In this week’s roundup of hot new stuff to buy before it’s gone, Otherland’s moody holiday candle set, a very weather-appropriate sweater from Everlane, Drew Barrymore’s newest home-décor drop, and Billie Eilish x Urban Outfitters merch.
Arlo Skye x Dusen Dusen rolling carry-on suitcase
Direct-to-consumer luggage brand Arlo Skye (founded by alums of Tumi and Louis Vuitton) just announced its limited-edition collaboration with Brooklyn-based designer Ellen Van Dusen. The collection includes three sizes: carry-on max, carry-on with front pocket, and check-in. All of them feature Dusen Dusen’s signature poppy print lining plus leather luggage tag, and removable laundry and shoe bags. Both carry-ons come with removable phone chargers.
LEGO® Wooden Minifigure
Inspired by the first toys made by Lego creator Ole Kirk Christiansen, this wooden Lego “Minifigure” is actually five times the size of regular Legos. Each wooden Lego figure comes with a collectible book illustrating the company’s history and instructions on how to create a handful of different setups using the included Lego bricks. Because it’s made of an unfinished blonde wood, this li’l guy will fit right in with your Scandinavian vintage toys. Or as Lego encourages, you can customize the blank figure to show your creativity.
Byredo Tulipmania Hand Wash
Outdoor Voices The Exercise Dress in Leopard
We’re already fans of this Outdoor Voices dress with built-in bike shorts and even more so now that it comes in leopard print. This, like most O.V. drops, will sell out crazy fast.
Drew Barrymore Flower Home Grecian Blue Retro Table Light
Drew Barrymore Flower Home Incandescent Orange Ombre Glass Drinkware Set
Everything in the Flower Home collection is worth checking out but we’ve got a feeling about this set of party glasses, namely that we’d like to see them filled with eggnog ASAP.
Otherland Gilded Holiday Collection
Even when they’re not part of a limited-edition collection, Otherland candles are in high demand because they never smell too sweet or overly pungent, and they look exceedingly nice on a bookshelf or side table. This highly giftable set won’t last long.
David Yurman Cable Classic Candle with Cypress Scent
However, for those with more classic design tastes David Yurman’s Cypress Scent candle is the one to watch.
Everlane The Teddy Crew Neck Sweater
At this point, someone at the Strategist has tried on or owns every sweater Everlane has ever produced — except this one. Everlane calls this its coziest sweater ever and though we can’t officially confirm that claim, we have no reason to doubt it.
Billie Eilish UO Exclusive Allover Print Tee
Teen musician Billie Eilish has a singular alien-punk way of dressing — oversize shirts, shorts, and jackets plus neon-green everything — which has her close to 42 million fans enthralled. If you didn’t get a chance to score her tour merch, this exclusive collection with Urban Outfitters is your next best bet.
Billie Eilish UO Exclusive Hoodie Sweatshirt
A hoodie for fans who prefer neutrals.
Billie Eilish UO Exclusive Ski Mask
A Billie-emblazoned balaclava for winter fanning out.
Hidden Valley® Ranch Water Bottle
HVR does a yearly collection of holiday merch and this year’s, which dropped yesterday, does not disappoint, even if you’re not a fan of the dressing. This widemouthed stainless-steel water bottle that’ll make you look a bit like you’re chugging actual ranch is perhaps the best of the bunch.
