REEBOK’S “I3 MOTORSPORTS” CAMPAIGN

Today, Reebok officially unveils its highly anticipated “Street Sleigh” footwear and apparel collection, championed by moto-inspired takes on the brand’s iconic retro footwear models: the Question Mid and new Classic Leather Legacy. Introducing the brand’s “I3 Motorsports” narrative, which highlights Reebok’s relationship to bike life through the lens of its original rough rider Allen Iverson, the “Street Sleigh” pack is available December 15, 2020 from Reebok.com, Foot Locker, Champs and Finish Line, among other local retailers.

With a history in motorsports sponsorship dating back to the mid-80s and the introduction of its racing-inspired Answer IV and I3 Apparel range in the early 00’s, Reebok – alongside cross-cultural icon Allen Iverson – helped introduce motorsports to the streets at the turn of the century. In fact, Reebok’s vibrant and overbranded I3 Apparel line is often recognized as one of the earliest and most important crossovers between streetwear and sportswear.​ Today, like most team sports, inner city motorsport or “bike life”  is an important subculture in many cities, affording freedom of expression and a sense of community.

​To celebrate this important subculture, Reebok released a photo series that documents riders from Atlanta, a prominent, thriving bike life city. The series [HERE] captures the pure freedom of expression, movement, style and prowess of these individuals and their wider community.

Tailored with a contemporary red and black holiday aesthetic nodding Iverson’s heart and style, the Question Mid “Street Sleigh” [imagery HERE] presents a material execution inspired by ATV’s and dirt bikes known for their high-contrast matte and gloss detailing. ​The Deep Black full-grain leather upper is accented with a patent synthetic toe and a Rich Red randing (mock welt) overlay that flows onto a glossed midsole for a truly eye-catching design. The silhouette effectively underlines the intersection of bike life and basketball in the inner city – two important and often overlapping subcultures in which Reebok remains rooted. Available in adult ($140, G57551), junior (GV7187), preschool (GV7184) and toddler (GV7182) sizing.

Riding alongside Question Mid is the new Classic Leather Legacy [imagery HERE] that puts its own twist on the “Street Sleigh” narrative. With a Rich Red leather upper seated atop a Deep Black rubber outsole and mixing glossy and matte overlays throughout, the Classic Leather Legacy “Street Sleigh” presents a clean and thoughtful symbol of bike life and Reebok heritage. Available in adult ($80, GZ2752) sizing. 

“Street Sleigh” will also usher in the introductory release of Reebok’s new “Iverson Apparel” range, showcasing historic images captured by longtime A.I. photographer Gary Land, among other graphic designs. Apparel imagery can be found HERE.

Finally, to tie a bow around the holiday release, professional basketball player Montrezl Harrell delivers “Street Sleigh” gifts to kids in this animation-style short film, which can be viewed HERE.

Reebok’s “Street Sleigh” footwear and apparel pack is available December 15, 2020 from Reebok.com, Foot Locker, Champs and Finish Line, among other local retailers. Fans can stay tuned for more from “I3 Motorsports” in Spring 2021.

Harry Styles – Golden

Harry Styles fans from across the world all tuned in to watch his new music video for his single “Golden.”

Following the music video for his single “Watermelon Sugar,” which was released at the end of July 2020, Styles continued the theme of bright colors and zany outfits in the “Golden” video.

Running through the Amalfi Coast, Styles interacts with locals and dances with the blue waters setting the backdrop in the video directed by Ben and Gabe Turner. “Golden” is already certified Gold by the RIAA and is the follow-up single to “Watermelon Sugar” and “Adore You,” both of which are certified Multi-Platinum and hit #1 on the Top 40 and Hot AC radio charts.

“Watermelon Sugar” also topped the Billboard Hot 100, marking his first ever #1 on the chart. The tracks are all featured on Harry’s Platinum certified album Fine Line, which debuted at #1 on the Billboard 200 upon release and was recently named one of the top 500 albums of all time by Rolling Stone.

Vogue said that Styles was seen driving a convertible and a speed boat at the Amalfi Coast leading fans to believe a new video was on the way. They were right. Styles wasn’t just gallivanting around the coast for leisure, though that wouldn’t be a surprise either, he was collecting clips for the “Golden” video.

While Styles has excelled in his solo music career following the split of One Direction, he has also become a fashion icon for his gender fluid looks and fashion pieces that push boundaries. One thing Styles is known to do is wear lesser known designers intermixed with high fashion brands.

For the “Golden” video, Styles chose to wear the designer Steven Stokely-Daley, more notably the white and blue floral pleated trousers seen throughout the video and for the single’s cover. Stokely-Daley graduated from the University of Westminster this year earning his BA in Fashion and Apparel Design.

British GQ reported, “The items sit within Stokey-Daley’s graduate collection, which saw him use deadstock and leftover tweed, chiffon and silk from Alexander McQueen’s material archive, donated to the university by the brand under creative director Sarah Burton’s guidance.”
Styles also wore a piece from young designer James Pink.

Adding more to his repertoire, Styles is investing in a new arena in his hometown of Manchester according to Variety. Set to open in 2023, the project is lead by the Oak View Group and will be called CO-OP Live. “I’m incredibly proud and excited to be partnering with OVG on their plans for Co-op Live. Manchester is an incredible city, filled with incredible people, and I couldn’t be happier being involved in this project,” said Styles to Variety.

