Alicia Gutiérrez – A Model’s Guide

Listen to Alicia Gutiérrez and Vaughn Lowery on 360 MAG Amazon | Spotify | Google | Apple podcast.

“Life is a path,” – Alicia Gutiérrez

Alicia Gutiérrez, Madrid-native,
is a college graduate with a degree in journalism. At 5’5 with brown hair and hazel eyes, this magnificent belle already has her life’s blueprint. Yesterday, we spoke about her success in modeling and moving from Spain to New York City.

Upon booking a major campaign in her homeland, Alicia decided to contact agencies abroad. Making extensive use of her media training, she compiled a spreadsheet of industry professionals, from model agencies to photographers. On Instagram, she searched for make-up artists and fell into a rabbit hole. It was there, she discovered websites like Models.com, validating as well as authenticating all the talents of the industry.

With good posture and immense confidence, regardless of measurements and shortcomings, this body positive person recognizes her manifestations. And dreams, in bringing them forth, will eventually come true. In fact, as a Miley Cyrus fanatic, she recounts a case where she stumbled into the singer’s camp while waiting in line for an activation. Thinking about how she was feeling, she entered into an awareness while she was near them. This occupation of space helped to reveal her fate.

From time to time we’re in contact with somebody who has something we can’t put our finger on, I don’t know what. The same ‘it’ factor led her to be signed by One Management and to work with different brands like Calvin Klein, SKIMS and Milk Makeup.

Inevitably, her star will align with entertainment giants such as Tyra Banks, Heidi Klum and Ashley Graham. In other words, her mind exudes inner compassion, balance and grace. Traits that a lot of people can’t learn or teach – it’s innate. As our conversation continued, it began to shine brighter and brighter, appearing dowey, “Like a glaze donut,” said Alicia.

It’s only a matter of minutes, this infectious energy will quickly burst into the entertainment. After all, she’s already adorned the pages of Vogue España, Elle Mexico, L’Officiel Mexico and covered Glamour Spain.

Rising R&B superstar Paloma Ford kicked off New York Fashion Week 2022 with a unique, one-night-only music showcase on September 7 at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, New York, in partnership with UnitedMasters and Crown Royal Apple via their renowned ‘Breakout Sessions’ series.

Shortly after, Paloma made her way to Diesel styled in a complete look of their latest collection as she commenced NYFW. While in town Paloma is set to support an array of presentations, including Tia AdeolaNo SessoKim ShuiPUMA and more. The relationship with Tia Adeola has gone on to be a special relationship for Paloma that started when she walked as a model for Tia’s debut show in 2019. Since then, Paloma has become a natural muse for the brand, starring in Tia’s fashion film ‘Black Is Beautiful, which premiered via Vogue in 2020 and more.

Gigi Hadid wears Guest in Residence in nyc shot by Michael Stewart inside 360 MAGAZINE

Gigi Hadid Brand Launch

Gigi Hadid Wears Guest in Residence While Out In New York.

Gigi Hadid has announced the launch of Guest in Residence, her inaugural direct-to-consumer, luxury, cashmere brand. Hadid is the Founder and Creative Director of the brand, conceived to honor and evoke a fresh appreciation and respect for the timeless designs, materials and craftsmanship of heritage heirlooms for all generations.

The brand’s name, unsurprisingly, was inspired by Hadid’s rigorous travel during her illustrious modeling career, which has quite literally taken her all over the globe – from Des Moines, Iowa to the Island nation of Nauru to Antarctica – between the fixed circuit of New York, London, Paris, and Milan. “Reflecting on years of travel and transience, away from creature comforts, no matter where I was a guest in residence – I always managed to find a home in myself – my internal residence of sorts. I strived to remain grounded despite the existential feeling that we are guests on this planet, and in our bodies. That we are guests when we travel. That we are guests in our clothes. That those clothes have passed through hands and may have had previous lives – and quite certainly will have future lives – cloaking other guests in the revolving, intergenerational door of life. The genesis of Guest in Residence is to honor past heirlooms and give life to new ones spanning generations,” said Hadid.

Second-hand, cashmere jumpers handed down by her multinational parents when she moved to New York in her teens, were always cozy, portable keepsakes for Hadid while on the road perfecting the art of sleeping on planes. Each piece had its own history, its own smell, its own personality injected with whomever had last worn it, and allowed Hadid to adopt a cherished family heirloom and make it hers. A sweater, to Hadid, isn’t clothing; it is a story, a marker of time and memory, and something that contextualizes her world. This is what inspired Hadid to design thoughtful knitwear that anyone can wear, style, love, and ultimately pass on to their beloved; mother to daughter or chosen family to chosen family.

A symbol of elegance and refined comfort, cashmere has long been viewed as a luxury, unattainable for some. Hadid wanted to shift this paradigm using both her world-class fashion experience, and quirky sense of style, to create a fresh offering with more democratized pricing offering an average price point of $300. The Guest in Residence core collection dubbed ‘funky classics’ by Hadid, are 100% cashmere featuring timeless, often unisex, silhouettes including cashmere jersey sets, joggers, hoodies, robes, beanies, scarves and socks in calming palettes of almond, cream, tumeric, navy, black and steel. Some pieces are sizeless and there is a cheerful infusion of vibrant contrasting colors of sunflower, royal blue, cherry, bubblegum, lime, and lavender. Hadid hopes this will encourage playful self expression and personal style twists.

