This is confirmed by Nicole Fouquè, fashion journalist and trendsetter, who has been attending stables since she was a child (her father was one of the leading representatives of this sport and instructor) competing in horse competitions with her broodmares Leonarda and Whitney; ” I live with passions and the fashion one is the other lifeblood of my existence. I know many designers who ride horses, for example the stylist Vivetta, who has a past as an Amazon and soon dreams of getting back in the saddle. For my part, I go from a fashion week to a riding school … saying with irony going from the stars to the stables!”. Valentina D’Amato , after ten years spent in the Moschino style office, left everything to go and live outside Milan and cultivate her passion for horse riding by launching herself into the project “Le grenier de vivi” , bags in vintage fabrics that recall the school satchels, with the logo represented by a rocking horse.

The pr and socialite Ursula Giustina Crespi has also made a personal style of it; “I rode a horse when I was eighteen and I have never gone down since then, involving my whole family today! I like to wear jackets made by a tailor of yesteryear, with classic British cuts, but having fun having them lined with fabrics with unexpected patterns and super contemporary colors or combining them with designer gilets. I indulge myself with Hermes accessories, I look for particular plastron pins, from niche jewelers or in London’s vintage shops. If there is a horse nearby, it does not escape us, even if printed on a fabric! ”. In Verona, where Fieracavalli, the largest international exhibition dedicated to the sector, was held in October 2017, there are many VIPs who have dedicated themselves in the equestrian world. Andrea Bocelli , Antonella Clerici, Fabrizio Frizzi, Nicole Berlusconi, Natalia Estrada, Vittorio Sgarbi, are just some of the names of the characters who have not been able to resist the fascination and passion for horses.
