Even though Jordan just signed a deal with esteemed One Management, he understands he wants to prove his inner demons wrong. When he talks to Lowery, he begins to realize that he needs to keep doing things differently. They talk about self-care, punctuality, personal touch, spending time alone with your booker so you can stay in their minds.
Since the lockdown as a result of COVID-19, the industry has suffered greatly from models and agents who have lost their jobs. In fact, The Industry Model Management closed the doors of their Miami office during the two-year hiatus.
With spellbinding eyes, good bone structure in tandem with natural hair, Jordan could well be what the advertising and fashion sector needs to help rebuild their monarchy.
This new chapter celebrates the LV Monogram Star diamonds and offers a unique vision of diamonds through unprecedented creations that spark universal emotions and transcend individual personalities. As symbols of commitment, these pieces of jewelry pay homage to our bonds with other people, both to loved ones and to ourselves. They are there to celebrate each facet of our lives. The LV Diamonds collection reaffirms our attachment to ourselves and others, and to those precious moments spent together.
LV Monogram Star, A Revolutionary Cut
The monogram flower, Louis Vuitton’s iconic pattern, resonates throughout the House with its timeless and bold design. With the LV Monogram Star diamonds, the motif confirms its status as a symbol of eternity. Innovation, tradition and technology, combined with creativity and jewelers’ savoir-faire, have inspired the Maison with this specific cut, named LV Monogram Star. Instantly recognizable with its fifty-three facets with pointed ends, it repreises the star-shaped monogram flower created by Georges-Louis Vuitton in 1896. A bold, graphic cut, with a brand new outline to make the sleek authentic jewels sparkle like never before.
The exclusive pieces in the LV Diamonds collection designed by Artistic Director for Watches and Jewelry, Francesca Amfitheatrof, showcase LV Monogram Star and brilliant diamond cuts. Rings, unisex bands with understated yet bold designs, earrings and pendants are all tributes to the Mainson’s signature aesthetic. The platinum, rose gold or half-aveed rings rekindle the Art Deco-style V with the Gaston-Louis Vuitton would have adorn his suitcases in the 1920s and 1930s. An even more precious version is enhanced with a central LV Monogram Star diamond, while another one dominates over other rings made of platinum, encrusted or entirely paved with diamonds. THanks to the Louis Vuitton jewelers’ expertise, this monogram flower is turned into a bezel, with tiny V-shaped claws embracing the curves and edges of this rare gem. Playful and graphic, irresistible bands complete the collection with a sparkling checkerboard that calls to mind the Damier canvas created by Georges Vuitton in 1888. Finally, a pendant and earrings, new daily essentials combining the must-have brilliant cut with a flower paved with diamonds let a double motif in diamond and gold resolute on the hollow of the neck or the ears. The new jewelry sets are highlighted by the harmonious use of the same colors and materials – the white and pink of gold, the purity of platinum and the intense shine of diamonds. These exclusive unisex cfreations were designed to be worn by themselves or in conjunction with other pieces, combined, stacked, or mixed or matched in an eternal dialogue.
The LV Diamonds Certificate
Louis Vuitton presents the first LV Diamonds certificate. This document reflects their commitment to transparently sourcing their gemstones. Provided with each LV Diamonds creation set with a central stone, this unique file lists each diamond’s weight, color, purity and cut quality. It also tracks its journey, from the country where the diamond was extracted until its arrival in its case, through the workshops where it was cut, polished and mounted. Each chapter in the story of an LV Diamonds creation is written down, thus carefully documented. In order to reinforce such a certificate’s security, Louis Vuitton uses blockchain. This modern technology, operated by Aura Blockchain Consortium – a platform dedicated to the luxury industry – allows for the recording and issuing of forgery-proof data thanks to decentralized storage. This solves many issues related to responsible sourcing, as well as the diamond’s durability since the platform provides direct access to the stone’s history, and its life cycle from its creation to its distribution.
McFly has made the Bronx his inspiration. Last June, he was interviewed by us and told us about his passion for fashion and explained what kind of design he creates for his clothing brand. Signed by McFly was created in 2013 with a single graphic t-shirt and has since increased into an extensive range of clothing pieces and accessories including joggers, sneakers, goggles and even cargo pants.
Listen to McFly talk with Vaughn Lowery about new designs lined up for the winter season and upcoming projects for 360 Magazine.
McFly confirms that this summer he has been able to see the trends that he had predicted at the beginning of summer in the streets of the Big Apple, “Quality, comfort and sustainable styles have been incorporated in bright and earth tones combined with eclectic sneakers. In addition, he adds that fabrics such as cotton have been the ones, he has seen the most. Listen to Mugzy McFly’s previous podcast with Vaughn Lowery on summer 2022 trends click HERE.
