My Favorite Things

When shopping for summer staples, Maria Dueñas Jacobs asks herself three questions before checking out: “Is it easy? Is it comfortable? Is it chic?” Her process and criteria were mastered during a career as a magazine fashion editor, most recently serving as Elle’s accessories director. But those questions have become even more valuable these days as founder of the children’s brand Super Smalls, which specializes in—and, quite frankly, nails—sparkly, joyful gifts and accessories. Dueñas Jacobs, who likes to combine her love for all things “fun and kid-centric” with refined, ornate objects, says she derives the greatest inspiration from her three young daughters. Herewith, the entrepreneur shines a light on “my list as I gear up for the season!”

“Everything I’ve ever bought from Khaite has been amortized by wears quite nicely, and becomes a staple in my wardrobe. I think this dress will be super wearable and versatile this summer!”

The Expression Bordeaux Glass, Two Pack

“I’m not a total wine pro, but I know enough to know that wine tastes better in these glasses.”

Maison Me

$37

Malia One-Piece Swimsuit

Super Smalls

$29

Mermaid in Training Goggles

“These goggles are straight-up magic! They have an airtight seal and may or may not turn your kid into a mermaid!”

Polaroid

$109

i-Type Instant Camera

“I’m a sucker for all things nostalgic, and who doesn’t love a Polaroid? I bought these for my girls and keep them at home to document summer fun. We put the photos in a box, and it’s always a treat to look back on the silly things we’ve snapped.”

Kule

$188

The All-Over Striped Tote

“The beach bag dreams are made of and also a go-to gift from me!”

Marni

$490

Knit Printed Buckle Slides

“I’m basically a grown-up kid and a sucker for any shoe that resembles a Birk’. These Marni sandals make me laugh out loud so, naturally, I love them!”

Foundrae

Super Smalls

Lucky Streak Real 4-Leaf Clover Necklace

“I designed and made this for kids, but I wear it every day. I’m still blown away by the fact that it has a real four-leaf clover in it! Apparently, Leprechauns love Super Smalls, so I was able to broker a deal.”

My Favorite Things

Anyone with more than a passing interest in interior design on social media is likely already familiar with Colin King’s styling oeuvre. Part of that success comes from his ability to imbue spaces with difficult-to-pinpoint dynamism—even when working in his preferred muted palette and without human subjects. This talent has led him to regularly contribute to publications such as Architectural Digest and T and collaborates with brands ranging from West Elm to Roman and Williams Guild. It’s only natural, then, that he’s just launched his own collection, inspired by Milan and Marrakech, with Beni Rugs. Herewith, King shares his favorite items for both home and body

Jacques Adnet

$7,976

1950s Stitched-Leather Table

“I love the variation in texture across this piece, combining patinated leather, a rattan tabletop, and metalwork details. Adnet’s work complements so many different styles—you can’t go wrong.”

Menu

$740

Reverse Table Tamp

“This is a true study in materiality. The travertine base is handsomely paired with a brushed-bronze aluminum shade. However, my favorite feature is the tactile dimmer switch at the top of the fixture. I’ve used this lamp in so many different areas of my own home over the years.”

D.S & Durga

From $175.00

Cowboy Grass Eau de Parfum

“D.S. & Durga has a catalog of such well-defined scents. This fragrance uses some of my favorite notes in a really distinctive way. Herbal, dry, and green—this takes my mind straight to the natural beauty of the desert out West.”

Beni Rugs

$665

Ancora

“Ancora is one of my favorite new rug designs from Spoken Lines, my second collection with Beni Rugs. Overall, it’s inspired by the convergence of the craftsmanship of Marrakech with the architectural influence of Milan and mid-century Italian design.”

Paul Klee

$56

Paul Klee 1939

“This book of Paul Klee’s work adds a whimsical, eye-catching layer to any table or surface. I’ve always been drawn to his ability to utilize spatial relationships and graphic elements with such a lighthearted hand.”

Loewe

$1,250

Striped Mohair-Blend Blanket

“This blanket makes me want to curl up and binge-watch a new show. With a range of neutrals in a mohair-blend pattern, it’s a great finishing touch to a comfy sofa or lounge chair.”

