Ok so you’re staying at the Trump Soho NYC on business and you never dreamed you’d have any down time but here you are with a few glorious hours of leisure, expansive pool, a smiling sun and no swimsuit.
Brazilian native and bikini lover, Paula Hermanny comes to the rescue with her VIX Valise. It’s a goody bag of sorts, which contains all you need for a swim and then some. The kit comes to your room in a black and white bold stripe tote. Inside are a black bikini with gold accents, a white caftan (can’t go wrong there), black flip-flops and a towel to go with the color scheme, all in your size. Truth be told, sunglasses and sunscreen are still required but you’ve brought the sunnies and you can borrow a squeeze of sun prevention from your lounging mate. It’s a pricey indulgence at $468 but no matter you’re on vacation in chic New York. Even if its only for a few hours.
