Today in a nutshell: Product news at a glance


John Hardy

Those of a certain age will remember LimeWire as a post-Napster way of efficiently grabbing music for free, making it one of the easiest ways to share and download music long before Spotify exists (and when Apple’s only media and music option was still called the iTunes Store). Now, like other properties before it, LimeWire has been resurrected for the modern era, and – sadly, like most things today – has been reworked into a platform for buying and selling NFTs. “Originally focusing on music”, LimeWire will be, according to new LimeWire co-owner and entrepreneur Julian Zehetmayr, “an additional channel for artists to sell exclusive music and artwork directly to collectors and engage with their most loyal fan community.” For now, this new iteration of LimeWire is stuck behind a waiting list, with early adopters getting early access to the reborn platform. Sadly, it doesn’t look like you’ll be able to download MTV’s TRL chart-scoring singles with this iteration of LimeWire, but hey, time will tell how successful this nostalgia game will be. We provide updates on Woodford Reserve’s limited Kentucky Derby-themed release, Specialized’s radical new MTB helmet and Bodega’s retro-inspired Hoka collaboration. It’s fast today.

This collection of John Hardy jewelry represents an industrial evolution.

Inspired by hardware and incorporating geometric shapes, the Industrial collection consists of a series of rings, bracelets and necklaces that all embody a unique vision, with a selection that should suit a variety of different styles. . The common denominator across several pieces is the industrial band ring, which is offered in matte black rhodium-plated sterling silver as a standalone piece, or as part of the industrial link bracelet and industrial pendant necklace. Other pieces include the double-row industrial bracelet – which features a textured push-button clasp – and the sleek industrial necklace.


Woodford Reserve presents the 2022 Kentucky Derby Special Release.

Each year, Woodford Reserve releases a limited-edition Kentucky Derby bourbon, using the bottle as a canvas to showcase a different performer each year. This year, artist and Kentucky native Jaime Corum adds “Dreams in Bloom” to the bottle, which features three sprinting thoroughbreds against a background of flowers. As for what is in bottle, Woodford Reserve fans will find the brand’s classic Distiller’s Select bourbon. Expect it to land in late March.


Specialized launches the brand new Ambush 2 mountain bike helmet with a radical design.

We think Specialized’s Ambush 2 is a must-buy based on looks alone, but we know that radical new technology has to perform as well as it looks. Fortunately, the Ambush 2 packs tons of amazing features, from its high safety rating (a 5-star Virginia Tech helmet rating) to its breathability (thanks to an integrated MIPS SL solution, optimized dual-density EPS foam and a “4D eyebrow cooling” airflow) and pure convenience (we’re looking at you, sunglasses storage).


Cult sneaker boutique Bodega teams up with Hoka One One.

Boston’s Bodega is well known for its selection of high-end sneakers, not to mention its own collaborations with brands like New Balance. The retailer has teamed up with Hoka One One to review the Kaha Low and Ora recovery slides, offering the same technology you’ve come to expect from these sturdy shoes (yes, even the slide) from Hoka. The most noticeable difference here is the choice of colorways on both models, which have a retro mid-’90s outdoor gear vibe; both models mix Martini Olive with bright blue and fuschia. The Kaha Low and Ora Slide drop at Bodega on March 25, before hitting Hoka’s online store on April 1.


Ever wanted to skate on Elton John’s face? Now is your chance.

Palace today launches a comprehensive Elton John collection (fully backed by the artist himself, if the teaser video is any indication), celebrating Elton John’s iconic 1975 performance at Dodger Stadium in Los Angeles. The collection includes a selection of t-shirts, a tracksuit and a skateboard. In classic Palace fashion, you’ll notice the brand has subtly swapped its name in place of the Dodgers brand. The collection drops at 11 a.m. today, so if that’s something you’re interested in, shop as early as possible.
