Gwen Stefani – 15th Anniversary

After achieving global success as a performer, songwriter and frontwoman for No Doubt, Gwen Stefani released her first solo album – Love.Angel.Music.Baby. – on November 23, 2004. To celebrate the 15th anniversary of its release, the album has been remastered by five-time GRAMMY® nominee Chris Gehringer (Rihanna, Drake, Lady Gaga) of Sterling Sound. Interscope Records will release Love.Angel.Music.Baby. – 15th Anniversary Edition in digital format on November 22.

Stefani, a three-time GRAMMY® winner, will perform a medley of songs from Love.Angel.Music.Baby. on the Top 11 live results show of “The Voice” airing Tuesday, November 26 at 8pm ET/PT on NBC. She is now in her fourth season as a coach on the Emmy®-winning NBC series. Today, Stefani reissued two items from the original Love.Angel.Music.Baby merchandise collection – a hoodie and a t-shirt, both including a digital download of the remastered album. They are now available at www.shopus.gwenstefani.com

Hailed as “an irresistible party” by Rolling Stone and a “ferocious declaration of independence” by Q Magazine, Love.Angel.Music.Baby. is an exuberant reinvention of the music that influenced Stefani in her youth – a genre-spanning work that encompasses new wave, hip hop, electropop, soul and more. The album has sold more than 15 million units worldwide to date. It is certified Platinum or greater in 10 countries, including 5x Platinum in the U.S. Love.Angel.Music.Baby. was nominated for two GRAMMY Awards®– Album of the Year and Best Pop Vocal Album – and the first three singles also received GRAMMY® nods.

Stefani addresses her decision to record a solo album on the lead-off track and first single, “What You Waiting For?,” which she wrote with Linda Perry. Produced by Nelle Hooper, the song topped Billboard’s Dance Club Songs chart and spent 20 weeks on the Hot 100. “Rich Girl” featuring Eve and produced by Dr. Dre followed. It marked Stefani’s first top 10 entry on the Hot 100 and claimed the No. 1 spot on the UK Official R&B Singles chart.

In six short weeks, The Neptunes-produced “Hollaback Girl” ascended to the top of the Billboard Hot 100, where it spent four consecutive weeks, giving Stefani her first No. 1 single on the chart. “Hollaback Girl” was the first song in history to reach one million digital downloads and topped Billboard’s year end Hot Digital Songs tally in 2005. Views of the accompanying video, directed by Paul Hunter, are nearing 200 million. Driven by the success of “Hollaback Girl,” Love.Angel.Music.Baby. climbed to No. 5 on the Billboard 200 in June 2005. The album spent 78 weeks in total on the tally. Other singles included Cool,” “Luxurious” and “Crash.”

Her follow-up album, 2006’s The Sweet Escape, debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and contained the Hot 100 top 10 smash “Wind It Up.” This Is What The Truth Feels Like, Stefani’s third solo effort, entered the Billboard 200 at No. 1 in 2016 and includes her powerful No. 1 single “Used To Love You.” You Make It Feel Like Christmas, her first holiday collection, was released in 2017. To date, she has sold more than 50 million units worldwide.

Stefani will perform at “Christmas at Rockefeller Center” on December 4, airing live on NBC. She will conclude her two-year Las Vegas headlining residency “Gwen Stefani – Just A Girl” at Zappos Theatre at Planet Hollywood Resort & Casino in May 2020. Tickets are available HERE.

REEBOK × XIMONLEE

DEBUT SUSTAINABLE DMX

AT SHANGHAI FASHION WEEK


New DMX Hydrex sneaker is inspired by scuba boots

The two brands unite to educate consumers on conscious consumption

 
Reebok launched their partnership with Berlin-based Chinese designer XIMONLEE through an iconic new release of sustainable DMX Trail Hydrex silhouettes. Briefly teased at Paris Fashion Week earlier this year, the Reebok x XIMONLEE DMX Trail silhouette took center stage in the designers’ 2020 Spring/Summer Shanghai show.
 
Global sportswear brand Reebok and boundary-pushing designer XIMONLEE are bound by the belief that creating more sustainable offerings creates newness, with the shared goal being to awaken a consciousness in consumption within their consumer. XIMONLEE’s explorative yet commercial collections provide a unique vision on social topics, identities and philosophical quests brought to life through Reebok’s demonstrable footwear expertise.
 
