Adidas X Kwasi Kessie

Today, Adidas announced their first limited-edition headphone release in collaboration with Kwasi Kessie, celebrity stylist and Adidas Runners Captain.

The headphones are a reimagining of the popular RPT-01 sport headphones, inspired by Kessie’s admiration for his home city and its ability to get through whatever comes its way. Kessie was particularly moved by the recent sentiment that “New York is over” and teamed up with adidas Headphones to celebrate the city’s kinetic energy and beating heart at a time when people are questioning it.

The adidas x Kwasi Kessie headphones are the first limited-edition release of adidas Headphones. They are customized by hand, featuring premium blue and black leather snakeskin along the headband, a gold plated “Never On Pause” chain, housed securely in a safe that is disguised as a runner’s journal. The leather snakeskin is a nod to the malleable and fashionable nature of New York City and the adidas x Kwasi Kessie Speedfactory AM4 collaboration.

Only 50 pairs have been made. Consumers can enter to win a pair using the adidas Running app and running Kwasi Kessie’s favorite route, looping through the streets of SoHo and the downtown waterfront through December 22nd, sharing on social media. Full details and additional ways to win outside of NYC are available on adidas Headphone’s Instagram here.

Gilda’s Club x The Yellow Cab Project

Nov. 12, the Gilda’s Club NYC will host their annual gala, honoring Giovanni Caforio (M.D. Bristol Myers Squibb) and Emma Stone (Actress and Gilda’s Club NYC Ambassador), virtually.

As part of this year’s Gilda’s Club NYC fundraising, Remembering Marco will participate in the virtual auction launched on Nov. 5 with The Yellow Cab Project. The Yellow Cab Project is part of Remembering Marco, a charity initiative started by Annalisa Menin in 2013 to raise funds in memory of her husband, Marco Omiccioli.

Annalisa Menin, an Italian entrepreneur and writer who was originally from Venice, Italy, built her name with her first publishing project “My Last Year in New York,” a blog that then became a book.

It was dedicated to her husband, Marco Omiccioli, who died prematurely at the age of 33 from cancer in Nov. of 2013.

The Yellow Cab Project started when Annalisa stopped in front of the Kendra Scott window in SoHo, located at the intersection of Spring and Greene Streets. Along with jewelry and beautiful handbags, there were a few die-cast model yellow cabs being used as props, a tribute to the city of New York.

Annalisa went inside to ask what would happen to all those models once the window was emptied. Once she discovered that they would be thrown away, she thought, “Oh, no! I want them!”

Two weeks later, she went home in a real life version of those models, driven by a lovely gentleman with a white, cloud-shaped beard. She carried eight boxes containing as many cabs.

Annalisa created The Yellow Cab Project in 2020. It involved five international artists, designers and creatives, giving them the opportunity to “contaminate” the die-cast model cabs in their own way. The five artists were Warø, Jon Koon, Iena Cruz, Marco Gallotta and Clint Henderson.

To remember Marco in this very eventful year, Annalisa chose to support Gilda’s Club NYC. She strongly believes in their mission to “support, educate, and empower cancer patients and their families.”

This year, Gilda’s Club is turning 25 years old, and they will celebrate this important milestone with a virtual gala Nov. 12. It is the perfect occasion for the die-cast models, now precious objects of beauty and art, to be donated and auctioned, raising funds for Gilda’s Club NYC and its community from Nov. 5 to Nov. 16.

“We are so excited to have these one-of-a-kind yellow taxis included in our 25th Anniversary milestone event to benefit our cancer patients and families and are grateful for this generous collaboration with Annalisa and the remembering Marco Omiccioli Charity Initiative,” said Lily Safani, CEO of Gilda’s Club.

In these unprecedented times of the COVID-19 pandemic, Gilda’s Club NYC, the cancer support organization founded in memory of Saturday Night Live comedienne, Gilda Radner, transitioned their free cancer support program to a virtual program. They will continue to provide essential support services to cancer patients who are among some of the most vulnerable in this pandemic.

Members have expressed sincere gratitude for their quick transition to virtual programming. Due to the increased demand for this program and an affected donor base, they need additional funds to serve their current and growing community.

Annalisa personally experienced how important it is for grieving individuals to have a support system, especially in a city like New York, where many are far away from loved ones. She joined one of the bereavement group at Gilda’s Club NYC in 2013 after her husband Marco passed away, and it helped her tremendously.

Vivienne Hu SS 2021

Vivienne Hu released her Spring/Summer 2021 Working from Home collection, a practical and motivating collection, made its debut in New York Fashion Week on Wednesday, 16th of September.

An expertly designed, fifty pieces ensemble by New York based designer Vivienne Hu focuses on relaxed and feminine comfort without sacrificing style to include homelike garments which can be worn both at home and elsewhere. In addition to original handmade accessories, this collection emphasizes the effortless transition from loungewear to luxury fashion. The Vivienne Hu collection is crafted with fluid fabrics, a joyful color palette, and trouble-free silhouettes.

The collection exhibits a blend of classic European elegance and New York downtown style, where the concept caters to women who have a strong sense of independence and a desire for displaying their femininity and personality in a unique way.

Vivienne Hu’s relaxed and practical collection pair modern silhouettes with interesting details. Her softened structures are strongly inspired by empowering oneself to get through the situation through the whole world. Her collections have been gracing New York Fashion week since 2014, and today, the brand includes womenswear, handbags, shoes, accessories, and cosmetics.

Vivienne Hu is a designer based in New York City. Before pursuing fashion, she received her bachelor’s degree in Finance from University of Hohenheim in Germany. She then worked in the Investment Banking industry in New York for several years. She eventually decided to change careers due to her zeal for fashion and her love of creativity and the arts.

After obtaining a fashion degree from Parsons School of Design, Vivienne Hu established her brand, and debuted her Spring/Summer collection in 2012. Quickly, she gained industry experience working at Oscar de la Renta and Yigal Azrouel. Hu formally launched her flagship store in Soho, New York in 2013. In 2016, she launched her second store at 107 Mercer Street, also in the heart of Soho, New York. Her designs have been featured in fashion magazines including WWD, Cosmopolitan, Elle, Bazaar, Art and Designs, and Elegant.

On her design philosophy and personal vision, Hu says “In the corporate world I see women lose their personal style for the sake of professionalism…forced to follow dress code and as a result being ‘uniform.’ Women should never be forced to give up something so personal …My vision is to break open this forced box by bridging the gap between personality and professionalism.”

360 Magazine × G-Shock

By Bob Cal

Partnering with the Nassau Fire Department, G-Shock hosted an exclusive ‘Train Like a Firefighter’ event to unveil their latest product—the Mudmaster. 360 Magazine, along with a dozen other editors and photographers, attended this one-day class to gain first-hand experience with G-Shock’s high performance watch.

Arriving at G-Shock’s Soho location in Manhattan, the media personnel were transported to the Nassau County Fire Department in Long Island—and boy were they in for an adrenaline rush! Each attendee was gifted a G-Shock Mudmaster watch to test during this day of high intensity classes instructed by certified firefighting teachers. The students for the day were clad head to toe in heavy, authentic fire fighting gear, doing everything from traversing a pitch black building, busting out of a trapped room and sliding down the rope of a second floor window– all while wearing their G-Shock Mudmaster watch. The media guests were both physically and mentally tested.

Living up to its name, the mud resistant Mudmaster watch was like a diamond through every firefighting drill. Never did it scratch or catch dirt through contact with debris. Its light weight maximizes comfort and ease without comprising durability and longevity. The product’s other features include a digital compass, LED lights and water resistance. It is an all around visually elegant performance accessory.
