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).

Tips on Getting Brooklyn Tattoos You’ll Love

Getting a tattoo is a big decision. Especially if we are talking about your fist one. Because you are stuck with it for life (yes, you can laser remove it later, but that is way more painful and expensive than getting a tattoo), you want to make a good choice. Here are some great tips on getting the tattoo you love when in Brooklyn.

Think it through 

Don’t rush it. I mean it, do not ever make a hasty decision when thinking about getting tattooed. Don’t even think about getting one while drunk, because you might regret it the next day. So, take your time. No one is rushing you; you have all the time in the world to choose your perfect design. And another piece of advice – do not get tattooed while young and never ink your boyfriend’s or girlfriend’s name.

Find the perfect idea

The process of finding the perfect tattoo can be lengthy, especially if you do not have something specific in mind. Some know that they want dragons, others the picture of their favorite pet or flowers. Even then, when you know what you want, you should take your time and do your research. Let’s say, for example, that you want to get a rose. Because there are so many stages of a rose, you should look up all of them and see which one suits you best. Don’t forget about the color – although red is the most frequent choice, you might want to go with pink, yellow or even blue. You will get some good advice on finding the perfect tattoo idea right here: https://tatring.com/getting-tattooed/TattooAdvice-2

The size always matters

The size of the tattoo is also very important and no one can decide that other than you. Think about how big you want it to be. If you do not want it to stand out so much, go for a small one. Do not exaggerate and do not just imagine how it will look like. Find a drawing you like and print it to see how it looks like on your body.

Where do you want it? 

After size, there’s placement. It’s not the same if you get your tattoo on your back (which will be covered most of the time) or your wrist. How visible do you want it to be? Think about other aspects such as your job – in cases such as teaching, for example, tattoos can be frowned upon. Also, the pain level when getting a tattoo varies depending on the area.

Find the perfect Brooklyn tattoo artist for you

Once you’ve decided that you really want a tattoo, you must start searching for a good artist. You do not want it to be made by an artist friend who does not have any experience in the field – no matter how nice of you that would be, remember that your tattoo will stick with you forever. This is why you need the best tattoo artist in town. Even if you are not from Brooklyn, you can travel there to check out tattoo shops like Hand of Glory Tattoo. You need an experienced artist, open to answer all your questions.

This is why you should first think about booking an appointment with the artist. Tell him about your vision and if you have only some sketches, he might help you get the drawing done. He will help you with any questions tattoo and pricing-related, but it is not his job to choose the final variant of the tattoo. That is totally up to you.

Take good care of your new tattoo 

When you leave the tattoo shop, make sure to ask for some tending advice. To heal properly, a tattoo must be taken good care of. You should neither expose the tattoo to sun rays nor bathe while it is still healing. You can also read some more on the subject here. It’s important to know how to attend to your tattoo from the very beginning. If you believe that it is not healing properly, you can revisit your tattoo artist to get his opinion on the matter, but if you follow his advice and take good care, everything should be alright. It’s time to enjoy your new tattoo!

TALKING TRENDS WITH FASHION GURU, KELLY HELFMAN

On February 5th,  leaders and tastemakers in the fashion industry will descend upon Las Vegas for MAGIC, the most comprehensive fashion marketplace in the U.S. Over three days,  fashion insiders will look at what’s to come in apparel, footwear, accessories and even manufacturing.

We caught up with Kelly Helfman to hear about the latest in trends for women. Helfman is President of West Coast Women’s including several shows – WWDMAGIC, PROJECT WOMENS, STITCH and POOL, and has a deep love of all things fashion related. She is absolutely one to watch when it comes to trends!

“At MAGIC, fashionistas will see the most-chic brands and the hottest emerging designers all under one roof. It’s a can’t-miss shopping experience complete with live music, happy hours, networking events, and speakers like Tori Spelling, Delilah and Amelia Hamlin, The Bella Twins, Camila Coelho and more.”

Below are a few highlights Helfman shared with us:

BURNT ORANGE

Orange is still the new black! No doubt about it. It all began in 2018, with rust and a smoky shade of copper, and in 2020 it’s a stunning burnt orange. Not Halloween orange but a tasteful orange take on rust.  Its bold-but-not over the top and its fun while also very chic.  Give it a try in the new decade.  Branch out.

STATEMENT COATS

The statement coat serves a purpose (keep you warm) and should add a dash of style and personality. I say go for a coat that is unforgettable, brave and fun! With a killer statement coat, what’s underneath can be extremely simple. Let the coat do the talking.

SKIRTS WITH SLITS

This can be worn a zillion different ways. From mini to maxi and everything in between – this silhouette is flattering and omnipresent. It can take you from coffee to shopping to date night and still look perfect. Do NOT be afraid of a high dramatic slit. Give it a go.

THE TURTLENECK

Turtlenecks are here with a vengeance. It’s a chic classic that always delivers. Steve Jobs loved a good turtleneck, as did Audrey Hepburn. It’s gone from alternative cool to preppy to chic and now it’s SO 2020!

