Rolls-Royce Coachbuild

According to Robb Report, Beyoncé and Jay-Z may be the proud owners of one of these vehicles.

Rolls-Royce Motor Cars is honored to present the next chapter of its Boat Tail coachbuilt commission—one of just three that have been, and ever will be, made.

The essence of Rolls-Royce Coachbuild is that each commission tells a story entirely unique and personal to its owner, reflecting their own history, tastes and sensibilities. With this in mind, Boat Tail, revealed at Concorso d’Eleganza, Villa d’Este 2022, on the shores of Lake Como in northern Italy, is a masterwork of restraint, sophistication, elegance and attention to detail.

Boat Tail is entirely hand-built, with the body panels fashioned from vast, single sheets of aluminum to create the distinctive outline inspired by the racing yachts of the early 20th century. In every respect, this remarkable motor car is entirely unique.

This Boat Tail design was commissioned by a patron whose family business has grown from his father’s origins in the pearling industry. Widely traveled, internationally educated and cosmopolitan in his tastes and influences, the client is an established patron of the arts, who additionally owns a sizable collection of classic and modern cars, housed in a dedicated private museum.

The foundation of the color is a shimmering blend of oyster and soft rose, with large white and bronze mica flakes adding a unique pearlescent quality that changes subtly under different light conditions. The contrasting cognac-colored bonnet, created specifically for this Boat Tail, contains fine bronze and gold colored aluminum mica flakes complete with a layer of crystal and iced matte clear coat, adding significant warmth and depth to the car’s appearance. The technical fiber lower sills of Boat Tail incorporate a rose gold woven thread.

The rear deck, which houses Boat Tail’s unique ‘butterfly-design’ hosting suite, is swathed in Royal Walnut veneer, inlaid with rose gold-plated pinstripes with a satin-brushed finish to ensure a sensitive and sophisticated appearance. The Royal Walnut was specifically selected by the client for its beautiful properties as it matures over time, a material that will gradually transition to the tonal properties of the cognac color. From above, one observes a harmonious balance and satin effect of the iced bonnet and tactile wooden rear deck, in contrast with the high-gloss front and side perspectives.

From the front, the Pantheon Grille, milled from a single, solid billet of aluminum, is graced with a Spirit of Ecstasy fashioned in rose gold.

The interior is a beautifully curated combination of perfectly matched cognac and oyster-colored leathers and Royal Walnut veneer, with rose gold and mother-of-pearl accents throughout. The leathers, complete with a pearlescent finish, accentuate the surfaces and forms of Boat Tail’s seats and interior design. The transmission tunnel is formed from Royal Walnut veneer with rose gold pinstripes, drawing a direct visual reference to the rear deck and adding a glowing warmth to Boat Tail’s interior.

The centerpiece of the dashboard is a timepiece made from mother-of-pearl, chosen and supplied by the client from his own collection; the fascia of which is pure and minimal in its appearance so as not to detract from the precious material. The same prized substance graces the control switches and instrument dials, creating a strong visual and material connection between the car, the owner, and his family heritage.

Dave Audé – Motions

Listen to Grammy Award-winning Producer, DJ and Remixer Dave Audé discuss his debut album and illustrious career with Vaughn Lowery on 360 MAG podcast HERE.

Los Angeles native Dave Audé is a Grammy Award-winning producer. Currently, he resides in Nashville with his loving wife and three kids. In the early 90’s, he was best known as the co-founder of Moonshine Music.

Audé has produced a plethora of highly acclaimed artists such as Beyoncé, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Céline Dion, Lady Gaga, and Madonna. With 13 number-one singles on the Billboard Dance Music Charts, he has remixed hundreds of songs.

In 2010, Audé was nominated for a Grammy for his remix of Dean Coleman’s, “I Want You.” In 2016, he won for his Bruno Mars makeover of “Uptown Funk.” Dave admits the best part of the Grammy’s, “Knowing I’m nominated.” The DJ adds, ”Obviously winning as well and taking home the trophy, but really getting there first, being nominated by someone and everyone vote for you, and making it to the final five is really amazing.”

