EDITOR’S NOTE WELCOME TO RAINE MAGAZINE Thank you for taking this journey with us over the years. In the spring of 2007, the first issue of Raine was launched. It was launched to fill a void that existed in the market. Our mission is to provide a multimedia platform for the creative and unconventional entrepreneur and to do it in a way that is both inspiring and empowering. My first introduction into the creative industries was as a fashion designer and consultant. As a designer and entrepreneur my day to day was very different from the conventional positions I held in the past. I also met many talented individuals like myself that decided to take a chance on their passion and pursue it as a career. With very few options in digital and print media to showcase the talent and lifestyle of these individuals, Raine Magazine was born. I saw a need to build a community of individuals that are at the top of their game and seeking additional means of getting the word out about their product, talent or service. Raine is the go to destination for the must know in fashion, entertainment, culture and technology. We discover the next big names around the world everyday! Raine provides real stories about real people going after their dreams. It also offers the must know products and services that can enhance the lifestyle of our readers. It’s the combination of beautiful imagery, personal journeys and lifestyle that attracts new readers to Raine everyday. Since launching in 2007 as an exclusive online publication, we have grown quite a bit. Now offered in print and digital, our glossy publication is exclusively available at Barnes and Nobles newsstands as well as industry events. We have increased our print distribution of 200 locations to almost 700 stores nationwide! Our digital edition is available on Zinio.com and coming this Fall, Raine Magazine will be on the Nook, the Nook App, and BarnesandNoble.com. Of course, both digital and print editions are offered at HYPERLINK “http://rainemagazine.com” http://rainemagazine.com. . Need to know more? talktous@rainemagazine.com Scan below to join the storm!

FA S H ION IC ON KENDALL JENNER

FAS H I O N TO LIV E F O R 


Meet Kendall Jenner, one of fashion’s newest rising icons. Jenner is the daughter of Kris and Bruce Jenner and the younger sister of Kourtney, Kim and Khloe Kardashian. Kendall has recently endorsed deals with OPI Nicole Nail Polish, Venus Gillette Razors and along with her sister Kylie is now a “West Coast Fashion Contributor” for Seventeen Magazine. Kendall is known for her keen sense of fashion on the red carpet and is a social media sensation with over 3 million Twitter followers! Raine Magazine had the pleasure of catching up with Kendall and getting to know this dynamic young entrepreneur! RAINE: How would you describe yourself? JENNER: I’m kind of shy but a fun person when I get to know you. I love being with my friends and my family. I like being outside - snow boarding, riding horses and boogie boarding; and I love being at the beach! RAINE: What are some fun facts about Kendall? JENNER: I’m loyal, protective and picky. RAINE: What don’t we know about Kendall? JENNER: I have to have everything perfect. It works in my favor when I’m getting ready. For example, when someone is doing my makeup – if I see something that no one else sees and then fix it, I feel confident. RAINE: What are some of your hobbies? JENNER: During the summer I try to go surfing as much as I can with my sister. We have a lot fun with it because we’re not trying to be pro’s. I love horses! I rode for 10 years. That was my main thing since I was two years old. Also, a year after I started modeling, I got into cheerleading at school.

with and whom I talk to. I need to really know the person and really trust the person to let them into my life. RAINE: How does having famous sisters negatively and positively affect your pursuit of your own career? JENNER: It’s sometimes easier because what I have going for me already. However, I feel that I have had to work a little harder in a sense because everyone around me sees the pictures that I take, so I have to watch out for everything. RAINE: Do you have an interest in becoming an actress? JENNER: No. I think it would be cool but modeling is my passion. RAINE: Who is your favorite Supermodel? JENNER: I love Giselle B.

Alice and Olivia Chanel Louis Vuitton Dolce and Gabbana RAINE: Are you in a relationship? JENNER: NO RAINE: What advice would you give to someone without the name recognition trying to break into the modeling world? JENNER: Follow your heart. Contact an agency; put your all into everything you do and talk to your parents to see what they think. RAINE: What else do you have coming up? JENNER: I have a bunch of stuff going on…stay tuned…

RAINE: Who are your favorite designers? JENNER:

RAINE: What’s your dream? JENNER: My dream is to walk the runway of a huge designer or be on the cover of an amazing magazine. J RAINE: Who was the first person that inspired you to go into modeling? JENNER: My whole family inspired me. I would take pictures of myself and they would be on my computer. My sisters and my mom would say that they looked amazing and that I have to do something about it. My Dad, at first, preferred me being the horse back rider but now the modeling has grown on him. He thinks it’s good at my age to have a job; it will prepare me for the future. RAINE: Is modeling everything you thought it would be? JENNER: Yes. I love being able to dress up and feel confident in front of the camera. It’s also fun to meet new people. However, I didn’t know how tiring it would be. Sometimes I want to pass out at the end of the day. RAINE: What is the most challenging moment you’ve had so far in your modeling career? JENNER: Missing school is challenging. It’s hard to make up the work and having my teachers get mad at me. RAINE: What was your scariest moment on the runway? JENNER: For a second, my dress wouldn’t zip and the scariest thing was that I would look stupid. Afterwards though it was an adrenaline rush. RAINE: Would you describe yourself as innovative? If yes, why? JENNER: I feel like Kylie and I live a double life – we are the Hannah Montana’s. We’re working, we have the Reality TV show and at the same time we’re going to school. Our friends don’t see us any differently – they’ve known us since kindergarten and keep us grounded. When I go to school, I feel like a normal person and I like that. RAINE: How has your life changed since “Keeping Up With the Kardashians” aired? JENNER: Now, I am so cautious with whom I become friends

