The Standard Hotel has decided to be prepared for the influx of guests who decide on a swim at whim. A new poolside vending machine carrying exclusively designed boardshorts and bikinis by Quiksilver have shown up at four of the hotel’s properties in LA, Hollywood, Miami and New York. There are four men’s designs in the first batch of boardshorts, inspired the fits and looks of 70s and 80s styles. The $75 boardshorts are made in Quiksilver’s ultra-lightweight “diamond dobby” stretch material, which prevents rashes, with a retro scalloped leg and come packaged in a waterproof travel bag.
