When not admiring the incredible top equestrians compete at The Hampton Classic, one of the summer staple’s highlights is visiting the exceptional Boutique Garden. While unfortunately the 2020 horse show was canceled because of the pandemic, the Hampton Classic is teaming up with KAVAL, a modern-luxury digital shopping destination and Hampton Classic sponsor, to present a special holiday pop-up shop in Southampton.
The KAVAL & Friends Gift Emporium premiered on Thursday, November 19 and will remain open through the end of the year. A portion of all proceeds will go to Hampton Classic Horse Show, Inc., a 501(c)(3) charitable corporation.
“KAVAL has been a wonderful and supportive sponsor ever since joining the Hampton Classic,” said Shanette Cohen, Hampton Classic Executive Director. “We are appreciative of Danielle Levine and KAVAL for coming up with this creative way of supporting the Classic. I invite everyone to visit the shop in Southampton where they will find an incredible selection of items just in time for the holiday season.”
The KAVAL & Friends Gift Emporium will encompass a wide variety of items, with a “Sunshine” themed section boasting swimsuits, linen shirts, sunglasses, leather sandals, beach bags, and more for those that can’t get enough beach time, a Lifestyle and Home area – that will feature the renowned Human Touch full body massage chairs – as well as a Kids’ corner and a section with technical equestrian wear.
“We are excited to have found a way to support the Hampton Classic, an institution that brings so much economic value to the East End. At the end of a challenging year, we also hope this pop up shop will be a positive experience for participating brands as well as customers,” Danielle Levine, KAVAL’s Founder & CEO, said.
Hampton Classic merchandise and souvenirs, including a selection of collectors-item posters from previous years, will also be available for purchase. For those with a sweet tooth, the Dylan’s Candy Bar will certainly hit the spot.
Holiday pop-up participants will include Human Touch, Dylan’s Candy Bar, Morgenthal Frederics, Marie Chantal, Solid & Striped, Dear Annabelle, Carema, Vestrum, Via Coquina, Katharine Page, Daphne Wilde, Seastar Beachwear, Montauk Tackle Co., Goode Rider, Equiline, Alkimya by Shay, Free x Rein, Maison D’Etto, Oughton, Ego 7, Brennan’s Bit & Bridle, Long Island Yarn & Farm, Ronner Design, Equisite, Redingote and Superflower.
“This is really exciting in so many ways,” Cohen added. “The Human Touch massage chairs are among the most popular items at the Classic’s Boutique Garden and people line up and wait just to try them. I’m sure they will be just as popular at the KAVAL pop-up along with all the other great items, many of which are also sold by Hampton Classic sponsors. I look forward to shopping there myself!”
The KAVAL & Friends Gift Emporium will be open Wednesday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., as well as Sunday and Monday from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Facetime Shopping Appointments can be reserved at [email protected].