Debuting in three new colorways, the new DMX Trail Hydrex sneaker was inspired by a mix of scuba boots and archetypal Reebok footwear, fusing the core aesthetics of XIMONLEE’s vision with Reebok’s undeniable heritage.
 
A trail-inspired outsole sits atop a functional water boot upper in vibrant colorways of brick red, mint green and purple. Nodding to the rise of outdoor-inspired high-fashion silhouettes, Reebok amplified its all-terrain functionality without sacrificing XIMONLEE’S signature aesthetic.


The silhouette, as featured on the Shanghai Fashion Week runway, will be available for purchase in late 2020 through its official retail launch.

NORDSTROM NYC FLAGSHIP

By Armon Hayes × Vaughn Lowery

Co-President, Pete Nordstrom, along side of corporate partners hosted a tour for retailer’s newly largest single project investment in their history. On Oct 24th, Nordstrom will launch its first flagship in Manhattan since the 1920s. An exclusive onestop shop adjacent to the Nordstrom Men’s store located on West 57th street & Broadway. The seven-level flagship store, designed in collaboration with James Carpenter Design Associates, forms in the base of the ‘tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere.’ With 320,000 square feet, it will embody an experience which is responsive and reflective of its customers. After all, a great design encourages people to stay longer and shop more. And, with 19-foot ceilings, it’s an open canvas for an interchangeable yet flexible floor plan.

The new floor plan allows for discovery, with range to explore and transition through brands freely that they haven’t experienced before. The infrastructure is designed to funnel natural light through transparency with floor to ceiling glass, intertwining the shopping experience to the city’s skyline. The atrium possesses a waveform glass façade which allows for interaction from customers inside and out. Chain-mail veils and lighting installations lend character to the location, reflecting the city’s cultural events as well as major holidays. 

“A rapidly growing younger consumer who’s engaged has emerged,” asserts Pete Nordstrom. Instinctively creating a new culture and how we shop that’s relevant to life experiences. Today one-third of sales are e-commerce, which represents 30% of Nordstrom’s business.

For over 100 years, the retailer has stood the test of time. The climate of brick and mortar for many retailers have shrunk and/or has become nonexistent. Nordstrom understands as their customer evolves, their level of service and retail atmosphere should be elevated as well. Using technology and innovation, the new store’s communication system will allow employees to order beverages and/or garments throughout the location.

In addition, customers will have access to 24/7 buy online & pickup, in-store personal stylists and tailoring while you wait. The Vice President of Creative Projects, Olivia Kim, has fabricated initiatives like Pop-In@ Nordstrom – an exclusive space for emerging designers. Merchandising will include a curated depth of products (clothing, accessories, shoes, beauty, children’s, home etc) across price points.

Lastly, there will be 7 food and beverage options with 4 full-service restaurants, 2 bars and an innovative, gluten-free doughnut stand:

¤ Shoe Bar will feature handcrafted cocktails, speciality coffee drinks and a selection of small plates.

¤ 2 restaurants are in collaboration with Chef Tom Douglas.

¤ 1 restaurant is in collaboration with Chef Ethan Stowell.

For a mega metropolis that’s often explored while on foot, this fashion marquee’s newest residence seems to be long overdue.

Lexus, Costa Rica, 360 MAGAZINE, Vaughn Lowery, RXL

Lexus Milestones

By Flore Chaumont × Vaughn Lowery

Lexus celebrated their 30-year anniversary this past July; and we couldn’t escape it. We were invited on a 3-day lifestyle activation in Costa Rica, testing both their latest vehicles along side of their precursors. Since Lexus is the leading producer of luxury hybrids, their choice of hosting this event in Costa Rica was not arbitrary. Aside from lush landscapes, the island is a place where environmentally driven initiatives and technologies thrive. The country is a leading producer of hydroelectric energy, and conserving their beautiful flora and fauna is one of their top priorities.

