Where it all began …

Emma the founder, was working for a summer at a stable yard in the Algarve, Portugal, she received so many compliments from many British clients for a pair of Spanish Riding Boots she had purchased locally. This prompted her to make a small detour on her way home to Valverde del Camino, southern Spain to pick up a few pairs of these fantastic boots.

On her return in October 2002 the enthusiastic welcome to the boots allowed SRB Valverde to be born.

Emma’s overall aim is to provide the British market with good quality Spanish merchandise at affordable prices. She has already expanded into stocking a selection of styles and plan to increase her range where possible. Customer service is high on the list of priorities whilst establishing SRB Valverde and they also offer a made to measure service.

Emma decided to change the company name to The Spanish Boot Company mainly because it is a lot easier to remember than SRB Valverde!

From being the original importers of the Spanish Boot styles back in 2002 and still going strong! New product lines and a hugely popular bespoke service, gorgeous Egality Freedom tailoring and some pretty amazing accessories, all hand picked by our team for your shopping pleasure.

” Thanks for being part of our journey so far, we couldn’t have done it without you all! ”

The tradition of Champagne Lanson’s exclusive tie-ups with the summer’s key sporting and social calendar events has been confirmed for 2017 with its sponsorship of Chestertons Polo in the Park and Champagne Lanson’s 40th associated year with The Championships, Wimbledon.

CHESTERTONS POLO IN THE PARK Champagne Lanson’s ‘The Perfect Start to… Summer’ campaign will begin with its exclusive Champagne sponsorship of Chestertons Polo in the Park on 9th June 2017. This will be Champagne Lanson’s third year with one of the most hotly anticipated fixtures on London’s sporting and social calendars. Champagne Lanson will once again be recreating its largest outdoor Champagne Garden, overlooking the field of play at Hurlingham Park – a glamorous focal point at last year’s event. In 2017, Champagne Lanson plans to theme its sponsored areas predominantly white to highlight its White Label cuvée (one of the first Champagnes designed to also work with flavour enhancers such as a zest of an orange or lemon, a slice of strawberry, or a sprig of fresh mint).

It will have its Magnum, Methuselah and 75cl formats of its White Label cuvée as a theme across its now legendary Champagne Garden; as well as Magnum and 75cl bottles of its popular Rose Label (which remains the UK’s No.1 non-vintage Brut rosé Champagne).

Combining world-class sport, a host of London’s most exciting Polo players, restaurants and Europe’s longest outdoor Champagne bar, Chestertons Polo in the Park is the perfect setting for polo fans and London’s social society to kick-off the summer season in style.

Paul Beavis, Managing Director, UK & International says: “As a brand that embodies excellence, innovation and celebrates achievements, Champagne Lanson continues to be proud of its association with Chestertons Polo in the Park. This exciting event has become one of the most hotly anticipated fixtures and is the most fun you and your friends or family members can have in central London.”

Rory Heron, Managing Director, Sportgate International says: “Over the three action- packed days, six teams representing cities from all over the globe will battle to be crowned the victors of Chestertons Polo in the Park 2017. We were proud to be the first event of Champagne Lanson’s #ThePerfectStart to… summer campaign. Champagne Lanson’s choice to lead with their Rose Label across the site led to record Champagne sales inside their incredible pink Champagne Garden last year; and we know Lanson’s White Label cuvée plans for this year will resonate with our guests, as it fits perfectly with the theme of Polo.”

U.S. Open Polo Championship final

Valiente wins U.S. Open Championship

Polowinner

The final was exciting from the second the ball left the umpire’s hand to begin the game. Orchard Hill’s Polito Pieres took the throw-in and found Facundo Pieres on the end of a pass. Facundo bounced a shot in off the goal post to open the scoring less than 30 seconds into the game. After both teams traded penalty goals with Facundo converting a penalty 4 for Orchard Hill and Diego Cavanagh converting a penalty 2 for Valiente, 10-goaler Adolfo Cambiaso drove downfield with time expiring. Shooting at goal from approximately 60 yards out, the ball sailed over the inside edge of the goal post, narrowly missing a goal by inches. The smallest of margins was determining the outcome of the game between two highly skilled and well-mounted teams.

