Each week, our inbox runneth over with news of gear, apparel and tech releases from around the world. In this feature, we’ll parse through the best of it. Today: Nike releases it’s federation kits for the 2022 World Cup, Sonos drops the new Sub Mini, and Nikka Whiskey gets flowery.
Created with the ideas of unity and togetherness, the new Nike USA National Federation Kits, set to be worn during the World Cup 2022, dropped on September 15; the wavy tie-dye blue kit and subtle white home kit will make watching the USMNT try to break into FIFA’s elite this winter even more enjoyable.
Whoa, there! American heritage labels GANT and Wrangler — both founded in the 1940s — have come together for an archival western-inspired capsule full of bold bootcuts, loud colors and denim, denim, denim. It’s the perfect yee-haw pickup for fall — don’t wait to lasso yourself up some, as the 20-piece capsule is bound to sell out.
The versatility of Our Place’s new containers is rather impressive. The Container Collection features three convenient, easily stackable sized glass containers that are designed to store, save, reheat (in the microwave and oven!) and serve leftovers seamlessly (and quite beautifully.)
Keeping in line with Rumpl’s sustainability ethos, the CozyHemp Blanket is the latest addition to the brand’s famed natural fiber blanket collection. Made from a blend of hemp and renewable organic cotton, the new throws might be the brand’s coziest and stylish offering, and are available in four groovy, retro-style colorways.
The recently launched collab between the ‘80s icon and “genderful” candle company Boy Smells stars a limited edition fragrance inspired by Jones’s home country of Jamacia (specifically the musk of the island after it rains). Top notes of black pepper and bergamot develop into fluid, floral scents of freesia, waterlily and Turkish rose, while a spicy blend of cedarwood, salted musks and wet stones accord ground the candle.
Returning for their third collection, Gucci and The North Face are back with a collision of high-fashion and Gorpcore appeal, featuring wavy kaleidoscope designs and archival styles from the 1970s. Statement pieces include a goose-feather down-padded Sierra Parka and new styles like the Rough Rider Pant.
The latest e-reader from Amazon is also the lightest and most compact Kindle, featuring 6” 300 ppi high-resolution display and two times the storage. It’s also glare-free, with an adjustable front light and dark mode, plus a single charge lasts up to six weeks.
This powder promises get tough on chafing, sweat, and sticky skin. Apply as a targeted stream, it’s good for hands, chest, feet or in your shorts. Made with cornstarch, arrowroot powder, aloe leaf extract and peppermint oil.
The rock band KISS is no stranger to the spirits world, but bassist Gene Simmons heads out on his own (well, with Wisconsin’s Minhas Distillery) for this vodka (with a mashbill of 100% organic Canadian wheat) which is filtered through both carbon and real gold. The end result, we’re told, is rounded with a dry, lingering finish, a peppery snap and light impressions of vanilla and orange. Available here in the U.S. in 2023.
Sssupreme and Nike ACG have teamed up for a slithering capsule of rarified grails, including the much-anticipated Snakeskin hoodie seen above. To the surprise of absolutely no one, the collection sold out immediately upon its release Thursday, but you can still find the patterned partnership bopping around the resale market.
After previously working together in 2018, Puma and German fashion luxury house MCM have teamed up on a one-of-a-kind basketball sneaker featuring an Italian leather upper, terry cotton lining and a rubber outsole. Made in Italy, the shoes come adorned with cognac Visetos Monogram highlights that make these kicks stars both on and off the court.
The woman-owned coffee brand is reimagining decaf with its first-ever product. Uncaffeinated Classic Coffee is a premium freeze-dried instant coffee that includes gut-friendly ingredients like prebiotics, antioxidants and anti-inflammatories, so you can enjoy a cup of smooth and sweet coffee without the crash.
The great RV minds behind the silver bullet do more than just trailers, you know. This week, Airstream beefed up its camper van offerings by adding the new Rangeline series. While their other touring coaches are built on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis, this one starts life as a Ram ProMaster 3500, which brings down the price significantly. You’re still getting the brand’s best-in-class design and top-of-the-line comfort, but with a much lower barrier to entry; previous vans have started around $200,000, but the Rangeline starts at $131,882. This model is small enough that those new to the lifestyle won’t have a problem driving it coast-to-coast, but big enough that, with an optional pop-top, it can sleep up to four people.
If you’re part of the increasingly humongous F1 fanbase here in the States, you probably already know TAG Heuer’s connection to the sport; they’re partnered with Red Bull Racing, so the Swiss watchmaker’s name can be seen on Max Verstappen’s car as he takes podium after podium. Now, the brand is punching up its own liveries with the introduction of three new chronographs in its Formula 1 line in red, yellow and green. With brushed sunray dials, rubber straps and quartz movements, these new timepieces blend functionality with a serious dose of gusto.
Whisky and flowers? This excellent collaboration bouquet, via BloomsyBox, pairs a bottle of Nikka Days (note: great for whisky highballs) paired with an arrangement of yellow mini calla lilies, white lisianthus flowers, lily grass and yellow roses.
Get a cool, compact subwoofer to further bring out the bass (and boldness) of your Sonos Beam or Ray soundbar, sans distortion. The cylindrical Sub Mini, at just 14 lbs., was purposely built for smaller-sized rooms. Preorder now, available Oct. 6 (we’ll have a full review soon).
Paul Feig certainly made lockdown better with his Instagram cocktails. And now, the director (Bridesmaids, A Simple Favor) brings forth not only an elegant cocktail book (featuring 125 recipes), but also discusses how to throw parties, what music to play, what glassware you need and more, along with funny insider stories about his Hollywood life. And you can read our interview with Feig, regarding his own line of gin, here.
