What we’re lusting after this month.

Stylist: Alex White

“Most sports posters are schlockfests of idolatry. The Costacos Brothers, though, turned it into an art form. Salon 94 Freemans in New York has a surreal show of their iconographic posters, opening June 23.” —FAN ZHONG, Assistant Editor

“Hoop earrings are my summer wardrobe staple—I wear them every day! I especially love this diamond and 14-karat gold feathered pair by Mizuki.” —CLAUDIA MATA, Executive Accessories and Jewelry Director (endless.com; $6,220)

“Nobody does wallpaper like Flavor Paper, from contemporary twists on traditional designs to outrageously over-the-top creations. Unlike most wallpaper places, they sell directly to the public, they can customize their designs in any color combination you like, and they’ve just released a fabric line of their best-loved prints for curtains, pillows, and upholstery.” —TED MONCREIFF, Executive Editor (flavorleague.com)

“Here, just in time for summer and the inevitable attack of mosquitoes, is Intelligent Nutrients Bug Repellent Perfume Spray. Loaded with nine essential oils—from cedar to rosemary and, of course, citronella—the blend is certified organic and good enough to eat—but not for them.” —CHRISTINA HAN, Associate Beauty Editor (intelligentnutrients.com; $28)

“I love my bikinis during the summer, but it will be fun to have this sporty, color-blocked one-piece in the mix for a different look.” —LINDSEY GATHRIGHT, Associate Fashion and Accessories Editor (petit-bateau.us; $68)

“I got addicted to Kiehl’s Ultimate Strength Hand Salve during the winter, and now that it’s garden-planting season, I’m just as hooked on it. It heals dry, cracked skin so quickly.” —CARL GERMANN, Assistant Managing Editor (kiehls.com; $13)

Stylist: Alex White

“I was browsing at Urban Architecture, a design gallery in Brooklyn, when I came across an extraordinary collection of jewelry created by Transavanguardia artist Mimmo Paladino in conjunction with architect Massimiliano Fuksas. They’re the perfect accessories for a cool gallerist to rock at the Venice Biennale or Art Basel.” —ARMAND LIMNANDER, Fashion News/Features Director (price upon request; 718.349.3837)

“I’m heading to Bali, Hong Kong, and the Philippines this summer, and I’m sure I’ll be able to recognize my Balenciaga by Nicolas Ghesquière Day-Glo bag as it makes its way down the airport conveyor belt.” —KATHY LEE, Associate Accessories Editor (at Balenciaga; $2,995)

“The Beginners is the first novel written by poet Rebecca Wolff. It’s a contemporary coming-of-age story, but it’s deeply informed by the Salem Witch Trials—the author is descended from one of the last women to be hung for witchcraft, in 1692—and the book maintains this amazing tension of innocence versus experience, luminosity versus dread, sexiness versus creepiness, on almost every page. Leave the light on.” —COREY SEYMOUR, Senior Articles Editor

“Natural Vines Strawberry Licorice qualifies as ‘natural’ because the company substitutes high fructose corn syrup with cane syrup and brown rice syrup. It even uses beet juice for coloring! I’ve convinced myself that the licorice is good for me, and buy it in bulk.” —JANE LARKWORTHY, Beauty Director

Stylist: Alex White

“The sleeveless trench is a trend I love from the spring shows, and this lambskin-trimmed version from Yigal Azrouël is the perfect lightweight layering piece for June.” —WILLIAM KAHN, Associate Accessories Editor (at Yigal Azrouël; $770)

“Prada’s Amber Pour Homme Intense is a great scent for summer. It’s masculine and fresh without being overbearing.” —GARRET MUNCE, Associate Market Editor (neimanmarcus.com; $55 for 50 ml)

“You won’t want to miss two of balletdom’s most sublime primas onstage at New York’s Metropolitan Opera House during American Ballet Theatre’s stint, through July 9. Be sure to check out the virtuosic Diana Vishneva in Giselle on June 2 and Lady of the Camellias on June 4, and powerhouse Natalia Osipova in Coppélia on June 20.” —DIANE SOLWAY, Senior Editor
