Out and About

Houseware Happenings

The very latest gadgets for the home and housewares will officially preview at the national tradeshow in Chicago in March—but we don't need a crystal ball to see into future developments. Many of the companies brought their latest brainstorms to a preview show held this month in New York. Here are some future fixtures:

Art Basel Miami Beach

Once again this year we journeyed to Florida for supercharged Art Basel Miami Beach. Here's a diary roundup of some of the activities we managed to fit into only three days of fair week.

A Few of My Favorite Things

Unlike the Trapp Family I'm not going to sing about them, and unlike Oprah I'm not able to give them away to you. But at least I can share some things I've come across during the year -- perhaps they'll give you ideas for last-minute stocking stuffers.

A Day in New York

In a single day we managed to attend the launch of two new design products, the opening of two art exhibits, celebrations of two new books, a luncheon supporting an important cause, the introduction of a new club and the screening of a new film. Whew!

Paellas and Chocolate With A Twist

Innovative chefs have been busy updating perennial favorites—here are some new takes on Spanish cuisine and chocolate.

Snow Shows—Stormy Goings On

While Hurricane Sandy caused cancellation or postponement of events all over town, the follow up Nor'easter wasn't a deterrent. Sloshing through the slush and blowing snow, we stopped by events taking place uptown and down.

Green Goods

At the International Housewares Association preview of new products, we picked out some items that aid a greener living

Fashion Forward

Recently the Javits Center was filled with designers showing off their wares at shows called ModaManhattan/Accessories The Show/ and FAME. These are some of the items that came to our attention.

Product Parties

Food processers even an athlete can manage, a space-age decorative speaker, wall surfaces that are deeply beautiful, and new items for the home from a favorite fashion store are some of the new products we've been introduced to at press events around town

Three to See

Travel back to the times of Medieval Jousts and Renaissance Rome at the Metropolitan Museum of Art or through the ages in Master Drawings at the Frick.

Fashion's Night Out

East Side, West Side, Uptown and Down—Thursday, September 6 was the annual "Fashion's Night Out" celebration of style, goodies, a la mode outfits, and trends all over town.

Gallery Walls

It's galleries galore around town with wonderful new art shows opening almost every day.

FIT to be Honored

The Couture Council of the Fashion Institute of Technology presented its annual award to Oscar de la Renta at a lovely luncheon heralding the arrival of Fall Fashion Week.

Show Shopping

Taking a break between events at the Hampton Classic horse show, we went "tent shopping" and brought home some prizes of our own.

Go See

Internationally influential iconic art by Andrew Wyeth, an heiress's Oriental palace, and a film about a splintered family dynasty are enticing audiences in New York City. Here are two exhibits and a film you might want to go see.
