The Horsey Set

    In honor of the 75th anniversary of the prestigious Piazza di Siena horse-jumping show held annually in May, Loro Piana has created a special-edition version of its best-selling Horsey jacket, which was originally designed in 1992 for the Italian equestrian team to wear during the summer Olympics in Barcelona, Spain. The updated jacket is produced in a new Microlight S3 stretch cloth treated with the Biella, Italy-based company’s patented Storm System technology that renders it both wind and rain resistant. The $1,575 blazer also comes with the owner’s name and purchase date signed on a specially designed interior label that identifies the yellow suede-trimmed navy jacket as the signature style statement of Italy’s most prestigious international equestrian event.  (212.980.7961, www.loropiana.com)