Bode

$473

Killington Striped Shorts

“Bode continues to cement such a distinctive perspective in menswear. There is an inherent respect for unusual textiles and patterns without forgoing a bit of wit. Combined with the collaborative design work of Green River Project, I’m always intrigued to see where the line heads next.”

Le 17 Septembre

$350

Layered Faille Shirt

“The subtle layers of this shirt add just enough personality and interest without going over the top. I’m often switching out and pairing neutrals across my wardrobe, so I usually look for special, distinctive details like this design.”

Roman & Williams Guild

$112

Linen Napkins, Set of Four

“No one has approached the tabletop category like Roman & Williams Guild. I’ve frequently collaborated with their team and I always find myself coming back to these linen napkins. There’s a detailed simplicity to the light handfeel and frayed edges that adds so much character to a tablescape.”

Frama

$1,055

Aluminum Rivet Box Table

“There’s an industrial elegance to the Rivet Box Table by Frama. The untreated aluminum adds a Donald Judd-esque perspective to the design and it can easily be used as a storage or display, vertically or horizontally. The material continues to develop a beautiful patina over time.”

Smythson

$190

Passport Cover in Panama

“I’ve been lucky enough to travel more and more for work these days. This crossgrain leather passport cover from Smythson has become a travel staple and continues to wear well as I step foot into different countries. Hoping to make some time to travel for pleasure someday soon!”

Flexfit

$12

Athletic Baseball Cap

“Everyone always asks where I get my baseball caps. My secret is this Flexfit cap from Amazon. They have some great colorways and this is my go-to hat to throw on while traveling or after a long day on set.”

My Favorite Things

With her elegant mien, bold style, and recognizable platinum bob, Linda Fargo has reigned as a paragon of the New York fashion world for decades. Her established tenure as S.V.P. and director of women’s fashion at Bergdorf Goodman showcases her inimitable knack for eyeing faraway trends and, in an impressive number of cases, setting them. Not surprisingly, the Midwestern native—who, as the spirit and muse of the Bergdorf brand, now has her own shop within, “which is like my fantasy closet of all my current season favorites”—also has peerless shopping insights. Herewith, Fargo shines a light on the top 12 pieces that have won her attention this summer.

Respoke

$297

Ampara Floral-Print Espadrilles

“​​What to do when you have an obsessive collection of iconic Hermès and Pucci scarves, and you’ve run out of ways to tie them? Make them into one-of-a-kind, handmade espadrilles and let your feet have all the stylish fun. Now that’s a re-purpose with a purpose I like!”

La DoubleJ

$420

Hazzard Tie-Shoulder Swimsuit

“Anyone who has the pleasure of meeting the ultra charming J.J. Martin falls under her colorful and playful spell. I’ve seen her grow this brand from a few floral frocks shown in her friend’s Milan flower shop to an entire “World of J.J.”—from beach to tablescapes to innerlife dressing, too. The places this fiesta one-piece and I could go together? Borderless anywhere!”

1st Dibs

$5,176

Midcentury Rattan Wicker Bar Cart

“Don’t know why, but I’m loco for rattan! My dream house is a tiki hut or a stilted-bamboo apartment in Bali’s Bamboo Village. Short of that, I’ll roll out this whimsical bar cart and knock you out poolside with my Planters Double Punch!”

Balenciaga

$5,950

Pleated-Drape Crepe Midi Dress

“I mean! Have you ever seen a dress that can instantly transform you into the Goddess of Sunshine like this radiant, packable, plisse beauty from Balenciaga. Thanks, Demna Gvasalia!”

The Kit

“And thank you, Joanna! We all want a piece of you! Our skin is thirsty for your years of expertise, and at last we have you in chic handy little bottles. The wait is over—#quenched.”

Khaite

$1,520

Evi Stripe Collared Sweater

“If you’re not hip to Khaite’s sweaters with the hand-hider sleeves, the sumptuous and gorgeous yarns, sailor-chic stripes, and casually sexy necklines, then get with it!”

Dries Van Noten

$1,765

Firework-Print Belted Coat

Oooh, aaaah! Nothing says summer or celebration—or whatever, whenever—like this fantastical sparkler from our favorite mix-master, Dries. Will someone kiss me under the falling stars in this?”

Spinelli Kilcollin

$1,700

Hyancinth MX-4 Link Ring

“Classics aren’t born everyday, but behold! I can’t think of someone who wouldn’t rock and love one the many variations on this versatile Eighth Wonder of the World. Think: one for me and one for you.”

