You can pick up the Yves Béhar-designed Jawbone headset at Kirna Zabête or Colette. Made of lacquer on medical-grade plastic, Jawbone retails for $120 and reduces external noise by continuously adapting to the environment.
The Ariat Zip Top shirt has a special finish that repels pesky insects such as bees and flies. It costs $55 and will be available in stores later this month.
A pink Zune, due out in May, may inspire more girly designers than Stüssy, which pre-loaded a collection for editors on the original version. That launched in the fall for $250 in brown, white and black. Microsoft also plans a special limited edition of 20,000 of the music player in watermelon red, to be sold only at Target.
