Cullinan Inspired by Fashion: Prêt-à-Porter Collection
by the House of ROLLS-ROYCE

  • ‘Cullinan – Inspired by Fashion’ reflects the latest couture trends and showcases infinite Bespoke possibilities
  • Comprises two prêt-à-porter collections: bold Re-Belle, inspired by colour block, and Fu‑Shion, bringing function and fashion together
  • Starlight Tailgate – all-new Bespoke feature extending the magical celestial ambience beyond the interior of the motor car
  • Matching Luggage Collection designed to complement each of the interior themes

The House of Rolls-Royce reveals ‘Cullinan – Inspired by Fashion,’ comprised of two prêt-à-porter collections– the bold Re‑Belle and striking Fu-Shion. These exquisite ‘objects of desire’ by the Rolls-Royce Bespoke Collective take inspiration from vibrant hues and textures seen in the world of high fashion, reflecting the eclectic tastes and lifestyle of the luxury clientele.

As works of art in their own right, ‘Cullinan – Inspired by Fashion’ will be unveiled to luxury connoisseurs and patrons of the brand at Art Basel in Miami this evening.

‘Cullinan – Inspired by Fashion’  brings out the multifarious character of the luxury SUV and its Black Badge alter ego. We drew inspiration from the world of or patrons – individuals with eclectic tastes who define trends and influence current movements in the fields of art, fashion and design,” says Celina Mettang, Bespoke Colour and Material Designer, Rolls-Royce Motor Cars. “They defy boundaries, challenge conventions, and are bold in their expression of individuality. Reflective of their tastes, our ‘Cullinan – Inspired by Fashion’ models are designed as statement pieces, perfectly tailored to suit the lifestyles of our clients.”

‘Cullinan – Inspired by Fashion’ Re-Belle is the ultimate statement piece, reflecting contemporary colour blocking trends with its vivid hues and playful combination of textures. A splash of colour in the interior with Peony Pinkor Lime Green accents provides an irresistible contrast to the Arctic White or Cashmere Grey leather trim.

The fascia is finished with extraordinarily detailed handwoven stainless-steel fabric, evocative of metallic apparel seen on this year’s catwalks. Delicate thread with a diameter as fine as 0.45 mm creates an intricate texture, which catches the light beautifully as the vehicle is in motion. Re-Belle collection is offered in Lime Green, Gunmetal, Wildberry, or Arctic White exterior colors, available depending on the selected interior.

Unleashing the daring Black Badge personality, ‘Cullinan – Inspired by Fashion’ Fu-Shion reinterprets high fashion with a utilitarian edge. Reminiscent of the Spring/Summer 2023 prêt‑à-porter collections, embellished with functional elements evocative of street wear, Fu‑Shion showcases Cullinan’s personality – the pinnacle of luxury, effortless everywhere.

or Fu-Shion, designers created two interior styles: an eye-catching combination of Military Green, Navy Blue, and Mandarin or a blend of Arctic White and Cashmere Grey leather with Forge Yellow accents. Depending on the interior palette, ‘Cullinan – Inspired by Fashion’ Fu-Shion  can be commissioned in one of four exterior colors: Military Green, Burnout grey, Forge Yellow or Tempest Grey.

For ‘Cullinan – Inspired by Fashion’, designers created the all-new Starlight Tailgate – a stunning feature which extends the magical, celestial ambience of the Starlight Headliner beyond the interior.

This Bespoke feature takes more than 22 hours to manufacture and includes 192 softly illuminated stars incorporated into the perforated leather.

The Starlight Tailgate is complemented by the Viewing Suite, creating a perfect setting to enjoy the enchanting beauty of a starry night, anywhere and everywhere.

A further innovation is to be found on the lower part of the fascia, which introduces a coloured Piano veneer for the first time: Cashmere Grey for Re‑Belle and Navy Blue for Fu-Shion. This glossy finish acts as a unifying element, bringing yet more depth to the interior.

For travel in ultimate style, ‘Cullinan – Inspired by Fashion’ is available with matching luggage sets designed to complement each of the four interior themes. The collection is comprised of the following: 24-hour Weekender, 48-hour Weekender, Holdall, Tote Bag, and Organizer Pouch, offered individually or as a five-piece set.

