Racked is no longer publishing. Thank you to everyone who read our work over the years. The archives will remain available here; for new stories, head over to Vox.com, where our staff is covering consumer culture for The Goods by Vox. You can also see what we’re up to by signing up here.

It would be easy to assume by the looks of your inbox that the only things happening in the world of shopping this week are Memorial Day sales, but there’s actually a lot of cool new stuff that we want you to know about.

For starters, new swimwear brand Summersalt joined the direct-to-consumer sphere with tons of really cute suits all under $100, and LA-based salon Olive & June released a genius post-pedicure sandal. Prada debuted its new Cinéma eyewear collection alongside an original short film, and Nike announced its fifth annual BETRUE collection celebrating the LGBTQ community just ahead of Pride Month. Get the details on all of that and more below.


Meet Summersalt, the new brand making cute, eco-friendly swimwear under $100. Made from recycled materials, Summersalt prides itself on being stronger than any other swim line out there, as its suits offer up to UPF 50 and can handle all the sand, sweat, and chlorine you throw at them without losing shape. You can shop basically every style here: one-pieces, bikinis, high-waisted bottoms, cut-outs and mesh panelling — all for $95 or less. (Big plus: You can pick up to six pieces to try on at home for free with the brand’s try-before-you-buy program.)

Olive & June made game-changing, post-pedicure sandals. Gone are the days of awkward disposable sandals and dented polish! Los Angeles-based salon Olive & June teamed up with Charlotte Stone to dream up the Saturday Sandal ($65) — a sleek, strappy shoe that can be tied a dozen ways. Not only are they a really good idea, but they’re cute enough to wear all day, too. Read more about them here.

Gurls Talk just dropped limited-edition T-shirts in a feel-good, three-way collab. Model Adwoa Aboah’s Gurls Talk teamed up with Embellished Talk on a run of limited-edition Everybody x Gurl Talk T-shirts. The shirts ring in at $100, and have been hand-embroidered and embellished with various cool designs. All proceeds from the collab will go directly to the Baytree Centre, a charity working with and empowering women and girls. Get yours here.

Monogram Let’s Pretend Boxy Tee, $65
Nike VaporMax BETRUE Edition, $225

Prada rolled out its new Cinéma eyewear collection. The brand’s newest Cinéma eyewear collection includes seven new sunglasses that draw inspiration from the 1960s with their classic rounded shape, and are available now from $390-$430. The sunglasses made their big debut in the new Prada Cinéma short film — starring model Giedre Dukauskaite — that you can watch here.

Monogram debuted crop tops to celebrate summer weather. The graphic T-shirt gurus unveiled two completely new silhouettes to their lineup this week, because summer is so! close! Both the Boxy Tee (cropped to fall at your waist with a relaxed crew neck and loose through the body) and the Baby Tee (‘90s-inspired fit with a crew neck and cap sleeve) ring in at $65 and feature three new original graphics. Monogram items usually move pretty fast, so we suggest you don’t wait too long to cop yours.

Nike’s 2017 BETRUE Collection is coming. The brand has released an annual collection nodding to the LGBTQ community for the last five years, and this year the offerings are big. Special editions of everything from footwear and apparel — including the Classic Cortez sneakers ($90) and the buzzy VaporMax ($225) — will be available, incorporating rainbow gradients and other prominent symbols of pride into the designs. The collection starts rolling out on June 1st on NikeLab.com, but online in North America June 5th.
