What Fashion Designer Scott Sternberg Can’t Live Without

If you’re like us, you’ve probably wondered what famous people add to their carts. Not the JAR brooch and Louis XV chair, but the hairspray and the electric toothbrush. We asked fashion designer Scott Sternberg — the founder of Entireworld — about the water pitcher, sneakers, and alarm clock he can’t live without.

I have four of these in my house. I do transcendental meditation twice a day for 20 minutes. It’s a very tricky thing because you’re not supposed to set an alarm clock, and you don’t really want your phone around, and I don’t wear a watch. So I use these tiny digital clocks to time my transcendental meditation. I only need to open my eyes a little bit to see the time and know I’m almost there.

I use this as body soap. I get it in the huge containers and then I put some soap in old Necessaire bottles. I’ve been using it forever. I like it unscented: To me, it’s like, what does a scent have to do with cleansing yourself? When I clean myself, I’m looking for baseline me. I’m not looking for baseline me plus lavender.

It has the most zing to it and is almost, like, thicker or something. Kombuchas all have a bit of fizz along with the gut health stuff, but there’s something about the mango that’s even zingier. I figured this out after much market research and personal sampling sessions.

I drink a lot of water. I force myself to drink it directly from a bottle. I have a Korken at my dining room table — which has been my desk during the pandemic — and I swig water out of it all day long. I have a relatively small house that’s built on a hill. My bedroom is downstairs and my kitchen is upstairs. The big unlock for me when I moved in was to have water bottles everywhere so I wasn’t always walking to the kitchen.
