Welcome to another edition of Launch Digest, where we bring you the latest and greatest product launches to hit the market across the DTC universe. This week, in true Quality Edit fashion, we’re bringing you a taste of everything – from the hottest new vinaigrette to a wearable sleeping bag you’ll never want to take off. Let’s not waste any more words and get right to it, shall we?
Fly By Jing Launches Another Condiment You’ll Put On Every Single Thing You Eat, $16
Fly By Jing, the DTC darling known for its addictive hot sauces that enhance everything (yes, even ice cream), just dropped its brand new Chili Crisp Vinaigrette ($16). Inspired by founder Jing Gao’s own personal recipe, the Vinaigrette pairs the brand’s wildly popular Sichuan Chili Crisp with premium soy sauce and aged black vinegar from the Sichuan province. It’s got a precise balance of salt, fat, acid, and heat – and it’s precisely what you’ll be pouring on any dish, from a crisp, bright salad to noodles, dumplings, or wontons.
Hygge Your Home(wear): OFFHOURS Wraps You In The Coziness Of Your Bed, 24/7, $425
Your at-home wardrobe is about to get ten times more indulgent – whether or not you’ve had to turn the heat on yet. OFFHOURS, inventors of The Homecoat we didn’t know we needed until we knew it existed, introduced The Overvest ($425) earlier this week. It’s the brand’s first transitional piece, intended for both outdoor and indoor use, and it basically means you can get away with wearing a sleeping bag to grab your morning latté. The Overvest is non-restrictive, sleeveless, buttery soft, and features a double zipper closure, so you can regulate your own temperature as you please. Its unique hood, complete with a bungee drawstring, means that you can completely cocoon at a moment’s notice. The pockets – which are enlarged and feature secondary hidden zip pockets – can fit a paperback book. If you haven’t already added this to your cart and completed purchase, and somehow need more convincing, the Overvest is also sustainably made from recycled materials. Zip yourself into this rich olive green puffer – I’ll see you whenever hibernation’s over.
MERIT Breaks Into Great Skincare – And You Might Just Get A Great New Glow, $38
MERIT, with the launch of its new Great Skin Instant Glow Serum ($38) yesterday, wants to be more than just clean makeup. While the brand has earned a cult following for its minimalist makeup products that are good for your body, skin, and the planet, MERIT announces its entrance into skincare with Great Skin, a weightless formula that hydrates and plumps your complexion for a glass-like, bright appearance. Even more exciting for skincare geeks across the globe? The brand partnered with esthetician Biba de Sousa to eliminate 73 ingredients that are technically “clean,” but potentially acne-triggering. MERIT means serious business: the brand’s entire Instagram was wiped about a month before launch, leaving only a curated selection of posts that highlight simple, bold, glowy beauty that puts skin first. Go get some Great Skin – and let us know if it lives up to its name.
A Ceramic Brand Is Making My New Favorite Glassware (With A Distinctly Vintage Feel), from $80
MERIT isn’t the only one to break into a new category this week. While Haand is known for its beautiful ceramics, the brand marked its first ever deviation from the form with its first glassware collection, which launched on Wednesday in collaboration with glass artist Chris Kerr-Ayer. The new launch features three styles: a wine glass, a highball, and a tumbler, all of which were inspired by historic glassware and feature tool marks, slight imperfections, and small variations in each piece to preserve Chris’s personal skill and craftsmanship. It’s not often that I see new glassware I love and want in my own collection – and this new, vintage-inspired launch from Haand is a notable exception.
Vacation Hits The Courts With Prince, from $35
Our favorite nostalgic sunscreen brand, Vacation, is yet again turning back the clock – this time to the early 90s, as it’s teamed up with iconic tennis brand Prince for a limited-edition collaboration. Inspired by a fictitious Tennis Championship (go ahead, buy into the fantasy), the capsule collection consists of a retro t-shirt, hat, and “Ball Boy” scented candle. What might that name allude to, you ask? Vacation answers, whether you can better imagine the fragrance or not: “Freshly Uncanned Tennis Balls, Vacation Sunscreen, Prince Cotton Sweatbands, and Refreshing Cucumber Sandwiches.” I’m going to need to smell this to believe it. Federer may have retired, but Vacation and Prince will play on.
Put The Pieces Together With A Ghia Spritz In Hand, $38
Reigning non-alcoholic aperitif brand Ghia is beginning to roll out some delightful holiday offerings. The first of more to come? Holiday Puzzles that you’ll want to frame and never take apart. Pick from three beautiful designs, ranging from 500 to 1,000 pieces, and add a few packs of Le Spritz while you’re at it. Your (and my) new favorite autumn pastime, found – for long rainy days and late nights alike.
