PRADA NFT TWO

PRADA DROPS SECOND TIMECAPSULE NFT AFTER SELLOUT DEBUT

● Released on July 7 2022, Prada will unveil its latest monthly Timecapsule Collection drop, accompanied with a gifted NFT

● July’s Timecapsule item is made from upcycled fabrics from the Prada archives

Prada announces the release of its second Timecapsule NFT Collection, which is linked to both a gender-neutral physical product and a gifted NFT. This NFT drop follows the launch of the first Timecapsule NFT Collection on June 2nd in collaboration with artist Cassius Hirst. The Timecapsule NFT Collection debut resulted in an immediate sell-out of the collection. The launch also coincided with the creation of the “Prada Crypted” server on Discord which gained a large following solidifying the brands commitment to building an inclusive Web3 community, but this is just the beginning of the journey. A key design element of this latest Timecapsule shirt is that the garment is made from upcycled fabrics from the Prada archives. By turning iconic printed textiles into a unique design, these materials are given a new life, perfectly in line with the Brand’s sustainability strategy and approach to circular thinking.

This shirt, which is #31 drop in the Timecapsule Collection, is emblazoned with the calendar month of “July”. It features a black color pipeline matched with the Holliday & Brown tulip print on a cotton poplin base. It also features a ‘Jacquard Animalier’ silk brocade and lurex fabric; as well as Jacquard Thrush (flower), a silk fabric produced from an early 20th century French archive. The final details of the design include a ‘Poplin Loto’ printed fabric with deco inspiration. The Timecapsule is a monthly online event: for 24 hours, on the first Thursday of every month, an exclusive item is made available on prada.com in very limited quantities, in selected markets.

Each limited-edition Timecapsule item is associated with a unique serial number and is delivered with custom packaging. By purchasing the Timecapsule, customers will be able to redeem the related NFT which will be available, in a second phase, also for those who bought the Timecapsule dating back to the first launch in December 2019. As such, there is a synergy between the Prada Timecapsule and the scarcity and desirability of NFTs.

The NFT includes the drop serial number and the numbering of each physical item in order to have an exact correspondence. NFT owners are then offered exclusive benefits and experiences as well as access to future drops.

Prada Timecapsule NFTs are issued on the Ethereum blockchain, offering a secure and user-friendly experience.

The drop is facilitated by leveraging the Aura Blockchain Consortium’s NFT Solution and technology.

DETAILS:

● The Prada Timecapsule drop is open to customers in Australia, Austria, Belgium, Brazil, Canada, China Mainland, Denmark, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hong Kong S.A.R., Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxemburg, Monaco, Netherlands, New Zealand, Norway, Portugal, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan (China), Turkey, United Arab Emirates, United Kingdom, United States for 24 hours only, starting from July 7, 2022 at 3pm CEST.

● Each drop is limited to 50 items.

Men’s Arab Fashion Week

Dubai Design District (d3), in strategic partnership with the Arab Fashion Council, will cut the ribbon on Men’s Arab Fashion Week Ready-To-Wear SS23 on June 28th evening. Staged within the city’s design and fashion pulse, a total of 12 designers will unveil their season’s best between June 28-30 (7-10 pm).

The event will present a curated roster of fashion-forward designers from the Middle East, as well as key industry capitals. Among them, Maison Du Mec (Lebanon), Tagueule (Lebanon), Emergency Room (Lebanon), Michael Cinco (UAE), Amato (UAE), Heyun Pan (UK), Rian Fernandez (The Philippines), KA-1 (UAE) and Anomalous (UAE).

In addition, and a notable first for Men’s Arab Fashion Week, will be three special guest designers presented by The Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la ModeLazoschmidl, Arturo Obegero and Valette Studio. The three dynamic Paris-based brands have been carefully selected by the chamber to represent France’s menswear sector and are set to showcase designs that embody a fresh sense of individuality of spirit, matched with high-end European craftsmanship and innovative textiles. 

Serge Carreira, Head of Emerging Brands Initiative at the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, comments: “While the world is evolving on a fast track and faces major challenges, emerging designers embrace these changes and contribute to rethinking fashion. They catch the zeitgeist and introduce it in their narrative with a bold and sensitive view. Fashion is about inventing a future; they make a better future. As we aim to support and empower our designers by forging promising commercial ties worldwide, our relationship with the Arab Fashion Council is important. It sees Parisian designers featured on the official calendar of Arab Fashion Week and vice versa for Arab designers who are members of the Arab Fashion Council.”

Also commenting ahead of opening night, Khadija Al Bastaki, Executive Director of Dubai Design District (d3) – a creative platform by TECOM Group dedicated to design, fashion, architecture, art and retail, said: “We are delighted to kick off this fourth edition of Men’s Arab Fashion Week, the only Men’s Fashion Week held throughout the Middle East and Asia, and our second edition this year. In addition to marking the 20th edition of Arab Fashion Week overall, the Spring-Summer 2023 Men’s Ready-to-Wear collections will bring an exciting mix of local, regional and international talent and opportunity to Dubai – to engage, rethink the regular, inspire and push the boundaries on the menswear fashion offering here in the region.

