La Martina was founded by Landi Simonetti in 1985. The Argentine label has had the same vision since its beginning, looking to support and advocate for the game of polo. With this in mind, La Martina began producing leather boots and saddles for use in polo games, and from here the label expanded to also offer sports apparel.
Today, La Martina operates as a lifestyle brand with a strong sportswear influence and heritage. Producing clothing, shoes and bags for women, men and children, La Martina is inspired by real polo players, who may move from country to country with their families to take part in the sport. An undeniable passion for the game is clear throughout collections, with all designs influenced by the sport or the lifestyle of its players, resulting in functional, versatile pieces with a classic and elegant style. An air of easy luxury is produced by La Martina– from cotton shirts and relaxed dresses to functional gilets and chunky leather sneakers, the label creates effortlessly stylish attire. Whether watching a game or playing as a family, each design is versatile and impressive, crafted with quality to last.
Although the brand offers a wide range of apparel, La Martina is certainly best known for their polo shirts, which are available in many colours and styles. From bold brights to muted tones, each design features the brand’s iconic logo which can be seen as a celebration of the game of polo itself. Subtle shirts offer discreet branding, while more exuberant styles are adorned with large logos and traditional stripe detailing. Printed polo shirts create a summer-time feel, while long-sleeve designs are winter essentials.
With stores throughout the world, in cities such as Paris, Capri, Marrakech and Riyadh, La Martina collections can also be found online through the brand’s online store.
