Having seen various companies pair up with some of the finest hotels worldwide within the past few years, we see Quiksilver continue the trend with a new collaboration alongside Andre Balazs’ The Standard Hotels. Both mens and womens swimwear will be available starting August 8th within their hotel locations and online. The ultra lightweight designs, taking cues from 70s-80s styles, will be available within a poolside vending machine, with each boardshort coming in its own waterproof travel bag.
A bit more about the collection:
Each design features a “Quik City Guide” on the inside waistband, with addresses of local places of interest. The Downtown L.A. trunk features alternative art spaces in that city, the Hollywood trunk highlights independent music venues, the New York trunk lists other swimming pools to visit there and Miami features hip restaurants and cafes. The inside label on each reads “The Standard Boardshorts by Quiksilver.”
In addition to the swimsuits, the vending machines will offer zines and $10 works of art from local artists.