Tips for selecting a wide array of ladies wrist watches

Women’s wrist watches gained popularity shortly after the infamous pendant watches stopped production. Women liked pendants because they could hang them around their neck or keep them in a dress pocket. In those days, it was women who had more opportunity to display their watches because it also doubled as a fashion accessory. Now they’re tons of beautiful looking women’s wrist watches on the market. They come in many styles, sizes and designs which would make any watch lover ecstatic. Every year, new units are launched, and almost every successful woman is now in full ownership of one. To maintain a solid collection, you must possess at least one of each type. They’re very accessible and readily available at tudor alongside of other designer pieces.

Sports watches

It’s perfect for an assertive woman who holds an active lifestyle. No matter the sport, water-resistant watches also include other advanced features like stopwatch and timer. Sports watches are thinner for women than men. There are a ton of brands which can be found on Amazon.

Clocks and Watches

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.

Neutral watches subjects

If you don’t possess much of a budget, get something that is neutral. That means you shouldn’t purchase something that looks trendy or too formal. Choosing the right timepiece isn’t just about buying something cheaper. It’s about selecting something that’s stylish and fits your personality as well as overall wardrobe.

Her 2015 debut album, BADLANDS, was certified Platinum by the RIAA within one year of its release. 

Halsey claimed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 with 2017’s Platinum-certified hopeless fountain kingdom, which contained such hits as the 2x Platinum “Now or Never” and the 4x Platinum “Bad at Love.”

The success of the 6x Platinum “Without Me” has made Halsey the first and only female artist to have at least three songs chart on the Billboard Hot 100 for 50 weeks each. Rounding out the trio of songs are the 4x Platinum “Eastside,” her collaboration with Benny Blanco and Khalid, and The Chainsmokers’ 11x Platinum “Closer,” which she featured on. “Without Me,” which took Favorite Song, Pop/Rock honors at the American Music Awards, spent two weeks at No. 1 on the Hot 100 in early 2019, marking her first solo single to reach the top spot. It now ranks as the longest-running Billboard Hot 100 top 10 hit by a female artist of this century. She is the first artist to rank at Nos. 1 and 2 simultaneously on Billboard’s Hot 100 Pop Songs radio airplay chart. In March 2019, Halsey became the first artist in history to replace herself at No. 1 twice on the U.S. Pop Songs Airplay chart when “Without Me” returned to No. 1, bumping “Eastside” from the top spot. “Without Me” was the most-played song of 2019 at U.S. radio. She featured on BTS’ Platinum hit, “Boy With Luv,” and, more recently, alongside Future on “Die for Me,” a track from Post Malone’s new album.

Halsey continues to push creative boundaries, expanding her influence and impact beyond music. After making her film debut in the animated 2018 summer movie Teen Titans GO! as the voice of Wonder Woman, she was seen in A Star is Born, starring Bradley Cooper and Lady Gaga. She continues to use her voice to speak up for causes she passionately believes in, including disenfranchised youth, women’s rights, mental health and the LGBTQ community. GLAAD honored her in 2018 as “Outstanding Music Artist.” In 2019, she has won an AMA, the Hal David Starlight Award, presented by the Songwriters Hall of Fame, a VMA and two Teen Choice Awards.

The Mayfair

Music, sports, television and fashion stars rang in the new decade in Las Vegas with a night of dancing and dining at the grand opening of Bellagio Resort & Casino’s glamourous new supper club, The MayfairLeona LewisNina Dobrev, Tanner Novlan and Kayla Ewell, Candice and Joe King, Shaun White and Daniel Bamdad were amongst the revelers. On Friday, Lady Gaga brought 100 of her dancers and friends to The Mayfair for an early New Year’s celebration before the restaurant opened to the public.

Filled with live performances and surprise acts, The Mayfair Supper Club overlooks the Bellagio Fountains and evolves from a swinging prohibition-era jazz club to a late-night dance party that modernizes the Roaring ‘20s for the 2020s.

British singer-songwriter and “X-Factor” star Leona Lewis headed to Vegas to support new hubby Dennis Jauch, who is co-founder of No Ceilings Entertainment, the production powerhouse that produced The Mayfair’s incredible entertainment experience. The duo, who tied the knot in Italy this summer, met in 2010 when Jauch was a dancer on her tour.  Throughout the night, Lewis was glued to performances by the dancers, singers and musicians – many of whom she saw during the casting process – snapping pictures and videos and congratulating Jauch.

“Vampire Diaries” cast Nina Dobrev, Tanner Novlan and wife Kayla Ewell, and Candice (Accola) King reunited at the bash celebrating New Year’s Eve at a Fountain-side table, dining and dancing into the early morning. Olympic champion and snowboarding legend Shaun White, and Accola’s husband and The Fray’s guitarist Joe King, also joined the party. At midnight, the Novlans rang in 2020 with a sweet kiss on The Mayfair’s dance floor.

Lewis, Dobrev, Ewell and King complimented each other’s stunning NYE attire and joined together for celebratory photos, followed by Lewis and Dobrev snapping selfies together.

German model Daniel Bamdad was pulled on stage, blindfolded and fed cream pie as singers and dancers teased him during one of The Mayfair’s boundary-breaking performances that concluded with a hilarious bait and switch that had Bamdad – and guests throughout the restaurant – roaring.

The Mayfair Supper Club is open Sunday through Thursday from 5 p.m. until midnight, and Friday and Saturday from 5 p.m. until 3 a.m. For more information, please visit The Mayfair Supper Club’s website.
