Krishan (Krish) Narsinghani exemplifies passion and creativity in all facets of his short career. Graduating from Indiana University with a degree in Informatics and concentrations in Business and Marketing, he’s grasped the constant change of the digital space and learned to move quickly in any endeavor.
With a background in the music industry – marketing music artists like 5 Seconds of Summer, James Arthur and the John Coltrane Estate (to name a few), he’s built an incredible raport identifying talent and scaling their careers through social media and digital strategy. Bringing that sense of direction to 360 Magazine, along with the journalism skills groomed over the past several years with the company, strengthens his vision for the brand as the current managing editor.
Marthe Vangman is an entertainment industry noisemaker that has managed talent across several verticals at a global scale. 360 Magazine first spotted Marthe when she built out a music event series with the company Studiotime, where Vangman managed all their musical talent relations and produced the events. The series grew to be known as Studiotime Sessions and was a massive success in Los Angeles featuring iconic studios like The Village. Studiotime founder Michael Williams and Vangman decided to take Studiotime Sessions international, which is where she discovered the gap in talent collaborations between her home country of Scandinavia and the United States.
Shortly after, the trailblazer started working with Invisible Narratives, an entertainment company founded by Adam Goodman and Michael Bay, where she would run the talent projects. Vangman has managed projects with talent such as Deadmau5, Emma Norton, BWA Jack, Tatyana Joseph, Jian Hao Tan, etc. along with the talent for the award winning streaming show “Pride Eve” and assisted with talent for HBO Max’s “Camp Friends”.
Due to her international background, Vangman has been able to get a broad insight into how brands and influencers collaborate in both the US and Scandinavia, and how different the two countries operate business-wise. Sweden, Norway and Denmark, are trend-based countries with small populations. There’s a few core influencers that have a cult following in each region, and they are the ones that start the trends that everyone then follows. In the US, it’s a bit different because influencers usually are not able to influence a whole population, instead they have their niche audiences that follow them because they share the same interest or simply for entertainment.
By understanding the different audiences, Vangman saw an opportunity to start building a bridge between the two worlds, so that influencers and brands could collaborate easier and expand beyond their borders.
Vangman explains, “The benefits for brands to expand in Scandinavia is that you can get acknowledgement really fast if you collaborate with the right influencers, meaning the ones that are highly respected by the main public and the ones that start the trends. And the benefits for brands to expand in the US is that they can target really niche audiences that would become consumers of their brand through the right influencers. This doesn’t only apply to influencers and brands, it also applies to musicians and other creators. For musicians, if you collaborate with the biggest Scandinavian influencers and get them to use your music in their TikTok or vlogs, you can become viral pretty fast.”
Most recently, Marthe also started working with Gustaf Toresson, a Swedish entrepreneur, media profile and board member of Forbes 30 under 30 in Europe. Here she’s helping Gustaf launch a podcast that will feature successful creators and entrepreneurs that share intimate life stories. She will be working with Gustaf to secure talent and manage all guest relations. Gary Vee, Matilda Djerf, Lucy Edwards and ZHC are just a few of the names that will be a part of the podcast series.
As of late, Cassina, a pioneer in Italian furniture and design, revealed a collection designed by Virgil Abloh. At first glance, patrons might not view this selection of building blocks as furniture, but the duality of these crate shaped fixtures says otherwise. The art pieces are meant to adapt to the space around them. Displayed as a simple nightstand or merged together to create a modern bench, the utility of these boxes are dynamic.
Cassina showcased this assortment at their location in West Hollywood. Guests were thrown off by the fitments, but after testing the product, they proved to be pretty snug. Attendees also had the honor of hearing from Cassina’s CEO Luca Fuso who had a lot to say about their vision. Fuso explained how the company and late designer intended for an industrial look suitable for a home or office setting.
Abloh’s inspiration derived from a subwoofer used as a seating arrangement. It represented the interior decor from the community he grew up in. A place where music and comfort were brought together as one.
As per its name, Modular Imagination, the furniture was supposed to depict an ambiguous look where it could be placed off to the side by itself, or act as an additional section. You can purchase this item in all Cassina stores ranging from $2,115 to $3,295 depending on the single or double variations.
Virgil Abloh was an American fashion designer known to be one of the most creative individuals of this generation, and for starting one of the most influential brands titled Off-white. Raised in a small town in Illinois, Abloh had the artistic ability ingrained in him. He learned how to sew from his mother who was a seamstress, and his father taught him about color palettes. After graduating with his degree in architecture, the young artist took up an internship at Fendi alongside rapper Kanye West.
Working with the infamous rapper, Abloh started receiving a lot more attention. In 2018 he founded his luxury fashion house Off-white. This was the first step to his main-stream success. The young creative was collaborating with brands like IKEA, Nike, and much more. In 2018, he was given the crown to take creative direction of the most luxurious brand in the world, Louis Vuitton. It is safe to say he was an inspiration to all age groups, and an imperative for moving fashion forward.

