ERIC CANTONA LAUNCHES LOOKING FC

Former captain of Manchester United Eric Cantona announced the launch of his very own travel brand in collaboration with DHARMA, the travel organization that has released travel brands such as Equinox and Culture Trip.

Cantona commented on the inspiration for the travel brand, stating, “Our idea was to create the most passionate football trips on earth, with charisma and soul. Everything today is optimized for price – we wanted to optimize for passion.”

Looking FC, named after the Looking For documentary series produced by Cantona and his brothers (Canto Bros Productions), includes 4-day trips produced by Cantona himself. Guests are taken along an exclusive experience traveling global football cities through the point-of-view of the world’s leading clubs and their devoted fans. Each trip concludes with a Game Day experience seated in the passion sections of stadiums showcased for big League and Champions League competitions. If the Game Day experience wasn’t enough, trips also consist of immersive experiences like fan chant workshops, sports-themed graffiti tours and method briefings with journalists.

The nine trips included this season consist of Manchester (United), Buenos Aires (Boca), Liverpool (Liverpool), Milan (Inter), Madrid (Real Madrid), Barcelona (Barca), Paris (PSG), Lisbon (Sporting), and Casablanca (Raja), with thrilling events planned including Liverpool v Manchester United at Anfield, a Real Madrid v FC Barcelona El Clásico at Bernabeu, and a PSG v Marseille Le Classique at the Parc des Princes. Scheduling is intended for groups but is available to be booked privately to enjoy with your friends and families.

Pricing starts at 1,290 Euros per person based on double occupancy. Included in each ticket is all accommodations, experience, most meals, guides and game tickets.

Looking FC showcases the use of a people, plant and profit approach; in the first-of-its-kind partnership with Common Goal, Looking FC will donate 1% of its returns to fund the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals Initiative. The trips are designed with intention to strengthen local businesses, and each trip is carbon offset through Thrust Carbon.

Mr. Lindsay Boyd Q×A

As the world prepares to re-open, luxury travel mastermind Mr. Lindsay Boyd is unveiling the ultimate, action-packed getaway. His incredible $80,000 travel itinerary consists of James Bond themed thrills across four countries. Sight-seeking sensations include participating in high octane races in Ferraris, completing Secret Agent mission assignments, and starring in daring chase scenes in luxury supercars, boats, and helicopters. During all of which, travelers will be filmed so that they can rewind and relive their high stakes adventures forever. Not only will travelers feel like they’re Agent 007, but they will also have the chance to see the Secret Service Agent at the London premier of “No Time to Die.” Planning such an enthralling, experiential, breath-taking trip takes time and luxury travel know-how. As such, 360 Magazine sat down with Mr. Lindsay Boyd to discuss his once-in-a-lifetime travel excursion.

When did you first come up with the concept of James Bond themed travel?

The idea was developed 5 years ago, but now is the first time we can act on it.

How long have you been a fan of the James Bond franchise?

For all 24 previous Bonds.

How long did it take to plan this ultimate bucket list of James Bond themed luxury travel experiences?

Over 4 months.

The idea of filming guests and creating an exciting home-video of their vacation is such a personal and intimate touch to this trip. What inspired you to not only bring guests to see the London Premiere of No Time to Die, but also to let them be the stars of their own stories?

Travel and especially experiential travel are extremely personal in nature, and thus, require some type of memorialization. Film makes it that much more personal.

After the trip, where can guests access their footage?

It will be delivered to them via electronic media.

Why and when did you first become involved with the travel industry?

2015, I opened my firm so that I could go to the Olympics and other events in style and with VIP treatment. I have been traveling all my life and this just seemed to be a natural growth area for me.

This incredible trip offers so many high class, five-star attractions. Is there one experience that you expect guests to be the most impressed by?

That is a hard question, as the experience will be ultra-personal. But, for me, it will be the adrenaline filled chase scenes and the firefight leading to a fast helicopter extraction.

You mentioned that additional locations and adrenaline-filled action events will be announced at a later date. Can you reveal any more information regarding the trip’s itinerary?

