Louis Vuitton in Miami’s Design District

Louis Vuitton’s Spring-Summer 2021 Men’s Collection debuts in North America as part of a multi-faceted installation in Miami’s Design District on December 4th. The Temporary Residency showcases the collection within the lively universe of The Adventures of Zoooom with Friends, a fantastical crew of characters conceptualized by Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh, on a raucous international voyage representing the fundamental belief in inclusivity at the core of the House’s approach to Menswear.

First introduced at the 2020 Digital Fashion Week in Paris, Zoooom with Friends took the establishment by storm with their joyfully animated escapades throughout the city. Soon reborn in Shanghai and Tokyo as gigantic balloons, Zoooom with Friends has now embarked on a global adventure, celebrating the House’s spirit of travel. Miami is their first-ever stop in North America. Guests at Jungle Plaza will navigate an engaging outdoor environment featuring the Zoooomies’ larger-than-life balloon figures positioned amongst their bespoke shipping containers, alongside delightfully irreverent sculptures.

The Louis Vuitton Men’s Temporary Residency at Miami Design District will also feature a custom Augmented Reality experience. Quick Response codes displayed on the containers will activate via SnapChat, allowing guests to interact with the Zoooomies’ animated incarnations, while generating their own unique and shareable content.

Making its first-ever appearance in North American at Louis Vuitton Men’s Temporary Residency at Miami Design District, the Spring-Summer 2021 Men’s Collection is founded in four methods of upcycling: new looks made from recycled material, looks repeated from the Fall-Winter 2020 collection, looks freely created by the studio during the lockdown using recycled material, and new looks created from existing ideas.

The Temporary Residency will offer clients the opportunity to pre-order the designs in advance of the launch in Louis Vuitton stores worldwide. In addition to the Spring-Summer 2021 Men’s Collection preview, guests will discover a full suite of menswear moments from Men’s Artistic Director Virgil Abloh, including the second LV2054 Capsule Collection—a performance-inspired technical line-—making its international debut. This season, LV2054 clarifies its message and extends its reach in a multi-climactic collection derived from methods used in professional skiwear.

The Bachelorette X Randi Rahm

Bachelor Tuesday is here and the fashion is just as good as the drama. Randi Rahm has handmade a beautiful tone-on-tone, olivine, khaki dress that was handpicked by Tayshia Adams. Adams is the New Babe of The Bachelorette! 

This sensual, body-bearing dress with criss-cross satin straps in a halter neckline, which holds the barely-there cut-out bodice, showcases the sexiness that is the show. The stunning fabric hangs off of Adams in all the right ways. 

The gown was hand-beaded in metallic beads and hand sewed from two cut khaki creating a stunning gown. The piece was envisioned inside the fashionable walls of Randi Rahm’s Manhattan Atelier. The dress took over 280 man-hours to make inside the Atelier. 

The color of the dress complimented Tayshia’s complexion so perfectly and truly lets her shine. Her figure is beautifully extenuated in all the right places like the dress was made for her. The Raquel style is one of Randi’s most signature couture designs which makes it that much more exciting to see such an iconic look on the silver screen for such an iconic debut.   

Randi Rahm is here to fashionably guide viewers through Tayshia Adam’s takeover of The Bachelorette as she struts her stuff in Randi Rahm Couture! For the next eight weeks, Randi Rahm’s designs will be seen on the silver screen. From red-carpet to ready-to-wear looks, this season of The Bachelorette is as dramatic in style as it is in surprises. Rahm’s designs have been seen on each premiere and finale of The Bachelorette for the past five years.  

Rahm is an internationally lauded fine haute couture artist, whose signature timeless gowns and suits have been gracing red carpets, magazine covers, and stages for almost three decades. 

Rahm has been dressing Hollywood icons, Broadway leads, elegant brides, and power women and men across the globe. She has worked with celebrities such as Beyoncé, Carrie Underwood, Miranda Lambert, Billy Porter, Eva Longoria, Mariah Carey, Christina Aguilera, and many more.