Tie Society By: Tina Chen

Rai ne M a g a z i n e - V o l u m e 1 2


There are many things that come to mind when thinking about the nation’s capital - a city consumed with the politics of power struggles but a burgeoning fashion scene is not typically the first. Otis Collins and his long-time friend and co-founder, Zac Gittens, are changing that. They are getting politicians (and their proliferate summer interns) on both sides of the isle to put aside their partisan ideologies and come together on at least on issue, their ties. In November of 2011, Collins and Gittens launched a collaborative consumption service for men’s neckties (think Netflix-forneckties) called Tie Society. “We were both working in traditional office environments where ties were a necessary symbol of professionalism, but also as a way to express our individuality” said Collins. To those familiar with the world of fashion, it is no surprise that staying current can be quite expensive and time consuming, but as Gittens said, “We were moving up the ladder, but need to look like we were already at the top”. The two friends who, attended Sidwell Friends School together since they were boys, began swapping ties. “People say professional attire is dead, but what we’re actually seeing is the opposite - the casual Friday workweek is dying. Men are rediscovering that dressing well has numerous benefits in professional and social aspects. There is no longer a stigma associated with looking well kempt. Before long, trading ties amongst themselves expanded to trading amongst acquaintances and as their wardrobe flourished, along with their style reputations. As any entrepreneur will attest to, Tie Society had to overcome a great deal of obstacles - from self-financing down to publicizing the brand. “We made mistakes, but we learned from them and applied those lessons to future decisions. Its only a mistake if you make it twice” said Collins. Tie Society now has members in 40 states, has appeared on the cover of The Washington Post, ships hundreds of packages a month and has die-hard fans who love their new approach to neckwear ownership. As Gittens noted, “The key was, and still is, persistence and dedication to a vision”. The concept is not only clever, but also admirable, as it caters to individuals who do not readily have access to high quality neckwear and/or don’t want a closet full of ties. So how does Tie Society work? Members have unlimited, on demand access to a collection of over 300 designer ties (and growing!) - as their tag line states “Choose the ties you want. Keep them as long as you want. And exchange them as often as you want”. Throw in free shipping both ways and it’s easy to see why guys are joining the Society. The company is rapidly gaining appeal among the young, as well as the old. Their collection is hand picked by fashion stylists with a keen eye for aesthetics, providing top and high-quality products from lines such as Gitman Bros. and Hart Schaffner Marx. The company also carries two of their own brands that are exclusive to Tie Society members: Barbican 1891, which is vintage inspired and hand crafted in one of Italy’s oldest fashion houses and Bear vs. Bull, which is hand made in the USA and is the outward representation of the inward pursuit of excellence. Their collection offers a wide selection of bowties and cufflinks as well. Channeling the ever-popular Mad Men-esque attire, Tie Society offers a classic style fancied by many. Seemingly paradoxical, at least on the surface, this model is actually the smartest, most efficient way to exhibit true class and sophistication. Collins parted our interview leaving a few words of wisdom for future entrepreneurs: “The focus always needs to be on the customer - making them happy and making them need a product they didn’t even know they wanted”. Tie Society is the place to fulfill your desire for a timeless look from head-to-tie whether you’re headed to a business meeting or even a black tie affair. Any lady would surely love a gentleman who sports a great tie.

Rock and Roll is Reborn with Palaye Royale Raine Magazine Speaks With the Rock Band, Palaye Royale, About Their Inspirations, Goals and QuicklyRising Fame in The Music Industry.

By Heather Ulery

38

Years ago you could find the members of Palaye Royale, Sebastian Danzig, Remington Leith  and Emerson Barrett, gathered together in the suburbs of Las Vegas, crammed closely in their private home recording studio for their next jam session.   They  have now received  over 20  million views on YouTube for their new single Morning Light, an  indication that the group might be the next Vegas band to hit big in the music industry.   Over the years the band has worked alongside Grammy Award winning producers who have worked with the likes of Tokio Hotel, David Bowie, Avril Lavigne, Korn, Enrique Inglesias, and Katy Perry. A couple years in the studio and on the road, the band gradually progressed in late of 2011 into what is now known as Palaye Royale  focuses on making a statement not only in the music world but in the fashion industry as well.  Their style is an important trademark for them, an outlet to express their creativity. While they individually have their own personal idols and inspirations, they share some in common,  ranging from poets to filmmakers who highly has influenced the band. Palaye Royale as collective songwriters convey light and dark through,

melodic poetry. The Las Vegas band consisting of Remington Leith the lead vocalist and pianist, Sebastian Danzig the lead guitarist, and drummer, Emerson Barrett.  With a sound so unique it is no wonder Palaye Royale are making it in the big league. They are now starting to pick up speed, making an image for themselves, while at the same time maintaing their individuality. Like any work environment, the music industry presents challenges. The band  have learned to work around obstacles that do not match their vision, remaining true  to themselves. Their music strays from the typical radio dance song, with more rawness and soul than a pop track, making it easy on the ears and instrumentally unique.   Raine  was able to catch up with the band members Emerson Barrett , Sebastian Danzig and Remington Leith while they were busy recording in Los Angeles to learn

more about their passion, goals and what  exactly got the band into the tough life of the music industry. Aside from the groupies, glam and trashed hotel rooms, Palaye Royale are able to emanate the classier side of Rock N’ Roll.

