Even the ever-dapper Ryan Seacrest needs to let loose and hit the beach. Though, this summer he’ll be catching rays while on the job…as the late night host of The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio! And while we love his super slick, suited up style, we are beyond excited to see him kick back in his new vacay-ready collection Ryan in Rio. See what he has to say about it…
mBLOG: We know you’re headed to The 2016 Olympic Games in Rio this summer. Do you have a favorite event?
RS: Swimming — never disappoints. Always a nail biter. The USA has a lot of strong competitors that are vying for medals.
mBLOG: We’re used to seeing you rocking a suit or tux. How did you come up with the looks for this line?
RS: The idea for the Rio collection was inspired by my upcoming travel to Rio. It’s a reflection of the city’s excitement and vibrant culture. We wanted the pieces to be fun and to have both texture and color.
mBLOG: What’s one way to describe the Ryan in Rio looks?
RS: Easy and effortless. The capsule has a dozen or so items that are great for casual summer looks: polos, shorts, a knit blazer that holds up really well traveling.
mBLOG: What’s your favorite item from the collection?
RS: I’d have to say the color blocked wind breaker. It’s an easy way to make any ensemble pop, and it’s perfect for a night on the beach.
mBLOG: On vacation, would we find you poolside or at the beach?
RS: If I could, I’d be at or near the ocean every day. There are a lot of great pools by the beach!
mBLOG: Name your fave emoji to send while you’re on vacation.
RS: It depends. At quick glance, I have a feeling I’ll be using the palm tree and wave emojis while in Rio!