Dave Audé’s professionalism and and rhythms reflect his characteristic ease within the realm of mathematical electronic music. With twenty years plus experience, this vet maintains his methodology, “The real focus is on the artist and the song,” Dave confesses.

Audacious Records has produced a 120 as a remixer and 14 #1s as an artist. In 2015, the imprint was listed No.1-Independent Record Label. Of late, they continue dropping hits like, “This Is Our Time” and “Break Out.”

In 2008, he was named musical director for the Pussycat Dolls Tour. Today, he serves as the Grammy co-chairman of the Nashville chapter.

As the ultimate remixer, Dave provides the sonic solution. With a strong background rooted in artist development and musicality, he co-wrote and co-produced Selena Gomez’s Kill’em with Kindness as well as remixed Shaggy and Sting’s Just One Lifetime.

Throughout the decades, he built a reputation as a master remixer and producer, delivering chart-topping results. Audé constantly experiments with various genres, conjuring melodic magic for his fans across the globe. In 2021, Audé received his third GRAMMY nod for “Best Remixed Recording, featuring Ariana Grande and Demi Lovato on “Met Him Last Night.”

Subsequently, Dave Audé made a decision to manufacture his very own menu of music. According to Dave, ‘‘I just decided that I wanted to do my thing and have an album. I really wanted to sit down and write a bunch of music with my friends and put out an album of my own.’’ Audé’s chameleon-like abilities allow him to succeed in any genre, from pop to country and electronic to rock. Upon being asked about his best-loved tracks, “They are all my favorites for different reasons.” Further, for Dave, the dance genre isn’t strictly for the clubs, it’s life’s soundtrack. ”Nowadays dance music is heard in everything, it’s to brush your teeth, to wake you up in the morning, to prepare breakfast, etc.,” shares the megastar.

Some advice to aspiring music producers:

  • “Sometimes the long road is the road to take.”
  • ”You need to gain some experience and meet people.”
  • For all those people who want to work in music: “It’s really about knowing that you want to do something with music, you know, stick with it, keep in mind what your goal is, what your end goal is.”

Adele is featured on the cover of Elle Canada announced by Vaughn lowery of 360 MAGAZINE

ADELE × ELLE

KO Média is excited to unveil the September issue of ELLE Canada, featuring British singer-songwriter Adele. The multi-Grammy-award-winning star finally opens up about the difficult decision to cancel her Las Vegas residency at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. “The first couple of months were really, really hard,” she says. The star dives into how she went into hiding after the dramatic cancellation announcement on Instagram, her reasons for doing so and how the last-minute decision actually “made [her] confidence in [herself] grow because it was a very brave thing to do.” During the intimate interview at her home in July, only weeks out from her half-decade-long stage break, Adele spoke about the incredible arrangement she and her former partner have when it comes to co-parenting their son and even gushed about being madly in love—and joked about being unmarried (for now)—with her new man, sports agent Rich Paul. But it wasn’t all lighthearted. The singer went into detail about enduring the lowest points of her career, feeling lonely, experiencing anxiety attacks and finding herself again through fitness and kickboxing. Now Adele is on her way back to Las Vegas, and the response has been better than she could have imagined.

With the strongest of the summer season’s rays behind us, it’s time to stock up on hydrating foundations and skin-perfecting serums to help restore our skin after all the sand and sun we indulged in. For readers trying to hold on to the warmth for as long as possible, we take a look at Barcelona’s hottest spots, highlighting where to stay, what to eat and where the best shopping is in the Catalan city. And nothing says endless summer like the fresh, romantic scent of roses, which are the highlight of Lancôme’s French estate and its timeless perfume line.

Looking ahead, our biggest trend reports have the scoop on what you’ll want to wear and how you’ll want to style your hair and do your makeup for the fall season. And with the inevitable return (at least in part) to the office, the baggy, flowy, oversized power suit—inspired by the likes of Yves Saint Laurent, Martin Margiela and Yohji Yamamoto—has made its way from the runways into our closets. Work attire has finally shifted from tight and structured-tight to loose and comfortable—think Zendaya in Valentino’s latest ad campaign. Just add this season’s neon liner, bold lips and big accessories, and “What should I wear to work?” will seldom be a question in the morning. However, heading back to the office doesn’t come without a shift in work-life balance. Val Desjardins, our new health and wellness contributor, explains her holistic approach to adopting new habits and pursuing daily pleasure, making the transition to a new normal a breeze.

