Every week, our inbox is overflowing with news about gear, apparel, and tech news from around the world. In this feature, we will analyze the best of them. Today: Nike releases its 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 solidarity, the new National Federation Nike USA jerseys, which will be worn during the 2022 World Cup, were released on September 15; the wavy tie-dye blue kit and subtle white home kit will make it even more enjoyable to watch the USMNT try to break into FIFA’s top flight this winter.
Wow, there! American heritage brands GANT and Wrangler – both founded in the 1940s – have come together for a western-inspired archive capsule full of bold bootcuts, bold colors and denim, denim, denim. It’s the perfect yee-haw pickup for fall – don’t wait to get it, because the 20-piece capsule is bound to sell out.
The versatility of the new containers from Our Place is quite impressive. The container collection includes three convenient, easily stackable glass containers that are designed for storing, preserving, reheating (in the microwave and oven!) and serve leftovers seamlessly (and quite nicely.)
In line with Rumpl’s sustainability philosophy, the CozyHemp Blanket is the latest addition to the brand’s popular collection of natural fiber blankets. Made from a blend of hemp and renewable organic cotton, the new throws might be the brand’s most comfortable and stylish offering, and come in four groovy, retro-style colorways.
The recently launched collaboration between the ’80s icon and “gender” candle company Boy Smells features a limited-edition fragrance inspired by Jones’ home country of Jamacia (specifically the island’s musk after the rain). Top notes of black pepper and bergamot transform into flowing, floral scents of freesia, water lily and Turkish rose, while a spicy blend of cedarwood, salty musks and wet stones tunes the ground to the candle.
Back for their third collection, Gucci and The North Face are back with a collision of high fashion and Gorpcore appeal, featuring wavy kaleidoscope patterns and archival 1970s styles. Highlight pieces include a Sierra parka quilted goose down and new styles like the Rough Rider pants.
Amazon’s latest eReader is also the lightest and most compact Kindle, with a high-resolution 6-inch 300 ppi screen and twice the storage. It’s also glare-free, with an adjustable front light and dark mode, and a single charge lasts up to six weeks.
This powder promises to resist chafing, sweating, and sticky skin. Apply in a targeted spray, it’s good for hands, chest, feet or in your shorts. Made with cornstarch, arrowroot powder, aloe leaf extract and peppermint oil.
Rock band KISS are no stranger to the world of spirits, but bassist Gene Simmons is going it alone (well, with Wisconsin’s Minhas Distillery) for this vodka (with a 100% organic Canadian wheat mashbill) that’s filtered both by carbon and real gold. The end result, we’re told, is rounded off with a dry, lingering finish, a peppery snap and light hints of vanilla and orange. Available here in the US in 2023.
Sssupreme and Nike ACG have teamed up for a slippery capsule of rarefied grails, including the highly anticipated Snakeskin hoodie seen above. To absolutely no one’s surprise, the collection sold out immediately after its release on Thursday, but you can still find the patterned partnership doing the rounds in the resale market.
After working together in 2018, Puma and German luxury house MCM have teamed up to create a one-of-a-kind basketball sneaker featuring an Italian leather upper, cotton terry lining and rubber outsole. Made in Italy, the shoes are adorned with Cognac Visetos Monogram highlights that make these kicks stars on and off the court.
The woman-owned coffee brand is reinventing decaf with its very first product. Caffeine-Free Classic Coffee is premium freeze-dried instant coffee that includes gut-friendly ingredients like prebiotics, antioxidants, and anti-inflammatories, so you can enjoy a smooth, sweet cup of coffee without a crash.
The great VR minds behind the silver bullet do more than just trailers, you know. This week, Airstream bolstered its motorhome offering by adding the new Rangeline series. While their other touring coaches are built on the Mercedes-Benz Sprinter chassis, this one starts life as the Ram ProMaster 3500, which brings the price down considerably. You still get the brand’s best design and premium comfort, but with a much lower barrier to entry; previous vans started around $200,000, but the Rangeline starts at $131,882. This model is small enough that those new to the lifestyle will have no problem driving it from coast to coast, but big enough that with an optional pop-up roof, it can accommodate up to four people.
If you’re part of the growing F1 fanbase here in the US, you’re probably already familiar with 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 climbs from podium to podium. Today, the brand is getting a makeover with the introduction of three new chronographs to its Formula 1 line in red, yellow and green. With brushed sunburst dials, rubber straps and quartz movements, these new watches combine function and excitement.
Whiskey and flowers? This excellent collaboration bouquet, via BloomsyBox, combines a bottle of Nikka Days (note: great for whiskey highballs) paired with an arrangement of mini yellow calla lilies, white lisianthus flowers, lilies and yellow roses.
