The New Press
The Kids: The Children of LGBTQ Parents in the USA
$14

Made up of 50+ portraits of children (young and old) brought up by LGBTQ parents in the United States, "The Kids" is a beautiful exploration of humans and love. Photographed by Gabriela Herman, each of the people profiled thoughtfully describe their experience with their parents. These personal stories touch upon the serious, the humorous and everything between. The through-line is that every story is their own—and not that of a politician or author without personal experience. Each photo is tender and, like the people in the book, entirely unique.

KOIO + Ben Medansky

Le Chameau
Condor LCX Hunting Boots
$400

From the oiled nubuck leather to the proprietary, deep-grip rubber sole by Michelin, Le Chameau's durable boots have been made by hand.

With a complex layering system, they also tackle very cold temperatures, especially in active use scenarios.

Coach House Books
My Ariel
$13

Sylvia Plath's second book of poetry "Ariel" (famously edited and rearranged by her husband Ted Hughes) was published two years after her death. In "My Ariel," Canadian writer Sina Queyras explores and reworks Plath's poems with unabashed humor and dynamism. Backed up by plenty of research on Plath and her texts, the contemporary poems pay homage but are truly the works of Queyras.

Brainfeeder
"Drank" Chopped Album
$27

As a limited edition release, Thundercat's inimitable 2017 album Drunk has been "chopped not slopped" by DJ Candlestick and OG Ron C of Houston-based DJ outfit The Chopstars. On special purple vinyl, with inner sleeve artwork by Zack Fox, this record is languid and expertly chopped in a manner that's mellow and smooth.

Oakley
Line Miner XM Harmony Fade Goggles
$160

Made with Oakley’s latest Prizm lens, the Line Miner XM Harmony Fade goggles enhance cyan and red to help best distinguish snow contrast in a stark landscape of white. The goggle shape has classic stylings, but features excellent peripheral vision with a cylindrical design that keeps the shield close to your face. The Harmony Fade collection is currently being seen on the US ski and snowboard team for the 2018 Winter Olympics and is also available in sunglasses and other goggle shapes.

This all-natural, classically-inspired paste makes for a seasoning or sauce unlike any other. It's rich and delectable, incorporating numerous traditional Oaxacan flavors into what became one of Mexico's first global food innovations.

The Outrage
"Believe Women" Postcard
$3

Simple design and an even more simple message: The Outrage's "Believe Women" postcards can't be clearer. Measuring 5.83 by 4.13 inches, these matte postcards are especially useful for writing to your reps. NARAL Pro-Choice America—an organization that fights for the reproductive freedom for everybody in every state—will receive 100% of the profits.

Susanne Kaufmann
Flight Kit
$80

Travel not only disrupts skincare routines but dries out flesh and eyes along the way. Austria-based Susanne Kaufman's flight kit aims to combat this, with six items oriented at moisturizing and replenishing. From a spray and mask to lip balm and a skin smoothing concentrate, everything is travel-safe and includes Kaufman's signature, acclaimed proprietary formulas. Price is in Euros.

adidas Originals
Archive CM1 Watch
$160

One of four heritage-inspired timepiece collection from adidas Originals, the Archive watch line embraces the digital time-telling pieces of the '70s. That said, there's a modern roundedness to the wristwatch, including the sculpted buttons (inspired by iconic footwear design) and the clean, readable surface. Further, there's a dash of extra-utility, with both a chronograph function and second time-zone. It comes in four colorways, including this all-black model.

ALC
"The Woman" T-Shirt
$98

Made to celebrate International Women's Day, this slightly slim fit ALC T-shirt is made for all genders. The boxy white top comes in extra-small through large sizes and features a handwritten-style font.

Beau Brummell

$28

For a thorough and thoroughly refreshing exfoliation experience, NY-based Beau Brummell's Walnut Hand + Foot Scrub delivers. Using pulverized walnut shell, pumice, oat flour and a variety of natural oil, the grainy powder removes dead skin and cleanses. It's rough, but after months of testing we can attest to its ability to clean and enliven.

Duckworth
Men's Powder Hoody
$140

With a tough wool outer matrix, Duckworth's pullover delivers surprising warmth and durability. Produced from Montana-grown merino wool, the hoodie—called the Powder Hoody—offers plenty of insulation (and wicking) for challenging outdoor temperatures. Its soft brushed inside enhances comfort, as well.

Roland + Karimoku
Roland Kiyola Piano
$4,300

Equal parts luxuriant oak furniture and technically-advanced musical keyboard, the Roland Kiyola Piano is a MoMA Design Store exclusive. Handcrafted in Japan by furniture-maker Karimoku, the minimalist instrument features unique grain patterns, with 88 keys crafted from a wood and plastic hybrid structure. In contrast to most other digital pianos (which employ sampling/pre-recorded sounds from other pianos), this particular machine employs Roland's heartier piano modeling, lending a fullness reminiscent of an acoustic piano.

Sans [ceuticals]
Activator 7 Oil
$43

Free from harmful additives, Sans Ceuticals' products are small-batches from 100% naturally derived ingredients. Their three-in-one Activator 7 Oil is incredibly nourishing and can be used on the face, hair and body to stimulate cell repair and increase collagen production. With plenty of vitamin A, it helps to correct damaged skin thanks to anti-oxidants. Importantly, the ingredients are 100% biodegradable, the packaging is 100% recyclable and all ink used is made from vegetables—so it's not just good for you, but also the environment.

Leatherman
Wave+ Tool
$100

17 tools in one, Leatherman's Wave has been one of the most popular multi-tools ever released—with 10 million being sold since its launch in 1998. Now, they've unleashed an upgrade, the Wave+ and it's updated with a set of removable and replaceable 154cm wire-cutters; a user request. As with the previous model, all tools can be opened and locked with just one hand. From blades to rulers, uses here are endless.

Naked + Thriving
Rejuvenate Restorative Facial Oil
$72

Argan oil, chia seed, and rosehip oil are only some of the featured botanical ingredients in Naked + Thriving's rejuvenate facial product. Application of this gentle, 95% organic oil feels both light and nourishing. Active hydrating components do everything from hinder premature aging to enhance glow and reduce fine lines. It's delicate enough for daily use, even on naturally oily skin.

CONTEXT
Keratin Recovery Treatment
$35

Free of all kinds of harmful ingredients like alcohol, parabens, sulfate, pthalate, and sodium chloride, CONTEXT's recovery treatment is full of organic proteins that protect and hydrate hair. Not only focusing on tresses, this product also nourishes the scalp—thanks to chamomilla, sage leaf and calendula extracts. Plus, white oak bark extract works as an anti-inflammatory and anti-irritant, which is especially helpful in the colder, dryer months.

Aesop
Rejuvenate Intensive Body Balm
$35

Intensely rich and thick, Aesop's Rejuvenate Intensive Body Balm is made for parched skin. An application leaves skin feeling soft and supple, and ultimately nourished thanks to macadamia and sandalwood oils. The fragrance blends citrus and vanilla for a slightly creamsicle-like scent.

The North Face
Patrol Gloves
$160

Made for the coldest and wettest climates, The North Face's high-tech Patrol Gloves offer protective comfort. Whether skiing, snowboarding or exploring Antarctica, these technical accessories preserve dry coziness, while guaranteeing plenty of dexterity.
