It’s almost here! That special time of year when we get to channel our inner Pretty Women for the fifth annual Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic!
Taking place this Saturday, June 2nd, the iconic bubbly brand will take a new home, residing at Liberty State Park to showcase the sport of polo with a new backdrop—less than 2,000 feet from the Statue of Liberty with a breathtaking view of the New York City skyline on more than 15 acres of gorgeous park land.
Guests will be able to watch the exciting polo exhibition match, sip champagne (five drink maximum – keep it classy NYC), enjoy catering from Silkstone and celebrate a wonderful day in the park.
Veuve Clicquot will also debut a custom Penelope Parasol as the must-have accessory at the polo field. Available in their iconic shade of yellow, the parasols are made of 100% silk dupioni fabric, making them as stylish as they are functional. The solid hardwood shaft, brass-finish handle, ferrule and tips complete the parasol’s elegant design. Retailing for $189, the parasols are available for purchase at the Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic (as well as www.penelopeparasols.com)
Modeling the VC Penelope Parasol in this short whimsical video, are two of our favorite performing duos, DJ Mia Moretti and electric violinist Caitlin Moe.
