Afternoons spent sipping Champagne and watching the polo over the edge of your Oliver Peoples’ sunshades is normally a summer-only affair. But with the arrival of arena polo to The 02 in London, we’re expecting fashionistas attending LFW to head east to Docklands to catch a glimpse of some of the world’s finest polo players this Thursday. And to partake in the free-flowing Pommery Champagne, naturally (note: Champagne Pommery is sponsoring the event and that Pommery can be purchased from Justerini & Brooks, www.justerinis.com). Arena polo is a faster, more furious affair and teams from South Africa, Argentina, Scotland and England will be taking part in the tournament on Thursday, 24th February. The Gaucho International Polo, sponsored by the excellent steak chain (we’re loving the combination of Pommery Champagne and Gaucho steak), offers a range of VIP packages, and with events kicking off at 2pm – including a five-course lunch with wine pairings – we’ll be spending the whole day E14 way.
