A lot of excellent new releases worth snatching up this week, including a lox bag, Cheetos socks, and some very special Ellsworth Kelly stamps.
Baggu’s Lox Plate Bag
Baggu’s new summer collection includes a really delightful reusable shopper adorned with all the ingredients you’d find on a lox plate (lox, capers, dill, soft-boiled eggs, etc.).
Saturdays NYC’s New Candle
Saturdays teamed up with Brooklyn-based candlemakers Joya on two candles; this one, the Citrus Paradisi, is a bit more summer-appropriate, and features “top notes of grapefruit and patchouli Leaf, heart notes of violet, ginger, cypress, and lavender, and base notes of sandalwood, cedar wood, and amber.”
Ellsworth Kelly Stamps
There was much hullabaloo over these Ellsworth Kelly stamps when they were announced back in February. Finally, as of May 31 (on what would have been the artist’s 96th birthday), they are available to purchase via the USPS website.
Amazon’s First “Drop”
The Drop, Amazon Fashion’s new influencer-designed fashion collection (that exists for only 30 hours!) launched yesterday with a set of pieces designed by Paola Alberdi. We like this cotton-candy-pink cotton blazer.
Calvin Klein’s new custom collection lets you add patches and (somewhat disappointingly) already-existing phrases to its basic men’s and women’s bras and panties. We did a few rough mock-ups.
Too Faced’s Damn Girl! Mascara
Forever 21 x Cheetos
Another amazing head-scratcher of a Forever 21 collaboration; this time with Cheetos.
Everlane’s Cotton-Weave Picnic Dress
Eos’s Doughnut-Flavored Lip Balm
Cold Picnic’s Animal Rugs
Saks’s Stonewall Inn 50th Anniversary Collection
Call us a little jaded, but we find that most Pride-themed limited-edition merch feel like a bunch of brands taking advantage of a moment to look virtuous, and the wares are mostly garbagio, and a little, just like, “throw a rainbow on it.” We do think, however, that there are some sort of amazing things in Saks’s Stonewall Inn Anniversary collection. This $5,495 purse that’s a cat in a rainbow-print sweater wearing a beret and sunglasses (and are its nails painted red?) is almost so insane and bananas that we actually kind of love it. Also, these jock straps are fun, too.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
