BRANDS WITH HORSE TRADITIONS
Started in 1837 as a harness and saddle shop, it still produces luxury equestrian goods, including saddles and riding helmets.
Horses appear on its famous silk scarves and saddle stitching is present on many of its handmade leather goods. The logo and the quality of leather also allude to the brand’s horse-related origins.
The Cassegrain family ran a small tobacco dealer shop and made pipes clad in leather in the 1930s and 1940s.
In 1948, the family adopted the Longchamp name, taken from the famous Longchamp racehorse in the Bois de Boulogne area of Paris. The founder used to pass the racecourse on his way to work. The company commissioned illustrator Turenne Chevallereau (whose name coincidentally, includes the French word for horse – cheval) to design a galloping racehorse for its logo shortly after the name change.
3. Ralph Lauren
The Polo Ralph Lauren diffusion brand boasts a logo of a polo player on a horse and blue-blooded equestrian themes resonate in the brand’s many campaign images.
Western country chic and the classy ranch style references are also a mainstay in the brand’s design inspirations.
