Finally, it's the weekend and, specifically, it's the weekend of Juneteenth 2022.
Highsnobiety has curated a selection of content related to the holiday, including streaming selections, weekend events, Black-owned brands to support, a reading list, Q&A with Black beauty founders about self-care and, courtesy of Ghetto Gastro, a Juneteenth celebration recipe.

Meta revealed its Balenciaga collab, Stüssy rejoined Tekla, VTMNTS returned, Tiffany took London, Ken got himbo-fied, Off-White™ made the AF1 mid extra busy, Joker 2 became a musical, Manolo dressed Elvis, Kanye attacked adidas, and you just got Krissed.
