Laura Harrier In Ethical Louis Vuitton Gown

BLACKKKLANSMAN’S LAURA HARRIER WOWS IN BESPOKE ETHICAL LOUIS VUITTON GOWN AT THE 91ST ACADEMY AWARDS® REPRESENTING
SUZY AMIS CAMERON’S RED CARPET GREEN DRESS INITIATIVE


As a partner with Suzy Amis Cameron’s celebrated Red Carpet Green Dress (RCGD) campaign,  BlacKkKlansman lead actress Laura Harrier, wowed the crowd as she arrived to the 91st Academy Awards ® wearing bespoke ethical gown made by Louis Vuitton.

Harrier’s gown was created in the Louis Vuitton’s Paris atelier with an ethical and eco-responsible approach established with long-time verified suppliers. The gown is made of TARONI SPA blue crepe silk certified by the Global Organic Textile Standards (GOTS), which is the worldwide leading textile processing standard for organic fibres, including ecological and social criteria.

The handmade embroidery by Vermont Paris required more than 450 hours of work, and is made of glass beads, Swarovski crystal shards and sequins respecting the STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX®, an international quality label for harmless textiles.

To qualify as a RCGD eco-conscious garment, each piece must either be made from sustainable materials, including organic, recycled or repurposed fibers. Other features include using hand-made detailing or incorporating natural dye processing, with a dedicated focus on minimal negative impact on the environment, and environmentally and socially responsible design.

This year makes the 10th anniversary of RCGD, and in honor of this, the sustainable criteria will be overseen by Good On You, a new partner of RCGD. Good On You is the world’s leading rating system on ethical and sustainable fashion to assist people in making positive shopping choices–all delivered through an accessible app.

Amis Cameron launched RCGD back in 2009, with the intention to create awareness for the importance of sustainable practices in fashion.  Each year, RCGD works with international designers to create sustainable eveningwear to showcase during the Academy Awards®.

Also supporting the sustainable lifestyle are RCGD 2019 partners TESLA, Absolut Elyx and AKA luxury serviced residencies, a vibrant destination featuring exquisite residences designed for stays of 31 days or longer. It is because of their help along with annual contests that financial security can be provided to MUSE School CA.

I-PACE

Jaguar I-Pace: One for the History Books

By Jake Porter × Vaughn Lowery

Possibly no one expected Jaguar to start producing and manufacturing electric vehicles. However, with the rapid onset of consumers searching for an influx of electric powered automobiles, it is not surprising the illustrious British brand provided its very first, all-electric vehicle. Moreover, to the world’s surprise, the antecessor to the Tesla’s Model X, did not emerge from one of the top European mega brands such as BMW, Mercedes-Benz, or Audi. Instead the Whitley, Coventry based Jaguar Land Rover, which has been manufacturing gasoline vehicles for over 80 years, has now effortlessly executed a lavish battery-only SUV.

The brand new Jaguar I-Pace is like no other. Once only rivaled by the Tesla Model X, this fully electric SUV is one of the first of its kind due to its groundbreaking features. First of all, compared to the majority of other electric vehicles on the market today, the I-Pace is powered by a 90 kilowatt hour battery that delivers an exceptional 240 mile range, which could outrun over 90% of the fully electric vehicles on the road today. The one-of-a-kind battery has a superb charge time. A typical kW DC charger can power the vehicle 0%-80% in 85 minutes.

Secondly, the I-Pace’s near silent acceleration and smooth braking are just a couple of the safety features included in the vehicle. The general handling of the vehicle and cornering ability only adds to the value of the car by creating a smooth, highly controlled turn on any surface. In addition, the stiff steering makes the car feel heavy and capable. The wider 22” tires along with all-wheel drive allows the SUV to claw windy roads with ease. The two different breaking modes included in the Default Regenerative Breaking system regenerate energy by efficiently converting available kinetic energy to electricity to charge the battery and extend the range. By selecting the “High” regenerative mode as opposed to the “Low” regenerative mode, it enables an intuitive single pedal driving in many conditions. Hood scoop, flush retractable door handles and back spoiler enhance air flow with a .29 drag coefficient. This feature tops many sports sedans and cars in their stable.

The I-PACE also includes a 3-mode system which alters the driving experience. Specifically, the modes of the vehicle including “Dynamic Mode,” “Comfort Mode” and “Eco Mode” – each of which accurately controls the vehicle in a different way. Dynamic Mode sharpens the throttle and steering responses, while firming up the suspension system for more precise handling. While the Comfort Mode can be used for less-spirited or day-to-day driving, the Eco mode reduces battery load by adjusting the climate of the battery cells with safely heating or cooling while eliminating any other non-essential systems. Each mode, changes the color of the ambient lighting inside the vehicle. These modes are yet another wonderful feature that adds to the pleasant user experience.

