PUMA AND J.COLE ANNOUNCE OFFICIAL PARTNERSHIP WITH TV SPOT THAT WILL AIR DURING 2020 NBA ALL STAR GAME

Collab footwear and apparel to be part of multi-year partnership

Today, global sports company PUMA officially announced a multi-year partnership with Grammy-winning artist J. Cole with a short film and TV commercial that was concepted and co-directed by Cole himself. The theme of the spot speaks to never abandoning one’s dream, despite the obstacles faced or time passed. The commercial was a joint PUMA x Dreamville production and will air during Sunday’s NBA All-Star game on TNT. PUMA has tapped Cole because of his connection to basketball, fashion and music culture.

“Our partnership with Cole is deep-rooted,” said Adam Petrick, Global Director of Brand & Marketing at PUMA. “Cole’s involved in product creation, marketing campaigns and cultural guidance. He is going to be a key player in many of the things we do at PUMA moving forward and we’re excited to work with him not only on a product level but even more importantly as one of our athletes.Cole sits at the intersection of musicand sport and represents everything that PUMA stands for as a brand.”

This announcement comes right before PUMA’s newest Hoops silhouette, the Sky Dreamer, hits shelves on February 13. The Sky Dreamer is a relaunch of the original style, the Sky LX, worn on-court in the ‘80s. It now returns to basket ball nearly four decades later with a heritage-inspired mid-top silhouette infused with a touch of today’s style, including a Dreamville “Dreamer” emblem, which draws inspiration from Cole’s
brand, Dreamville. This new sneaker will be worn on and off the court by PUMA Hoops athletes and has already been spotted on J.Cole over the past few months. The Sky Dreamer is the first of many Hoops products that Cole will be involved in before dropping his own Dreamer footwear and apparel coming later this yearwith PUMA.

The Sky Dreamer, available on PUMA.com and at Foot Locker in the U.S., is equipped with PUMA Hoops technology, including the brand’s signature ProFoam cushioning and high-abrasion grip for peak stability. It also features forefoot webbing for stabilization and lockdown. The Sky Dreamer will retail for $130.

NORDSTROM NYC FLAGSHIP

By Armon Hayes × Vaughn Lowery

Co-President, Pete Nordstrom, along side of corporate partners hosted a tour for retailer’s newly largest single project investment in their history. On Oct 24th, Nordstrom will launch its first flagship in Manhattan since the 1920s. An exclusive onestop shop adjacent to the Nordstrom Men’s store located on West 57th street & Broadway. The seven-level flagship store, designed in collaboration with James Carpenter Design Associates, forms in the base of the ‘tallest residential building in the Western Hemisphere.’ With 320,000 square feet, it will embody an experience which is responsive and reflective of its customers. After all, a great design encourages people to stay longer and shop more. And, with 19-foot ceilings, it’s an open canvas for an interchangeable yet flexible floor plan.

The new floor plan allows for discovery, with range to explore and transition through brands freely that they haven’t experienced before. The infrastructure is designed to funnel natural light through transparency with floor to ceiling glass, intertwining the shopping experience to the city’s skyline. The atrium possesses a waveform glass façade which allows for interaction from customers inside and out. Chain-mail veils and lighting installations lend character to the location, reflecting the city’s cultural events as well as major holidays. 

“A rapidly growing younger consumer who’s engaged has emerged,” asserts Pete Nordstrom. Instinctively creating a new culture and how we shop that’s relevant to life experiences. Today one-third of sales are e-commerce, which represents 30% of Nordstrom’s business.

For over 100 years, the retailer has stood the test of time. The climate of brick and mortar for many retailers have shrunk and/or has become nonexistent. Nordstrom understands as their customer evolves, their level of service and retail atmosphere should be elevated as well. Using technology and innovation, the new store’s communication system will allow employees to order beverages and/or garments throughout the location.

In addition, customers will have access to 24/7 buy online & pickup, in-store personal stylists and tailoring while you wait. The Vice President of Creative Projects, Olivia Kim, has fabricated initiatives like Pop-In@ Nordstrom – an exclusive space for emerging designers. Merchandising will include a curated depth of products (clothing, accessories, shoes, beauty, children’s, home etc) across price points.

