Hampton Ivy is a new accessories company boasting beautiful, preppy equestrian- and nautical-inspired designs. If you would describe yourself as traditional and all-American, this company will fit you like a glove as their designs channel the timeless aesthetics of vintage, preppy style.
Their online shop went live in June 2015, and there truly is something for the equestrian prep in all of us. I had the good fortune of gaining a sneak peek at their collection earlier in the year, and I treasure the snaffle bit bangle I received. The bangle is well-crafted and was the perfect accessory for the day I spent at Pimlico Racetrack for Preakness weekend.
Hampton Ivy is constantly updating their inventory and adding new bangles on a seasonal basis. Look for their Fall Line scheduled to be released the first week of October. One of my favorites is the very unique 100% Scottish Cashmere bangle; it comes in many colors and patterns. I also love the burgundy cuff – it would complement any sweater worn on a crisp fall day, (maybe while out pumpkin-picking or even on a trail ride)!
While the face of Hampton Ivy is the gorgeous Melanie, she is quick to point out that her brothers are both working for the company too. Ryan (pictured to the left of Melanie) handles the retail side and other business aspects while Kyle (pictured right) is the resident artist who creates some of their patterns and also does the leather and metal work. This artistic and fashionable family attends local polo matches together and enjoys riding and boating, a sporting background that is evident in each and every one of their designs.
Their bangles are priced to fit any budget, so check out their shop today and flaunt your Hampton Ivy bling this fall! For more information, please visit their blog here and find them on Instagram @hamptonivy.
