Raphael Hotel Waelderhaus, a sustainable hotel, in Hamburg Germany via 360 MAGAZINE.

A GREENER GERMANY

Germany is one of the virtually environmentally friendly nations in the world. Its capacity to maintain carbon neutrality and reduce its footprint in a global economy is unmatched. Hamburg, a port city, is one of the key hubs in the country, but its green thumb rivals are virtually smart cities.

Bridge&Tunnel is a durable fashion house that creates unisex duds from leftovers. Once the materials are depleted, so is the bespoke capsule. Conny Klotz had an opportunity to catch up with our president, Vaughn, as he embarks on a tunnel tour in this sustainable country. Both engage in an introspective conversation about what it takes to be part of a global movement and how it creates possibilities for the less fortunate.

Listen to Conny Klotz and Vaughn Lowery discuss how upcycling has an impact in local communities via 360 MAG available wherever you find podcasts.

Nearby is an eclectic 82-piece eco-friendly refuge for eco-junkies looking for a greener getaway, Waelderhaus. This lodge features a 3-star rating, rustic façade with industrial interior finishings. Overall, the accommodations are state-of-the-art, intuitive, and have the right amount of technology to engage the senses that begin at its science center on the ground zero. The whole area is adventure-oriented for those seeking refuge from the bustle, the infested noise as well as the light pollution. You can participate in canoeing, cycling, walking, or climbing. Further, admire ducks diagonally across swim in a man-made pond at an exhibition building.  Witness photosynthesis in full bloom as the winter comes to an end, and leaves become pigmented by chlorophyll, making the air easier to breathe.

Gucci Gift campaign via 360 MAGAZINE.

Gucci Gift

This year’s Gucci Gift campaign draws inspiration from the world of travel in a nod to the House’s founding history and heritage. Under a starlit Winter sky, a cast of characters boards a fanciful locomotive with an atmosphere that evokes splendor but also a bit of intrigue. Each passenger is on a journey that goes beyond the imagination, tinged with a shared appreciation for that which is beautiful in the world.

Envisioned by Creative Director Alessandro Michele, the images captured by Carlijn Jacobs and the film shot by Jordan Hemingway cast a light on the shimmering and joyful spirit of the festive season. Trolleys, duffels, and cases of different shapes and sizes for carrying all things necessary (and not) take center stage, recounting the House’s imaginative vision of travel, while lace, ruffles, rich velvets, and sequins all add to the magic of the Holidays. The House’s signature bags are dressed for the occasion, presented in tone-on-tone palettes, miniature proportions, precious leathers, and with optical motifs. Passengers showcase a curated selection of fine jewelry and watches as they travel in suites adorned with pieces from the Gucci Décor collection. Vanity tables display elegant, collectible Gucci Beauty designs alongside a Lifestyle selection that includes lounge and leisure wear as well as items from the Gucci Pet collection modeled by a troupe of darling dogs along for the ride.

The Gucci Gift campaign celebrates the magic of the festivities and the joy of sharing these moments with loved ones in the spirit of this special time of year.

Product Details

Echoing the House’s origins, the Gucci Valigeria collection comes to the fore with heritage-infused luggage including the Gucci Savoy duffle and trolley in the classic beige and brown colorway with the green-red-green Web detail. Adding to the selection are briefcases and packing cubes, as well as travel bags in a grey-on-black palette and precious leather styles in black.

For women’s bags, the House presents the Gucci Horsebit 1955 bag, as well as the chain wallet, in bold tone-on-tone hues such as purple, orange, black, and midnight blue. There is also a selection of mini statement bags in pink GG Matelassé leather presenting a textural take on the House monogram. The GG Marmont is reimagined with a swirling optical print, either in black and white or pink and purple. GG monogram bags are also showcased, including an online-exclusive Gucci Ophidia tote enriched with a floral print, as well as mini bags with strawberry charms. Adding a refined elegance to the curation, signature bags in precious leather such as the Jackie 1961 and Gucci Bamboo 1947 are on display in the campaign, as well as a gold clutch from the House’s evening offer. For men, the bag selection of totes and backpacks is defined by the grey-on-grey GG monogram, with matching small leather goods and belts highlighted.

Elevated elegance defines the ready-to-wear pieces for men and women, highlighted throughout the sparkling and refined details. Lace, ruffles, rich velvets, and sequins accent the women’s selection, while sophisticated sartorial silhouettes in tartans define menswear.

The shoe selection includes both daywear and evening options. For women, chunky rubber-sole sneakers and Horsebit loafers get a pop of pastel hues while classic boots in a range of colors are defined by heritage details. As an online exclusive, there is a GG blue Jordaan loafer with a floral print. Continuing the theme of elevated elegance found in the Gucci Cosmogonie collection, there are GG-monogram-enriched platform heels, as well as sparkling mid-height mules and slingbacks in the bold tones of fuchsia, lime green, and orange. For men, there are the Gucci Run sneakers in black and white, as well as a white version with a blue and red Interlocking G detail. For the evening offer, the campaign showcases black patent leather loafers with a black Horsebit detail or a silver Blondie emblem.

The accessories highlight heritage codes. Reversible belts, with a tone-on-tone side or monogram one, put the GG front and center to complete everyday looks. There is also a GG grey belt for men, to go along with the full range of pieces highlighted in the campaign. Wallets, cardcases, and pouches are on display, while keychains also feature the Interlocking G. There are also winter hats and gloves, as well as silk scarves with prints reflecting signature handbag silhouettes.