Instead, for the winter season he will incorporate designs with slightly more strange colors: mint. In addition, he wants to combine these colors in garments such as hoodies, for example he is very aware of the typical and traditional black hoodie, although he does not rule out adding more vivid colors such as yellow, pink, or purple. He foresees that the chosen material will be cotton again and something that he has in common with summer clothes is comfort. Even one of the star designs of his brand will be the bubble jackets not only for men but also for women. We can’t forget about footwear, a pedestrian accessory of Signed By McFly’s main clothing. This time it is a more functional shoe with a sporty touch. He is a basketball fan and would like to create ”those basketball player feet for next year”. For inspiration “I plan to go to the Flyers basketball tournament, which is completely decked out in my stuff.”
Accessories is one of the options that he is designing for this year. The theme: back to school. Own designs such as composition notebooks. In addition, the fanny packs are going to become a design and trend in his brand, for this he wants to design a classic PVP logo or an embroidered logo. Finally, hats will continue to be designed but this time with different textures than the previous ones.
Now, the designer is working on more graphic and higher quality clothes, ”I want to go back to looking for more graphics on things”, so he wouldn’t mind spending more money so he can design clothes that are better quality and different from what that people normally see.
Their designs are unisex with flattering silhouettes and elegant use of orange details. The style construction leans towards high-end clothing and high street.
Mugzy’s 2022 summer and winter collection are inspired by the slow and calmness of the previous years, aptly defined as “comfy elevated” with neutral earth tones and calm prints.

Most people have been there, you’re enjoying a nice hot shower and want to wash your hair. That’s when you realize you have no shampoo left. If you’re lucky you have two options.
Use the man’s shampoo in the shower
Get out of the shower and check your cupboards for another bottle of shampoo
Let’s face it, number two is never an appealing option!
Fortunately, the simple answer to whether women can use men’s shampoo is yes. Let’s take a look at why this is the case.
Before you start delving into men’s and women’s shampoos, it is important to remember that products are designed for specific types of hair. It’s important to choose a product designed for your hair type and one that has natural ingredients. If you’re still looking for the best possible shampoo then try one from the Kerastase shampoo range. You’ll be impressed.
The Difference between Women’s & Men’s Shampoos
The main difference is obvious as soon as you open the bottle, the aroma will hit you. All cultures have products for men that smell differently from those made for women. In general, women’s shampoos have a more floral smell while men’s are more masculine, perhaps earthy smelling.
What is interesting is that the aroma may be different but the product is basically the same.
In other words, the ingredients are designed for certain types of hair, they are the same regardless of which sex shampoo you have. It’s simply the aroma that makes a difference.
Marketing Plays A Part
By itself, this may not be enough to convince you to purchase a women’s shampoo over a man’s. However, manufacturers are very clever and use marketing to ensure you know which is which
This helps to increase the amount of shampoo sold which is good for business.
A key part of the marketing is showing adverts that depict men using a certain product and women using another. All the adverts express the same sentiment as the packaging. Namely, male things are used to sell male shampoo.
In marketing terms, a male shampoo is more likely to reflect a car, a famous spy, or something else that men perceive as masculine. Failing this, they are likely to be plain and simple.
Women’s products are more likely to be floral and softer to look at and hold. The design of the bottle is often more natural, even holistic.
Men are generally associated with musky and earthy smells, while women have more floral smells. Products are deliberately marketed differently with the various scents to ensure that men feel more masculine and women more feminine.
Yet, the two products are effectively identical, you simply need to read the ingredients and the differences will be minor. In fact, the differences are likely to revolve around the aroma and nothing else.
Consider this next time you look at the available products, although you’re still likely to choose your favourite natural women’s shampoo. At least you know you can borrow your man’s when you need to.
Innovation, Made in Italy and the Japanese culture meet in the new Dolce&Gabbana x Jujutsu Kaisen Special Collection, creating new synergies between art and style.
The Jujutsu Kaisen universe, which became highly popular in Japanese culture, has inspired Dolce&Gabbana in the creation of a new – yet coherent with the brand’s DNA – Special Collection. Dolce&Gabbana’s vision meets the Japanese creative universe, from the Mix&Match to the street style aesthetics of many vibrant and contemporary districts of Tokyo, among which Shibuya and Harajuku. The seemingly distant creative universes of sartorial excellence and pop culture, intertwine uniquely in this Collection, introducing a new form of beauty. Symbols and stylistic elements, that can be traced back to the identities of the various characters, are translated into garments and accessories with a strong personality.
