Mugzy McFly

Fashion Designer × Stylist

New York City designer and entrepreneur Jevaughn Williams, widely known as Mugzy McFly, has made his childhood dream come to fruition with Signed By McFly. This fad guru has worked with celebrities like Maino, Doja Cat and Post Malone. Moreover, the GRAMMY Awards hand-picked him to participate in this year’s festivities via gift bags. Furthermore, he constantly produces immersive pop-ups to highlight other minority-owned entities, becoming an arbiter on style and current affairs within his community.

Born and raised in The Bronx, Mugzy grew up with a great deal of inspiration and flare for fashion. At 13, he experienced his first steps with creative design and began fabricating pieces which he could pair his favorite sneakers. Between 2011-12, he started brand brainstorming. In 2013, he launched it. Graphic tees were the label’s inaugural drop. With no financial investors, he handled all aspects of the collection–production, marketing, promotions and account management. This first-hand knowledge inspired the tagline: More Dreams, Less Dream. Since inception, the line has been unisex.

Lastly, Mugzy explains his intuition behind last season’s bestselling collegiate-like jacket with patchwork. It’s color compass was persuaded by his immediate environment. In fact, he never meant to conjure a rainbow-esque theme, its prismatic effect resulted from the orange and blue linked to the Knicks and Mets. While his Afro-Carribean heritage emitted red and green hues, he confirms admiration for gray, ‘It’s like a high taste level to me.’

After 9 years in business, McFly has been featured in various media outlets. Contrary to what one would expect, much of his recent success has been attributed to the pandemic, allowing more time to meticulously delve into overall presentation and client relationships. Thus, he predicts seasonal trends will incorporate comfort, quality yet sustainable ensembles in both vivid and earth tones paired with ecletic sneakers. Jeans will be replaced with nicely constructed joggers and thigh high shorts.

McFly’s advice to budding enterprisers, choose the right moment to launch genderless garments. Don’t be afraid to make mistakes and do it because you enjoy the process. Don’t do it just for money. Finally, lend your brand’s visibility through well-documented, innovative promotional affairs while maintaining professional contacts.

The multi-talented host, producer, creative and visual director, founder of his own production company Under One Roof Productions, celebrity stylist, philanthropist, and Latinx Editor-at-Large for 360 Magazine, Javier Pedroza, is collaborating with Bomba Wear, handmade and tailored skirts for Afro Caribbean and Latin cultural dance.

In Villas Veritas Appoints WEILL for PR

WEILL has been appointed public relations counsel to In Villas Veritas (IVV), arguably the most exclusive villa rental agency in America – so exclusive, in fact, that its existence has been known only to a select few.

Marking its 25th anniversary in 2022, In Villas Veritas was founded by Laura Blair at the urging of her high-net-worth friends, who had long been relying on her expertise in finding the perfect villa or hideaway in America, Europe, the Caribbean, or Asia. 360 Magazine is excited to see how two huge companies work together. 

An American born in Paris and raised internationally, Blair specializes in securing private access to villas, houses, castles, schlosses, and hideaways not listed on the plethora of standard vacation-rental websites. “My goal is to find the ideal location and property for my clients, as opposed to shoehorning them into a villa that just might happen to be available,” says Blair. “This is why we vet all of our properties personally because knowing the property and region is the only way to ensure guests’ total delight.”

IVV lists villas and exclusive homes throughout the Caribbean, the United States, Central America and Europe, and also specializes in making private islands in Europe, the Caribbean and the Maldives available to its clients.

“Finding the ideal destination for our travelers is an art,” says Blair, “because one must take into account the client’s home environment, expectations, taste levels, security requirements, activity levels, and staffing needs. The breathtaking beachfront villa with mediocre staff is just not something I am prepared to countenance.” IVV’s niche is one that seeks to service only the most discriminating and demanding clients.

“We are thrilled to have been asked to represent In Villas Veritas,” says Geoffrey Weill, WEILL founder, and president, “because, especially since the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, more and more families are seeking divine vacation locations, where they can bask in both luxury, safety and utter privacy.”

Alvaro Nuñez Alfaro – Super Luxury Group

Global connector and real estate entrepreneur, Alvaro Nuñez Alfaro, has grown to become one of the latest disrupters in luxury real estate. Over the years, he has developed unique relationships and sold luxury homes to public figures as well as celebrities from all walks of life, amidst accolades from different quarters. In addition to being a real estate talent on the rise of global repute, the founder and CEO of Super Luxury Group is known for his adventures as a skydiver and jetsetter.

We got the chance to speak with Alvaro last week and managed to get insights on how he manages his success and talked to us about his upcoming goals.

