This Week’s Must-Haves: Samsung’s Galaxy A8, a Versace Thong and Camila Cabello’s New Album

It’s almost Christmas — so while nothing much is coming out for the rest of the year, that doesn’t mean our favorite style companies are sleeping. They’re busy getting new products ready for early 2018. From the new Samsung Galaxy A8 and A8+ smartphones to the solo debut from Fifth Harmony’s Camila Cabello. Here are the must-have items we’re lusting for.

 

Camila, Camila Cabello

As a part of the girl-group Fifth Harmony, Camila Cabello gave us hits like “Worth It” and “Work from Home.” She’s also worked with Shawn Mendes and Machine Gun Kelly on her own hits like this year’s “Bad Things.”  She finally unveils her solo debut, Camila, with eleven brand new songs including her latest hit, “Havana.” While it doesn’t come out until Jan. 12, you can download a few tracks from it already. Her sultry voice will light up your mood this holiday season. $9.99 pre-order from iTunes 

The Frigondas

The Frigondas is a genius invention. This new countertop appliance is a hybrid between a microwave and a cooler. The Frigondas can heat up a meal like a regular microwave, but it can also cool drinks — knocking your room-temperature beer down to 37ºF in just six minutes. The Frigondas was designed in Spain and manufactured in Korea, putting a blast chiller in a traditional microwave to make meal preparation faster and easier. Though unfortunately the Frigondas isn’t on sale yet, they’re working on a public website. The creators are also working to get the Frigondas certified for the U.S. market. Expected to retail for approximately $1000 at a TBD website

Stretch Cotton Thong, Versace

Believe it or not, some guys actually prefer to wear thongs. Thongs are comfortable because there’s no extra fabric to bunch up in unpleasant places. They’re also breathable and make you feel confident. After all, thongs are synonymous with sex appeal, and are a big turn on for both men and women. We particularly like this classic stretch cotton thong from Versace. Since it’s Versace, it sports the label’s Medusa motif on the front — along with baroque detail on the waistband. There’s also a supportive lined pouch for functionality. $41.50 from selfridges.com
