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.
Stylish Sip: Something & Nothing Seltzer
I was immediately taken with this seltzer’s chic packaging and name from the moment I saw it at Andrea Westerlind’s amazing shop in Millerton, New York. It could have tasted like absolute garbage, but the design is so appealing, and it has the right balance of bubbles and botanical notes—not too sweet or overwhelming. My favorite is the hibiscus + rose, but the yuzu and cucumber are also great. I can’t wait for the company to introduce other clean flavors. I’ve already stocked my fridge with these beauties to add a little extra sparkle to holiday spritzes. See ya later, Spindrift. —Jessica Romm Perez, editor in chief
Cool Collab: Summerill & Bishop x MatchesFashion.com
I’m so drawn to marbleized textiles and the mesmerizing technique, so when I saw that MatchesFashion.com and Summerill & Bishop (aka a British match made in heaven) dropped a marble-themed collaboration, I had to explore it. Offerings include a tablecloth available in three sizes and napkins sold individually, all in an extra-luxe 100 percent linen fabric. The spooky-chic campaign was shot at the Leighton House Museum in London, previously the home of 17th-century Victorian artist Frederic Leighton. I love how the collection mimics Matches’s signature packaging. (Fun fact: The boxes were designed by Irving & Co. and artist Ann Muir.) Prepping for the first post-pandemic dinner party starts now! —Julia Stevens, associate style editor
To Dye For: Abacaxi Boutique
As we rapidly approach the finale of a year like no other, all I want to do is mindfully treat myself. A photographer friend tipped me off about Abacaxi Boutique, a studio that creates consciously made clothing inspired by travel, vibrant hues, and the infinite beauty of nature—and who doesn’t need those vibes right now?. I have my eye on its new winter tie-dyed collection, especially those joggers, one of which might match the tie-dyed mask I made mid-quarantine. In case you’re not in a mood to DIY, every clothing purchase comes with a free face mask. —Andie Diemer, deputy photo editor
Must Stream: Luxor
I’m obsessed with seeing this Sundance hit, starring the perfect dusty palette (think: Lost in Translation) and featuring a dreamlike narrative (first loves serendipitously recross paths against the ancient backdrop of Luxor) from director Zeina Durra. Until I can travel again, this film is my ticket to Egypt. My great-grandfather spent time there as an archaeologist, so watching the trailer made me want to go even more. —Alex Redgrave, editorial director, Domino Kids
Like and Favorite: Leanne Ford’s Kitchen
I love open shelving just as much as the next girl, but sometimes you just need to put things away and pull the curtain, as in Leanne Ford’s kitchen. Enter our local Pittsburgh friend Gregory Andrew Powell to save the day! At Domino’s Ford cover shoot, he found old brackets around the cottage and constructed cabinet curtains out of my Heather Taylor Home tablecloth (and salvaged enough for a table runner!). —Kate Berry, executive creative director
