Gucci Gift campaign via 360 MAGAZINE.

Gucci Gift

This year’s Gucci Gift campaign draws inspiration from the world of travel in a nod to the House’s founding history and heritage. Under a starlit Winter sky, a cast of characters boards a fanciful locomotive with an atmosphere that evokes splendor but also a bit of intrigue. Each passenger is on a journey that goes beyond the imagination, tinged with a shared appreciation for that which is beautiful in the world.

Envisioned by Creative Director Alessandro Michele, the images captured by Carlijn Jacobs and the film shot by Jordan Hemingway cast a light on the shimmering and joyful spirit of the festive season. Trolleys, duffels, and cases of different shapes and sizes for carrying all things necessary (and not) take center stage, recounting the House’s imaginative vision of travel, while lace, ruffles, rich velvets, and sequins all add to the magic of the Holidays. The House’s signature bags are dressed for the occasion, presented in tone-on-tone palettes, miniature proportions, precious leathers, and with optical motifs. Passengers showcase a curated selection of fine jewelry and watches as they travel in suites adorned with pieces from the Gucci Décor collection. Vanity tables display elegant, collectible Gucci Beauty designs alongside a Lifestyle selection that includes lounge and leisure wear as well as items from the Gucci Pet collection modeled by a troupe of darling dogs along for the ride.

The Gucci Gift campaign celebrates the magic of the festivities and the joy of sharing these moments with loved ones in the spirit of this special time of year.

For women’s bags, the House presents the Gucci Horsebit 1955 bag, as well as the chain wallet, in bold tone-on-tone hues such as purple, orange, black, and midnight blue. There is also a selection of mini statement bags in pink GG Matelassé leather presenting a textural take on the House monogram. The GG Marmont is reimagined with a swirling optical print, either in black and white or pink and purple.

Adding a refined elegance to the curation, signature bags in precious leather such as the Jackie 1961 and Gucci Bamboo 1947 are on display in the campaign, as well as a gold clutch from the House’s evening offer. For men, the bag selection of totes and backpacks is defined by the grey-on-grey GG monogram, with matching small leather goods and belts highlighted.

Elevated elegance defines the ready-to-wear pieces for men and women, highlighted throughout the sparkling and refined details. Lace, ruffles, rich velvets, and sequins accent the women’s selection, while sophisticated sartorial silhouettes in tartans define menswear.

The shoe selection includes both daywear and evening options. For women, chunky rubber-sole sneakers and Horsebit loafers get a pop of pastel hues while classic boots in a range of colors are defined by heritage details. As an online exclusive, there is a GG blue Jordaan loafer with a floral print. Continuing the theme of elevated elegance found in the Gucci Cosmogonie collection, there are GG-monogram-enriched platform heels, as well as sparkling mid-height mules and slingbacks in the bold tones of fuchsia, lime green, and orange. For men, there are the Gucci Run sneakers in black and white, as well as a white version with a blue and red Interlocking G detail. For the evening offer, the campaign showcases black patent leather loafers with a black Horsebit detail or a silver Blondie emblem.

The accessories highlight heritage codes. Reversible belts, with a tone-on-tone side or monogram one, put the GG front and center to complete everyday looks. There is also a GG grey belt for men, to go along with the full range of pieces highlighted in the campaign. Wallets, cardcases, and pouches are on display, while keychains also feature the Interlocking G. There are also winter hats and gloves, as well as silk scarves with prints reflecting signature handbag silhouettes.

The jewelry selection includes both fashion pieces that play with star motifs and the House script. The Gucci Flora fine jewelry collection, defined by intricate nature-inspired details crafted in 18k white gold and diamonds, echoes the fanciful atmosphere of the campaign. The G-Timeless watch with a dial decorated with 15 bees is also presented for men and women, portraying the House’s instinct to combine classic designs with whimsical details.

Pieces from the Gucci Décor collection are found throughout the enchanted train, including a blanket with an Interlocking G and star design. There is also a selection of porcelain tableware crafted by Richard Ginori with the black Herbarium motif, as well as cushions with romantic phrases and whimsical details. Gucci Lifestyle pieces are also showcased, with silk pajamas, printed fans, and portable game sets fitting seamlessly into the luxury travel setting. With both gifting and travel top of mind, the Gucci Pet Collection is also presented. The GG pet carrier, along with a GG monogram coat, an Interlocking G sweater, and a green-red-green collar portray how the House’s codes are reinterpreted with an element of surprise.