Styles is keeping busy this quarantine: new music, new fashion, and even a new building project. He no doubt makes us jealous by frolicking around Italy in the “Golden” video, but while he soaks up the Mediterainian sun, we’ll be watching the video on repeat to feel like we’re there too.

Champion × Super Mario Bros. collaborate

To celebrate the 35th Anniversary of the release of the original Super Mario Bros.™ video game, Champion has teamed up with Super Mario Bros. to debut a limited-edition collection using rare graphics that were created for the original Super Mario Bros. game, including the Japanese Box Art.​​

The Champion x Super Mario Bros. collection brings together two iconic brands using Super Mario Bros.’ nostalgic graphics reinvented through the Champion lens on the authentic apparel brand’s Reverse Weave hoodies, crews and joggers, anoraks, shirts, overalls, and kid’s styles. ​​The collection drops on November 18th and will be available globally.

One of the hero items is a nod to Mario’s well-known outfit, the authentic apparel’s red Super Fleece 3.0 Overalls, emblazoned with Champion’s script logo.

Mark your calendars for November 18th, when assorted pieces can be shopped in the U.S. on Champion.com and in various retail partners, including Finish Line, PacSun, Jimmy Jazz, Tilly’s, Zumiez and Shiekh Shoes, before it’s game over for this collection.

“These barriers are not going to stop me,” is the opening line of the latest #Adidas×IVYPARK campaign.

The highly anticipated collaboration with Beyoncé and ADIDAS made the world stop this past weekend. Like her music, the lifestyle brand is inclusive, evoking strength and identity. Gender fluid with neutral color pallets for effortless layering during the time of year. On trend. It’s aesthetically pleasing athleisure with the intended functionality backed by the workmanship of an apparel powerhouse.

The collection includes footwear which will entice any sneakerhead. Four sleek vibrant designs starting at $99 coupled with accessories and branded grillz.

In activation of the release, this week the Beyhive sent orange care packages to various celebrities: Megan Thee StallionReese WitherspoonCiaraCardi B and Diplo. Rolling racks, trunks and boxes were chosen by the superstar herself with ‘love and respect.’

360 MAGAZINE teammates rocked the unisex cargo sweat ($85) paired with matching sweatshirt. The Nite Jogger sneakers ($159) were enunciated with a branded key chain.

And, if you were one of the lucky handpicked few, you received a luggage tag alongside of an inserted note from the Queen Bey herself.

With many of the items being SOLD OUT within hours of its online discharge, this launch is sure to be one of the most successful drops in both brand’s histories. Definitely a strong departure from Topshop (originally a partnership with British billionaire Sir Philip Nigel Ross Green, she’s now the sole owner).

Michael Evans Behling

By Krishan Narsinghani

As of late, 360 Magazine sat down with actor, Michael Evans Behling, to discuss his story on becoming a series regular on the hit CW tv-show “All American.”

Behling was born in Columbus, OH but raised in Columbus, IN. Growing up, he played football, volleyball and ran track & field. Before pursuing college for track, Behling’s mother pushed him to try his hand at modeling. Flash forward one year, the biracial newcomer shot for notable brands like Nike, Finish Line and White Castle. Discovering a passion for comedic shorts via social media, Behling paved a career path that created an escape from negativity and depression. His personal life in a funk, acting molded that release and in return, made himself and others feel better. A bold move to LA quickly proceeded and transformed his life.

What do you think been your favorite part of shooting All American?

An outstanding cast. People-wise, we are a family that clicked from the beginning. There’s such a nice atmosphere including the production! Whether in the morning or night, I’m smiling going in.

Being relatively new to working the industry, what is one thing you would work on more?

To continue working even more and getting out on stage. Whether it means taking more classes and working as much I can to get even more comfortable doing my job.

One thing you’d work on less:

Before going into work. Whenever you get to set, you make something fun. The challenging part is when you get home at 3AM after a sixteen hour day and you have to prep for the next day. During the past 8 months, I didn’t sleep but it’s worth it. Being on stage, I’m still new and have a lot to learn. There are still moments where I felt like I could have done something better but it’s this feeling of “unsure” where I hesitate.

Describe your role and thoughts on your character Jordan:

Jordan is a cocky, confused, angsty high schooler who is the Beverly Hills High School quarterback. He’s dealing with some major identity issues, especially when Spencer comes to town and sees how his father and him connect – I think he’s got a really good heart and a lot of love for his sister and mom, but wants to connect with his Dad and fill his shoes. He’s slightly a jock with underlying actions and a lot of pain I have to hit while on set. Jordan’s a mixed kid who’s struggling to find himself but vicariously living through his dad. We’re both mixed so there’s a strong connection.

What advice to you have for minorities and kids of color breaking into the industry?

Right now we have an advantage – use this time now to get your training, get headshots and get whatever you need to get into the room. What’s the number one thing you could do before you get in? Ask yourself why you want to be in the industry. Do you know why you want to get into the industry for the right reasons? It’s because you want to make a change and love the craft. You love entertainment and make a positive change in somebody’s life.

One you get into the room, and you perform it’s out of your control. The door is going to open at some point. Stay positive and don’t get discouraged.