Loewe x Paula’s Ibiza

$990

Small Elephant Anagram Basket Tote

“O.K., O.K.! Nothing says summer like a raffia tote bag, but add jazzy T-shirt stripes and a why-not elephant, and your day just has to be more fun. Leave it to Loewe—and all their artisanal collabs—to dream this one up.”

Moke

$21,975

eMoke

“If a car were fashion, this would be my summer pick. It’s cute. I only need it for the season. It starts conversations. I’ll change into something else in the Fall!”

Hermes

$43

Lipstick

“While these jaunty lipsticks may transform your lips into hypnotizing colors, the enameled, striped cases with snappy magnetic closures are art-object worthy. Sights for sore eyes!”

Fornasetti

$1,285

Face-Stripes Tray

“My lean is always a classic or legacy something-or-other with a fresh spin. This summery tray checks my personal boxes. Great gift or keepable.”

My Favorite Things

When J.J. Martin, the founder of lifestyle brand La DoubleJ, moved from her native California to Milan more than 20 years ago, she brought with her both a sense of spirituality and a maximalist aesthetic. Ultimately those would both come to define the company that she later launched, in 2015, with the goal of encouraging “women to seek joy both inside and out.” In so doing, she relied on her curatorial eye and long-standing friendships with Milan’s leading creative minds, establishing immersive retail experiences and novel collaborations. Many of Martin’s devotees also borrow from her roadmap on how to live fully through spiritual practice. Herewith, the incurable optimist and tastemaker highlights her picks of the moment.

La DoubleJ

$1,250

Boudoir Belted Maxi Dress

“This is the kind of thing I fantasize myself floating around my Milan apartment in, but really I’ll probably wear it to Passalacqua, which is a new 25 room villa in Lake Como that you must all visit— we designed the pool and solarium areas in a La DoubleJ print explosion, so this feels pretty appropriate.”

Smythson

$40

Bulldog-Motif Correspondence Cards

“So I couldn’t find pug paper in honor of my dog, Pepper, but this bulldog is a very close second. We love scrunched up faces of all kinds!”

Fiat

Price Upon Request

1958 Jolly 750 Abarth

“I drive a vintage fiat Cinquecento in Milan, but the convertible rattan version takes it to a totally new level. I actually have a friend who lives in Puglia with this exact car and there is no better way to experience the Italian summer coastline. It’s the dream!”

La DoubleJ

$555

Gold-Plated Porcelain Espresso Cups and Saucers, Set of Six

“You can’t go wrong with these La DoubleJ porcelain espresso cups. Trust me—everyone likes them. Perfect summer time hostess gift!”

Michael Kneebone

$4,800

Labradorite Archaic-Style Ring

“Labradorite is a very special stone that has incredibly strong energetic properties. In a nutshell, it helps you embody your spirit inside your physical shell. I have been wearing one around my neck daily for the last three years. So when I saw this big-daddy ring, my stomach did a few backflips.”

La DoubleJ

$420

Scarlett Swimsuit

“I’m a big fan of the bathing suit doing double duty as ready-to-wear—i.e., put that baby on with a pair of hot pants or a swinging skirt and you are cocktail ready! This one is in an amazing stretch pique that I love.”

Charles Horner Scarab

$650

Art Deco Brooch, Circa 1920

“I’m nuts about Egypt, and after spending two weeks there in April, my meditation room is now packed with statues of Isis, Anubis, scarabs, ankhs, etc. Oftentimes, I will buy items that are meant to be worn as jewelry but that I place on my altar next to crystals instead. That’s what I’ll do with this scarab. Love the design.”

Alana Fairchild

$16

Angelic Lightwork: Magic and Manifestation with the Angels

“I have many spiritual books and oracle cards—I like the Isis Oracle pack!—by Alana Fairchild. Here’s one I haven’t read yet but want to buy.”

Westman Atelier

$62

Eye Love You Mascara

“I’m not much of a makeup wearer to be honest, but when I do wear it, I like Gucci Westman’s products. Not only are they fabulous on the skin, but the design is chicisimo and Gucci is the nicest, coolest woman in the beauty business, so let’s support her!”

