPARK campaign.

The highly anticipated collaboration with Beyoncé and ADIDAS made the world stop this past weekend. Like her music, the lifestyle brand is inclusive, evoking strength and identity. Gender fluid with neutral color pallets for effortless layering during the time of year. On trend. It’s aesthetically pleasing athleisure with the intended functionality backed by the workmanship of an apparel powerhouse.

The collection includes footwear which will entice any sneakerhead. Four sleek vibrant designs starting at $99 coupled with accessories and branded grillz.

In activation of the release, this week the Beyhive sent orange care packages to various celebrities: Megan Thee StallionReese WitherspoonCiaraCardi B and Diplo. Rolling racks, trunks and boxes were chosen by the superstar herself with ‘love and respect.’

360 MAGAZINE teammates rocked the unisex cargo sweat ($85) paired with matching sweatshirt. The Nite Jogger sneakers ($159) were enunciated with a branded key chain.

And, if you were one of the lucky handpicked few, you received a luggage tag alongside of an inserted note from the Queen Bey herself.

With many of the items being SOLD OUT within hours of its online discharge, this launch is sure to be one of the most successful drops in both brand’s histories. Definitely a strong departure from Topshop (originally a partnership with British billionaire Sir Philip Nigel Ross Green, she’s now the sole owner).

They usually come with a thin, comfortable leather strap. Normally they have no velcro or rubber strap component as it’s a must for every woman’s daily wardrobe set.

Jewelry Watches

They are the most critical. It takes months to years fabricate such timepieces. These are made by a master craftsman and are usually made with precious stones and materials. The stones are finely tuned and matched for a very clean and unpretentious look. They are considered the most expensive in the wrist watche category.

Attractive looking women’s watches

Great looking women’s wrist watches have undergone an evolution from pendant styling to wrist watch types. Whatever your personality type, you can be sure to find something that is right for you. It’s just as important that you wear something that makes you look and feel comfortable.

3 Pro Tips to Master Your Holiday-Season Fashion

The holiday season is in full swing, which means you’ll need the perfect outfit for the endless number of occasions on your calendar. From holiday work parties to get-togethers with family and friends, you’ll be diving deep in your wardrobe if you want to avoid wearing the same outfits over and over again during the next few weeks.

To keep your style fresh and your outfits chic, here are three pro tips to help you master your holiday season fashion.

1. Invest in Quality Outerwear

Unless you’re lucky enough to live in a region with warm winter weather, you’ll likely be bundling up every time you go outside this holiday season. This means the cute outfit you spent hours putting together will inevitably be covered up by your bulky coat. If you’re headed to a party, this isn’t a big deal, as you’ll likely shed it as soon as you make your entrance.

But if you have an outdoor date to see Christmas lights or are going out for dinner and drinks and need to be able to get from one place to the next without freezing, you might be wearing that coat a bit longer. In that case, it becomes just as much a part of your holiday outfit as your dress or favorite skinnies.

To keep your coat from ruining your holiday look, invest in some quality outerwear. A black wool coat or sleek khaki trench will help keep you looking winter chic without sacrificing warmth. Plus, these styles are classic enough that you won’t need to worry about them going out of style from one season to the next. 

If you live in an area that experiences below freezing temperatures this time of year, a warm, puffy down-filled coat is another good choice. Indeed, it will provide you with a little extra warmth, as well as help you stay trendy this holiday season.

2. Dress Up Your Year-Round Staples

The holiday season and all its parties, glitz and glamour lasts less than three weeks from start to finish, give or take a week if you start celebrating before Thanksgiving. But if you’re buying new holiday outfits every year, only to stop wearing them after Christmas, you’re wasting your shopping budget on items that are useless for more than 11 months of the year.

Rather than starting from scratch for your holiday outfits, look in your closet for items you can dress up for your next party or date. For instance, your favorite little black dress can easily become holiday ready with the addition of a colorful scarf, glittery jewelry or a pair of red or green tights. By only buying a few accessories, you can save your shopping budget for items you can enjoy year round, like a new little black dress.

3. Layer on an Oversized Sweater

While you’re shopping for something new, sweaters are another good choice. The right one can be dressed up or down, and you’ll no doubt stay warm all season. When in doubt, layering an oversized sweater over a dress, skirt or leggings is an easy way to look chic and stay warm this holiday season. Whether it’s tossed over a fitted black dress or a flowy midi skirt, the result is effortless polish. Big, bulky sweaters of all shapes, colors and textures are in right now, so go with what you like. 

