Chin-Chin! Tibi Designs Veuve Clicquot’s Polo Classic T-Shirt

-------

Tibi

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.

Charlotte Olympia x Veuve Clicquot's Love Bubbly

On Saturday, the jet set will descend on the Hamptons to watch Veuve Clicquot’s annual Polo Classic, where ponies, bubbles, and pastels will undoubtedly abound. To commemorate the summer event, Charlotte Olympia’s Charlotte Dellal has teamed up with Veuve to create a champers-themed capsule. Aptly named Lovely Bubbly, the range, which will be available at the designer’s New York store and online this July, comprises such clever, booze-inspired wares as a gilded, bubble-embellished Lucite clutch, black satin sandals garnished with a Champagne flute, a “Cheers” bag, and a pair of the designer’s signature Dolly pumps that are made out of—what else?—gold-speckled cork. “I always enjoy designing with cork,” said Dellal, who offered that her favorite way to drink Champagne is in a large glass over ice, or á la piscine. “It has a natural beauty and functionality.” We do, however, suggest sipping in moderation while donning Dellal’s sky-high platforms—overindulging will likely result in a literal bottoms- (or, rather, soles-) up situation. Ranging from $595 to $995, the collection debuts above, exclusively on Style.com.

The age-old problem: How to hold that icy-cold flute of Champagne? This season’s solution: The new Veuve Clicquot and Marc Jacobs collaborative gloves ($35), which hit Marc Jacobs stores and marcjacobs.com tomorrow. They’re the latest in the Champagne-maker’s annual winter “Clicquot in the Snow” series, which teams with fashion and beauty brands on exclusives (in the past, DKNY and cosmetics guru Fresh) and touts the bubbly as an apres-ski drink. Luckily, no slopes are required. Regrettably, no Champagne is included with purchase.

Horse Play

A bit of bubbly was the relative concept at the second annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic to benefit L.A.’s Will Rogers State Historic Park yesterday. “I’ll probably only make it through a quarter of a glass of Champagne,” co-hostess Rachel Zoe told Style.com. “I have my son with me and day drinking has never been my thing.” New mom Selma Blair also demurred, “I might have a sip, but it’s Daddy’s day to drink.”

On the idyllic sunny Sunday afternoon, tumblers of Veuve weren’t the only intoxicating element: Beneath yellow and white striped tenting, VIPs—including Zoe Saldana, Ali Larter, Sofia Vergara, Jaime King, and Camilla Belle—lounged and watched the polo match while a live ragtime band performed. Waiters and guests, like Decades owner Cameron Silver in his Gucci riding boots and Hermès ascot, were dressed in period garb. The vintage expert advised that “anything with a drop waist or from Marc Jacobs Spring 2012 collection” would be suitable women’s attire for a polo match.

Event host Nacho Figueras, a man with plenty of expertise in proper polo gear, was focused on the philanthropic element of the day. “There used to be 22 polo fields in L.A. and now there’s one,” said the polo player and Ralph Lauren model of the oceanside park, which recently lost almost $500,000 in state funding. “We’re trying to bring that moment back—the special thing is the history and atmosphere here.”