Lastly, there will be 7 food and beverage options with 4 full-service restaurants, 2 bars and an innovative, gluten-free doughnut stand:

¤ Shoe Bar will feature handcrafted cocktails, speciality coffee drinks and a selection of small plates.

¤ 2 restaurants are in collaboration with Chef Tom Douglas.

¤ 1 restaurant is in collaboration with Chef Ethan Stowell.

For a mega metropolis that’s often explored while on foot, this fashion marquee’s newest residence seems to be long overdue.

PUMA X Pirelli: the new “Replicat -X”

FAST AS A BULLET, AERODYNAMIC AS A RACING CAR

PUMA and Pirelli introduce the new “Replicat -X” inspired by modern sports cars.

  • Pirelli and PUMA join forces to develop a revolutionary new shoe inspired by motorsport.
  • A completely fresh silhouette made with a sole and upper construction that helps you to control the grip off and on track.
  • The Replicat-X marks a new PUMA motorsport design philosophy bringing racing to the road.

You know the sound of a racing car? It’s the sound of power. A legend in the tire industry, Pirelli dominates that power both on and off the track. And now you can feel the excitement of the race track at your feet.

For the first time, PUMA and Pirelli join forces to bring control to your feet. Combining Pirelli’s CINTURATO Blue tire, used at the top level of racing with Puma’s motorsport heritage, the new Replicat-X is designed to perform like a modern supercar, bringing the track to the street.

 

The Replicat-X sports an “oversized” full rubber outsole, with a comfortable molded sock-liner. Pirelli’s unique CINTURATO Blue tread pattern on the sole – used to generate maximum traction at wet races – provides grip and control for the power under your feet.

Fast as a bullet, aerodynamic as a racing car, the shoe’s upper features a perforated Microfiber-suede on the vamp, with lateral mesh panels for breathability, providing the perfect fit to own the road.

In AW19 PUMA will bring the track to the street, influencing a new generation inspired by the hustle and roar of racing in their style and swagger on the streets. We will create a powerful and relevant new look and feel for PUMA Motorsports. We will break through the ordinary, tear down the trackside barriers and accelerate into the streets at full throttle!

The new Replicat – X in the first colorway will be pre-launched from May 15 on puma.com

Fashion statements from The Players: How to wear pink on the golf course

Forget blending in. 2019 is all about standing out, and what better way to achieve this than with a bold colour like pink. Many people shy away from the shade because they think it’s hard to wear, but if you look at the golfing fashion highlights of 2018, many of them involved a pop of pink. Whatever you call it, either salmon, rose, blush or coral, there’s no denying that wearing pink is a challenge. If you’re up for the challenge, make sure you follow these style rules from the pros to avoid looking out of place on the green.

What better place to look for pink-spiration than the final day of the 2018 Players Championship. On this day, the players compete in an unofficial “pink out” to raise awareness for breast cancer charities. As a partner of The Donna Foundation, this offers the perfect opportunity for the players to show off their favourite pink threads. And it’s also the perfect opportunity for us to pick up some style tips. So, without further ado, here are six different ways to make pink work for you on the golf course in 2019.

The bold polo

Webb Simpson offered the perfect example of pink done right when he wore the FootJoy Stretch Pique golf shirt in berry. This bold choice was paired with a muted pair of khakis to avoid looking over the top. One thing that golfers should be aware of when choosing their shirt is the risk of creases. Since bright colours tend to accentuate creases, it’s important to reach for highly technical and anti-wrinkle fabrics if you are opting for a bold bright colour like this berry hue. Luckily for Simpson, he did just this and looked sharp for his victory.

The muted hues

Wearing pink doesn’t have to be a brash choice. If you’re not excited about making a brash statement, opt for a pale pink. At the 2018 PGA tour, we saw Xander Schauffele use this styling choice to create a sleek and professional look. Having an athletic build means that he can get away with more than most, but he certainly hit a hole in one with this fashion choice. If you’re planning to wear a light pink striped polo similar to Schauffele, pair it with a light grey pair of pants.

