Muralist Criola Via Criola socials

JUNGLE PLAZA – CRIOLA

In this monumental mural, the artist depicts four Black women in profile, facing each other in a mirrored disposition through a central altarpiece. The scene is completed with snake plants, hummingbirds, and serpents, all popular elements in Afro-Brazilian syncretic religions. This suggestive iconography serves as an expression of spiritual healing: snake plants, for instance, are popular plants in Brazil (commonly referred to as “St. George’s Spade”), believed to be instilled with protective powers against evil, and used in ceremonial blessings.

Acclaimed muralist, Criola, has significant mural paintings in São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Belo Horizonte, Paris, and now right here in the Miami Design District. The artist’s display in Jungle Plaza will be her most giant mural outside of Brazil, and her second public work in the US, following “Black Girl Magic” in Las Vegas last year. Her mural, Interdimensional Portal, portrays Afro-Brazilian ancestors in ritualistic performance, accessing ancient forest wisdom for medicinal purposes, and transcending thresholds of knowledge.

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.

Balenciaga in Haute Couture week for use by 360 Magazine

THE STARS OF BALENCIAGA

Kim Kardashian, Dua Lipa, Naomi Campbell, Nicole Kidman become the stars of the Balenciaga fashion show

The Haute Couture week, an haute couture parade that transformed celebrities into the best ambassadors of the firm, has made Paris the center of fashion in recent days. This is a great opportunity that brought together the most recognized faces in the sector, and amazed everyone with one of the most surprising Balenciaga fashion shows to date.

Kim Kardashian, the brand’s muse, melted into a striking black dress, the same color Naomi wore, but with a more voluminous design. Dua Lipa dazzled in a yellow one-shoulder dress, while Nicole triumphed in a mopped, long, metallic design.

In this new Balenciaga collection, a common thread between the technological future and the past was seen, where a tribute was made to the work of the house’s founder. “It starts in the future and then sinks into the past, in the Infanta dresses that later became the origin of the house,” said Balenciaga designer and creative director Demna Gvasalia. In this way, they were able to parade through the impressive Balenciaga salons wearing the latest haute couture collection from the house, becoming the protagonists of the event and fashion week in the Parisian city.

These uncovered faces, some of them world-famous, contrasted with the mannequins whose faces the creative director of the ‘Maison’ (French word) wanted to cover. The black enameled polyurethane helmets made by the Mercedes design team made it impossible to identify those who paraded.

These days, we have also enjoyed the designs of other major brands such as ChanelGiorgio Armani, or Christian Dior. Although without hesitation, Balenciaga has overseen shaking up the ‘fashion’ universe at fashion week in Paris.

UKRAINIAN artist, painter, professor via 360 MAGAZINE

Yana Bystrova

Yana Bystrova is a third-generation Ukrainian artist, born to create undeniably conceptual, enticing pieces of art. Having her body of work showcased in galleries around the world, Yana has continuously stunned audiences with her meticulous creations full of color, concept and mixed media.

Listen to Yana’s full conversation with the 360 team on the 360 MAG Podcast HERE.

No stranger to pouring her countries rich history into her designs, we now see Yana’s paintings amongst the traveling exhibition Painting in Excess: Kyiv’s Art Revival, 1985 – 1993,” originally set to be showcased in her homeland of Ukraine.

Engulfed in the world of artistry since before she can remember, Yana often questions whether she had a choice on becoming an artist. Her professional ability has been evident from a young age; with Yana’s mother often telling a story about a painting she created in her adolescence. The piece, showcased at a children’s museum, was suddenly stolen from their home. Yana created the painting at the mere age of three years old.

Having doubted her position as an artist, Yana, too, experimented with differing professions before returning to her craft. She dabbled in design and programming, in which she gained mass success with. Nonetheless, she knew that the corporate environment did not suit her appropriately and went back to her original passion for creating art.

Amidst the ongoing war in Ukraine, Yana has been deeply affected by the destruction to her country. A daunting task, Yana spoke about the devastation she felt from hearing about the Russian invasion when stating, “It is horrible, I was in shock and very disoriented in the beginning [of the war].”

Yana’s thoughts pour into her work, evoking a new era of her works. She finds that her most recent paintings are a version of the distilled reality of the situation at hand. Each hue used in her art represents something deeper than the color wheel could ever encompass, it exemplifies the weight of Ukraine on Yana’s heart.

She often considers the conflict endured by everyone affected by the war; those who have fled and those who are still in the country. The situation at hand in Ukraine has had an everlasting affect on her personal and professional wellbeing.

“[It is] one thing is to be a tourist; another thing is to be a refugee.”

Her latest participation in the new exhibition “Painting in Excess: Kyiv’s Art Revival, 1985 – 1993” was organized a few years back, postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Held at the Coral Gables Museum through October of 2022, the showing was originally conceived by the Zimmerli Art Museum at Rutgers. The project embraces a life of its own, taking a new shape and meaning modernly with the tragedy occuring in Ukraine.