The switchgear is more upscale, sleeker, and softer than previous models. For the first time, the first edition Range Rover has an additional third-row feature that expands the previous linear design, making the interior a show stunner.
Most importantly, short and long-wheel-based designs have a choice of four, five, or seven-seat interiors. The P530 comes with an engine capacity of 4.4 liters with a V8 Twin –Turbo petrol design, automatic transmission of eight-speed, drivetrain equipped with intelligent all-wheel intelligent driveline dynamics, a classic exterior color sunset gold satin, interior trim fitted with perlino semi-aniline leather, and Pirelli-285/40 R23 A/S tires.

Engine includes an intercooler and twin-turbocharged DOHC 32-valve V-8, aluminum block and heads, direct fuel injection engine with a displacement of 268 in3, 4395 cm3, power of 523 hp @ 6000 rpm and Torque: 553 lb-ft @ 1800 rpm.

The recent model’s performance on the road is smooth and delivers seamless wafting, which separates it from the previous models. To top it off, it can blend serene road trip rides with enhanced body control. On the pavement, the P530 will hover over broken pavements, melting large suspension movements and neutralizing small ones to shake down the needle of the chassis briefly. It provides electrified performance with a comprehensive line-up of advanced powertrains that brings new levels of capability to Land Rover‘s flagship SUV and efficiency compared to past fleets.

Notably, the extended Range PHEV uses three driving modes: save mode, EV mode, and hybrid mode. Save mode preserves the battery level to be used later while hybrid mode optimizes energy efficiency between petrol and electric power.

One of the highlights titled Sea Forms while abstract, will have been inspired by the landscape around Hepworth, while living with her artist husband Ben Nicholson (1894-1982), on the Cornish coast.

Live and Breathe the Film Industry: Israeli’s Star Artist Eva Lanska’s take on the Film Industry and NFT Spaces
The NFT space is a haven for art lovers and artists all over the world. Our recent conversation with the Israeli star Eva Lanska provides an intimate understanding of her experience in the NFT space and the film industry. Being an Israeli film director and artist, she sells and promotes her work in the NFT space while also working as a film director in her Tel Aviv studio. Eva claims that film direction and art have been her passions since the age of seven, but it has taken her twenty years to realize her dream. She discusses her struggles as a female director and artist, highlighting the challenges she has faced in the industry. “Art, film, this is what we choose, these are our lives, one day the door will open and we will become who we want to be, and we will take our place,” she encourages women in the industry. Eva reveals that she does not come from an influential family of Hollywood personalities and as such, she has had to work her way into the Hollywood family.
The story behind the exceptional woman reveals the reality in Hollywood. “If you do not come from a famous Hollywood family, you have to work extra hard to get noticed in the industry…because the Hollywood inner circle is a very small, closely knit family,” Eva states. “Before getting noticed, one has to live and breathe Hollywood,” she confesses. We all admire the stunning Israeli artist for navigating the difficult path into Hollywood’s inner circle. “Talent is simply not enough, knowledge is not enough; you must become one with the community,” Eva says, possibly the most candid advice she has for people trying to make it in the entertainment industry.
The conversation quickly shifts to the NFT space and what it means to artists around the world. Eva describes the NFT space as a platform that offers artists the freedom of expression. At first, she finds it intimidating, particularly as a woman new to the platform. It becomes even more intimidating for her when she meets award-winning scholars, but she overcomes her fears and eventually establishes a reputable name in the industry. Eva also expresses her dissatisfaction with the platform’s marginalization of women, claiming that their projects often take longer to be approved or funded. “We can only go forward, never look back, and we are gonna go till we achieve,” she encourages women in the industry. “Stopping, giving up is not an option,” she adds, “we have to keep going and moving forward.”
Miami Art Week is a celebration and appreciation of the world’s best art collections, it is no surprise that Eva Lanska’s collection is featured. The NFT exhibition will display some of Eva’s large-scale sculptures and paintings, along with Michael Benisty, WhIsBe, Noah Becker, Lauren Baker, Maxim Zhestkov, and more, at the Bagatelle Ritz-Carlton Hotel. Photographic works from Lanska’s Gematria collection and The Existential Choice are featured exclusively at the NFT event. For the opening event, Eva collaborated with SmartMedia to produce a special limited edition (1000) NFT from her Gematria series called Gematria 596. She proudly describes this piece as a symbol of purity. Eva’s art is celebrated for the messages it conveys, she has previously used art to address gender equality and societal injustices. This event serves as a reminder of the powerful woman Eva Lanska is and how her art will leave a lasting impression on the world.