Gucci Exquisite campaign inside 360 MAGAZINE

Exquisite GUCCI

As first presented in the hall of magic mirrors during Milan fashion week, the Exquisite Gucci collection was designed by the House’s Creative Director, Alessandro Michele for Fall-Winter 2022. The emphasis on tailoring was the show’s organizing theme, but the headline was Michele’s collaboration with adidas. Merging sartorial tradition and sportswear codes, he added the brand’s trademark stripes and emblem to suits and an array of ready-to-wear.

A Note From Gucci’s Creative Director Alessandro Michele

I’ve always been charmed by cinema. For its power to tell stories that can probe human adventure and its drift. For its visionary power to dig up in the real, making it vertiginously imaginative and questionable. Such a careful look on the human, after all, is so close to me. I could never imagine clothes as severed from the story and life of the person wearing them. If you ask me, a garment is not, and never will be, just a piece of fabric. It’s rather the means through which we are able to unfold who we really decide to be, it’s how we shape our desires and the ultimate sense of our staying. That’s why I’ve always imagined my collections as films able to convey a cinematography of the present: a score of stories, eclectic and dissonant, that can sacralize the human and its metamorphic ability.

The “Exquisite” campaign is my tribute to cinema and to one of its brightest maestros, Stanley Kubrick. A philosophic filmmaker who, better than others, emanated the magic of that inextricable knot through which cinema exudes life and magnifies it. I’ve always admired Kubrick’s remarkable capacity in tackling very different subjects. His experimental drive goes beyond any possible categorization. Every film, in fact, digests the manifold souls where dystopia meets parody, drama becomes human comedy, horror looks like a psycho-philosophic treatise, the feeling of truth evolves into the uncanny. Kubrick was, in essence, a real sculptor of genres: the “cross-genre” director, ahead of his time. His ability to build stories that exceed significance, crossing borders and setting labels on fire, has always been deeply inspiring to me.

As an act of love, I decided to reinhabit Kubrick’s films, pushing to the core this incendiary approach. I took the liberty of disassembling, blending, grafting and reassembling them. Sticking to my creative praxis, I seized those movies, romanticizing them, populating them with my clothes. Trying to create short circuits where the adidas gown, that had already lost its status of sportswear to become a Victorian costume, appears as a new character in the script of Barry Lyndon. The dress designed by Laura Whitcomb, wearing which Madonna grabbed the New York spotlight in the nineties, fits in the gothic scenes of The Shining. The mysterious darkness of the enigmatic ritual of Eyes Wide Shut embraces a venus in fur, embellished with sensual bourgeois pearls. And more, the 90s shoes with a fetish flavor explode through the frames of A Clockwork Orange. Finally, the dreamiest evening dress dangled in soft tulle ruches bursts into the aseptic and dystopian space of the Discovery One in 2001: A Space Odyssey. This situationist game mixes historical plans, references, experiences. The past explodes into the present. Everything can become anything, or something else. As in that famous scene of Kubrick’s masterpiece, where the bone turns into a spaceship. As in life.

With “Exquisite” I carry on my attempt to mingle high and low, this time coherently and synergistically with the grammar of the great director. In the selected sequences it feels like Nietzsche, Kant and Freud speak casually to the people in the street. The biggest questions about the meaning of life become pop images. Complex transfigurations in terms of significance, get immediate access in terms of experience. Everything comes to be iconic, symbolically sophisticated, though able to reflect on a culture that we can definitely identify as pop. I chose Kubrick also for this, after all. What he created is part of our collective imagination. Since he was a diviner of vision, his works are as recognizable as the Sistine Chapel, the Virgin of the Rocks or The Simpsons. Manipulating his images, inside a brand new semantic framework, is like hacking La Gioconda. Plus the inspiration and the empathy only possible through the fictional cinematographic machine.

This involvement generates a change of state that is very significant for my job: clothes get closer to bare life again. They turn into highly imaginative functional prostheses, and they do so to tell a story. A story that shatters, enchants, tortures, ignites. Because it’s the story of the human that dwells in each and every one of us. As Stanley Kubrick knew too well. And also Milena Canonero, a very dear friend of mine, who accepted my invitation to go back over some of the scenes that hailed her as an undisputed star in the history of costume design. Her presence in this project is moving for me, a very precious gift.

– Alessandro Michele

Stanley Kubrick’s “2001: A Space Odyssey,” “A Clockwork Orange,” “Barry Lyndon,” “Eyes Wide Shut,” and “The Shining” are available to own today on Blu-ray and Digital.

Louis Vuitton Men's inside 360 MAGAZINE.

