1More Speakers

1More shakes up the portable speaker market with bundled units.‘ – 360 MAGAZINE

By Vaughn Lowery


If you are in the marketplace for a portable Bluetooth speaker, then 1More is your choice. With impeccable sound quality and the ability to hang them around your student residence or apartment, this speaker system is the bang for your buck. You can purchase one speaker for $99 or 2 for $149.

If you listen to songs with heavy bass, then look no farther. The bundled, packaged audio system at high levels will last for approximately 4 to 6 hours before having to recharge. It’s like having a Bose and JBL Bluetooth system combined. Each loudspeaker has a tweeter and a subwoofer so when you pair the two, the sound quality is reminiscent of a small home theater, especially if you hang them diagonally apart with one being higher than the other.

Unquestionably one of the best in the industry, they store easily in small bags when you travel. Great for outdoor BBQs and you can hang on your bike or scooter so you can enjoy music while on a drive to the beach.

They charge relatively fast and are exceedingly durable. We found out this first-hand as the speakers would hop off our glass table or edge of a kitchen countertop. If they descend, the face will sometimes pop off in order to absorb impact. We recommend you hang speaks on a bait/hook or a doorknob to keep them intact.

By far one of the best products for people-on-the-move, attending college and/or residing in small urban spaces.

Reebok × WondaGurl

Reebok announces its partnership with famed music producer, WondaGurl, as part of its ‘It’s A Man’s World’ campaign. WondaGurl is the second female icon the brand has joined forces with for this campaign (after Jazarei-Allen Lord’s custom club c drop). 
  
After breaking into the music scene at 16, Ebony Naomi Oshunrinde, AKA WondaGurl, continues to make a name for herself, working with the likes of Big Sean, Travis Scott, Jay Z, Drake, SZA and Rihanna.
 
A woman who is defying convention every day, WondaGurl embodies the ‘It’s A Man’s World’ message through her relentless drive to break barriers in the music world. Bringing her personal story with ‘It’s A Man’s World’ to life, WondaGurl worked with Reebok to update the classic Aztrek 96 sneaker.

WondaGurl’s Shoe Design, Inspiration & Quotes:

  • On the surface, WondaGurl’s shoe has a simple all-black aesthetic composed of 3M.
  • “I just knew I wanted the shoe black. I’m just simple. I don’t really like to show myself off.”
  • When exposed to a camera flash, the 3M material unveils unique graphics such as audio waves and a USB symbol representing WondaGurl’s wrist tattoo.
  • “The USB is literally the most important thing to me. Literally everything I need goes through the USB.”
  • The shoe features a smiley face patch on the heel as a nod to WondaGurl’s “Enjoy Life” motto.
  • “It’s my motto really. It’s funny how it started. My bro walked out of the studio and I said “alright, enjoy life!” That was literally the first time I ever said it, and I was like “wow, this is kind of cool.””
  • WondaGurl used the inside of the shoe to share the most meaningful aspects of her life.
  • “It’s the things that make me happy: My family. My good friends. Love. Food. The studio. The process. Achieving my goals. Being healthy. Being free.”

Arriving in inclusive men’s and women’s size ranges, the Reebok Classic x WondaGurl ‘It’s A Man’s World’ Aztrek 96 will be available on November 5th at www.Reebok.com/IAMW

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.

Bella Thorne × Glass House Group


Launch Forbidden Flowers
A Consumer Cannabis & CBD Brand

Thorne A Long-Time Cannabis Enthusiast
Embodies the Brand’s Creative, Captivating and Rebellious Free Spirit

Bella Thorne, the artist, actress, musician, best-selling author, director, entrepreneur, and long-time cannabis enthusiast, has joined forces with Glass House Group, one of the fastest-growing, privately held, vertically integrated cannabis and hemp companies in the U.S., through its cultivation division Glass House Farms, to launch Forbidden Flowers, a new cannabis and CBD brand.

