LUCY SYKES RELLIE’S HAMPTONS COMMANDMENTS “Because manners and money is always a tricky combination. Especially in the Hamps.” » Oversize diamond studs and fluorescent workout gear should be banned before 8 a.m.—unless you are a paid extra on a Kardashian reality show. » Do not complain about the cost of bread at Loaves and Fishes, but feel free to call them Thieves and Bitches. » Always tell Sue at J.Crew you are on Mickey’s VIP list. Gwyneth does. » If you see Jason Binn, ask for a joint selfie. I promise he’ll be thrilled. » Children will be muzzled if they do not use please and thank you at Sant Ambroeus’ ice cream bar. » Try your hardest to get on Peggy Siegal’s list. There are chic celebs worth cricking your neck for at her screenings at Bryan Bantry’s Goose Creek Farm. » Pay a celebrity fashion photographer lots of money to go to a rave on a free beach in Montauk. You’ll be rubbing shoulders with Victoria’s Secret models. » The best cheese is at Mecox Farm.

VACATION ALERT! Busy, busy! Your ambitious multicity summer plans, revealed.
DENNIS BASSO: “I’m going to the South of France for a week, then to the south of Turkey, and then to The Pines.” PETER DUNDAS, Pucci’s artistic director: “I’m headed to Glastonbury, then Ibiza, then to my house in Greece, where I’ll receive
☛ What were vous doing out east for Memorial Day? Well, Beyoncé and Jay Z were abstaining from Kimye’s highly choreographed Italian nuptials to hit the Hamps via private jet. Helicopters must be terribly last season. ☛ Gabby Karan Defelice snapped up the spiffed-up motel known as Enclave Inn last July, but the date of the redux’s reveal is still TBD. Maybe in 2015? One request: uniforms by Donna, please. ☛ New neighbor alert: American Idol lothario Simon Cowell and Lauren Silverman are renting a pad in Bridgehampton this summer. ☛ Craving a bit of the Great White Way? Fret not: an adaptation of The Wedding Singer is debuting at North Fork Community Theatre in Mattituck on July 24. ☛ What does Shelter Island smell like? Bond No. 9 has the answer, apparently, with their new scent named after the place. ☛ Congrats to Fabiola Beracasa, who got hitched in the buzziest destination wedding to banker Jason Beckman in Dubrovnik, Croatia on June 6, with guests like Snoop Lion, Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci, and Margherita Missoni. Quite the crew, non?
NO SEAMLESS? NO PROB! YOUR SURVIVAL GUIDE: You can’t order din with a couple clicks on the East End but… …You can get sloshed more easily! Is your local liquor joint too privy to your rosé habit? Download Drizly or Minibar, dueling apps that bring the booze to you. The cons: For lush types,
Minibar’s got a $100 minimum, and for the under-21 set, Drizly’s drivers authenticate IDs. …You can ride a helicopter out east with just three taps and $500 with
the Blade app. If it rains, a Maserati will chauffeur you. …You can score sameday delivery on Google Glass via Mr. Porter, for just $1,650. UV lens clip included.
friends and family for three weeks in August.” WES GORDON: “I go to Roxbury, Connecticut. Then I’ll be in Italy for fittings, then on to Belize and the Bahamas.” SCOTT SCHUMAN, The Sartorialist: “After the Paris shows, I spend a month in Milan, and then a month shooting up and down the Italian coast. Then, I’ll go to New York when my kids are back from camp to spend time with them; then, to Ibiza. Hopefully by September, I’ll be really tan, skinny, with longer hair and a beard.”

1. Calvin Klein’s lavish Southampton manse was finally finished last month, and the designer has taken down the “No Trespassing” signs formerly outside the abode. 2. Mazel tov, Katie Couric! Wearing Carmen Marc Valvo, she tied the knot to financé John Molner at her East Hampton abode. 3. Last month’s Kardashian news, in brief: Kourtney possibly stiffed the staff at The Driver’s Seat, pissed off diners at Southampton Social Club by doling out release
forms, and she and sis Khloe are settled in their $14M pad—and the rent’s paid by E!, of course. Plus! Local authorities are chomping at the bit to catch the girls illegally filming on public beaches. 4. Miley Cyrus in the Hamptons, sorta. A local posted a pic on Instagram of the pop tartlet’s look-alike trying on sunnies in the East Hampton CVS. There was, alas, no twerking involved. B FA N YC .

THE DAILY SUMMER SEASON PREMIERE PARTY AT STK
SNACK ATTACK WITH GIGI HADID:
What’s your top summer snack? On hot days, I love eating half a watermelon with a spoon on the beach. Do you dig steak? Yes! I’m actually a good cook. I can grill my own. How do you take your steak? Medium rare, with French fries.
HETRICK-MARTIN INSTITUTE’S SH 15TH ANNUAL SCHOOL’S OUT BA
SCENE The Daily Summer toasted its season
premiere issue on June 4 with cover gal Gigi Hadid at STK Rooftop in New York City’s Meatpacking district, and chicsters like Garrett Neff, Lorenzo Martone, Haute Hippie’s Trish Wescoat Pound, Di Mondo, Peter Davis, Marlon Gobel, Evian’s Eric O’Toole, and Elena Foley popped by. “I was so excited when I saw the cover,” said Hadid’s proud mom, Yolanda Foster. “I really wanted Gigi to shoot with Gilles Bensimon, because when I was modeling in the ’80s, he was such a big name. I want her to keep reaching for the stars and follow her heart.” The alfresco bash was stocked with Evian, Peroni, Pampelonne’s rosé lime, and Belvedere cocktails named The Montauk and The Sag Harbor to fend off the humid temps. ☛ More Gigi, please! DKNY and Hannah Bronfman co-hosted a chic supper at Georgica on May 25 with The Daily Summer to benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund. Hadid, plus folks like Julie Henderson, Brendan Fallis, and Nick Loeb, feasted on corn on the cob, fluke ceviche, and salad—plus a raffle filled with DKNY garb. Later in the eve, there was a performance by Lily Lane, who describes her music as “bluesy pop, reminiscent of Amy Winehouse.” Dinner and a show!

