ASOS X URBAN REVIVO COLOR POP COLLECTION via LEPR for use by 360 MAGAZINE

ASOS × Urban Revivo

Urban Revivo (UR), the ultimate playground for the fashion lover offering womenswear and menswear for every occasion, is pleased to announce its latest collab in partnership with renowned global retailer ASOS, titled Color Pop. 

The latest release of vibrant, colorful items take inspiration from the popularity of TV series like Euphoria and Gossip Girlshows that have defined the new generation of stylish individualists andthe latest trends in clothing – often reflecting mid-aughts minimalism and pop star studded red carpets. The collection aims to bring to life the dramatic effect of innovative cinematography through silhouette, light, and shadow, rendered with the lively color palette of spring and summer. 

The seasonal collection will contain two capsules – Plain and Print. The Plain selection retains solid color gradients, often shown color blocked in contrasting colors, and characterized by unique material fabrication such as tweed, organza and knitted fringe. Bold construction techniques also make an appearance throughout the range such as clipping and carving, crochet, and cut out detailing. Meanwhile, the Print selection features bold and vibrant prints such as fluorescent ombre, oversized florals, abstract waves, and printed organza. 

Color Pop makes it easy for anyone to infuse a bit of summer fun into their everyday wardrobe, encouraging shoppers to dress a little more boldly as the summer heats up. Colorful matching sets like a coordinating tweed crop top and matching skirt, alongside a coordinating tweed short sleeve blazer and mini dress with cut outs at the waistline stun in a green check print, while a knitted cami mini dress in pink creates visual appeal through a contrasting bright abstract color blocked print. 

A solid pink cinched-waist mini shirt dress and solid asymmetric neck cami mini dress in blue lend a bright pop to a summer wardrobe, while a groovy blue floral print halter neck mini dress’s psychedelic gradient is ideal for outdoor concerts on warm summer evenings.  Other standout looks in the collection include a maxi dress with cut-out sides features a pink swirl pattern atop a washed pink base – a print that is carried over onto a knitted midi-skirt. 

“As we welcome summer and the season of parties, weddings, and sunshine, we thought it was the perfect time to introduce this fun and vibrant collection,” says the Urban Revivo design team about the collaborative offering. “ASOS is an excellent platform for this collaboration with the fresh energy it exudes as a brand and we have always felt extremely aligned on our missions to give our shoppers the freedom to express themselves through fashion.” 

As with all UR collections, Color Pop offers a fresh take on the latest trends for the modern shopper who doesn’t want to break the bank. From uptown to downtown, and city to suburb, UR has been the go-to destination for fashion-lovers around the globe for over a decade.  No matter the occasion, UR aims to have you covered, providing a wide range of looks ideal for the office, a night on the town, a cozy night in, and everything in between. The brand covers every category for women and men including outerwear, knitwear, tweeds, dresses, tops, bottoms, denim, footwear, handbags and other accessories.

Dolce Gabbana × Jujutsu Kaisen Anime Capsule Collection in 360 MAGAZINE

DG ANIME

DOLCE&GABBANA X JUJUTSU KAISEN

Innovation, Made in Italy and the Japanese culture meet in the new Dolce&Gabbana x Jujutsu Kaisen Special Collection, creating new synergies between art and style.

The Jujutsu Kaisen universe, which became highly popular in Japanese culture, has inspired Dolce&Gabbana in the creation of a new – yet coherent with the brand’s DNA – Special Collection. Dolce&Gabbana’s vision meets the Japanese creative universe, from the Mix&Match to the street style aesthetics of many vibrant and contemporary districts of Tokyo, among which Shibuya and Harajuku. The seemingly distant creative universes of sartorial excellence and pop culture, intertwine uniquely in this Collection, introducing a new form of beauty. Symbols and stylistic elements, that can be traced back to the identities of the various characters, are translated into garments and accessories with a strong personality.

The Collection introduces a special no gender aesthetic: cotton and jersey T-shirts and sweatshirts are combined with nylon jackets. All personalized with screen printing, digital 3D prints and ideograms, symbols of the Japanese universe. All these elements create tactile games and a three-dimensional thickness. The art of anime and the innovative spirit of the younger generations talk with the Italian manufacturing tradition.

The Collection creates new links between fashion and art, culture and lifestyle. The Dolce&Gabbana x Jujutsu Kaisen Special Collection will be available in selected boutiques in Japan starting end of April.