The initial launch will officially kick off with a “Forbidden Flowers Tour”’ which will take place over the next seven weeks. Starting on Thursday, October 10, 2019, on the forbiddenxflowers Instagram page at 10:00 a.m. PT, the first retail location, where consumers can purchase products from the following day on Friday, October 11, 2019, will be revealed. Each Thursday at 10:00 a.m. PT following through Thursday, November 21, 2019, the forbiddenxflowers Instagram page will reveal a new retail location in California, where Forbidden Flowers products can be purchased that following Friday. At the end of the seven weeks, additional retail locations across the Golden State California, which will carry Forbidden Flowers, will be announced to fans.

“I have struggled with anxiety for many years, and weed was the one source I found for me to do the most healing. Because of the properties in weed, I have been able to cope with my anxiety in a natural way, rather than my doctors trying to fix it using prescription drugs,“ said Artist Bella Thorne

“It’s been great spending time with Bella and getting to know and understand her as an individual before we created her brand together,” said Glass House Group Chief Marketing Officer Groovy Singh. “Her creative direction on Forbidden Flowers has been absolutely artistic and impressive. We’re proud to join forces with Bella in rolling out this sexy, enticing, high-quality brand that embodies her captivating spirit. The authenticity of what we are bringing to market together with Forbidden Flowers is what Bella handpicked at our grow, consumed and loved. At a time when more people are exploring the power of cannabis, we look forward to introducing a whole new community to the benefits of cannabis and to Bella sharing with her fans and consumers the ways she incorporates cannabis and CBD into her daily lifestyle.”

Bella worked intimately with Glass House Group to create Forbidden Flowers, which aims to give consumers the same rebellious, empowered feeling many consumers get when they consume cannabis. Today, despite the plant being legal in more than two-thirds of the U.S. in some form, cannabis consumers still face a variety of outdated stigmas. Recognizing that more new consumers are eager to become better educated about cannabis and CBD, Thorne plans to share the various ways she incorporates cannabis and CBD into her lifestyle, health and wellness regimes with her more than 21 million social media followers.

“Bella’s entire product line has been cultivated at our sun-powered, state-of-the-art facility in California using the same high-quality control and earth-friendly approach we are known and respected for,” said Glass House Group President Graham Farrar. “We brought some genetics that we grew for Bella for this launch and we are confident that both our long-time and new consumers are going to love these new product lines.”

To fit any mood or setting, Forbidden Flowers’ Indica, Sativa, Hybrid and CBD varieties will be available in stylish: glass jars eighths of flower; pre-roll five-packs; and pre-roll singles. Each Forbidden Flowers variety has been cultivated exclusively at Glass House Farms in Santa Barbara using coastal sun, organic standards and environmental sensibility to deliver uncompromising quality to consumers.

“We set out to engage a whole growing community of consumers embracing the cannabis and CBD market,” said Glass House Group CEO Kyle Kazan. “We’re pleased to have Forbidden Flowers join our growing portfolio of brands and to bring these products to consumers. We also look forward to rolling out more strategic brands and announcing partnerships in the future.”

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.

Introducing G-STEEL

By Vaughn Lowery × Armon Hayes

As of late, we got to tally out the all new G-STEEL while having sips and getting our hair as well as our beards trimmed at Blind Barber in Manhattan’s Alphabet City. The new GSTB100G-2A models feature Bluetooth connectivity and can link up to the G-SHOCK app for accurate time and record keeping. This is one of the best models within their roster as this timepiece can easily travel from the office to the gym as well as the club. This stainless steel accessory possesses a double layer bezel and carbon fiber enclosures which make it sleek yet sporty. In addition to this unit being intuitive with various app settings, it’s water, shock resistant and solar powered. If you’re in the marketplace for a high quality product that’s durable yet upscale then this is the perfect arm candy. At $380 USD, our choice would be the navy with rose gold accents to add a dab of European style and magnificence.

About G-SHOCK
CASIO’s shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe’s dream of ‘creating a watch that never breaks’. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as ‘the toughest watch of all time’. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe’s mantra “never, never give up.” www.gshock.com.