RAINE: Who influences you? PALAYE ROYALE:        SEBASTIAN: As a band we are influenced by filmakers, poets and the iconic rockstars. Individually I’m influcened by Keith Richards of The Stones, Siqur Rós, Steve Lillywhite, Flood, Paul Epworth, Brian Eno, and visionaries.             REMINGTON: My influnences are Joe Cocker, Dave Gahan, and Rod Stewart from The Faces era.         EMERSON: Tim Burton, The Doors,  T Rex and Buckminster Fuller. RAINE: What do you and your band mates do in your spare time? PALAYE ROYALE: We are all really artistic, we write poetry, we are all artists.   We are designing ideas for our jewelry line called SER which stands for Sebastian, Emerson, and Remington.  We designed it with Maor Cohen, who has done

a lot of pieces with Johnny Depp and Kelly Clarkson. RAINE: What are your future plans? PALAYE ROYALE: As a band right now we are in preproduction getting back in the studio to record our debut with a producer who worked on The Killers ‘Hot Fuss’ album and then we will take it from there. RAINE: How do you feel about playing live and touring as a band? PALAYE ROYALE: That’s  a huge thing for us as a band, getting out there, touring and playing live. Part of being a band means you have to play live and portray your sound outside of recording.

RAINE: Where were you born? PALAYE ROYALE: SEBASTIAN: Remington and Emerson were born in Las Vegas. While I was born in Toronto.

Photos provided by Palaye Royale.

RAINE: How would you describe your style musically as well as your fashion style? PALAYE ROYALE: Musically, at the end of the day we are a rock band with an indie sound. Fashionably we are more modern Brit, rock style-looking. It’s not just about having a good song, it’s about looking the part too.

Regenerate and Innovate: Beauty Re-Defined With all the abundant technology in the world today, it is no surprise that the beauty world has moved to the forefront of innovation. The long history of businesses formulating beauty products has included both natural and artificial means, but as of late many brands are returning to their roots - plant roots that is.  Beauty companies have taken hold of scientific advancement in order to create luxury products with natural key ingredients from some of the finest elements on earth. Many are using plant essences to bring beauty buffs the crème de la crème, offering their bounty to consumers eager for a natural change.  A brave new world where science meets nature is the wave of a very beautiful and ultra luxurious future.

C h a n e l’ s SUBLIMAGE

Chanel has done it again. They have researched the world over in order to produce a line that defines indulgence and well-being for the most discerning of tastes. What makes this an innovation in luxury?  The key ingredient is Planifolia, extracted from the fresh fruit of Madagascar’s Vanilla Planifolia plant. Chanel’s SUBLIMAGE line allows your skin to regain vitality and radiate with a glow that enhances your beauty. The SUBLIMAGE SERUM has a silky texture that penetrates the skin to restore and renew cells. SUBLIMAGE FLUID

As is the case with most items from Kiehl’s, this amazingly natural product line has no parabens, fragrance, mineral oil or silicone. Harsh chemicals tend to irritate many skin types, causing chafing and breakouts.  With Midnight Recovery, the job is done with essential oils and botanicals that are proven to replenish and repair the skin while you sleep.  By working with the body’s natural nocturnal activity it repairs and restores your face to its heightened glory.  Midnight Recovery Concentrate is a star product, with its lightweight formula 98.9% naturally derived. Our recommended

Rai n e M a g a z i n e - V o l u m e 1 2

is an ultra-smooth gel to use year-round that will leave your skin feeling pampered with each use.  SUBLIMAGE La Crème, with its price tag in excess of $500, is created using a unique purification system to produce a powerfully potent elixir that leaves your skin glowing radiantly. Our recommended beauty buy from the line is the SUBLIMAGE ESSENTIAL COMFORT CLEANSER that completely removes dirt, oil, and makeup using Camellia and Jojoba oils.  It gently cleanses and preps the face for the varying SUBLIMAGE Skincare line.

beauty buy from this line is Midnight Recovery Eye. This little addition to the 160 yearold Kiehl’s brand will have you saying good riddance to the days of carrying excess baggage under tired eyes.  It removes the puffiness, fine lines and dark circles that creep up on us as our busy lives take over.  Don’t be fooled by the tiny packaging.  Just a small amount lightly dabbed (not rubbed!) under the eyes is enough for this crème to revitalize the delicate area.  After a 16-hour day, Midnight Recovery Eye will have you looking rested and refreshed for that early morning conference or presentation.