My Favorite Things

It would not be hyperbolic to say that serial entrepreneur Maneesh Goyal has a prescient sense for hospitality trends in the world’s most competitive markets. As the founder and CEO of Pineapple Co., Goyal, the son of Indian immigrants, oversaw the opening of New York’s highly rated Sona restaurant, followed by the relaunch of Temple Bar, a beloved watering hole for the city’s brightest lights. The popularity of these establishments no doubt owes something to the angel investor’s prior tenure running one of the world’s leading creative agencies, MKG. Herewith, Goyal—who’s preparing to launch a Sona-inspired tabletop line with his friend, actress Priyanka Chopra Jonas—reveals his high and low must-haves.

Marni

$1,550

Check Trench Coat

Ami

“The best candle out there. It’s smoky and sultry.”

Qing Yi

$80

Portable Balloon Pump

“I needed a party trick, so I taught myself how to make balloon animals. This is not a joke.”

My Favorite Things

Why should only adults get to wear clothes that adequately reflect their complex inner-selves? It’s a conundrum that Swedish illustrator Cassandra Rhodin set out to solve, in 2006, when she launched the childrenswear brand Mini Rodini. Leveraging her celebrated, whimsical artwork, Rhodin created a line of high-quality clothing and accessories that’s playful yet sophisticated—as well as rooted in sustainability. It’s a brand that both parents and kids can easily get behind. As its creative director, Rhodin designs, hand prints, photographs, and art-directs every season’s campaign. Herewith, she spotlights what she’s loving right now.

Diptyque

$70

Roses Candle

“This candle scent reminds me of my childhood summer at Fårö—also known as the home of Ingmar Bergman—where we had a wild climbing-rose bush outside our stone family home.”

Upsala Ekeby

$2,686

Vase by Anna-Lisa Thomson

“I’ve been collecting Ekeby vases for years. They’re produced in Sweden and I love the way everything Anna-Lisa Thomson designs is inspired by nature.”

Fujifilm

$1,800

X-T3 Digital Camera

“I never travel without this in my bag, as I’m always capturing life through its lens and, technically, it’s just a really great camera.”

Argiolas Tremontis

$34

Mirto Liqueur

“This liqueur is a traditional drink in Sardinia originating from the myrtle plant. It’s not easy to find, but whenever I come across it I always buy a bottle.”

Hermès

$69

Rosy Lip Enhancer

“I love this shade of Hermès lipstick, especially for everyday use at the office. The formula is nourishing and hydrating.”

Yotam Ottolenghi

$33

Square-Frame Sunglasses

“Yet another classic travel staple I never leave home without.”

Zafferus

$22

“This is an absolute staple in most Swedish kitchens, especially during December for the feast of St. Lucia, when we bake traditional pastries like Lussekatter and saffron buns.”

My Favorite Things

Though Taylor Tomasi Hill attracted great attention in the aughts as a street-style pioneer, she kept her focus squarely on behind-the-scenes contributions to the world of fashion media. After a decade working as a top editor for publications including Teen Vogue and Marie Claire, Tomasi Hill became increasingly interested in the business side of the retail industry. This shift led her to assume the creative helm at brands Moda Operandi, then Forty Five Ten, and most recently, in 2018, cutting-edge A.I. shopping platform THE YES, where her “Yes List” is a perennial favorite. Herewith, the Dallas native and mother of one reveals her leading recommendations for right now

Kule

$228

The Tommi Cardigan

“Cardi in the summer? Absolutely! I keep a Kule cardi with me year-round, whether it’s to ward off Texas’s aggressive A.C. or an unusually cool evening.”

Khaite

The June Tote

“I don’t splurge on new bags too often—I’m much more of a shoe girl—but this raffia tote is an instant upgrade to make every look a little more summery.”

Joanna Czech

$1,320

The Kit

“Joanna is my skin’s fairy godmother, but getting an appointment with her is tricky these days because she’s in such high demand. Luckily, her full regimen, suitable for nearly every skin type, brings a dose of her magic to you.”

Bottega Veneta

$1,550

Arco Bag

“When it comes to summer accessories, I’ve been loving rubber! It’s playful and practically indestructible, so even in white, this tote can withstand a day at the beach.”

