There’s something for everyone in this edition of Don’t Dillydally — our regular look at the new launches and collaborations worth jumping on — including several beauty box sets, a designer T-shirt for your mini-greyhound, a Star Wars Instant Pot, and apron that (alas) already sold out (but has a wait list).
Glossier Skin-Care Edit
Glossier’s latest launch is a limited-edition box set of mini versions of the brand’s best-selling skin-care products that includes the just-launched Future Dew for those who are curious … Get a set for yourself, your skin-care-obsessed pal, or dole each one out as stocking stuffers.
Violet Grey Violet Box
In other limited-edition beauty-box news, Violet Grey just released its Best Sellers Box that has a $441 (!) value and includes full-size versions of some V.G. favorites like Royal Fern’s Phytoactive Anti-Aging Cream and six Erno Laszlo Multi-Task Eye Serum Masks.
Designer Dogwear at Ssense
The cool kids over at Ssense have commissioned a slew of designers (Heron Preston, Moncler, Burberry, among them) to create exclusive dogwear for the site. This Marine Serre pup T-shirt is one of the more affordable options.
Star Wars Instant Pot
So we are a little embarrassed to say we missed this one when it officially launched in late November, but to our credit, we were a little busy. Luckily, the Star Wars line of Instant Pots are still available at Williams Sonoma, but as the holidays approach, they may not be for long.
Baby Phat Relaunch
At long last, Baby Phat … is back. Already sizes are selling out of the classic velour hoodies.
Glow Recipe’s Banana Soufflé Moisture Cream
The latest fruit to get the Glow Recipe treatment is the banana, and this moisturizer that’s meant to combat dryness and redness seems to have already gone viralish. (Here’s a video of how it gets made that sort of got us hungry.)
Mellanni Silk Pillowcase
Mellanni, makers of some of our best-selling sheets, just launched a 100 percent silk pillowcase for a mere $26 that comes in a bunch of colors. We like the white with stately black piping. (At press time, there’s a $5 coupon, so it’s just 21 bucks.)
We hate to admit that we sort of love the new McDonald’s merch shop. These sesame-seed socks! These hair ties! This tumbler! This T-shirt!
Mejuri’s Bold Chains Collection
Apparently, the “Bold Chains” collection, a less dainty assortment of necklaces and bracelets from Mejuri, has been the jewelry start-up’s “most-requested” launch.
Vybes x Jungmaven
Vybes, makers of CBD-infused “wellness beverages,” teamed up with one of our favorite hemp-based fashion brands Jungmaven on a selection of merch. This short-sleeved sweatshirt made us smile.
Inner Piece Puzzles
A new puzzle company (yes, there are a lot of new non-fusty puzzle companies) called Inner Piece launched last week. The L.A.-based brand creates artist-designed puzzles and donates $1 of every one sold to youth-mindfulness programs.
Claire Saffitz for Alex Mill Apron
This is how popular the Bon Appétit video personalities are: When the folks at Alex Mill saw Claire Saffitz wearing the clothing line in her videos, the team reached out to her to create a limited-edition apron. Now, just a few hours after it launched, the apron is sold out — but you can get on the wait list.
