Who remembers last summer when one of the city's biggest sexy scandals involved guests of the Meatpacking District's Standard Hotel tramping about nude in front of the floor-to-ceiling windows above the High Line? Good times, good times. Too bad this summer they won't have an excuse for such exhibitionist behavior, as The Standard renews their swimwear collaboration with Quiksilver, including four boardshorts styles, one bikini, a pair of sunglasses and sunscreen by Shiseido.
So where can you snag a pair of the limited-edition $75 trunks, $88 reversible bikini or $88 wayfarer-type shades? Well, the Standard's vending machine, of course. Each of the four Standard Hotels is equipped with one of these babies, and you can find the Standard NY's vending machine inside the stairwell at Le Bain (the hotel's pool bar and rooftop lounge).
