Fashion Week Influences on Equestrian Fashion

It's that time of year again, one of the most important in the fashion diary ‐ the Fashion Weeks from around Europe and New York. The buzz and excitement surrounding the big four; New York, London, Milan and Paris, where the world's top designers showcase their fashion vision for the upcoming seasons, culminates in Milan. The creative visions showcased on the catwalks this Autumn will filter down to the high street for Spring next year. However, let's revisit the trends showcased throughout February/March 2017 for this Autumn and how Equetech have brought these on-trend designs to your equestrian wardrobe?

Duvet Coats

Having featured heavily on the catwalks was the increasingly popular duvet/quilted coats. We've all experienced that feeling of not wanting to leave our cosy bed on a frigid winter morning, or at the very least, wishing we could take our duvet with us when we walk out the door. Thankfully, this Autumn/Winter this is indeed an option. No more dreading the freezing early morning visits to the stables as Equetech's Rowant coat is just like wearing your duvet! This cleverly designed long coat features a practical long zip to the back enabling you to ride, is lightweight with a super warm technical Bio-Down™ insulation, has a detachable faux fur lined hood, zip pockets and our signature bridles printed lining. This incredibly cosy coat is stylish and versatile enough to wear out on the high street, at country events as well as keeping you toasty whilst spending time with your horse- the Rowant definitely is the ultimate winter coat.


Frills are always a designer favourite and are set to remain this Autumn. Shirts adorned with frills soften most outfits, giving a sophisticated yet romantic feel. Equetech's Frilly Show Shirt successfully crosses over from equestrian fashion to high street fashion. An eye catching show shirt enhancing any lead rein or in-hand outfit, this beautiful shirt looks equally superb when teamed with a pair of skinny jeans or leather trousers and a stylish poncho, waistcoat or jacket.


I am saddened that fur seems to be making a comeback, especially when there is so much quality and cruelty free faux fur, where you'd be hard pressed to tell the difference between faux and the real thing. Here at Equetech, we do not believe that fashion should involve cruelty, therefore we will never use real fur on any of our products. Our ever popular Faux Fur Headband, again successfully bridges high street and equestrian fashion adding a touch of cruelty free luxury to any outfit.

Luxurious Fabrics

Autumn wouldn't be "Fashionable Autumn" without luxurious fabrics, and what shouts luxury more than a well cut garment in a beautiful tweed. Renowned for our tweeds, this year we've introduced to our Autumn/Winter Collection the stylish and easy to wear tweed poncho, a timeless and elegant garment which can be worn by all body types, shapes and sizes. Tweed waistcoats such as the Hambleden, Marlow and Wheatley are beautifully tailored making them ideal fashion /equestrian cross over pieces. Our tweed ponchos and tweed waistcoats look simply stunning when worn with a roll neck/frilly shirt, skinny jeans and fashion boots ‐ you can't beat well-tailored tweed.
