3 Reasons Why Lotus Romeo Stands Out From the Rest

Background

Lotus Romeo is an equestrian apparel company based out of Budapest, Hungary owned and designed by Éva Torma-Székely. From a young age, Éva followed the fashion industry combined with a passion for horses. While riding, Eva envisioned creating an elegant, functional equestrian apparel bringing her two loves together, and with this vision she started “Lotus Romeo”. Lotus Romeo is one of the highest quality equestrian apparels on the market. From a casual shirt to a tailcoat, the clothing provides to the rider high end fabrics, with affordable pricing.

No. 1 Technical Composition

Lotus Romeo jackets contain 88% Polyamide and 12% elastan and feature a mesh on the inside back. This allows the coat to be both elastic and breathable during the summer heat. Their jackets are also very light weight.  The LR shadbelly weighs under 1 pound compared to other leading brands which weigh from 2 to 4 pounds. The elastan allows the coat to stretch which gives the rider more mobility in the saddle. Also a huge plus …. Lotus Romeo coats are machine washable, no more dry cleaners! The shirts are similar too. They are lightweight, allow free comfortable movement while offering a stylish look for a casual hack or a show. They come in a multitude of colors and designs, including options for Swarovski Crystal buttons. Moving us onto the versatility of Lotus Romeo items.

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.
