For this week’s Don’t Dillydally we’ve uncovered lots of finds that have the potential to be staples in your daily routine, like a pair of ultrasoft leggings from Madewell’s new loungewear collection, a Prada sandwich tin, and a cookware set from Greenspan and Bobby Flay.
Vans x Where’s Waldo
For its latest collaboration, Vans has teamed up with Where’s Waldo on a nostalgia-inducing, puzzle-inspired, stripe-filled collection for both adults and kids. We’re particularly charmed by this beach puzzle ringspun cotton T-shirt, which is reminiscent of the OG Waldo puzzle but has a distinctive Vans flair and pays homage to the brand’s Southern California roots.
Prada x Black and Blum
For the sustainably (and fashion) minded, makers of high-quality, reusable lunch boxes, water bottles, and thermoses Black and Blum has teamed up with Prada on a lunchtime collection that includes a co-branded sandwich box (complete with a Prada-logoed silicone strap), a lunch bowl, and Prada-branded cutlery. Made from durable materials, the set is meant to last you a long (long) time, which might help to justify the pricier-than-typical Tupperware price tag.
Coach x Disney x Keith Haring
A three-part collab: Coach has partnered with Disney and the Keith Haring Studio to celebrate the artist’s subversive depictions of Mickey Mouse. In classic KH fashion, there’s lots to look at, with bags, puffers, scarves, and wallets covered in vintage-looking Mickey Mouse motifs. We’re fans of this tote, which features two delightfully distorted Mickeys. It’s made from durable canvas and is big enough to fit a 15-inch laptop with room left over for the rest of your things.
Madewell recently released a new loungewear collection (cheekily named Make Weekends Longer) that’s made from luxe-feeling sustainable fabrics and comfy enough to wear all day long. Of all the pieces in the collection we’re most excited about the leggings, which have four-way stretch, are completely opaque, and come in three go-with-everything shades.
In case you’re in the market for real pants, Everlane just debuted their Way-High Jean, which, as the name suggests, are ultra-high-waisted. With a 12-inch rise, the jeans sit right at your true waist and taper off right around the ankle. Made from 98 percent cotton and 2 percent elastane, the jeans have just a little bit of stretch and come in four classic hues.
GreenPan recently released their Premiere collection, created with Bobby Flay. All the pans are made with a diamond, nonstick ceramic coating and promise an even cook on all stovetops, along with heat resistance up to 600 degrees. You can purchase pans individually, or the entire 11-piece set will run you a cool $500.
Timex x Pacman
Two classic brands — Pac-Man and Timex — have collaborated on a watch to celebrate Pac-Man’s 40th anniversary. It has all the trappings of a classic Timex T80, like an alarm, stopwatch, and analog display, but does unique things — like play the Pac-Man melo and a mini Pac-Man game on its face.
Halsey is the latest celebrity to release a makeup collection. The line, inspired by the singer’s love for self-expression, is vegan and cruelty-free, with everything from matte lip colors to dewy, glowy highlighters. We’re excited about the eye paints, which come in deep, saturated shades and dry down matte and smudge-free. Everything on the site is currently available for preorder with shipping starting on January 25.
Native x Jungalow
Jungalow and clean body-care brand Native have teamed up to create a limited-edition collection made up of tropical, citrusy scents like tangerine and citrus blossom, paradise flower and amber, and sandalwood and fig. In addition to custom scents there’s also custom packaging design, giving the classic Native branding a Jungalow-style makeover.