What are the objectives of Super Luxury Group?

Super Luxury Group (SLG) is a luxury real-estate media network that focuses on helping the affluent to celebritize and sell high-end properties from Miami to other jet-set locations through proven media, luxury brands, and influencer collaborations.

How have these objectives changed as you get more recognition?

We have a clear vision on what we want to achieve, so we are excited about the continuous journey we have ahead.

Coming from a different country, it’s not always easy to establish connections. What would you say is your biggest tip?

To be humble, energetic, positive, and to always find ways to add value to the right people around you.

In my case, I started by arranging luxury villa rentals and experiences at some iconic destinations, which led to build strong relationships, acquire more knowledge, and therefore, more opportunities.

While it is straightforward, is there a reason you chose the name Super Luxury Group?

The name of Super Luxury Group has a very meaningful story tied to it. As I began my entrepreneurial career doing luxury villa rentals in the Caribbean, I decided to take a leap of faith and expand the business towards Europe – which led me to travel for many months visiting each country and connecting with other companies to build a strong foundation. As I got back home in Madrid, I sat down with my grandfather – a successful visionary and consultant for many on the Fortune 500 list – to talk about the business model and vision for the company and my future. He then drew a logo on a napkin and handed it over to me – it said: “Super Luxury Group.” He then carried on explaining the reason behind it. This was my last conversation with him as a few weeks later he passed away. Therefore, I keep this name and company tied very closely to my heart.

What made you choose Florida?

Florida, especially Miami, represents lifestyle. We wanted an international hub where top players work and play. Even though we operate in many other destinations, Miami will always be the heart of the company, as we work with many successful entrepreneurs and celebrities that trust us every day with their real estate needs.

Are there any international services that clients can contact SLG for?

Yes, we have the same business model we have in Miami in other jet set locations, such as Bahamas, St. Barts, DR, Tulum, Ibiza, Mykonos, French Riviera, etc.

What else do you wish to achieve with SLG in the coming years?

Luxury TV show (which we are already working on it), to host large conferences related to luxury living, and develop our line of villa/hotels.

Any exciting collaborations you wish to share?

There are always great collaborations in place, but there is one related to the NFT world that is going to be mind-blowing – stay tuned!

Alvaro Nuñez Alfaro has built strong connections with the community and created a firm that helps buyers look for a new home. When working with Alvaro’s team at SLG, you will be able to use his connections and knowledge to find what you are looking for. His strong reputation is essential and aligns with his company’s vision and goals.

Super Luxury Group

SLG is an acclaimed Miami luxury real estate media network committed to connect and help the affluent to celebritize and sell high-end properties through influencer marketing. By using the power of proven media, luxury brands, NFT & Crypto integrations, and influencer collaborations, the Super Luxury Group team strives for the best results: matching the clients’ lifestyle with properties that reflect and cater their personal needs is a priority. SLG’s ability to find the best homes is attributed to its team’s knowledge and determination.

Four Seasons Resort Nevis Celebrates Alexander Hamilton

Hamilton’s story may have begun on the small island of Nevis, but the impact he made in US history made him a household name. And this fall, Four Seasons Resort Nevis invites guests to take a walk through history as they experience the birthplace of one of the United States’ most notable Founding Fathers with the newly launched Alexander Hamilton package. Fans of the famed Hamilton musical may not realize that the Caribbean island the show refers to is the island of Nevis, but they will now have the opportunity to learn about where it all began for this young historical leader.

“Nevis might be a little unknown island at the edge of the Caribbean, but it’s filled with so much history,” says Yvette Thomas-Henry, Regional Vice President and General Manager. “Not much has changed with Charlestown since those times, so you can really feel the legacy of what once was when Hamilton was living on the island.”

With rates starting at USD 9,660 per night, the Alexander Hamilton package includes $1,000 per person Resort credit that can be used for a wide variety of dining, activities and experiences. A private rum pairing dinner, a movie night with dinner under the stars, an historical botanical tour with Guest Experience Director Mac Kee France, and an exclusive Hamilton-style portrait painting session for guests to take home are also a part of this historical experience.

Not only will guests get to experience a piece of Nevisian and American history with this package, but they’ll also get to stay in a suite inspired by and named after Nevis’ most famous native son. In the recently redesigned one-bedroom suite, the décor is light, clean and fresh,  while preserving the humble charm of Nevis with hints of Caribbean notes from the botanical wallpaper in the bedroom to the uniquely designed chairs that feature the island’s ambassador, the Green Vervet monkey. Guests will come to find that the 1,761 square foot suite is an inviting space ideal for entertaining—hosting family and friends for an intimate dinner around the table with seating for up to eight or unwinding outdoors on the expansive patio for a nightcap while enjoying the Caribbean breeze and sweet sounds of Nevis. 