Double-date perfection!
COIF MUSTS WITH SHOOT HAIRSTYLIST TOMOYUKI TAMURA
FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y. C O M
Which products did you use on this cover shoot? John Frieda’s Curl Reviver Mousse and Expert Finish Polishing Serum. What’s your secret for amazing beachy ’dos? My best trick is to finish with serum: I just comb a little through dry hair with my fingers to create a piecey look and add texture. Who was your coif muse for this shoot? Kate Moss circa the ’90s! What’s the biggest faux pas people make when aiming for beachy strands? Hair that’s too dry and textureless. That’s why base products, like Curl Reviver Mousse, are so important for this look! Any tricks for working this look with long hair? The hair’s ends are more important than its length. I make sure to keep the ends of the hair straight. PA R T I E S : PAT R I C K M C M U L L A N .

SKIVVY TALK With Suzy Biszantz, U.S. CEO, La Perla Who are the brand’s new faces? We have a trio of girls with totally different personalities who reflect the diversity of the La Perla woman. Malgosia Bela is very glamorous, refined, and just classically beautiful. Liu Wen is one of the top models in the world, and she brings along an international flair. Then there’s Cara Delevingne, the young It girl in London who has a lot of movie projects coming up. What can American women learn from Italians about lingerie? Lingerie can make you feel better about yourself and how you feel in your clothes. Properly fitting lingerie can really change your outlook and disposition, and that confidence is so important. Do you prefer one-pieces or bikinis? I’m from California, where two pieces are part of our DNA, but a one-piece is sounding pretty interesting to me right now. Anything for the hommes? We’re relaunching our men’s brand under the creative direction of Emiliano Rinaldi! 66 Newtown Ln., East Hampton

DO… • Get up as early as possible! Bring boxes and old towels or blankets so you can pack things in your car without breaking them. • Bring snacks. • Plan your route. • Bring a sense of humor—it’s a jungle out there.

With Red Stixs executive chef Skinny Mei Why’d you set up shop in Watermill? Hamptons residents have been looking for high-end Chinese food for a long time, and we answered that call! What’s up with the name? Red Stixs is a reference to red chopsticks—red is the color of energy, passion, and luck. What’s the story behind your name? I was the head chef in a hotel restaurant in China, and I was the slimmest among more than 50 people in the kitchen. They nicknamed me “Skinny.” When I came to work in America, my boss called me Skinny, too. I couldn’t get away from it! How do we order your favorite meal in Mandarin?

“I don’t eat honey. There’s something about it. I’m not sure what, I haven’t quite figured it out.” —APRIL BLOOMFIELD
“I hate lobster! And I like raw fish, but I’m not a fan of shellfish at all.” — GIGI HADID

With legendary Pierre Weber of Pierre’s Restaurant What’s new? Our menu! We worked on it all winter.

We sell them like cupcakes! What’s the best way to score a prime table? I’d love to see you eating dinner on a Wednesday in February. I’ll remember your face! You’re quite the gracious host. At the restaurant, I receive people and pay attention to them the same way I would if they came to my home. It’s like a big party. What’s your tipples strategy? We have 550 different wines on the menu, and this summer, we’re introducing two new cocktails.

NEW RECORD ALERT!
$1 47 M
A Further Lane home in East Hampton broke records in May by ringing in at $147 million—and there wasn’t a single real estate agent who aided with the sale. Hedge funder Barry Rosenstein now owns the 18-acre estate dreamed up by the late investor Christopher H. Browne and his boyfriend, architect Andrew Gordon. Little is known about the maison itself, but the previous owner installed a water lily pond, a wildflower meadow, an apple orchard and over a thousand different types of trees.

This massive manse comes with a heated pool and a tennis court, along with a twolane bowling alley, a rock-climbing wall, a half-pipe, a flower-cutting room, and a media lounge decked out with five plasma TVs. Buzziest Feature: That would be the in-house ATM, stocked with $20,000 of $10 bills. Bonus Trivia: Beyoncé and Jay Z shacked up here for a month last August, reportedly dropping $400,000 for a one-month stay. Let’s just say there was enough space for baby Blue Ivy to explore.
Meadow Lane in Southampton Selling Points: The sprawling modern manse sits on 10 acres. What’s Inside: Plenty of ultra-Calvin touches, like sliding doors that allow each room to be transformed and a separate building that houses a screening room. New furnishings by the likes of Poul Kjaerholm are mixed with vintage pieces by Jean Prouvé and Le Corbusier. Over five years of renovations, and three architects on the project: John Pawson, Michael Haverland, and Fred Stelle. Buzziest Feature: The abundance of windows and lack of front hedge. There aren’t many hiding spots in this glass-paneled home, and even the shower is visible from the street.

