The Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo 2018

Val de Vie is surrounded by the mountains and vineyards of Paarl-Franschhoek valley, and is one of the most esteemed polo estates in the world.

The lush grounds will play host to one of the most influential polo events of the year, the Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo 2018. The Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo Cape Town has successfully integrated itself as one of the country’s most distinguished events and is proudly found amongst the Veuve Clicquot’s international polo calendar, so it is sure to not to be missed.

This A-list affair is one of the highlights of the South African social calendar with its tickets being among the most coveted. Celebrities, media personalities and the crème de la crème of South Africa’s local social scene will be dressed to the nines in designer gear.

The 2018 theme of ‘Cape Town Summer’ will have guests basking in the beautiful African summer sun with clear skies and a light breeze, which we know are envied by many around the world.

This year’s theme is an ode to the best in Cape Town living; flowing Champagne, great food and beautiful people dressed in the best local and international brands.

The Dress Code

The Veuve Clicquot masters insist that all guests adhere to dress code, so do make sure you are dressed appropriately. Come prepared for the warm summer sun with a chic polo summer look.  La Martina has exactly what you’re looking for as it has its own long history of polo chic and celebrated summer fashion.

Here are some tips:

Keep it light. Try going for brighter colours, whites and pastels tend to reflect the heat from making its way toward you. Parallel to that, try going for more agile materials as they will breathe and allow air to flow. You can pull off the chic but casual look with a coulourful polo shirt, matched with a pair of slim-fit chinos and a jacket.

Fit is everything: The tailored look is definitely still in. Wearing a tailored jacket and pants gives you that masculine silhouette and accentuates your natural shape.

Comfort is key: Since the Polo is an outdoor event, make sure you are comfortable with either driving shoes (loafers), or soft leather brogues. Complement the shoes with the right belt with a lovely buckle.

Don’t forget to accessorise: Accessories often add character to an outfit. The right accessories will allow you to add your personality to your look. Start with the essentials; a good pair of sunglasses and a time piece. You can then build on that with a linen embroidered hat, pocket square, lapel pin, colourful socks and a beautiful silk tie. Be bold and have fun with your look.

With a solid 7-year track record, we are confident that the 2018 Veuve Clicquot Masters Polo will once again be one of the country’s social highlights, with a powerful platform for luxury brands to engage with key audiences and an outstanding day of networking and socializing.