We have a racetrack available to us in Italy and supercars at our disposal. We will be doing some exciting activities on a fjord in Norway.

Do you envision creating any other exclusive, themed trips in the future?

Yes, we will be doing several in the coming year, including a Fashion Week in Milan trip that will be to die for. There are some movie related projects that we are looking at, and a series of continuous, international music festivals with VIP access and special activities related to the music and the international locations. We will travel to three or four [locations] in a row and add distinct activities.

SAINT MOTEL ANNOUNCES U.S. AND EUROPEAN TOURS

Elektra recording group Saint Motel have announced U.S. and European tours in support of their forthcoming album The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. The band’s U.S. tour will kick off this September with three special hometown shows at Los Angeles, CA’s The Roxy Theatre, and wrap on Halloween at Madison, WI’s Majestic Theater. In March of 2022, the band will return to the road for a European tour. The upcoming dates mark Saint Motel’s first live shows since their sold-out U.S. tour wrapped in March of 2020. Pre-sale tickets for all dates will be available beginning tomorrow, and general on sale begins this Friday, June 11 at 10:00am local time here.

Saint Motel’s highly anticipated new album The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack will be released on June 25, 2021. The album is available for pre-order now here. The band recently unveiled an official music video for the album’s current single “It’s All Happening”, co-directed by Saint Motel front man A/J Jackson and Mario Contini. Watch it on the band’s official YouTube channel here.

On The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack the Los Angeles-based band dreams up their own cinematic experience in album form, as its songs cycle through stories of love, danger, and impossible triumph. The album also embodies an opulent sound true to its ambitious scope. Co-produced by front man A/J Jackson and Grammy Award-winner Mark Needham (The Killers, Dolly Parton, Chris Isaak), The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack continues the Saint Motel custom of joyfully blurring genres, bringing in elements of everything from symphonic pop to big band.

Audiences began experiencing the album with the release of a pair of EPs: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack: Pt.1 and The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Pt. 2. Among many highlights, “Van Horn” has amassed nearly 20 million streams, while the band performed it on ABC’s JIMMY KIMMEL LIVE! Receiving critical acclaim, Dujour described “Preach” as “a bop,” while American Songwriter poured over the album’s concept in an in-depth interview with A/J. Further looks came from Ladygunn, Hollywood Life, and more. Now, fans get the full picture of Saint Motel’s vision with the complete The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack studio album.

In the lead up to the album, Saint Motel made history as “the first band to open their own virtual metaverse” powered by Mozilla Hubs. The virtual world is designed as a motel with each room dedicated to a song on The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack. The quartet’s launch of “New World” welcomed fans to the virtual space where Jackson performed a live acoustic set. In this 3D VR chatroom enabled for all headsets and browsers, audiences can enter an exclusive, immersive environment to engage directly with the band through virtual meet-and-greets and intimate, live performances, consume exclusive video content, and much more. Additionally, it doubles as a space for fans to congregate and get to know each other. Saint Motel’s “New World” upholds what has become a tradition of engaging with groundbreaking technology for the guys. Visit Saint Motel’s website to explore the “New World.” In 2016, they dropped their Elektra full length debut saintmotelevision as the first-ever Virtual Reality album and first-ever Augmented Reality album and accompanied the record with the free saintmotel AR/VR app.

The group initially came together at film school before introducing themselves on 2012’s Voyeur.

In 2019, Saint Motel launched their most ambitious undertaking yet, unveiling their third full-length album in three parts. First up, they uncovered The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack Pt. 1 powered by the shimmy and shake of Alternative Top 15 lead single “Van Horn.” Between packing houses coast to coast on headline jaunts and earning acclaim from People, Billboard, and more, the four-piece rolled out Pt. 2 throughout 2020. In addition to unforgettable sets everywhere from Coachella and Lollapalooza to Bonnaroo, the boys lit up shows such as NBC’s TODAY, ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live!, and CBS’ The Late Late Show with James Corden, among others.

Saint Motel is: A/J Jackson (vocals), Aaron Sharp (guitar), Dak Lerdamornpong (bass), and Greg Erwin (drums).

