Ariana Rockefeller Saddles Up for Longines Masters with New Handbag Capsule

Available today, equestrian and designer Ariana Rockefeller releases a limited-edition saddle bag in collaboration with the Longines Masters of New York to celebrate the prestigious indoor show jumping and luxury lifestyle event’s arrival in New Your this coming April. The elegant cross-body bag borrows inspiration from the world-class riding of the global Longines Masters Series taking place in Paris, Hong Kong, and now, Rockefeller’s home state of New York.

The designer celebrated the bag’s launch last night at her home in Wellington, Florida—the winter capital of equestrian sport—with a cocktail reception hosted with the Longines Masters. Among the guests were Hannah Selleck, Georgina Bloomberg, and equestrian Olympic medalists Nick Skelton and Laura Kraut.

Made of classic canvas and trimmed in grain leather, the Ariana Rockefeller for Longines Masters New York saddle bag is available in two colors and reflects the smooth leather curves and buckles of a saddle. The gray-on-gray style was inspired by both the aesthetic and attitude of New York City as well as the colors of the Longines Masters brand. Made in New York, the saddle bag is available in classic natural twill with brown leather trim. Complete with an embossed logo on the inside pocket, the bag retails for $550 on and on-site at the Longines Masters New York. 

Combining the best of equestrian sports, high-end shopping, delectable cuisine, and nightly musical performances, the Longines Masters of New York will ride into New York for its debut event on April 26 to 29, 2018, at NYCB Live, home of the Nassau Veterans Memorial Coliseum.