“Collaborating with the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, we are immensely proud to see the three special guest designers – selected by the federation – in the line-up, ready to take to our runway.  The trajectory for menswear globally is an exciting one and we, in strategic partnership with the Arab Fashion Council, are committed to being at the forefront of this flourishing sector across the region, cementing Dubai’s status as a global creative and fashion capital.”

Further highlights of the upcoming edition will be the participation of two official sponsors that will design novel looks for models showcasing this season’s collections.  All backstage hair will be done by SCHWARZKOPF, while Italian cosmetic company KIKO will create all the makeup looks showcased on the runways.

Arab Fashion Week-Men’s Spring-Summer 2023 is also an opportunity to highlight two remarkable collaborations that bring to the fore the Arab Fashion Council’s pioneering commitment to the worlds of sustainability and fashion tech.

Logistics company Aramex has teamed up with Lebanese designer EMERGENCY ROOM, who are leaders in the realm of upcycling and second-hand sourced fashions. The two will unveil, during Fashion Week, their campaign for the release of a collection that will be showcased in October.  The objective of this cross-industry collaboration is to highlight the importance – and urgency – of implementing viable, enduring sustainable practices into each branch of the fashion supply chain. Mike Rich, Chief Marketing Officer at Aramex, states: “We are pleased with our collaboration with Emergency Room, which underpins our strong belief in the importance of empowering entrepreneurs, creative and sustainable businesses, and supporting them to create their own opportunities. At Aramex, we truly champion all sustainable practices, and this is what upcycled clothing is all about. Through this collaboration, we are keen to facilitate access to various logistical services and solutions, and we look forward to playing a continued, key role in the success of the Arab fashion industry”.

Also forward-looking is the collaboration between Swiss label Ferronato, the first luxury accessories range with full data privacy protection, and Lebanese menswear brand Maison du Mec. Their collaboration will see the two brands integrate meta-fabrics into high-end, accessories that are ultra-fashionable all whilst blocking electromagnetic interferences and unwanted tracking via devices.  For the occasion, an opening surprise has been planned at the start of the Maison du Mec Spring-Summer 2023 fashion show.

“We very much enjoyed collaborating with Maison du Mec, and we believe our shared vision of aesthetics has succeeded in complementing both brands. With his design and our technology embedded, this new collection will be one of a kind,” said Alessia Ferronato, CEO of Ferronato. She continues: “Arab Fashion Week has a track record for connecting emerging brands with buyers in one place, driving awareness and commerce in a rapidly evolving market. We are elated to be taking part in Arab Fashion Week and look forward to a fruitful collaboration with Maison du Mec.”

Every year, the Arab Fashion Council, in collaboration with the Fédération de la Haute Couture et de la Mode, hosts an exclusive showroom and presentation on the official Paris Fashion Week calendar aimed at providing a global platform to regional designers with a view to connect talent with international media and buyers.

The White House Fashion Exhibit

The White House Historical Association has announced a new virtual fashion exhibit exploring overlooked designers and seamstresses for first ladies: “Glamour and Innovation: The Women Behind the Seams of Fashion at the White House.” The exhibit is the result of an inaugural academic partnership with New York University’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education, and Human Development. The partnership with NYU began in January and will continue in 2023, with the next fellow chosen this fall through a competitive application process.

The Association’s first Digital Exhibit fellow, MA/MS Costume Studies student Maegan Jenkins, envisioned the exhibit. Through research, she built the project in collaboration with the Association’s David M. Rubenstein National Center for White House History’s Digital Library team.

“People are always interested in what the first lady is wearing, and what kind of message it conveys,” said Jenkins. “With this exhibit, I wanted to move beyond the major fashion houses to tell the lesser-known stories of the women behind some of those dresses and the incredible contributions they’ve made to American history.”

Glamour and Innovation: The Women Behind the Seams of Fashion at the White House” explores the work of a diverse group of seamstresses, designers, and couturiers responsible for some of the iconic first ladies’ fashions.

The exhibit highlights the eight entrepreneurial women who forged ahead despite racial discrimination, demonstrated that American designs could rival Parisian fashion and designed across the aisle for first ladies of both parties.

“Maegan’s extensive research has brought to light stories of hidden figures we hear little about, yet in their day were revered talent by first ladies and other social figures. It’s through their craft we are spurring further discussion about White House history,” said Stewart McLaurin, President of the White House Historical Association.

