Shrooms With a View

Plus Marvel’s new Halloween costume line, Details talks style at Barney’s and more

FUNGI: Sweet new botanical-print giftwraps from Cavallini have arrived at Kate’s Paperie – we especially love this French mushroom primer. Would look wonderful framed against a daring black kitchen wall. $4.50 per sheet; find locations here. 

MASKED MARVEL: It was just a matter of time: With Marvel being the biggest comic-world crossover success story, you were kind of expecting them to release a line of Halloween costumes based on the Women of Marvel. And so it is that this year, you can be Black Cat, Spider Girl, you name it – all available at Ricky’s starting around $70; find your closest location here.

ROLLING ROCK: “Whip It,” a.k.a. the Drew Barrymore Roller Derby Movie With the Chick From “Juno” – hits theaters today. And can we tell you how awesome the soundtrack is? It has goodies from Tilly and the Wall, the genius Raveonettes (who also have a new disc out this week that you need to hear, FYI), Peaches (who we suspect is a closet derbyist herself), and even a little Dolly Parton. This OST has more than a whiff of John Hughesian greatness about it. Spin the tracks here, get the disc at Sounds, 20 Saint Marks Place; 212-677-3444.

DEETS: The Details Magazine Sartorial Club meets at Barney’s on Saturday, where fashion editors will be on hand to discuss the rules of style with Italian tailoring types named Gianluca and -- random! -- “The Good Wife”’s Josh Charles (who, admittedly, looks really good in a suit). All that, plus champagne and hors d’oeuvres and discounts on your purchases? Si. Saturday, 11AM.

REMINDER: Running through Sunday, October 4, 7 For All Mankind is hosting its first-ever sample sale. It’s all here: apparel for men and women, plus jackets, dresses, accessories, you name it – and of course, there’ll be no shortage of the label’s famous jeans, a.k.a. the jeans that make our ass look like it has a personal trainer (not remotely the case). Metropolitan Pavilion, 123 West 18th Street; 212-463 0071.