From the Gucci Eyewear collection are featured two mask shaped sunglasses in acetate, one with a tortoiseshell-like finish and blue GG-monogram reflective lenses, the other in an all-black version.

Products from Gucci Beauty also appear within the gifting curation in the campaign, including the Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia and Gorgeous Jasmine Eau de Parfum, Mémoire d’une Odeur, Gucci Bloom Eau de Parfum, as well as the Eau de Toilette, and a selection of The Alchemist’s Garden fragrances and scented waters.

Billy Porter is a Tony, Grammy and Emmy Award-winning actor, singer, director, composer, and playwright – and today – his latest accomplishment comes in the form of a wax figure from the world’s greatest wax museum, Madame Tussauds. Billy announced the exciting news to his fans on Instagram. Hailing from Pittsburgh, PA, Billy is best known for his electric portrayal of Pray Tell in FX’s breakthrough series, “Pose;” representation of the Fairy Godmother in Amazon’s remake of Cinderella; and his fabulous style. A veteran of the theater, Billy, has also starred in Broadway including Kinky Boots, which he won the 2013 Drama Desk and Tony Awards for Best Actor in a Musical. Besides his accomplishments in acting, Billy is also known as an inspirational icon. Through his powerful statements on the red carpet and openness within interviews and his memoir, he is admired for his vulnerability and supportive nature to all communities. Therefore, on behalf of World Kindness Day on November 13, Billy announced there’s more of him to spread kindness with his new wax figure.

Billy sat down with a team of artists who will create his wax figure.

A Scott Studenberg-designed turquoise jacket and jumpsuit, and a wide-brimmed hat with a motorized screen of crystalline fringe. The figure will take about six months and 20 studio artists to create in London before fans can meet his figure at Madame Tussauds New York Times Square.

“I am humbly honored to be receiving my very own wax figure at Madame Tussauds. It’s been a pleasure to work with the artists to make this dream come true and I can’t wait to see my twin in New York!” said Billy Porter.

After making history becoming the first openly gay, black man to win an Emmy for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama, Billy has fought to provide visibility and inspiration to all young queer people of all colors.

Black Eyed Peas ninth album Elevation launched via 360 MAGAZINE.

BEP – ELEVATION

Multi-platinum and six-time GRAMMY® Award-winning, genre-bending pioneers Black Eyed Peas proudly present their anxiously awaited ninth full-length album, ELEVATION, out now. Listen to ELEVATION HERE.

The 15-track juggernaut kaleidoscopically spins together hip-hop, Latin, R&B, electronic, trap, and more into a larger-than-life vision of what pop can be in the 21st century without boundaries or borders. From the jump, uncontainable energy surges through this bold body of work. “MUEVELO” [feat. Anuel AA & Marshall Jefferson] glides along on bright keys and big handclaps offset by robotic transmissions, a command to “Move your body,” and a promise “We stay lit forever.  Elsewhere, “Dance 4 U” hinges on a slick bass line and punchy groove. The sample on “Jump” predicts the reaction perfectly, “Somebody said when you play this song all the girls will go loca. The kinetic stomp of “Firestarter” leaves flames in the wake of its incendiary vocals. The group shine brighter than ever.

Check out the full tracklisting below.

Black Eyed Peas teased out ELEVATION with “SIMPLY THE BEST” [with Brazilian global pop superstar Anitta El Alfa]. It has already generated over 2.9 million Spotify streams and 18 million YouTube views on the music video. Earning critical acclaim, mxdwn asserted, ‘Simply The Best’ acts as clear proof to fans that Black Eyed Peas remain just as capable of creating fun and energizing party tracks as they have been since their 1995 formation, and That Grape Juice fittingly summed it up as “a global affair.

Right out of the gate, “SIMPLY THE BEST” rides luminous dancefloor-ready keys towards a chantable chorus, “No it don’t get better than, better than this.” Black Eyed PeasAnitta, and El Alfa trade verses back and forth, unlocking undeniable and unbreakable chemistry. At the same time, Anitta infuses the track with Brazilian swagger, El Alfa turns up with Dominican Republic flavor, and Black Eyed Peas exude laidback Los Angeles confidence in between these global rhythms. The visual continues a tradition of larger-than-life videos for the group as well. Once again, they pull out all the stops.