Guests who have passed the four-day “Vacation in Place” period are also welcome to explore the island and visit the former Founding Father’s home. By reserving an island tour with a historical storyteller, guests can visit Hamilton’s birthplace, located just 10 minutes from the Resort in the heart of Charlestown. The two-story building overlooking the Charlestown Harbour is called the Hamilton House. It houses one of the island’s two museums on the first floor. The second floor is the meeting room for the Nevis House of Assembly. The stone building was built around 1680 but was destroyed in an earthquake in 1840 and restored in 1983. Hamilton’s original home is also located on the property after being restored due to the same earthquake. 

In addition to sharing the history of Alexander Hamilton in the Caribbean, the package will make a donation to the Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS foundation, an organization that helps provide groceries, medication and health care for those affected by HIV/AIDS, COVID-19 and other life-threatening illnesses.  

Far from “forgotten spot in the Caribbean” anymore, travellers to Nevis can walk in the footsteps of U.S. Founding Father Alexander Hamilton with a Spotify playlist curated by BELLOSOUND for guests on property to enjoy.

About Four Seasons Resort Nevis

Four Seasons Resort Nevis is located on the western coast of the Caribbean island of Nevis, sister island to St. Kitts, and the birthplace of U.S. Founding Father Alexander Hamilton. A place where love and harmony is ever-present, Nevis is a spirited and soulful haven, where both serenity and adventure can be pursued endlessly. Our island home is beaming with natural beauty, from the green summit of Nevis Peak, down to the sugar-soft sand of Pinney’s Beach. Play golf alongside the Green Vervet monkeys, dive into the sea to explore the nearby reefs, reconnect with nature at our serene Spa, or toast the colourful sunset as you dine on the water’s edge. With 189 spacious rooms and suites and more than 50 luxurious villas, the Resort has been delivering authentic Caribbean hospitality for more than 30 years. Whatever your preference, here in paradise, the opportunities for perfection are infinite.

HALL Wines in Napa Valley Heads to Guana Island (BVI)

Guana Island, the award-winning resort in the British Virgin Islands, is collaborating with renowned California wine brand, HALL Wines, to offer a three-day Wine Program from January 12 – 14, 2022. The program will bring some of HALL’s most celebrated vintages as well as its Director of Winemaking, Megan Gunderson, to Guana for a dynamic program for travelers and food- and wine-lovers alike.

The HALL team will work closely with Guana’s Executive Chef to prepare a program celebrating the flavors of the California wines alongside the island’s natural bounty. Director of Winemaking for HALL Wines, Megan Gunderson, will work with the culinary team to create special menu pairings inspired by the flavors of Guana. She will also personally pour wines from across the HALL Family Wine brands portfolio including HALL, WALT and BACA Wines, and be available to chat with guests about the brand’s extensive West Coast vineyards, and the winemaking process.

The Guana culinary team will be creating new menus for the program, pulling as many ingredients as possible from the island’s orchard, including fresh herbs, fruits, vegetables and microgreens. The four-acre orchard has been recently expanded to include three new greenhouses and is home to tropical fruits such as breadfruit, soursop, and papaya as well as more exotic items such as lemongrass and pomegranate. Guana guests also enjoy fresh fish from the surrounding waters, including grouper, yellowfin tuna and mahi-mahi.

The three-day program will kick off with a Beach BBQ pairing Caribbean-inspired flavors with WALT Wines, known for single vineyard Pinot Noirs, complemented by live music from a local band. The following day, Gunderson and Guana General Manager Jason du Plessis will host a formal al fresco dinner, offering tastes of some of the most celebrated bottles from the HALL wine collection, including the bold Cabernets for which they are known. Gunderson will be on-hand to personally discuss each vintage, guiding guests through an educational and flavorful evening. The program will conclude the following day, with a guided tour of the orchard and an invitation to try some lesser-known vintages, matching HALL Wines with just-picked produce and tropical fruits that are only found in the Caribbean.

HALL and WALT Wines offered during the immersive experience will be available to order throughout the program. As with all visits to Guana, meals and activities prepared as part of the wine program will be included in the cost of a room. Rates at Guana start at $890 per night.

ABOUT GUANA ISLAND

One of the few private islands in its part of the world, Guana remains the most unspoiled jewel of the British Virgin Islands. Our 850 acres, seven beaches, mountains, gardens, organic orchard, dozens of hiking trails, and even our flock of flamingos are the exclusive domain of a handful of guests for the duration of their stay.
