While Paris and London Fashion Weeks were touting the stylish return of the blues – from slate to ultramarine – Kimberly Herslow and Benjamin Albright were recognized by popular equestrian fashion boutique, ShowChic, and Italian equestrian fashion designer Equiline, for equally cool blue- and grey-toned turnouts for their horse jogs during Dressage at Devon, September 24-29, in Pennsylvania. Albright presented his Grand Prix partner, the Jazz-bred Dutch Warmblood Toscano, in crisp cream khakis and powder blue jacket and shirt, accented with a grey-to-blue striped tie and clinching ShowChic's Best Turnout decision hands down with his white gloves as a finishing touch.{C}“He was just turned out beautifully,” said Michelle Hundt, who was at Devon along with Kelly Molinari of Equiline, to personally present $100 gift certificates and Waffle blankets to both smartly dressed riders. ShowChic also hosted a champagne toast during the jog at Devon to celebrate the beginning of the prestigous international dressage show.
Earning sideline coo's of “So chic,” and “Such a complete look,” to also earn ShowChic Best Turnout recognition was Kimberly Herslow, who jogged her Prix St. Georges Hanoverian, Rosmarin (by Rosentanz) in a shimmering grey ensemble Hundt praised as a “chic complement to a dark horse.”
Working together, Show Chic and Equiline reinforced the importance of appearance and high fashion etiquette at dressage shows by bringing attention to the jog during Devon. The long standing tradition of trend-setting fashion within the equestrian lifestyle is both fun and functional in the jog, which is why they are dedicated to recognizing well dressed riders. Equiline, which only recently began importing and distributing their lines in the US, is working closely with ShowChic to carry and promote the brand. All fashion-forward equestrians who attend Devon will have the opportunity to get a first glimpse at these exciting new Italian lines.
