Perhaps one of the biggest causes of celebration this week comes from the hopeful news of BP containing the ridiculous oil spill. Since Thursday, when new caps on the valves are closed, there has been no report of oil leaking into the Gulf anymore. Finally, an epic disaster comes to a seeming resolution. While exploring the concept of corporate responsibility, Philip Morris has been exposed to be using child laborers in Kazakhstan, giving non-smokers more reason to dislike the carcinogenic company. Perhaps, some Philip Morris consumers will be rallying for ethical smokes? Regardless, in a slightly more frivolous world of kicks and fashion, (and on a more lighthearted note) labels have been fulfilling their corporate duties by releasing first looks into next season's collections. For instance, adidas Originals by Originals have finally dropped the looks that will be hitting racks in August and so did Vans, and so on and so forth. Check out some key things that happened this week, and be sure you are staying on top of things!

Supra - Fall 2010 - Signature Collection
A complete look at the Supra family's latest collection drop, this season, Supra makes use of interesting prints and material to create quasi-futuristic bundle of kicks. Shiny leather with white speckles look something like the night sky? Or does the satin all-black high-top remind you more of the milky way? Or, if you are going a little retro, tie-dye is perhaps the way to go.
