This week’s dive into the world of launches and collaborations that we’re pretty sure will sell out includes sweet-smelling deodorants from Native and Baked by Melissa, a feather-filled wedding collection from Sleeper, and teas inspired by the new Disney+ Star Wars series The Book of Boba Fett.
Philips One by Sonicare x Susan Alexandra
2022 is kicking off as the year of unlikely collaborations. First up: Philips One by Sonicare (yes, the toothbrush brand) and accessories designer Susan Alexandra. The two have teamed up on a collection of toiletry and tote bags, all of which are hand-jeweled in Susan Alexandra’s signature style. This cheekily named Travelina pouchette from the collection comes with a Susan Alexandra sticker sheet and is sized to fit the Philips One by Sonicare power toothbrush.
Dame — which makes sexpert-recommended vibrators — has released its most powerful vibrator yet. The Com is a take on the classic wand-style vibrator, upgraded to have a more flexible, curved silhouette; Dame says the design makes for a more comfortable experience. It’s currently available in two colors, periwinkle and blush pink.
Boy Smells Hinoki Fantôme Cologne de Parfum
Diptyque Unleash the Rose Collection
Also on the scent front: Diptyque is expanding its Eau Rose collection with an eau de parfum and three new candles. The perfume contains unique notes like artichoke, chamomile, and nitchi and comes in limited-edition floral packaging.
Baked by Melissa x Native
Body-care brand Native has teamed up with tiny cupcake makers Baked by Melissa on a sweet-smelling collection of body washes and deodorants. Native’s cult-favorite deodorant — which we’ve written about many times before — now comes in four limited-edition scents: tie-dye vanilla, peach,-ginger lemonade, and mint cookie.
Sleeper — which makes puffy-sleeved dresses and flirty feathered pajamas — has officially expanded into wedding wear (though some people have already been adapting the brand’s all-white ensembles for such purposes). The collection includes a ruffled mesh cape, satin ballet flats, a feathered slip dress, and a shimmery, tailored lurex suit. Everything is currently available for preorder and expected to ship in a week or two.
Goodhood x Dr Martens
Retailer Goodhood has teamed up with Dr. Martens to offer a new take on the classic six-eye 101 UB boot. Constructed from vintage smooth leather, the boot features screen-printed graphics and contrasting white thread. Sizes are already selling quickly (the men’s are nearly gone), so if you’re thinking of grabbing them, don’t dillydally.
Avec Drinks x Williams Sonoma
Avec makes “better-for-you” low-sugar cocktail mixers that contain real fruit juice and zero preservatives. The brand has teamed up with Williams-Sonoma on a line of co-branded mixers. There are currently three flavors: yuzu lime, grapefruit pomelo, and ginger pineapple, which is apparently similar to ginger beer, just lighter.
Star Wars: The Book of Boba Fett x The Republic of Tea
To further cement your Star Wars obsession, here’s a two-tin gift set of The Book of Boba Fett teas, a tie-in with the new TV show on Disney+. The two flavors — black tea and green tea — are inspired by the characters Fennec Shand and Boba Fett, respectively.
The Home Edit x Walmart
Professional organizers Clea Shearer and Joanna Teplin of the Home Edit (of Instagram and Netflix fame) have brought their tidying talents to Walmart. The duo have released a collection of plastic bins meant to hold everything from pantry snacks to beauty products to blocks. If overhauling your kitchen is on your list of New Year’s to-do’s, consider this five-piece set, which includes two large bins, two inserts, and a three-tier riser.