Furthermore, the vehicle’s exhilarating driving dynamics with its 394 horsepower and 512 lb-ft torque, produced by its twin electric motors (one at each axle), and its AWD, provide an experience that many drivers will enjoy.

The car is packed with ample road presence and turns heads wherever you go. Its bold, muscular, yet sensual lines make it aesthetically pleasing. This is a true driver’s car.

The Interior

Inside the cabin, the I-Pace comes loaded with an abundance of technology and safety features. Top notch infotainment system alongside of impressive appointments will impress most who step inside. The tempered glass and massive panoramic sunroof create an even more roomier and cozy environment for stargazing. The 825 watt Meridian sound system provides a concert-like experience. Of course, the vehicle also includes interior control panels and digital dials that are all extremely simple and easy to operate.

Comfort and Storage

Beyond it’s impressive all-electric range, its spacious and elegant cabin provide comfort for up to 5 people with ergonomic seating with ample storage in the trunk and, as an added feature, the I-Pace also sports space under the hood as well (aka a frunk). All in all, the total storage rivals that of today’s minivans. This attribute makes the I-Pace great for small families.

Conclusion

The Jaguar I-Pace is one for the history books. The vehicle is extremely difficult to find fault with. It truly has the appearance and spirit of a Jaguar. The comfort and the technology inside the car, as well as its sleek design, create a versatile vehicle perfect for an urban excursion or a local road trip. At $93,000 fully loaded, it’s a force to be reckoned with. This extremely driver intuitive elegantly designed SUV is perfect for a modern family and/or a top level executive.

Land Rover Provides Behind the Scenes Look into Galactic Flight

Land Rover have revealed a special ‘behind the scenes’ peek into
Virgin Galactic’s operation, following its historic flight into space last week.
The space line travelled 51.4 miles above Earth, a feat it wouldn’t have achieved
without undergoing thorough testing and preparation over the last few months. Land
Rover have been a relied-upon figure in the operational process for Virgin Galactic,
with Land Rover’s fleet of vehicles becoming a part of daily life for the space team.
The partnership between Land Rover and Virgin Galactic was for formed back in 2014,
with both sharing visions of pioneering spirit, technological innovation and sense of
adventure. The togetherness illustrates the commitment that both brands share to
iconic design and engineering excellence, and a desire to push the boundaries of travel

Lexus UX, Vaughn Lowery, 360 MAGAZINE, Amazon headquarters, Seattle

LEXUS UX

By Alexandria Baiz × Vaughn Lowery

As of late, 360 Magazine had the opportunity to join Lexus in Seattle for an intimate ride and drive of their wholly-new UX SUV at the newly reimagined luxurious Loews Hotel 1000. This seaport city is home to both tech giants Microsoft and Amazon. With Lexus’s innovative track record for having unparalleled technology within their cabin, it was befitting that they brought us to the home of the Space Needle. Subsequently, this town is known to think outside of the box.

The 2019 Lexus UX takes a step into the future of modern luxury with its two most affordable and compact SUVs – the UX 200 and UX 250h. UX stands for urban crossover (x-over). The UX 200 will be released in December 2018 starting at $32,000 and the UX 250h will be released in January 2019 for around $34,000. Gearing towards an opulent compact car with an exterior design so specific, the UX has a signature three-dimensional shape that makes it different from its siblings.

The front has brow-shaped LED lights with optional ultra-small 3-projector LED units. Across the back of the boot, are an innovative wrap of three-dimensional LED lights which help with stability on the highways – a standout design element on the UX. The structure is built to mold into an everyday vehicle that is stable, perfect for urban use because it’s small and easy to park. We had no problem squeezing to the front of the Bainbridge ferry.

The 18″ 5-spoke aluminum alloy dark gray metallic wheels are proportional to the overall aesthetics of the vehicle. Available in a variety of twelve exterior colors, two of which are exclusive to the UX F Sport – Cadmium Orange and Nori Green. The Cadmium Orange includes a cherry base with yellow lowlights, making it appear vivid and adding tons of depth. Nori Green possesses bright highlights and dark contrast alongside of calm shades, drawing the color brilliant. Both of these colors are newfangled and daring for the Lexus brand.

The F Sport package is available in both the UX 200 and UX 250h model as well as has enhanced features and style which contributes to its name. This option comes in the two colors – Ultra White and Ultrasonic Blue Mica 2.0. The F Sport performance is exceptional, transforming the UX into a bespoke-like designer car with front sports seats, grille design, and jet-black trim.

The concept of UX stems from the versatility and adaptability this vehicle offers. With a seamless interior coupled with the Japanese concept of engawa offers a richer field of vision. Executed with a high-strength structure, placement of sound absorbing and insulating materials throughout, one can enjoy an extremely quiet ride.

The connection between driver and the vehicle is apparent with the “seat-in-control” concept. Entering and exiting is made easy with hip-point bottom cushions. 8-way power driver seats (including lunbar) allows the driver to operate with a comfortable yet natural posture.

