Summer Prediction: Finally, the year of Rivieras
Despite years of not quite making it into the mainstream, I think Rivieras is finally on the verge. Although they’ve been offering a variety of colors for many years, I feel that the current selection (combined with their new website and distribution channels) is just enough to push them over the edge. I expect to see at least one pair of these every week on passersby this summer. The price is right (approximately $70), the craftsmanship is clean, the silhouette is subtle and sharp, and they’re available at plenty of store. Though I may be at a slight advantage living in French Canada.