The jewelry selection includes both fashion pieces that play with star motifs and the House script. The Gucci Flora fine jewelry collection, defined by intricate nature-inspired details crafted in 18k white gold and diamonds, echoes the fanciful atmosphere of the campaign. The G-Timeless watch with a dial decorated with 15 bees is also presented for men and women, portraying the House’s instinct to combine classic designs with whimsical details.

Pieces from the Gucci Décor collection are found throughout the enchanted train, including a blanket with an Interlocking G and star design. There is also a selection of porcelain tableware crafted by Richard Ginori with the black Herbarium motif, as well as cushions with romantic phrases and whimsical details. Gucci Lifestyle pieces are also showcased, with silk pajamas, printed fans, and portable game sets fitting seamlessly into the luxury travel setting. With both gifting and travel top of mind, the Gucci Pet Collection is also presented. The GG pet carrier, along with a GG monogram coat, an Interlocking G sweater, and a green-red-green collar portray how the House’s codes are reinterpreted with an element of surprise.

Products from Gucci Beauty also appear within the gifting curation in the campaign, including the Gucci Flora Gorgeous Gardenia and Gorgeous Jasmine Eau de Parfum, Mémoire d’une Odeur, Gucci Bloom Eau de Parfum, as well as the Eau de Toilette, and a selection of The Alchemist’s Garden fragrances and scented waters.

LOUIS VUITTON – ART BASEL

Louis Vuitton will exhibit selected works by a curated ensemble of the world’s most-renowned artists as part of Art Basel Miami Beach, held at the Convention Center in Miami Beach  

Standout artist collaborations on display in the Louis Vuitton lounge include two wax figures of Yayoi Kusama, created by the artist herself; a panda figure sculpture by Takashi Murakami on a vintage Louis Vuitton trunk; paintings by Richard Prince and Alex Katz; a photo by Jean Larivière, and the now iconic Artycapucines collection.

As a celebration of the Maison’s relationship with Yayoi Kusama – and to mark the 10-year anniversary of the first collaboration – exclusive new pieces will be showcased for the first time as a teaser of the upcoming collaboration.

By participating in the 20th anniversary of Art Basel Miami Beach, the Maison confirms its close and committed relationship to the arts, one that started nearly a century ago when Gaston-Louis Vuitton – the grandson of the Maison’s founder – began commissioning artists to collaborate with the Maison on advertisements and perfume bottles. Since 1988, Louis Vuitton has continued this legacy by collaborating with some of the biggest names in modern art and design, including Sol LeWitt, James Rosenquist, Cesar, and Olafur Eliasson, and curating exhibitions by artists such as Sophie Calle, Dan Flavin and Francesca Woodman in its instore galleries. In 2014, the Maison opened the landmark Frank Gehry-designed Fondation Louis Vuitton in Paris, reaffirming its continuing mission to bring the best of modern and contemporary art to new audiences. 

Louis Vuitton will present during Art Basel Miami Beach, which runs from Nov 29 – Dec 3 at the Miami Beach Convention Center, 1901 Convention Center Drive, Miami Beach, FL 33139.

Carson MacCormac stars in Netflix thriller film Luckiest Girl Alive via 360 MAGAZINE.

Carson MacCormac in Netflix’s Luckiest Girl Alive

Listen to Carson MacCormac chat with Vaughn Lowery on 360 MAG podcast HERE.

Carson MacCormac will soon be seen in a provocative, supporting role as a young Dean in Lionsgate‘s eagerly awaited thriller Luckiest Girl Alive.

”I think this project is fantastic. I’m really excited to be a part of its cast… The Crew and everyone on board is so talented, so I really think it’s going to be a good one.” That’s Carson’s take on his involvement in the project.

This forthcoming film, featuring Connie Britton, Mila Kunis, and Finn Wittrock, brings Jessica Knoll‘s best-selling novel to life. It tells the story of Ani FaNelli (Kunis), a young woman who has a perfect life in New York, which ultimately turns out to be a fantasy. Things change for the worse as she is forced to relive a traumatic incident from her teenage history. After being accosted by a documentary director, she speaks of the nightmare. Afterward, everyone and everything within her world begin to crumble.

MacCormac plays a cowardly and selfish student who is the catalyst for the unspeakable events which took place during Kunis’ adolescence. Carson describes his performance as intense, and it literally terrified him to get so submerged. ”It makes me sad to dive into it when I first got the script,” he says.

It is clear that MacCormac is an arts apprentice and enjoys reading and writing. While the thriller was based in the 1990s, this able-bodied actor handled both the vernacular and temperament of the game with ease. ‘’I love doing roles when I get to play characters that are in a different time frame, a different world,” he confesses.

Directed by Mike Barker and produced by Buddy Enright, this movie will have everyone locked on their flat screens while on the edge of their sofas.

Carson is best known for his role in the hit DC Comics superhero movie SHAZAM! in the role of “Brett Breyer” and will be reprising the role in the sequel SHAZAM! FURY OF THE GODS (Summer 2023).  

Moreover, Carson starred in the lead role of Chris, a teenage runaway, in the gritty independent drama, East of Middle Westby director Brian Lucke Anderson for which he won the Best Actor award at the 2021 Montreal Independent Film Festival.
