Our days are punctuated by scouting new talent, attending market appointments, and scrolling Instagram in an effort to unearth the products, people, and news you actually need to know. Here’s what we Slacked one another about this week.

Totally Floored: Beni Rugs x Colin King

I spend a lot of my free time daydreaming about my next wish-list trip, but in between travels I’m always on the hunt for pieces that give me a sense of wanderlust at home. Right now, this Spoken Lines collection from Beni Rugs, made in collaboration with Colin King, is transporting me to Europe. The line was inspired by Milan’s mosaic entryways and rustic palettes. Until I can hop on the next flight to Italy, I’m happy to settle for la dolce vita under my feet for now. —Raven McMillan, assistant editor

Footloose: Yinka Ilori x Fit Flop

Nobody does patterns quite like British Nigerian artist Yinka Ilori, who just has a way with pairing the craziest bright colors. And after his recent collaboration with Fit Flop, we can all bring his joyful aesthetic to our summer shoe lineup. I pretty much wear slides everywhere I go this time of year, which means my midday bodega Popsicle runs just got a major glow-up. —Julia Stevens, style editor

Shower Hour: Dusen Dusen x Coming Soon 

Have we ever met an Ellen Van Dusen pattern we didn’t like? While her textile brand’s towels in nearly every colorway you can think of are already stacked high in my closet, the same textural terry cloth can now be hung as a shower curtain, courtesy of Dusen Dusen’s latest collaboration with Coming Soon. I’ll be relying on the cheerful combo of yellow and this year’s It color, sage, as a quick, easy way to inject my drab, all-white rental bathroom (sans windows) with some much needed sunshine. —Morgan Bulman, associate commerce editor

Pack Up in Pastels: New Colors From Rimowa 

I got really into luggage on our first trip to Japan about six years ago. (If you go yourself, pick some up at Narita and fill it with goodies—you won’t regret it!) But I haven’t been as smitten with a roller as I am with Rimowa’s recently announced new pastel, Provençal-inspired hues—sunny citron and soothing lavande. I love that the handles are the same color as the case, disappearing like a magic trick when not in use. And if you’re looking for extra space to store books or headphones, there are matching totes to go along with it. It is exactly what I want to steer onto an airplane this summer. Next stop: Anywhere. —Samantha Weiss-Hills, deputy commerce editor

About Face: Doré Skin Care

French photographer and always stylish person Garance Doré just launched a skin-care collection that’s as simply chic as she is. The three-product line, called Doré, includes a cleanser, moisturizer, and allover balm, which I’ve already incorporated into my before-bed routine. And if I (whoops!) leave them out on my bathroom counter, the vert packaging is a welcome greeting come morning. —Julie Vadnal, deputy editor
