J.M. Weston x Antarès
J.M. Weston joins forces with the saddler Antarès to offer four excetionel items : a riding saddle, a pair of camber boots, a helmet and a belt.
J.M. WESTON AND THE EQUESTRIAN WORLD :
J.M. Weston has an intimate and historic relationship with the world of horse riding. Two of its iconic models, the Camber and Jodhpur boots, are symbols of this elegance in motion. They are made entirely in the Limoges workshop, under the expert guidance of the finest craftsmen. This French artistry is illustrated even at the heart of the French Republic’s finery: Since 1975 J.M. Weston has manufactured the hard-wearing boots of the cavalry of the Republican Guard.
EXCEPTIONAL PIECES :
On each of these pieces, Tannerie Bastin's renowned vegetable leather has been adapted for new uses: the tanning powders have been adjusted (in this case, oak bark, for greater durability and resistance), and the tanning time has been reduced, for a thicker leather. On the saddle, the Bastin leather comes into its own in the inserts on the flaps. The modernity of a sports and performance article made of the finest leathers: that's the promise of this exceptional piece, tailor-made by Antarès, and revealed for the first time at the Equitalyon International Horse Show, which will take place from 1st to 5 November 2023. Alongside the saddle, a carefully crafted helmet approved for horse riding and cycling is also on offer, with leather detailing on the chinstrap and top, as well as a reversible leather belt (black on one side, vegetable leather on the other) enhanced by a metal Signature buckle. A pair of Camber boots completes the rider's outfit: the leather from which they are made has water-resistant properties, while the notched rubber sole offers good grip. Available in men's and women's models, the boots have been tested by riders who are partners of Antarès, and whose precious feedback has attested to their suppleness, robustness and lightness. An image of a horse's neck adorns the inside of the boots and their pull tabs, adding to their noble look.
