Review of SHEIN, Nike Dunk Drop Calendar, Balenciaga x adidas
It’s the weekend, baby!
To kick off our weekly recap, let’s cut out the scary stuff: Elon Musk wants to buy Twitter, Travis Scott is launching his comeback, Kim Kardashian and Pete Davidson have a date with Jeff Bezos, and fast fashion giant SHEIN is looking for a valuation of 100 billion dollars.
However, the week was not dark and catastrophic. Lizzo launched a shapewear brand, Highsnobiety got its hands on viral Heven x Coperni glass handbags, and Al Pacino was confirmed as the proud owner of a Shrek iPhone case.
In just a few drops, Supreme released bloody T-shirts, Billie Eilish and Nike unveiled an eco-conscious Air Force 1, and Therabody released a Theragun for your face. Not all releases have gone smoothly – MSCHF and Tyga’s “Wavy Baby” shoe, set to debut on April 18, is now the subject of a lawsuit filed by Vans.
Now, before diving into our review of the week, take a minute to check out Palianytsia, a newly launched website compiling a master list of Ukrainian fashion brands to support.
