The equestrian style (horse-riding fashion) has inspired the fashion world and numerous brands over many decades. But, polo lovers are just apart from the rest and brought the symbol of polo into the fashion world.
Bianca Verneuil and Clément Gosset are those polo lovers. They felt being polo players, they belonged to a special club. An international club and they wanted the world to know without having to tell. Their social media feeds are bountiful with their pictures. They loved telling about them (to anyone who would listen) and the latest battlefield (polo matches) stories of riding and hooking or scoring the perfect goal.
At the end of the day, if asked why so? Because they are proud of them. The intention both had was to let the world know they had a polo bug in them. They believed, when you meet a fellow poloist in a crowd, there is always a camaraderie feel and a mutual connection between them.
Both Bianca Verneuil and Clément Gosset clearly understand this and most of the polo lover’s crowd was with them. They decided to create something specially designed for polo lovers, something they could wear every day and show their love for the sport. This inspiration gave birth to the Vernet Paris Polo Mallet Bracelet.
According to Bianca, they pondered over many ideas and finally stopped at the Mallet. The Polo Mallet is not only the most important sports accessory for a polo player, but it’s beautiful as well. They believe wearing a polo mallet bracelet is the best way to show your passion for the polo world. Bianca and Clément are avid polo players of whom Bianca considers herself an amateur. Clément has a handicap of 3 and loves to zoom down on the polo fields of Deauville and Chantilly.
Today they have customers from across the globe and ship their bracelets to wherever a polo lover wants. Remembering with a smile on her face, Bianca says the first order they acquired was from the USA. This made them realize they are not the only lovers of polo in the world who want to show our love for the sport. They were happy when they received orders for the bracelets from everywhere, but loved to export to Argentina, especially Palermo, Hurlingham, and Tortugas, famous polo places.
A bit on the world-famous bracelet, they began using different materials for the mallets, so each bracelet was made differently, but most famous is the silver polo mallet bracelet.
How is the bracelet made?
To begin with, a 3D concept drawing is made. It’s not easy to make the drawing as it’s the base and needs to be perfect! So, professional people were appointed for the drawing. They talked about what they wanted, showed them some pictures, showed them the real mallets, and showed how it’s used so they could understand the motions.
Once the 3D design was ready, a mould was created. The mould is tested 2 to 3 times and sometimes even more until satisfaction from the result is achieved. Then, the polo mallet gets the finishing touches by engraving the details like the design, logo, and the grip. Then the last step, polishing to perfection.
Each bracelet is tested for a month, daily, and everywhere. They play polo with it, take care of the horses… overall, go by their daily routine! And, if no problem is seen with the product and all proof sheets pass the test, the mould is validated.
Once the validated mould is ready, the production of the polo mallet braceletbegins. Then they decided to try out a new concept- a mallet bracelet made of resin. One that has a funky and colorful look, ideal for long days at the beach for kids and adults alike.