ALL POINTS NORTH
Tired of Hamptons flash? Drive on out to the North Fork, where a tastemaker can relax in peace! Jewelry designer Paige Novick and her husband David Hoffman show us how itâ€™s done. BY PAIGE REDDINGER PHOTOGRAPHY BY STEFANIA CURTO
FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y. C O M
So Paige, what’s your secret to a great party? Good friends, good food, and good wine. How often does this group throw dinner parties? There’s one every weekend. Every now and then we pepper it with a night out at a restaurant, but we always kick off the summer with a dinner. All our houses have different themes and settings. How would you describe the style of your home? Ours is a little less structured, and a little more boho. We love to play with color. The house is just another creative expression. What were your ﬁrst impressions of the North Fork? I had grown up going out to Amagansett, so I didn’t really know the North Fork. I loved how it was so beautiful and quiet and simple and not sceney, and I loved that I didn’t have to wear makeup. But I learned that the hard way. What were you wearing? Well, 10 years ago, I came here and met my now-husband David’s friends for the first time, which include several of the people at this party. I came down the stairs in a lavender silk Catherine Malandrino slip dress and platform sandals. It was not inappropriate for East Hampton, but here, I felt like all eyes were on me. They still make fun of me for it. So they ﬁnally let you into the club? I was already a little bit nervous, because they were a very tight-knit posse. Coincidentally, one of the guests spilled wine all over me. Maybe it was done intentionally—I’m not asking questions! But whether they liked me or not, everybody was so spirited, creative, passionate, and down-to-earth. I thought, “This is my group.” But yes, they finally let me into the club. Does the North Fork inspire your jewelry designs? I used to draw my inspiration from the North Fork, but now I’ve become a little less organic, and a little more geometric and sculptural. When I first started designing jewelry, the women in this group were the first to wear it. Linda is wearing the first necklace I ever designed. Care to share your memories of the wildest North Fork parties? One summer, probably eight or nine years ago, Linda and Nancy rented a house
with a pool, and late one night we blasted the music and went swimming. I don’t remember if clothes were involved or not, but we had a blast! And the theme parties we throw every summer are always wild. Theme parties? Tell us more. Last year’s was all about Bollywood. We usually have two months to figure out what we’re going to wear, but Linda always outdoes everybody with her costume. For the Bollywood party, Linda said she already had everything in her closet, which was the best part. What did you wear? Printed Kenzo pants, a bright silk top, and lots of jewelry. This year, it’s going to be Liz and Dick. I’m going to channel Butterﬁeld 8. Who is the life of the party? She’s not here, but it’s EJ Camp. But you know what? We all have our moments.
I loved how it was so beautiful and quiet and simple and not sceney, and I loved that I didn’t have to wear makeup.
• Paige’s Menu • Cocktail: Tequila with watermelon Wines: A Croteaux rosé and a Bedell cab/merlot/sauvignon blend Appetizers: Ceviche, local cheeses, crackers, and fig cake Dinner: Softshell crabs Shrimp scampi Lentils with carrots and cumin Fresh roasted asparagus with chèvre fennel, orange, arugula, and walnut salad Dessert: Rhubarb, blackberry, and strawberry crumble with salted caramel ice cream from the Magic Fountain in Mattituck
Linda Fargo, SVP, Bergdorf Goodman What’s new in the North Fork? Artists are starting to settle here— it’s kind of like Soho, in a way. Every year we all call each other alarmed, because The New York Times will do a piece on the North Fork. But historically, this area is more working-class, so it doesn’t have the kind of grand properties that the South Fork has. It’s very humble and much more simple. How did this group come together? Some of our crew is kind of incestuous, if you can imagine! Some of us have kind of dated each other over the years at one time or another—let’s just put it that way. Who is the best cook? Greg. He has a certain style to his cooking—it’s got to be spontaneous, a little homemade. He’s actually allergic to buying an electric or gas grill. He’d rather take an old oil drum or something, chop off the bottom, and rest it up on rocks and build a real caveman fire.
Libby Wadle, president of J.Crew How did you end up here? My husband and I met everyone through our mutual friends EJ Camp and Laura Weil. We’re the latest to this group. There’s not a huge social scene out here, but there are small groups. We wanted a place to escape to every weekend, and we couldn’t picture raising our kids in the Hamptons. We wanted more of a small-town feeling. There are a lot of people here who work in fashion and art.

David Hoffman, From left to right: Nellie Ramsey, Nancy Feldman, and Libby Wadle
Nancy Feldman, executive VP and general merchandise manager of Kohl’s How long have you been coming out here? Not as long as Greg, but close to 20 years. Greg kind of invented the North Fork. Actually, the first year I came out I shared a house with David [Hoffman]! Do work ideas ever evolve out of these parties? No, because we’re all so competitive. But none of us live without being connected, in some way, to what we do.
Most of my friends out here are photographers, writers, artists, and people in the fashion industry. —David Hoffman

Frederic V. Blanchard and his wife Beatrice de Quervain Blanchard
managing partner, Cathay Capital Private Equity We live in a 100-year-old barn; I bought the house the same day that I called Paige for our first date. We spent the first year converting it. We redesigned everything to make it feel like we had stumbled upon the house in the ’50s or the ’60s, fully furnished. Why the North Fork? I started coming out here 25 years ago. It was very bucolic, and the vineyards were just starting to pop up. The local farm movement was also starting with places like Satur Farms and KK’s and other places that are sources for city restaurants. It was low-key—no traffic, no fancy restaurants. It’s much, much smaller than the Hamptons. Most of my friends out here are photographers, writers, artists, and people in the fashion industry. Also, in the ’30s, Einstein spent summers here!
Beatrice de Quervain Blanchard, former North American president of Hublot and a partner in distribution and branding company WinHouse Corp. What’s your North Fork history? My husband Frederic and I built our house nine years ago. We come out every weekend. We’re able to relax, shed off the stress of the city, and meet wonderful people like Paige and David. It’s a very low-key setting. I’m from Switzerland and Frederic is from France, but we’ve
been in New York for the past 17 years. First we had a house up in the Catskills, and all of a sudden we discovered the North Fork and fell in love. How does it compare to European spots? It reminds me a little bit of Bordeaux, where Frederic comes from. There are 35 vineyards on the North Fork. But it doesn’t compare to Switzerland, because there, we don’t have the sea.

Boy talk! With Aussie model Jordan Stenmark, whose work with his brother Zac has charmed the fashion world. So Jordan, how often do you guys work together? About half the time. Sometimes clients only need one of us, but other times, they’re focusing on the twin thing. Any cool recent projects? We recently shot for Vanity Fair. What’s the Australian equivalent of the Fourth of July? Australia Day on January 26. Everyone gets together for a BBQ or picnic, and there are the most amazing fireworks around Sydney Harbor. FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y. C O M
You already know about Sailor’s world-famous mother. What’s yours like? Our mum was a model back in the ’80s, and she was also a physical education teacher. She has done an amazing job raising four kids. We have so much respect and appreciation for her. In Australia, you competed on Dancing With The Stars. Would you ever join the American cast? We’d love to. The experience was amazing. Our goals are to move into television and film and continue working with major fashion clients.
Sailor’s Delight Sailor Brinkley Cook, 16, the gorgeous progeny of Christie Brinkley and Peter Cook, is making her maiden voyage into the wild world of modeling. And, yes, mom is fully on board! BY EDDIE ROCHE How was the shoot? Have you ever been on a double date like that? No, but I’d love to. I don’t want to meet a guy at, like, a club. Not that I can get into one. I���m still a teenager! I want to go on a nice little double date with my best friend. Can you tell the Stenmark twins apart? Yeah, Zac has longer hair. Speaking of Zacs, we hear you’re a Zac Efron fan. When I was little, I saw him in High School Musical and was like, ‘We’re going to get married!’ Then, a couple of years later, we were vacationing on the same island, and we ended up in the same Zumba class. 0n New Year’s Eve, he asked me to dance, and I was like, ‘Gaaaah!’ Do you still want to marry him when you turn 21? How old will he be? Thirty seven? Sounds about right. Where did you grow up? I was born in Manhattan, but raised in Bridgehampton and Sag Harbor. My mom has wanted to move back to the city at times, but I’ve always said, ‘no.’ I like being able to breathe! It doesn’t smell like gas out here. Did you always want to model? Not at all. My mom was always just my mom. I didn’t really think about how unique it is that her career has lasted for 45 years. I never really thought of doing it myself until I turned 14 when everyone kept asking me why I wasn’t doing it. I’m so happy I tried it. It’s fun! When I was younger I wanted to be a comedian, but I realized not everyone thought I was funny. Don’t give up so easily! How else do you stay busy? I’m interested in photography, so I want to study it for the rest of high school and see where it takes me. Are you a fussy eater? I’m gluten-free, and I was raised as a vegetarian. I’ve been vegan for a little over a year. It was very hard to give up cheese, but I made the decision after I went on a trip to Italy and sort of maxed out on it. So no cheeseburgers on the Fourth of July then. Nope. Never. You just turned sixteen. What’s your favorite car? There’s a blue Volkswagen Beetle that I’ve had my eye on. Why did they name you Sailor, by the way? My mom and my dad both love the ocean, and sailing is my mom’s favorite thing to do. Are you a sailor yourself? I know how! FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y. C O M
I wanted to be a comedian, but I realized not everyone thought I was funny.
Kiss & Tell with model Virginia Kiss What’s your background? I’m half-Hungarian and half-Bolivian. I grew up in Budapest. My mom teaches kindergarten and my dad’s a mathematician. How’s your math? It’s not my forte. I’m more likely to end up a teacher like my mom. How were you discovered? I live in London now, and IMG Models had a casting call. I went to their offices, and they signed me up right away. Did you always want to be a model? Not really. It just sort of happened. When did you learn English? When I came to London. I’ve lived there for two years now, and it was really hard in the beginning. What are your favorite beaches? I love Brighton, outside of London, and Balaton Lake in Hungary. What do you do in your spare time? I paint and I sing. It depends on my mood. Do you like karaoke? Yeah, I do! I’m learning “Someone Like You,” by Adele with my vocal teacher at the moment. Have you ever been to Virginia? No, never. It’s one of my dreams, though! Why are you named Virginia? It comes from my mom. She’s also a Virginia, and her mom was a Virginia, and her mom’s mom was a Virginia. Everybody’s a Virginia! Safe to assume if you have a daughter, she’ll be a Virginia, too? Oh, yeah. In honor of July 4th, what’s the most American thing about you? Americans are very open. They think positively, and they’re always happy. I’m the exact same way!

