The Amazons

If there’s one trend to keep and eye out for in 2013, it’s amazon fashion.


If there’s one trend to keep and eye out for in 2013, it’s amazon fashion. A myth from antiquity, these female riders are an endless source of inspiration for fashion designers. Like Christian Dior in 2010. Or today with Ann Demeulemeester, Ferragamo, or Lanvin...
So what sparked such passion? How to define the style of these new muses? We turn to the riders for the answers at the 4th edition of the Gucci Paris Masters 5 star show jumping competition.
Horse riding has become a feminine sport. 80% of licensed French pony clubs members are women. Edwin Alexander is Australian and the world’s current number one female horse-jumper.
The main sponsor for the event, Italian brand Gucci, created a new equestrian collection for the riders to wear during competition. Cut with precision, Gucci’s horse riding uniforms remain classic, traditional and above all comfortable.
Designers have revisited time and again the famous riding breeches. Useless in the city, but essential to a rider.
Today female horse riders delicately master a sport that men practiced with ruggedness. Horse riding has become a sensual sport.
Today’s amazons are not the same as those in days gone by, In 2013, dress like a amazon, it’s passion, love, kindness and elegance combined.