1. Accommodation

Our hopes were high and they were remarkably met with our arrival at the magnificent Four Seasons Hotel, located in Liberia, a jewel in the countryside of Costa Rica. The luxurious property, nicely integrated into the surrounding region was mesmerizing. Modern yet rustic decorated rooms spilt out onto the beachfront as we assembled at a welcoming reception. We were treated like loyalty with excellent service, savory bites and of course, great fellowship. With a 181 rooms, fitness center (which rivaled Equinox), day spa (complete with plunge pool, steam room and hot tub) and private beach, many of us were tempted to stay longer within the 1,400 acres of utter bliss. There was so much to explore via a biking excursion or a simple hike into neighboring jungles.

2. History of Lexus

During the conference, we learned about the history of Lexus; and their product line from 1989 to present. With the use of VR, we were teleported in time to when Toyota arrived in the US. In 1984, they launched the Circle F Project with the aim of releasing a luxury car. The challenge was to change America’s perception of the marque. For this project, Chief Engineer Ichiro Suzuki sets aggressive goals which will define the brand’s strategy and excellence down the route. With over 1400 engineers involved and 400 prototypes later, the Lexus LS was born. A sedan unlike any other. The name, originally Alexis, became Lexus, and the logo came to become this symbol of beauty and perfection with a succession of exceptional cars to accompany.

3. Meeting with Executives

We also got the privilege to sit down and shoot the breeze with some of the senior level executives of Lexus. Koichi Suga, General Manager of Lexus Design, explained to us his inspiration for adding the concierge and driver refresh, he maintains, “Our vision is human centered: what the customer wants, while focusing on our distinctive culture and heritage.” Indeed, the driver refreshes function is an imitation of shiatsu massage, and it was also our favorite feature in this newly reintroduced full-size flagship. In a discussion with Koji Sato, Vice President of Lexus International Products & Engineering, we were informed that the brand expects to issue its first EV by 2025. And he gave tongue to what gives the sedan a long-term advantage over SUV models. He states, “I think the sedan is more formal, more stylish, with a low center of gravity that provides a more emotional feel.”

4. Vehicle Drives

After being fascinated with the history of Lexus, we got to take a glimpse of and even test drive a few. The incredible LFA was on display and the RC F Sport (f/ in Men in Black: International) were definitely crowd favorites. We test drove three of their models: the LS 500h; RXL (new RX w/ third row seating) and LC 500h. The LS literally made us feel like a royal family. The sleek design, alongside a more pronounced spindle grill and a ton of driver/passenger amenities made the interior feel like nirvana. The RXL possesses a 4.4 inch longer wheel base than RX, now seats 7 and has been refined to exaggerate masculinity. Lastly, the LC 500h, spotlighted in the critically acclaimed Black Panther, was simply sublime, from its paw-like exterior to the silky ride it offers. The peaceful drive along windy roads near the rain forests was almost mysterious.

5. Adventure

On our final day, we drove to the Diamante Eco Adventure Park which is home to one of the highest zip lines in the world – approximately 80 stories high and 1 mile long from one side to the other. We strapped into the renowned Superman, headfirst while facing forward on our bellies. Within, 45 seconds or less we were tailed and ready to retrieve our rides.

In short, Lexus created an atmosphere which showcased creativity, confidence and courage. Everything was exemplified through their leaders, bold design and humanity. Here’s to another 30 years!!!

SARAH JESSICA PARKER’S NEW WINE “INVIVO X, SJP”

SARAH JESSICA PARKER’S NEW WINE “INVIVO X, SJP” WILL HIT STORES ON SEPTEMBER 18, 2019

The Sauvignon Blanc will be Available Globally & is the First Wine to Launch from her Wine Collection with the New Zealand Winery

Actor, designer and wine lover Sarah Jessica Parker has announced today via Instagram that her new Sauvignon Blanc wine in partnership with the New Zealand-based Invivo & Co will hit stores this fall on September 18th, 2019.

With grapes from Marlborough, New Zealand “Invivo X, Sarah Jessica Parker Sauvignon Blanc” will have a suggested retail price between $18 – $20 and will be immediately available across the U.S. via exclusive national importer Taub Family Selections. At the same time, the wine will also have a global footprint in New Zealand, Australia, Japan, Canada, UK, Ireland andHong Kong.

I have thoroughly enjoyed the collaboration with Rob and Tim from Invivo,” explains Sarah Jessica Parker “Every part of the process from our initial conversations discussing wine styles, to the creative process on the brand and label design and of course, the Sauvignon Blanc blending session; it’s all been one exciting step after another. And a thrilling education in the business of winemaking, but more importantly, the love and passion behind Invivo.

