At Hermès, just down the street, I picked up yet another animal-inspired beach towel. This one had two opposite-facing fish, done in a tiled, mosaic style against a deep red border and a sandy-colored background. The fish were “tiled” in deep reds and browns with accents of lime green and sandy yellow. Though chic and elegant, the colors were too fall-like—not what I wanted on a bright, sunny day. 691 Madison Ave., nr. 62nd St.; 212-751-3181.
