Macy’s and Ryan Seacrest Celebrate Rio de Janeiro with Exclusive Sportswear Capsule Collection: Ryan Seacrest Distinction Rio

The limited-edition capsule will be available in 150 Macy’s stores
and on this summer

NEW YORK–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Macy’s and Emmy-award winning TV/radio host and producer Ryan Seacrest
are collaborating in celebration of the 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio
de Janeiro with an exclusive new fashion collection inspired by the
sights and sounds of the Brazilian destination: Ryan Seacrest
Distinction Rio. The 13-piece assortment features a mixture of
sportswear clothing and accessories that express a stylishly casual,
easy vibe. Ryan Seacrest will be traveling to Rio to host late night
coverage of the Games, and the men’s sportswear capsule collection
represents all the essentials needed for a summer stay in the Brazilian
city, with lifestyle pieces that effortlessly take you from a day on the
beach to a night on the town.

“The idea for the Rio collection was inspired by the upcoming 2016 Rio
Olympic Games which I am lucky enough to be hosting live late-night on
NBC,” said Ryan Seacrest. “The Rio collection is a reflection of the
city’s excitement, spontaneity, vibrant culture, and of course, the
liveliness of the games.”

Shimmering beaches, warm-hued sunsets, and the blue water of the sea all
influenced the color palette and breezy aesthetic of the Rio collection.
Linen and poplin shirts, micropique polos, and chambray shorts are
breathable and offer ways to beat the heat and humidity without
sacrificing style. A color-blocked baseball windbreaker and pique
knitted blazer for relaxed layering, crushable fedora, canvas
espadrille, and casual duffle bag channel the chic and carefree
jetsetter lifestyle.

“Rio de Janeiro is an effervescent city with an incredibly rich culture
steeped in music, art and the celebration of life, making it an
excellent host for the 2016 Summer Olympic Games,” said Durand Guion,
vice president/fashion director of men’s. “The Rio capsule collection
for Ryan Seacrest Distinction embodies this joie de vivre in a coolly
sophisticated way, offering a range of trend-right designs perfect for
discovering everything the famed city has to offer.”

With styles that will have you equally prepared for lounging on the
beaches of Ipanema to partaking in the electrifying samba throughout
Copacabana, Ryan Seacrest Distinction Rio embodies the spirit of summer.
The limited-edition Rio sportswear collection will be exclusively sold
in 150 Macy’s stores and on beginning June 15.
