During this time it was announced that she would be designing her own line of equestrian clothing for the Musto Outdoor Clothing company. The range is called ZP176 and is named after the team number she received when she first represented her country. ZP176 was officially launched in July of 2010.
Headwear and caps, tops, breeches and jodhpurs, coats and jackets, trousers, t-shirts, base layer and accessories are available. These items feature a sporty appearance. They are constructed from technical fabrics that are meant to keep the wearers, and riders, protected whether on or off the saddle.
Individuals can shop the products on the Musto website. They can narrow down the selection by shopping by product type, color, outerwear type, activity and technology. While these items are made with equestrians in mind, the clothing and accessories might be used by those who are not. Prices will vary based on the item.
Phillips has said that she tried and tested everything in the collection. Most of her involvement was about tweaking little things here and there to make the items more practical for wearers. She says her line is in no way about mainstream fashion but is about engineering goods that work well for training and are not bad to look at.
As far as functionality, some of the products are made with special material to make them windproof, breathable, waterproof, fast drying, water resistant and showerproof. Furthermore, there are items designed specifically for competition, stables and event, or in saddle activities. Other technologies that were used in the making of these goods: Primaloft, SPF, Coolmax, DWR, and Primaloft Synergy.
The line was two years in the making. While functional, the pieces are still classy sportswear. They might be preferred by individuals who want to look good while training or competing, but not at the loss of functionality. The experience she has as an equestrian has helped her design items that will work best for other athletes of the sport.
Most of the products are available in neutral colors, varying grays, blues and blacks, as well as whites and reds. The items feature Musto classics, including the Grooms Gilet and Snug Chaps with updates on design, fit and color option. Sizing for most of the goods is available in x small to xxx large, as well as size 8 to 18. The technology, reviews and features of the pieces are included on the Musto website as well. Availability might differ, but most of the goods are available for purchase from the Musto website. There may be other sellers who have gently used or new items available on other sites.