THE MASTER OF THE MYSTIC ARTS RETURNS TO RESHAPE YOUR REALITY IN NEW DOCTOR STRANGE SERIES!
Jed MacKay and Pasqual Ferry launch a new DOCTOR STRANGE ongoing series this March
Jed MacKay’s acclaimed work on the Doctor Strange mythos has captivated readers over the past year, and this March, a thrilling new chapter begins. Spinning out of the character’s terrifying demise in Death of Doctor Strange and Clea’s time as Sorcerer Supreme in Strange comes an all-new ongoing series for Stephen Strange where he’ll resume his duties as Marvel’s Master of the Mystic Arts!
This time around, MacKay will be joined by superstar artist Pasqual Ferry, known for his stylish work on recent titles like Namor: Conquered Shores and Spider-Man: Spider’s Shadow. These two talents have devised a grand plan for Doctor Strange centered around a shocking mystery that strikes at the very heart of Strange’s legacy and purpose. The journey that follows will harken back to the iconic hero’s psychedelic and otherworldly storytelling, taking readers to places only Strange would dare to go and introducing enemies only he could hope to defeat, including a brand-new threat that Strange shares a personal connection with. In honor of this new saga, Doctor Strange will be donning a revamped costume designed by the legendary Alex Ross, who will also be gracing the series with breathtaking covers!
Stephen Strange is back! Reunited with Clea and Wong, it’s back to business as usual for the Sorcerer Supreme. Have your children fallen into a deep nightmarish slumber? Are demonic refugees invading your home? Is your husband possessed by a satanic entity? Then call Doctor Strange! But when someone else begins to issue their own dark justice on Strange’s mightiest foes, Strange embarks on an interdimensional search for answers, only to discover the culprit may be closer to home than he thinks…
“After Death of Doctor Strange, after Strange, we open the next act in our ongoing saga of the Sorcerer Supreme in DOCTOR STRANGE #1!” MacKay proclaimed. “It’s been really exciting to have the opportunity to not only continue exploring the magical side of the Marvel Universe with the inhabitants of 177A Bleecker Street, but to follow the lives of the Stranges as the last year and a half has put them through the wringer. Pasqual has been putting together a truly magical book, and I’m super psyched to show people what’s in store for Stephen and Clea Strange- and of course, we won’t be giving them any time off after recent events…”
“When I started working for Marvel, there were three comics I had always wanted to draw:Fantastic Four, Spider-Man, and Doctor Strange,” Ferry said. “Why Doctor Strange? Because his stories include all the elements I love as an artist—the fantasy, science fiction, and imagination. Above all, the fact that I could look at Steve Ditko’s work as a reference really motivates me! When he drew Doctor Strange, all the utopian and imaginary sceneries were incredible. So this is a very special moment in my career, and I’m looking forward to seeing where the character is going to take us with this new narrative. I know a lot of artists, including myself, consider Doctor Strange a challenge, like there is a need to add something new to the character because it offers you that possibility.

