New year, new launches and (at times head-scratching) collaborations. This week’s edition of Don’t Dillydally includes several Valentine’s Day launches, a Lunar New Year–themed eye shadow palette, and a Givenchy … Super Bowl hat.
Pat McGrath’s Limited-Edition Lunar New Year Palette
Ms. McGrath has released a “Golden Opulence” eye shadow palette and lip gloss timed to the Lunar New Year. The description of this palette — “six sublime shimmers & mesmerising mattes summon the ravishing resplendence & hypnotic hedonism evoked by all tomorrow’s parties” — is quite something.
Mickey Mouse SK-II
SK-II’s Facial Treatment Essence, which our own Rio Viera-Newton has historically gone crazy for, got the limited-edition Mickey Mouse treatment.
Everlane’s “Cheeky” Corduroys
Everlane just launched a range of straight-leg, slightly stretchy corduroys. The “Atlantic Blue” cords are already pretty much sold out, but there are still plenty sizes available in other colors … for now.
Saks’ Super Bowl Collection
Leading up to the Super Bowl, Saks teamed up with a 25 designers (Heron Preston, Off-White, Givenchy, Rag & Bone, among them) on a football/Miami-themed menswear collection called The Stunt. The goods are available to preorder now, but they won’t ship for a few weeks.

American Girl’s Doll of the Year: Joss
Joss, for those who are curious, “is a fierce surfer girl who never backs down from a challenge — even if it means taking a chance on something new, like trying out for cheer.” She is also hard of hearing, hails from Huntington Beach, California, and has brown hair with sun-kissed highlights.
Adam Selman’s Savage x Fenty Lingerie Collection
Rihanna’s longtime stylist and collaborator Adam Selman (he who recommended one of our favorite gifts of the year, a light-up frisbee) has collaborated with her Savage x Fenty lingerie line on a range of frisky Valentine’s Day–appropriate getups.
Lush’s Valentine’s Day Bath Bombs
