Unzipped: Nacho Figueras
The polo player and Ralph Lauren model opens up his gym bag.
You might recognize Ignacio "Nacho" Figueras from his omnipresent modeling work for Ralph Lauren, but polo fans recognize him as the player who brought their sport into the global spotlight. Starting at the age of 9, Figueras has acted as a player and ambassador for the sport, appearing in ad campaigns since the early 2000s. An international athlete and philanthropist, Figures is also set to appear at the Will Rogers Polo Club for the annual star-studded Veuve Clicquot Polo Classic in Los Angeles this weekend. But before he hops on the horse, we asked Figueras to unpack his gym bag and show the essentials that help him jump from the field to the studio.
