Artist Kehinde Wiley Will Keep You Dry at the Beach

If you joined the jet set down in Miami last week, you might have seen these towels floating around Art Basel (they were the official towels at Balazs's posh Raleigh Hotel, meaning guests likely scored on the stolen-amenities front), but if you, like us, were stuck here in the ambiguously seasonal weather, amid sinus-infected friends and co-workers, fear not: They're available online for a pretty reasonable $50 at Worksonwhatever.com and Target.com. Artists include contemporary megastars Kehinde Wiley, Elizabeth Peyton, Cindy Sherman, and Jeff Koons. —Rachel Wolff
