In anticipation of a new season, the UK’s oldest racecourse, Chester Racecourse, has announced its annual Style Guide collaboration in association with McArthurGlen Designer Outlet Cheshire Oaks. The UK’s first and biggest designer outlet takes the mantle as the Boodles May Festival Style Partner for a second year running, following a successful inaugural partnership in 2018.
To announce the renewed relationship, a special fashion editorial spread showcasing some of the latest seasonal trends ahead of the new season features in the latest edition of the Cheshire Magazine. Featuring premium brands such as Paul Smith, Belstaff and of course Boodles, the magazine feature is a sneak peek into this year’s Style Guide which will be released at the start of April.
This year’s guide will provide racegoers with an overview of this year’s top trends, coupled with some expert style advice courtesy of a host of luxury brands available at McArthur Glen Designer Outlet Cheshire Oaks. For those new to the racecourse, the guide will provide a definitive ‘what to wear’ across all areas. From the relaxed setting of the open grass plain of the Roodee to the fine dining surroundings of a private hospitality box, this year’s guide will offer up plenty of stylish inspiration on dressing for a day at the races.
Kenny Murray, from McArthur Glen Designer Outlet Cheshire Oaks said: “We are delighted once again to be the official Style Partner for the Boodles May Festival at Chester Racecourse. The festival is a highlight in not only the racing but the region’s calendar and we’re incredibly proud to be a part of it. As the UK’s first and largest designer outlet, we have continually strived to expand and improve our offering, to ensure we are giving the best possible shopping experience for our visitors.
“Our recent £40 million expansion allows us to continue to lead the way in transforming the designer shopping experience to the benefit of the communities we serve, creating more jobs and introduction new brands and guest services to our centre.”
The official Style Guide will be revealed online at www.chester-races.com and this year, packed with even more ideas for racegoers. 25 new stores at McArthur Glen Cheshire Oaks will provide racegoers with even more choice and inspiration.