Brett Kissel × 98° – Ain’t the Same

Fans of country and pop music alike are in luck: platinum-selling country artist Brett Kissel has released a new single in collaboration with pop and R&B vocal group 98°, titled “Ain’t the Same.” The track is available on all streaming platforms. Listen HERE.  

The upbeat song tells the story of a narrator professing his feelings to the love of his life, explaining that life “ain’t the same” without her. The track also features a clever chorus that parallels the narrator’s relationship and famous pairings that just aren’t quite right when not together. With vivid lyrics such as “the beach ain’t the same without the sun / Coke ain’t the same without the rum / Vegas needs them neon lights / tequila needs that lime,” the song puts a fresh, lighthearted spin on the concept of finding one’s perfect match.

Kissel felt inspired to write the song for his wife, Cecilia, alongside co-writers Karen Kosowski and Tim Nichols. He explained, “We kept landing on how much sweeter everything is when we get to experience life’s gifts with the people we cherish most… and, how things just ‘Ain’t the Same’ if you’re missing the key ingredient. For me, that’s my wife Cecilia, who was the inspiration for the song.”

“Ain’t the Same” also offers a unique blend of pop and modern country. The single highlights Kissel’s warm, rich vocals and ability to express emotions with his music. Kissel’s voice, paired with the infectious harmonies of 98°, works together to convey the joy of spending life with that particular person.

Kissel described his excitement for working with the group, explaining, “98° is such an iconic group, and the fact that they are making their first foray into the country music space with me is such an honor. They’ve collaborated and had massive hits with legends like Mariah Carey and Stevie Wonder, so to work with them on this project and have a blast with them in-studio and on our video shoot in LA… it’s the coolest thing.”

About 98°

98° has sold over 10 million records worldwide and achieved eight top 40 singles in the U.S. From the late 90s to the early ‘00s, the group reached top-five on the Billboard Hot 100 with the songs “Give Me Just One Night (Una Noche),” “Because of You,” “The Hardest Thing” and collaborated with the great Stevie Wonder on the hit “Thank God I Found You” (with Mariah Carey and Joe) as featured artists. “Ain’t The Same” marks 98°‘s first foray into Country Music and comes on the heels of their 25th career Anniversary Year.

Reebok × Power Rangers

Reebok, in partnership with Hasbro, debuts a second Reebok x Power Rangers collection. The line follows the original Reebok x Power Rangers drop, which launched in June 2021, that was inspired by the original Mighty Morphin Power Rangers television series of the 1990s.

Reebok and Hasbro highlighted some of the most popular Mighty Morphin characters in the original Power Rangers show with the first collection. This new capsule collection shines a light on some of the most formidable villains featured throughout the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers show. Drawing inspiration from characters including Rita Repulsa, Lord Zedd, and Rito Revolto, this line brings to life some of the Power Rangers’ most worthy adversaries.

Footwear featured in the second Reebok x Power Rangers line include:

  • Instapump Fury “Rita Repulsa” ($200 | GW0782) – This Instapump Fury features all of Rita Repulsa’s signature markings from the icon on the pump ball representing Rita’s staff, to the bands on the tongue resembling Rita’s headband. Rita’s influence even seeps into the materials with pony hair featured on the heel cup to emulate Rita’s headware.
  • Hurrikaze II Low “Rito Revolto” ($140 | GY5928) – The upper of this Kamikaze II Low makes the shoe instantly recognizable as Rito Revolto as the neutral upper represents Rito’s bones and the camo application on the medial side suede resembles Rito’s outfit. Other warnings that this shoe is for villains only is that the sneaker’s tongue includes the Evil Space Alien callout on the right side and the “Danger Ranger” skull and crossbones on the left side.
  • Answer IV “Lord Zedd” ($170 | GZ6897) – Lord Zedd takes over this Answer IV with a red, rippled upper that resembles Lord Zedd’s body, silver overlays that nod to Lord Zedd’s armor and a blue tube along the lateral side which mimics Lord Zedd’s tubes. The villain even shows up on the outsole where Iverson’s face would typically be on this classic basketball silhouette.

Beyond the details above, each footwear silhouette contains a sockliner that marks signature moments or features of each character the shoe is inspired by. For example, the Answer IV Lord Zedd sockliner incorporates images of the ingredients in Rita Repulsa’s love potion that she used on Lord Zedd. Each shoe also comes in specialized packaging unique to its character, from the Instapump Fury Rita Repulsa’s “Rita’s Moon Dumpster” box to Lord Zedd’s box inspired by the Angel Grove Community Center.

