Neon pink lights, 2 shiny Ferraris and Riviera Magazine hostesses greeted the guests at 7th Anniversary of Riviera Magazine, one of the SD Polo Club‘s favorite media partners! Held at the Museum of Contemporary Art in charming Little Italy, 2 of the exhibit rooms were open for the guests to peruse. The main attraction was a vibrant room with animated floral art projected on the walls, created by Jennifer Steinkamp.
Riviera had a DJ spinning electic jams, 3 food stations to reflect the trio of local chefs that make up Campine Catering, and a full bar specializing in craft cocktails.
Neiman Marcus stole the show with a twist on the typical fashion show. Models showed off the new fall fashions on glowing cubes, slowing circulating all of the season favorites. We saw a lot of purple and deep red, furs, colored tights, blocked patterns, animal and paisley prints, plus sequins and shine!
Snake Oil Cocktail Company served up an array of elixers, from the sweet, celebratory “Birthday Cake” made with Pink Pigeon Rum, sweet cream and fruit to the refreshing cucumber, gin and ginger cocktail. Snake Oil is a San Diego based company. We had the pleasure of meeting the owners at a small farm located just behind the Polo Club.
Campine Catering hosted three food stations spotlighting each chef: Brian Malarky of Burlap and Searsucker, Anthony Splurgin formerly of Waters Catering, and Antonio Friscia of Stingaree. WOW! We can’t wait to attend more events with the Campine trio.
Publisher, Jessica Cline, and Marketing Manager, Stefanie Leatherman were gracious hosts. Big thank you to Riviera Magazine! The San Diego Polo Club had a fantastic time!

Flirty in Prints
If you desire to be the center of attention then have fun with a little pattern play. This flirty little number by Diane von Furstenberg is for those of you eager to draw eyes. Just think fresh, sophisticated and soft silhouettes to create a light and airy look for summer.

The familiar A-line is a timeless silhouette which remains relevant season after season. Reminiscent of 1960’s glamour, the conservative yet delicate style continues to be a polo wear staple.
Chloe Spring RTW 2011
The sartorial set can’t go wrong with tailored, classic style. Masculine detail done right can be surprisingly seductive. Make a powerhouse statement with an androgynous take on polo wear and go for an inspired ‘70s sophisticated yet understated romper. Deliver a dramatic finish with a red sultry pout.

The ever popular sheer trend takes a refined, clean and minimalist approach yet with an ultra femme detail. Layer transparent separates to keep your look interesting. Even add an androgynous twist and tuck a sheer tank or blouse into a pair of wide leg trousers. Or try pairing with a pencil skirt in an unpredictable color for a powerhouse statement. Complete the look with oversized shades to add a hint of glamour.

Don’t worry gentlemen, we haven’t forgotten about you. The sartorial set can’t go wrong with a tailored, fresh and classic style. Keep your palette light or neutral and opt for a streamlined pair of slacks, polo and a crisp summer blazer. Take a cue from Lacoste RTW Spring 2011 and keep your overall look polished yet casual.