Through a mix of archival photography, portraits, biographies and press clippings, Jenkins’ exhibit will cover over more than a hundred years in fashion history. The display begins with Elizabeth Keckley, Mary Lincoln’s dressmaker who was born enslaved, to Mary Matise, who designed Rosalynn Carter’s 1977 inaugural gown.

The exhibit features high-resolution interactive photos with a zoom feature, allowing viewers to explore the intricacies of the designs up close. Jenkins, too, details the first ladies’ unique tastes and economic considerations, giving insight into the relationships built between each designer and first lady.

“We are delighted with Maegan Jenkins’ project. With its focus on the combination of creativity and labor, this initial collaboration between the Costume Studies graduate program and the White House Historical Association adds significantly to the story of White House fashion,” said Nancy Deihl, Chair of the Department of Art and Art Professions at NYU Steinhardt. 

The eight designers featured in this exhibit include:

  • Elizabeth Hobbs Keckly, designer of many dresses for First Lady Mary Lincoln
  • Sally Milgrim, designer of First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt’s 1933 inaugural gown
  • Nettie Rosenstein, designer of First Lady Mamie Eisenhower’s 1953 and 1957 inaugural gowns
  • Ann Lowe, designer of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy’s wedding gown
  • Ethel Frankau, designer of First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy’s inaugural gown
  • Karen Stark, designer of First Lady Patricia Nixon’s 1969 inaugural gown
  • Mary Matise, designer of First Lady Rosalynn Carter’s inaugural gown
  • Frankie Welch, designer of gowns and scarves for First Ladies Patricia Nixon, Lady Bird Johnson, Betty Ford, and Rosalynn Carter

Other items featured in the exhibit include Mrs. Lincoln’s checked gown and cape, along with other samples of designers works accomplished throughout their careers.

The project illuminates the Association’s 2022, “Tastemakers & Trendsetters” theme that showcases the fashion, cuisine, social traditions, and individuals who lived, visited, and worked at the White House, and through their talent influenced American culture beyond its gates. Programming such as this is supported by the sale of the Official White House Christmas Ornament.  

About Maegan Jenkins

Formally trained in fine art with an emphasis on fiber and textiles, Jenkins is currently an MA/MS candidate in the Costume Studies and Library and Information Sciences dual degree program at NYU’s Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Human Development. She is also a graduate at the Gardiner Foundation, contributing to the digitization of their museum archives and meta data.

About The White House Historical Association

First Lady Jacqueline Kennedy envisioned a restored White House that conveyed a sense of history through its decorative and fine arts. In 1961, the White House Historical Association was established to support her vision to preserve and share the Executive Mansion’s legacy for generations to come.

Support entirely by private resources, the Association’s mission is to assist in the preservation of the state and public rooms, fund acquisitions for the White House permanent collection and educate the public on the history of the White House.

Since its founding, the White House Historical Association has contributed more than $50 million in fulfillment of its mission. To learn more about the White House Historical Association, please visit HERE.

Gucci Pet collection via Gucci for use by 360 Magazine

Gucci Pet

The House introduces Gucci Pet Collection —a wide-ranging selection of items designed for dogs and cats that combines high-quality materials and craftsmanship with innovation, and many of the House’s signature motifs. The new line continues the narrative of surprise and delight behind Gucci Lifestyle, launched in September 2021 and inspired by a cabinet of curiosities—a place that could accommodate all of the fine, well-crafted that, while part of everyday life, still give off a magical and wonderful aura.

The offering includes collars and harnesses in plain leather, GG canvas, Web stripe, or the Herbarium or all-over geometric G print, and embellished with details like the Interlocking G logo or studs. Leashes in varying lengths and widths, bag holders, and Air Tag cases, are all available in the same materials and motifs to coordinate or mix and match. Within a selection of items that also serve as design pieces for the home are Made-to-Order miniature couches on which pets can lounge, feeding bowls with various House prints, cloches to cover bowls with, hard-sided cases with removable ceramic bowls and handles for easy transport as well as coordinated feeding mats. For pets who travel often, comfortable carriers in GG canvas are also part of the mix. Apparel includes polos, T-shirts, knitwear, and coats, distinguished by a vibrant palette and playful, signature motifs like all-over strawberries and hearts to Interlocking Gs and the classic monogram, also seen in the House’s ready-to-wear, creating opportunities for matching looks.

In line with the House’s commitment to sustainability, the Gucci Pet Collection includes items in recycled polyester, recycled cotton or Demetra — Gucci’s groundbreaking material that was unveiled in June 2021 after two years of in-House research and development. Demetra combines quality, softness, and durability with an eco-friendly ethos and is made from animal-free raw materials that are primarily from renewable and bio-based sources. Created from the House’s desire to explore and innovate materials for the future, Demetra is manufactured entirely in a Gucci factory in Italy using the same expertise and processes for tanning that give the material its pliable and resilient performance with a supple finish.

The new category is unveiled through a campaign with art direction and photography by Max Siedentopf. Infused with a retro-inspired, dream-like patina, a playful cast of dogs and cats of various types and sizes, wearing pieces from the new collection, are set against clean and colorful backgrounds that allow each animal’s personality to shine, inspired by the House’s underlying vision of individuality.

Gucci new ready to wear campaign via 360 MAGAZINE

GUCCI TOWARDS THE SUN

As Summer begins, Gucci presents a special selection of ready-to-wear and accessories from the House’s latest collections envisioned for the warm season. Mixing light fabrics with bright pops of color, the Towards the Sun pieces evoke the easy-going cadence that comes with sunny days. Upon bags, shoes, and accessories, pattern comes to the fore with the House’s emblematic GG monogram woven from a raffia-effect material. Houndstooth and seersucker also become defining motifs, enriching signature items such as bags from the House’s archive inspired Beloved lines. The women’s ready-to-wear proposes practical femininity in muslin slip dresses accented with lace, as well as a selection of bathing suits. The men’s lineup ranges from the casual to the sophisticated with jogging shorts, patterned pants, nylon jackets, and double-breasted blazers. The Towards the Sun selection is captured in a special campaign shot on the coast of Provincetown—the Summer escape of choice for many artists and creatives. Stills and video capture a cast of characters partaking in a series of activities on the quaint northern tip of Cape Code, such as swimming, sunbathing, and strolling around the lighthouse. As an ode to the act of vacationing, the photographs also feature the Gucci Ophidia luggage, which progresses the House’s century-long legacy in travel. Now available in Gucci stores worldwide, Towards the Sun will be presented in dedicated window displays and Pop-Ups with a creative concept that riffs on the houndstooth design found across the selection. The offering will also be available online at gucci.com. #GucciTowardsTheSun

Maharishi x Reebok

Reebok and London-based streetwear label Maharishi announce their first collaboration, bringing Maharishi’s military design ethos to Reebok’s heritage-inspired Classic Leather Legacy AZ (GW4452, $150), available beginning June 10.

Founded in 1994 by Hardy Blechman, Maharishi is defined by its ‘pacifist military design’ aesthetic and focus on deploying products that are practical, long-lasting, and offer an unforgettable presence. For their first collaboration with fellow UK brand Reebok, Maharishi have applied this approach uniquely to the Classic Leather Legacy AZ, a modern interpretation of Reebok’s timeless Classic Leather running shoe inspired by the archival Aztec II and adapted with contemporary shaping and material application.

“The Classic Leather Legacy AZ looks futurist and modern whilst retaining what makes it an iconic shoe,” commented Maharishi. “A big part of our design ethos is exploring duality, so this shoe – being a design classic infused with ultra-modern sensibility – fits well.”

The sneaker draws inspiration from United States military flight suits and uniforms, featuring a nylon construction based on historic military jackets, contrasting black ripstop panels in reference to the olive/black patch insignia used on traditional camouflage uniforms, and 3M reflective highlights for added visibility seated atop the iconic Reebok gum sole.

The Dolce&Gabbana Casa Collection is presented through a series of images that combine a classic aesthetic and a contemporary sensibility. The first Advertising Campaign of the new line dedicated to the art of home living transports the viewer into a dreamlike dimension where the objects of our everyday life meet inspiration and become pieces of unique design and creativity. The Blu Mediterraneo, Carretto Siciliano, Leopard and Zebra themes dominate the scene with their iconic patterns and references to Dolce&Gabbana’s most authentic DNA.

The photographs, shot by the duo Mert&Marcus, recall the traditional imagery of the Renaissance artistic nudes, while alluding to the aesthetic of the Dolce&Gabbana 2000s campaigns. The models’ silhouettes delicately blend with their surrounding, bringing out the Collection’s uniqueness. The campaign’s pictorial style draws the spectator into the oneiric and artistic world of Dolce&Gabbana’s furnishing creations.

In the campaign’s video contributions, the poetic aspect is further emphasised by the words of a love letter: Dolce&Gabbana Casa thus becomes the ideal space in which emotions and sensations find expression through the creativity of special objects.

Bold Beach Swimwear 

As summer continues to heat up, Bold Beach Swimwear is here to give you your next favorite swimsuit.

With individuality in mind, Bold Beach’s swimsuits are stylish and designed to fit your body’s needs. Gone are the days where you try on a top and wish it was tighter on the straps. Or a bottom and wish it had more coverage.

Every swimsuit is adjustable to give you your perfect and comfortable amount of support and coverage. Founder Alexa McNeal was tired of only seeing the restrictive sizes that only made her feel bad about her body and everything that didn’t fit her right. She wanted to feel good in her bathing suits and knew that she could make one that fulfilled that desire, for herself and other women. 

Each item has an adjustable feature and ranges in sizes from XS to 4XL.