Rosie Assoulin

$2,995

Flower Crown Gown

“This lighthearted gown is perfect for a summer wedding or a friend’s backyard cocktail, where you can go barefoot! I love the sportiness of the stripes against a super-feminine ruffle.”

Dodo Banana

$55

Printed Pajama Set

“My little one loves bananas. Like, everything and anything banana print. We even had a banana-themed birthday party for him one year. These cute printed PJs make our bath time-bedtime routine a little easier.”

Lisa Corti

$195

Nizam Quilted-Cotton Throw

“Handmade in India, this stripe-and-floral throw is perfect for brightening a neutral sofa, but not so precious that it can’t be repurposed as a tent for movie night, superhero cape, or picnic blanket.”

Brightland

$38

100% Extra Virgin Olive Oil

“I pretty much thought all E.V.O.O. was created equal, until I tried Brightland. Sustainably produced in California using heirloom olives, it comes in a bottle that keeps it fresh by protecting it from damaging U.V. rays. Their Champagne Vinegar on hummus is also not to be missed!”

Marie Sharp’s

$17

Habanero Hot Sauce

“Obsessed. In fact, that does even begin to describe my relationship with Marie Sharp’s Hot Sauce. I discovered it in Belize and was shipping it back by the case before it was more readily available in the U.S. If you know me well, you’ve definitely been given a bottle.”

Epic Western

$18

Ranch Water, Pack of Four

“Ranch ​w​ate​r—​in a can?​!​ Before you kick me out of Texas for good, hear me out. Epic Western Ranch Water is a small business that uses 100% blue agave tequila, pure Mexican mineral water, and citrus, so it’s exactly like the kind I’d mix up at home. Never did I think I’d get behind canned cocktails, but here I am.”

My Favorite Things

With its editorial edge and moreish aesthetic, the wellness platform Bonberi suggests a sharp creative team behind the scenes. Enter Nicole Berrie—the brand’s founder, recipe developer, and frontwoman—who began her career working at ELLE and then Vanity Fair, where she helped book some of the magazine’s most notable covers. Bonberi.com began as a way for Berrie to connect her journalism background with a love for delicious, healthful eating, and she later opened Bonberi Mart, a plant-based corner store in the West Village. Today, the brand counts the likes of Ilana Glazer, Abbi Jacobson, and Hilary Rhoda among its many fans. Herewith, Berrie, whose new book, Body Harmony, comes out this week, reveals the items that have her immediate attention

Marfa Stance

$740

Reversible Cropped Quilt Jacket

“Some people love a statement bag or shoe, but I’m a statement-jacket person. I love this cropped version of their classic quilt, the perfect transitional weather piece.”

Ondyn

$11,000

Tennis Necklace

“I have recently been lusting over a tennis necklace but am drawn to pieces that are slightly different. I love designer Tara Maria Famiglietti’s subtle spin on the classic piece. It is the definition of a classic piece I would love to pass down to my daughter.”

Furtuna

$285

Skin Visione Di Luce Eye Revitalizing Cream

“Clean skincare has come a long way from one aisle in your local health food store. Furtuna harvests ingredients from their own farm in Sicily. It feels super luxurious on the skin but is also super gentle and effective.”

Saie

$35

Tinted Moisturizer

“I only use non-toxic skincare and makeup. This glides on perfectly and is the exact clean dupe to a popular tinted moisturizer I had used since middle school.”

Hill House Home

$95

Men’s Hotel Bathrobe

“Our whole family has one of their robes but I am always stealing my husband’s large one because it feels like I took a shower and put on an oversized hotel robe while on vacation, which is arguably the best feeling.”

TSW

$58

Lemongrass Balm

“When our son Jude was little, he suffered from eczema and we searched far and wide for natural remedies. This cream was created by a mother, who had similar issues, and we still use it to this day. We love the lemongrass scent and buy it in bulk.”

Higher Dose

$600

Infrared Sauna Blanket

“This sauna blanket became my lockdown all-star two years ago, and I still use it when I can’t get to the gym or am craving a good deep sweat. It is truly magic.”

Breville

$350

Toaster Oven

“At the risk of sounding like RHONY Sonja Morgan, I think the toaster oven is my most important appliance in the kitchen, next to my juicer and blender. We use it for everything from vegetables, to tortilla pizzas for the kids, to caramelized Japanese yams—and yes, even toast.”