Tayshia’s official takeover in the Raquel Gown from Randi Rahm Couture will debut Tuesday, November 10, on ABC.

All looks available for purchase at www.randirahm.com or by emailing sales@randirahm.com. Randi Rahm can be followed on Instagram, @randirahm and on Facebook, Randi Rahm Studio

30th Anniversary Fresh Prince Collection

By Hannah DiPilato

The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air, the beloved classic, is celebrating its thirtieth anniversary with a fresh new line of streetwear. The collection includes clothing that showcases the nostalgic era of the nineties with bold and colorful designs. Inspired by the show, this collection will transport you back in time. 

This unisex collection offers a variety of shirts, pants, jackets, and accessories all with different fun and unique patterns. You can even get your hands on a Fresh Prince facemask to stay safe in style – which is one of 360 MAGAZINE’s favorites in the line. The clothing and accessories range from $15 to $200 so everyone can find something fresh to rock. 

Some highlights of the line include a bright, blue varsity jacket that says “Fresh” across the front, perfect for channeling the energy of the Bel-Air Academy halls. There is also a color block t-shirt and sweatpant set that combines the fashion of the ‘90s with a common 2020 streetwear style. 

There is even a limited edition crate series for $55 that comes with a ‘90s graphic tee, a pair of logo socks, a graffiti print beach towel, an exclusive air freshener, and a license plate enamel pin. You can choose the three crate option to get two more crates of similar goods to be shipped in October and December. If you buy the three crate plan you receive a free ornament to keep the swag going into the holiday season. 

This “Who God Da Jazz?” collection was inspired by the prince, Will Smith, and DJ Jazzy Jeff, his music partner. This is the second collection featured on the website, the first being “Frressh Essentials.”

DJ Jazzy Jeff commented on the excitement of the collection in a press release by Chantel Muentes at Berk Communications. “Very rarely do television programs have such a significant cultural impact 30 years after its release, but to generate this type of excitement in 2020 is really a testament to the fans,” Jeff said. “This is really a celebration of a legacy and it’s incredible watching the series evolve into a fashion brand and influence an entirely new generation.” 

Along with the clothing collection, Will Smith announced on his Instagram that a “real Banks family reunion is comin’ soon” and will be available on the new streaming service HBO Max.

This reunion isn’t the only premiere fans are anticipating. According to a youtube video posted by Smith he “closed the deal with Peacock with an unprecedented two-season order” that will reboot “Fresh Prince.” A fan of the show, Morgan Cooper, created a viral video in 2019 that showed the potential of a reboot. He will write and direct the reboot and Smith will be present as an executive producer along with a few others.

This line is perfect to get a fresh style just in time for fall. With the release of both the reunion and reboot coming soon, this is the perfect time to splurge on merchandise and channel your inner fresh prince. Although the style of the ‘90s has never truly faded from fashion, it’s making a full-force comeback with these unique streetwear styles.

Facts About Fake Louis Vuitton Bags

A lot has been said about fake Louis Vuittons on the internet. Although many wouA lot has been said about fake Louis Vuittons on the internet. Although many would argue that buying knockoffs rips the big and well-established designers’ companies, not everyone buys their idea. Everyone out there is sharing their thoughts and experiences with faux Louis Vuitton. Why don’t we share ours also? After all, everyone has something they could share about fashion, looks, and the attires they prefer.

It’s the 21st-century girls, we all want to have a say in whatever interests us. How It’s the 21st-century girls, we all want to have a say in whatever interests us. How funny is it that people always wonder if they can afford the so-called fashion world luxuries? People out here are faking it until they make it, others still, going legit and spending wholesome amounts of cash for mere authenticity. You know what? As long as we all rock with what suits our interests and meets our needs, no one cares about the Louis Vuitton fake merchandise or authenticity of what we have on us.

Many women often find themselves in a trance of either going with the brand or just settling with quality. It’s no doubt that many startups in this competitive and crowded fashion industry find it hard to play in the big leagues with the presence of Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Channel, Gucci, Tommy, and other globally admired Designers. The truth of the matter is that even those small startups make just as competitive products as the top dogs in this market. However, they only lack the big brand name.

