It's the weekend, baby!
And what a week it's been, especially if you're Will Smith. The Slap, as it's become known, echoed across the world and changed lives, overshadowing the crazy 'fits, Euphoria reunions, a surprise adidas x Gucci drop, and $100k goodie bags.
Somehow other things happened throughout this past week. Lizzo dropped shapewear, Jeff Koons sent NFTs to the moon, Kerwin Frost created headphones, André Saraiva teamed with Longchamp, and NIGO took over Jacob & Co.
Big drops were announced too, including NIGO's latest Kenzo capsule, A-COLD-WALL* x Mackintosh, Balenciaga's Track.3 (and Runner Object), GANNI x Juicy Couture, Nike x atmos, and The North Face x Hender Scheme.
Elsewhere, Rolex revealed 2022's new watches — including a bi-color GMT-Master II — Off-White™ began taking crypto payments, Bottega Veneta celebrated the Padded Cassette bag, the YEEZY BOOST 350 "Turtledove" returned, and Team Highsnobiety recounted its favorite luxury beauty grails.

"Beneath (and below) the hood, these foundations are served through multiple elements, including the world-class Agile Chassis System, foot-hugging EndoFit, high-grip Mud Contrapgrip, dual-density midsole, and Quicklace system – basically, the XT-6 is a beast."
"From lab-grown diamonds to iconic vintage reissues and all of the colors in the ceramic rainbow, Watches & Wonders is every watch lover’s dream. We trolled the convention center (with a champagne glass in hand) to bring you our quick highlights of the fair, straight from the source as we see them."
"This is a sl*p-free zone, a safe space in which the unprecedented celebrity showdown is simply a blip in time, unworthy of thinkpieces and self-congratulatory discourse on "comedians' rights" and troubled childhoods."
"Of all the embarrassing things we expected to see on March 27 at the 2022 Oscars, Will Smith slapping Chris Rock wasn't one of them. And, like all headline-dominating celebrity scandals, Smith's slap has already been tied to a conspiracy theory."
