You’ve probably been enjoying the better weather over the weekend, and probably haven’t looked at your phone, aside from the cheeky outdoorsy post to Instagram. Whatever you may have been doing, looking at your phone probably was the last thing you did for the day. But that doesn’t mean you need to miss out on all the juicy things going on. Here’s Yung’s list of essential things that happened over the weekend.
Since announcing their collaboration, KAWS and Infinite Archives have now revealed a special t-shirt in support of the Rebuild Foundation – a non-profit dedicated to transforming buildings and neighbourhoods in South Side Chicago. The tee is available in brown and features the text REBUILD, reimagined in KAWS signature print and V-marked eyes. The letters IA correspond to the letters in the same print on the collar back.
Drake’s lifestyle label is making moves. Following the release of its Mike Tyson capsule collection, the Toronto-based apparel brand has relaunched the OVO Essentials collection. The capsule is comprised of comfortable and versatile basics. Originally launched in 2018, the collection now features new fabrics, as well as production and cutting methods.
Streetwear brand Market has once again teamed up with sportswear giant Puma for a round of essential summer style. The collection is produced from upcycled materials and aesthetics, to create comfort-focused trek-ready essentials. Apparel in the collection features hoodies, crewnecks, sweatpants, shorts, t-shirts, and other essential items. If this isn’t a reason to fuel your next trek through the Hatta Mountains, then we don’t know what is.
Luxury fragrance label Byredo is teaming up with Le Labourer, the French workwear brand. The collab debuts with a limited-edition Chore Jacket. The unisex jacket is crafted with linen and cotton and fuses Le Laboureur’s craftsmanship with Byredo’s contemporary aesthetic. Coming in black with metallic buttons, branding comes in the form of Byredo’s famous B logo on the back. The jacket is available here.
Lil Nas X has a penchant for being in the spotlight. The musician has enjoyed some serious star power recently and has just upped the ante with the announcement that he has joined Yves Saint Laurent Beaute as its latest brand ambassador.
