Chinese Laundry × JuneShine

By: Kai Yeo

Outstanding quality, unique designs, and an affordable price tag – our shoe choice for this season has got to be Chinese Laundry. With groundbreaking styles season after season, it is no surprise that this brand is also celebrity approvedBlake Lively and Miley Cyrus among the list – featuring trendy designs as well as refined classics perfect to transition from day to night. On Wednesday, we got to preview the new Chinese Laundry summer and fall collections at JuneShine, paired with hard kombucha and a floral arrangement session.

With the cutest balloon arch entrance set up, we were welcomed with hard kombucha and charcuterie boards along with the prettiest decorations. As I arrived ahead of time (in my Summer Rayva Sandals), I got the opportunity to mingle with the team and talk more about the current summer launch and upcoming fall collection, a mix of styles and trends ideal for today’s fashion-forward landscape.

If you’re new to Chinese Laundry, they have been in the shoes business since 1971. Growing to become a globally recognized fashion footwear distributor, the brand has now expanded into a family of four unique brands:

  • Chinese Laundry – Styles range from dress heels to casual flats, all designed to meet the season’s most desired trends
  • Dirty Laundry – Designed with edge in Los Angeles. Dirty Laundry is casual and vintage-inspired, with a twist of California rocker-cool. Iconic designs and bold silhouettes embody the brand’s timeless collection.
  • CL By Laundry – Responds to trends in the market and translates designs into affordable, easy-to-wear styles. The collection transitions seamlessly from work, weekend, and everything in between.
  • 42 Gold – Destined to elevate any look for the busy on-the-go woman. Indulge in luxury inspired designs without breaking the budget. Quality craftsmanship and versatile silhouettes are designed to meet the needs of a modern lifestyle. Jamie Chung collaborated with them in 2019 for a 12-piece shoe collection launch.

In the mini preview we saw, Chinese Laundry has proven to us yet again that their style is on point. Their new collection of shoes ranges from classic formal to trendy, offering a great array of styles. With so many options to choose from, you’ll be sure to find something you love for the next season! As more guests started to trickle in, we decided to look around the space and found the entire backroom filled with a gorgeous array of flowers – aided by florist Tess, we even got to make our own special denim bouquet.

With so many conversations and activities going on, it was time for some food and a second glass of kombucha. JuneShine is an all-natural, organic, gluten-free hard kombucha made from green tea and honey. The primary fermentation is done by pitching yeast and honey to create a probiotic kombucha, and more yeast and cane sugar is added during the secondary fermentation (which brings the kombucha to 6% alcohol). If the alcohol percentage is a little overwhelming for anyone, JuneShine also offers flights of three which allows you to get a little sampler of everything. They also serve good empanadas (chicken, beef, and caprese) and a really mean vegan pizza haute pocket. While there are no meal options, eating a couple of those empanadas will have you fuller than you expect!

By the end of the Summer Launch Party with Chinese Laundry, we had our bellies filled and hands busy with flowers, kombucha, shoes, and even a little gift bag filled with local and sustainable goodies such as stainless steel drinking straws and my personal favorite – Lotus and Luna bracelets. Discovering that Lotus and Luna takes pride in making accessories and committed to helping their Thai artisans escape the cycle of poverty by providing them a proper wage and housing made the gift bag from Chinese Laundry very special.

Knowing that Chinese Laundry is not just a one-stop shop for vegan and fashionable footwear but that they also support small socially responsible brands has just increased our love for this brand, and we can’t wait to style our new shoes!

Highlights: Grapefruit Paloma Kombucha, Chicken Empanadas, flower bouquets wrapped with sustainable denim, and of course, shoes!

Charles Tyrwhitt Business Casual Summer Collection

Charles Tyrwhitt Introduces New 2019 Business Casual Summer Collection

Premium Cotton, Linen and Eco-Friendly Lyocell Products Make it Easy for Men to Dress Well

Charles Tyrwhitt, a British menswear brand, today unveiled its 2019 Summer Collection with new business casual wardrobe essentials. Offering a range of products including shirts, suits, jackets, blazers, pants, shoes and accessories, Charles Tyrwhitt produces premium and affordable menswear with a touch of British style.

