In celebration of Vogue’s 120-year anniversary, “luxury linen purveyor” D. Porthault created a special, limited-edition beach towel. It features a reproduction of the magazine’s cover from July 15, 1926 — an Art Deco–style illustration by Spanish artist Eduardo Garcia Benito. Priced at $450, it’s available now, the perfect season “for resort-beach sojourns”; at least the price tag gives you a legitimate reason to be annoyed when people get sand or sunscreen residue on it.
