It's the weekend, baby!

And what a week it's been. Between Kravis' spon-con wedding, L'oreal's rumored Byredo acquisition, Anti Social Social Club's acquisition, Swedish House Mafia's IKEA collection, and Kim Kardashian's Beyond Meat blunder, we didn't have time to breathe.

On top of that, leaks came to a head with the Balenciaga x adidas reveals, amplified by Yeezy himself.

Speaking of, Kanye teased his own McDonald's meal before dishing his latest YEEZY GAP Engineered by Balenciaga collection, though it didn't stave off mixed reviews or GAP's financial woes.

The drops came hot 'n heavy, as well, with Supreme's Nike gear, Awake NY's Crocs, thisisneverthat's New Balance, Louis Vuitton's Pre-Spring 2023 collection, Jordan's "Red Oreo" 6s, NOCTA's black Hot Step, Gucci's ŌURA ring, Engineered Garments' Suicokes, KITH's Summer 2022 collection, Aimé Leon Dore's disappearing New Balances, and Nike's new women's football kits and Air Rifts all appearing over the past week.

Elsewhere, Chanel opened some private boutiques, Travis Scott's Air Trainers resurfaced, Louis Vuitton exhibited its Air Force 1 collection, and we reminisced about porn star Ilona Staller took Cannes.

Now, if you need us, we'll be changing our pillowcases.

It's Electric! Drake's Custom Arc'teryx Jacket, That Is

What's Going Down at Glossier?

"Weiss was central to building the Glossier empire —  a business that, at launch, offered an exciting alternative to heavy-handed, maximalist makeup best worn by the Kardashians. Her departure marks a momentous moment in makeup history."