Now available in US retail stores and on CTShirts.com, Charles Tyrwhitt’s 2019 Summer Collection provides light and comfortable options that are both practical for warm weather and up to date with the latest in business style trends. The collection’s three core fabrics – Tyrwhitt Cool Cotton, wrinkle-resistant Linen, and eco-friendly Lyocell – provide comfort and flexibility in summer weather and feature a variety of products, including button-down shirts, jackets, pants and polos.

“Over the last 12 months, we’ve seen a steady increase in men embracing modern business casual as more organizations relax the traditional dress code, so this became a key focus for our 2019 Summer Collection,” said Spencer Riley, Head of Product Design for Charles Tyrwhitt. “Whether it’s the ‘Made in the Sun’ Italian Linen jacket, the breathable Tyrwhitt Cool shirts or the Lyocell performance pants, this collection is equally at home in the boardroom and at a rooftop bar, making it easy for men to dress well and keep cool.”

Tyrwhitt Cool shirts are made with new, innovative 100% cotton fabric specifically treated to wick away moisture for a cool, dry and comfortable feeling:

Soft-Washed Non-Iron Tyrwhitt Cool Shirt – This quick drying, lightweight and soft-to-the-touch shirt has Charles Tyrwhitt’s signature non-iron finish. In 100% cotton poplin fabric, the shirt is smooth and exceptionally breathable. Soft-washed for a relaxed, casual feel, it is available in both long and short sleeves. ($69.00)

Aircool Polo Shirt – A classic polo shirt with fabric-finishing technology to draw away moisture, it is knitted to a clean jacquard texture weave with natural stretch. Charles Tyrwhitt offers three vibrant summer colors with an updated collar for a clean aesthetic. ($55.00)

Charles Tyrwhitt linen products are soft and lightweight, while also allowing air flow to the body:

Italian Linen Jacket – This jacket is made from 100% linen, woven in Italy at solar-energy powered mill Nova Fields and tailored to a soft construction. Designed to look sharp with a relaxed fit, it is lightweight and breathable with its natural shoulder line and canvas. Available in Charles Tyrwhitt slim fit, the jacket comes in mid blue and olive. ($399.00)

Easy-Care Linen Pants – These pants have the cool, breezy benefits of linen with the added convenience of Charles Tyrwhitt’s easy-care finish – they are durable, easy to iron and have enhanced wrinkle recovery to maintain a clean and crease-free look. With a slim fit leg and pre-washed fabric for a soft feel and added comfort, these pants are permeable and highly absorbent, which allows moisture to evaporate quickly, providing a cool, airy feel. ($89.00)

The Business Casual Non-Iron Cotton Linen Shirt – Made from two of the most breathable fabrics – 76% cotton and 24% linen – these shirts are lightweight and woven specially to create natural stretch for perfect fit, comfort and movement. With a linen feel, the non-iron finish prevents wrinkles and is ready to wear after washing and hanging for a hassle-free morning routine. Styled with no front pocket and a softer collar lining, it is available in slim and extra slim fit and comes in white, blue, blue stripe and red stripe.($69.00)

New to the Charles Tyrwhitt collection, Lyocell is an eco-friendly fiber produced from wood pulp harvested from sustainably managed forest.

Natural Performance Pants – Made from a blend of cotton, lyocell and elastane for stretch, comfort and temperature regulation, the Natural Performance Pants are a business causal must-have. These pants are soft, durable and cut to a slimmer, more tapered fit for a refined, contemporary shape. A curved stretch waistband provides added comfort and ease of movement during wear, making them our most comfortable pants to date. ($119.00)

Tencel Linen Casual Shirt – Perfect for the summer months, these shirts are crafted from 100% natural fibers for breathability and a soft feel. The combination of Tencel and linen creates a casual shirt with a marvelous drape for both a sophisticated appearance and comfort. It is made up of 53% Tencel and 47% linen, making it less prone to creasing than pure linen or a cotton-linen blend. ($69.00)

Charles Tyrwhitt’s 2019 Summer Collection, full of quality menswear items at affordable prices and a hint of British charm, is available today. Imagery can be found here.

