Treillage's deep orange picnic basket. Plus, Garrett Wade horns, Catherine Deneuve's silver-buckled pilgrim shoes, the perfect desk fan...


The Best Bet
In an age of free-range, grain-fed food from obscure global sources, the old-fashioned paper-bag picnic seems sadly inadequate. Treillage’s gorgeous deep-orange picnic basket ($750; 212-535-2288) does justice to your gourmet taste. Handwoven from water-hyacinth reeds, it holds six light, sturdy lacquered place settings inside rattan covers: Square plates, glasses, three-piece utensil sets in black with red tips, and a brushed-silver thermos—the removable lid doubles as a tray, too.