NAIRY BAGHRAMIAN – MISFITS

FURLA SERIES #03
NAIRY BAGHRAMIAN. Misfits
Curated by Bruna Roccasalva

Promoted by Fondazione Furla and GAM – Galleria d’Arte Moderna, Milan

GAM – Galleria d’Arte Moderna, Milan
NEW DATES: May 26 – September 26, 2021

From May 26 to September 26, 2021, Fondazione Furla and GAM – Galleria d’Arte Moderna, Milan, will present Misfits, the first solo exhibition in an Italian institution by Nairy Baghramian, curated by Bruna Roccasalva.

Part of the Furla Series program, Misfits is a project conceived specifically for the GAM spaces that explores some key themes of the artist’s research: from her interest in intervening in spaces that mark a boundary to the relationship between the artwork and its institutional context.

Misfits began with the specific urban setting of the GAM, that is, a garden open to adults only when accompanied by children. A series of large-scale sculptures will inhabit both the museum’s interior and exterior spaces, combining the idea of play with a reflection on the aesthetic experience of inadequacy and imperfection.

Furla Series #03 – Nairy Baghramian. Misfits is the outgrowth of a partnership between Fondazione Furla and GAM – Galleria d’Arte Moderna, Milan, with the generous contribution of Fondazione Henraux for the production of the works in marble.

CONISON: OUR CHAT WITH HIGH-END STREETWEAR LABEL FOUNDER, CONNOR MORTON 

By Blake Holmes

A celebration of the LA dream, Conison is an up-and-coming, high-end streetwear brand from Melbourne, Australia. 
Recently, we caught up with Founder and Creative Director, Connor Morton, to chat vision, inspiration and what’s in store for the year ahead. 

TELL US ABOUT CONISON..

Conison is a high-end streetwear and design brand. 

At the heart of Conison is a message of inspiration. I want to encourage people to express themselves, providing an avenue for them to explore their own sense of style and creative potential through fashion and design. 

WHAT’S YOUR WHY? 

I’ve always endeavoured to express my creativity through outlets available to me, from DJing and music, to clothing customisation and art. I think everyone deserves this opportunity and my dream is that Conison will provide that for others; an inspiration source that spreads positivity and reinforces the idea that everyone has the power to shape their reality. 

WHAT’S IN STORE FOR YOUR UPCOMING COLLECTION? 

Collection 2 Rise & Fall is a two-part capsule. This collection celebrates an ascension to your highest self and the fall of negative energy. These ideas are expressed in my messaging and I’ve catered to both the NZ/Aus and US/Euro markets, with different materials and designs. 

WHO/WHAT INSPIRES YOU? 

There are countless brands and creators that fuel my fire. Designers like Reese Cooper and Heron Preston, brands like Riot Hill and photographers like Kyle Caulfield to name just a few. 

HOW DO YOU STAY MOTIVATED? 

I believe motivation is something you have to seek constantly. This can be challenging at times and the interruptions of this year have been a prime example. 

Regularly contacting my mentors, listening to podcasts, and painting have kept me in the zone this year. There’s always motivation to be found if you look hard enough. 

WHAT DOES A TYPICAL DAY LOOK LIKE FOR YOU? 

Every day is different but I start and end them in the same way. I usually wake up with a warm/cold soak to get focused, then have breakfast while watching motivational content on YouTube. From then I work ‘til i’ve felt i’ve done enough, which means late nights a lot of the time. I also work other jobs and fit in time at the gym or some form of exercise each day. I end the day with business content on YouTube to get inspired for the day ahead.

WHAT’S THE BIGGEST FINANCIAL STRAIN WHEN RUNNING YOUR OWN BRAND? 

Being a one-man band with no backing at 22 has been a struggle. There are definitely financial challenges and they’ve taken a lot of practice, help from mentors and learning to overcome. In saying that, I’m feeling confident in the belief that now is the time to be bold, take risks and bet on myself. When you believe in your brand and the message you’re trying to share, anything is possible. 

WHAT’S THE BEST PIECE OF ADVICE YOU’VE EVER RECEIVED? 

