The Coolest New Drops This Week, From Balenciaga Croc Totes to New LeBrons by Becca Blasdel

This week gifted us a dope collab from West Elm and Kule, Missoni’s new collection of Apple Watch straps, and ultra-fancy Diptyque cleaning products.

Happy Friday, TGIF, and Shabbat shalom! We did it—we made it through a four-day week, that even after a long weekend still felt excruciatingly slow. Don’t fret, we’re here to regale you with all the swaggiest, most exciting launches, drops, and collabs of the week, so you can stave off the existential dread until 5 p.m., when it’s socially acceptable to imbibe. We rounded out May with our editors’ favorite purchases of the month, the best places to buy natural wine online, and the natural deodorants that actually work (yes, even on you). Plus we reviewed a shockingly effective, budget-friendly suction vibrator and gave the skinny on the best Cameos to give for every occasion.  

Last week we served you some ludicrous launches on a golden platter, including hypebeast-approved collabs from Balenciaga x AdidasMarni x Uniqlo, and Lee x The Hundreds; a new chocolate-hazelnut spread from non-alcoholic aperitivo brand Ghia; and two supremely springy new colorways for Rimowa’s luxury polycarbonate suitcases that have a cult-like following. This week is an entirely different ball game; featuring out-of-the-park hits including Diptyque’s new line of cleaning products, a hot-pink tortilla press, and a brand new Dyson airwrap. So grab a giant crystal goblet and pour yourself a spritz—because it’s the freakin’ weekend, pals.

West Elm x Kule

For those unfamiliar with Kule—the maker of perennially chic casual pieces like this twist on the classic Breton striped tee—the brand makes, “happy clothes, made with love, [and] made to last” for the entire family, and just made its foray into homewares with a special collection designed in partnership with West Elm. Designer Nikki Kule started out designing luxe kid’s clothes (she’s only the second childrenswear designer to ever be inducted into the CFDA) which she infused with playfulness and joy. The same ethos was kept in mind when designing pieces for the home—happy, laid-back vibes meet timeless colors and prints.WEST ELM X KULE
