Ruff, indeed! Rodiney Santiago has released his own line of swimear, RUF•ROD, aligned with Rufskin (shoot locale: his homeland of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil), branded as Sungas. The line includes solid color blocks, mesh and patterns with a color palette allegedly hand selected by Santiago and Rufskin designer Hubert Pouches. Rod notes, "I was heavily involved with the fit of this line to ensure its Brazilian authenticity." The suits are named after cities from the Atlantic coast of Brazil: Angra, Lagoa and Busios. The RUF•ROD line will be available this summer.
Good thing Rodiney is moving forward with signature merch, since Logo has put The A List: New York out of its misery after two bitchy seasons. The show's Rod & Ryan Nickulas will be participating @ the Time Warner Cable car for this Sunday's NYC Pride March. Ooh la la! *