Yana utilizes delicate use of color to personify her artistry, creating new narratives. In the way that verbal communication only accounts for a small portion of human interaction, Yana attributes color to bridging these gaps and expressing what cannot be stated in words. Often investigating new mediums for her artistry, Yana carefully crafts art that is theoretical and impactful.

Amongst her upcoming exhibitions, Yana has a New York residency opening on June 3. Entitled “Yana Bystrova: Approaching a Chaotic Reality,” the showing will be held at Gallery Arte Azulejo. A gallery walk will be sported on June 16 as well.

What can be the impact of Bitcoin on the advertising sector of Paris?

The impact of Bitcoin on the advertising sector in Paris could be far-reaching, as this emerging new form of currency has already begun to disrupt the financial markets. As more businesses begin to accept Bitcoin for their goods and services, they will likely begin to advertise their products and services using this new form of payment. It could create a shift in the advertising landscape. Just go  to the article  to begun.

Companies may begin to explore more innovative and cutting-edge marketing strategies that incorporate Bitcoin as part of their overall campaign. Furthermore, many consumers who hold Bitcoin will likely become interested in supporting businesses that accept this digital currency, furthering the Bitcoin economy. In short, the potential impact of Bitcoin on the advertising sector in Paris is significant. 

One potential impact of Bitcoin on the advertising sector in Paris is increased efficiency and cost savings. In addition, because Bitcoin transactions are non-reversible, advertisers will no longer have to worry about fraudulent charges or chargebacks, which can be a significant source of expense for many businesses. 

Additionally, because there is no central intermediary like a bank or payment processor, transaction fees are lower with Bitcoin than with traditional methods such as credit cards.

Another potential impact of Bitcoin on the advertising sector is greater transparency. It could lead to more targeted and effective marketing strategies, helping businesses to reach their ideal customers more efficiently.

Overall, the impact of Bitcoin on the advertising sector in Paris is likely to be multifaceted and ongoing.

The positive impact of Bitcoin on the advertising sector of Paris

Bitcoin has had a positive impact on the advertising sector of Paris. Bitcoin allows for micro-transactions, which are perfect for online advertising. Thanks to Bitcoin, advertisers can now pay for ads in a fraction of a second without worrying about chargebacks or fraud. It has resulted in more businesses being willing to invest in online advertising, which has led to more job opportunities being created in the advertising sector of Paris.

Furthermore, Bitcoin allows advertisers to target their ads at specific demographics and geographic areas, which is impossible with traditional payment methods. As a result, businesses can now reach their target audiences much more effectively than ever before. Overall, the positive impact of Bitcoin on the advertising sector of Paris has been very significant.

Bitcoin has allowed businesses to target their ads more effectively. The positive impact of Bitcoin on the advertising sector of Paris has been very significant.

The negative impact of Bitcoin on the advertising sector of Paris

Bitcoin has had a significant negative impact on the advertising sector in Paris. The rise of this digital currency has led to an increase in online transactions where people purchase goods or services with Bitcoin. While the use of cryptocurrencies can increase revenues by attracting new customers, it is also detrimental to the advertising sector in Paris.

One of the main reasons for this negative impact is that advertisers must be able to track and target potential customers based on their location and browsing history. However, with the use of Bitcoin, it becomes much more difficult for them to do so. Because there is no central database for tracking transactions, they cannot see where their ads are being viewed. 

As a result, advertisers must rely on more traditional methods such as billboards and television advertisements, which are much less profitable.

Additionally, the use of Bitcoin has also made it harder for businesses in the advertising sector to remain competitive. Because there is no control over what transactions take place and how much money is exchanged, businesses cannot keep up with the changing prices of Bitcoin. 

Overall, the negative impact of Bitcoin on the advertising sector in Paris is significant. The rise of this digital currency has made it more difficult for

Conclusion

While Bitcoin has the potential to revolutionize the way we think about and use money, its impact on the advertising sector of Paris is still unclear. Some experts believe it could open up new opportunities for businesses and advertisers alike, while others worry that its decentralized nature could lead to fewer customers and less revenue. 

Ultimately, only time will tell how Bitcoin will affect the advertising landscape in Paris.

Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall

Standing as the second part to the Louis Vuitton Pre-Fall 2022 Men’s Collection, Abloh’s collection personifies his style and methodology as Louis Vuitton’s Men’s Artistic Director.

Regarding the collection, Abloh explained, “My philosophy is very much informed by the clothes that people actually wear. What I do is an analysis of a generation: what do people buy and why do they wear it? That question naturally creates an equal interest in tradition as it does in changing tradition. But it’s also about challenging myself and exploring different land. That is creative freedom.”
