Furthering our jealousy of certain CH editors presently sitting on an island beach while we shiver in NYC, this beach towel from Raf Simons' recently released Spring/Summer Accessories 2009 has to be one of my favorite pieces from the collection. For those of us who prefer something a little more understated than the brightly colored varieties out there, Simons' black-and-white towel does the trick.
Featuring a quote from the Leonard Cohen song "Anthem," the towel reads "there is a crack in everything that's how the light gets in." We like the humor and provocation of the text, inviting lazy beach side interpretations of its meaning—that is if you're not too busy taking a dip to cool off from the heat absorbed by the black towel.
Available from Colette for €125.