The new Invivo X, Sarah Jessica Parker Sauvignon Blanc is described by Invivo’s co-founder & winemaker Rob Cameron as, “Lifted notes of grapefruit, honeysuckle flower, passionfruit and citrus zest. The palate is expansive and leads with a wall of sweet-scented fruits and a soft, but balanced acid spine.”

Sarah Jessica Parker’s wine was perfected in May when the founders of Invivo, Tim Lightbourne and Rob Cameron, traveled to New York City for a private blending session with Sarah Jessica to finalize the blend and taste of her new Sauvignon Blanc. They brought the latest samples of the 2019 vintage that was harvested in April from different sub-regions of Marlborough – the home of New Zealand’s world-famous Sauvignon Blanc. Over a three-hour session, Sarah Jessica and the Invivo team finalized the proportions from each vineyard to create the exact blending recipe used in the wine.

While I’m new to winemaking, the Invivo fellows generously taught, showed and shared as much of the art and science of their business and hopefully I have absorbed some of their Kiwi confidence,” states Sarah Jessica Parker“I’m so looking forward to releasing my Invivo X, Sarah Jessica Parker Sauvignon Blanc in September and sharing our wine with the world! I feel very fortunate to have this opportunity offered by Rob and Tim.

WATCH A SNEAK PEEK FROM THE SJP BLENDING SESSION HERE: https://vimeo.com/349806095/f0cc736d10

As a passionately creative person, Sarah Jessica Parker has naturally been instrumental in both naming the wine and designing the label. The X and the comma directly after it, is an intentional and personal touch, referencing her signature email and Instagram post signoff: “X, SJ.”   Sarah Jessica also hand-painted the X on the original label and found the teal paint to match the exact shade of one of her favorite satin shoe colorways, “Hamilton”, from her SJP Collection label.

Invivo’s other co-founder Tim Lightbourne adds, “It has been a pleasure working with Sarah Jessica. It’s fantastic how hands-on she’s been with the whole process and she has a great palate too! Within minutes into the blending session, she was picking up subtle differences between the samples. It’s a privilege for us, two old school friends from New Zealand and our winery, to work with her.  We look forward to a long-term partnership.”

In Spring 2020, a Rosé from the South of France will also be added to the Sarah Jessica Parker collection of wines with Invivo and will be a new vintage 2019 blend from the grapes being harvested this September.

This celebrity partnership is not unchartered territory for the growing New Zealand wine brand as Invivo & Co has also launched a successful wine brand with the UK talk show host Graham Norton. His brand debuted in 2014 selling 12,000 bottles in the first year and now today sells 3.5 million bottles globally. They have also recently extended his brand with the launch of Graham’s new pink Gin earlier this year. Invivo & Co looks forward to growing Sarah Jessica Parker’s collection of wine to reflect her personal preferences and love for wine similar to what they have accomplished with Graham Norton.

Invivo X, SJP” received its first review – just days after bottling – and landed a 95point rating from New Zealand wine reviewer Sam Kim at Wine Orbit.  Kim describes the wine saying: “The palate delivers excellent concentration and weight, wonderfully complemented by fine texture and brilliant focus.”

ABOUT SARAH JESSICA PARKER: Sarah Jessica Parker is the star and executive producer of “Divorce,” returning to HBO for a third hit season. In February 2014, she launched “SJP by Sarah Jessica Parker”, a footwear, apparel and accessory label, with partner George Malkemus III. The collection showcases the brand’s theme of colors acting as neutrals and encourages women to take risks and break away from fashion rules they imagine. Parker currently serves as the Vice-Chairman of the board of directors for the New York City ballet. She also served on the President’s Committee on the Arts and the Humanities under the Obama administration. Parker lives with her husband and three children in New York City.

