A Chic Beach-Towel Upgrade

Alex Katz, world-renowned artist best known for his portraits, recently partnered with the Art Production Fund and Barneys New York to design a series of home and lifestyle items. The collection includes limited-edition trays, napkins, totes, and this reversible towel featuring Katz’s iconic black-and-white sketches, a smart alternative to the average striped neon towels everyone else will be bringing to the beach. Stick it in your woven beach tote and you will definitely be the most refined beachgoer in sight.
