The Ride: RIVA

This July, whether your sea of choice is The Adriatic or The Mediterranean, your island Sardegna or Formentera, your ride of choice should come from none other than the venerable Italian house that has been building custom yachts for its clientele since it was established on Lake Iseo in Sarnico, Italy in 1842.

Have a closer look at Riva's storied history, and peruse some of the current and future collections

How to Eat Carbohydrates: A Scientific Approach

Figure it out for yourself, fatty!  Arriviste is a skinny betch.



Crave: The New Gym Bag

Going to the gym is no excuse for having poor taste in accessories. If you're going to perfect your body, look good on the way there.

If you can't afford it, perhaps you should think twice about showing your face at all.




Destination: Cabo de Gata, Andalucia

Much of Andalucia, in the south of Spain, will do no more than throw dust on your white Tod's loafers. Toss those olives out the window.  There is a small stretch on the Eastern side, however, that is worth charting private helicopter or driver to reach.  It is a small natural preserve near the town of Almeria, called Cabo de Gata.

The untouched Mediterranean sea in this region boasts an unusually high algae count & mineral content.  This means it is very, very good for your skin. (Pay attention.)  You won't be pestered by peasants or poor local fisherman, either.  Just you, the sun and the sea.

Pack yourselves a small salad.  You can't possibly eat another piece of jamon wearing that skimpy Hermès bathing suit.  You still need to fit through security at Barajas.


What to Wear: Verbier

Leave the North Face jackets to the plebeians who flock to Vail with their rental skis and day passes. An arriviste wouldn't dream of skiing anywhere so pedestrian. This year, on the powdery slopes of Verbier, Swizerland, we'll be wearing Thom Browne's latest collection.

The Fall line debuted last week in Paris. To view the entire collection, visit:
