For this week’s Don’t DillyDally, we’ve surfaced a range of items we’re sure will sell out, including a new recycled cashmere collection from Reformation, cool kids’ tees from Noah and Sea Monsters, and the much-awaited return of Chloë Sevigny’s collaboration with Warby Parker.
Made In x Nancy Silverton
Kitchenware brand Made In has collaborated with more than a few award-winning chefs, including Tom Colicchio, Sean Brock, and Jamilka Borges. This handsome limited-edition bread knife is the newest addition to its collection with legendary chef Nancy Silverton. The knife features a serrated blade that’s made from a single piece of steel and runs from the tip all the way through the bone-colored Micarta handle. It’s a detail that gives the tool balance and lasting power, so you can slice through crusty loaves without crushing them for years to come.
Jungmaven x SeaVees
Jungmaven, hands down the coolest maker of hemp clothing on the planet, has teamed up with sneaker brand SeaVees to reimagine SeaVees’ best-selling styles in sustainably grown hemp. These summery tie-dye slip-ons, which come in men’s and women’s sizes, are the standouts of the collection.
Chloë Sevigny x Warby Parker
This is the second installment of actor, director, and style icon Chloe Sevigny’s collaboration with Warby Parker. First launched in 2019, the Tate glasses are a sturdy yet elegant combination of wire rim and crystal acetate, so flattering they quickly became at least two Strategist staffers’ go-to frames. Now, the glasses are back in two new colors: silver and gold.
Noah x Sea Monsters
This Noah collaboration with seaweed-snack brand Sea Monsters is a perfect example of why the menswear brand is so beloved — it’s not too serious, but still worth collecting. The graphic tees feature artwork by Kevin Lyons and come in a range of kids’ sizes (plus a few adult sizes too) because, well, Sea Monsters snacks are primarily for kids.
Food52 just launched its very own line of pantry staples including everything from crunchy peanut butter to wood-aged sweet vinegar. The project took over 18 months of research and development led by the former head of grocery for Eataly. We’re particularly curious about this duo of olive oils.
Athena Calderone x Crate & Barrel
Author and designer Athena Calderone’s collection for Crate & Barrel is full of swoon-worthy sofas, textural pillows, and earthy coffee tables and accessories. There is even a luxurious throw pillow that looks like a fuzzy meatball made out of shearling (unfortunately, it’s already sold out online). This dining chair comes in green velvet or natural-colored bouclé.
Ruggable x Anna Sui
Machine-washable-rug brand Ruggable and designer Anna Sui have teamed up to create a line of boldly patterned rugs and doormats featuring ’60s-inspired flowers and rich saturated colors.
Reformation 90/10 cashmere collection
Producing virgin cashmere takes a heavy toll on the environment. So Reformation is working to lower its carbon footprint with a new line of cashmere sweaters, tops, and dresses made from 90 percent recycled cashmere. This oversize turtleneck looks incredibly cozy and comes in three colors.
Herman Miller x Hay
Herman Miller and Hay just released a collection revisiting eight iconic Eames designs in new colors like powder pink, terra cotta, and mint green (it actually looks more like a dark teal). The new line includes classic plastic-shell chairs, molded plywood chairs, a bistro table, and this multicolored kindercore coat rack.
Olive & June Holiday Calendars
Beauty advent calendars sell out crazy fast, especially when they’re from beloved brands like Olive & June. Each of O&J’s manicure-focused advent calendars costs about half the value of what’s inside, including mini nail polish bottles, cuticle cream, nail stickers, and press-on nails.
Bodega x On
Sneakers by the Swiss running brand On have established a loyal fandom that includes tech bros, sneaker heads, and older folks with chronically sore feet. The shoes’ combined comfort, craftsmanship, and gorp-adjacent aesthetic make them an easy pick for fashion people and regular people too. This limited-edition aubergine-colored Cloudnova Z5 was made exclusively for Bodega and definitely won’t last long.
The Dodo pet products
Our friends at The Dodo launched an adorable and very useful line of pet products last week. The line includes toys, leashes, clothing, and even grooming products. But we’re partial to this surprisingly nice-looking chew toy.
The Strategist is designed to surface the most useful, expert recommendations for things to buy across the vast e-commerce landscape.
