Editors’ Picks

What we’re lusting after this month.

Stylist: Alex White

“Marina Abramović’s aphrodisiac chocolate dessert at New York’s Park Avenue Winter puts the ‘arty’ in ‘dinner party.’ It even comes with a set of headphones so you can listen to her instructing you on how to eat it.” —Karin Nelson, Features Editor

Stylist: Alex White

“I am loving this Nixon oversize rubber watch. It seems very high/low tech, and I will wear it when I go dogsledding in Quebec this month—it’s ideal for plunging headfirst into snowbanks.” —Regan Solmo, Managing Editor (shopbop.com; $150)

“When it’s cold outside, all I ever want to do is stay in and make things, so I am thrilled with Amy Sedaris’s Simple Times: Crafts for Poor People. The photos are beyond hilarious.” —Garrett Munce, Associate Market Editor

Stylist: Alex White

“I have tried everything to tame my unruly hair, and John Frieda Frizz-Ease 3-Day Straight Styling Spray did the trick. But it does require a bit of work: shampoo, blow-dry, and straightening. It’s all the steps a salon would do for a Brazilian or a keratin treatment but without the nose-burning chemicals—and it’s much less expensive. Sadly, it only lasts three days.” —Ashley Consiglio, Photo/Art Assistant (at drugstores; $9.99)

“These men’s leather bands from Tod’s are a grown-up version of friendship bracelets and look perfect when paired with a classic watch.” —William Kahn, Associate Accessories Editor (tods.com; $225 each)

Stylist: Alex White

“Before I left for Beirut and Damascus last summer, Executive Editor Ted Moncreiff suggested I read The Hakawati, by Rabih Alameddine. The cover alone is beautiful, but it’s the magical tales inside that gave me great insight into Middle Eastern culture.” —Karla Martinez, Fashion Market and Accessories Director

Stylist: Alex White

“Caldrea products do a damn fine job cleaning countertops, but what’s really amazing is how they smell. The newest cleanser, Mandarin Vetiver, has the scent of oranges right out of the crate.” —Jane Larkworthy, Beauty Director (caldrea.com; $9)

Stylist: Alex White

“This Rebecca Taylor outfit is pure perfection. It reminds me of No Doubt’s ‘Cool’ video, in which Gwen Stefani runs around Lake Como in the most incredible retro looks.” —Jeanine Celeste Pang, Associate to the Editor in Chief (rebeccataylor.com; top, $375, and skirt, $350)

Proenza Schouler’s new handbag is as tough as it looks. The designers used a special treatment on the patent leather to make the bag soft yet durable enough to withstand the sloppiest of New York City winters.” —Christina Caldwell, Online Director (proenzaschouler.com; $1,595)

Stylist: Alex White

“On a recent trip to Reykjavik, I tried the 12-course ‘exotic menu’ at a restaurant called Sjávarkjallarinn and was truly impressed. The reindeer carpaccio was especially delicious!” —Virginia VanZanten, Assistant Editor

Stylist: Alex White

“For a late-winter trip, I’m thinking of Boracay, an island in the Philippines that has some of the best beaches in Southeast Asia. Laid-back locals, good surfing, and a new Shangri-La resort inside a lush eco-reserve—it’s Bali without the crowds.” —Timothy McCahill, Research Editor

Stylist: Alex White

“A bouquet of flowers on Valentine’s Day is so predictable, and they die so quickly. I’d love to receive this beautiful Robert Longo rose charcoal drawing instead. It may be pricey, but it will last forever.” —Carolyn Tate Angel, Senior Fashion and Market Editor

“I love that these earrings by designer Suzanne Syz are precious and loaded with gems but still look fun and playful.” —Talya Cousins, Senior Accessories/Jewelry Editor (suzannesyz.ch; price upon request)
