Introducing Racked National's new travel feature, Summer Fridays, where we show you snapshots from the fabulous vacations of fabulous people in the fashion industry. So come with us, take a little breather on this Friday afternoon, and let us whisk you away to a faraway locale.
This week's inaugural Summer Fridays postcard is from the guys of Riviera Club. Friends from Santa Barbara, California, Derek Buse, Joe Sadler, and Greg Ullery are the founders and co-designers of the brand.
This past January, Riviera Club was nominated for GQ/CFDA's Best New Menswear Designer in America award. Check out their most recent vacation—in Southern India—and be on the look-out for some subcontinental references in Riviera Club's next collection.
Greg Ullery: We were playing cricket in Southern India—in the middle of nowhere. Joe and I had never played before. The trip was great, we got to meet such great craftsmen and found inspiration in the country's color palette, from the clothing to the buildings.
