For this week’s Don’t DillyDally, we’ve surfaced a range of things we’re sure will sell out — including Twister-inspired sweats from Champion, an L.L.Bean x Todd Snyder collection inspired by a 1930s hunting jacket, and a new Babar x Rowing Blazers drop.
Hasbro x Champion
Champion has teamed up with Hasbro on a collection of loungewear. The collection is inspired by four classic board games — Twister, Candy Land, Monopoly, and Scrabble. This Twister-inspired hoodie is particularly fun (and doesn’t feel cheesy), thanks to well-placed kindercore polka dots and a unique take on the Champion logo.
Clarks x Sweet Chick
Clarks has partnered with popular Brooklyn chicken-and-waffle spot Sweet Chick on a capsule collection cheekily called Wafflebee. The drop riffs on Clarks’ classic Wallabee silhouette, adding embossed waffle texture to the usually smooth uppers. Unsurprisingly, they’re going quickly, so if you’re thinking about grabbing a pair, don’t dillydally.
L.L.Bean x Todd Snyder
Todd Snyder has released the latest installment of its ongoing collaboration with L.L.Bean — bringing the signature plaid pattern to classic items. This collection is inspired by the fabric of a 1937 Maine Hunting Coat, a red heritage plaid from the L.L.Bean archives. That includes the Strat-favorite Boat and Tote, which has been remade with Pendleton wool and a vintage L.L.Bean logo.
Rowing Blazers x Babar
Rowing Blazers is back with another Babar drop. And this time, the theme is après-ski chic. Hats, sweaters, and fleeces abound, all of which come in a snowy red, white, and blue color scheme. This fleece from the collection depicts the well-dressed elephant skiing down a hill. One thing to note: It’s currently available for preorder and shipping in January 2022.
Golf le Fleur
Rapper Tyler the Creator now has a beauty brand, too. The line, called Golf le Fleur, has two products — a pretty-looking perfume called French Waltz that smells like jasmine, mandarin, magnolia, and sandalwood, and a set of nail polishes. The latter is sold out, but the perfume (which is available in three sizes) is still in stock.
Breda x Subliming
Watchmaker Breda released a limited-edition colorway of its Play watch — which watch obsessive and Dimepiece founder Brynn Wallner called “a more elevated Swatch.” The watch was created in collaboration with graphic designer and art director Tessa Forrest (the brain behind the Instagram account @subliming.jpg). It features a clear band and lucite forest-green watch face, with hands that say “Timing Is Everything.” It’s also made from recycled, water-resistant materials.
Uniqlo x JW Anderson Collection
Uniqlo announced the latest installment of its ongoing collaboration with JW Anderson a few weeks ago, and now we’re a day away from being able to buy it online (it’s currently available in select stores). While we normally wouldn’t write about a collection until it was shoppable, we suspect this one will go as quickly as years before. This time around, the collection is made up of lounge-y pieces that are nice-looking enough to wear outside. Think matching knits, slouchy cardigans, and fleece-lined pullovers. There’s also a pair of flannel pajamas that feel particularly festive for this time of year.
Fenty Killawatt Liquid Highlighter
Fenty’s cult-favorite Killawatt highlighter is now available in liquid form. It uses superfine pigments to create shine, offering a buildable glow that can be subtle or blinding, depending on what you’re looking for. It’s currently available in six shades, including an iteration of the popular Hu$tla Baby, which is cheekily named Hu$tla Baby 2.0.