Quality is one thing to consider, a name is another thing to dwell on. Furthermore, no one wants to drain their credit cards for goods they would otherwise spend less for and more so for the same quality. Just so you don’t find me biased my lovely girls, I’ll share with you what most people want to know about faux Louis Vuitton products. Especially about the handbags ladies!

Being a fashion fanatic, I will admit to having bought knockoffs and also genuine labels too. This gives me a first-hand experience in both worlds. A pair of beige Kalu accompanied by a Louis Vuitton purse, plus a pair of some worthy karats necklace around your neck is always better than just a new Gucci clutch bag with some old outdated jewelry.

On the other hand, an authentic Louis Vuitton handbag is always more luxurious and prestigious than some two Balenciaga and Tommy mirror image replicas. Standards need to be set right also! A statement has to be made from the toe to the hat darlings. So as we pick our poisons, we should do so diligently.

Do luxury and trending fashions need to always be expensive? Well, diving in on this subject matter, let’s discuss some of the pros and cons of purchasing fake Louis Vuitton.

Pros Of Fake Louis Vuitton

They say every cloud has a silver writing, and so do replicas. Just because the big Designer outlets discourage buying knockoffs, does not mean that we, as the Fashion fanatics can’t enjoy an elegant, luxurious and glamorous appearance for just less than those overpriced designer products in the market as well. Kicking us off on the pros of purchasing replica handbags, personally over the years I have felt that:

Affordability

A majority of ladies out here want to rock on everything they put on, from the dress, they pick, to the shoes on their rack, the necklace, belt, and any other coveted accessories a lady would kill for. Buying all these at a go can be quite costly too.

With replicas, our help arrives! At just half the prices of the authentic Saint Laurent, we can have 1:1 mirrored replica of the handbag. The replicas can match the quality, design, and the make, and even better, they could be customized to my satisfaction, at the same time-saving cash for other items and maybe even now an authentic Stella McCartney blouse, plus Tiffany & Co jewelry. That luxurious coveted look that was for a select group of ladies with a lot of money to blow only now becomes available for us all to enjoy with them.

Compliments, Status & Standards

We all agree that it feels good when people compliment us for the outfit we choose to put on. Walking with your friends from the mall and flushing out your Replica Gucci handbag, earns you the same respect and status given to the celebrities rocking on them labels on social Medias too.

I don’t why, but there is that a little boost of ego and self-esteem when everyone’s all over your purse, admiring the make and design. Often, very few people can discern between a genuine Designer product and its mirrored replica. Especially if you, by yourself, already know how the authentic ones are.

The association of owning a very highly-priced designer item in the market gives us the satisfaction of prestige, status, and raising our standards a bit. Of course, if we know how to get the knock off item, and we also know the ins and outs of the authentic one and would maybe purchase it if possible.

Branding the big Designer Labels

Come to think of it, the big designer labels are beneficiaries of the knock offs as well. This is why: From the book “The Knockoff Economy” by Kal Raustiala & Christopher Springman, the authors argue that a knockoff item boosts the brands and even sells the Designer products in the market. They further argue that replicas help in brand awareness of authentic accessories. 

Playing the role of a “Trial Run,” the knock offs eventually pave way for the authentic items. They further statistically estimate that about 40% of those who purchase knock offs as their trial runs eventually go for the real deal, depending on the compliments and opinions they get while having the replicas. Think of it as the knock offs in the long run just advertise the genuine Designers’ handbags.

As others would still argue that purchasing knockoff Louis Vuitton takes away business from the big brands, this does not affect their target customers at all. As for the majority of people who purchase knockoffs comfortably, the thought of spending more just for the brand has never crossed them. In the end, these ladies just end up marketing the real products for the label companies.

