2022 has been the year for collaboration. Artists, musicians, influencers, even brand x brand – you name it, there’s been a partnership. Below is a roundup of some of our fav, and sometimes unexpected, collabs so far.
HipDot is a vegan clean beauty brand known for its unique collaborations with chart-topping musicians, box office hits, and even snack foods (we’re looking at you, Nissin Cup Noodles). In May, HipDot teamed up with Girl Scouts of the USA to create a limited line of Girl Scout cookies-inspired products including two eye shadow palettes, a set of makeup brushes, and a tasty lipstick trio named Thin Mints, Coconut Caramel, and Lemon. But don’t worry, this isn’t a sugary drug-store balm. The shades are neutral and are made with coconut oil, argon oil, and vitamin E to keep your lips soft and hydrated.
Iris Apfel x H&M
(Currently sold out)
You can’t talk fashion without mentioning Iris Apfel. The 101-year-old style icon is still as fierce as ever, as proven in her collab with fast-fashion brand H&M. This collection basks in its over-the-topness with vivid colors, clashing prints, and glamorous accents. It is a truly dynamic collection that is bound to put the wearer square in the spotlight. And hey, if you’re daring enough to be embroidered, jacquarded, feathered, and bedazzled all in one outfit, that’s exactly where you should be!
Lizzo x Fabletics
Subscription box giant Fabletics tapped musician Lizzo to create the new size-inclusive brand of shapewear YITTY. Designed to fit sizes XS to 6X and made with recycled materials, YITTY has a selection of bra tops, bodysuits, leggings, and more, meant to celebrate every body. Unlike many brands that simply scale up or down using a formula, YITTY boasts being fit on multiple body types for more accurate sizing. These body-loving garments are loud and proud, so whether you wear them under your outfit or as your outfit is up to you.
Puma x Cara Delevingne x Carra Sykes
Model and LGBTQIA+ activist Cara Delevingne has teamed up with Puma since 2020 to create an annual Pride collection. This year, she collaborated with artist Carra Sykes to design a capsule collection called “Together Forever.” With sporty, team-inspired graphics, the pieces invoke the power of a group united. Puma pledged to donate 20% of the collection’s proceeds to benefit the nonprofit GLAAD, whose aim is to share stories from the LGBTQ community that accelerate acceptance. Now that’s a cheer-worthy goal.
Manolo Blahnik x Birkenstock
(currently sold out)
Hard to picture this one, but it’s for real. In fact, the famed shoe designer even claims to be a longtime fan of the lo-fi, hi-comfort sandal brand. This limited-edition collection takes two of Birkenstock’s most popular styles and puts them through the glam machine, trading neutral suedes and jute for jewel-toned velvets, leather, and those dazzling signature square buckles.