The Collection introduces a special no gender aesthetic: cotton and jersey T-shirts and sweatshirts are combined with nylon jackets. All personalized with screen printing, digital 3D prints and ideograms, symbols of the Japanese universe. All these elements create tactile games and a three-dimensional thickness. The art of anime and the innovative spirit of the younger generations talk with the Italian manufacturing tradition.
The Collection creates new links between fashion and art, culture and lifestyle. The Dolce&Gabbana x Jujutsu Kaisen Special Collection will be available in selected boutiques in Japan starting end of April.
It’s really all about the little things, especially when it comes to your outfit. Everyone has that sense when a look is complete, there’s just a feeling about it where being excited and proud merge. That point where you are thrilled to be seen in your perfectly completed ensemble that you can just sit back and let the compliments flock in. There’s a newly recognized beauty and fashion accessory making this all happen, temporary tattoos.
Metallic temporary tattoos are the best way to enhance your look with ease and are a huge fan favorite for those who attend music festivals, the beach, or other outdoors events. You can adorn Topical Tattoos with your beach day look as shiny tattoo bracelets and body jewelry, or use them as delicate design accents to complete your look regardless if it’s a sexy date night or Sunday brunch with friends. Topical Tattoos are completely safe and non-toxic, making them fun for kids and families too!
Topical Tattoo launched during COVID when owner, Melissa Bell, started experimenting with accessories to boost her mood while being stuck at home. She thought that the simplicity of the items provided a lot. She could enjoy them just for herself, regardless if anyone else would see her decked out in the temporary tattoos or not. Starting a shop isn’t an easy or quick accomplishment though, especially when you have a current career you’re committed to for the majority of the week days and nights. Etsy seemed like a good platform to launch while working on her website, testing appropriate markets, analyzing customer preferences, and deciding new designs and styles to add to her storefront.
With everyone getting back out and the world opening up again, everyone is hunting for a way to amp-up their outfit with minimum effort items that add a dramatic effect. Temporary tattoos are the quintessential beauty and fashion accessory that won’t break the bank but embellishes any look depending on the color and design of the temporary tattoos from the various metallic, black, and white tattoo color options to choose from. We all remember playing with sticker-like tattoos when we were younger. It’s no lie that we all know how long temporary tattoos have really been in our lives. Now we have a fresh new take – more unique and stylized choices for fun or glamorous looks.
Just take a look at the celebrities embellishing their moisturized skin with these gypsy-styled, minimalist pho bracelets, necklaces and designs. The women we idolize for their fashion sense have all dawned these boho tattoos, including celebrities like Beyonce, Jessica Alba, Selena Gomez, Vanessa Hudgens, and Taylor Swift to name a few. They’re shockingly stunning and delicate when placed on the collar bone, kiss the upper cheeks, or get delicately pressed on the stomach and thighs– anywhere on your body works!
You can pair a metallic choker tattoo with a soft gold chain link necklace. You could also place a vertical design running down the center of your chest starting at your center collarbone. Then place a simple necklace that also graces the collarbone and just barely overlaps the metallic temporary tattoo.
Everything about Topical Tattoo’s fashion and beauty accessories has been carefully planned right down to the packaging. Topical Tattoos knows that great brands provide an ample number of sheets per order, which is precisely why they offer 5 sheets in every order as customers need options for each different look they put together. There are so many possibilities to upgrade your outfit for any situation. Luckily, now is the time to get started playing with your look in new ways, while supporting a small business shop. Shop now!
The modern commuter – pedaling their way through downtown, in a rush to get to their job safely and speedily, interested in an eco-friendly way to ride – demands a certain level of excellence from their transportation. Bikes are an obvious solution, but beyond traditional bikes, ebikes are increasingly a solution for dynamic city streets, hilly terrain, and more. The AvadarC3-City ebike rewrites the rules in the realm of ebikes, creating a dynamic experience for the modern rider.
With the ever-growing demand for ebikes, Avadar has built a contemporary one. From a brand whose products are for those who simply love to ride, Avadar emphasizes fit and function. The brand’s philosophy ensures their bikes are simple to use and reasonably priced.
360 MAGAZINE had the opportunity to test out one of these ebikes on the streets of the Bronx – an iconic neighborhood that is a mix of flat and rolling terrain, steep hills and pot holes – and found the ebike more than delivered. Read on to hear about the difference of an Avadar bike.
At 59lbs, the Avadar C3-City ebike allows for a sturdy yet lightweight ride in all contexts and all terrains. Whether its biking to work in the mornings or enjoying an adventure ride through the mountains, the Avadar can conquer any terrain.
