For this week’s edition of “Don’t DillyDally,” we’ve surfaced a range of items we’re sure will sell out, including new honey from Brightland, a do-everything ointment from Topicals, and bright-colored underwear from Parade.
Brightland, which makes good olive oil and fancy vinegars, is expanding to honey. Their first offering is a two-pack: The Couplet. California orange blossom is “intensely floral with a clean, citrus taste,” and Kauai wildflower has a deeper, amber color and a “molasses-like finish.” Like their olive oils and vinegars, the honeys are sourced from small family-run farms in the U.S.
Warby Parker Tortoise Collage Collection
In Warby Parker’s new tortoiseshell collection, every design is a slightly different take on the iconic pattern. The Tatum adds speckles while the Gaines has a more zoomed-in, blurred effect. Currently, the tortoise collection is available in four frame styles and starts at $195.
Anova x (RED)
Anova is known for their sous vides, which are easy-to-use, app-controlled, and a surefire way to make an incredibly tender steak. They’re giving all three sizes of the kitchen tool a slight makeover thanks to a partnership with HIV/AIDS nonprofit (RED), swapping the sleek black on black for subtle red accents. Five percent of the proceeds from the collaboration will go to the Global Fund, with a minimum guaranteed donation of $200,000.
Sperry x Rebecca Minkoff
Sperry and Rebecca Minkoff are collaborating on a limited-edition capsule collection that takes Rebecca Minkoff’s signature aesthetic (think: leather, studs, hardware) and applies it to Sperry’s classic styles. We think these studded leather boat shoes are a perfect marriage of the two
Merrell Birthday Pack
Also on the classic shoe front, Merrell recently released a confetti-covered collection called the Birthday pack. Colorful speckles appear on jackets, socks, and the Moab hiking boots, beloved by hyperenthusiastic reviewers for their breathability and super-comfy fit.
Caraa Hiking Waistpack
And to take with you on that hike, Caraa has released a hiking waistpack, which in true Caraa fashion has lots of dedicated pockets for anything you might need. There are two expandable water-bottle compartments, sheer mesh pockets for your phone and other important items, and tiny daisy hooks for hiking gear like a carabiner or your keys. It’s currently available in five colors, including the go-with-everything olive, pictured here.
Topicals Slick Salve
Topicals, which makes hyperpigmentation-clearing, sensitive-skin-friendly skin-care products, recently released Slick Salve, an all-purpose ointment meant to be applied anywhere you feel dry. It’s fragrance-free and dye-free, made from moisturizing oils like castor and coconut. It also contains amino acids and plant extracts, which work together to support the skin’s barrier and stimulate collagen production.
West Elm x William Wegman
West Elm has expanded its made-to-order upholstery options and teamed up with artist William Wegman and his Weimaraners to bring the new offerings to life. The resulting campaign is charming (we can’t resist two dogs on a recliner). Everything from the shoot is available to customize on-site, including the aforementioned recliner which — in the eye-catching mustard shade — is shipping in a little over ten weeks.
Crate & Kids x Domino
Domino has teamed up with Crate & Kids on a 90-piece collection that’s all about thoughtful, functional pieces. Items include puffy chairs, sculptural lamps, and furniture with soft, arched corners. This geometric rug would look nice in nurseries, playrooms, and grown-up rooms alike.
Parade Fruit Salad Collection
Parade, which frequently appears on the must-have lists of stylish, cool people, recently released its Fruit Salad collection. It features its classic, meshy styles in fruit-colored, patterned, and embroidered options. That includes Megababe founder Katie Sturino’s favorite boyshort underwear, which she says never rolls down and stays put without crossing into control-top territory. The brand has added two new colors to the boyshort lineup, including this fun, multicolored pair called Tutti Frutti.
Otherland Homestead Collection
Otherland’s latest fall collection is inspired by the homestead, drawing inspiration from quiet moments at home and the scents you might find there. This comes through in the notes. Berkshire’s Granola, for example, has notes of pumpkin seed, granola, and oat milk. Another candle, Tomato Terrazzo, smells like tomatoes, celery salt, and leafy vines. Every candle is available to purchase individually, but if you’re an Otherland obsessive (or want to get an early start on gifting), you can pick up the entire collection and save 20 percent on the set.