Who better to celebrate Independence Day with than Tommy Hilfiger? The star-spangled super-designer talks mega-yachts, pop art and the importance of staying cool. BY EDDIE ROCHE PHOTOGRAPHY BY GIORGIO NIRO How did you become so synonymous with the stars and stripes? It was organic. I’m an American designer who loves Americana, whether it’s the Grand Canyon, Cape Cod, New England, Miami, or L.A. I love American film, American music, American landscapes, all of it. This country has so much richness. Would you ever think about running for president? Not in a million years! You’d be good! Maybe as veep? I’ll gladly leave that to someone else. What pops into your mind when you think of the Fourth of July? Family. Obviously, my color scheme—red, white, and blue. I also think of picnics, cookouts, clambakes, and old-fashioned parades. Norman Rockwell images also come to mind. Anything nautical—boating, yachting, sailing— connects back to the red-white-and-blue sensibility I have in my bones, so to speak. How did you celebrate during your youth? I have eight brothers and sisters and multiple cousins, so we would all get together and do a barbecue, play badminton, fish, and play all sorts of games. Do you eat hot dogs? I don’t now, but I did then. Hamburgers? Hamburgers, I eat! Also, corn on the cob, macaroni salad, potato salad, pickles, chips. The real Americana fare. What are your summer plans? We’re going to Europe for most of July. We’ll be on a yacht in the South of France and the Mediterranean—Sardinia, Corsica, Portofino, and Capri. Are you able to fully unplug from work? I set aside parts of each day to disconnect. I may not be able to answer every single email right away, but I try. What’s an average day like on your yacht? We’re in and out of ports a lot. We go to lunch, and maybe dinner, and go shopping and get some exercise, whether it’s running in the village or using the treadmill on the boat. If the weather’s not so good, maybe we watch a movie. Otherwise, we go jet skiing, snorkeling, and swimming. Eating is definitely a favorite pastime. You live in Greenwich, Connecticut now. What do you love about the area? It’s very close to New York. You know, they call it “Greenwich,” but it’s really “Green-wich,” because it’s very green. I live in the backcountry. The rolling hills are beautiful. The ambience of being on the water but in the hills is pretty great. It’s almost idyllic—like a fairy tale. Tell us about this American flag-inspired artwork. It was made by my daughter, Ally. Twenty years ago, we went to the MoMA and looked at Jasper Johns’ work, and I told her one of my favorite paintings was his American flag, in either red, white, and blue, or white on white. She presented this to me 15 years ago as one of her important art projects. I’ve had it with me, either at home or in my private office, ever since. What are your most prized possessions? Outside of my children? Probably some of my artwork, like a Basquiat, a Haring, or a Warhol. I’m really a pop-culture addict—I love pop art, music,
and old Hollywood—but I’m probably more a fan of art than anything else. Years back, I was connected to music in a bigger way, but I think art has taken over. Did you know Andy Warhol? I did! I went to the Factory, and he personally took me through and showed me all the different things he was working on. I didn’t realize the importance of his work back then, but I knew it was very cool. I love the fact that he put fashion, art, music, and entertainment into a blender. He was the first pop-culture icon to put his arms around all that. He was quite genius. How would you describe him? Aloof, but very aware of what was going on. If he liked you, he really liked you. If he didn’t, you weren’t even in his scope. Did he like you? You could say we were friendly. He was always very open with me. At any given time, there was so much activity. It was so exciting. I love the fact that he collaborated with Basquiat. I have a couple of those pieces. For me, two American iconic artists painting on the same canvas sort of said it all. When did you first come to the Hamptons? In the early ’70s. I love the Hamptons. Everything is lighter and brighter, and you really feel like you’re on vacation. The sand is white. The ambience is very American—quite countrified on one hand, and chic on the other. I sold my house in East Hampton because we were spending more time in Europe and in Connecticut, but it’s a special place. If you were to visit the East End this weekend... I would probably be on the beach in Southampton. I would want to play tennis, go biking, eat at Sant Ambroeus, get together with friends, and take a ride to East Hampton to see what’s going on, or visit friends in Montauk. I need a long weekend! What are your weekend rituals? I play tennis and go biking or antiquing. I spend time with the family, and we might go out to dinner. What time do you wake up on a Saturday morning? Seven. I’m an early riser. What time do you go to bed? I’ll put it this way: I turn on Saturday Night Live and watch the first skit, but I can’t stay awake for the entire show. I exude a lot of energy in the daytime. What was your inspiration for the summer collection? It’s about an aspirational lifestyle. Wouldn’t you love to be a surfer in Southern California and hang out on the beach every day? As a young person, or as a teen or in your twenties, that surfer lifestyle is so cool because it’s so chill and relaxed, yet you’re doing an activity that has a whole community and lifestyle around it. That was the first time in quite a while when we made a conscious decision to be younger with our looks. What inspired that decision? After over 25 years in the business, a lot of the customers grow up with you, but we want to continue to capture the youth. The youth allow you to continue to make it cool. I never want to lose that cool factor. We love the youthquake.
We love the youthquake!