Lectra announces the acquisition of the majority of the capital of TextileGenesis
Lectra extends its software offer to material traceability and reinforces its position in Industry 4.0
Lectra announces the signature of an agreement to acquire 51% of the capital and voting rights of the Dutch company TextileGenesis. As a major player in the fashion, automotive, and furniture markets, Lectra contributes with boldness and passion to the Industry 4.0 revolution by providing software, equipment, data, and services to brands, manufacturers, and retailers.
Founded in 2018, TextileGenesis provides a Software as a Service (SaaS) platform that enables fashion brands and sustainable textile manufacturers to ensure a reliable, secure and fully digital mapping of their textiles, from the fiber to the consumer, and thereby guarantee their authenticity and origins. This solution ensures the traceability of TextileGenesis’ customers’ entire sustainable textile supply chain in order to meet the demands for transparency, driven by changes in legislation in a growing number of countries and by growing consumer awareness, thereby encouraging sustainable development.
Its innovative traceability mechanism, which addresses both ends of the textile value chain, as well as its network of partners for material certification, and its technology platform guarantee the exchange and tracking of reliable and secure data throughout a material’s life cycle.
Several of the world’s most prestigious fashion brands as well as leading sustainable fiber producers are already convinced of the value of TextileGenesis’ innovative offer, which enables the connection of multiple actors of the sustainable fashion ecosystem on this platform.
“Fashion is one of the most fragmented industries due to its long and complex value chain, which makes it opaque to brands, suppliers, subcontractors, and consumers” says Amit Gautam, founder of TextileGenesis. “Today, only 19% of fashion industry actors have visibility of their value chain, and this visibility is often partial. Many brands, especially those that have set ambitious sustainability goals, face a real challenge in terms of supply chain transparency. If they cannot track the life cycle of certified materials, they will not be able to justify the sustainability of their products,” he adds.
“Having the highest ethical standards, guaranteeing the well-being of our employees, and preserving the environment are embedded in Lectra’s DNA and guide our daily decisions. Through our technology, acquisitions, and partnerships, we aim to empower our customers to work in a more socially and environmentally responsible way,” says Daniel Harari, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of Lectra. “We look forward to joining forces with TextileGenesis’ talented teams to accelerate the development of their sustainable material traceability solution and deepen our knowledge of the textile value chain in the fashion industry,” he concludes.
At the beginning of January, Lectra will acquire 51% of TextileGenesis for 15.2 million euros. The acquisition of the remaining share capital and voting rights is expected to take place in two stages, in 2026 and 2028, for an amount that will be calculated based on a multiple of the 2025 and 2027 recurring revenues.
As a major player in the fashion, automotive and furniture markets, Lectra contributes to the Industry 4.0 revolution with boldness and passion by providing best-in-class technologies.
The Group offers industrial intelligence solutions – software, equipment, data and services – that facilitate the digital transformation of the companies it serves. In doing so, Lectra helps its customers push boundaries and unlock their potential. The Group is proud to state that its 2,500 employees are driven by three core values: being open-minded thinkers, trusted partners and passionate innovators.
Founded in 1973, Lectra reported revenues of 388 million euros in 2021 and is listed on Euronext Paris (LSS), Lectra has set a revenue target of between 514 and 534 million euros for 2022.
In Conjunction with Collection Launch, Reebok to Donate $600,000 to RISE, a national nonprofit that educates and empowers the sports community to eliminate racial discrimination and champion social justice
Reebok introduces its latest Human Rights Now! collection, a long-term product platform that debuted in 2021, designed to fuel the brand’s mission to inspire human rights and human movement.
This year’s capsule collection aims to bring awareness to equity and access in sport, celebrating the progress we’ve made, but also recognizing the much-needed work that still needs to be done. The line comes fifty years after a historic law passed that achieved better equity for women in sports and forty years after the debut of Reebok’s Freestyle Hi, the very first fitness shoe made specifically for women.
In conjunction with the release of the Human Rights Now! Collection, Reebok is also donating $600,000 to RISE, a non-profit that educates and empowers the sports community to eliminate racial discrimination, champion social justice, and improve race relations. The investment will help drive RISE programming across all levels of athletes and coaches around the country; programming which leaves 92% of students feeling more equipped to have difficult conversations about race and diversity and 96% willing to intervene to stop discrimination according to a RISE survey. In 2022 alone, RISE has hosted programming for more than 22,000 participants across 33 states and 89 cities.
“As with all of our Human Rights Now! product releases, this collection sheds light on the importance of inclusion, representation and access, not only in sport but in all facets of life,” said Reebok’s Director of Human Rights Now! Product & Apparel Energy Concepts, Carmen Andrade Hardaway. “Our partnership with RISE is such a great extension of our product collection as they help to educate the sports community on these critical topics”
The collection features a range of lifestyle footwear and apparel in unisex and women’ sizing, all of which incorporate a black, green and white color palette. Each piece of footwear features the Human Rights Now! logo on the tongue and the Human Rights Now! manifesto is depicted on the heels of the footwear and select apparel. It reads, “Let your voice be heard, wear this product with pride. Not just because you support the fight for human rights, but because you have those rights.”
The footwear collection includes the Club C Revenge ($90), Classic Leather ($85), Club C Mid ($90), Classic Nylon ($90) and Freestyle Hi ($90) in a variety of colorways including Black, White, Green Cream and Morning Fog. Highlights of the apparel collection include the HRN Crew Neck ($65), HRN Legging ($70), HRN T-shirt ($35) and HRN Jogger ($70).
Headlining Reebok’s Human Rights Now! collection is Lexie Brown, a Reebok partner and professional basketball player. As a longtime athlete Lexie has seen disparity in equity in sport and is passionate about creating lasting change for the future generations of women in sports.
“Being involved in Reebok’s Human Rights Now! collection is incredibly important to me as there are so many people in this world that often feel unheard and misunderstood, myself included,” said Brown. “I have consistently faced a lack of respect being a Black woman in sports, which has only fueled me to keep pushing boundaries in the sports world and reinforced why I started playing in the first place.”
Supporting Brown in the campaign, is Ambry Moss, a former member of the Bahamas national football team, collegiate soccer player, and Reebok employee who is passionate about ensuring better access to sport for the next generation.
The Human Rights Now! collection is part of Reebok’s commitment to donate $10M over the next four years to directly support Black and LatinX communities through organizations focused on ending racial injustice. The release of the collection also coincides with the 2022 Reebok Human Rights Awards, which previously ran from 1988-2007 and returned in 2021. This year’s award, in partnership with Alabama State University, the ACLU, RISE, and Sports Illustrated will honor extraordinary activists in the world of sports and athletics. Later this week, Reebok will be announcing this year’s recipient at the annual Sports Illustrated Awards show.
