Between this and Clare V.'s Garrett Leight sunnies collab, we're ready to be our chicest selves at the beach. Accessories designer Clare Vivier has teamed up with One Kings Lane to produce an exclusive series of gorgeous, Paris-inspired towels inspired by her spring 2016 collection that are as wallet-friendly as they are worthy of turning heads.

Available here for $39 a pop right now, the US-made towels come in four styles—spotted, striped, black with the phrase "Le Grand Départ," and green with the phrase "Cervezafría." Vivier tells the home decor leader that "Le Grand Départ is what they say every summer in France when all the cities empty out and everyone goes to the countryside," and the Cervezafría towel is a nod to a hand-painted sign in Silver Lake.

Fabric is luscious cotton velour, and size is 60 inches in length by 30 inches in height. Expect all the compliments.
