January’s Most Wanted

What our editors are lusting after this month.


“I’ve become a regular at this salon not only for Cartier’s amazing cut and color but also because he is the founder of Friends Are by Your Side, which provides free wigs and ongoing hair care to women with cancer.”—Melanie Teppich Senior Designer


“My friend Juan Carlos Obando is making this feather-print dress in a special color for me to wear at my pre-wedding cocktail party.“—Karla Martinez Fashion Market and Accessories Director


“Of Amedeo’s gorgeous and whimsical cameo rings, I love this one because it riffs on the ancient proverb ‘See no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil.’ It’s a good reminder to have on your finger.”—Maura Egan Features Director


“L’Oréal Paris has all these new problem-solving hair products, but I am particularly impressed with this mask. I only have to leave it on for five minutes, and I don’t need to apply any pre-styling smoother afterward.”—Jane Larkworthy Beauty Director


“This gladiator sandal is great for warm weather, and the heel is definitely party-ready: perfect for my tropical New Year’s getaway.” —Nora Milch Associate Accessories Editor


“I’m usually scared of waves, but this Etro board, with its paisley print, actually inspires me to grab a wet suit and hit the surf—preferably somewhere exotic.”—William Kahn Accessories Editor


“Susan Easton is a former graphic designer who turned her love of off-the-grid travel into a business. Recently, she worked with artisans in a small Andean town in Peru to create these handmade alpaca blankets.”—Bifen Xu Editorial Photo Producer


“I’m always in the market for a cool pair of kicks, and these embossed-leather Dunk Sky Hi ones cover all my bases: stylish lines, a reptile print (designed in honor of the Chinese Year of the Snake), and an inside wedge that creates a leg-lengthening effect. Win.”—Vanessa Lawrence Fashion Writer


“My young son’s sartorial arsenal ranges mostly from train motifs to stripes—so I’m dying to snap up these flowy ombré harem pants from Tom & Drew as gifts for the groovy girls in our preschool set.”—Regan Solmo Managing Editor


“This is the latest website to join the onslaught of online galleries— and it just may be the most charming. Conceived as an artwork, it takes the form of a virtual house, illustrated by Pierre Le-Tan, and shows pieces by the likes of Antonio Lopez, Grillo Demo, and René Grau, which can be purchased off the walls.”—Karin Nelson Features Editor
