It’s the weekend, baby!
We’re jumping right into Fashion Month as the Spring/Summer 2023 shows kick off in New York. Between runways, parties, and presentations, don’t miss our staff’s favorite spots to shop, eat, and drink.
The start of New York Fashion Week didn’t stop the industry from announcing some major releases and collaborations: Bottega Veneta made ultra-luxe shopping bags for The Strand, Louis Vuitton released a book on Virgil Abloh’s tenure at the house, and COMME des GARÇONS gave shoppers a first look at its Pokémon partnership.
For our celebrity ‘fit watchers, Venice Film Festival served up some major Main Character moments, including Tilda Swinton eating ice cream in Chanel. Adam Sandler stepped out in another pair of huge shorts and Tyler, the Creator’s girlfriend, Reign Judge, flexed her enviable wardrobe out and about in NYC.
It was a big week for footwear, too. New Balance continued to reign supreme, Drake’s OVO made its mark on the BAPE STA, and Supreme and Nike revamped the Blazer.
Before we get into the big news of the week, show of hands: whose phone is glitching after the announcement of the iPhone 14?
