Colleccion Privada: England meets Argentina
Get your fix of South American vitality as bright colors invade the emblematically English tailoring tradition. Designed as a result of the metamorphosis of both Anglo-saxon and Argentinian styles, the La Martina “Coleccion Privada” capsule collection delivers the formality of Savile Row tailoring traditions in an array of revitalizing South American colors to celebrate both cultures’ unifying love for the game of Polo. Expect formal jackets mellowed out by Latin styles, straight lines making way for vivid floral textures, that speak to the spirit of Abierto the Argentine Polo Open Championship marked as a celebration for all.
Royal Box: The tartans take over
This special capsule collection is dedicated to those who truly want to dress to impress. Inspired by a dress code designated for the Royal Family, the “Royal Box” capsule collection by La Martina celebrates the tartan kilt in all of its glory. Imagine a fresh palette of natural colors set off against a Scottish tartan while stylistically referencing the military flavor that takes over the entire collection – all designed for the prestigious Guards Polo Club Collection. Traditional English navy blues are replaced by a mélange of natural shades of camel to gray. Buttons and graphics beautifully represent the English rose that appears on the Royal Coat of Arms of the United Kingdom.
La Martina: For Maserati
This stylish pairing couldn’t be more perfect. Today, the partnership between La Martina and Maserati is instantly recognizable, with both brands being protagonists in the greatest polo events in the world. With the launch of this latest capsule collection, a special shirt was produced to mark the 100th anniversary of the House of the Trident. Emphasizing Maserati’s sporty personality with its ‘tecno-race’ ID, the La Martina capsule collection for Maserati selects materials that heighten the aerodynamics of the shapes, such as soft-shell or breathable neoprene or technical sweaters with water repellent properties, for instance. The collection is also made from Pima, a Peruvian variety of cotton with extra long flock, which makes the collection even more absorbent and durable. The absolute must-have from this capsule collection includes the polo-zip with a medallion logo in embossed silicone, commemorating the centenary of the House of the Trident.
La Martina is located at The Avenues (2259 7563) and 360 Mall (2530 9989).
