For this week’s Don’t DillyDally, we’ve surfaced a range of things we’re sure will sell out, including a wineglass set designed based on region from Lenox, a silicone ear to hold your earrings from Studs, and bright-colored pillows from Block Shop and Paboy Bojang.
Victoria James x Lenox
Wine wunderkind (and occasional Strategist expert) Victoria James has teamed up with heritage tableware-maker Lenox on a collection of wineglasses. Typically, wineglasses are designed based on the type of wine. There’s one for red, another for white, and yet another for sparkling. But Lenox and James have taken another approach entirely. Their glass shapes are based on region, which apparently has the biggest impact on a wine’s flavor profile. There are two glasses available: warm and cool, which correspond with the climate. The main difference between the two is the bowl size, with warm climates having a wider bowl to help the wine expand and breathe, and cool using a narrow bowl to focus the flavor. If you don’t know whether your wine is cool or warm, just ask your local wine shop — they’ll be able to tell you. The glasses come in sets of two or four, and you can purchase them as a single region or mixed-region set.
Miaou x Urban Outfitters
When we asked a group of stylish women about the best pants to wear last September, a few name-checked Miaou, the Y2K-inspired brand that churns out pieces often spotted on celebrities like Alexa Demie, Julia Fox, and Bella Hadid. Now, it’s partnered with Urban Outfitters on a capsule collection, applying graphic prints to some of its classic silhouettes. Everything — from the mesh bustier to the printed low-rise pants — is made from recycled materials. This minidress from the drop would be a perfect outfit for the first day at Euphoria High.
Clueless x Zappos
Crocs is also leaning into nostalgia with its latest collaboration. The footwear brand has teamed up with Clueless on a capsule collection that brings the movie’s signature aesthetics like plaid, cheetah print, and pastel to the classic clog shape. Styles are selling quickly — so if you’re thinking of adding these to your collection, don’t dillydally.
Studs Earscape Organizer
Gone are the days when all of your earrings have to live in a dainty dish thanks to this earscape organizer from Studs. The disembodied ear — which could be considered cool or creepy, depending on how you look at it — comes in four bright shades: neon green, highlighter yellow, traffic-cone orange, and purple. It’s both storage space and styling tool — offering up a visual of how an array of hoops and studs might look clustered together on an ear.
Paboy Bojang x Block Shop
Back in 2020, Paboy Bojang launched his ruffly pillows on Instagram, and they quickly became a favorite of the “slightly kitschy yet tasteful” set. His cotton creations caught the eye of Vogue early last year, with the magazine dubbing his pillows “the most joyful pillows on Instagram.” Now, he’s collaborating with Block Shop, marking the brand’s first collaboration since launch. The collection is a marriage of the two brands’ aesthetics. There’s lines and circles juxtaposed against bright colors and contrasting trim, and they are pretty joyful to look at. All of the pillows are hand-stitched in Italy and come with a high-quality down insert.
Mickey and Friends x Stoney Clover
Stoney Clover is back with another collaboration, this time with Mickey and Friends. We previously covered the brand’s collaboration with American Girl, which quickly sold out. This collaboration seems to be moving at a similar clip, with some of the pouches already out of stock. Luckily, there’s still plenty left to choose from — like this large, zip-top cosmetic pouch that features Mickey and all of his friends. This pouch style in particular is a favorite of Nicky Hilton, who says it makes a great, customizable gift. There is an array of patch styles to choose from, including Mickey-style letters and character icons.
Disney’s Turning Red x Fly by Jing
Fly by Jing and Disney have collaborated on a limited-edition lunch box to celebrate Disney’s newest film, Turning Red. The tin lunch box comes with three mini-size Fly by Jing spices, including the Strat-favorite Sichuan Chili Crisp, which we’ve said is a little funkier and spicier than other crisps we’ve tried. It also comes with Zhong Sauce and Mala Spice Mix, along with a Turning Red–themed sticker sheet for customization.
Uniqlo Airism 3-D Mask
Uniqlo’s Airism mask is a favorite amongst Strategist staffers because of its lightweight fabric and self-deodorizing technology. The only drawbacks were that it didn’t have a nose strip or adjustable ear loops, which caused it to move a bit while talking. Its newest launch — the Airism 3-D mask — fixes all that. The new 3-D design sits away from the nose and mouth to make breathing and talking easier, and it features adjustable ear straps so it can be sized to properly fit. It comes in four sizes — S through XL — and two shades: pink and navy blue.
Byredo x Bentgablenits
Beloved perfume-and-candle brand Byredo has collaborated with Bentgablenits, an upcycling design collective that got its start transforming vintage Nike tees. The two have come together on a limited-edition box that includes a Bibliotheque perfume and candle that come in silk velvet-lined pouches and a dead-stock T-shirt that’s unique to each box. Currently, they’re available via preorder and expected to ship in about three weeks.
Fenty Beauty Icon Lipstick
Fenty Beauty’s latest release looks promising: a semi-matte lipstick that’s high-pigment with a lightweight feel. Fenty has a reputation of making good lip products — so we suspect that this one will be similarly beloved. The initial lineup is a mix of wearable reds and subtle neutrals that could work for everyday looks and special occasions both. Each color is sold separately from the tube, which is an additional purchase — something to keep in mind when adding to cart.
Lilly Pulitzer x PB Teen
There have been murmurings of Lilly Pulitzer’s resurgence for a while now, particularly among Gen-Zers, who can’t resist the siren call of an early-aughts brand. Its latest collaboration with Pottery Barn Teen speaks directly to its young fan base (and their mothers, for whom Lilly was never “uncool”). There are patterned duvets, sheet sets, pillows, and even a sun tent, all of which feature Lilly Pulitzer’s bright, coastal motifs. This floral sheet set from the collection is rather nice-looking, and is made of OEKO-TEX-certified organic cotton.
