A polo match is all about looking classy while enjoying an exciting game. The tourney can be complicated, and dressing for it—even more so, especially considering the temperature, the terrain, and the dress code.
But you don’t have to sacrifice comfort for style, or vice versa. Take it from London Barbara—a polo-inspired clothing brand that exudes class, comfort, and elegance.
Currently with two product designs for scarves for both polo and polca dots, London Barbara’s items add instant polish to any look, no matter how basic it is. “Our brand’s motto is ‘elegance is attitude’,” says Elizabeth Reid, founder and creative director of the polo-inspired clothing brand.
“I have always wanted my own luxury-designed clothing brand. And luckily, due to the connection that I have with horses and polo, I decided this is where I should begin,” she shares. The mom of two beautiful girls is an avid horse rider and a regular polo and polocrosse player—an activity that she and her husband Luke Reid enjoy together.
Combined with her innate passion for the sport, being an entrepreneur and a garment designer inspires her work and gives her so much joy.
Elizabeth admits that, just like other businesswomen, she faced the inevitable struggles in putting up her line. “The most challenging part was answering, ‘Where do I start?’ and ‘What is the process?’ I put myself out there and spoke with a lot of entrepreneurs that led me in the right direction,” the designer explains. But with the support of her family and friends, she was able to overcome it all.
The brand is focused on quality rather than the quantity. “The silk is 100% mulberry—the finest silk in the world. The artwork is hand-drawn, and it captures the sport of kings, polo. It is a family-owned business, so we can assure you that each item is made with love and hand-finished,” she beams.
“The interesting part is how the silk is made,” Elizabeth further adds. “The silkworms of the Bombyx Mori Moth are fed only mulberry leaves, producing this amazing product.”
Their stunning silk scarves are perfect for all polo ladies. “They are so soft and a great size that can be worn in multiple ways,” she proudly shares. When it comes to timeless clothing investments, specifically catering to all polo lovers, London Barbara’s garments are a smart choice, signified for their versatility and ability to suit any season.