Verging on red

If you’re looking for a low-risk choice on the golf course, opt for a hue that could almost be considered red. Jordan Spieth tried this look at the 2018 PGA tour and the result was magnificent. His Under Armour UA Playoff golf shirt featured thick pink stripes which gave the shirt an almost pomegranate red look. However, if you look at the detailing around the collar and on the buttons, you’ll see a much brighter shade of blush. The safest colour to pair with pink is grey, and Spieth managed this with ease.

Preppy trousers

Perhaps the boldest look on the golf course is pink pants. These can range from baby pink to bright magenta. The only rule you need to follow is that you wear them with confidence. These pink PUMA golf pants are the perfect choice for summer and create an effortlessly preppy look. Choose a brighter colour if you don’t want people wondering if you accidentally washed your white trousers with your favourite red shirt.

Accessorise with pink

If you aren’t ready for a pink golf shirt then you probably aren’t ready for pink golf pants either. Not to worry, as there are ways to accessorise with pink accents. This look is modern and stylish without being too outlandish. If you play at a more conservative golf club and are worried about ruffling feathers, then this is the way to go. At the 2018 PGA tour, Bryson DeChambeau showed us how it is done with this PUMA Ignite Pwradapt Golf Shoes. These feature a distinctive pink heel and a pink logo. DeChambeau’s were also customised with the word “mom” and a bright pink heart. There’s no need to go this far, but we’re sure your mum will appreciate the thought.

Pink fail

Continuing with the pink trend and tributes to his mother, DeChambeau also toted a distinctive bright pink Cobra golf bag for the day. Similarly emblazoned with the “mom” motif, it was a nice sentiment, but not one that we would suggest you try to follow. With the selection of pink golf bags available, it’s going to be hard to pull it off without looking like you just picked up the wrong golf bag in the clubhouse. If you really want to try the pink trend on the golf course, you’re far better off with accents of pink rather than overhauling your core items in a shocking hue.

In summary, there are plenty of ways to wear pink on the golf course, and we expect it to be a very popular shade in 2019. Just make sure you wear it with intention, or you could end up looking like you accidentally turned your favourite white polo pink in the wash.

ComplexCon 2018

By Krishan Narsinghani

For the third annual year, ComplexCon takes over the greater LA area. Set in Long Beach, California, major brands and celebrities flooded their convention center to witness spectacular musical acts, speakers, brands and art. Over the two days, 360 Magazine visited various booths – Puma, Champion, Reebok, Pink Dolphin, 1800 Tequila, Cadillac and more. Reebok’s exclusive ComplexCon shoe, the R58 stunted vibrant colors and introduced all three logos shown for the first time.

Takashi Murakami, contemporary artist on the host committee, sprinkled his aesthetics across the summit (in addition to a collaboration with Drake’s OVO). 1800 Tequila partnered with artist Adam Lucas and streetwear designer Nicky Diamonds for custom-made vintage denim jackets which were raffled at this year’s program. Attendees waiting in line for the McDonald’s installation were treated with Mcnuggets and fries before choosing patches to press onto free backpacks and shirts.

Recording artist Tinashe was a 360 favorite. The urban singer performed hits “Company” and “2 On.” Other performances included Lil Baby, Nav and T-Pain while the crowd also bopped to headliners Rae Sremmurd and Future. Duo Sremmurd surprised fans with a special appearance from rapper Tyga.

ComplexCon(versations) topics revolved around today’s thought on politics, culture, fashion and music. Billboard producer of the decade, Pharrell Williams was a host due to his creative sense on the latest pop culture trends. Tommy Hilfiger spoke on his relationships with Hip-Hop and the connections between music and fashion. Jaden Smith and Yara Shahidi discussed growth out of chaos and how youth should address political issues. Rapper and icon, Nas, spoke on the behind-the-scenes of film, “Belly” and how it changed Hip-Hop and Hollywood.