Breville

$280

Juice Fountain Cold Plus

“The number one wellness appliance, in my opinion, is a good juicer. This is the juicer I’ve owned for over a decade and is what I use to make a daily green juice for me and my kids. It’s fast, efficient, and easy to clean. We even take it on road trips, to my husband’s chagrin.”

Le Creuset

$440

Signature Round Dutch Oven

“A good-quality Dutch oven is one of the top three investments any well-appointed kitchen should have. I cook everything from soups to stews to pasta and stir-fries in it, and it ages beautifully. I also prefer a fun color like red or orange.”

My Favorite Things

As a girl, watching her silversmith grandfather make jewelry, Jennifer Fisher recognized her professional and creative calling. But it wasn’t until after spending years working as a stylist that she dove headlong into the endeavor. “I didn’t connect with what the jewelry market was offering … everything felt girly and insubstantial,” she recalls. Initially working out of her Soho apartment, Fisher introduced a more personal, timeless take on jewelry design, and before long her business found a loyal following, when Uma Thurman wore one of her necklaces on the cover of Glamour. Herewith, the New Yorker and mother of two, who just launched her first fragrance, shares her shopping list.

Beast Health

$185

Blender and Hydration System Set

“It’s a recent discovery and my absolute favorite kitchen appliance for fast dressings and sauces without having to pull out my large blender. Not to mention, it’s chic and can be left out on the counter.”

$16

Ketotarian: The (Mostly) Plant-Based Plan to Burn Fat, Boost Energy, Crush Your Cravings, and Calm Inflammation

“When I was opening my Beverly Hills store last year, I needed something to read during my travel quarantine in L.A. I randomly selected this one not knowing the impact it would have on my life. I have read many books on health and wellness given my thyroid disease, but this book turned me onto a new anti-inflammatory lifestyle. I have never felt better.”

Michael Hyatt

$49

Full Focus Planner

“We live in a technology-based world, but there are just some things that I can’t put into the notes on my phone. Being a designer, I must sketch, and I need something where I can put pen to paper. This planner keeps my busy schedule perfectly organized and I can sketch out new ideas while I’m on calls and in-between meetings.”

Loewe

$1,700

Asymmetric Ruffled Denim Dress

Rimowa

$1,155

Trunk Plus

“However cool my old luggage was, it was metal and very heavy. I needed something that I could pack in for seven-plus days for work trips to Los Angeles. This trunk fits absolutely everything I need and it is never overweight!”

Jennifer Fisher

$350

Dean Gold-Plated Necklace

“Named after my grandfather Dean, this necklace adds a little edge to your daily layer of gold chains.”

Osea

$48

Anti-Aging Body Balm

“This is the most amazing product in the world. It’s a combination of a serum and an oil in one that keeps your skin hydrated. It’s honestly a miracle product.”

My Favorite Things

Author, TV personality, and society satirist Jill Kargman, who is on this year’s International Best-Dressed List, is arguably as notable for her inimitable, off-color wit as she is for her standout, Madison Avenue Gothic style. A lifelong New Yorker, the daughter of former Chanel president Arie Kopelman these days delights a legion of fans on social media with her fresh take on current events, an antidote to the torrent of heavier fare. Herewith, Kargman, creator of Bravo’s Odd Mom Out—whose three seasons are adapted from her 2007 book, Momzilla, and are now streaming on Peacock—spotlights the items she counts on night and day

“When I chow too much soy sauce and wake up looking like I’m storing nuts for the winter, these miracle tools take down the swelling and carve out your cheekbones instantly for that snatched Hailey Bieber look.”

Seed to Skin

$209

The Cure

“My husband and I went to hotel Borgo Santo Pietro and learned that their line of natural skincare started being made by monks before 1129! We found this cream to be legit crack for the face and have been telling everyone for years—and now Net-a-Porter picked it up, so we feel so vindicated.”

Hill House Home

$175

The Collector’s Edition Ellie Nap Dress

“Nell Diamond’s nap dresses legit got me through the pandemic. After a month of sweatpants, I switched to rotating these.”

Eva Fehren

“My friend Eva’s jewelry is chic but edgy. I love the black rhodium daggers with her micro-pavé. Her stuff is so dainty but also rock ‘n’ roll.”

Anya Hindmarch
