The Closet: Into the Forest – Shop from Editors’ June Picks

June 2012 Closet: Into The Forest

This month’s closet takes you on a journey into the deep, dark, enchanted forest, where nature reigns and folklore and fairytale characters were born.

Our editors have carefully picked their favorite fashion and beauty finds inspired by the magical creatures, plants and nature found within the playground of lush green grass and tall, winding willow trees.

From a howling wolf ring, to a bracelet inspired by the organic silhouettes of tree branches, our June closet feature editors’ summer must-haves.

So,  wherever you are, come out to play and shop from the collections of Pamela Love, Marc Jacobs, Elizabeth and James, Phillip Lim, Akris, Haider Ackermann, Jil Sander, Mulberry, and many more.
