La Martina: Luxury Bags and Saddles July 03, 2015 15:42
La Martina is a brand with international appeal. A family business inspired by everything the sport of polo represents:
ELEGANCE, LUXURY AND EXPERIENCE.
The bags by La Martina show the same kind of charm: they are dynamic, competitive and demanding. The elegant, high-quality handbags and purses made by the Argentinean premium brand are manufactured in precise handwork - just like the valuable saddles and equestrian equipment.
The Argentinian label La Martina is really exotic. In the 1980th La Martina became successful by producing saddles, polo shirts and later bags. They became one of the few south-american manufacturers that is known worldwide. When La Martina expanded the assortment to sport- and casual wear many more people noticed their products. Especially polo-shirts, and the high-quality, sporty La Martina bags and purses for Men and Women became very popular. For a long time the premium label is the outfitter of different renowned polo-teams like the Argentinian national-team or the university teams of Harvard, Yale, Oxford and Cambridge. There is always something elitist about the famous horse sport and this touch is clearly visible in the classic and noble style of La Martina bags, totes and purses. Bag making is closely related to making saddles – as you will see looking at the La Martina leather handbags. The bags, shoulder bags and purses shine softly and their clear shapes are underlined by the precise stitches which are visible at the seam. Further the stability and a decorative golden pendant formed like a stirrup remind in the riding sport that is La Martina’s greatest inspiration. Larger bags and totes by La Martina are available in solid cotton or synthetic leather as well. La Martina prefers natural materials that remind in a country life-style but they fit into the city too. A natural elegance like this is very authentic and does not only attract polo-fans.
Maserati and leading polo brand La Martina, have collaborated on a one-off, hand-made, luxury polo saddle in celebration of Maserati’s Centennial Polo Tour.
Using the finest quality, carefully-selected full-grain leather and suede, the saddle was created in Argentina by La Martina’s expert craftsman.
The blue, black and silver colour scheme is inspired by Maserati’s luxurious road cars, including the new premium executive Ghibli saloon.
La Martina's lifestyle is simple and original: a lifestyle that relates to the culture of big cities but prefers outdoor living. Its atmosphere is rural yet refined: brick floors and antique carpets are combined with Argentine leather and antique British silverware. La Martina's clients prefer comfortably elegant vintage attire over trendy and more sterile clothing. Each garment completes person's individual style. It is a brand which designs core products that do not necessarily follow arbitrary changes in fashion.
