Lotus Romeo : A fresh approach to riding clothing

Lotus Romeo Shadbelly in Blue

In a market that is glutted by designs that look identical, Lotus Romeo is like a breath of fresh air. Daring to be different and not another take on the standard Italian fare, Lotus Romeo is art and beauty applied to equestrian apparel.

If you have not noticed already, there is no dearth of Italian brands that crowd the current equestrian riding market. There are so many of them now that it is hard to tell one’s designs apart from the other. In fact, the overlap between different Italian brands is increasing by the day. With no game-changing ideas, the seasonal collections from these various brands is just a “wash-rinse-repeat” cycle.

Lotus Romeo could not have entered the scene at a better time. The brand and its creator Eva, make no attempt whatsoever at imitating the current trends of equestrian fashion. Instead, she started from scratch. It can be difficult to start from zero, but if anyone can do it, it is Eva.

Elegance in Equestrian Clothing

What does “elegance” mean for equestrian attire? Pictures speak a thousand words, so we will let the pictures do the explaining.

Custom Show Shirts and Casual Technical Riding Polo Shirts

If you are looking for a unique look that is truly different from the run-of-the-mill Italian apparel, Lotus Romeo fits the bill. This applies to any piece of riding wear offered by Lotus Romeo. Whether it be a casual riding shirt or a show shirt, short jacket or a dressage shadbelly, each piece can be customized to your individual sense of style.

Custom Dressage Shadbelly

The Natasha Shadbelly by Lotus Romeo is the top selling shadbelly in Wellington. There are quite a few reasons behind the quick ascension to the #1 spot. Chief among these reasons is the unique styling offered by Lotus Romeo. Then again, not every dressage apparel brand is as accommodating and flexible as Lotus Romeo. Most of the other equestrian apparel brands offer an all-or-none approach. That means you either accept all their options as-is. There is no middle ground. As an example, consider that a certain tailcoat comes with an optional double piping. Say you wanted just a single piping instead of double piping. That would not be a possibility. This is where Lotus Romeo shines. The brand has a nimbleness and flexibility that lets you be the sole designer of your custom dressage shad or short jacket.

No longer are you limited by style options dictated and written in stone. With Lotus Romeo, you can request changes and most likely, they will be accepted. Even more exciting is the fact that the range of options is evolving to meet the demands of the riders. Unlike other popular shadbellies that are on the market,  new options are constantly being added.

Here are the options to customize:

  • Base Color of the Shad
  • Color of the Piping
  • Color of the Collar
  • Color of the Points
  • Color of the Buttons
  • Short Torso vs Regular Torso
  • Sleeve and Length Adjustment

Tailoring Options

Lotus Romeo even lets you tailor your shad by making minor adjustments to the length and sleeve length. You can even select between a Regular Torso and Short Torso fit. With so many different options available, it is clear why Lotus Romeo has become a favorite for custom dressage shadbelly.

Step 2 Select the colors for the collar and points:

Starting with 2015, you no longer have to pick the same color for the collar and points. You can mix and match. Two fabric choices are available: Alcantara and Satin (new). As an example, you can select Satin Blue for the Collar. For the Points, you can select Sky Blue in Alcantara to show the contrast. Lots of different unique combinations allow you to create your own custom and personalized shadbelly.

Equiline Cadence Shadbelly! The choice of fashionista rider

Ok I am back from New york after a brief vacation where i took my son for origami convention which is held at FIT in NY.

All the creative people get together and work on making various projects with paper!

Walking around FIT, NY i looked around the  classes and could see sewing machines and all what is needed to make the riding apparel.

Petra is one of those few bold people in USA who wants to look different.

While at ROLEX in Kentucky  she called me for Equiline Shadbelly that she saw on our website.

Petra is looking sharp in her new Equiline Shadbelly

Anyway, I did not have the Cadence model in size 44 in black so i sent her Amble in Navy in size 44.

She was quick to try it on and return with a request to special order Equiline Shadbelly in Black in cadence model in size 44.

Which of course she needs it before her big day at show.

Why Equiline Shadbelly only?

Why not some other readily available Shadbelly?

Because Equiline Shadbelly is designed and manufactured in Italy.

The land of creative people!

Tailored to fit Equiline shadbelly is made of technical fabric X-Cool Evo, Equiline Shadbelly  is extremely elastic,breathable and water repellent.

Equiline shadbelly grants the highest freedom of movements,Fitted to perfection for the highest elegance and comfort during the show.

Equiline Shadbelly has a new technical concept of adjustable weights on the tail in order to change them according to your necessity and take them off for machine washing the Equiline Shadbelly.

Yes you read it right machine washable Bye Bye Dryclean!

Did i mention the buttons are all Swarovski stones on equiline shadbelly with detailed piping around the collar.

Do you know what is the other name of Shadbelly in Europe?

Guess and leave your answer in the comments!
