England’s most exclusive polo club
The Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club (RCBPC), the most exclusive polo club in England, and an international fashion brand is the product of one man’s extraordinary vision.
The story begins with legendary music producer and designer Bryan Morrison, who made his fortune shaping the sounds of Pink Floyd, the Bee Gees and Wham! First encountering polo at Ham polo club, he was invited down by a friend and upon seeing it fell in love, Bryan was enchanted by the sport and founded the Club in 1985, using his sizeable wealth and influence to create an English icon. So resonant was the success of “The Berkshire“ affectionately known, the Prince of Wales soon became the first lifetime member.
Leading light in fashion
A trained designer and an impeccably stylish man, Bryan also saw the Club as a way of expressing his affluent but uniquely English fashion sense. He set to work designing the first RCBPC branded products in the late Eighties, beginning with a line of white jeans, which were hugely popular with the cognoscenti of the time.
With particular emphasis on Japan and Latin America Bryan began to sign a number of licenses and found himself at the helm of a burgeoning fashion line.
Bryan continued expanding the Berkshire in both the polo and fashion worlds, and today is survived by his family, his Club and by the fashion line that he created, which continues to express the flair, sporting pedigree and opulence that was his unique vision.
