Róisín Murphy’s new album (her fifth solo release), Róisín Machine, comes on transparent blue vinyl in this limited edition set, which also includes a zine and signed photograph—and a T-shirt, should you opt in for that. Made with longtime collaborator DJ Parrot (aka Crooked Man, aka Richard Barratt), the album has been years in the making and explores dubbed-out disco, proto-house and various other dance sub-genres. Featuring the already-released “Incapable” and “Something More,” the album promises to be dark but danceable. Price is in Pounds.
Beloved artist Yayoi Kusama applies her uniquely whimsical vision to a limited edition gift box of Veuve Cliquot’s La Grande Dame 2012 Champagne, which features a label showcasing the artist’s speckles, too.

Staying in, cooking more and thinking about home improvement has led some of us to fantasize about kitchen upgrades. In their brand new range of ranges, Samsung has married crisp design with advanced technology. They’re not only WiFi-enabled for convenient connectivity, but they also now feature Smart Dial—an interface that learns your patterns to anticipate the right setting at the right moment. A built-in air fryer and fingerprint-resistant stainless steel finishes add even more allure.
Camera store Photodom just opened its physical shop in Brooklyn, making it the first Black-owned photography retailer in the borough. For those not able to drop by the brick and mortar location (where they also offer film processing and camera repair), there’s still plenty to be found online—from cameras to film and clothing. 50% of the proceeds from their Black Lives Matter collection of apparel and accessories goes to the Photodom Scholarship fund, which donates $1000 each month to support photography projects. This green three-button garment resembles a cashier’s vest, with an embroidered BLM patch in place of a store name. Made for all genders, it’s available from size small to XXXL.
Symbolizing abundance, fertility and love in various religions and cultures, the pomegranate promises good fortune and health.

An Hermès fragrance for all genders, L’Ombre des Merveilles weaves together the aromas of tonka bean and black tea. Helmed by in-house perfumer Christine Nagel, the scent exudes a woodsy, almost incense-like undercurrent. Sculptor Serge Mansau designed the star-speckled magnifying bottle, which rocks gently into one’s hand.
Recently launched Rasāsvāda concoctions are made from hand-gathered whole plants often used in ancient traditions and contemporary customs. These non-alcoholic botanical blends (“spirit restoratives” as the brand calls them) provide benefits that include aiding digestion, reducing stress and more. Available in three complex iterations—Rose Bergamot, Black Ginger and our favorite, the fresh and bitter Ruby Artemisia—these delightful drinks come in 375ml or 750ml bottles, and in cases of three or 12. Multi-packs of all three flavors are also available.
Featuring Tim Presley artwork from exhibitions at Chicago’s Soccer Club Club and LA’s The Pit, the book Under the Banner of Concern complements its visual power with some of the artist’s poetry. Abstract yet identifiable, Presely’s portraiture relies on his signature “every figure” symbology, marked by sunken eyes and hollowed out, almost stick figure-like, bodies. In some spreads, black and white figures clash or contrast, and sometimes collaborate within a larger scene. Under the Banner of Concern comprises 140 pages and 89 images, including a handful of previously unreleased Presley pieces.
Artist-led non-profit organization For Freedoms (co-founded by Hank Willis Thomas and Eric Gottesman) encourages creative public engagement, conversation and action in all areas of civic concern. Part of their Infinite Game project, the dynamically designed and easy to follow Infinite Playbook outlines various ways we can make change—from planning protests to hosting virtual town halls, posting public art and registering to vote. Another element of the initiative exists as apparel and sticker packs to help spread the word. Our favorite, the white long-sleeve, offers Infinite Game’s mission in bullet points, along with (wryly) the URL for the playbook. It’s available in size XS to XXL and intended for all genders.
Super-sturdy but soft and comfortable, Hedley & Bennett’s 1991 apron pays homage to the early ’90s thanks to its use of acid-washed 10-ounce denim. With two large lap pockets and a small double-compartment chest pocket, there’s plenty of room for notepads and pens for professionals, and whatever home cooks might need to tuck away. The generous 41-inch cotton waist straps make this piece one-size-fits-most, as does the adjustable neck strap.
Composed of 100% woven lyocell with satin accents, CDLP’s robe—part of their new HOME collection—offers relaxed comfort with a sartorial edge. From its rich burgundy colorway to the lustrous, sustainable and breathable material, the handsome robe looks and feels elegant. Each has been consciously crafted in Portugal, as with other products from the Swedish brand.
For the first time, all Sade’s albums will be available as a complete set in the six-record collection This Far.

Packaged in a case-bound box, the collection is available for pre-order now.
With every purchase yielding a donation to I Am A Voter, an initiative (and part of the non-profit ActBlue) that aims to create a “cultural shift” around voting and public engagement in politics, this “VOTE” T-shirt boasts a simple but crucial message. Crafted in the USA from cotton jersey, the shirt is intended for all genders and comes in XS to XXL. I Am A Voter helps people register to vote; provides reminders for various deadlines, absentee voting and voting days; and more.