Mastering Your Holiday Style

Whether you’re prepping for a holiday party or a low-key Christmas with family, these pro tips can help you look chic and stylish all season long!

Chic and Unique: How to Wear a Leather Jacket and Add Your Own Flare to It

Leather jackets are timeless. So, it can be hard to wear them in your own way. Here’s how to wear a leather jacket and let your personal style shine through.

In all the annals of style history, you would be hard-pressed to come up with a more iconic single item than the leather jacket. From the battlefront to the home front, the fashion elite to the rebels, and transcending time and nationalities, the leather jacket pops up everywhere.

In fact, it’s such a ubiquitous piece that you’d be equally hard-pressed to figure out how to wear a leather jacket while making the look your own.

Fortunately, a good leather jacket can be as versatile as it is timeless. It’s all just a matter of matching the statement that you want to make with the right style.

Leather Jacket Styles

Leather jackets as we know them have been around for more than a hundred years. In that length of time, numerous styles have come about, each of which comes with its own history and carries its own connotations.

You want to make the leather look your own. But in order to do that, you need to pick the right style to start with.

The Classic

The classic leather jacket is the most understated of the bunch. With minimal frills, the most important thing here is to find one that fits properly as the way it sits on your body is everything.

The classic is the most conservative option, and therefore the most flexible. It is equally at home in the streets as it is in the office. But it’s also the least ambitious and doesn’t have the same potential as other options.
It’s safe and reliable if a bit basic.

The Biker Jacket

The choice of rebels and iconoclasts everywhere, from Marlon Brando in The Wild One to the rough look of the Ramones.

As the name implies, these were the jacket of choice for early motorcycle enthusiasts. Their robust construction is excellent for shielding a rider from the wind, and provide some protection from road rash in the event of a crash. In fact, they’re still popular with riders of both motorcycles and dirt bikes for those very reasons.

But whether you ride or not, they’re still an iconic look, if a bit limited. They make for excellent streetwear but are not the most appropriate in business or formal settings. At best you’ll look ill-dressed, and at worst out-of-touch.

For that reason, they’re best reserved for environments where you can let your hair down and be yourself.

Flight and Bomber Jackets

These could technically be considered distinct styles, but as one came from the other, it felt appropriate to group them together.

Despite leather jackets being associated with motorcycling, they actually trace their existence back to the early days of aviation, though they served much the same purpose. Early airplanes didn’t have enclosed cockpits, so you can imagine the kind of cold and wind that pilots would have had to deal with.

Flight and bomber jackets come in a variety of cuts and styles. Many come with sheer lining, a holdover from when their function was to keep pilots from freezing in their cockpits. For this reason, they make excellent winter wear.

But there is a variety of lighter options that will serve you well throughout the fall and springtime. In any case, this is a classic style that is acceptable to wear in most situations. Depending on what you wear it with, it can be strictly casual or used to add some personality to your office wardrobe.

The Racer Jacket

Though not strictly European, I tend to consider these the overseas cousin of the American biker jacket. After all, they have much the same origin.

Recreational motorcycling really took off in the years after World War II, with young bikers both stateside and abroad finding the need for a jacket that was heavy enough to withstand the elements.

In contrast to the more elaborate biker jacket, though, the racer jacket is comparatively slim an minimalist. It is more fashionable in general and doesn’t carry the same rough and tumble connotations as its cousin.

For that reason, it is a very versatile piece and an excellent choice for someone who wants to make a statement but still look sophisticated at the same time.

How to Wear a Leather Jacket as Part of a Style Statement

When wearing a leather jacket, you really want it to be the core of your outfit. The jacket should do the talking, therefore, the rest of your look should be understated. However, understated doesn’t mean irrelevant.

The most important decision at this stage is if the look you’re going for is having you dress up or dress down. Are you going for a raw iconoclast vibe or is something smart to impress at the office?

With that in mind, you can start making style choices that complement the jacket you’ve chosen. For example, you might pair a biker jacket with dark, distressed denim, a blank shirt, and either high tops or some classic Doc Martens to create a grunge look.

On the other end of the spectrum, you can use a sportier leather jacket to add a little bit of style to your regular business casual. Just do a basic white shirt and tie, some grey slacks, then throw the jacket on top. Get a matching pair of Oxfords to complete a simple but sophisticated look.

