The Standards have always been, and will continue to be, known for their unique, eclectic boutique-like properties. Each one of the luxury hotel’s properties has a different flare that easily separates itself from the sea of other hotel chains worldwide. The Standard prides itself on offering its guests the unexpected but still veritable cool. With that said, the recent addition of the poolside vending machines and what’s being distributed from them shouldn’t shock a soul. In fact, if you’re a fan of the properties and your style coincides with them as well, you’ll be thrilled.
Quicksilver, one of the most well-known brands in surf apparel has teamed up with The Standard and is now offering their classic board shorts styled from the ‘70s and ‘80s as well as their classic black bikinis at the pools of all their properties, and out of vending machines no less. So it’s no longer just about the sand and surf for the time-honored brand. You don’t have to live in Hawaii, surfing pipelines to wear the label anymore.
Whether you’re lapping up your privileged lifestyle by the pool in Miami, LA, Hollywood, or even New York, Quicksilver and The Standard have come together to ensure that you not only enjoy your luxury-filled life, but your poolside threads as well. How avant-garde of them. An unconventional luxury hotel chain with even more unconventional extras? We love it!
Each pair of shorts is designed for the city they are offered in. For instance, The Standard in LA offers shorts with bright, bold colors to play off the city’s bright and bold characteristics and communities. And in Miami, the shorts feature yellow piping against a bright white background to immolate the almost always sunshine-filled city. To top it off, each pair no matter what city, is signed by Natas Kaupas, the creative director for the surf wear company.
Just when you thought vending machines were for snacks and beverages only, The Standard teams up with Quicksilver to shock you with their innovations again. So it turns out that The Standard is really not so standard after all, but we posh aficionados already knew that. But even though, I’ll be the first to admit, that I never tire of hearing and seeing the latest innovative and cutting-edge concepts and ideas created by the luxury boutique chain. They know how to keep a person on their toes, which is probably one of their best selling points. So what’s next for them? I don’t know, but I along with many others will be patiently waiting to find out.
