This week’s edition of Don’t DillyDally is all about convenience: from Warby Parker’s brand-new anti-fog spray that clarifies misty frames (which most all frames are now, thanks to frequent mask-wearing), to a refillable floss pick from Quip that is basically the equivalent of 180 plastic picks in one.
The new spray, meant to demist fogged-up glasses (an endemic issue now, thanks to frequent mask-wearing), is part of their Clean My Lenses Kit, which includes the spray, a microfiber cloth, and a microfiber lens pouch which you can also use as a cleansing cloth.
Primary x Colugo
Colugo, makers of the incredibly lightweight, Strategist-favorite Compact stroller (it weighs 16 pounds and folds down super-easily), teamed up with Primary to add three limited-edition, superbright colorways to several of their best-selling products. This includes said stroller, which is now available in this bold red shade.
Made In Cookware x Nancy Silverton
From chef-designed cookware brand Made In Cookware, a limited-edition, fancy bread knife created in collaboration with chef Nancy Silverton, who is credited with bringing artisanal bread-baking from Italy to the United States (by way of Los Angeles). The knife has a nine-inch stainless-steel blade and wide, serrated points, which, according to the brand, makes for a superior carving experience. It’ll also look nice among your other knives, thanks to its ivory resin handle and decorative brass rivets.
John Derian x Threshold
Target’s home-décor line Threshold has teamed up with John Derian for some especially tasteful Halloween décor. Inspired by vintage 18th- and 19th-century drawings, the collection features some cool-looking finds, including this posable, life-sized, 63-inch skeleton pillow, which can be hung up or seated in an armchair and is made from 100 percent cotton. The collection will be available online and in-store on October 10th, but in the meantime you can peruse the entire collection here.
For fans of disposable floss picks, Quip just released a refillable option that’s basically the equivalent of 180 plastic ones and comes in four sleek metallic shades. The floss is kept in a mirrored metallic carrying case and changes out at the press of a button, making it an easy-to-use, sustainable alternative. Though pricier than a pack of floss picks up front, you can buy minty refills from the brand, which will only run you $5 and can be delivered as often as you need.
In inevitable news, Pornhub now makes sex toys. The selection includes the basics: G-spot stimulators, bullet vibrators, and this rechargeable hitachi wand, which has a traditional smooth head along with three additional heads (a textured one for additional stimulation, a rabbit head for insertion, and anal beads) plus eight speeds and 20 vibration patterns.
For fans of designer masks, Marine Serre recently released a few featuring their signature moon print — the same one from Beyoncé’s bodysuit in Black Is King. It’s made from recycled materials and has ear loops that connect to an adjustable strap. We like this pretty chocolate-brown shade in particular, but it’s also available in beige and plain black.
Makers of status-y hand soaps, lotions, and deodorants, Aesop is now selling candles. We’re fans of the “Aganice” in particular, named after an Ancient Greek astronomer known for her knowledge of the moon and its cycles. It smells of cardamom, mimosa, and tobacco, and is inspired by the scents of Cape Spartel in Tangier.
Star Wars x Pandora
USPS x Casetify
There are plenty of reasons to support the USPS right now, especially for its role in the upcoming election. In an effort to do just that, Casetify is releasing a USPS-themed collection that includes Apple watch bands, two-in-one grip stands, AirPod cases, a sweatshirt, and of course, phone cases. This case, which looks like airbill postage, is particularly fun, and can be customized with an address of your choice. Every purchase will directly support the USPS, though it’s not clear exactly how much.
Sant and Abel x CW Stockwell
After selling out the first time, sleepwear brand Sant and Abel restocked their Martinique banana-leaf pj’s, which were designed based on the iconic 1942 print by CW Stockwell. There are options for the entire family, with shirt-and-pant sets available for men, women, and kids. We’re partial to this sleep shirt, which has a relaxed fit and is made from French cambric cotton. The collection is currently available for preorder, and begins shipping October 12.
Dover Street Market x Adidas
Cole Haan x Slack Sneakers
And Cole Haan has teamed up with Slack — yes, the business-communication platform Slack — for a limited release of their Generation ZERØGRAND silhouette in four Slack-themed colors. The lightweight sneaker has a knit upper and a colorful, springy, shock-absorbing sole, and is designed to mimic your foot’s natural flexibility and movement.
