That Riviera Touch

ALRIGHT you may think George Michael and Andrew Ridgley in Club Tropicana or Don Johnson in the all pose no police work series Miami Vice, which made the donning of sunseekers style clothes fashionable in rain soaked Blighty.

Dashing about in a speed boat or Lamborghini may be well out of anyones reach, but still the clothes were worth checking out.

Well the famous Barcelona born shoe has a new challenger in town or by the beach in the shape of Rivieras.

Born in France, the Rivieras are set to knock the espadrilles out of the charts with a tougher simple and stylish look based on a a old classic, but just simply better.

The Classic range comes in six colour types, with perforated front canvas mesh top slip on shoe and elasticated side wall and sturdy sole.

Coming in the 10 and 20 style which is a lower cut between the two come in beige, motel grey, blue jeans and noir, or for those with a spot more colour to there wardrobe try the hot rod or France shoe, which not only boast the lovely trim sole design, the France shoe comes with a navy blue top, white mid-sole stitching, and red heal section.

The hot rod shoe is an off white colour, with red trim on the shoes front and blue on the heel section.

All boast the Riviera logo on the heel. The shoe, which is well priced looks to make a great addition to any summer wardrobe, be it Fila Lifer tennis shorts addition smacking of the 80s heyday of the Wham boys or maybe try adding the Saint James, Picaso nautical top to the look, the boat neck tee shirts, more on these at another date, are a nice way to round off a shoe driven look.

The sea inspired jumpers, famously work by Picasso have side vents, long sleeves and are lightweight top with a striped design.

The dark blue and red, cream and navy or dark blue and cream tops are slightly different from the Picaso in as much as the striped design is not as complete on the shoulders, wrists and waist line, with thinner stripes.

Give your wardrobe a touch of the Riviera about it and now.
