    Stable Manners
    Designers Saddle Up for Fall
    July 1, 2004 – Canter culture is a favorite source of fashion inspiration, and the fall collections were rife with equestrian references. Ann Demeulemeester roughed up the jodhpur with some dark Night Porter-style decadence. For his debut at the horse-worshipping house of Hermès, Jean Paul Gaultier sent out top hats and full skirts suitable for latter-day equestriennes. Helmut Lang pinned thick, swishing tails on pumps, bangles, and sandals to make his point. The horse-blanket striped ponchos at Chloé and the hand-painted horse-head leather jacket at Luella, meanwhile, deserve a winner's circle all their own.

    I don't really like the Helmut Lang stuff- but the Gucci and Stella McArtney pieces you posted were great.

    I'm not thrilled with these outfits specifically, but have always liked the look overall. This was from the D Squared show. :yuk:

    when i saw the Hermes runway looks it took me back to the Micheal Kors Fall 2001 RTW show. It always has been one of my favorite shows of all. I love the equestrian looks!

    Overall I think I could do without the Equestrian inspired stuff.

    I oddly like it. I think I've always been a sucker for the more country club set look...but then again I'm always changing my mind :lol:

    Regardless I say great trendspotting Amelie and I agree though I'm not sure this look has mainstream appeal other than the tucking jeans into boots thing.

    i love the equestrian look. it was in a few years ago and i fell in LOVE with the prada saddle bags. ralph lauren's collection then was fabulous as well..

    i love the looks from gucci, stella, and DKNY. i also loved the luella boots. that's one of my favorite looks from the equestrian look, the high boots over pants.

    The only one I liked was the Gucci one, the rest is just not for my taste.

    Aww I love this look. I don't think I'd be able to pull of the jodhpurs with boots, though. I think jodhpurs with heels would look great.
