The daily life of summer programming season is well and truly in swings, which meant it was time for our annual Influencer Escape last week. Once again we have gathered friends of the publication for a three-day retreat in the lush surroundings of 21 House at the Reform Club in Amagansett. Here’s a look at the fashion-filled event.
Join the team Daily from the west coast were Madi B. Webb and Manasvi, alongside Karina Bik and Sophie Sumner. Upon arrival at the Reform Club, our guests settled into their spacious rooms and discovered their curated gifts. After a long day of traveling, they put on their Haven Well Within cloud-sweet bits to catch up. In the cozy living room, Sam Edelman candles created a welcoming atmosphere as the content creators tried on new waist styles, matching their outfits from Bash, Tanya Taylor, Intermix, and more. But more on that in a minute…
To settle in, the quartet took advantage of the Zen activity par excellence: relaxing acupuncture sessions with an Ora practitioner. (Beyond her Manhattan outposts, Ora is also Out East at The Barn in Bridgehampton and available for house calls in the East End as well.) After that, glasses of Daou rosé wine were enjoyed by all while Third Falcon’s chef Callie prepared a local. meal inspired dishes of roasted eggplant, seafood, fresh greens with labneh and a fruit crumble with vegan ice cream for dessert. After that, the only thing to do was to go to bed early before a busy few days.
Day two started off on a relaxing note, with a guided meditation practice courtesy of Colleen Saidmen Yee, a former model turned general wellness guru. The morning, hosted by elevated lifestyle concept Haven Well Within, continued with a delicious healthy brunch for additional VIP guests who had traveled for the day, astrology readings by Francesca Vuillemin, a suite of giveaways (cashmere for all!), and a chance to take a spin on the terrain on Blue Jay bikes.
In the afternoon, the four influencers headed to the town of East Hampton for a private shopping experience at the Intermix boutique where they indulged in the latest from top contemporary ready-to-wear brands.
Across the street, they continued to have fun with fashion at Zadig & Voltaire, trying on and bringing home the latest styles and must-have accessories. After shopping, they all freshened up and got into the party mood with Moroccanoil’s hair styling magic and got ready to smile all night long with the Daily vitamin-infused oral care products from dental care partner Better & Better.
That evening, a chic crowd gathered for a sunny Tanya Taylor cocktail party, where they said “cheers” over Talk House canned seltzer, DAOU wine and Hiatus tequila. Complimenting the golden hour, guests wore pretty Tanya Taylor print dresses and parted as they took part in a painting installation, joined by the eponymous designer herself. (Ps. Buy the Tanya Taylor DFR edit here….)
The third and final day began with a morning coffee in Stripe & Stare loungewear before taking part in a sculpting, model-approved P.volve workout in the morning sun. (Watch this space, as the fitness brand will appear in various Out East locations this season.)
Before parting ways and heading to their own busy schedules of events, parties and more, the foursome stopped for one last shopping spree at Ba.sh in Southampton to pick up some bohemian-inspired dresses and rock n’ roll to make sure they’d be best dressed all weekend.
Until next year!
