Stan loves a party more than anyone else we know. Give us a martini, a pair of Dior Homme sunglasses, a stripper pole and some pulsating beats, and we’re good to go. Although, the one thing we love more than a party is a pool party, and that’s exactly what we had last weekend when we celebrated The Standard Hotel’s boardshort collaboration with Quiksilver on the rooftop of The Standard, Downtown LA. We wish you could have been there because it was over the top!
All of Los Angeles’ Stan D’elovelies showed up to take part in the festivities and to get their hands on a pair of shorts and bikinis being sold through the first ever swimsuit vending machine. (The machine was also dispensing condoms just in case anyone wanted to “lose” their boardshorts later. Safety first!)
There were black and red jello shots to match the Standard Downtown’s boardshorts. Performances by Dawes and Warpaint sent some revelers into an aquatic frenzy while the rest of the crew used the Quiksilver water guns to attack the party people contorting their bodies on the the giant Twister board!
Our favorite part of the festivities was the life size “photobooth” where people were posing for pictures in their new boardshorts with vintage Quiksilver mannequins. All pics are uploaded to The Standard’s Facebook page. Make sure to upload yours if you haven’t already.
And what’s a party without gifts??? If you were one of the lucky ones to garner an invite, you probably walked away with Quiksilver’s mismatched flip flops made in the same graphics as the shorts. Too chic! We’ve been mismatching since we were seven years old. There was also on-site custom t-shirt screening where you got to pick your print, design your t-shirt and silkscreen a one of a kind tee to take home with you. We’re wearing ours right now!
We don’t want to drive you crazy with all the fun details of a party you missed, so we made a video for you which you can watch by clicking here. And if you haven’t bought your limited edition Standard Quiksilver boardshorts yet, visit Shop The Standard to see if they haven’t yet run out. If so, email us and maybe we’ll give you ours…..but we probably won’t! Sorry!
