You're heading to the beach this weekend: aren't you forgetting something? No, not that thready towel that tells the tales of a zillion DIY hair dye jobs. Just like you've upgraded your bikini top and bottom, this summer calls for an equally Pantone-happy beach towel to match. Design-obsessed e-tailer Fab.com recently partnered with the Albers Foundation, resulting in everyday goods that channel legendary textile and printmaking artist Anni Albers' eye-popping designs.
In addition to rolling out a range of housewares, the collab includes this retro orange print beach towel featuring the the mid century artist's iconic patterns. Measuring 70" by 40" and made of cotton, this colorful Cali cool piece would make the perfect sunny backdrop for your Insta beach selfies. Retro Ray Bans encouraged, but not required.
