    Pin-Up Perfect

    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.

    PRICE: $175

    AVAILABLE: www.yoox.com

    In Her Hands

    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.

    PRICE: $198

    Bright Eyes

    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...

    PRICE: $185

    In The Army Now

    WHAT: JNBY Military dress

    WHY: You don't need to look far to see that the military look is spot-on for the season (merci, Spring 2010 Balmain)---but for those of us who don't have as many occasions for bedazzled and shredded takes, take note: JNBY opens its first New York outpost tomorrow in SoHo, and if you're itching for a little wear-everywhere summer frock, we've found it. This army-green dress is ready to go over a bikini, with flats in the city, with piles of jewelry...we just might not recommend it for boot camp.

    PRICE: $195

    AVAILABLE: JNBY, 75 Greene Street, NYC, 212.219.2505
