It's the weekend, baby!
But there were also some bright spots this week, including North West's Tiktok, Britney & Lindsay's comebacks, Kim passed the baby bar, JAY-Z (maybe) bought an expensive watch, and the wonderful Francis Bourgeois, well, existed.
There were plenty of celeb product tie-ins, too, for some reason. We saw Drake's OVO x Suicokes, Tyler's luggage line, Billie's Air Force 1, and Ye's moto gloves — not a collab, really, but still interesting.
In terms of drops, the YEEZY GAP Round Jacket returned, Nike & CdG created heels, Supreme launched a Gundam, we witnessed a Rolex book, Pyer Moss dished a new sneaker colorway, KITH met Star Wars, Pokémon joined PORTER, and adidas prepped its first NFT collection
There were also plenty of new collections, including SS22 fare from Li-Ning, The North Face Purple Label, and Stone Island, while Givenchy launched Pre-Fall 2022 and Louis Vuitton revealed Virgil Abloh's final lookbook.
Now, if you need us, we'll be styling ourselves in dark academia.

"In acquiring RTFKT and truly becoming a full-time player in the game, Nike has effectively posted its intent to make NFT/Metaverse design a priority."
"The real idea behind this collaboration is to have people question why it's so unusual for two sneaker companies to work together. Rather than trying to one-up each other on performance all these years, what if we'd harnessed all that innovation towards impact as well?"
"We are under capitalist rule, and it’s killing us. It’s time to change that. I’m going to be homeless in a year. I’m going to turn all the homes I own into churches."