ELEVATION finds Black Eyed Peas expanding the collective musical consciousness and pushing boundaries yet again (like only they can). Of course, they bring a few friends along for this rollercoaster ride. The group link up with Daddy Yankee on the reggaeton banger “BAILAR CONTIGO, while Nicky Jam ignites the funkified “GET DOWN” with fresh fire. Then, there’s “FILIPINA QUEEN” where they team up with J. Rey Soul and deliver an inimitable and irresistible bop. Nicole Scherzinger lends her powerhouse pipes to “NO ONE LOVES ME, and Black Eyed Peas and Ozuna close out the album together on the universally-resounding “L.O.V.E.”

They initially teased ELEVATION with the international smash “DON’T YOU WORRY” [with Shakira David Guetta]. It has already gathered more than 111 million Spotify streams and 113 million YouTube views on the music video. Meanwhile, it catapulted into the Top 40 at AC, in the Top 30 of the iTunes Top Pop Songs Chart, and Top 50 of the Shazam U.S. Top 200. Beyond recent acclaim from BillboardNME, and more, the group also recently performed on ABC network’s Good Morning America’s Summer Concert Series in Central Park.

It is ELEVATION season for Black Eyed Peas. Join them on the next level!

ABOUT BLACK EYED PEAS:

Black Eyed Peas continue to fulfill a master plan to push the game forward devised way back in 1995. They execute each stage of this plan with focus and intent, allowing their evolution to play out in real-time over a series of game-changing albums, beginning with Behind The Front [1998] through Bridging The Gap [2000], Elephunk [2003], Monkey Business [2005], The E.N.D. [2009], The Beginning[2010], Masters of the Sun, Vol. 1 [2018], and, most recently TRANSLATION[2020]. Along the way, co-founders will.i.amApl.de.Ap, and Taboo have set music industry records that will probably never be exceeded, moved north of 35 million albums and 120 million singles, gathered six GRAMMY® Awards, and headlined the Super Bowl, the World Cup, and F1 races. The multi-platinum group launched the comeback of the decade after eight years of dormancy. The future matters the most to these trailblazers, which brings us to their 2022 blockbuster ninth full-length, Elevation [Epic Records]. The 15-track opus represents another logical step and the dawn of a new phase, boasting the smash “DON’T YOU WORRY” [feat. Shakira David Guetta] and collabs with Daddy YankeeNicky JamAnuel AA, OzunaNicole Scherzinger, and more.

About the record, will.i.am comments, “We were behind the front, then we bridged the gap. We rode an elephant’s back to realize the industry was full of monkey business. That was the end, but the end is new beginnings. Becoming masters of the sun, mastering the industry, we realized we had to have translation in this complex world. But we be falling up, and never falling down. Black Eyed Peas is known for elevation. This is the next stage for us, reaching higher.”

Tel K. Ganesan via 360 MAGAZINE

Tel K. Ganesan

Founder and Chairman of Kyyba


Tel K. Ganesan moved to the United States with bright dreams. After being able to earn an engineering degree in India, a change of environment was a challenge, but Tel overcame all those adversities to finish his postgraduate degree as he began his path to success.

His attitude has never allowed him to give up on what has made him Tel K. Ganesan, mentor, philanthropist, and businessman. “If you want an opportunity to knock, it’s time to build a door,” Ganesan says.

Ganesan grew up under the strong influence of his mother’s pursuit of the American Dream. Eventually, Automotive Engineering brought Ganesan to the United States, specifically the city of Detroit, where he pursued a master’s at age 21. He has lived in Detroit for 30 years and has never wanted to leave since he came. He chose this place as his home and to contribute his grain of sand in the city, he is rebuilding everything that has to do with the business landscape with Kyyba Inc., consisting of Kyyba Innovations, Kyyba Wellness, Kyyba Music, Kyyba film, and Kyyba Kidz.

Tel K. Ganesan is the CEO of Kyyba Innovations and President of Kyyba Inc., Engineering Services and Software Products. The Kyyba brand has expanded into film productions through his company Kyyba Films. According to Ganesan: “I started as an ID entrepreneur and then diversified into other areas lately into films, music, Fashions, and wellness so that’s what I’ve been doing so far.’’

Tel K. Ganesan has always believed in doing what the heart says. With the founding of Kyyba Kidz, he has pursued his dreams of making the world a better place by helping the most disadvantaged children. Ganesan has always been grateful for the education and healthcare he received growing up. “A lot of major tech companies are run by people of Indian origin,” Ganesan emphasizes, “the root cause goes back to the societal conditioning of putting education in the mindset of people.” Through educational programs, the foundation seeks to bring trust, honesty, growth, and confidence to every child in need. The main goal of Kyyba Kidz is “to increase the cognitive and psychological awareness of young people to help them achieve great achievements in life by choosing the right career” explains Ganesan on his website.

