Some will head to Aspen, others to the Hamptons, and a few will flock to Europe.

Or, maybe you are among the privileged few joining Houston philanthropist Becca Cason Thrash in Paris and then Venice for her Liaisons au Louvre IV and La Dolce Vita Venezia extravaganzas, which will raise much-needed funds for the Musée du Louvre and Venetian Heritage. Wherever the jet is taking you, we hope you'll bring this June issue with you. It's a feast for the eye and mind: Catherine D.

Then, Aviña jumps to gingham — inspired, in a twisted way, by the Metropolitan Museum of Art's Costume Institute's Comme des Garçons exhibition.
