For this week’s “Don’t DillyDally,” we’ve uncovered new launches from lots of Strategist favorites including Nécessaire’s first sunscreen, Girlfriend Collective’s line of tennis clothing, and candles that smell like Yankee Stadium.
Last year, Caraway Home released their nonstick ceramic cookware set in a colorway exclusive to Crate & Barrel. They’ve done it again, this time with the brand’s baking essentials in cream, silt-green, and sapphire colorways. Sets come with two baking sheets, two round pans, a gold cooling rack, a muffin tin, a rectangular pan, a square pan, a loaf pan, and two organizers.
Homesick sells affordable, giftable candles inspired by the scents of locations, celebrations, and even astrological signs. As Strat writer Tembe Denton-Hurst previously reported, the “Home Office” candle is vetted by candle expert and influencer Kudzi Chikumbu. In an unexpected collaboration, the brand teamed up with MLB. Included in the collection is a Yankee Stadium Candle with milkshake and churro top notes, cement and brown-sugar mid notes, and leather-mitt and red-clay base notes.
Nécessaire, which makes Strat beauty columnist Rio Viera Newton’s eczema-friendly body wash and our favorite natural body lotion for dry skin, has expanded into sun care. The brand is known for its elegant-yet-simple formulas — exactly what you might want from a mineral sunscreen (they’re often thick and whitening.) Nécessaire’s combines zinc oxide with squalene, glycerine, and niacinamide.
Starface face mask
In more beauty news, Starface, known for their cute-yet-effective pimple patches, released its first face mask. As its name suggests, the star ingredient is sulfur, which treats active breakouts and blackheads and prevents new ones from forming. It’s also formulated with oil-absorbing kaolin clay, antioxidant-rich blueberry extract, and hydrating glycerin.
Eadem cleansing balm
Buzzy skin-care line Eadem makes a “heavenly” moisturizer Strategist writer Ambar Pardilla likes for her oily skin. This week, the brand introduced a hydrating cleansing balm meant to melt away all makeup, dirt, and sweat without stripping or irritation. It’s made with a cocktail of soothing and anti-inflammatory ingredients like kalahari melon, allantoin, and licorice root.
Size-inclusive athleisure brand Girlfriend Collective released a new collection of retro-inspired tennis tops, skorts, shorts, dresses, and accessories. Some pieces are best sellers reimagined with a piping detail, like their Paloma Racerback Bra and Dylan Tank Bra. There are also brand-new designs, including a pleated skort and flattering front-zip exercise dress. Like the rest of their line, pieces are made of either entirely or mostly recycled materials.
Columbia x MadHappy
Columbia, makers of cool-person-approved raincoats and running gear, and L.A.-based clothing company MadHappy partnered on a line of outdoor clothing and accessories. The jackets, fleeces, shorts, bags, and more come in soothing pastel colors, and some feature illustrations of mountains and riverbeds.
Today, Warby Parker released a limited-edition collection of unisex glasses and sunglasses with apparel brand Noah. Frames come in tortoiseshell and forest-green colorways, including this classic cat’s-eye option. A portion of the profits go to Behind the Book, a nonprofit organization that delivers literacy programs to underserved New York City students.
Herschel released its latest collab of exclusive, limited-edition insulated bags and accessories in partnership with design company Futura Laboratories and Coca-Cola. If you’re still on the hunt for this summer’s cooler bag, this one conveniently fits 12 cans, is made of recycled material and a leakproof liner, and features an exclusive print of Coke cans and Futura Laboratories lanyards.
