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.
Pillow Talk: Zoe Schlacter’s Fall Collection
Trippy prints and gonzo colors abound in Zoe Schlacter’s newest collection of blankets and home accessories, just released last week. Schlacter takes cues from all that is wild and wiggly, and their practice nods to Memphis design and woman weavers of the Bauhaus, like Anni Albers and Gunta Stölz. I’m coveting the knit pillow covers and Schlacter’s food-inspired candle collab with Brooklyn-based artist Piera Bochner (hello, spindly Snake Squash, I would like to put you on my dinner table). —Samantha Weiss-Hills, deputy commerce editor
Smoky Sips: Agua Mágica
There’s always a buzzy new bottle to add to your bar cart, but Agua Mágica stands apart from the rest. Founded by an all-Mexican team, the mezcal brand launched last spring, sourcing Espadín and Tobalá agaves from San Juan del Río. And because I’m a sucker for great packaging, I was psyched to hear about its whimsical holiday gift–box offering. It’s covered in traditional illustrations by Miguel Cardenas, and unfolding the booklike box takes you right back to childhood. Plus for anyone like me, who orders margaritas year-round, the smokier mezcal spirit hits just right for cozy winter nights. —Julia Stevens, associate style editor
Monster Mashup: Hem x Siri Carlén
Spooky season isn’t over yet (or ever). Hem just launched a new line of Monster rugs, which boasts artist and illustrator Siri Carlén’s playful reimaginations of animals’ spots and stripes, originally scribbled in pastel crayons. The four styles have a soft wool pile that’s ultra-shaggy, making you want to revert to childhood and hang out right on the floor. And in shades of mint, cobalt, indigo, and cream, they’ll still fit in once the Halloween candy has run out. —Lindsey Mather, editorial director, home
Fresh Canvas: Guy Yanai’s “The Things of Life”
If I could live, dress, and style my home like a 1970s French New Wave film, I definitely would. The vibes always inspire me, especially when interpreted by my friend Guy Yanai at his new painting show, “The Things of Life” (now on view at Miles McEnery in New York City). Yanai was inspired by director Claude Sautet’s movie of the same name and even completed some of his canvases at Sautet’s studio in Marseille, France, embracing just the kind of palette I love: fresh, bright, and layered. If you can’t get to the show in person (it’s up until November 27), order the catalog featuring an essay by Terence Trouillot. —Jessica Romm Perez, editor at large
Top Shelf: That Sounds So Good by Carla Lalli Music
Every time I buy a new cookbook, I leaf through it and mark the recipes I want to make. When I brought home former Bon Appétit editor Carla Lalli Music’s That Sounds So Good, I had put little stickies on so many pages that it would have been easier to not have done it at all. The Extremely Green Grain Salad is my new lunch go-to, and I can’t wait to try her Pasta with Cacio e Walnuts this weekend. —Julie Vadnal, deputy editor
Wave Rider: Rowley x Roxy
I’m constantly fascinated by snowboarding and surf culture. The laid-back style, the cool-kid persona—I love everything about it. So imagine my joy when it was announced that fashion icon Cynthia Rowley was collaborating with Roxy. Patchwork swimsuits alongside floral puffer jackets offer a wallet-friendly way to bring Rowley’s designs to your closet. Even Olympic gold medalist (and my personal icon) Chloe Kim is a lover of the Cold Sunday jacket. —Kate McGregor, associate design editor
