It's the weekend, baby!
Go ahead and fix yourself a cold one, head on over to the comfiest seat in the house, and put your feet up to celebrate another eventful week.
As ever, there's been plenty of footwear on offer this week – but it's not all about sneakers this time. Salehe Bembury's Crocs Pollex (watch your mouth) Clogs are back in the spotlight with a trio of new colorways, Dr. Martens' Mules enjoyed an upgrade courtesy of PLEASURES, Grandpa's house shoes got yassified, and Converse joined the post-sneaker society.
If you're yet to cave into the allure of alternative footwear, Teddy Santis' New Balance debut has finally touched land, Yoon's latest Nike is Y2K-certified, A Ma Maniére crafted yet another beautiful Air Jordan and size? managed to get us talking about the Air Yeezy again. Who'd have thought it?
Between NIGO's latest KENZO drop, the return of big bags, some super funky summer-ready shirting from WACKO MARIA, Fendi and Versace turning up the temperature for another hot girl summer, and Oakley reviving a pair of iconic 90s sunglasses, apparel and accessories have been just as busy.
But hey, it's not all about spending your hard-earned cash – Avatar 2 finally received an official title and the promise of footage (truly a miracle), the Selling Sunset soundtrack was pumping through our speakers, Pete Davidson lent his face to H&M, TikTok (aka the world's greatest detective) knocked heads to predict Met Gala 'fits, and Nike opened up an impressive new building dedicated to Serena Williams.
I'm literally out of breath just typing that all. While you relive the week, I'll just be off on a run to prepare myself for next week's carnage. See ya then!
"The Met Gala is less than a week away, and we're gearing up for fashion's biggest red carpet birdwatch by reliving some of our favorite looks from the annual fundraiser-cum-photo-op."
"Last week, I spent a few days browsing the internet for some swimwear ahead of a two-week-long vacation I've got coming up and was surprised to see that I could barely find one bikini or swimsuit that would work for me."
"Leave it to TikTok to do the digging. With the Met Gala right around the corner, the app has been flooded with people's predictions as to who will be attending and what they will be wearing, and honestly, most of them sound pretty believable."
"Gone are the days of tiny bags, because now, we're bringing all of our belonging with us every single day."