All UX models are fabricated to ensure safety while driving. The Pre-Collision System alerts drivers of pedestrians, cyclists and other vehicles with a forward-facing camera and radar system. The LSS+ 2.0 system enhances this with specific light detection for different hours of the day. If the Pre-Collision System detects a high possibility of collision, an audio and visual alert will prompt the driver to take action. If the driver does not break at that point, the system may automatically apply brakes to help mitigate impacts. Dynamic Radar Cruise Control maintains a preset distance and operates between 0 to 110 mph. The Lane Departure Alert is extremely helpful with the Multi-Information Display (MID) the system can use forward-facing cameras to detect colored land marking illustrations. If the driver deviates from a visibly marked lane, the system alerts the driver with an audio and visual alert. In addition, the UX has an Electric Power Steering and Steering Assist. The Road Sign Assist can read a variety of traffic signs and will display them on the vehicle’s MID. Furthermore, Parking Support Brake uses braking control and visual warnings to reduce possible contact with moving objects while parking.

This Lexus is extraordinary with its high definition, intuitive technology, and overall performance. The UX includes a standard 7″ TFT (thin-film-transistor) LCD control panel while the UX F Sport features an 8″ TFT LCD panel design with a movable meter ring. By pressing a switch on the steering wheel, it moves to the right, enlarging the multi-information display. With the Lexus Remote Touch Interface, the 2019 UX feels as familiar as a smartphone. The most impressive tech feature is Amazon’s “Alexa” – which immediately connects you to play music; find directions; open your garage door on a rainy day; lock/unlock from a smart device and amongst other things control the lights in your home. The Lincoln Navigator is the only other vehicle in Northern America which offers Alexa. Moreover, additional driver connectivity features include Apple CarPlay, 4GB Wi-Fi Hotspot, Voice recognition for commands and the SiriusXM. The heads-up display allows drivers to focus more on the road and less on the infotainment unit.

The UX complies with the global trend of efficient gas mileage vehicles – UX 200 at 33 mpg (2.0- liter inline four-cylinder engine, similar to competitors but with less under-hood heat and lower weight for better vehicle balance). The UX 250h at 39 mpg, making it the wave of their next generation of hybrids. With 181 hp, the UX 250h is the fuel-efficient leader with the best-combined mpg of any CUV and/or SUV without a plugin NA.

In short, the Lexus UX 200 and UX 250h is a shoo-in for a ‘xennial’ buyer – a person who grew up in an analog environment and can easily adapt to present-day’s digital society. Just think of all of your friends and family members with a recent graduate degree or higher residing in a metropolis. Most likely they have a high appreciation for the arts and take local trips within their surrounding area with one or more cronies and a small lap dog in tow.

Lakeith Stanfield x Ermenegildo Zenga

Critically acclaimed actor Lakeith Stanfield (Get Out, Atlanta, Come SundaySorry To Bother You, The Girl In The Spider’s Web) wowed viewers when he walked the red carpet at the 90th Annual Academy Awards ® wearing a custom-made sustainable tuxedo made by Ermenegildo Zegna Couture. The look was styled by Michaela Erlanger and worn in support of Suzy Amis Cameron’s Red Carpet Green Dress ethical fashion campaign.

The tuxedo is a navy Tussah Silk, which is sturdier than cultivated silk. Typically gathered in the jungle from cocoons of wild silk moths, the silk is found in a natural state with minimal human intervention and very little invasion to the process. For this reason, unlike a silk yarn produced with greater mechanical interventions, the yarn of Tussah silk features irregularities creating a rich texture, typical of wild, natural breeding.

In 2009, Amis Cameron created Red Carpet Green Dress with the goal of creating awareness for the importance of sustainable practices in fashion.  Each year, Red Carpet Green Dress works with international designers to create sustainable eveningwear to showcase during the Academy Awards®.

To qualify as a Red Carpet Green Dress eco-conscious garment, each piece must either be made from recycled, organic or repurposed materials, use hand-made detailing or incorporate natural dye processing – always with a focus on minimal negative impact on the environment, and environmentally and socially responsible design.

Also supporting the sustainable lifestyle are RCGD 2018 partners, TESLA and Absolut Elyx. Absolut Elyx is a company that is built on the principles of quality, integrity and true craftsmanship. Every copper purchase in the Elyx Boutique, allows the luxury vodka company to provide safe water to more than 100,000 people worldwide with the help of Water for People.

It is because of their help along with annual contests that financial security can be provided to MUSE School CA. MUSE School CA is an environmental non-profit educational organization Amis Cameron founded in Calabasas, Calif. with her sister Rebecca Amis. This assistance enables students to access a transformative educational experience. MUSE School CA ensures smaller class sizes, personalized instruction and learning practices; all set within an inspiring and beautiful campus. Through these key elements, MUSE School CA paves the way in creating leaders of the future.
