If you’ve been thinking about new ways to zhuzh up your apartment, your hair, your loungewear collection, or all three, then you’re in luck: This week, we’ve surfaced a newly launched walnut bench from the start-up furniture brand Burrow, some dry shampoo designed to smell like a popular Byredo candle, and a limited-edition overstock tie-dyed tee in a rich raspberry shade.
Burrow just released two new furniture collections: the Bento and the Serif. The former focuses on furniture with smart storage solutions (like an oak side table with a storage compartment and a hidden hole for charging your phone). The latter is mid-century inspired and includes this bench, which, like much of the rest of the collection, features walnut-colored wood and brass accents.
The “Glossier of piercing studios,” Studs, launched in November 2019 with just a few pairs of hoops. Demand was so high that the brand decided to launch the hoops-dedicated Hoopla collection, which includes chunky ones, beaded ones, and jumbo ones. This large hollow pair is already a best seller and offers the statement of a thicker hoop without the weight.
This handwoven rattan egg cup from Cabana Capri’s spring/summer 2020 Gstaad collection (which also includes a Murano glass tumbler and an extremely charming tortoiseshell salad set) is certainly the most affordable piece in the bunch, but not the least stylish. It’s currently available for preorder at Moda Operandi and will ship by October 15.
Beloved hair-care line Ouai has teamed up with Byredo for a limited-edition dry shampoo that smells like its ultrapopular Mojave Ghost candle — at a tiny fraction of the price you would pay for a full-size eau de parfum. Scent aside, it contains ingredients including rice starch, to absorb oil and boost volume, and volcanic minerals, meant to naturally cleanse and detoxify hair.
Brooklyn-based design studio Bower is back for a second collection with West Elm. The first was sort of an intro to the brand and its use of mixed materials; this time around, the theme is spheres and discs. We particularly like this handblown glass bubble vase, which would be perfect for fresh-cut blooms and dried stalks alike.
This mask, made by Succession’s Nicholas Braun (better known as Cousin Greg), is one of the earliest iterations of true Mask Merch we’ve seen out there. It’s currently available for preorder (it’ll ship September 7), and a portion of all proceeds will go to Partners in Health and the COPE Program.
For its latest limited run, Alex Mill, the maker of timeless (not trendy) clothes, has released a small collection of tie-dyed wares made from reclaimed materials. This raspberry-colored T-shirt in particular was made in collaboration with botanical-dye artist Maddie Provost using lac, an insect-derived resin that’s been used for thousands of years. There are only 28 total, but there are plenty of other colors (including a faded plum and a sunshine-y yellow) and designs (we’re also fond of these blue and white jeans).
