This edition of Brand New is looking at new releases from brands like Diptyque, Hoek Home, Aquazzura, Swarovski, and more.
Hoek Home recently debuted a program of artist collaborations with its first, featuring the artist Shantell Martin. Made with the Brooklyn-based brand’s eco-conscious patented snap-lock innovation, Martin has conceived an exclusive range of furniture, art, and design pieces bearing her signature black and white abstractions. Lighten the mood in any space with playful pieces like coffee tables, coasters, wall art, and more.
With holiday gatherings just around the corner, we’ve got our eye on Aquazzura’s capsule collection with Swarovski. The limited-edition collaboration—also part of Aquazzura’s tenth anniversary celebration—includes several colorways of the bejeweled Aura heeled sandal. Available in Very Peri, lime green, Bougainvillea pink, and shimmering silver or gold transparent plexi, the sandal features glossy laminated napa leather straps, glittering crystals, and a heel made to look like it’s fashioned from giant octagonal stones.
The material science brand PANGAIA has introduced a collection with the artist Kenny Scharf. Embracing an earth-positive message shared between the brand and Scharf, the collaborative capsule pulls from the artist’s works like Swan Style and Paradis Perdu. Scharf’s animated figures appear as graphics on a series of hoodies, track pants, and t-shirts, which are imagined in soft, plushy hues like sand, orchid purple, and celestial blue.
The most recent iteration of Deborah Pagani’s DP Pin is a collaboration with an NFT artist from 1,989 Sisters named Blair Breitenstein. While the beloved hair accessory typically comes in shades like pink, silver, and black, this fun take has been imagined in iridescent-coated stainless steel—much like the version Breitenstein has depicted in the hair of her artwork’s subjects.
Encompassed in Marlo Laz’s “Desert Rising” collection is a suite of ornate gold jewelry making up the “Southwestern Heart” line. Inspired by the trailblazing women of the American West, like Georgia O’Keefe and Milicent Rogers, the collection’s bright yellow gold, delicate stones, and floral and paisley motifs make up pieces like hoop earrings with tiny, dangling hearts, the Southwestern Heart Sardinia chain, and a dainty heart on a golden chain.
The mental health-focused apparel brand Madhappy and the iconic restaurant Sant Ambroeus released a limited-edition collaboration of cozy wearables earlier this fall. For the initiative, crowd favorite Madhappy silhouettes (including a fleece hoodie, a crewneck, and a jersey t-shirt) have been reimagined in pastel options like soft yellow, baby blue, and cloud white. Each piece bears a special dual logo, inspired by the Milanese eatery’s “Old World, New City” ethos that underscores the importance of savoring every moment.
Diptyque’s latest range of products in its signature 34 boulevard Saint Germain scent is a sensuous experience you won’t want to pass by. Choose from beautifully-packaged offerings like candles, diffusers, room sprays, and scented objects—or buy them all to fill your entire home with the fragrance, which gives off hints of moss, spices, and floral and woody notes.
IVAR, created by Ritika Ravi, recently opened its New York flagship on the Upper East Side. Featured inside are the Indian designer’s stunning creations that encompass an array of stones—like diamonds, Mozambique rubies, and Sri Lankan sapphires—with elements of traditional craftsmanship, such as Polki (uncut diamonds with no enhancements or chemical treatments) and enamel.
