Pull up your boots, jump in the saddle and ride in style with the best equestrian fashion for in and out of the ring.
More than 30 years ago, Vancouver-based designer Noel Asmar began her career by designing fashionable uniforms and workwear for high-end resorts and spas. But after building her own barn at home to house her two horses (and spending much more time in the stables), she realized there was an obvious lack of chic equestrian wear. Where function had always reigned high above style, Noel Asmar decided to marry the two in equal balance.
Asmar launched her newest brand, Noel Asmar Equestrian, in 2011, and her designs were quickly thrust into the international spotlight. She was awarded the BETA’s International Exhibition Award for the Most Innovative Rider Clothing of the Year the very same year. Since, her equestrian line has only exponentially grown. Noel Asmar Equestrian is now carried in more than 250 equestrian tack shops, and the market in non-equestrian centric clothing stores has been steadily growing.
Noel Asmar Equestrian designs focus not only on functionality but on wearability – in or out of the ring. Each piece is held to the highest-quality standard, incorporating luxurious fabrics, the neatness of lines and the crispness of silhouettes.
The Noel Asmar Equestrian line starts with the basics, like breeches and polos, all of which are designed for comfort (“no rubbing”) while riding, but the spin Asmar puts on the classics creates statement-making pieces, making her designs a unique must-have in the equestrian world.
Of course, we have to mention the most famous, most impressive piece to ever come out of the Noel Asmar Equestrian line: All Weather Rider.
Recently unveiling a special edition version of this Asmar signature, the All Weather Rider is designed to protect your saddle from the elements. Sewn into the jacket itself are front and back hidden gussets which can be snapped open and draped over your saddle against the rain.
The Noel Asmar Equestrian line is versatile and fashionable for riders and spectators alike. Check out more of ELYSIAN’s favorites from Noel Asmar below:
