Best Bet: Art Supplies


Maybe it's raining, or sleeting, or you're lugging what feels like the contents of your life around the city. Some days clearly call for a durable, weather-be-damned tote. Those days, it's nice to sport one that isn't the ubiquitous Strand or Topshop bag. In honor of the Whitney Biennial, photographer and visual artist Ari Marcopoulos designed this limited-edition tote in partnership with Tommy Hilfiger. The sturdy straps will withstand whatever you're hauling, and the arty image of an effects unit works for both sexes. Best of all, half the profits benefit the museum. Pick one up this weekend and check out more of Marcopoulos's work for free: The first 1,000 visitors to Tommy Hilfiger’s Fifth Avenue store (681 Fifth Ave., nr. 53rd St.; 212-223-1824) between the Februrary 25 and 27 get their Whitney admission waived this Saturday, courtesy of Tommy Hilfiger.

$98 at Tommy Hilfiger or the Whitney Museum.
