Before we say good bye to summer and hello to Fashion’s Night Out and Fashion Week we thought we’d give you one last look at fashion and the International Polo Club of Colts Neck. While Irene seems to have abruptly ended their season, on Sunday August 21 storming winds and rain did not stop the competition, the party, nor the parade of great looks.
Instead of a full match, Simon Garber, founder of the IPCoCN regrouped with a polo shoot out to benefit Work to Ride, a nonprofit that provides Philadelphia disadvantaged youngsters with constructive equine activities. What a great idea and great kids who attended.
Present once again, International Polo Star, Nacho Figueras (remember this when you see him at the Ralph Lauren Polo store on Prince St. Thurs. night) scored the first goal and posed for pictures with spectators of all ages with his wife, the model Delfina Blaquier graciously looking on.
The fashionista polo fans were out in full force in spite of the weather – maxis, midis, flirty frocks and those fabulous wedgies paraded around displaying a wonderful casual chic, and emphasized that this definitely proved to be the Summer of the Hat.
The Garber family is expert at pulling together a crowd proving that when you’re involved with the “sport of kings” you best have a royal attitude when it comes to head gear!