Regarding aesthetics, the bike comes in two eye-catching shades: red and blue. The metallic midnight blue color of the bike is a new color from Avadar, a slick hue that immediately draws the eye. The aerodynamic structural elements paired with futuristic flare of the Avadar set it apart from competing ebikes from a style standpoint.
The size of the Avadar itself is a secure and adaptable length of 183 cm and is accompanied by a 2smooth, aluminum construction and feel.
With a sharp aerodynamic design, the Avadar demands attention. The soft tail seat provides great cushion for any riders traveling a further distance. Further convenience stems from the ability to adjust the seat to the perfect height, guaranteeing an easy ride no matter the destination. Further fitting the bike to one’s own body and comfort is the Avadar sizes, M or L, granting even more customization.
The Avadar comes with wheel fenders and a rear bike rack for maximum convenience. The highly stylized fenders defend from dirt, weather and other messes. The bike rack ensures simple transport for the bike on the go. The integration of a removable integrated battery (RIB) is encased in the frame or “rib cage” of the bike, easily hidden from the eye, further assures that the bike is as easy on the eyes as possible, while providing an ideal ride.
With a unisex design, this bike is great for those looking for an elegant, innovative style of bike.
With a 0-5 level pedal assist, the bike allows for a customization of power levels dependent on varying terrains and inclines. No matter how great the need, Avadar can provide a push. The 10Ah battery can fully charge in a mere four hours, making it easy to charge overnight or while at work. In combination with the pedal assist mode, Avadar can provide a distance of 100KM/62 Miles, perfect not only for the commuter, but long-distance riders as well.
Another exceptional feature is the LCD screen, providing easy to read speed, mileage and power information. Like the LCD display found on the Himiway Escape, The LCD screen is found beside the handlebar of the bike for maximum amenity. Data collected during rides pops up on the screen with IP67 TFT Color Display, controlled by the push of a button.
Night rides can provide a challenge for even the most experienced of riders. But the use of a 36V LED headlight ensures full visibility throughout the course of an evening ride. The brightness of the headlight ensures no need for extra lights on the Avadar. The use of an integrated light system permits no wires are out and in the way of the performance of the bike. This assures safety, security and style.
Another unique quality of the Avadar is its ready to ride availability. The mid-motor of the bike has a throttle sensor that allows for performance adjustments while riding. This portion of the bike acts as the “brain” – with torque sensing the modifications riders themselves make as they go. It gives smart technology a new meaning – a ride through the city running errands will be organically improved on its own, no brain power of an owner required
Functionality & Customization
One of the best customizations for the Avadar is the removable integrated battery (RIB). The RIB is a one-piece battery fit with a cover and built-in handle, allowing for easier removal and reinstallation. The RIB fits in the frame of the “neck” of the bike. If batteries lose their power on the way to dinner with friends, bring the RIB right along inside to charge while wining and dining. The Avadar provides ultimate functionality.
A middle bar in the “torso” of the bike allows for relaxed moving access and transportation of the bike. Hopping on the train? Pick the bike up by this section, which essentially can function as a handle, and jump on. This allows for simple and effortless travel with the bike.
The Avadar isn’t just a bike that looks pretty – it has the powerful technology to back up its good looks. With the one-of-a-kind use of a mid-drive motor, this skyrockets the climbing ability of the Avadar. Offering 80Nm of torque, the mid-drive motor certifies an effortless and smooth handling ride. Located near the bottom bracket, the 250-watt motor maintains speeds up to 28mph.
Similarly impressive, the Avadar employs high-end hydraulic brakes. The hydraulic brake systems use brake fluid to diffuse force in the brake system. This system of breaking is far more responsive than typical brake pads, allowing for effortless stopping in all kinds of weather, further promising a safe ride.
The Avadar C3 ebike is known for its effortless ride ability with front suspension. The bike has no suspension on the back but combined with the mid-motor and suspension in the front of the bike, balances out for a light and easy ride. Suspension being placed in the front ensures speedier pedaling, especially in sprints to catch the train or on climbs up hilly terrains.
The Avadar C3 ebike allows for great mobility and efficiency. This bike is great for students needing a means of transportation to get to class, a DoorDash-er delivering food to their customers, or a young worker looking for an eco-friendlier way to get to work. The Avadar is great for those on the go but can also be useful for more laid-back lifestyles. Yet the Avadar isn’t all about speed and efficiency – its pleasurable riding experience means it is ideal for a leisurely ride around town or summer cruise on trails with friends. No matter the lifestyle needs, the Avadar is ideal.
Priced at $2180, the Avadar C3-City ebike is great for a user looking to get the most out of their purchase. Great for ages 16+, integrate this bike into the fabric of daily life. The Avadar is guaranteed to get anyone where they need to go.