Louis Vuitton Pre-Spring 2023

Louis Vuitton’s diverse Ready-to-Wear selection this season, offering stand-out pieces guaranteed to break necks. As conceived by the late Menswear Creative Director, Virgil Abloh, the Men’s Fall In Love Collection and Men’s Pre-Spring 2023 Collection are the ultimate embodiment of his renowned artistry. Also from Louis Vuitton, and as designed by acclaimed Womenswear Designer, Nicolas Ghesquière, is the Women’s Cruise 2023 Collection. 

MEN’S PRE-SPRING 2023 COLLECTION Combining bold graphics, patterns, and prints, the Louis Vuitton Pre-Spring 2023 Collection explores the recurring themes of boyhood and coming-of-age, featuring oversized silhouettes, boyish shorts-suits, and vintage style varsity jackets.

MEN’S FALL IN LOVE COLLECTION Louis Vuitton’s Pre-Spring 2023 Collection “Fall In Love,” inspired by the legendary NYC loft parties of David Mancuso. Iconic DJ and music visionary, Mancuso, played music under a banner reading “Love Will Save The Day” tracing all the way back to the 1970’s. He is popularly considered the first DJ ever, a profession that Virgil Abloh believed to be akin to that of a designer– and even practiced himself. The “Fall in Love” Pre-Spring 2023 collection was conceived by Virgil and carried out by his creative teams and collaborators, where they explore how dress codes can be used to promote anti-prejudice and egalitarianism. Echoing David Mancuso’s full record sets, the “Fall In Love” collection mirrors a complete wardrobe. The new designs resemble silhouettes from the 1970’s such as wide-leg and flared trousers, snug jackets, and roll-neck tops, all with the ever present Louis Vuitton elevated approach evident throughout. 

WOMEN’S CRUISE 2023 COLLECTION This collection plays with elements. The Artistic Director chose metallic fabrics and embellishments that reflected the setting sun, some as glassy as mirrors, and other materials that offered protection from it, wrapping long swathes of linen, for example, around the head and across the body. Other pieces lifted design details from water sports; the airbrushed colors of half tops and boxy short skirts apparently came from jet skis. Ghesquière is a designer whose collections are minutely pored over and studied, and some of these gestures looked like callbacks to earlier seasons, only amplified, maximal where he used to be minimal and streamlined. The sun is the Artistic Director’s guest of honor in the Cruise 2023 collection, playing an active part in the evolution of this wardrobe where changes in temperature set a stylistic tempo. The unique light of the West Coast creates prisms across shimmering silhouettes, while a myriad of natural materials gives the illusion of a metallic palette.

Elle features Regé-Jean Page on Canadian cover via 360 MAGAZINE.

Regé-Jean Page × ELLE

KO Media is excited to unveil the November issue of ELLE Canada, featuring British-Zimbabwean actor Regé-Jean Page. The star, who was catapulted to fame thanks the Netflix’s steamy hit show, Bridgerton, and is now the face of Giorgio Armani Code Parfum, tells us about working hard to portray a different type of maleness on-screen: “People think of masculinity and they think of strength, but we need to redefine what strength means. Is it an unwillingness to bend, or is there strength in vulnerability, in being able to listen and adapt?” He also aims to bring that nuanced point of view behind the camera. “As a producer, you have a voice in the conversations about what the story will represent and what themes to explore. It’s like adding a couple more strings to the guitar,” says Page.

For this issue, we spotlight women leading the way in their field by sitting down with the likes of Indigenous actor Kaniehtiio Horn, who grew up on Kahnawàke Mohawk Territory just outside of Montreal and has become a rising star, stealing the screen in shows like Letterkenny and Reservation DogsCurve model and musician Yumi Nu tells us about returning to music, while we go back to the roots with Jamaican performing artist SHENSEEA to discover what makes her tick in her revamped play on dancehall. We hit the books this month too, as Canadian poet Rupi Kaur talks about her new collection and international tour, and author Kate Beaton delves into the emotional and ecological damage left behind by Alberta’s oil sands, in a new graphic memoir.

It’s also a big moment on the beauty front, thanks to our 2022 Beauty Grand Prix sure to fight November grays with tons of juror-favourite picks, while musician Alicia Keys lets us in on her relationship with makeup and personal rituals. Brands display their rising advocacy in this issue, as Lancôme gives a behind-the-scenes look at how they’re putting inclusivity front-and-centre, YSL Beauty breaks down their new global sustainability initiative built around the planet and its people alike, and Toronto-based Céla puts Canadian plants in the spotlight. We also look at a different side of skincare by exploring its importance in the lives of cancer patients preparing for treatment.

