For this week’s Don’t Dillydally, we’ve surfaced a range of summer-ready things we’re sure will sell out, including Girlfriend Collective’s line of breezy styles, a reimagined best-selling sunscreen bottle, and a beach-themed Uniqlo and Disney collab.
Two Strat favorites — West Elm and Kule — have teamed up on a cheery 13-piece collaboration, out today. The collection includes delightful items for the bathroom, living room, and more featuring red, white, and navy stripes, cute phrases, and yellow smiley faces in true Kule fashion.
On the neutral end of the spectrum, H&M launched a new glamping-inspired patio collection. The lineup consists of affordable vases, throw blankets, cushion covers, jute rugs, and more — all in earthy tones and textures. Some of the pieces are already out of stock, but there are still plenty available, like this handsome 100 percent wood planter.
Mejuri, our favorite jewelry brand for everyday pieces, released its inaugural sculptural jewelry vessels in partnership with vintage-furniture and art collector Maggie Holladay of Claude Home. The arch vessel is long and narrow, designed to house smaller pieces like rings. Everything’s handmade in Mexico, meaning no two are alike.
Chamberlain Coffee, from YouTube star Emma Chamberlain, surprisingly makes some of the best instant coffee, according to former Strategist writer Chloe Anello. And last week, the brand expanded its offerings in a collab with beverage company Swoon. The limited-edition drink mixes Chamberlain Coffee’s matcha with Swoon’s sugar-free lemonade. Each can contains 70 milligrams of caffeine and is sweetened with monk fruit.
Size-inclusive athleisure brand Girlfriend Collective has expanded its inventory with summer-ready shorts, skorts, jumpsuits, and joggers. Each style in the five-piece Stretch Wovens collection comes in three colors and is made from a water-resistant blend of recycled polyester and spandex. We especially like the new sleeveless romper. It has an adjustable cinch waist, covered functional button placket, and three convenient pockets.
Ivy Park and Adidas have added what looks like a Stan Smith–Samba mash-up to the lineup. The new “Super Sleek” adds a canvas and leather upper, three hook-and-loop straps, and a gum rubber outsole to the classic style. Some sizes are already sold out, so if yours is in stock, don’t dillydally.
We’re big fans of Uniqlo and the brand’s collaborations. Its latest, with Los Angeles–based artist Steven Harrington and Disney, is an eight-piece beach-themed capsule. This retro-looking T-shirt features an artist Mickey in ’80s pastel shorts and sunglasses and is available in adult and kids’ unisex sizes.
Supergoop x Minions
Strat- and dermatologist-approved Supergoop! and Illumination’s Minions: The Rise of Gru teamed up for a limited-edition bottle of the brand’s best-selling sunscreen, which dropped today. The cute minion design is meant for kids, but our beauty columnist Rio Viera Newton is a fan of the formula itself. She likes that the non-greasy face and body sunscreen is “fast-absorbing as well as sweat- and water-resistant.”
Barbie’s Tribute Collection now includes a collectible Laverne Cox doll, marking the first time Mattel has modeled the iconic doll after a transgender woman. Made in collaboration with the Emmy-nominated actress and activist, the Barbie comes with three red-carpet-ready looks: a holographic bodysuit, a red corset, and a full-length oxblood-red tulle dress.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape. Some of our latest conquests include the best acne treatments, rolling luggage, pillows for side sleepers, natural anxiety remedies, and bath towels. We update links when possible, but note that deals can expire and all prices are subject to change.
