This is the week of releases and friendships and everything fun in between. Some of the most notable summer collaborations will finally be hitting racks, serving as the summer blockbusters in the industry; for some other labels, taking things outside into the sun (or sometimes back in the shade as long as one isn't rooted to the couch like aged, rotting potato). Let's just say, aside from soccer and biking related events and items have made it into the news this week, everything else pretty much invites all to squeeze out a little bit of creative juice or are there to lure people outdoors. So, catch up and recap the ten key things which happened this week before your gear up, unlock your bikes, dust off your decks and head outside for the glorious Memorial weekend. Enjoy!
