11 Things That’ll Almost Definitely Sell Out: From Aesop to AYR

For this week’s “Don’t DillyDally,” we’ve surfaced a range of things we’re sure will sell out — from cheeky and whimsical Great British Bake Off accessories by Cath Kidston to a (perhaps) unlikely collaboration between Sky High Farm and Balenciaga to a new fragrance from Aesop inspired by the myth of Narcissus.

Great British Bake Off x Cath Kidston

For the Star Baker in your life (or Great British Bake Off obsessive) comes this collection from British home-goods brand Cath Kidston. There are lots of options, ranging from the very obvious (a Star Baker apron) to the subtle (a reversible quilted placemat with a whimsical design on one side and the words soggy bottom on the other). This hand-painted tea towel is both affordable and cute and features the iconic handshake over a showstopping cake.

Beverly Nguyen x Material

Also on the cooking front, Material Kitchen — maker of the best balanced chef’s knife — has released a new colorway for its Japanese-style knives, created in collaboration with stylist and Beverly’s founder Beverly Nguyen. Sage, the new shade, is a calming green that adds a pop of color to the brand’s previously neutral range. If you need to refresh your knife drawer, consider this kit, which includes our favorite eight-inch knife, a petite paring knife, and a serrated bread knife with a smaller-than-average six-inch blade.

Sky High Farm x Balenciaga

Sky High Farm, a nonprofit organization that also has a fashion brand called Sky High Farm Workwear, has collaborated with Balenciaga on a limited-edition collection of pieces. Sky High has given archival Balenciaga silhouettes a farm-friendly makeover. That includes this denim jacket with a glam shot of an actual Sky High Farm lamb. One hundred percent of the profits go back to the farm, which works to create food security in underserved communities and increase access to local fresh produce.

AYR Menswear

AYR, which makes one of our favorite button-downs under $200, has ventured into menswear. Its collection includes everything one may need to build a solid wardrobe for fall, such as straight-leg jeans, a vintage-looking twill bomber, a down puffer vest, cargo pants, and a crewneck sweater. This cozy option comes in two colors — white and navy — and is made from an organic-cotton blend with an ultrasoft feel.

Hello Kitty x Baggu

Longtime collaborators Baggu and Hello Kitty have released a new Baggu featuring the iconic cat and her friends. The bag marries a trendy checked pattern with images of famous characters from the Hello Kitty universe, like Badtz-Maru, Chococat, and Pompompurin. It comes in both standard and baby sizes.
