I have noticed a definite trend lately in the collections from many equestrian apparel companies: lace.
Aztec Diamond has it on breeches
and a shirt
Valentine Equine clearly loves lace and has several shirts with it, ranging from more basic
to much more bold
while Fior da Liso‘s Lacie shirt is more subtle.
Even bigger companies like Equine Couture
and Cavallo have items with lace.
There are also lace stock ties, ranging from a whole lot of lace like this one from Dameron
to just a hint of lace like this one from ShowChic
How about a show coat with lace on the collar like this one from Kentucky?
or lace boot socks, like these from Ariat
who also has a lace vest
You can even get a lace HELMET from KEP!
What do you think of the lace trend… would you wear any of these items? Personally I’m a huge fan of lace in general and would definitely like to have some of these things, but others are a bit too much even for me. I’d love to see more companies play around with lace on breeches… maybe just a little touch of it on the pockets? Especially if it was combined with leather – maybe lace backing on the pocket area and leather piping on the pocket edge? Someone get me a sewing machine. And fabric. And a person that can sew. And a designer.
