A brisk day in the city. A busy day at work. A quick set at the court. An energising workout. The days feel much livelier when we feel relaxed through them! We feel a little like that right now - as we introduce the women’s performance polo. Classy and decidedly athletic, the women’s polo balances sophistication with comfort. It's where performance meets the polo.

Pique the right fabric

Featuring a technical knit with a smooth hand-feel, the polo graduates with successive wears to natural softness. We started with premium Supima knit, and blended it with quick-drying polyester to up the drying rate. A textured fabric with perforations to enhance airflow, the pique knit keeps the polo breathable, while the anti-odour finish keeps the sweat odour at bay. What gives is a polo that stays fresh! For hours!

THE POLO RE-IMAGINED

We took the classic polo and added our own twist with assertive sleeves, a concealed 4 button placket, and a streamlined cut. The result is a polo that pairs and performs well in the city as it does on the gym floor.

P.S.
The Manipur connection :
Tracing the roots of the polo tee.

While we aren't sure of its exact origin, the roots of the polo shirt can be traced to birthplace of Polo: Manipur, India. The traditional polo uniform during this time featured long-sleeve cotton shirts, and to avoid the collars flapping during the game, the players attached buttons to secure them in place. These button downed collar shirts worn by the polo players served as the inspiration for " original polo shirt" designed by Manhattan based brooks brothers in 1896.

In the early 1900's a certain French tennis legend Jean Rene "Lacoste" modified the original polo shirt to short sleeves and cotton pique fabric to inspire the modern day Lacoste polo. Given its roots linked to India, it was only befitting that we give our shot at re-designing the classic polo. And we couldn't be more kicked about it.
