It’s the weekend, baby!
This week we’ve seen plenty of releases, including Stüssy x Nike’s Air Force 1 Mid sneakers, a patchwork collection by Human Made, JJJJound x New Balance 990v3, Pleasures x Dr. Martens, and plenty of others.
Additionally, we launched Highsnobiety Sports, which includes plenty of fun collaborations. From Jack Wolfskin to Satisfy Running, we’ve got you covered whether you’re hiking a mountainous trail or lounging on your sofa.
We also threw a great party in Amsterdam and launched a whole new branch there.
Elsewhere, we saw a drop from Acne Studios’ FACE collection, goop’s weird luxury diaper prank, logo overload with Fendace, and Burberry announcing a collaboration with Pop Trading Company.
To make sure you don’t miss anything, we’ve rounded up this week’s biggest news for you to sit down, relax, and catch up.
“Balenciaga’s meme-worthy footwear often generates spirited debate, but the brand’s latest creation has the internet positively distraught.”
“It’s about time that we started giving custom sneaker designers their due credits and LORENZ.OG’s volcanic take on the new Stüssy x Nike Air Force 1 Mid demonstrates exactly why.”
“After a 45-minute-chat and a few detours, we landed on a definitive ranking of Off-White™’s fragrance collection. Here’s how we got there.”
“Recently, my love for cowboy boots and the whole aesthetic that comes with them has started bubbling up again, resulting in countless hours spent on eBay looking for crazy belts, bolo ties, and cowboy hats. There’s just something about it that has me excited.”
“On the first Monday in May, Brenna Lip had a blonde wig, a MacGyvered press pass, and a plan to sneak into the 2022 Met Gala. Lip, the self-described “queen of sneaking into things,” built her massive TikTok following (828,000, to be exact) with seriously stealthy skill.
“No, Yves Saint Laurent isn’t involved in any criminal scandal (at least, not to my knowledge). On May 9, Young Thug, Gunna, and 27 others were arrested and indicted on 56 counts of suspected gang-related crimes and alleged violation of Georgia’s RICO Act, better known as the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act.”
“adidas x Gucci deserves all the sports-related exclamations. Such is the magnitude of the collaborative collection: it’s a veritable slam dunk, a hat trick, a grand slam. Game, set, match.”
“There’s not much to say about YEEZY GAP Engineered by Balenciaga that hasn’t already been said (and, yes, that is the entire official name and it must be said in full every time) but if you weren’t already plugged-in from the start, it’s pretty easy to fall off Mr. West’s wild ride.”
AMBUSH’s Starbucks Collab Has All You Need for Summer: Coffee & Tequila
What will you be drinking this evening? Just coffee and tequila, and make it AMBUSH style.
After placing her own spin on Nike’s models like the upcoming Air Adjust Force and Dunk High, Yoon Ahn now offers her own take on coffee, linking up with Starbucks Japan for a collab that’ll have you buzzed this summer (either from the alcohol content or caffeine).
With the coffee giant’s Japanese imprint, AMBUSH offers cold brew cocktails that are exactly how they sound: Starbucks’ signature coffee topped off with a bit of liquid courage.
While I prefer my spirits without liquor and my coffee alcohol-free, quite a few are here for the whole boozy pick-me-up vibe, often partaking in combos like Irish coffee and spiked eggnog.
For those who enjoy kicking back with a buzzy cup of joe, you’ll probably enjoy the AMBUSH x Starbucks coffee cocktails flavors, which are cold brew margarita and cold brew tequonic.
Tequila and margarita coffee definitely sounds like a chaotic combination. But, indeed, we’d have to trust that Yoon Ahn’s fashion tastes are equally as good as her food and spirits palate.
As for those not riding the alcoholic coffee wave, the partnership has its cold brew free offering, too (that’s all coffee and no alcohol).
If you find yourself in Japan this summer, you can test out the AMBUSH x Starbucks cold brew cocktails yourself at the Arriviamo bar at Tokyo’s Starbucks Reserve in Nakameguro. Drinks start pouring in on May 27 and will be around till the end of August.
Doja Cat’s 2022 Billboard Music Awards ‘Fit: No Notes
Styled by Brett Alan Nelson, the star donned look 21 from Schiaparelli’s Spring 2022 couture collection, designed by Daniel Rosenbery. Nelson styled the bust-less bustier and bias-cut skirt with gold pasties from Agent Provocateur, a gilded touch that matched Doja’s statement earrings: giant gold ears dripping in diamonds.
The cherry on top? Heels featuring articulated gold “toes” and a Saturn-shaped clutch, also by Schiaparelli.
The “You Right” singer didn’t just sweep the red carpet — she also took home four Billboard awards, including Top R&B Artist.
1 / 2
Over the past year, Doja has established herself as formidable fashion force. In early April, she attended the Grammys in an ice-blue Versace gown, accessorized with a glass Heven x Coperni bag that quickly went viral, fueling a full-on craze for the fragile accessory.
While I have to hand best-dressed to Ms. Planet Her, Megan Thee Stallion‘s custom Mugler gave Doja a run for her money. (I have no comment on Cara Delevingne’s bizarre red carpet antics.)
Now, someone get Doja in touch with Demna.
Hey, You Know Your Levi’s 501 Jeans Are Inside-Out? Precisely.
If you see some youngsters walking around with their Levi’s worn outward, it’s not some new hip trend (though it could easily lead to that outcome). Despite crazes like skants and folded-over Dickies, they’re wearing the jeans correctly because that’s the intention behind Levi’s latest 501 jeans.
As the name implies, Levi’s vintage denim trousers look like they’d been turned outward. One pair touts the jean’s usual light grey lining as its outside appearance. Meanwhile, another pair boasts the denim’s signature dark wash on the surface with a light grey waistline and frayed seams — details usually concealed inside the garment.
Like NIGO’s Human Made collab, Levi’s latest “Inside-Out” 501 vintage jeans are crafted from selvedge denim, aka a denim aficionado’s dream trousers celebrated for their utmost quality, distinctive cuff, and preferred fading over time.
Particularly, Levi’s “Inside-Out” 501 jeans were designed using the reverse side of 1963 selvedge denim from Cone Mills White Oak, an OG denim plant based in North Carolina.
Denim like this takes time, folks — making it hard to produce, too — so it’s no wonder Levi’s “Inside-Out” 501 jeans will be limited with a price tag of 46,200 yen (approximately $357).
With the trousers’ selvedge foundation, denim heads won’t think twice about swiping their card for this exclusive investment. They’ll surely be happy to know the Levi’s “Inside Out” 501 jeans are dropping on 501 Day, May 20, at Levi’s online and physical Harajuku and Osaka stores.
