8@8: Your Morning Scoop

Sanrio and Fila’s new collection is the ’90s collab of our dreams

Today is...

National Louisiana Day!

News of the Day:

+ As you may well know, we here at NYLON really love Sanrio. So, you can imagine our excitement when we heard that the brand recently dropped a collab with activewear brand Fila, which features the signature characters on the super-sporty attire. The collection includes men’s and women’s pieces and is available exclusively at Urban Outfitters. It's a limited-edition run, so hurry to shop everything while you still can, here.  

+ Lin-Manuel Miranda has been a guiding force when it comes to relief for Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria. Now, he’s taking his beloved show, Hamilton, to the island—and reprising his starring role in the production. While he had already been planning to bring “the story of this Caribbean founding father to the Caribbean,” the push to bring it this soon after the hurricane is in an effort to show that the island can, and will, recover quickly from this natural disaster. What’s more, a huge portion of the tickets will be sold for just $10—a Hamilton, if you will.

+ New Lush product alert! The all-natural beauty retailer just released two new body sprays in two of their most loved scents, Twilight and Rose Jam, which are meant to help you sleep better. The sprays are priced at around $40, but they come in a generously sized spray bottle, so it’s definitely worth the investment. 

+ Pretty Little Liars star Troian Bellisario just unveiled a major hair transformation. Even though she’s known for her changeups onscreen, she’s never strayed from her IRL mid-length brunette cut—until now. Bellisario posted a selfie on Instagram yesterday, and she’s now rocking a bright peach colored bob. See it for yourself, below.

+ The wait is over: STORY brought back its beloved store-within-a-store holiday concept, this time inspired by the upcoming film The Greatest Showman and designed by David Stark. The annual gift guide-inspired space boasts everything from exclusive collabs with Edie Parker, Alexis Bittar, and Verloop to low-key some of the best holiday gifts you will find this season. Check out the space in NYC or online starting today.

Deal of the Day:

New Yorkers, rejoice! The annual Gilt Sample Sale is returning to our streets, and you still have time to buy the tickers. The event will have men’s, women’s, and children’s clothes as well as housewares up for grabs, all at up to 80 percent off their original price. You’ll have to pay for early access for the Friday-through-Sunday event—a worthwhile investment to shop huge discounts on brands like Valentino, Tom Ford, and The Kooples—but entry gets cheaper with the later entry dates and is free to the public on Sunday. Check out all the details and grab a ticket here.
