Cognac maker Maison Prince Hubert de Polignac has teamed with Paris-based luxury trunk maker T.T. Trunks to create a trunk which captures the quintessential elegance of equestrianism. The result is the ‘Knight Trunk’ – a celebration of the world of equestrian sports and horsemanship.
Packed into this sumptuous trunk are all the accessories a rider could need (brushes, mane comb, curry comb, cover etc.). Nestled within the trunk is a carafe containing an exceptional blend of very old vintage cognacs.
Only two Knight Trunks have been created, but future editions will be made to order. Creating a Knight Trunk requires 180 hours of work from experienced craftsmen.
The first of the Knight Trunks will be auctioned on September 19 at the 8th annual La Part des Anges, with all proceeds going to charity.