This issue also focuses on female empowerment. We spoke to multi-Juno-winning R&B artist Savannah Ré about her new album as well as bestselling author Lisa Taddeo about how she helps readers grapple with feelings of loneliness and grief. We also have advice for Canadian women on how to ask for a raise or promotion—and get it too—and we chatted with actor Myha’la Herrold about feeling bold, confident and empowered in her career. But empowerment isn’t only career-focused; non-binary and transgender people are starting to feel more empowered through their hair. New salons are ditching the old-school binary haircuts and opting for more inclusive services, allowing everyone to express themselves through their hair.

On the fashion front, up-and-coming South African designer Lukhanyo Mdingi is creating a legacy through his designs and using the skills of local people to create his brand’s blueprint. And we take a closer, more critical look at the well-intentioned trend of donating clothing. What we discovered is that a large majority of these pieces end up in the oceans, on beaches and in landfills in other countries, like Ghana. This piece makes us rethink the Instagram trend of having a different outfit for every post, the ethics of fast-fashion companies like Shein and how we can reduce our carbon footprint when it comes to our closets.

Vy Truong and Han Dang co-founders of Very Handsome Studio based in Houston inside 360 MAGAZINE

VERY HANDSOME STUDIO

Listen to the creators of a Very Handsome Studio on 360 MAG Apple/Spotify podcast HERE.

In 2020, Vy Truong and Han Dang, co-founded the emerging Houston-based architectural design firm, Very Handsome Studio [VHS]. Together, the duo, like Megan and Beyoncé in Savage, has a decade of industry experience, specializing in the areas of housing, education, hospitality and commerce.

Truong was born in Houston and attended Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture and Design, majoring in interior architecture. Truong’s mother was a real estate agent and often remembers visiting open houses, “Not so great homes.” Upon witnessing numerous lackluster spaces, Truong became interested in transforming them, “After you see so many, the first thing you kinda wanna do is [ask yourself the question] … how do I improve this space?” It was then that she started her journey as an interior designer. Thus, once she finished her academic career, she quickly concluded that staying in her hometown would be financially advantageous. After all, this is Act I of their renaissance.

Dang, a Vietnamese native, also studied at Gerald D. Hines College of Architecture and Design and holds a degree in Interior Architecture. In the course of adolescence, her insatiable desire for placement and texture was evident. She has a memory of collecting design magazines and cutting pages. While in college, she studied abroad in Central Europe. This tour was an eye-opener for interior inspiration.

When Covid-19 struck, completely locking down Houston’s city center, it adversely affected multiple businesses within a variety of sectors. On the upside, the economic downturn allowed Dang and Truong to solidify their atelier at a much lower price point. Nevertheless, the design dyad remained positive and became more sensitive to the growth and development of their enterprise, “You win some, you lose some.” To date, their agency has witnessed an increase in new accounts, resulting in more than twenty divestitures since its inception.

Very Handsome Studio enthusiastically works in tandem with a plethora of establishments as well as a myriad of restaurants flourishing in the vicinity of their headquarters. Still in its infancy, Truong and Dang of VHS are far beyond achieving what they never imagined.

About Very Handsome Studio:

VHS projects include a conceptual Smash Burger with a bodega theme, children’s academy, speakeasy slash sushi bar alongside an Italian seafood restaurant. At last, Truong and Dang are ecstatic to share their eclectic conceptions with the world, “We are knocking on wood until the doors open.” And soon, they will be at the podium receiving a Cooper Hewitt, the Smithsonian Design Museum’s National Design Award.

Beyoncé renaissance album cover via 360 MAGAZINE

Beyoncé

Beyoncés seventh studio  Renaissance,” has arrived. This is Beyoncé’s first album in six years and first since her world-conquering Lemonade. The 16-song project cites production by Hit-Boy for her song THIQUE.” Hit-Boy, who’s no stranger to collaborating with artists, is responsible for producing a string of anthemic records for Beyoncé (Sorry,” “Flawless,” and “Bow Down / I Been On” to name a few). 