Rock House Sliders

By Krishan Narsinghani x Vaughn Lowery x McCellies Mason

As of late, Rock House Sliders Hollywood [RHSH] opened its doors to the American market and 360 Magazine had the grand opportunity to attend the soft opening. The restaurant is located at 7950 Sunset Boulevard in Hollywood. Parking is offered underneath the property until 9:00pm with validation.

RHSH originates from Kuwait, an Arab country on the Persian Gulf. Currently, the chain possesses ten locations within the Middle East. The company plans to expand to Santa Monica and Downtown Los Angeles. In the near future, they will privately deliver fresh hot food until 3:00am.

Upon entry, guests are embraced by friendly staff and instantly mesmorized by modern ambiance – open concept with floor-to-ceiling windows and white walls. The furniture is ergonomically trendy and transforms the venue from traditional dine-in to a pet friendly hotspot. The menu was formulated by a consultant chef serving Angus beef and grass-fed cow alongside of vegan options.

The restaurant serves six mouth-watering 2oz juicy burgers. Listed include: Original Rocker, Original Chicken, Spicy Chicken, Boston Mushroom, Chipotle BBQ Ranch and Kick My Boss. Prices vary from $2.89 to $3.89 and are coupled with tantalizing sides of french fries (w/o cheese), hand breaded onion rings, hand breaded buffalo tenders and cheddar tots. The Original Crispy Chicken Sandwich is perfectly crafted for a savory and succulent bite.

The ‘Messy Fries’ (reminscent of tangy nachos at one of your favorite cantinas) was the 360 team’s personal favorite – topped with relish, jalapeños, cheddar cheese, thousand island and beef bacon bits. All sides perfectly pair with their in-house made sauces. For dessert, cool off with some of their signature Black Ice Cream or one of their delicious all-natural milkshakes.

Tyler Florence & Cooper’s Hawk

Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants, a lifestyle brand centered around food and wine, has announced their second wine collaboration with Chef Tyler Florence: a Sauvignon Blanc. The blend is a labor of love between Cooper’s Hawk winemaker Rob Warren and the Food Network host, author, restaurateur and winemaker, Tyler Florence. The collaboration wine is a limited production blend made for the company’s 300,000-plus Wine Club and is positioned as July’s “Wine of the Month”. While the wine debuted at a members-only Wine Club dinner hosted by Florence in Naples, Florida on June 20th, restaurant guests can sample the blend by the glass in the dining and tasting rooms throughout the month of July in any of Cooper’s Hawk 32 restaurants.
“Collaborating with the very best chefs and winemakers not only elevates the Cooper’s Hawk brand, but raises the bar for the entire hospitality industry,” says Cooper’s Hawk Founder & CEO Tim McEnery. “Working with Tyler on our second wine collaboration has been one of the most educational experiences to date. His curious palate and deep knowledge of wine helped create an exceptional Sauvignon Blanc.”
Over the past twelve years, Florence has added several wine awards to his list of accomplishments, scoring in the 90s with Wine Spectator and Wine Enthusiast. Tyler is also a top-selling author of 12 cookbooks and proprietor of two acclaimed restaurants.
I am laser-focused on creating exciting flavor profiles, so wine was a natural next step for me a decade ago,”says Florence. “The Cooper’s Hawk philosophy of blending brings great freedom to the world of winemaking and allows them to move with the trends. We used grapes from Monterey County to create a wine with aromas of lemon, orange, melon, grass, grapefruit and gooseberry with whimsical tropical flavors like guava, kiwi and passion fruit. The finish is crisp and loaded with green apple and citrus fruit.”
Cooper’s Hawk continues to push the boundaries of experiential branding by sharing the excitement that comes from collaborating with culinary and wine luminaries like Florence, and many others including Francis Ford Coppola Winery, Jean Charles Boisset (Boisset Collection), Richard Blais, Anne Burrell and many others.
