Saturday 1st June - a red letter day indeed. In England they’re praying for sun and the first day of a glorious summer. Unlikely. Meanwhile In New York the Veuve Clicquot polo classic will kick off the summer social season on the East Coast. It will raise funds for Liberty State Park - devastated by Hurricane Sandy it’s only hosting a few events this year, this polo classic being one of them - and a fine chance to be decked out in the summer whites available from MaxStudio, embrace a summer dress, channel some lace detail, serve with a Panama hat - and you’re good to go.
England expects too - this summer the annual round of summer sporting events kicks off at Royal Ascot, the race meeting held in the shadow of Windsor Castle and frequented by most members of the Royal Family. Hot on its heels is the tennis at Wimbledon, the regatta at Henley and the Cowes week of racing around the Isle of Wight. Back in America there are some cooly cut classics from MaxStudio which can calmly brave the late August of Flushing Meadows for the US Tennis Open or some prim pastels for the Hamptons Classic Horse Show in Bridgehampton. What would Daisy Buchanan say to the 21st century Long Island set? “I’m sophisticated. GOD, I’m sophisticated,” no doubt.