Completing the collection are five pieces of apparel, including one hoodie, one long sleeve tee and three t-shirts. The hoodie is inspired by the Megazord‘s transformation and incorporates a hand-drawn Megazord emblem in the center graphic on the back of the piece. The long sleeve tee embodies the Green Ranger and features several details representative of the character, from his alias, Thomas

“Tommy” Oliver, to his “Dragon Dagger.” Finally, the three t-shirts are all in the style of retro arcade graphics and showcase both the heroes and villains of the Power Rangers franchise.

This Reebok x Power Rangers collection will be available in unisex sizing HERE beginning March 25th.Power Rangers is celebrating 29 continuous years on the air, making it one of the longest- running kids’ live-action series in television history, with more than 900 episodes aired to date. Created by Haim Saban and launched in 1993 with Mighty Morphin Power Rangers, the series celebrates its 29th overall season with a new season of Power Rangers Dino Fury, airing now exclusively on Netflix in the U.S.

DEFENDERS: BEYOND

Al Ewing and Javier Rodríguez team up once again after their successful collaboration on DEFENDERS: THERE ARE NO RULES with a brand-new venture coming this June. The upcoming DEFENDERS: BEYOND edition comes from a new perspective still sporting legendary characters. Both Ewing and Rodríguez revolutionize the Marvel Universe like we’ve never seen it before.

The story begins with Doctor Strange as he sets out a warning from beyond the grave. Blue Marvel, America Chavez, Tigra and more icons must team to together to protect the universe from peril. Traveling through new elevations of space and time, they must work together to overcome conflict that has not yet been seen in the Marvel Universe so far.

Ewing raved about the upcoming collab with Rodríguez, stating, “It’s great to be co-storytelling with Javier again on another DEFENDERS book – he’s more than an artist, he’s the other half of the equation. There’s no DEFENDERS without him. And of course, we had to go even bigger – so in this book, we’re going on a magical journey into the Mystery itself, mapping the Marvel Godhead and bringing back knowledge that ties into what has gone before, some seismic things to come… and if we’re lucky, maybe a little off-the-page magic to feed your hungry head.

“We’ve got an eclectic new crew of Defenders chosen for the task by the final spell of Stephen Strange – I’m saying what’s probably a final goodbye to a lot of stuff from the past ten years with this one, and for at least one character, this will be the last adventure. Hope you survive the psychedelic experience, pilgrim!”

Rodríguez, too, spoke about the upcoming joint effort on the brand new edition, stating, “Al Ewing is like a wizard that opens doors to the greatest ‘larger than life’ stories you could imagine. He could take you through the most cosmic and spectacular passages of the Marvel Universe.

“And at the same time, he cares about each of the characters on the team, their lives, their particular problems so that you worry about them. And I have a lot of fun translating that to images. Those are the reasons that I’m so happy to get back to THE DEFENDERS.”

Tune in to the newest issue of DEFENDERS when it drops on June 16. For more information, visit Marvel.com.

12on12 × Swizz Beats – ‘Long Live Jazz’

This February we see the creative vinyl company known as 12on12 and record producer Swizz Beatz joined forces to build their latest vinyl phenomena, ‘Long Live Jazz.’ Pre-order HERE.

Known for their unique and fresh outlet for music consumption, 12on12 elevates themselves in this new partnership with Swizz Beats. For this special bespoke collectors’ edition project, Swizz compiled a set of hand-picked tracks that represent his own passion for the genre of jazz music.

Throughout the collection, we are taken through a listening experience full of rich, historical jazz greats like Miles Davies and Kenny Dorham. We even see modern, jazzed renditions of modern pop hits from artists like The Weeknd revised by the upcoming jazz artists of today, such as Immanuel Wilkins.

The 12” vinyl record art showcases images from Swizz’s personal compilation (The Dean Collection). The cover record art was shot by Kwame Brathwaite in New York during a 1968 Garvey Day Celebration. Brathwaite is known for his extensive work in the realm of jazz, having been a co-founder of the African Jazz Arts Society and Studios (AJASS), and is renowned for photographing stars like Stevie Wonder and Bob Marley, as well as jazz icons Miles Davies and John Coltrane.

Swizz Beats spoke on this project, stating, “Jazz has always been magic to our ears. I feel like it should definitely get more attention! This is the first step to pay homage to the great craft & art. Photography is also one of the best expressions of art and should be shown more often. Art & Music are brothers and sisters so I thought it was a great match. I’m a big fan of Kwame and I also love I’m able to share pieces from my collection through music!”