My mentor sent me a message a few weeks back. I think it’s spot on and something I struggle with at times. “Your art is not about how many people like your work, your art is about if your heart likes your work, if your soul likes your work, it’s how honest you are with yourself”. I try to follow this ethos daily and remind myself of this at times I’m questioning my vision and creative direction. I’ve implemented this into my work daily and it’s become more authentic as a result. 

WHAT’S NEXT FOR CONISON? 

The sky’s the limit. I want to push creative boundaries, not just with Conison but in the global fashion and lifestyle brand space. This means everything from painting collections and exclusive pieces to furniture. 
Most importantly, I want to continue telling the Conison story in an authentic way. Giving people a story to truly connect with is what drives me and the best way to keep people engaged and on-board for the journey. 

I’m learning and growing every day and Conison will continue to evolve with me. I can’t wait to share it with everyone.

LEAVE US WITH A FAVOURITE QUOTE..

I’ve got a few. ‘Ignore the boos, they usually come from the cheap seats’. This one has been really important to me. As a young person, you often face a lot of negativity and doubt from others about your ability to step outside the norm and succeed. I’ve learnt not to take this to heart and stay true to myself, which is something I think we should all strive to do. 

Another favourite is, ‘an arrow can only be shot forward by pulling it backward’. This one’s all about resilience to me, and the idea that on the other side of struggle and hardship is success, fortune and prosperity. I try to remember this with every minor setback and keep a positive mindset no matter the circumstances. When you do, nothing can discourage you from achieving your dreams. This is what Conison is all about.

Oakley Fall/Winter 2020 DEFINITION Collection

Oakley has just released the Fall/ Winter 2020 DEFINITION Collection, which places an emphasis on urban exploration and freedom of movement by fusing technology and nature. The result is a range of dynamic looks for every day and every place.

Oakley, Inc. based in California is a subsidiary of the Italian corporate giant Luxottica based in Milan. Found in 1975, it began in the garage of James Jannard with an initial investment of just $300. The company designs, develops, and manufactures sports performance equipment as well as lifestyle pieces, with the Fall/Winter 2020 DEFINITION Collection falling into the category of the latter.

The collection includes eyewear, apparel and accessories that feature dark tones and technical fabrics with reflective details, matching futuristic design concepts with simplistic performance-driven aesthetics. The collection is thus the ultimate combination of form and function, with the ability to be worn for sports performance or street style, depending on the occasion.

While the DEFINITION Project has continued to evolve, each collection can be traced back to the simple belief that technology can be (and should be) elevated to an artform. Oakley has explored this concept since the early ‘90s while staying true to its roots, transforming a passion for performance into a new type of visual expression at the forefront of design.

Most famous for their sunglasses, Oakley also counts sports visors, ski/snowboard goggles, watches, apparel, backpacks, shoes, optical frames, and other accessories. A vast majority of the designs are completed in house, with Oakley currently holding an impressive number of patents, over 850.

The new Oakley DEFINITION collection will be available at Oakley.com, flagship Oakley Stores and selected retailers worldwide in Fall/Winter 2020 season.

Gaggenau Impossible Skies illustration by Mina Tocalini

Gaggenau Exhibition

From 9 July to 22 September, the luxury design brand Gaggenau and Cramum present in Milan the solo exhibition Impossible Skies by Davide Tranchina, curated by Sabino Maria Frassà. The works on display are mostly unpublished and are made with the off-camera technique for which the artist is famous.

The “distance” is the key concept to get closer to understanding the world of Davide Tranchina. Human beings have always been driven to look from the earth to the sky and the horizon. From such contemplation arise unsolvable ontological doubts that move mankind to act for better or for worse. But what the viewer sees, as often in Tranchina’s work, in reality does not exist and has never existed, so what we see today are deliberately “Impossible Skies”. The artist triggers a sensory short-circuit between perceived figuration and recorded reality that provokes a vertigo not only because of the distance between us and the sky, but also because of the ambiguity of the image itself. For Tranchina, art and photography do not record what we perceive, but rather an ontological reality, that is, they provide the elements to see what the human eye – a mere organ – alone cannot grasp.
