A lot goes down in a week. From the latest celebrity drama to the newest must-have fashion trend, it can be hard to keep up. Luckily, we’re here for you with a curated list of the week’s most can’t-miss cultural moments. No need to thank us.
The collaboration: H&M is at it again with the designer collaborations (but aren’t they always?) and apparently, the next lower-priced label you’re going to wait on line for three in the cold for is Erdem. The collab was announced with a very dramatic, very floral video directed by Baz Luhrmann. While there’s no lookbook yet, what we know from the vid is that it drops November 2 and includes an amazing leopard coat.
The sneakers: Tyler, The Creator made a bold move and ditched former collaborative partner Vans for rival sneaker brand Converse, and while some seem to think the best shoes he put his name to were Vans, his new One Star kicks are pretty cool. With baby blue uppers, orange laces, and a lining that subtly touts his new album Scum Fuck Flower Boy, they feel true to the rapper’s hip, washed-out, pastel aesthetic.
The oops: Art selfies gone horribly wrong happen more often than you’d like to think (remember the Yayoi Kusama pumpkin debacle?), but it’s not every day we get to watch one unfold on video. That’s right, a truly cringe-worthy episode in which a photo-happy Los Angeles gallery-goer knocks over not one, not two, but a whole row of sculptures by artist Simon Burch is available for your viewing pleasure here.
The noms: Emmy nominations are out, and, as always, there’s a lot to be both thrilled and outraged about. Here’s the good news: Big Little Lies, Westworld, and Stranger Things cleaned up, with wonderful humans Millie Bobby Brown and Shannon Purser receiving nominations for Outstanding Supporting Actress and Outstanding Guest Actress, respectively. Master of None and The Handmaid’s Tale recieved nods, but for some reason, Issa Rae’s delightful comedy Insecure was snubbed, as was Girls, for the most part. People are also pissed that Transparent didn’t get nominated for Outstanding Comedy.
The campaign: Charlotte Gainsbourg for Saint Laurent is one of the most flawless model-fashion house pairings of our time. I mean, could any two entities be cooler or more French? A new video directed by Nathalie Canguilhem proves that no, no they could not. Gainsbourg and those insane $10,000 rhinestone boots that so far can only be pulled off (or afforded) by the likes of Rihanna star alongside model Mica Argaranaz with music by SebastiAn, and the whole thing is sexy and sparkly and Studio 54.
