Vending Machine Dressing

| 6 August , 2009 | 2 Replies

Quiksilver and The Standard Hotel have collaborated on a series of board shorts using original designs from 70s & 80s and patterns inspired by the four Standard hotels in Hollywood, Downtown LA, Miami, and NY.

The Boardies (as we call them here in Oz) are available via this vending machine located on the Hotel’s properties which I think is super cool.  I can see these vending machines at the Swiss Grand Rooftop Pool at Bondi and of course The Ivy Rooftop Pool in Sydney’s CBD.  What about down at Bondi Beach?vending_machineAnd girls we don’t miss out a bikini that’s based on one of the first designs released by Quiksilver women will also be available via the touch-screen vending machine.

The other really cool feature is that the boardies come with a list of addresses in the waistband, put together by Natas Kaupas (Skateboarding legend and Quiksilver Creative Director), and correspond to five unique destinations near each of the hotels. Themes for each city are:

  • Downtown LA – Art Undercover
  • Hollywood – Music Musts
  • New York – Summer in the City
  • Miami – Comida is CubanCity Guide Detail in Short Waistband

And even cooler is the official launch party is being held this weekend at the rooftop pool of The Standard Downtown LA and my bestie in LA, Brad Hills, is attending, so I’m looking forward to hearing a report back.

You can also shop online for a pair or two.

This gives a new meaning to snacking now doesn’t it?

    Incredible, love the idea and the gorgeous black bikini.

    Hope a vending machine does come to Australia, so we can buy them!

  2. Vending machine dressing? That is TOO awesome! Although perhaps dangerous, too.. I can just imagine rolling back to a hotel after a big night out and deciding to acquire each piece of clothing for the sheer novelty factor!