For a storybook escape, combine Scandinavian hospitality with superfine dining and a doting staff that anticipates your every need. It’s no Swedish fairy tale: It’s c/o The Maidstone, where 16 cozy rooms and three quaint cottages bring a much-needed dose of world-class hospitality to the Hamptons.

a Moment With… c/o The Maidstone owner Jenny Ljungberg
hat’s the vibe like at the hotel? We tend to attract a lot of creative people, like photographers, artists, and entrepreneurs. We definitely get a lot of dog owners and parents with their first kids, too. I see a lot of our guests sitting with a laptop and a glass of wine, which I can relate to. You take a refreshingly “Swedish” approach to hospitality. Please explain. We treat everyone like friends, calling our guests by their first names and sharing a drink or a cup of coffee with them. Swedes are extremely personable, especially on the management level. People often tell us that they love the relaxed atmosphere we provide. Have you had any outlandish requests? We have a lot of elaborate requests for wedding proposals, and we had one person that wanted us to fill up the bathtub with hot water, cover it with rose petals and make sure that there were a ton of candles burning everywhere. You’ve got a bunch of new offerings this summer. Give us the scoop.
We’re introducing c/o Afternoon, where anyone can come and hang out in our garden, sip champagne, and snack on skewers from the grill, all while a DJ plays music. And we’re also introducing a Beach Butler concept. If you’re a guest at the hotel you can get lunch delivered to you at the beach. It offers the luxury of the beach while enjoying the food from The Living Room. What are your favorite local haunts? I love going to the LongHouse Reserve, which is such a beautiful place. I always visit BookHampton, too, and local farm stands are such a treat. I often take one of the hotel’s bikes to the beach in Amagansett, and I’ll stop by the Hampton Chutney Company and pick up a hot chai. You have a lot of different types of rooms at the hotel. Which is your favorite? The Edvard Munch room, I think. It’s very dark, and the bathroom is completely black, including the toilet and bathtub. It also has amazing oversize chairs that are perfect for a couple on a romantic getaway.
The OTher SWediSh Chef! c/o The Maidstone’s Chef de Cuisine Mathias Brogie What made the cut for this summer’s menu? We used to have four big menu changes per year, but now we’re trying to rotate it every week with new dishes and add-ons. This will keep the menu up to date with what the local fishermen are catching. We always try to work with locally sourced ingredients. What’s your favorite dish these days? The Arctic char. What’s your preferred method of preparation? I love grilling. I’ll take a whole fish, season it with horseradish, dill, and brown butter, and throw it on the
grill. I let the freshness speak for itself. What’s the most requested dessert? The grilled pineapple and mango split with homemade sorbet is quite popular. We like to do modern, fruity, and fresh dishes for dessert. What’s the one Swedish dish Americans need to get more familiar with? I would love to see them try herring a bit more. Most restaurants here only serve herring in a cream sauce, but the Swedes have a variety of different preparations. I’m just obsessed with herring.
What were you up to before you started at c/o The Maidstone? I graduated from the Hotel and Restaurant School of Stockholm in 2000, and I was most recently working at the F12 Group, which owns some of Sweden’s most well-known restaurants. I started at c/o The Maidstone last August. What was your first big to-do upon arrival? The first thing I wanted to do was to modernize the menu and make the Scandinavian influences a bit more welcoming to the East End.
MeATBALLS ANd MidSUMMer!
Meet c/o The Maidstone’s general managers (and married couple!) Pär Bonér and Sophie Bonér Hindmarsh. What’s your favorite spot in the hotel? Pär Bonér: We love the round table by the bar, especially in the evening. It’s the perfect spot—kind of hidden, but it still allows you to follow the flow. Sophie Bonér Hindmarsh: When I need a break, I go and breathe in the back of the garden. You live next door to the hotel. Do guests ever accidentally wander into your house? PB: They do! When my niece was sunbathing in our yard recently, a photographer, model, and crew walked in and asked her to leave! And during the Hamptons International Film Festival, we found Stevie Nicks in the garden, doing an interview. With dogs allowed at c/o The Maidstone, does it ever feel like a zoo? PB: Oh, yeah! Especially when we have birthday parties for dogs in the lounge. Have other animals stayed at the hotel? SBH: Just some poor, declawed cats. When you’re not at work, how do you stay busy? PB: While I think I’m an up-and-coming surfer, I don’t know if I’ll ever be anything else. But I do enjoy being in the ocean anyway. SBH: I was a practicing yogi, but I’m on a break right now. Instead, I’ve been SoulCycling in my ‘me time,’ as

well as working on my food blog. Since you’re both Swedes, are you also Ikea regulars? SBH: Of course! I love Ikea—it feels like home! How do you feel about Ikea’s food situation? PB: I like their soft ice cream, and our kids eat the meatballs.

That’s like asking an Italian, ‘How do you feel about pasta?’ It’s definitely my favorite meal. I make them every Christmas and all throughout winter.

