When we saw the Yoshitomo Nara Towel ($95), we decided its time to chuck our Simpsons towel (sorry dudes!). This towel is especially spectacular because it's an exclusive reproduction of an art piece by Yoshitomo Nara and was made possible by the Art Production Fund, a group that works closely with artists to bring sweet products like this one into fruition. This large, fluffy towel will look stunning on the beach, and hey, maybe you'll strike up some intriguing conversation with a dapper art major.
While she might just look like a cartoonish girl upon first look, she is actually internationally renown Japanese artist Yoshitomo Nara's signature character. She's a large-headed child depicted in a variety of activities, such as playing in a box, holding a flag, or reading a book, but here she simply sits with her eyes closed in a state of peace.
