Last night, Piaget hosted the launch of 'Sport of Kings' at their beautiful New Bond Street boutique in the heart of Mayfair, London.
The evening opened with drinks, mingling and a chance to browse the exquisite Piaget's watches and jewellery before brief introductions from Piaget's brand director Lorenza Cavalli who spoke about the longstanding affiliation the company has with international Polo. Alex Holmes from New Black Films followed with a passionate overview of the production and his recent experience of shooting in Argentina, the hot bed of Polo. Guests were then shown exclusive and exciting footage from the documentary film and TV series.
We were also treated to a taste of absolute luxury from Royal Dutch Caviar whose product was perfectly paired with champagne and delicious canapés throughout the evening. The event launched the project officially to the Polo world and saw the production team, patrons, characters, press, brands and all those involved in the future success of the project come together for the very first time
We were pleased to have Nicholas Colquhoun-Denvers, the President of the Federation of International Polo, Roy Prisk professional polo player and Victoria Elsbury-Legg (@velsburylegg) Polo journalist and blogger, and Jamie Morrison owner of the Royal Berkshire Polo Club join us for this exclusive evening.
Jason Phillips CEO of Heritage Media was unable to attend but the New Black Films production team and John Santos of Golden Mile Productions with whom the project originated were in attendance and able to pass on their passion and knowledge about sport of kings to all the guests.
