Our days are filled with scouting for new talent, attending market appointments, and scrolling through Instagram in an effort to unearth the products, people, and news you actually need to know about. Here’s what we gave each other this week.
Since I’m the art director of Domino’s, food and design are naturally part of the conversation with my family. And that is why The River Cafe look book, made for children, it belongs on our shelf. I like that it tests the typical hokey children’s cookbooks with sophisticated photography and seriously mouthwatering recipes for adults. I mean, who doesn’t want to eat casarecce al pesto for dinner, especially when your 8-year-old has prepared them with love? —Kim Grey, artistic director
The fashion kids were thrilled when James and Nike announced a collaboration over the summer, but it’s the French brand’s partnership with Thecla fabrics that makes us swoon here in the land of interior design. The two unite in a collection of subtle stripes and a soothing color palette on playful garments such as men’s boxer-influenced strapless sleepwear, fluffy towels big enough for two, and cozy percale sheets. Sure, an It bag is cool, but being wrapped up in one oversized shirt inspired dressing gown under the comfort of a linen bedspread is always fashionable for me –Raven McMillanassistant editor
Fefo Studio is new cotton textile collection arrive just in time to complete a festive table (or to cross that amazing food-loving guest off your shopping list). I’m going to wrap my freshly baked brioche in the mustard And dipped in rose bread towels. It’s hard to believe that these colorful, saturated dyes are made with edible ingredients like pomegranate peels, tamarind, and dates. —Morgan BulmannAssociate Commerce Editor
When gallery owner Emma Scully asked the New York potter Simone Bodmer Turner go great for her Design the Miami boothBodmer-Turner did just that with a sculptural plaster mirror– his largest independent piece to date. The extra-large entrance bow is a fitting addition to the show, which is dubbed “Reflecting Women” and will also feature works by Bec Brittain, Rooms Studio, Jane Atfield, Ibiyanε, Jaye Kim, Nel Verbeke, Kaja Upelj and Jenny Min , until December 4th. —Lydia Geiselhome editor
I love New York for many reasons, but mostly for Chelsea’s gallery scene, where you can open a door to see an amazing collection of William Eggleston’s photographs on your way to dinner. His latest exhibition at the David Zwirner Gallery, “The Outlands”, coincides with the release of his reserve (which I regret not leaving with). What I loved about the raw, saturated images (many of which had never been seen publicly before) was the scale, large enough that the scenes appear to be right in front of you. You still have time to see the show before it closes on December 17th. —Julia Stevensstyle editor
I remember going to the latest Paloma Wool New York pop-up, and let’s just say my closet scored big. As someone who prefers in-person shopping, I will definitely be returning to SoHo for his new popup buy more from the Barcelona-based fashion brand; it is open from 1 to 22 December. Spoiler alert: I’ll probably walk away with one of the oversized duvets. —Belle Moriziophotographer and assistant photo editor
If you were to see my “jewelry box” (which is just a few plastic trays on my dresser) right now, you might be slightly horrified. Could decidedly use some work and lucky for me, jewelry designer based in Northern California Ariel Gordon created a solution. The designer just released a beautiful scalloped velvet jewelry box, 10 years in the making, is as functional as it is pretty and is definitely worth the investment. Featuring two levels of organization for necklaces, rings, and earrings, the eye-catching piece could (and should!) sit easily on the dresser in plain sight. —Angela Tafoiaeditorial director, branded + talent
All it took was a very frightening and turbulent flight for the photographer and writer Jamie Beck to achieve what he really wanted: to live in France. But unlike the rest of us, she actually did it and snapped pictures along the way as he settled into a small village in Provence. Now you can follow his journey with his new book, An American in Provence, which is filled with melancholic images and stories that make you wonder, “Why don’t I live in France too?” —Julia Vadnaldeputy director
