If there is one animal which can get people to dress up, it definitely has to be the horse. However, unlike the races which consist of fascinators, towering heels and uncomfortable tight cocktail dresses and suits, Polo is the more relaxed smart casual equestrian event which oozes elegance and old-school class.
Thanks to esteemed polo player, Janek Gazecki, who founded the Landrover Polo in the City Series, Australians now have a reason to dress up in a chic casual way more often.
There are 5 iconic signature urban polo events, which bring the glamour of polo right into the cities at our doorstep. What makes these events so exciting is they run on a smaller field making it a much more interactive way for guests to get up and close to the action. Boring it ain’t.
Urban polo is the largest polo series in the world, delivering 9 fabulous events across Australia.
The other Urban Polo events in the program that deliver the famous polo events to our iconic seaside resorts onto our beaches include:-
- January 13, 2018 – Taylors Polo by the Sea at Palm Beach
- February 25 – Pol Roger Beach Polo – Glenelg Beach
- June 2 – Ferrari Polo by The Sea Gold Coast on the Gold Coast
- April 7 – Polo by the Vines in the Hunter Valley
Land Rover Polo in the City series is also held in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane, Perth and Adelaide ensuring no one misses out.
Fashion also plays a big of these events with guests encouraged to dress accordingly. Think elegant sun hats, flowing dresses and pants for the ladies. Excess flesh is not appropriate. Less is definitely more in a casually chic way. Channel Olivia Palermo vibes, not the Kardashian’s.
For the men, think dapper hats, trousers, suit jackets. There is also a Fashion on the Field for both the men and women so make sure you look sharp.
Fashion is also reflected with sponsors who include Politix for men’s fashion at the Land Rover Polo in the City and Helen Kaminski is also a sponsor for hats. Also on board is Hugo Boss for women and the much loved The Daily Edited for accessories.
It’s a day of great fun; think french champagne, polo, friends, celebrities, Land Rover’s and good looking men on horses, what more could you want?