The tense game continued as Diego Cavanagh took advantage of early fouls from Orchard Hill to score the first 5 Valiente goals (4 penalty goals, 1 field goal). Meanwhile Orchard Hill was controlling open play as Polito Pieres scored his first goal of the game while Facundo Pieres scored his third goal to maintain the 4-4 tie after two chukkers.
Orchard Hill exploded in the third chukker, outscoring Valiente 5-2. Orchard Hill converted 5 of 7 shot attempts as they looked to seize control of the game and gain a lead over a tough Valiente team that was set on making a comeback. The emergence of Polito Pieres for Orchard Hill was a huge factor. He had his best game of the season, highlighted by a first half that saw him score 4 of his 6 goals and win 6 of his game-leading 11 throw-ins on the day to give Orchard Hill a 9-6 edge heading into halftime.

Valiente showed why they were the highest-scoring team of the 2017 season to start the second half as Cambiaso scored off the first throw-in to cut the deficit to two goals.
Cambiaso wasn’t done there, as Matias Torres Zavaleta hit a perfect backhand to set him up for a breakaway and put a lot of pressure on Orchard Hill as their 3-goal lead quickly shrunk to 1 goal. Just as it seemed Valiente would keep scoring, Polito Pieres snuck up behind Cambiaso and stole the ball, springing himself on a breakaway to give some momentum back to Orchard Hill.

Valiente hit their stride and won the fifth chukker 2-0 to tie the game at 11. After Cambiaso gave Valiente their first lead of the game with his fifth goal of the game,
Cavanagh had a penalty 3 opportunity to extend the lead to 2 with less than three minutes remaining. Surprisingly, he did not convert, a rare miss for the 73% penalty shooter. Polito Pieres answered by taking a Facundo backhand and hit a cut shot from 40 yards out that just found its way inside the goal post to tie the game. 
Seconds before the final horn Facundo Pieres caught Cavanagh on a turn near the Valiente goal. After a reversed call and a challenge, Orchard Hill had a penalty 4 opportunity. The ball sailed over the goalpost just wide, throwing the game into overtime.

After six chukkers Orchard Hill had shot a very efficient 11 of 15 (73%) from the field, while winning the throw-in battle 20-9, possibly giving them a slight edge heading into overtime. Both teams had their chances to end the game, with Facundo and Polito Pieres both making runs at goal for Orchard Hill while Cambiaso missed a goal by inches on a shot from 40 yards out. After the ball went out of play approximately 100 yards from the Orchard Hill goal, Cavanagh broke out of the back end of the line-up and ran to goal, putting the ball through for his seventh goal of the game to hand Valiente the 13-12 victory and the 2017 U.S. Open Polo Championship title.

In 2017, Jaeger-LeCoultre is writing a new chapter in the story of its Rendez-Vous collection of women’s timepieces. Originally introduced by the Maison in 2012, Rendez-Vous is a collection bearing all the hallmarks of Jaeger-LeCoultre’s Métiers RaresTM (Rare Crafts), impeccable timekeeping accuracy, unrivalled excellence in craftsmanship and the breathtaking artistry of its jewellery designs and settings.

The new Rendez-Vous collection, once again the result of the combined talents of the watchmakers and craftspeople of the Manufacture in the Vallée de Joux, is a celebration of horology designed for women, with sophisticated materials in muted and sparkling tones reinforcing the timeless style of these elegant, noble timepieces.

The introduction of a moon phase and a new chiming reminder function, yellow and rose gold options, a larger size and sumptuous new straps, all reflect the popularity of the Rendez-Vous collection worldwide, among art, design and watch lovers alike.

A rich gamut of colours, including yellow and rose gold watch cases, takes inspiration from the constantly changing light of the sun and the moon, from the first glows of dawn to the vibrant shades of dusk, turning to a moonlit sky as day turns to night – eliciting colours, reflections and emotions to accompany and inspire a woman every moment of her life, whatever the occasion and wherever she may be.

At the heart of every Rendez-Vous timepiece is an impeccably precise automatic movement coupled with the aesthetic perfection of a rare, precious jewel. The new Rendez-Vous unveils the secrets of watchmaking mastery at its finest, both in technique and artistry – from the elaborate ornamentation of its movement to the elegant adornment of its dial, from the delicate setting of its diamonds and sapphires to the presentation of its timekeeping functions.
