The Riviera Collection by The Blonde Abroad

The Shades
Today, we’re proud to release our first collaboration with The Blonde Abroad! Kiersten worked with the Blenders design team to craft two new styles guaranteed to get you FeelinGood, no matter where you’re at in the world. A lot of success in life depends on your point of view. With this collab, we invite you to “See the World Through Rose Colored Lenses”, and follow YOUR passions, whatever they may be.

The Riviera Rosé shades are inspired by the pebbled beaches, sunshine and rosé wine found throughout the French Riviera. The Riviera Maya shades are inspired by Mexico's Caribbean coastline. Did someone say margaritas?!
"I want to share my passion for travel, my love of experiencing new cultures, and my mission to help support non-profit organizations. You are never too old, too busy, or too blonde to pause what you’re doing and take some time to follow your dreams. May you never settle for a life that’s anything short of extraordinary!"
"I established The Blonde Abroad when I stopped living a life bound by limitations and decided to follow my heart and live a life without borders." - Kiersten Rich
The Story
Blenders Eyewear was founded as an experiment in lifestyle design; Following our passion down an uncharted road. For us, that meant designing cool stuff, enjoying a vibrant, active lifestyle, and traveling as much as we could. When we discovered fellow San Diegan, Kiersten Rich, it was Peanut Butter meeting Jelly.

Kiersten launched “The Blonde Abroad” in 2011 as a multilevel passion project, and now travels nine months out of the year to over 50 countries, writing, telling stories, volunteering, and exploring. By every measure, she is absolutely KILLING it! Like most stories though, her success didn’t come easy. Kiersten left a cushy job in corporate finance (a.k.a. 100 hour work weeks) to volunteer, travel and reset priorities. For years she lived out of a backpack on less than $50 dollars a day, growing her brand and learning along the way.
