Team Hester and iconic country clothing brand Lansdown are delighted to announce the forthcoming launch of the Valegro clothing range which will be available from the beginning of July 2016 to coincide with the 2016 Rio Olympics.
Equine superstar Valegro, who is expected to represent Equestrian Team GB in the team and individual dressage competition already has various ranges produced under licence but this is the first comprehensive men’s, women’s and children’s clothing collection that has been designed and manufactured by Lansdown in association with Carl Hester and his team.
To help bring a touch of style and glamour to the launch, Carl Hester enlisted the modelling services of top young dressage riders Chloe Vell and Erin Williams. Williams and Vell, both only 18yrs old have represented the UK on medal winning pony teams and are now shortlisted for young rider teams. They are both professional models represented by top London agencies and in Hester’s words “These two girls are future Olympic team contenders so what better way to launch this collection than to have current and potential medal prospects to model this fantastic range of clothing!”
The collection features the hallmark Blueberry shade in a range of T Shirts, Polo and rugby shirts and hooded sweat tops. Design details are integral to this collection with hidden trims, placement embroidery and applique, subtle union flag emblems and the unmistakeable Gold medal that signifies official Valegro merchandise. The Brazilian flag has also been introduced into the design to celebrate the forthcoming 2016 Olympics. The items are all high quality cotton pique and jersey with retail prices starting from £25.
The collection is available now for pre-order from the Lansdown website, and customers can also expect to view the whole collection on the Lansdown trade stand at various equestrian events around the UK. Enquiries from trade customers are also welcomed as a 2017 wholesale collection is scheduled for launch in the autumn.
