FITCH’S CORNER THIS WEEKEND
WHAT 2 WEAR WHERE HOSTS CURATED POP SHOP AT FITCH’S MARKET DURING HORSE TRIALS WEEKEND FEATURING CORDIALLY, COOPER, BRACKISH BOW TIES, HAYWARD LUXURY & HOPPER GOODS
Fitch’s Corner, an equestrian event that brings as much authenticity to the sport of horses as it does to butterflies of the social whirl, is this weekend in Millbrook, New York. Horse lovers of all breeds will gather once again on the farm of former Tiffany’s & CO VP Fernanda Kellogg to partake in a uniquely American pastime. And what better venue to introduce the latest American brand in menswear HOPPER by Marin Hopper, the daughter of American original Dennis Hopper. Karen Klopp of What2WearWhere & K. Cooper Ray will host a curated POP SHOP at the Fitch’s Market over the weekend. Cooper has invited Brackish Bow Ties – the hand-made feathered brand favored by Bill Murray – to represent his home base of Charleston, South Carolina.

The 2016 Fitch’s Corner Horse Trials mark the 23rd Anniversary of a country weekend and horse competition, which competitors, enthusiasts, and the who’s who of Dutchess County simply don't miss. The elegant setting, challenging courses, and wide array of associated activities attracts both amateur and Olympic competitors. Fitch’s Market offers more than 50 exhibitors selling items from fashions to home and accessories for horse and hound. Fitch’s Food Court presents healthy and hearty fare in between the social events which include: the Blue Jean Ball Saturday night and the Spectator Luncheon, benefiting the Millbrook Fire Department and Rescue Squad on Sunday and featuring a Collector Car Show and Parade.
HOPPER Goods – HOPPER is a new menswear and accessories brand inspired by the life and spirit of Dennis Hopper, a photographer and a filmmaker, an artist and an actor. A lightning rod to half a century of pop culture who used his lens to document the high and low of world ‘on fire with change.”
Brackish Bow ties – The toast of Charleston, these hand-crafted bow ties are individual works of art that a man can wear! Every tie is handcrafted locally in South Carolina. And because every single feather is hand selected, no two Brackish bow ties are exactly alike. Every tie is a sustainable work of art. “We have put painstaking effort into our products and pride ourselves on genuine, intricate detail not found in mass production.” The artisanal brand held close to the hearts of southern gentlemen found itself in the glare of international spotlight when acclaimed actor (and local man about town) Bill Murray sported Brackish as the Academy Awards.
