For this week’s Don’t Dillydally, we’ve surfaced a range of new things we’re sure will sell out — including a buzzed-about Marni and Carhartt collaboration, a layered candle with two different scent profiles, and a tinted balm inspired by L.A. juice culture.
Beauty brand Tower 28 is well versed in making delicious lip products — Strategist beauty writer Rio Viera-Newton says its glossy lip jellies provide a “your-lips-but-better wash of color with a juicy, high-impact glaze.” The brand recently launched JuiceBalm, a soft, cushiony tinted lip balm inspired by L.A. juice culture; the formula incorporates healthy ingredients derived from fresh produce such as mango-seed oil, vitamin E, and vitamin C. It comes in four shades: Mix (a sheer nude), Shake (a soft pink), Squeeze (a poppy coral), and Drink (a luscious berry).
Kiernan Shipka–approved tinned fish purveyor Fishwife recently expanded its piscine lineup with anchovies. The Cantabrian Sea is known for producing the world’s highest-quality anchovies, prized for their rich flavor and buttery texture; once harvested, the fish undergo a brining and curing process that lasts for at least six months before they’re packed into Fishwife tins, along with a splash of Spanish EVOO. They’re perfect for tossing onto a salad, adding to pasta, or simply enjoying right from the tin on toast.
After trying Cuup’s Plunge Bra, Strategist writer Latifah Miles says she’s “never felt sleeker under my clothes.” Just in time for Valentine’s Day, the stylist-beloved DTC lingerie brand has debuted two new hues — fiery Carmine and lively Fuchsia — in the brand’s best-selling silhouettes, including the Plunge, the Balconette, the Thong Modal, and more.
In this new collaboration, one of Joya’s elegant, editor-approved candles is complemented by visual artist Shantell Martin’s meditative line drawings. The distinctive duochrome candle allows for two different scents to be released: the black wax contains notes of lavender, geranium, and musk, while the uncolored wax contains notes of green tea, vanilla flower, and cedar leaf.
Six different experts have recommend Soom Foods’ tahini as the very best on the market, so we have no doubt that the brand’s newly released mini tahini bites are destined to become one of our go-to snacks. The trio pack includes one pouch of each mouthwatering flavor: double-chocolate brownie, cherry chocolate chip, and limited-edition pumpkin spice.
Buck Mason has been producing classic, high-quality basics for a decade now, including our pick for the best overall white T-shirts for women and men. The brand just added to its Surplus Rib collection with four new pieces: a slim-fit tee, a long-sleeved henley, a calf-length scoop dress, and this easygoing tank top.
Eastpak, a.k.a. “the new Fjällräven,” is throwing it back to the ’90s with a Simpsons-inspired collection. The playful patterns feature everything from line drawings of Homer to an all-over Where’s Waldo?–esque print to one of pop culture’s most iconic living rooms, and can be found on backpacks, shoulder bags, laptop sleeves, and more.
Marni x Carhartt
In another new collaboration, Carhartt’s utilitarian workwear takes on a quirky twist with Marni’s light-hearted colors, prints, and shapes. Fun all-over florals in shades of yellow and green impart a high-impact upgrade to classic chore jackets, button-down shirts, bucket hats, and platform sneakers.
Block Shop’s heirloom-quality Flock throw blankets have the power to instantly elevate any bed or sofa — and keep you cozy until spring. The blankets are now available in two new colorways, a sophisticated azure and an uplifting melon, and the brand has restocked the black-and-red version that sold out instantly when the throw was first released.
Caraway’s cookware has a well-deserved reputation for being low-maintenance and easy to clean, even earning a shout-out from actress Taraji P. Henson. The brand recently came out with steamers that promise to cook veggies and dumplings to perfection and can even double as colanders for draining pasta or washing produce. The steamers come in two sizes, large and small, so you can choose the one that nestles best into your Dutch oven or saucepan.
Chris Black–championed running brand District Vision has branched out with a cycling collection, including a custom titanium touring bicycle that’ll run you a cool $30,000. Thankfully, other items in the collection are a bit more attainable, including bib shorts, a short-sleeved jersey, a gilet, and this lightweight wind jacket that promises to be “easily removed, rolled up and stowed in a jersey pocket or frame bag.”
