Our weekend news roundups typically start on a celebratory note — it's the weekend, baby! — but, given what's happening in Europe, we'd instead like to share a list of organizations aiding the people of Ukraine.
Amidst a war, our daily lives aren't exactly business as usual. Still, this week has seen plenty of breaking news in fashion, pop culture, and entertainment.
In Paris, Off-White™ teased a beauty collection, one of the many concepts Virgil Abloh ideated before his death. The city played host to a number of other fashion greats: CELINE, Loewe, and Rick Owens also showed their Fall/Winter 2022 collections during the last leg of Fashion Month.
Drops were also plentiful. Among last week's coveted releases were Drake's NOCTA x Nike Hot Step, OVO x Suicoke's Spring/Summer 2022 team-up, Marni x Veja's color-scribbled kicks, and Stüssy's spooky Beats Pill+.
Now, if you're sick and tired of being mad at Ye (for good reason, it's worth noting), turn your attention to John Demsey, the Estée Lauder executive who Instagrammed a racist meme and claimed he "didn't read it before posting."
"[Virgil Abloh] may be gone but it's still his brand. New clothes. Same brand. Same vision."
"Even if you're a die-hard Kanye zealot unwilling to stray from your idol's side, you've gotta admit that this public drama is dangerous at worst and pointless at best."
"There are several smells, I think, you have to learn to appreciate... I always compare with learning to eat olives. The first olive you eat is really bad. And then after 10, you start to appreciate it."
"The pain of Euphoria is pleasure. Yes, season two left me begging for more but isn't that just like Euphoria, to leave you craving another emotional high?"
"I'm sure this collaboration will be handing out L's aplenty in virtual waiting rooms when it drops."
