Though it might not be quite time to hit the beach, we’re counting the days. Luxury bed linen disruptor Brooklinen has offered us a ray of sunshine in the form of a new collaboration with a nod to everyone’s favorite New York City icons. Inspired by their Brooklyn roots, the company is collaborating with six New York City artists on a collection of limited-edition, summer-themed beach towel prints. The first three in the series, available starting March 3, include NYC Summer, High Tide, and Island Life. The first of these is indeed a snapshot of summer in the city.
As it turns out, a beach towel makes a perfect canvas for art and design, and the exclusive electric green NYC Summer print takes full advantage.
Designed by Kath Nash in Brooklyn as a “love letter to the city,” the print is a whimsical tribute to images New Yorkers and tourists alike can recognize: Hot dogs, pizza and pretzels share the soft, absorbent space with the Statue of Liberty–and a pigeon.
The artist, Kath Nash, says of the fabulous and funny design, “The feeling of being in New York City on a perfect summer day is inimitable–it’s a wonderful mix of spontaneity, delicious food, and lots of sweat. I tried to evoke that feeling in this piece.”
The other available beach towels–High Tide by Josh Cochran and Island Life by Cheryl Thuesday–are also an interpretation of–and spot-on accessory for–the ideal summer lifestyle.
According to Brooklinen, the limited-edition towels have a soft velour front, an absorbent terry back, and can be had for $75 each.
