It's the weekend, baby!

And what a week it's been. Highsnobiety's second round of BERLIN, BERLIN programming kicked off in earnest, encompassing everything from BIPOC film societies to augmented reality art to an exploration of the local fetish boutique. And, of course, there's plenty of merch to go around.

New York Fashion Week also kicked off, anchored by heavy hitters like Peter Do. New campaigns from Jacquemus and Calvin Klein launched alongside a victory lap for Nigel Sylvester. Nensi Dojaka was "surprised" to take home the LVMH Prize. Frank Ocean's Homer dropped its Prada collab.

That's not all: we saw plenty of covetable kicks from Nike, Social Status, Jordan Brand, Aries x Vans, and Aimé Leon Dore x New Balance. Dr. Martens has some stuff in the works, to.

Oh, and Philipp Plein is making some upsetting watches.

But who cares, it's time to kick back and relax. While you're taking it easy, catch up on some of the week's other big moments with our curated selection of must-read news and deep dives worthy of your precious weekend moments.

THE WORLD IS FINALLY READY FOR DANA LEE