In the style—and lifestyle—department, our editors let individuality take over hair-wise by showcasing cuts that highlight self-expression, and layered fall fashions paint the season with a splash of colour and textures galore. Owner of The Studio MTL and personal trainer, Val Desjardins, shares tips to get into top shape during these seasonal changes, while British actor Lucy Boyton makes her mark on-screen and in our pages, and French glamour queen Marion Cotillard lets us in on her fashion musings from the front row of the Chanel haute-couture Fall/Winter 2022/2023 Paris show. Finally, we slow down a bit by checking in for a quick trip to Rome and find out more about TikTok sensation Alexis Nikole Nelson, who details changes in the foraging community.

The November issue of ELLE Canada will hit stands and Apple News+ on October 24, 2022.  

Reebok and Maharishi sneaker collaboration via 360 MAGAZINE.

Reebok × Maharishi

Reebok and London-based streetwear label Maharishi announced their second collaborative project, the Maharishi x Reebok LT Court Hemp, calling on the plant fabric that’s been a mainstay in Maharishi collections since the 1990s. The Maharishi x Reebok LT Court Hemp ($120, GZ9587) is available October 28 exclusively from Maharishi before its wider global release on November 7 from Reebok.com and select fashion retailers.

Founded in 1994 by Hardy Blechman, Maharishi is defined by its ‘pacifist military design’ aesthetic and a strong respect for nature and utilitarian design. Following their spring 2022 collaboration on Reebok’s Classic Leather AZ, this next instalment continues to showcase the brands’ mutual respect for heritage sports footwear.

“This is yet another great opportunity for us to delve into Reebok’s rich archive of classics,” commented Maharishi founder, Hardy Blechman.

Built with an army green rubber outsole, chalk midsole, and an off-white hemp fabric upper, Maharishi’s LT Court Hemp offers a natural, understated take on the 40-year-old court model.

“Hemp belongs to one of Earth’s most versatile, resilient, and advanced plant families, which makes it particularly meaningful to us as a medium for product creation,” explained Blechman, alluding to Maharishi’s dedication to hemp fabrication and use of other organic materials.

Additional key design elements for the shoe include a soft suede heel tab and terry lining, Maharishi all-over logo arch bandage, Maharshi logo window box, and OG LT Court components like a deconstructed toe box and cup sole tooling.

“The LT court is a great court shoe from Reebok’s ’80s archives,” concluded Blechman. “By utilizing hemp and a minimalistic design, the piece stays true to both Maharishi and classic Reebok styling.”

The story is told visually from Maharishi’s studio in Soho, with campaign imagery (HERE) featuring Shy FX, a legendary producer in the UK jungle music scene in which Reebok has been long intertwined.

NEHERA SS23 Show Package in 360 MAGAZINE.

NEHERA SS23

SHOW PACKAGE

“Your shirt is too low. Your pants are too masculine. In fact, don’t wear pants. Dress feminine. That’s too much. Don’t show your midriff. Show your shoulders. Cover up. You’re too dressed down. You’re too dressed up. Loosen up. Wear some color. That’s too much color.”

Femininity was constantly subjected to power judgments, whether through social norms or sartorial verdicts. This made us doubt, overanalyze, and overthink what we put on.

The Spring Summer 23 is a statement for the uncomplicated, the easygoing and the effortless. Furthering NEHERA’s foundation in tailoring, the collection introduces easy to operate wardrobe, mentally friendly and physically enjoyable.

The narrative arc of the collection is liberating the Woman from the tyranny of sartorial judgements and verdicts to empower freedom and self-expression.

The garments are self-evident, speaking and leading the Woman to unforced stylings as well as offering choice and versatility. The palette is urban, confidently exploring color blocking.

Coordinated monochromatic looks that range from understated hues to bold colors. No hesitation or second thoughts. Exploiting the brand’s experience and passion for tailoring, the collection is smoothly assembling sophisticated, deconstructed styles to simple, comfortable suits.

The print of the collection is the result of a collaboration with an artist based in Antwerp and born in Brastislava, Juraj Straka. Having grown up in Slovakia, it was an obvious choice for Nehera to collaborate with him. Having already collaborated for Schiaparelli and Dries van Noten, he comes this season to deliver his knowledge to the house Nehera. He digitalizes his painting to create a powerful pattern.

With SS23, NEHERA makes a statement that high fashion doesn’t need to be mentally exhausting, it can be easygoing yet elegant, simple yet erudite.