Claudia Moross, founder and chief of 12on12, too, raved about the collaboration, stating, “Our goal is to create transcending experiences through music and art, the combination of playing the record while exploring the thoughtfully curated artwork commissioned for the sleeve allows for a precious moment of cultural enjoyment. 12on12’s are very much pieces of art that can be collected and treasured.

“With Swizz’s finger on the pulse and his well-documented history within music and art, the brand will be upping the ante as we look to work with the very best artists, both visual and musical, to curate future Vinylworks. I am really looking forward to the next chapter for 12on12 and with the expertise and passion Swizz Beatz brings to the table I’m really excited for what’s to come for the brand.”

12on12, too, worked with Vinyl Me, Please (VMP) for the delivery of ‘Long Live Jazz.’ VMP is a critical link in the world of vinyl as they work to produce vinyl packages. In 2022, they are expected to ship 800,000 vinyl records, observing the true affect of music on the world.

Claudia Moross added more insight on this, saying, “12on12’s partnership with Vinyl Me, Please gives us the opportunity to reach a large, dedicated base of avid music and visual media fans who might enjoy our unique Vinylworks.”

12AM × Tyla Yaweh × Pressa – Showgirls

LA-by-way-of-Toronto artist on the rise 12AM (aka Matthew Dubois) bursts into 2022 with a bang, linking up with Tyla Yaweh and Pressa for new heat “Showgirls” out now via Sony Music Entertainment Canada.

12AM revealed the official video directed by Logan Meis (Trippie Redd, Dax, The Kid Laroi, Polo G). It’s a high contrast, moody, and cinematic experience in itself. “Showgirls” peeks into a late-night burlesque show gone awry. The night manifests into a master scheme of kidnapping, robbery, and murder. While corrupt wealthy men put their guard down for some debauchery, they’re clipped of their wallets and prized possessions. The lights go off and the show concludes, leaving the club patrons in the dust. In the end, 12AM (aka the club owner) and the showgirls meet Tyla and Pressa (12AM and the showgirls’ partners in crime) at the hideout. Watch now HERE.

The single follows the success of “come over,” the lead track from 12AM‘s latest After Midnight EP that has amassed over 5 million streams. While After Midnight served as a redefinition of 12AM’s sound, “Showgirls” takes 12AM back to his Toronto roots incorporating melodic R&B that is distinct to the 6. Additionally, with 12AM boasting over 26 million streams on Spotify alone, plus Tyla and Pressa’s combined 5.5 million monthly listeners on the platform, “Showgirls” is set to become an instant hit and reach an array of hip-hop, pop, and R&B lovers. 

12AM states, “Tyla and I were working on his album in his crib for like 2 weeks straight. I was basically living there and I played him music I was working on. When he heard the hook on Showgirls, he instantly hopped on it. There were a ton of people over and everyone was going crazy over it. Then a year later, I was in the studio with Pressa. Same story, he heard the song and instantly hopped on it too, so we knew we had one when everybody had the same reaction like “this is a hit.'” On his upcoming music, 12AM adds, “I wanted to treat my upcoming album like a full body of work, no fillers, just the best music possible. I’m spending time creating an experience and a world through the next record.”

The future looks incredibly bright and 12AM’s repertoire is only at its inception. Prolific in his dexterity, 12AM is consistently writing for other artists as well as himself. He can be seen frequently working with Elijah Woods and Omer Fedi (Kid Laroi “Without You,” 24kGoldn & Iann Dior “Mood,” and Lil Nas X “Montero”), and on After Midnight he collaborated with TheHxliday on “Voices.” Touring accolades include shows with Internet Money, Iann Dior, Jez Dior, 24kGoldn, Jutes, Trevor Daniel, and Souly Had. No stranger to media coverage and acclaim from tastemakers, praise has rolled in from industry key players such as Complex, Elevator Mag, idolator, Lyrical Lemonade, and Vice’s Noisey. 12AM also appears on Spotify’s coveted ‘New Music Friday’ and ‘tear drop’ playlists, as well as Post Malone’s ‘posty’s playlist.’

Reflecting on his work, 12AM says, “My main focus is just to help people. That’s why I make music. When I get messages from fans saying I’ve helped them through depression or whatever they are going through it means the world to me, I can’t really believe it. That’s what I do this for. Whenever I play a show and fans are singing the lyrics back and when they meet me after the show, I just want to have a positive impact and be there for them, because they are all that matters in this music industry.”
