Life's Little Luxuries: Hermès Beach Towels

At Fashion As a 2nd Language, we have a not-so-short list of current (and ongoing) obsessions: beautiful shoes; perfect jeans; and most things made by Hermès. We also love the beach, and all the accoutrements necessary for long days spent in the sun near the shore. So it naturally follows that we're crazy about these large Hermès beach towels (beach blankets, really–they're almost six feet square) and own them in every color: turquoise, citron, orange and fuchsia. They pack easily into a big bag and, when spread out together on the sand, create a wonderful, terry cloth crash pad for anything from groups of six or eight to much more intimate parties of two. See you at the beach!
