This week’s dive into the world of launches and collaborations that we’re pretty sure will sell out includes a sustainable, pillow-forward home-décor collaboration between Eileen Fisher and West Elm, an Away pet carrier that we suspect dog-fluencers will want, and a bunch of merch from Cardi B and the Met, alike.
The Met 150 Edit
The Metropolitan Museum of Art turns 150 years old this year, and a bunch of our favorite brands are celebrating with Met-inspired merch collaborations — all of which benefit the museum directly. You can shop the collection online or, as of this upcoming Saturday, in person, when the Fifth Avenue museum reopens.
West Elm x Eileen Fisher
Eileen Fisher’s designs are known to be sustainable and comfortable, two words that can also be used to describe her limited-edition home collection for West Elm, which features several pillow covers and one $2,000 swivel chair. All of the pieces are individually felted from discarded jeans — in dark indigo, light indigo, and red tones — so every piece is one of a kind.
Novogratz x Target
Robert and Cortney Novogratz’s home décor and furniture often come expert-recommended here at the Strategist, and now they have a collection available at Target. If you’re looking for a desk lamp for your WFH setup, we like the fabric cord and white ball foot on this otherwise simple gold lamp (and it’s $7 cheaper than usual).
Bearaby x The Hyppo Napsicle
A stress relief combination you didn’t know you needed: Bearaby’s beloved (and cooling) weighted blanket in summery ombré hues (Watermelon Dreams! Blueberry Nights! Mango Siesta!), sold with an assorted six-pack of the Hyppo’s gourmet popsicles in those same flavors.
Away Pet Carrier
If you’re heading away for a weekend upstate, or even just around the corner to a (pet-friendly) outdoor restaurant, consider bringing your furry friend along in Away’s sleek pet carrier. We think the sherpa-lined and water-resistant bag is a dog-fluencer tote in the making.
Hum by Colgate
Colgate is the next brand to jump into the millennial-friendly “start-up” electric toothbrush market with Hum, its Bluetooth-connected, app-enabled toothbrush that allows you to track your brushing for better oral hygiene. Hum officially goes on sale September 13, but you can preorder it now on Amazon.
