The fanciful background of Riviera Clothing Company
Designer, Founder, and CEO, Anne Sommers is a well-traveled woman, having been to 6 of the 7 continents in her lifetime, cultural references and bold prints are omnipresent in Sommers’ selection of fabrics, some of which are unique to Riviera and designed by Sommers herself. A Graphic Designer turned Fashion Designer, it is all about the prints at Riviera Clothing Company.
Bestselling prints include the “Gators and Roses,” and “Night Cheetah.” These whimsical deigns add a bit of fun and personality to timeless men’s and women’s silhouettes. The classic cut of the clothing means sporters can style them beyond the beach as is easily presented in Riviera’s versatile styling.
Whimsical charmers from Riviera
All of Sommers’ pieces are designed in East Boston, hand-printed on 100% cotton fibers in India, and later handmade in New York City. For men, and unisex options, you can shop this women-owned business’ variety of long sleeve and short sleeve button downs in addition to relaxed-fitting shorts.
