In the exciting February issue’s TRENDBOOK we explore the grand and exclusive equestrian world. This is a sport known by many, but enjoyed by those with deep pockets. The unique style has been taken straight from the showground and onto the catwalks with minimal changes. Hermes is one of the brands that has successfully introduced this style, which is effortless and comfortable, but also makes a very bold statement.

Looking at the above image, it’s evident that the style is targeted at the crème de la crème of society – the affluent and auspicious. Leading brands such as Hermes, Ralph Lauren and Burberry have produced some of the finest items of clothing, ranging form accessories and footwear, all of which were inspired by the opulent equestrian life style.
