With a few more hours to go before a facebook attempts to revolutionize the Internet again (with a new full-service email launch), it seems as though next week promises everything great to happen in the world. But before we leap into the unknowns of facebook email, and try to deal with facebook's gradual take over of our social lives as well as inbox, let's recap all things great and small which happened this week. In New York City, Supreme has finally released its first fresh collaborative shoe (a brand new model) with Nike, and Kid Cudi held an impromptu performance at BAPE Store New York, which would have almost erupted into another riot. Meanwhile, moving uptown, Ralph Lauren closed off a block around its mansion and put on a spectacular light show in celebration of its 10 years in digital experience, and another American great, Levi's opened up a fresh concept store in the chic nightcrawler's favorite Meatpacking District. TRON: Legacy continues to command our attention with new trailers and new boots, and last but not least, GQ shared a great insider look at what happened behind the scenes of its recent controversial shoot with the Gleekers.

Supreme x Nike SB 94

Supreme and Nike SB had teamed up once again to work up some kicks, but this time, it's not just about a fresh colorway, but an entirely fresh silhouette. The new Nike SB 94 finally hit stores this week, but sadly, not to a large line-up as we are used to.

bape-stussy-1

Two streetwear giants have teamed up and pooled not just resources, but their signature styles together to celebrate Stussy's 30th Anniversary. Of course, the collection, named "Survival Of The Fittest", is quite a fitting one as it does take some skills and considerable talent for one to have made it this far in the streetwear world. Evolution, of course, is key.