Supporting local skills, talents and Small startups

Fashion and design always go hand in hand, girls. They are inseparable. Just because an upcoming designer lacks a well-established platform like the Gucci, Vuitton, Polo, Chanel, or Balenciaga does not mean that they lack the skillset and craftsmanship applied by the big labels out here.

Given a chance, I am sure that most of these upcoming designers would even give stiffer competition in the market place than there already is. However, as everyone runs for those top dollar labels, the promising and creative startups are left unnoticed.

This raw talent and skillset can better be supported by purchasing their 1:1 mirrored replicas of the authentic top dollar designer bags. There is no greater fulfillment in life than the feeling of helping someone find their way in a competitive and crowded fashion world.

Co-Designing your Handbags

One particular thing I love with replicas is that I get to co-design the bag I specifically order from the replica stores. I always get to approve the replica design sent to me before they manufacture and ship my order. The most amazing part is that all my bags always arrive in the way I desired them to be. This is a priceless adventure, darlings. Indeed the replica market is a god sent haven for us. 

Making a statement from what you wear doesn’t have to cost you a fortune anymore. All these quality and branding businesses out here got us covered and still save our credit cards. Quality, durability, top grade leather, and excellent replication are all served, but not from a silver platter anymore.

Cons Of Louis Vuitton Fake Merchandises

With all the pros of faux Louis Vuitton, I doubt if you can be able to draw the line on the cons. But since most of you ladies have had some disappointment along the way before meeting your perfect Replica store, I doubt if we can miss a few. Well maybe from the usual stereotypes we could say:

Poor Quality and Craftsmanship

When I first decided to get a replica Louis Vuitton clutch bag for an event I was to attend. I hassled to get the best quality. In this crowded fashion world, most replicas, I admit, never meet the standards. But of course, these are for the people who don’t want to put in the extra effort and impress their customers.

Some replicas out there are poorly done for sure, from stitching to the quality of the leather used. At times, with the wrong store, you will also get the wrong products and eventually an unworthy experience at the end. For example, you need to know about the authentic Saint Laurent first before going for its replica for quality assurance girls.

Shipment Process

It can be disappointing to wait for your Louis Vuitton handbag up to the last minute only for you to be disappointed by the delayed arrival. This could be somewhat annoying, I know. 

The trick I’ve used over the years is to always order my bags in due time. Most of my friends have had to attend an invite-only event on borrowed purses and accessories just because their order never arrived on time. With the best Replica stores, the threshold time has been taken to ensure that quality and satisfaction have been met. If this has never happened to you, the frustration is devastating. Believe me.

Mode of Payment

Well, most of the online stores accept payments through PayPal. Most of the online transactions are done via PayPal. It’s somehow convenient, right?

The disappointing part is, the PayPal payment policy is restricted to authentic top labels products only. With Replicas, the mode of payment has only ended up being done with Western Union. PayPal’s replica business policy limits this payment option nonetheless.

Wear and Tear

As Louis Vuitton replicas are not as authentic as the legit Chanel or Balenciaga Designers, they are prone to wear more than the real ones. What stays forever anyway? Nothing does. But, unlike the long-lasting and durable Louis Vuitton and Saint Laurent, replicas never 100% match their durability by 100%. 

Ethical Issues Of Buying Fake Louis Vuitton

Some European countries deem the Replica business illegal. To a larger extent, Gucci and Louis Vuitton Fashion houses do crackdowns for their counterfeited accessories. Research suggests:

“In 2010, Louis Vuitton initiated 10,673 raids and 30,171 anti-counterfeiting procedures worldwide, resulting in the seizure of thousands of counterfeit products and the breaking up of criminal networks.”

But some countries including the USA have no issues with replicated goods as long as the consumer is fully aware that it is a replica they are purchasing and not being scammed for the real deal.

Well, we as consumers know what’s best for us always. We cannot allow these advertisement companies to make us spend a wholesome amount of money while we all know we only want to appear all flashy. We can have both the brand and quality for even less than you know. With the right fake Louis Vuitton store, we can have all we’ve ever wanted and at the right price my fellow beloved friends.
