Style: Back in the Saddle

 In Feature, Style

Defined by riding breeches, riding boots and blazers that border on show coats, the equestrian trend takes the reins this winter.


Right out of the gate, it was clear that designers were riding high on the idea of riding horseback in Fall/Winter 2010or at least hyping the associated uniform. Models trotted many a February runway in jodhpurs, hacking jackets and redingotesthe likes of which weve come to expect from Herms, Gucci and Salvatore Ferragamo, but it was John Galliano who seemed to lead the pack this lap around. The ever-dramatic designer set the tone for his heavily equestrian-themed Dior collection with a horses “neigh” that played at its shows commencement. The sound acted like a starting pistol, launching a season of stores stocked with saddle bags, breeches and all things horse-bittenand igniting fashion devotees unbridled love for stable-fitting styles. Giddyup!
