Reading about packing is almost as awful as packing itself. Unfortunately, it is the necessary evil that comes along with a fabulous jaunt. Since you already have my superefficient beach and ski packing lists, this one is a little more luxurious. Today, we are going to shop for items that will make any spring break an art-filled adventure—even if you are planting yourself on a beach, rose in hand, and not more for a week.
I am a sucker for any blue accessory. But a blue handbag? It’s everything! That is simply because it looks sensational and is neutral but, well, just better. Any art lover can relish the unexpectedness of this Dee Ocleppo and Marc Quinn collaboration.
Call me Howard Hughes, but depending on the accommodation, some hotel beach towels are not a pretty situation. For sure, none of them are as pleasing to the eye as this Jasper Johns beach towel at Other Criteria.
Locations in London and Devon, England; and New York City
No matter where you are traveling and what the ultimate pursuit may be, you must have a great pair of sneakers. Why not have them be Nate Lowman Converse? The best part is, you don’t have to wait outside a store all night or overpay a 14-year-old who did!

Sand or snow, sunglasses are a must on any spring break. For Your Art collaborates with an artist annually to produce a chic new pair. This year, she collaborated with Alex Israel’s Freeway eyewear and Raymond Pettibon to create these chic shades.
THE YOGA MAT
This one may sound unnecessary, but hear me out. I am not even a true yogi but have found myself participating in beautiful early-morning beach, rooftop, and spa yoga all over the world. More and more hotels provide them in the room, but, seriously? I will meditate on my own properly disinfected Daniel Arsham mat, thank you.
