As the editor-in-chief of Out magazine, Phillip Picardi leads a hectic life. Whether he’s working away at his New York City office or traveling the world for events and fashion weeks, he relies on a host of items to ground him. Picardi revealed to Furthermore his eight essentials which include two forms of footwear, the music of JoJo, and a DIY cold brew kit.
“Right now, this is my beauty essential. It’s a moisturizer and if you wear makeup during the day, it also acts as a primer. It’s a truly incredible product.”
“I got these on sale, and they’re still one of my favorite purchases ever. I will forever support Raf Simons.”
“I once put my AirPods in the laundry machine, so I went out and nabbed a pair of these. They’re a gym essential, and they never fall out."
“JoJo has been silenced by bureaucracy around her freshman and sophomore albums, so she made a genius move to rerecord and rerelease them with new musical arrangements to avoid copyright infringement. It is such a treat to visit these grown-up remixes of songs like ‘Baby It’s You’ or ‘Leave (Get Out).’"
“I keep the plastic bag with a spout in my refrigerator and refill it weekly. It’s the best cold brew I’ve ever had, and it’s so easy to make at home."
“It’s great because it gently reminds you of how much you’ve been sitting and how lazy you are throughout the day, and tells you to get your ass up. For anyone whose biggest competition is themselves, it’s a very handy motivator.”
“I think I’ve literally been through seven pairs of these in the past year, but I love how lightweight they are and they’ve never let me down.”
“There’s only one hair product I use consistently, and this is it.”
