On Location: Riviera Magazine

November 1st, 2012

This autumn, ViX designer Paula Hermanny was recently featured in Riviera Magazine’s Fall Fashion issue.  A publication with Modern Luxury, Riviera is the premiere luxury lifestyle magazine of San Diego. 

As a local authority on fashion, Paula shared the design inspiration behind the latest Cruise 2013 collection and the trends captivating her jet-set customer.  She also emphasized the brand’s deepest plunge into resortwear to date.

“Our resort wear takes the ViX woman throughout her entire day: from a bikini on the beach to a cover-up at lunch and then into a long dress for cocktail hour,” Paula explains.

On location in her La Jolla home, Paula selected bright dresses from BCBG and Diane von Furstenberg to wear for her Riviera photoshoot.  She attests that statement colors are right on trend but keeps her look classic with small accessories that complement rather than compete. 

“I love to play with colors but I also like to make sure it looks sophisticated,” Paula says of her pairings: a red orange BCBG high-low number with turquoise drop earrings and a kelly green dress with gold and carnelian jewelry.

Her favorite look as we head into the New Year? 

“A beautiful, strong, solid color in a simple, flowing silhouette, like the red Lana dress from our Cruise 2013 collection.”