ABOUT INVIVO: Invivo’s mission is to bring people together so great things can happen. Invivo has been described as “New Zealand’s most innovative winery.” Founded in 2008 by school friends Tim Lightbourne and winemaker Rob Cameron, Invivo set out to make great wine without the elitist attitude the industry can be known for, they believe that nothing should stand in the way of a great drink. 11 years later, the formula has been a success, with their wines receiving over 200 international wine show medals, distribution in 16 countries and sales of over 3,500,000 bottles. Invivo has also recently released a Gin brand in partnership with Graham Norton. Invivo has played a role in helping New Zealand become the 3rd largest importer of wine into the US (by value) behind France and Italy. USA is New Zealand’s largest export market for wine with $422 million USD in sales. This is an impressive statistic considering that NZ produces less than 1% of all the world’s wine. www.invivowines.com www.invivoxsjp.com

Printful

When Printful launched its print-on-demand/drop-shipping business in 2013, most competitors were traditional bulk-printing companies that weren’t built for one-off fulfillment of t-shirts and other products. Today, thanks to the e-commerce explosion and a savvy technology-focused business strategy, Printful is the largest company of its kind with three fulfillment centers in the U.S. and headquarters in Riga, Latvia and Charlotte, NC, a fourth that recently opened in Mexico, 500 employees, dozens of product options, and 800,000+ customers around the globe from artists and cause marketers to Twitter-preneurs like WeRateDogs that use merchandise to monetize their ventures.  

 

  • The company was founded by two young Latvians who couldn’t find an acceptable print-on-demand drop-shipping partner for a business they ran selling posters, clothing and other items with motivational quotes for entrepreneurs. 
  • It has doubled revenues every year since inception, fulfilled more than 10 million orders generating over $540 million for customers, and is still self-funded.
  • Features like 14 integrated e-commerce platforms (more than any competitor), API connectivity, and a mockup generator that creates store-ready product images help fuel business.
  • One-third of customers surveyed say their e-commerce storefront is a full-time gig, and three-quarters of the rest say they’re aiming to get there.

Now Booking its First Tour: A Curated Visit to Tuscany in April 2019

Since 1996, DiVine Tours has been providing innovative luxury travel excursions throughout Italy.

Couturista Travel is now booking for its April fashion-focused journey through Tuscany, followed by trips to Miami and Mexico later in the year.

The inaugural trip, entitled Tuscany Couture, includes stays in luxury fashion inspired hotels such as the Ferragamo-owned Gallery Art Hotel, exclusive vineyard tours, and VIP access and discounts at the world’s leading fashion retailers.

The following day will include an intimate inside look into the history of Italian Fashion, then & now, via private tours through the culture rich UNESCO City. Expert guides will then transport guests back to the 18th century via the Pitti Palace Costume Gallery, featuring rich collections that represent the evolution of fashion for didactic purposes.

The historical experiences will also include a visit to the Salvatore Ferragamo Museum. Dedicated to the life and work of the famed Italian shoe designer, the museum contains over 10,000 models of shoes and a variety of exhibits dedicated to the life and work of Ferragamo from the 1920’s until his death in 1960.

In addition to visits to Italy’s top historical fashion destinations and some of the most sophisticated shopping in the world, the Tuscany Couture trip includes visits to local artisan’s workshops, private trunk shows, dining at Florence’s most revered restaurants and guided visits to the iconic sites in historical cities throughout the Tuscan region.

“Tuscany Couture is the ideal vacation framed by the magic and elegance of Florence. Suited for the curious shopper or the fashion-savvy, a group of friends seeking the ultimate getaway, or even the mother-daughter duo looking for a bonding retreat,” said Myriam Angulo, co-founder of Couturista Travel. “There is so much to see in Florence and Chianti besides the traditional visits to see renowned art and wine tastings. Couturista organizers use their personal knowledge and intimate relationships to open the doors to artisan shoemakers, pop-up shops, flagship stores and everything in between. Tuscany Couture is the perfect trip for the inquisitive, divine traveler.”

Tuscany Couture’s $6,999 pp fee includes the complete land program with transportation, deluxe hotel accommodations, English-speaking guides, daily breakfast buffets, welcome and farewell dinners, shopping tours, museum entrances, winery visits, and many more activities for travelers looking to do it all.

With some days planned out and others that allow Couturistas to explore suggested sites on their own, each traveler has the ability to mold their vacation to fit their every want and desire. There are also unique extension options for those who want to extend their stay in Italy with opportunities to spend three additional days in the North or South of Florence.

Following the trip to Tuscany, Couturista Travel will offer innovative programs in the Magic City that is Miami with two distinct themes: Exploration of Art and Curated Shopping; as well as an opportunity to explore and shop Mexico later in the year.
