Equestrian sports are sometimes overlooked but, with the 2012 London Olympics starting on Friday, Hermès has shown its support by kitting out the French Olympic equestrian team. In tribute to its beginnings as an equestrian accessories specialist, the label was selected to create a riding jacket for the showjumping team. The tailored navy blue jacket has a bright red collar and is made from flexible lightweight fabric to allow for greater freedom of movement. For horse-riding accessories for your own stables, check out Hermès’ latest stable bucket complete with a cowhide handle.
