After a brutal winter and virtually nonexistent spring, it’s safe to say this year’s seventh-annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic, set for May 31, will mark the official warm-weather revelry. Each year, New Yorkers, athletes, and celebs alike hop a ferry to Liberty State Park for their chance to wear a cotton sundress (or the menswear equivalent), swill champagne at 10 a.m., and watch Nacho Figueras conquer the field. To the uninitiated, it sounds like a scene from The Great Gatsby. Even if you don’t have a ticket (they sold out almost immediately), you can still get a taste of the experience with the event’s official T-shirt. This year, Tibi designer Amy Smilovic created a limited-edition white tee with a splash of canary yellow paint. A first look debuts exclusively here on Style.com. “After our Spring ’14 collection, the paint splatter quickly became one of our iconic prints,” Smilovic said. “A lot of editors wore the full skirts to fashion week, so we wanted to do a twist on that and re-create the print in Veuve Clicquot’s signature yellow.” The T-shirt will be available on-site the day of the match, but you can order yours online at tibi.com starting May 7. Tees cost $48 each, with all proceeds benefiting the Council of Fashion Designers of America. (Smilovic has been a member for years.)
While Smilovic admits she is far from a polo expert, she already has the perfect ensemble in mind for the big event. “My team is killing me because I keep pulling things from Spring ’15! But I just want everything to be crisp shirting material. I’ll be wearing something in poplin, like a full poplin skirt or a crop top.” A glimpse at what’s to come next season? Perhaps. For now, we’re happy sporting these easy tees—while sipping a glass (or two) of Veuve, of course.
The Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic will take place on May 31 at Liberty State Park, New Jersey. Tibi for Veuve Clicquot T-shirts will be available on-site, and on tibi.com beginning May 7.
NOWNESS has produced a short film, directed by Matthew Donaldson and starring polo stud (and face of RL) Nacho Figueras. The video goes online on NOWNESS.com tomorrow; we’ve got a sneak peek at the action behind the scenes at the Hamptons shoot.
Tom Ford is taking his A Single Man to Venice. The designer’s first film, which he directed and produced (what, no starring role, Tom?), will debut at the festival in September. Try and figure out how you can be there and in New York for RTW at the same time. [WWD]
Garance Doré is going to French Vogue, definitely online and peut-être in print. [WWD]