Those are just some basic suggestions, but your imagination is really the only limitation here. Just remember to make choices that complement the statement your jacket makes, rather than distract from it.

A Style Essential That’s Not Going Anywhere

Leather jackets as we would recognize them first popped up around the turn of the last century. In that time they have cemented their place as a cornerstone piece in wardrobes around the world. As such, learning how to wear a leather jacket with style and tact is mandatory.

Fortunately, there is a look for practically everyone. From barroom rebel to boardroom smart, the right leather jacket can integrate itself into any environment while setting you apart from the crowd.

And in order to make sure that you stay on the cutting edge, always remember to keep up with 360 for all the latest on style, culture, and living on the edge.

The Melody Ehsani flagship store in Los Angeles hosted an intimate Q&A with director Melina Matsoukas, hosted by Melody Ehsani and special guests. The ME. Shop will be selling limited edition Queen & Slim merchandise while supplies last. 

Starring Oscar® nominee Daniel Kaluuya (Get Out), Queen & Slim is a powerful, consciousness-raising love story that confronts the staggering human toll of racism and the life-shattering price of violence. The film, from GRAMMY®-winning director Melina Matsoukas and Emmy®-winning writer Lena Waithe, is in theaters now.
The music in the film serves as an additional voice and showcases the range of talent across Black artists with a compelling blend of genres. The 16-song soundtrack, which was nominated for a Hollywood Music In Media AwardTM, features new tracks by Ms. Lauryn Hill, Lil Baby, Vince Staples featuring 6lack X Mereba, Tiana Major 9 & EARTHGANG, Coast Contra featuring BJ The Chicago Kid and Syd, plus classic songs by Roy Ayers, Bilal, Mike Jones and others. Blood Orange composed the film’s score and is featured on the soundtrack.

Motown Records President Ethiopia Habtemariam, Waithe and Matsoukas served as executive soundtrack producers. AP said, “Together they’re like the perfect aux-cord DJs. They hit play, and they don’t miss…” The Atlantic noted, “The Best Part of Queen & Slim Is the Soundtrack…Music is woven throughout with an impressive ear for black American artists’ complex relationships to the country they inhabit, and to other black people.” Refinery 29 praised it as “a high-octane ride with a tender heart – just like the movie it’s made for.” Variety hailed the album as “a bound-to-be-legendary hip-hop soundtrack.”

Essence called the first single, “Collide,” by Tiana Major9 & EARTHGANG, “the perfect introduction to an album that includes incredible names.” Produced by Benny Cassette (Kanye West, John Legend), the track was the #1 Most Added song at Urban AC Radio, topped Spotify’s The Newness playlist and has amassed over three million combined global streams. Watch Tiana Major9 & EARTHGANG performing “Collide” at the Soul Train ’19 Awards HERE.

NYLON predicted that “Ride or Die” from Megan Thee Stallion x VickeeLo “will be bumping in the club for months.” Pitchfork praised Vince Staples’ “Yo Love” feat. 6lack & Mereba as “a charming swerve from Staples that’s only further proof of the rapper’s chameleonic talents.” Rolling Stone said, “‘Guarding the Gates’…is an immersive and sprawling ballad…[Ms. Lauryn] Hill delivers a mesmerizing vocal performance.”
While on a forgettable first date together in Ohio, a black man (Kaluuya) and a black woman (Jodie Turner-Smith), are pulled over for a minor traffic infraction. The situation escalates, with sudden and tragic results, when the man kills the police officer in self-defense. Terrified and in fear for their lives, the man, a retail employee, and the woman, a criminal defense lawyer, are forced to go on the run. But the incident is captured on video and goes viral, and the couple unwittingly become a symbol of trauma, terror, grief and pain for people across the country.
As they drive, these two unlikely fugitives will discover themselves and each other in the most dire and desperate of circumstances and will forge a deep and powerful love that will reveal their shared humanity and shape the rest of their lives.

Waithe wrote the screenplay for Queen & Slim from a story by herself and bestselling author James Frey (A Million Little Pieces, Katerina). The film is produced by Frey, Waithe, Matsoukas, Michelle Knudsen, Andrew Coles, Brad Weston and Pamela Abdy. The executive producers are Pamela Hirsch, Kaluuya, Aaron L. Gilbert and Jason Cloth. Universal Pictures and Makeready present Queen & Slim in association with 3BlackDot and Bron Creative, a Makeready/De La Revolución Films/Hillman Grad/3BlackDot production.
