Brother and sister team, Benet Sommers, and Anne Sommers , spent their formative years living in Southeast Asia. With their combined world adventures they were inspired to create apparel that reflects this unique way of looking at the world, where pattern and color are bold, exotic and sun-kissed. The easy, casualness of rivieras around the globe reflect the essence of our brand, hence our name, Riviera!
Benet Sommers, has led a life of ever evolving adventure. A lifelong aviator, and sports enthusiast, his appetite for new experiences has led him to heli-skiing in the Canadian Rockies, mountain biking in Majorca, Norway, Japan, Chile, Bulgaria, and everywhere in between. Wearing a shirt that exudes an effortlessly laid-back attitude, with the confidence to be seen requires a substantial amount of life experience. We can help you start your journey!
Anne Sommers has let her life experience and curated, artful eye push her creative vision. As a designer, artist and lifestyle purveyor, she pursues the nonchalant aesthetic of the Riviera, the off-beat style of travelers on the Hippie Trail, dreams of discoveries along the Silk Road or the spirit of vagabond seekers exploring ruins of a 14th century palace. Fusing all this essence into the clothes and home goods is at the heart of the Riviera Clothing Company. More adventure awaits – join us on this journey.
