WHAT: Hermès H Hour Bougainvillea watch
WHY: Let's be honest: you know you need an Hermès watch, particularly this limited-edition version is a perfectly poppy pink. Named after the flower in the same shade, Hermès' H Hour watch has all the luxe touches you'd expect, like a steel H-shaped face, goatskin strap, and the cutest little wink to Hermès history---all the numerals are black except the two and four, a nod to the company's Paris address at 24, rue Faubourg Saint-Honoré.
AVAILABLE: Hermès Boutiques nationwide, 212.751.3181

WHAT: Katharine Hamnett Beach for YOOXYGEN Bikini
WHY: You're more than familiar with e-commerce giant Yoox by now (and if you're not, what are you waiting for?), but YOOXYGEN, the company's eco-friendly offshoot, is just as noteworthy. The latest designer in its lineup is Katharine Hamnett, whose Save the Sea capsule collection launches on the site today. The collection is made entirely from sustainable fabrics (either organic cotton or recyclable polyester), but our favorite piece is this pin-up-esque bikini in adorable polka dots. A retro feel with a thoroughly modern sense of environmentalism? Yes, please.

WHAT: La Petite Princesse Finger Print Cuff
WHY: Because as much as we love things that are shiny and new, there's something so charmingly old-world about this gold cuff. Molded by hand using the wax technique, every piece by designer Carole Le Bris Perez is cast in white bronze and dipped in 24 karat gold or silver. This cuff in particular has a gorgeously handmade quality---you an even see the fingerprints of the artist in the molded gold.

WHAT: Ksubi Lyra sunglasses
WHY: Ksubi's 2010 eyewear collection may be called Book Club, but there's nothing bookish about these babies. Trade in your classic black shades for these digital print sunnies, and get ready for your day to brighten up considerably. No, they're not for the faint of heart...
