Held at Guards Polo Club on July 29, this match marked the first time that ladies’ teams competed on this legendary day, with The Swarovski England Ladies besting the USA for the Diamond Jubilee Trophy. The Coronation cup traces its roots back to the early 1900s, bringing together some of the best Polo players in the world in honor of English Royalty.
The England Ladies team was presented with bespoke helmets for the match, crafted in a collaboration with renowned milliner Emily Baxendale of Emily London. The designer hand-embellished the red rose design with precision-cut Swarovski crystals. Baxendale commented: “Working with Swarovski enabled us to combine the core of conventional millinery with a new and exciting medium. Introducing the luminosity of the crystal element added depth and texture to the design, enriching the colors and enhancing the look.”
As a proud sponsor of the England Ladies Team for the 2017 season, Swarovski seeks to celebrate amazing women players in their craft, whose strength, grace and precision reflect the values of the storied house.
