Shanghai Tang is the leading luxury brand emerging from China with a mission to weave the craftsmanship of imperial Chinese tailoring into modern-day fashion.
A dedicated advocate for traditions, Shanghai Tang has announced their annual Polo Cup’s return to Mongolia from August 27 to August 29, where Genghis Khan’s warriors once played the regal sport.
Polo has been long lost to Mongolian culture but has recently been revived to breed the next generation of world-class polo players. Mongol players play up their heritage by attiring in traditional costumes worn by their mighty cavalry ancestors.
With a strong sense of heritage and one of the world’s most breathtaking and well-preserved landscape, this polo match seems promising as an equestrian’s dream come true.
Here are some of the event photos from Shanghai Tang Polo Cup’s last visit in Mongolia in 2006.
