For this week’s Don’t Dillydally, we’ve surfaced a range of things we’re sure will sell out, including a spicy snack partnership, sweets-inspired rugs from Cold Picnic, and A$AP Rocky’s new whisky.
Danish cool-girl brand Ganni and Juicy Couture teamed up in a 13-piece collection that launched yesterday. Leaning heavily into the Y2K aesthetic, the capsule includes bedazzled snapback caps and logo-splashed tops and leggings. Juicy Couture’s iconic velour tracksuit is featured in black, blue, and tan but recast in certified organic and pre-consumer recycled cotton. While many of the pieces are already low in stock in most colors and sizes and sold out in some, this cheeky crew-neck tee that reads “Have a juicy day!” is still available in most sizes for now.
Universal Standard, which is behind some of our favorite jeans and bodysuits, makes its foray into intimates. The brand, known for its size inclusivity, is making underwear serving sizes 00 to 40. The collection is made from sustainable anti-microbial, moisture-wicking jersey fabric that’s breathable and doesn’t dig in for maximum comfort. All priced at $18, the pieces come in mid- and high-rise, three silhouettes, and neutral shades.
Fishwife and Fly by Jing have partnered up, bringing us sustainably sourced tinned fish with added heat. Each tin features salmon smoked in small batches that’s brined in some of the Strat’s favorite Sichuan-chili crisps. These are sold in packs of three and in limited quantities, so be sure to grab them while they’re still available.
From the makers of the famous boob bath mat and status-y rugs comes this sweets-inspired line with names such as Sherbet, Taro, and Battenberg (as in the cake). The collection is dedicated to the founders’ immigrant parents and the Taiwanese and English desesrts they grew up on with each piece hand-tufted with bamboo-silk yarn. We’re partial to the Mochi rug, which features a mix of mint, cream, watermelon, and black against a grasshopper-green background.
Multi-hyphenate artist A$AP Rocky is joining the ranks of celebrities with alcohol (and alcohol-infused) companies. Launched last Thursday, Mercer + Prince is a blended Canadian whiskey made in partnership with Global Brand Equities and E. & J. Gallo. Its name comes from the artist’s favorite cross streets in NYC, where Rocky was born, and the bottle has added functionality with two removable acrylic cups built into the design. Tasting notes include fruit aromas, vanilla, caramel, and hints of baked apple and cinnamon from the Japanese mizunara-oak influence.
From the brand that makes some of our favorite marathon-running clothes comes its debut collection of footwear. Last Friday, Lululemon launched what it claims to be the first sneaker designed for women’s feet (apparently, sneakers are designed for men and then just sized down for women). The running shoes, which come in six different colorways, are already starting to sell out in some sizes, so we suggest you don’t dillydally.
This launched a couple of weeks ago, but it’s weird enough that we thought it was worth mentioning. Lacoste and Minecraft partnered to bring a capsule collection that’s said to be halfway between the physical and digital world. The 60-piece physical line ranges from bike shorts and sweatpants to polos and tees featuring a pixelated version of Lacoste’s classic crocodile logo. And for younger fans of Minecraft, there are children’s clothes including dresses, hoodies, and this set of organic-cotton pajamas. As for the digital side, Minecraft released Croco Island, a downloadable world where players can experience a Lacoste theme park with mini-games.
