We love The Standard hotels. Britt just kicked it at the West Hollywood location while she was out west doing her Life With stories. And I can't seem to pick a spot other than the Standard Grill for dinner lately. We also happen to be big fans of Quiksilver, though we never really thought about the two coming together. Well, they have - in the form of a custom line of The Standard Boardshorts by Quiksilver (and black a bikini for the ladies) to be sold in vending machines at the hotels (downtown LA and Miami too), as well as on shopthestandard.com. The coolest thing about the shorts is that there is a pair inspired by each of the four hotels, and along the waistband you'll find cool tips about each neighborhood, like other pools to check out in New York.
Quiksilver's Joshua Katz told WWD, "The Standard hotels have pretty notorious pool scenes, so swimsuits made a lot of sense...This is a 24-hour customer, and a lot of times they might not have a swimsuit but want to take a late-night swim, after the hotel’s boutique is closed.” Having witnessed one or two of these ourselves, we happily welcome cute suit options via vending machine.