Beyoncé stated in her Instagram post, “Creating this album allowed me a place to dream and to find escape during a scary time in the world. It allowed me to feel free and adventurous in a time when little else was moving. My intention was to create a safe place, a place without judgment. A place to be free of perfectionism and overthinking. A place to scream, release, feel freedom. It was a beautiful journey of exploration. I hope you find joy in this music. I hope it inspires you to release the wiggle. Ha! And to feel as unique, strong, and sexy as you are.”

On July 29, Parkwood Entertainment, an imprint of Columbia Records, no doubt will make pop history with Renaissance.

Beyoncé’s cover art displays her prominently seated on a crystal horse with a black background. While both of her hands appear to be placed on the steed, her upper half is on the side and facing us.

Visit HERE for further information and to Pre-Order.

Several activations are planned between now and the end of the year to honor Michael’s epic creation which won a record setting 8 Grammys, smashed musical barriers and changed the frontiers of pop music and videos forever.  Michael Jackson’s Thriller has spent more than 500 weeks on the Billboard album chart and has sold over 100 million albums since its release on November 30, 1982. The first such activation is the first drop of new merchandise featuring the special Thriller 40 logo which is now available exclusively through the MichaelJackson.com Official Site.

MORE ABOUT THRILLER:

Thriller holds a modern-day record of 37 weeks at No. 1 on Billboard. It was the first album in history to spend each of its first 80 weeks in the album chart’s Top 10, a feat only reached by one other album in the nearly four decades since. During its 112th week on Billboard’s album chart, it became the first title ever to be certified RIAA 20X multi-Platinum (October 30, 1984) and became the first title ever to be certified more than RIAA 30X multi-Platinum in 2015 and since has been certified at 34x Multi-Platinum.  

Worldwide, Thriller went to #1 in practically every country in the world, including the UK, France, Italy, Australia, Denmark, Belgium, South Africa, Spain, Ireland, New Zealand, Canada and apartheid South Africa and remains the biggest selling album of all time with sales in excess of 100 million.  Seven tracks from the album became Top 10 singles, and three, Beat It, Billie Jean, and Thriller, went No. 1. 

The music on Thriller was so singular for the time it defied any definition of rock, pop or soul that had gone before. Beat It was a new kind of pop-rock hybrid and demolished the longstanding segregation between black and white music with Eddie Van Halen’s incendiary guitar. On The Girl Is Mine, two men, one white and one Black, banter about the same girl. On the same album were songs like the African-rooted Wanna Be Startin’ Somethin and the rhythm and blues-based Billie Jean.   

Michael set out to revolutionize how to tell a story and entertain on a grand scale through film but faced roadblocks. Despite the luscious cinematography, dramatic narrative and spectacular choreography of Billie Jean, a fledgling MTV, which was programming white rock artists almost exclusively, refused to play it. Epic persisted. Once the wall came crashing down, MTV’s ratings soared and a door was opened for a generation of African American artists. “He was MTV’s Jackie Robinson,” said cultural critic Touré.

Next, came the unforgettable short film for Beat It, which featured Michael bringing two gangs together through the power of music and dance. And then there was Thriller. Premiered at the AVCO Theatre in Los Angeles in 1983, it sold out every night for three weeks. No other video before or since has generated such excitement and has such a hold on our attention, such that 40 years later we all share it as a collective memory and it remains the only music video to be inducted into the elite National Film Registry by the Library of Congress.

Music from Thriller and other hit albums are featured in the Vegas show Michael Jackson ONE, at the Michael Jackson ONE Theater at Mandalay Bay as well as the acclaimed Broadway play MJ The Musical at the Neil Simon Theatre in NYC, which was nominated for 10 Tony Awards. Michael Jackson One by Cirque du Soleil is an electrifying fusion of dance as well as acrobatics which wows audiences. Powered by his greatest hits in a state-of-the-art surround sound atmosphere. ONE takes the audience on a visual expedition–63 overly artistic dancers engaged in extensive choreography.

Michael has sold more than 1 billion records and remains one of the top streaming artists of all time.
