The rubber sole is sporty and offers comfort, making these some of the most versatile shoes in your collection.
Designed by Sabina Gibson, this peach-colored Stegosaurus is much smaller, cuter and cuddlier than the real thing. Made for kids aged three and up, the jurassic creature has a wool felt body and polyester filling—so s/he is snuggly. Available on its own, or as a set of four (along with a Tyrannosaurus Rex, Brachiosaurus and Triceratops) this little pal will encourage tots to use their imagination and maybe even learn about the prehistorical world.
VOGUE's "Voice of a Century" is a 448-page anthology for serious fashion experts and collectors. The leather-bound tome has been made to celebrate the 100-year anniversary of the magazine, and includes iconic photographs, illustrations and interviews—from Kate Moss talking about riding an elephant to gloriously illustrated covers from yesteryear. Signed by eight contributors and stamped by Mario Testino, this book tracks not only style and fashion, but trends and history through a very specific and significant lens.
As those in the Northern Hemisphere start thinking about sweater weather, long-lost items like scarves and beanies start being remembered. Maison Kitsuné's simple ribbed beanie (available in burgundy or navy) is one way to enjoy winter a little more. Made from 100% lambswool, the beanie is unisex (of course) and very warm. The brand's trademark fox (Kitsuné comes from the Japanese word "kitsune" meaning "fox") is embroidered to the front in the French flag's blue, white and red. Price is in Euros.
Toilet Paper Magazine, Daft Punk and The Vinyl Factory have come together for a highly covetable collectible. Made in an edition of 1000, the French duo's 1995 tracks "Da Funk" and "Teachers" (both from the iconic Homework album) have been rerecorded onto a gold record, embellished with trademark Toilet Paper-style art by Maurizio Cattelan and Pierpaolo Ferrari. Price is in Euros.
Inspired by the dovecotes of India's Mughal architecture, this geometric rug is one of five just launched from Block Shop. The bold structure of the pattern is offset somewhat by the subtle gray and cream coloration, making it a piece that will standout all while matching almost any style of interior. In fact, the team at Block Shop designed it for their very own cabin in Joshua Tree, a bird-watching haven. Dyed and woven by hand, this piece is made of 100% Indian cotton and available in three different sizes.
As with so many of The Arrivals' pieces, the unisex Han bomber jacket carries super-functionality. Padded with real European goose down and sporting a wind-protecting zipper placket, it will keep wearers warm in the colder months. The minimal look is jazzed up by our favorite colorway—one the brand calls "Bandaid"—a dusty rose hue that will lighten a gloomy winter day. Also available in black or fir (a rich olive green), the Han jacket is comfy and cozy.
Writer Kate Schatz and artist Miriam Klein Stahl (who created the New York Times bestseller "Rad American Women A-Z") have come together again for another feminist-leaning tome: "Rad Women Worldwide: Artists and Athletes, Pirates and Punks, and Other Revolutionaries Who Shaped History." Featuring cut-out portraits and short profiles on everybody from Poly Styrene (lead singer of X-Ray Spex) to Malala Yousafzi and Chimamanda Adichie, the book will inspire and impress readers of all ages, races and genders.
Designed by Swiss-Argentinian Alfredo Häberli and made from gorgeous green glass specially developed by Georg Jensen and the Glafo Glass Research Institute, the Alfredo Vase is the result of many visionaries coming together. Looking like something from the past and the future at the same time, its curves are exaggerated and delightful. The vessel (available in two very different shapes and sizes) is such a pretty piece, you might not even bother putting flowers in it.
Whether using it for a picnic, weekend away or to lug your groceries around town, Topo Designs and Woolrich's collaboration Cinch Tote is super-functional and its USA woolen fabrics means it's great for transitional seasons.

One of our favorite online destinations for sophisticated tokers, Tetra has just released their first self-branded pipe. Created by NYC-based designer Jamie Wolfond, the blue glass pipe is made from incredibly high-quality borosilicate glass that doesn't conduct heat—meaning the smoke produced is cooler and smoother. Also available in clear, the beautifully designed piece is clever and classy.
We're already enamored by Hautlence's non-watch watch—a piece that isn't what it first appears. Instead of telling the time, the puzzle-face encourages the wearer to slow down, take some time out and embrace their inner-child. The limited edition version, made in collaboration with Colette, is black and blue (like the Parisian store) but has been produced in a super-exclusive run of just five. Price is in Euros.
The tender portraits taken by photographer, casting director and creative director Kevin Amato—for his new book "The Importants"—honor the characters (mostly from the Bronx) he's dedicated to capturing on film. Amato is a pioneer of the now-common concept of street-casting, and the images in the gold hardcover range from the recognizable Luka Sabbat to emerging and unknown names. Essentially though, it's a celebration of diversity and fluidity—from sexuality to gender, appearance and race.
Designed by Italian architect Paola Navone and produced by acclaimed porcelain company Reichenbach, this polka-dot creamer—part of a great black dots set—balances whimsy with function. This can be said of both the uncommon silhouette and the playful pattern. Global interests struck the Navone, which she channeled into her progressive, worldly work. The piece is exclusively stocked at the Philip Johnson Glass House design store.
Despite all evidence that aluminum and paraben aren't things that should be applied to the body every single day, most people do default to deodorant sticks featuring these ingredients—because they generally offer the most antiperspirant protection. After extending testing, we can testify that Journeymen's Fragrance No 1 deodorant stick does offer the same antiperspirant protection most require out of a daily deodorant—and the cypress and cedar smoke scent lasts well into the work day. There's an almost warming sensation when applying it. And the aloe vera, witch hazel, organic chamomile and essential oils make the experience altogether delightful.
