This week the news cycle was dominated by Ye and his regular erratic behavior. Brands are fleeing him like the plague, and he reportedly lost more than $1B in personal wealth when Adidas cut ties. Will Ye try to set up shop and take Yeezy independent? More interesting question: when will he take Yeezy into the metaverse? Startup accelerators are still hot, gaming collabs are even hotter. The space is alive, punk is not dead, and these are the digital fashion+luxury stories that moved the needle for the week ending Friday, October 28, 2022.
