The Le Chameau Iris Boots with Sarah Kate Byrne

In collaboration with our friends from Le Chameau, and guest stylist, Sarah Kate Byrne, we headed down to the North Devon coast to gain an insight into Sarah Kate’s life growing up in rural Ireland and how she got into styling for horse racing’s most prestigious events. Sarah Kate also talks us through how to style the Le Chameau Iris Wellington Boot collection for the perfect spring look. 

About Sarah Kate Byrne

Since her childhood, Sarah Kate had been immersed in the world of horses and horseracing, having grown up next to her family’s fourth-generation stud farm. Park House Stud is one of the oldest in Ireland, standing thoroughbred sires as well as native Irish breeds such as the Irish Draught and Connemara. The long-standing legacy of Park House Stud is largely due to Sarah Kate’s grandfather, who had saved a stallion called Errigal who had been deemed not worthy to sire horses. However, Errigal went on to sire a famous racehorse called King of Diamonds, who has been described as “the single best known Irish Draught of modern times” thanks to his jumping ability, which is demonstrated in the fact that he sired Olympic show-jumpers and Olympic eventers.

Horseriding was a huge part of Sarah Kate and her siblings’ lives growing up in rural Ireland. Having learnt to ride from the age of four, Sarah Kate and her sister soon started to learn how to ride side-saddle, where they went on to compete and win in a number of equestrian competitions and horse shows around the world.

With such a strong affinity for horseracing, it was seen as only natural for Sarah Kate to go on to become a renowned stylist within horseracing circles. Specialising in formalwear and classic British glamour, Sarah Kate styles clients for key horseracing events such as Royal Ascot and Cheltenham Festival, where dressing up for the occasion is all a part of the experience. Sarah Kate is the personal stylist for ITV Racing’s Francesca Cumani and has also styled the likes of Georgia Toffolo, Vogue Williams and Alex Hammond.

Taking inspiration from the natural world, the Le Chameau Iris Wellington Boot gets its name from the Greek goddess of Rainbows, with the boots coming available in seven delightful colours. The Iris Boots are Le Chameau‘s lightest, most colourful wellington boots to date, crafted from the brand’s famous Chamolux rubber for a flexible, yet durable finish. Perfect for wearing for longer periods of time, the single density lightweight sole and breathable lining make this a comfortable style for the warmer months.

Vibrant, colourful and versatile, the Iris Boots present endless styling opportunities for everyday walks, weekends at festivals, garden parties, and rainy days in the great outdoors. Available in three heights, Sarah Kate puts the Le Chameau Iris Boot collection to the ultimate style test by showcasing the multiple ways that these versatile boots can be styled to suit any occasion.