For the launch campaign, Hadid chose a team from the powerful new generation of talent emerging in fashion, including photographer Pablo Di Prima and stylist Gabriella Karefa-Johnson. Hadid believes they embrace new ideas and self-expression, while understanding the historical importance of cultural heritage. Titled, Yearbook, the campaign is a sort of visual time capsule – memorializing a time and place for a community. Holding the conviction that humans better with age, Hadid selected 100 people from infants to centenarians to illustrate Guest in Residence’s timelessness and intergenerationality. Many of the models featured are family and friends of Hadid, including Tonne Goodman, Grace Coddington, Luiz Mattos (Hadid’s life-long agent) and Waris Ahluwalia.

The Guest in Residence collection will be available at www.guestinresidence.com in the US at 9AM EST on September 7th, 2022. On September, 11th, 2022, Hadid will open the doors to her Feel Shop pop-up located at 12 Mercer Street promising surprises for all guests! The Guest in Residence collection will be available globally on www.guestinresidence.com on September 12th, 2022 at 9AM CET.

Joseph Lee GR gallery exhibition via 360 magazine

Joseph Lee Exhibit

GR gallery is pleased to present ‘Passive. Aggression,’ an exhibition of new paintings by self-taught artist Joseph Lee.

This marks the first solo show of Lee with the gallery after former collaborations, and chiefly the artist’s first public presentation in nearly 3 years. A total of 19 artworks, in various dimensions, executed with his signature technique, will be exhibited for the first time, recording Lee’s fundamental production over last few years in an essentially anthological exhibition.

His highly unique style exposes abstracted portraits that disclose impressions of anatomic details hidden between extra textured layers of paint that contrast with a flat and mostly monochromatic background. 

Opening reception:

Thursday September 8th, 6:00pm – 8:30pm ET (Exhibition Dates: September 09 – October 1st , 2022). Members of the press can contact GR gallery in advance to schedule a private viewing and/or an interview with the artist before the exhibition is officially open.
Joseph Lee will attend the opening event. Visitors who want to attend the opening can RSVP by contacting the gallery. 

GR Gallery, 255 Bowery (between Houston & Stanton) New York, NY 10002 |  info@gr-gallery.com | tel: +1 212 273 2900

‘Passive. Aggression’ documents Lee’s time during 2020 – 2022. As his daily distractions dissipated under lockdown, he was forced to examine gaps, namely his liminality and inability to verbally communicate emotions, which made him unrecognizable to himself and others around him. Lee is both Korean and American, husband and son, actor and painter, passive and aggressive. Lee’s subject matters grapple with the way his liminality and thus, lack of a solid identity, began to impact the world he inhabited. The artist’s first instinct under duress was to isolate and paint.  During these years, the process of creating the works showcased in ‘Passive. Aggression’ was a salve. To finish a painting was not the intent. These works capture moments in Lee’s life where he deflected to his studio in fear and uncertainty. At the time of inception, these paintings were the best representations of what words escaped him, to convey – in composition – what he was unable to articulate. They are a line of expression uninterrupted. ‘Passive. Aggression’ is a collection of the artist’s self-reflections, love letters, & apologies translated onto canvas.

Joseph Lee is an artist who has spent years studying faces and the emotion that inhabits them. The beauty in Lee’s work stems from the manipulation of common everyday forms, such as faces or objects, into an array of energetic and forceful expressions. Each segmented brush stroke and application of color converge into a balanced whole.

His work focuses on the parallel between external reality and internal process. Each painting expresses a sense of physical harmony by layering of palette and brush strokes to create a complete and powerful gestural composition. This emphasis on the physicality of paint and stroke, color and volume, creates a unique tension within Lee’s dynamic paintings. The surface presence and confidence in each painterly stroke creates a uniquely uncompromising seductive experience for the viewer through the use of paint. In the age of swiping through social media images, these portraits force viewers to stop, inspect the physical craftsmanship and raw nature of these paintings. 

Today, Lee continues creating work to examine the psychology of beings behind their “societal masks.” His portraits channel various observations ranging from pop culture references to the daily people he encounters on the street. In addition to various gallery exhibitions all over the world, Lee has been commissioned by brands such as NIKE & Floyd Mayweather’s TMT for various projects. He has exhibited and sold to major art dealers and collectors in numerous art fairs.

Engwe EP 2 PRO EBike is review by Vaughn Lowery for 360 MAGAZINE

ENGWE EP-2 Pro E-Bike

ENGWE EP-2 PRO, THE FOLDING ELECTRIC BIKE THAT YOU CAN TAKE ANYWHERE

Modern e-bikes are great alternative transportation methods for those looking for quick, enjoyable, and exhilarating travel. We see them all the time — whether it’s your Uber Eats driver dropping off your midday lunch or your friend meeting you for dinner in the city – e-bikes are everywhere.

