Above: According to Permanant Collection’s founders, Fanny Singer and Mariah Nielson, “For our collaboration with the Calder Foundation, we selected the luxury Italian textile house, Gentili Mosconi, to bring Alexander Calder’s ink ‘cartoon’ from 1949 to life in wearable form.” The Calder Silk Scarf is $325 from Permanent Collection; note that the shop is “offering a special 20 percent off promotion on our Calder Scarves and JB Blunk Jewelry collection, to show our appreciation for the most special women in our lives.”

Above: Margot and Julie are obsessed with the Pineapple Linzer Cookies from Té Company in the West Village; they’re made with two discs of hazelnut shortbread and filled with pineapple jam; a box of six is $20. According to chef and co-owner Frederico Ribeiro, the cookie is an interpretation of the traditional Taiwanese pineapple cake. (Read more at Té Company: The Loveliest Tea Room in New York.)
