The Pool at The Standard, Miami
For me, weekends are the greatest days of the week. Actually, my entire week is really like a seven day weekend, but I like to focus on Saturday and Sunday because that’s when my friends don’t have to go a thing they call a “job” (what is that????), and they have time to hang out with me.
Now that I find myself spending a lot of time in NYC during the summer, the friends and I usually run out to my beach house for the weekend or we fly down to The Standard, Miami for endless spa services or we go to LA to hang out with celebs and all the fabulous people I know at The Standard, Hollywood or The Standard, Downtown LA.
But no matter where I go, there are certain things I always need to take with me, and I’m here today to share them with you because I know your weekends would fall apart without them…
Thanks to a partnership with Opening Ceremony and the Art Production Fund (under the umbrella of the former’s ongoing project WOW, or Works on Whatever), The Standard is stocking artist-customized towels.
The latest installment of this collaboration presents two towel designs premiered at The Standard Spa, Miami Beach during Art Basel Miami Beach from December 2-6, 2009. Revered Japanese pop artist Yoshitomo Nara and celebrated British landscape artist Peter Doig each customized one of the terrycloth canvases. Past artists have included Julian Schnabel, Cindy Sherman, Karen Kilimnik and Raymond Pettibon.
