It’s the weekend, baby!
And boy, did it fly by. We saw Drake and Kanye reunite, Harry Styles’ beauty brand Pleasing sold out in less than a week, the Grammy Award nominees were announced, and Nike is having some supply chain issues.
The Woolmark Prize Finalists were announced, Marcus Rashford teamed up with Burberry to distribute books to children, and Ahmaud Arbery’s murderers were found guilty.
As December is right around the corner, brands are getting ready for the holiday season in full swing. Balenciaga dropped bedsheets and Christmas ornaments, and Gucci released a $600 pen that’s the ultimate stocking-stuffer.
On the footwear side, Nike revealed the Air Jordan 1 Low “Carnivore,” Levi’s and Woolmark made renewable a boot, and Vans x Ray Barbee x Leica created a three-way collection.
Finally, we asked whether the new MacBook Pro is really worth the money, and had a brutally honest conversation about Black Friday.
