LUX Loves: Trendy Vending
Vending machines are usually associated with unhealthy snacks and corporate break-rooms but a whole new trend of LUX vending machines are hitting the streets, from Paris to Los Angeles, giving trendy travelers their necessities at the push of a button.
Starting last month, Parisian metro stations feature Sephora vending machines that sell small sizes of CK One for 10 euros. No need to leave the subway feeling smelly, this uni-sex scent is an easy fix to a common commuter problem.
UK: After-party shoes
Every girl’s worst nightmare: After a long night out with the girls, no cabs are available and she has to cardio the way home. The worst part? In her 4 inch Louboutins. British brands, Rollasoles and Afterheels, offer a savvy solution to party-goers. Just insert £5 and out pops ballet flats! Rollasoles doesn’t just give a gal plain old black, but makes these flats totally wearable to the after-party in hues such as gold, silver and pink. Where to put the stilettos? Both names offer a tiny tote to carry your club shoes.
USA: Bathing suits
A classic travel problem, everyone has shown up beachside without a bathing suit. Don’t fret! Quicksilver teamed up with The Standard Hotel to solve the problem. Instead of settling for boring trunks, shop trendy styles poolside. Mojito anyone?