After conquering midtown Manhattan, Nobu cofounder Richie Notar is taking his seafood-centric Harlow concept to Sag Harbor. So what if it ruins his summer? BY ALEXANDRA ILYASHOV PHOTOGRAPHY BY STEFANIA CURTO
Congrats on the new spot! Why did you decide to open out east? You mean, why I did I decide to pretty much destroy my summer? [Laughs.] I guess there’s just something about the Hamptons that keeps pulling me back in. I’m like Pacino in The Godfather: Part III. I had a [Nobu] pop-up out here a few years ago and people have been asking me when I was going to do something like it ever since. I always said the opportunity had to be right, and when this space became available, I just couldn’t say no. It’s one of the only places out here where you can actually sit on the water and have a nice dinner! What’s your niche? In my experience, planning where to eat on a Friday or Saturday night can be completely exhausting when it should be relaxing. I want spontaneous diners, so we’re first-come, first-served. Worst-case scenario, you can always wait at the bar and watch the sunset with a margarita in your hand. I can think of worse places to wait for a table, that’s for sure. What’s been holding you back? This is a people-pleasing business, so it’s very hard to say no to people. I have a little boy who is 21 months old and an 8-year-old daughter, so that was a concern. But I said to my wife, ‘Listen, this opportunity has come about, and I think it’s really good, but you know what it will mean for this summer.’ She thought it was a no-brainer, and I had to do it. And so I did! Did you consider other locations? A few places called me, but it’s kind of like dating—you wind up picking the one you have a good feeling about. I love the outdoorsy aspect of this spot. There also wasn’t a lot of redesign needed. It was more of a polish-up. FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y. C O M
Did you modify Harlow’s menu? We always try to change up the menu, but I’m a big believer in winner dishes. Once you find them, you should keep them. But if we see fresh fish coming off a boat in Montauk, for example, we’ll buy some and put it on the menu that night. We’re trying to be as spontaneous as possible. So, what’s on the menu? Our shellfish platters are rocking; they go great with sparkling wine. The salmon isn’t a local fish, but it’s also great. We also do a wonderful lobster salad and a terrific softshell crab. Who’s your competition out east? Harlow East is very different from what’s out here now. There are five or six very good restaurants in Sag Harbor, but I don’t look at them as competition. They’re just other options. Where do you eat besides Harlow? My favorite place to eat is my house. I started as a chef, so I love cooking, and I’m darn good at it, if I do say so myself. I love fabulous burrata with heirloom tomatoes and balsamic, grilled branzino, a crisp Pinot Grigio, and grilled peach or watermelon for dessert. I could live on that. What’s your personal Hamptons history? I’ve been coming out here for over 30 years in one way or another. In 1991, I kind of got burned out [by New York] and I moved out to Montauk Manor for what I thought was going to be a month. It ended up being two years. I became a local, with a red pickup truck and a Jack Russell. Do you miss the old Montauk? I kind of do, yeah. It was a wonderful mix of artists, writers, and working fisherman. Now, it’s about driving around in a Bentley with the big house and a private chef. That’s all well and good, but I miss when it was about wearing shorts and having a BBQ at home. I want to see trees and deer. What’s your typical day in the Hamptons? I get up early with my young boy and my dog and check out the turkeys in our backyard. It’s pretty cool that my kids get to grow up seeing that. I grew up seeing squirrels! A little later, I go to farm stands, like Iacono Farms in East Hampton, which has great heirloom tomatoes. My kids like to feed their goats, and they have a chicken farm, too. After that, I’ll get a workout in, and maybe a swim. Sometimes I’ll run the three miles from my house to the restaurant, check who’s coming in that night, have a coffee, then run back home. What’s your pad like? My Hamptons house has five acres at the end of a road, on a nature reserve. When I’m with my family, it’s really nice to have that privacy. It was built in the ’80s, so it’s all white, with a flat roof. It has clean, simple lines. I redesigned it a couple of years ago to make it a little more industrial chic. I put in bright Brazilian stained wood and squared off some of the ’80s roundness. How does your daughter, Harlow, feel about a second restaurant bearing her name? She’s a little kid, so she doesn’t go around bragging about it or anything. But in her own quiet way, I think she’s extremely proud.

