BEYONCÉ x ADIDAS

By Payton Saso

Beyoncé first collaborated adidas with her launch of Ivy Park. Now, the singer is back with a new collaboration. On September 18 the Beyoncé x adidas Superstar Platform will be released and available to purchase through the adidas App.

This shoe is a reinterpretation of the adidas Superstar, “however, the tooling begins to sculpt to a platform shape, bearing in tow an aggressive, near brutalist aesthetic. The midsole, though partly left untouched, quickly begins to protrude out, extending from all sides as it does in height,” Sneaker News described.

The adidas website describes the launch as “The meeting of two icons: Beyoncé lends her elegance and perspective to the iconic silhouette for the 50th anniversary of the Superstar.”

Teen Vogue recapped the history of Ivy Park, stating that the brand, “relaunched just last April with adidas where they would be collaborating, but also Beyoncé would be designing her own sportswear apparel and footwear for the brand, which includes the classic sneakers.”

This remake of the Superstar is the first of its kind by reshaping the shoe and adding a platform. This isn’t the first time Beyoncé has repurposed the classic adidas style to brand them with her Ivy Park line. Earlier this year, she launched four shoes with the brand. “All showcasing the collection’s bold styling, and incorporating utilitarian details,” adidas announced, and adding never seen before colors to the brand.

The sneakers, however, were reportedly leaked prior to their original release date but this doesn’t seem to be bothering Queen Bey too much as she was seen enjoying a vacation in Croatia on a $2 million a week yacht.

While the Ivy Park name already holds its own in the fashion industry and pop culture, collaborating with adidas is its newest mark in the industry. The brand first launched in 2016 and was cofounded with TOPSHOP founder, Sir Philip Green, but Beyoncé is now the sole owner after Green faced sexual harassment allegations in 2018, according to BBC.

The singer originally alluded to her collaboration in the January issue of ELLE Canadae, which 360 Magazine covered. With new magazine covers, movies, music and fashion, this year has been busy for Queen Bey.

The singer released a visual album, “Black is King” earlier this year which was a revival of “The Lion King.” Beyoncé was also recently enlisted by the United Nations, along with other celebs, “a film promoting actions to tackle the world’s biggest issues from the COVID-19 pandemic to poverty and inequality” according to USA Today.

It is no surprise to her fans that the singer is staying booked and busy, and are anticipating her latest drop with adidas.

The shoe’s which drop today, September 18 on the adidas app, cost $200 US dollars. Through the app customers can purchase the shoe, or enter a giveaway which closes on the drop date to win themselves a pair of the exclusive sneaker.

Adidas × Ivy Park

By Armon Hayes × Vaughn Lowery

“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).

The Lion King

Tickets are on sale today for The Lion King, the Jon Favreau-helmed feature film that brings treasured characters to the big screen in a whole new way. The film like the original 1994 version features unforgettable music by an award-winning team, including Oscar and GRAMMY-winning superstar Elton John and Oscar and GRAMMY-winning lyricist Tim Rice, who’ve written an uplifting new song, Never Too Late performed by John, that features an African choir and will appear in the film’s end credits and also on the Walt Disney Records original motion picture soundtrack. The digital soundtrack is set for release at 8 a.m. PDT on July 11, and the physical album is now available for pre-order and set for release on July 19, the same day The Lion King opens in U.S. theaters.

Just hearing that music strikes you deeply, Favreau said. Even if you don’t know the film or stage show, there is a spiritual strength in it. But if you know the film, and if you grew up with this music now it can suddenly and immediately evoke the story itself, as well as all the connected memories and emotions that you have from your own past experience with The Lion King, or from the time of your life that you were in, or your childhood, or the life events it’s connected to.

Added Mitchell Leib, president of music & soundtracks for The Walt Disney Studios, The incredible musical talents who came together to contribute to this project are unparalleled. Jon Favreau’s deep love and instinct for musical collaboration inspired Hans Zimmer, Lebo M, Pharrell Williams, Elton John, Tim Rice, Beyoncé, Donald Glover and the entire music team to an awesome level of generosity, spirit and commitment, resulting in a powerful journey of song, production and performance.

The Lion King original motion picture soundtrack features new recordings of the original songs written by Elton John and Tim Rice, score by Oscar and GRAMMY winning composer Hans Zimmer, plus African vocal and choir arrangements by GRAMMY-winning South African producer and composer Lebo M (Rhythm of the Pride Lands). Oscar-nominated and GRAMMY-winning singer, songwriter and producer Pharrell Williams (Hidden Figures/producer,Happy), produced five songs on the soundtrack.

 
In revisiting the score for The Lion King,Éd; Zimmer realized the original themes and music were the emotional spine of the story. He brought back many who worked on the original film, including Lebo M, orchestrator Bruce Fowler, conductor Nick Glennie-Smith, arranger Mark Mancina, plus several singers from the choir including Carmen Twillie (who performed Circle of Life in the 1994 movie).
 
Zimmer wanted to approach the score differently for the new film and enlisted the Re-Collective Orchestra (led by founders Matt Jones and Stephanie Matthews), along with the Hollywood Studio Symphony (comprised of Los Angeles-based session players), and his band. The goal was to rehearse and record the score like a live concert performance.
 
Music from the animated film released in 1994 won two Academy Awards (original song and original score), four GRAMMYS and two Golden Globes. The soundtrack was No. 1 on the Billboard 200 album chart for 10 nonconsecutive weeks and was certified Diamond by the RIAA, for 10 million units sold.
