Zara Phillips launches equestrian clothing line
Oct 5, 2012, 15:02 GMT
Zara Phillips launched the latest collection of clothing by British brand Musto today (05.10.12).
Queen Elizabeth's granddaughter - who won a silver medal as part of Team GB at the London 2012 Olympics this summer - has worked closely with the range and stepped in to give a helping hand in promoting their new equestrian line, with England and Black Rams rugby player James Haskell assisting too.
The pair posed for photos at Somerset House on London's Strand wearing items from the spring/summer range of the collection, named ZP176 after Zara's number when first representing her country.
The Olympic Silver medallist horse-rider was hands on with the collection and previously revealed she tries and tests all the products before they are released.
She said: 'With design, the products were already there. I just tweaked a few things, like put in a longer cut for the riding jackets, so it won't expose the back if you're riding in the elements.'
Zara, 31, also explained the Musto collection is more about its flawless functioning with top quality material rather than following the latest trends.
She added: 'It's less to do with mainstream fashion and more about practicality and engineering something that works in training, but which you wouldn't be embarrassed to be seen in, in public.'