Designer Nicole Miller’s dinner parties are a seafood lover’s dream. Lobster risotto, fried oysters, bouillabaisse—you name it, it’s on the menu, made with the freshest ingredients from her favorite shellfish shack, The Dock House. BY ALEXANDRA ILYASHOV PHOTOGRAPHY BY GIORGIO NIRO Where are we? This is where I always get my lobsters! I love the place; I’ve been coming here for years. Their clam chowder and fried clams are amazing. Sometimes I just order 20 lobsters, take them out of the tins, lay them on a tray, put a towel over to keep them warm, and pretend I cooked them. I toss the bed of lettuce they come on, and keep the butter. I add more butter at home. So you doctor up the butter? No, no! I hate doctored-up butter. I find it extremely offensive when people put garlic in butter. And I don’t like drawn butter, either—I like the fat to stay. Got it. What’s your earliest seafood memory? I grew up going to Cape May, New Jersey, and I was always obsessed with lobster and clams. We’d go to this place called The Lobster House. My mom always made steamers, and she never knew how to get the sand out, so a little sand doesn’t bother me. One day, my dad brought home three dozen oysters and he really didn’t know how to open them, so he brought out all his tools from the garage. We got half of them open with a screwdriver and hammer. I’ve since learned how to open oysters. Any tips for first-time shuckers? You have to get one of those oyster knives and break the hinge. I’m still really impressed by people that can do it really fast. I can get a clam open a lot faster than an oyster. An oyster will always be a challenge. What’s your seafood pet peeve? Salmon. So much of it is farm-grown. If you don’t know where it came from, you shouldn’t go near salmon. What are your greatest seafood hits? I have this jalapeño clam-and-corn chowder. I took three or four people’s recipes and doctored them up. I also always do a tortilla shrimp soup, and I make great shrimp summer rolls, which I serve with a dab of hoisin. Do you ever serve raw fish? It’s all overrated! I mean, how much tuna tartare can you eat? Sushi all tastes the same because everyone drowns it in soy sauce and wasabi. It’s just not that interesting to me, though I do like the white tail with jalapeño at Nobu. Their sauces are amazing. But I hate mayo on sushi. It drives me crazy. Are you into lobster rolls? I’m not so interested. I’ll eat a mini one—for me,
NICOLE’S SEAFOOD STAPLES
LOBSTER SAFFRON RISOTTO Ingredients: 1/2 small onion, finely chopped 2 tbsp. olive oil 1 tbsp. butter 1 1/2 cups arborio rice 1/2 tsp. saffron threads Approximately 5 cups seafood or clam broth 1 cup white wine Lobster meat from a 1 1/2–pound lobster chopped into small chunks Directions: Heat broth in a saucepan to almost boiling; reduce heat to medium and add saffron. Melt butter in a large skillet and add olive oil. Sauté onions until soft but not brown. Add rice and stir with a wooden spoon over medium heat until translucent. Add the wine all at once and stir until absorbed. Add the broth 1/2 cup at a time until absorbed. Risotto is ready when the rice is firm but not crunchy. Add lobster. Season with salt and pepper as desired.
SUMMER ROLLS Ingredients: Rice papers (about 20) Rice stick noodles (1 package, cooked according to directions) Boston lettuce (1 head) Shrimp (1 lb., cooked and cleaned, cut in half lengthwise) Cilantro Mint Chives Hoisin sauce Large bowl of lukewarm water Cloth towels and paper towels Directions: Prepare all ingredients, and lay out cloth towel on counter. Dip rice paper in water until partially soft, but not soggy. Remove rice paper from bowl and lay out cloth towel. Pat dry with paper towel. Place half a leaf of lettuce, core removed, in center of rice paper. Put a handful of rice noodles, spread out lengthwise. Spread a small amount of hoisin sauce on top. Arrange three half shrimp lengthwise on top of noodles. Place two mint leaves and some cilantro on top. Fold rice paper tightly; form the roll. Fold in sides and finish roll. You may add two chives before rolling for decoration. If you are not serving right away, cover with wet towels. Just before serving, cut into halves or quarters with scissors. Serve with Nuoc Cham or your favorite peanut sauce.
they’re worth about a bite. And mussels? I was never big on mussels, but I started making them after I had them with pasta, lemon, and mint on a trip to Rome. What about uni? I’m obsessed. It’s so great on pasta with sliced avocado. Another obsession is bottarga. Usually cheese and fish don’t go together, but bottarga and crab work really well with cheese. Fried food: yes or non? Love it! I went to New Zealand, where they have incredible fried food. I ate the best fried oysters on the planet at this great restaurant, Euro. I bought the cookbook by its chef, Simon Gault. The fried oysters recipe had this weird ingredient, trisol. I was like, ‘What the hell is this?!’ I found it for $200 online. I thought the stuff must be like gold, it’s so expensive. I expected a small, sacred amount, and a huge tub of this super-pulverized powder arrived. On the label it said, ‘For more recipes, go to FerranAdria.com.’ I think he uses trisol a lot. Have you gotten much use out of your trisol stash? I used it at a fried-food dinner party I threw once, where I served all kinds of seafood. It was the first dinner party that I didn’t have any leftovers from. There wasn’t a single shrimp left. Let’s discuss spices. Any faves? Saffron! Saffron on lobster is just divine. Thoughts on Old Bay seasoning? It’s a gem! I love Utz’s Old Bay potato chips. Sometimes I throw Old Bay into fish stews. You obviously love eating fish. Do you like catching it, too? I love fishing! I do it a lot in Boca Grande, Florida. In the Hamptons, there are lots of restrictions. If they’re not a certain size, you have to throw them back. Do you do the gutting yourself? I can, but it’s better if someone else does it. I own the equipment to take scales off, though! I like to put a whole fish on the grill in tinfoil with sesame oil, cilantro, lemongrass, and ginger. When you need a night off from cooking, where do you get your fish fix? My biggies are Tutto Il Giorno, where I always order pasta, Sunset Beach for their calamari, and The Clam Bar, where I get clam chowder.
PLUS! Meet The Dock House’s owner, Andrea Shastid… Why did you decide to take over The Dock House nine years ago? My sons, Andrew and Alec, worked here when they were in college. I’d just finished my career as a pilot for UPS. I wanted another career, but I’d never been in the restaurant business. It was a greasy spoon, but I saw potential. Is it tricky being mom and boss simultaneously? It can be very trying. It’s like when they were growing up, all over again: “Noooo. Why is he leaving earlier than me?” But they’re both really helpful. What’s your lobster situation like?
We keep them in a vintage bathtub. We go through 50 or 60 per weekend. Who are the most extravagant orders from? Definitely the yacht people. It’s not uncommon to have an order for, say, 70 cooked lobsters and 50 shucked oysters. That’s a $1,000 order! What’s your hidden gem? Our seafood burger. Where else can you get shrimp, crab, and salmon all in one burger? 1 Long Wharf Rd., Sag Harbor Andrew Walker, Andrea Shastid, and Alec Walker

Don’t You Know Who I Think I Am?
Next time you’re headed out to the clubs, mind your manners and bring some cash! A frazzled East End clipboard queen spills the dirt on the Hamptons door scene. AS TOLD TO EDDIE ROCHE
FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y. C O M
What makes a good doorwoman? It’s a lot harder than being a doorman, obviously. People assume they can bully you, so you have to be kind of a bitch, but not in a way that makes people hate you, if that makes any sense. You also need to have a high tolerance for crazy drunk people who think the world revolves around them. If you can’t keep your cool when someone’s slurring in your face, it’s not the job for you. sounds like fun! Do you think there’s a double standard for women working the door? Well, if you’re a guy standing at the door with 40 drunk guys trying to get in, they’re probably not gonna smack your ass or make snide comments about your boobs. It’s just a whole other level of irritation. People out here feel entitled to everything, so you have to be able to balance feeling frustrated with wanting to slap them in the face and tell them how much you hate them. You can’t do that. Why not? Because it’s part of the job. I’m representing my venue, so I can’t slap them or start screaming at them. You have to let them get away with it a little bit but draw the line at the right time. If you really get nasty, you’ll get fired. You have to stay calm. how many door girls work at clubs in the hamptons? There’s very few. Overall I feel like 95 percent of the people who do the door are men. Do you think more women should be doing it? Yes! It brings an edge to the venue because most people walk up and expect to see a guy. Women are also really good at talking customers up on minimums. What do you mean by that? Part of your job at the door is to sell bottles. I’m not going to let a group of 10 guys in just to stand at the bar. They’re getting five bottles, minimum. It’s easier for a woman to do that. Do you dress the part? I’m very little, actually, so I normally wear six-inch heels to make me taller. I have a good relationship with my bouncers, so if anyone tries to get physical with me, they’re toast. Do guys ever try to bribe you? On every shift! I’ve been bribed with clothes to come in. I had some guy bring me a $500 cashmere sweater. He put it in a bag with a note, and said, “Please remember me all summer and I’ll take care of you every weekend.” Did you let him in? Of course I did. I love the sweater. What’s the most cash you’ve gotten? When I did the door at a now closed but famous venue out here, I got offered $500 to let someone in. Did you let them in? What do you think? It’s sort of an unwritten rule. When you’re doing the door during the summer you want to maximize making money for those few short months. People out here are throwing cash around. People will come up all the time and say stuff like, “I’ll take care of you if you take care of me.” You don’t know what they’re going to give you until you let them in! You can kind of judge based on what they’re wearing and the group they’re trying to get in with. On average it’s about $100. how long are the late-night lines, typically? They get insane because everyone goes out at the same time. They’re not lines, they’re mob scenes. We set up ropes and have bouncers trying to keep it uniform, but the problem is everyone is convinced they’re somebody important. The line becomes a clump. Are people still spending? It’s not nearly as nuts as it used to be. The scene has really
changed over the past five years. It went from being heavy, heavy bottle service, so people would go out and drop, like, $10,000 on a table. Now, it’s more like $2,000 to $5,000. Why do you think that is? Obviously, the economy has a lot to do with it, but nightlife also doesn’t have the same energy that it used to. Now, the people that have the money that used to come to clubs are going to different countries. They’re in the South of France or Ibiza or Greece or wherever. So the crowds have gotten younger. how much can a door person make on a good night? Normally, you get paid a set amount to work there a night, and then it really just kind of depends on how aggressive you are with the people at the door. You used to be able to make a lot more money than you do now. If I’m lucky, I’ll get $500. Does that include tips? It’s about $300 to $400 from the venue to do the door; the rest is tips. If you sell bottles then you can make commission off those, too. how can clubgoers make your job easier? The guys could start by dressing up a little. That’s the biggest thing I argue with people about—these idiots who show up in flip-flops and board shorts. I know it’s the Hamptons, but c’mon now! The other part is the aggression at the door. Patience is so important, and none of them have it. I’ll be in mid-conversation with someone and I’ll have three people yelling at me from the side and trying to grab my arm. That’s my biggest pet peeve. Don’t ever touch a door person. It’s exhausting putting up with these people for six hours a night. I have a lot of respect for people who’ve been doing it for a long time and still have patience. And then there are the drunks… We throw people out all the time. One of the drunkest and most annoying ones I’ve seen was this kid who walked up with a bunch of people and was clearly already wasted. His friends weren’t dressed appropriately, but he said he would come in with one friend, and they agreed to a two-bottle minimum. That doesn’t make any sense, but we’re like, “Fine. You want to do it? That’s your problem.” And then his credit card got declined. He had a smirk on his face the whole time and was trying to negotiate his minimum down after he had already basically drank two bottles between him and his buddy. Then he tried to sneak out. What did you do? We did what we always do. Called the cops and let them take care of it. I’m pretty sure he spent the night in jail and had a hangover from hell. Any other memorable moments? I wasn’t letting this female customer in one night because she was so bombed. She said to me, “You should know my name. My dad invented Bingo and Yahtzee.” One of the bouncers overheard her and said, “Milton or Bradley?” I’m not a fan of entitled rich kids, and there’s a lot of them out here. there are some nice people in the hamptons, too! There definitely are, there definitely are. I just see the evil side of it. Are you jaded? I try not to be, but it takes a toll. Do some doormen get off on being mean? For sure. Why? It’s an outlet for their frustrations. There are times when I go and do the door I can find myself taking my bitchiness a little too far, just because I can. Then there’s the other ones who just do it because they’re trying to live up to the persona of a door guy. And so they feel like they have to be a badass. I know a few who work in the city, in particular, and they’re just the evilest people. So angry all the time! I just don’t understand that. I get that the job can be stressful, but they internalize it, and it makes them pissed off at the world. Don’t be like that. I won’t, I promise!
People come up to me all the time and say stuff like, ‘I’ll take care of you if you take care of me.’ But you don’t know what they’re going to give you until you let them in!

CHIC Retiree “No matter how doped-up I was, my grooming was impeccable.”
Meet Grass is Greener, the East End’s most outspoken retired racehorse. After a drug -fueled career on the international circuit, he’s clean, sober, happier than ever, and living out his days in a trailer in Springs. We stopped by to say “hay!’” BY EDDIE ROCHE
Hi there, fella. How’s it hanging? Twenty-three inches and slightly to the left. Pardon? Sorry, that was a little barnyard humor. I’m alright, I guess. The flies are driving me nuts, but what else is new? How did you end up in the Hamptons? I was bred outside Buenos Aires, but never really knew my parents—my dad was a famous stud and my mom was completely lame. I was shipped off to Kuwait at 24 months, and lived in nine countries by the time I was four. By six, I was mixed up in the dope scene, doing all sorts of stuff to get by. Selling my seed, cheesy calendars, bit parts on Dynasty, the whole nine yards. I bottomed out at Saratoga in 2010, kicked my groom in the face, and finally got sober. They put me out to pasture in 2011, and it’s been one neigh at a time ever since. Sounds pretty glamorous. Oh, the stalls I’ve slept in! A few weeks in Dubai here, a month in Wellington there, day trips to Kentucky—the nice part of Kentucky. I had a mare in every stable! No matter how doped-up I was, my grooming was impeccable. I sowed my oats, kid! FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y. C O M
I was bred outside Buenos Aires, but never really knew my parents.
Sure sounds like it. Are you friends with the other retirees out here? Some of them, sure. I don’t hang with the jumpers, though. They remember me from the old days and have trouble understanding my accent. What about the working horses? The neigh-listers, you mean? They’re over at Maidstone Stables and Rose Hill Farm acting like their you-know-what doesn’t stink. Trust me, it does! You can smell it from across the street. I mean, the egos on these kids with their Hermès saddles and titanium shoes. Do you ever miss the high life? I still get a taste now and then. I can go to my grave knowing I’ve had Madonna’s legs wrapped around my waist and that my barn was in the April 2003 issue of AD. We’re all headed to Elmer’s Farm eventually. All this pageantry is a bunch of B.S. How’s your diet going? I know you were trying to slim down for summer. I’m pleased to report that I finally kicked my molasses habit. The steroids trashed my kidneys so I’ve gotta be careful. What’s the hardest thing about being out to pasture? These days? Not too much. I’ve still got people on my back all day long, which is murder on my quads, but it’s mostly kids now. It could be worse. You should see these little monsters. The other day I heard one of them complaining that she was late for her massage! She’s nine! I just try to laugh. Do you ever get teased about your name? By who? Lovely, Lovely? Lollipops? It’s sort of a mutually assured destruction situation out here. Whose shoes would you never want to gallop in? I don’t envy the crew in Central Park, that’s for sure. When they aren’t dragging lard-assed tourists around, they’re posing for selfies with their pimply kids. Talk about indignity! What’s your favorite day of the year? Like most of the locals, I pray for Labor Day. Why are you so dressed up, by the way? It’s called dressage, son. I’m old-school. I thought this was a serious publication! COURTESY