Ganesan is a testament to faith in his American dream and entrepreneurial spirit. As stated by Tel, “you have only one life. At this point in life, I’m doing something for my spirit which is really getting into this creative space.’’ With perseverance and hard work, he has taken his career from businessman to film producer. “Whatever I learn in one business I apply to another business in another industry and keep it going so I know.’’ Tel Ganesan admits.

Kyyba Films in association with Nasik Rav Media releases “Trap City” starring Brandon T Jackson and actor and GV music composer Prakash. WATCH TRAILERS HERE. As a film producer, Tel Ganesan has an exciting project ahead of him. “I learned about trap culture… And that anyone can be in a trap because of the environment, society, economics, and sometimes even psychological conditions,” he recalls, “and I took this as an inspirational and spiritual awakening of understanding what’s really happening.” “I want to send an inspiring message on how to get out of the Trap through this movie,’’ Ganesan clarifies.

Ganesan is thrilled about the upcoming release of “Trap City” around the first quarter of 2023: “I’m gonna graduate from this one (Trap City)…this is like cutting my teeth into the film business.” Some of Ganesan’s projects after the release of the movie “Trap City” are working in the world of the metaverse and seeking collaborations with other companies with much larger budgets.

Call him a film producer, philanthropist, entrepreneur, innovator, guide, or speaker; Tel K. Ganesan really is an all-rounder. Today, his dreams are a reality. Like any other successful human being, he has pursued ambition with a never-give-up attitude: “Successful people do what unsuccessful people aren’t willing to do. I don’t wish it was easier; I wish you were better.”

Listen to 360 MAG‘s podcast interview f/ Carly Weinstein on SPOTIFY.

Watch 360 MAGAZINE‘s interview with Carly Weinstein YOUTUBE.

Carly Weinstein is fast becoming Gen Z’s Carrie Bradshaw. With a strong emphasis on popular culture, mental health as well as body positivity, this charismatic content creator engages on a wide spectrum of topics with her new podcasts–Hot Girl Talks and Ok, Stop Wine-ing. Of late, she participates in bantar alongside of Vaughn Lowery about her meeting with Drew Barrymore and what the cards may hold for her future.

With an aggregate following of a half million and over 38 million likes on TikTok, Carly is this generation’s everyday gal-pal. Her comedic content focuses on everyday, real-life challenges which people in their twenties experience. Along with her two co-hosts and best friends, Hailey and Jaz, the trio hosts “Hot Girl Talks” – a weekly series that pinpoints Gen Z growing pains in NYC.

On a lighter note, Carly co-hosts “Ok Stop Wine-ing” alongside her mom. She says , “a great lesson for a mother and a daughter.” The duo executes weekly confabulations while offering advice on how to meticulously navigate life.

Following in the footsteps of the iconic bloggers of the 2000s’, Carly self-taught herself how to code and build websites. During her adolescence at Indiana University (IU), she developed “All Things C.” It provided her with an opportunity to create a safe space where she openly spoke about her eating disorders and body dysmorphia to a relatable demographic of her peers. “No matter what I’m talking about… I make sure the basis of my brand always has those underlying messages of ‘you’re beautiful no matter what,’…and giving people advice on how to combat some of those hard times in life.” “I’ve been through plenty of mental health issues in my life, so I speak to my following as if I’m speaking to my younger self or a younger sibling.” Priding herself as the “mom” of group, Carly has always possessed a knack helping those in need.

After graduating from IU, Carly relocated to NYC as a social media manager. Subsequently, she expeditiously transitioned into an avid TikToker, garnering recognition for her unapologetic approach. Thus, she discovered her niche as a creator.

In her leisure, she traveled and grew fond of pickleball while building strong ties to her community.

“I’m very involved with Jewish youth organizations like BBYO… My family is really big with making donations to cancer charities, also mental health organizations like the National Eating Disorders Association.”

In the near future, Carly hopes to become an advocate for mental stability.

CJ PERRY talks about the surreal life via 360 MAGAZINE.

CJ Perry – The Surreal Life

CJ Perry stars on the reboot of The Surreal Life which airs on VH1 Mondays at 9 pm/8c. As of late, she engages in an introspective conversation with Vaughn Lowery on the 360 MAG podcast about mental health, homelessness in LA and her career in the WWE. Additionally, she sheds light on her newfound friendship with castmate Tamar Braxton.