The ENGWE EP-2 Pro e-bike is an excellent option for those interested in delving into electric transportation. Priced at $999, the ENGWE is an affordable option, furnished with essential e-bike features. The Engwe EP-2 PRO Electric Bike will be delivered FREE, within 3-5 business days to the US, EU and UK Mainland.

360 MAGAZINE had the opportunity to test out the ENGWE EP-2 Pro e-bike in the concrete jungle. Please read below to find out what we thought about this practical e-bike.

Curb Appeal

Coming in at 70lbs, the ENGWE EP-2 Pro sports a conveniently foldable frame for optimal storage. Though this e-bike is heavier than other models, it offers an easy daily commute.

Available in the colors Black, Dark orange and Slate gray, the design of the e-bike is sleek and unisex. Structured with distinct and sharp lines throughout, the ENGWE carries a modern and universal sense that would adorn many.

Design

The original ENGWE comes furnished with 20 x 4.0 all-terrain tires to tackle varying landscapes. At 360, we swapped out those tires for a puncture-proof option, and acquired a saddle seat for the e-bike. The new tires were puncture-proof and withstood potholes that encompass the city.

The neck of the ENGWE can be adjusted according to passenger height with leather handlebars. The 48v 13Ah lithium battery is hidden with the suitable design of the e-bike in the battery compartment. To ensure further safety of the battery, the ENGWE made the compartment locks with a supplied key. An electric bell is, too, included with the ENGWE.

Technology

With a 5-level pedal assist, the ENGWE conforms to each passengers riding style with assistance from the LCD display screen. The 12.8 Ah battery fully charges within 5-6 hours and can be charged on the go with the charging port.

The 48 V front ambient light illuminates your pathway with bright and prominent rays. The mechanical breaks sport rear lights, sparking up when you begin to slow down.

Performance

The enhanced 750W motor is the star of the ENGWE show. The e-bike exhibits top speeds of up to 28 miles per hour, and ranges around 50 miles while in route. With easy torque customizability, passengers have the option to increase or decrease their torque.

HARLEM’S FASHION ROW

Harlem’s Fashion Row (HFR) announced today that the highly anticipated 15th Anniversary Fashion Show & Style Awards will open New York Fashion Week on September 6 in partnership with LVMH in North America.

With this year’s theme “Future’s Past,” the event will showcase fashion’s future fueled by the untold history of countless contributions, sacrifices, and innovations in fashion that inspire HFR to explore groundbreaking collaborations and to elevate black-owned brands. This special anniversary event will support further progress for diversity, equality and inclusion in the fashion world.

Additionally, HFR will introduce a newly created award in honor of the late Virgil Abloh, which will be given by his wife, Shannon Abloh. Honoring Virgil’s memory and lasting impact, the award celebrates like-minded individuals who embody Virgil’s spirit, brilliance, and vision, through invaluable contributions to culture, community, and innovation. This year’s award categories and recipients include: 

  • The Virgil Abloh Award presented by LVMH: Issa Rae – Actress, Writer and Producer
  • Designer of the Year: Sergio Hudson – Luxury Women’s Wear Designer
  • Editor of the Year: Robin Givhan – Fashion Editor and Pulitzer Prize Winning Writer

Brandice Daniel, CEO & Founder of Harlem’s Fashion Row, states: “African Americans have a rich history in fashion, although much of their contributions have been buried or unrecognized in history. However, HFR would not exist without the work of Black designers like Lois Alexander Lane, who created the Harlem Institute of Fashion and the Black Fashion Museum. We also would not exist without the work of other sartorial pioneers like Ann Lowe, Elizabeth Keckley, and Eunice Johnson. We are moving into the future by reaching back to understand, honor, and pull strength from our past.”

Through an ongoing partnership with HFR, LVMH continues its commitment to work toward a more diverse, equitable and inclusive fashion industry.

“As LVMH looks to the future of our Group and Maisons through the lens of diversity, equity and inclusion, we are thrilled to partner with Harlem’s Fashion Row on their 15th anniversary celebration, and to cast a spotlight on the cultural richness and creativity of the Harlem community”, said Anish Melwani, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer, LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton Inc. “The success of LVMH’s Maisons stems from their ability to reveal creative talents from across the world and we are excited to support the New York Fashion Week debut of three talented BIPOC designers from our neighboring community of Harlem.”

Three BIPOC designers will showcase their latest collections in the show:

  • Clarence Ruth (Menswear): Cotte D’Armes is a high-end men’s and women’s ready-to-wear denim brand in New York City. Ruth was the winner of the Tommy Hilfiger X Harlem’s Fashion Row Design Competition.
  • Johnathon Hayden (Sustainable Women’s Wear): Showcasing his brand Deus Ex Machina, Hayden creates ready-to-wear separates that bridge the gap between luxury and longevity.
  • Nicole Benefield (Women’s Wear): Self-titled responsible brand Nicole Benefield fathoms form over fast fashion trends, casual wearability over exclusivity, and eco-friendly fabrics above the latter.
