St. Regis Hotels & Resorts joined Robin Hood for the Piaget Hamptons Cup which took place at the Equuleus Polo Club in Bridgehampton on Sunday. During this thrilling day of polo on the countryside, St. Regis defeated the Credit Suisse team by 9 to 6.
This polo match marked St. Regis’ return to Bridgehampton for the third annual Piaget Hamptons Polo Cup, once again partnering with the Robin Hood Foundation in a continuing effort to support New York families in need.
The St. Regis team was captained by St. Regis Connoisseur Nacho Figueras who also served as co-chair alongside his wife, Delfina Blaquier for the match. This exhilarating match welcomed guests and their families to come together to enjoy the sport of kings at one of Bridgehampton’s most beautiful settings. Attendees included Donna Karan, Gabby Karan De Felice, Ren Grady and Rachel Zoe and her husband Roger Berman along with their son Skylar.
St. Regis has long been associated with the world of polo, beginning at the turn of the last century when St. Regis’ founding family, the Astors, were a prominent fixture at the matches on Manhattan’s Governors Island. That association continues today, expanding around the world alongside the brand’s growth, and the past few years have seen St. Regis hosting spirited polo matches in the United Kingdom, United States, Thailand, Singapore and South America, and this fall, St. Regis will bring polo to Mexico City.
St. Regis polo events have attracted a glamorous group of followers over the years, with recent attendees to events around the world including HRH Prince Harry, Princess Beatrice, Valentino, Michelle Harper, Jessica Hart, Olivia Chantecaille, Rosamund Pike, Jason Wu and Joely Richardson, among many others.