The weekly episodic features eight notable TV personalities (CJ Perry, Frankie Muniz, Tamar Braxton, Kim Coles, Stormy Daniels, August Alsina, and Manny MUA) who live together under one roof while unmasking their vulnerabilities. The celebrities will also compete in a series of challenges each week. Watch The Surreal Life Trailer!

CJ Perry is best known as WWE Superstar “Lana” and “The Ravishing Russian” for the past decade. She grew up in Latvia and can speak the Russian language. Every morning, she eats five eggs and a bowl of oatmeal for breakfast to fuel her moves. The talented WWE superstar also acted in popular series such as E!’s “Total Divas” and “Pitch Perfect 1 & 2.” She stunned everyone at the London and New York Fashion Weeks and landed partnerships with red-hot brands like PrettyLittleThing and Fashion Nova

Perry spoke about the WWE’s controversial third-party policy that went into effect last year, which fans accused her of being the ‘straw that broke the camel’s back’ because she had a number of sponsorship deals through her Instagram. “I’ve been always in communication with WWE, always given them every single… Everything I do, I always get everything approved. I am, regardless of what people see me on screen throughout the years as the bad guy, the heel, the loud mouth, the drama, behind the scenes, I would say I try to do everything by the book. Because I deal with really bad anxiety and mental health issues and I just get too anxious if I feel like I’m breaking the rules, “Perry stated in an interview with ComicBook. She also mentioned in the Talk Is Jericho podcast that the only way she’d return to the wrestling scene is if a company offered a No-Cut clause in the contract. 

Aside from being a pro wrestler, Perry starred opposite Jonathan Rhys-Meyers in sci-fi thriller film WIFELIKE. The film tells the story of a widower named William (Jonathan Rhys Meyers) who receives an A.I. copy of his late wife, Meredith (Elena Kampouris). In the fight to end AI exploitation, an underground resistance attempts to infiltrate him by sabotaging the programming of the AI Meredith. So she begins to question her reality as memories of a past life begin to surface in a world where nothing is as it seems.

Perry also starred opposite Bruce Willis in sci-fi-action film COSMIC SIN. The story follows a group of warriors and scientists who must fight to protect and save their race when a hostile alien species with the power to infect and take over human hosts sets its sights on a futuristic human society. Perry will step into the role of “Sol” — who was originally written for a male. The character is described as “the best sniper in the galaxy and lead assassin fighting for the human race against an alien invasion.”

Perry had a breakout acting role in the fantasy/romance feature film titled, “Another Version of You” released in 2019. She was also an Executive Producer on the film and won the 2018 Audience Award at the Nashville Film Festival. The film talks about when the girl Diggsy’s always loved gets married to another man, he gets an opportunity to explore parallel universes to find another version of her who might love him back. Perry was drawn to her character Gwyneth since she is free-spirited and in the moment. “I love that free spirit about her,” she admitted. “Sometimes, her biggest strength is her greatest weakness. She just goes with the wind.”

Louis Vuitton and FIFA World Cup via 360 MAGAZINE.

Louis Vuitton × FIFA

Louis Vuitton unveils an exclusive capsule collection designed specially for the FIFA World Cup Qatar 2022TM that captures the excitement of football in sophisticated shapes, sporty treatments, and discreetly elegant details.

Since 2010, Louis Vuitton has provided the travel trunk for one of the world’s most sought-after, legendary trophies: the FIFA World Cup Trophy. In the years following, Louis Vuitton’s relationship with the FIFA World CupTM grew, unveiling a new leather goods collection launched for the 2018 edition of the globally anticipated sporting tournament.

On the occasion of this twenty-second edition, five collectible pieces in black Taurillon leather channel the game’s energy by revisiting one of Maison’s most emblematic signatures, the Damier motif, embossed to recall the movement of the net as a goal is scored.

Timeless icons like the Keepall 50 and City Keepall bags, as well as the Discovery backpack, return as ideal travel companions, offering ample central compartments, practical inner pockets that keep essentials to hand, and adjustable straps accented with black metallic hardware (on Keepall styles, shoulder straps also are removable). Finishing touches include a leather tag shaped like a soccer league badge, with “Louis Vuitton” stamped in white and a tone-on-tone LV signature set amid the mesh. The generous Keepall 50 also features five protective bottom studs shaped like football cleats.

Small leather goods include a dopp kit with contrasting piping and an adjustable leather handle, alongside a handy pocket organizer with five inner pockets, an outer pocket, and contrasting edges and LV logo.

The Louis Vuitton FIFA World Cup 2022TM Official Licensed Product Collection will be available in selected Louis Vuitton stores and on louisvuitton.com from 6th October 2022.
