India Menuez - It Girl People ask me why I feel comfortable being nude, but I’ve never thought that showing my body was to be revealing something that intimate—after all, it’s something everyone has. The naked body isn’t inherently a sexual body, even though the female body is inherently sexualized within a patriarchal system—confronting that, in fact, can even work to remove the shame. Not that I’m a full-on nudist or am hanging out naked with my friends all the time. (I mean, there are occasions.) I have family in Iceland, where there’s a big public bathing culture thanks to an incredible excess of geothermal energy, and things like having to get naked to shower before going into a pool have helped normalized nudity for me—experiences that remind me of my body’s grounding functionality, and even universality. The Francis Francis X7.1 iper The Francis Francis X7.1 iper machine works only with illy’s revolutionary new iperEspresso capsules. Unlike conventional one-stage systems, the iperEspresso method uses an innovative, patented two-stage process to create intensely aromatic, full-bodied espresso with rich, velvety crema that lasts and lasts. And because extraction takes place entirely inside the capsule, the coffee and machine never come in contact, making for easy cleanup. Designed by renowned Italian architect Luca Trazzi, this striking machine adds a strong visual statement to any kitchen. $249 available at
