For this week’s “Don’t DillyDally,” we’ve uncovered new launches from lots of Strategist favorites including Demi Moore’s foray into swimwear, Dame’s first libido-boosting gummy, and a Vans collection inspired by season four of Stranger Things.
Brooklinen Checkerboard Collection
Strat-favorite Brooklinen is adding more fresh designs to its lineup including this new checkerboard towel and robe collection. The 100 percent Turkish cotton towels are available in three summery colorways: pop pink, mango, and mint. If you want a complete linen refresh, there are mix-and-match bundles too.
Our Place Traditionware
Our Place released a handcrafted tagine yesterday, building on its line of “Traditionware.” Made by artisans in Marrakesh, the tagine is specifically fit for the statusy Always Pan featuring a cone-shaped glazed-clay lid that allows condensation to drip down the sides back into the dish. Each order comes with a jar of ras el hanout spices from Brooklyn-based New York Shuk and a mini tagine that can be used to house ras el hanout or other spices.
Jono Pandolfi x Chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten
Jono Pandolfi, a maker of stylish dinnerware for restaurateurs and discerning home cooks, teamed up with chef Jean-Georges Vongerichten on a serving set as a part of their limited-edition monthly drops. It’s named after the Michelin chef’s artisanal plant-based eatery, which is part of Vongerichten’s Tin Building project, opening later this month.
Sexpert-recommended vibrator company Dame has expanded its offerings to include libido-inducing gummies. It’s formulated with a cocktail of adaptogens and ingredients such as ashwagandha, L-theanine, Mucuna, and shatavari, meant to lower stress levels and boost mood and desire levels.
Glow Recipe x Isle of Paradise
In time for beach vacations, two Strat-approved beauty brands have teamed up in a limited-edition sun-kissed kit. The Paradise kit comes with Glow Recipe’s Watermelon Glow Pink Juice Moisturizer, favored by Strat beauty columnist and aesthetician Rio Viera-Newton for being soothing and hydrating, and Isle of Paradise’s self-tanning drops that come recommended by an expert facialist.
Herschel Supply Co. x The Simpsons
Herschel’s newest collab with The Simpsons includes bags, hats, and accessories emblazoned with characters from the iconic cartoon show. Pieces have started to sell out, but we found this bucket hat with a more subtle homage to the show that is still available (for now).
Dickies x Vincent Alvarez
On-trend workwear brand Dickies partnered with skate-team member Vincent Alvarez, celebrating his tenth anniversary with the team. The nine-piece capsule inspired by Alvarez’s Aztec roots and time in L.A. includes tees, button-downs, pants, shorts, hats, and hoodies.
Demi Moore x Andie Swim
Demi Moore tapped Andie Swim, the maker of our favorite one-piece bathing suits, for her first line of swimwear. Offerings include bikini separates and one-piece suits made with either an Italian compressive-nylon-and-spandex blend or crochet fabric sourced from France.
Casetify x Sailor Moon
Last Thursday, Casetify and ’90s anime Sailor Moon partnered up for a collection of nostalgic phone cases, phone accessories, and more. Choose from cases that feature its cast of characters such as Sailor Mars, Sailor Jupiter, or Sailor Moon herself or snag an AirPods case in the shape of the black cat Luna.
Vans x Stranger Things
If you binged Stranger Things last weekend and are craving more, Vans has launched a collection of sneakers, apparel, and backpacks inspired by the Netflix series. Designs include a Demogorgon silhouette on T-shirts, Hellfire Club iconography, and a fiery Stranger Things logo.
