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.

Mix It Up: The River Cafe Look Book

Since I’m the art director at Domino, food and design are naturally part of the conversation with my family. Which is why The River Cafe Look Book, made for children, belongs on our shelf. I love that it challenges the typical hokey kids’ cookbooks with photography and recipes that are sophisticated and actually appetizing for adults. I mean, who wouldn’t want to eat casarecce with pesto for dinner, especially when your 8-year-old son made it with love? —Kim Gray, art director 

Between the Sheets: Tekla x Jacquemus

The fashion kids were aflutter when Jacquemus and Nike announced a collaboration over the summer, but it’s the French brand’s partnership with Tekla fabrics that has us swooning over here in the land of interior design. The two come together in a collection of subtle stripes and a soothing color palette on playful pieces like strapless sleepwear influenced by men’s boxers, fluffy towels big enough for two, and cozy percale sheets. Sure, an It bag is cool, but being wrapped up in an oversize shirt-inspired robe underneath the comfort of a linen bedspread is always en vogue to me. —Raven McMillan, assistant editor


Fresh Batch: Fefo Studio’s Textile Collection

Fefo Studio’s new cotton textile collection arrives just in time to complete a holiday table (or to cross that food-loving host extraordinaire off your shopping list). I plan to wrap my freshly baked brioche in the mustard and rose-dipped bread towels. It’s hard to believe these saturated, color-blocked dyes are achieved with edible ingredients like pomegranate skins, tamarind, and dates. —Morgan Bulman, associate commerce editor

Mirror Mirror (Leaning) on the Wall: Emma Scully Gallery at Design Miami

When gallerist Emma Scully asked New York–based ceramist Simone Bodmer-Turner to go big for her Design Miami booth, Bodmer-Turner did just that with a sculptural plaster mirror—her largest freestanding piece to date. The extra-large entryway staple is a fitting addition to the show, which is dubbed “Reflecting Women” and will also present works by Bec Brittain, Rooms Studio, Jane Atfield, Ibiyanε, Jaye Kim, Nel Verbeke, Kaja Upelj, and Jenny Min, through December 4.  —Lydia Geisel, home editor 

Fresh Prints: William Eggleston at David Zwirner Gallery

I heart New York for many reasons, but mainly because of Chelsea’s gallery scene, where you can open a door to view a remarkable collection of photographs by William Eggleston on your way to dinner. His latest exhibition at David Zwirner Gallery, “The Outlands,” coincides with the release of his book (which I regret not leaving with). What I loved most about the raw, saturated images (many of which had never been seen publicly) was the scale—large enough to make it feel as though the scenes were right in front of you. You still have time to catch the show before it closes on December 17. —Julia Stevens, style editor

Stop and Shop: Paloma Wool’s NYC Pop-Up

I remember going to Paloma Wool’s last New York pop-up, and let’s just say my closet scored big-time. As someone who prefers in-person shopping, I’ll definitely be making my way back to SoHo for its new pop-up to shop for more from the Barcelona-based fashion brand; it’s open December 1 to 22. Spoiler alert: I’m probably leaving with one of the oversize puffer jackets. —Belle Morizio, photographer and assistant photo editor


Treasure Chest: Ariel Gordon Jewelry Box

If you were to see my “jewelry box” (which is just a few plastic trays on my dresser) right now, you might be mildly horrified. It could definitely use some work, and lucky for me, Northern California–based jewelry designer Ariel Gordon created a solution. The designer just released a beautiful scalloped velvet jewelry box, 10 years in the making, that is just as functional as it is pretty—and definitely worth the investment. Equipped with two layers of organization for necklaces, rings, and earrings, the eye-catching piece could (and should!) easily rest on your dresser in plain sight. —Angela Tafoya, editorial director, branded + talent

French Class: An American in Provence

All it took was one very scary, turbulent flight for photographer and writer Jamie Beck to realize what she really wanted: to live in France. But unlike the rest of us, she actually did it and took pictures along the way as she settled in a tiny village in Provence. Now you can follow along on her journey with her new book, An American in Provence, which is filled with wistful images and stories that make you wonder, “Why don’t I live in France, too?” —Julie Vadnal, deputy editor
