ADLER X MATTEL: It’s $50, it’s mod, and it’s designed by home design guru Jonathan Adler. Nope, it’s not a set of coasters: It’s the Jonathan Adler Barbie! She wears a ’60s minidress in a trademark Adler print and has her very own miniaturized Adler Bel Air lamp – in hot pink, natch. Available for Fashion Week (starting 9/10) at Toys 'R Us, 1514 Broadway (Times Square), 212-202-0651.
PLUGGED: British electric-folk bigwig Richard Thompson's career-spanning box set "Walking on a Wire" just hit stores. It’s a doozy, incorporating songs from 1968 to 2009 via his three major periods: work with Fairport Convention and (now ex-)wife Linda, as well as his recent solo material. $59.98 from Academy Records, 12 West 18th Street near Sixth Avenue; 212-242-3000.
SOCIAL: Fanning Henri Bendel on Facebook (that is a verb now, right?) or following the store on Twitter will net you 20% off your Bendel’s purchases through August 24. Head to the store’s Bendel Social kiosk (or their e-boutique) to redeem. 712 Fifth Avenue near 56th Street; 212-247-1100.
