L E TTE R F RO M T H E EDITOR

DEAR READERS, I HAVE KNOWN Charlie de Viel Castel since I was 20 years old. I met him on my year abroad, in a Parisian nightclub called Les Bains Douches, sitting with his arm around supermodel Ines Sastre. My memory of Charlie that night was of a charming guy who was good at hanging out with supermodels. So far, so French. Since that evening, our paths have crossed every now and again, but it wasn’t until I heard he’d designed a line of jewelry that we started really talking. As a fellow beachcomber, I was intrigued by the notion of fastening

diamonds to stones he found on the beach. I became more interested when I learned his idea was inspired by his glamorous and spirited grandmother. In the six months since Charlie and I started chatting about this cover, I’ve watched CVC Stones grow with what appears to be breathtaking ease. Not only do I see his necklaces on loads of pretty, social women around town, but I’ve been completely captivated by his Instagram feed: a view into a cultivated world as rare as it is chic. Or as one comment on a recent post said, “Your gram is dope!” I fully agree. Charlie’s also not afraid to admit that he’s just at the beginning of his artistic path, and in collaborating with the more experienced Eugenie Niarchos, he’s found someone who has an equal understanding and love of their craft. As you can see from the 6 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2016

otherworldly and beautiful pictures of her wearing their Constellation line, Eugenie makes the perfect model for the jewelry, but she is more than a mere mannequin. With more than ten years in the jewelry business under her belt, she’s been a great partner for Charlie as he continues to expand his vision. Watch this space: I think this is just the start of the CVC story. We’re also thrilled to have an exclusive article by our editor-at-large Helena Gautier on her travels to one of the most remote parts of India to observe the work of Elephant Family, a NGO that protects the Asian elephant, and which was cofounded by the late Mark Shand. After his tragic death, Elephant Family’s work has been carried on by CEO Ruth Powys and creative director Lexi Bowes-Lyon, and given royal patronage by TRH the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge. It speaks volumes about the close ties of the royal family that the duke and duchess were willing to travel to a far-flung area of India in order to rally to Mark Shand’s cause. Elephant Family is staging a parade of painted elephant sculptures out east all throughout July and having an auction and party to celebrate World Elephant Day on August 12. Sounds like it would have been just the kind of shindig Mark Shand would have loved. Enjoy the Issue! Daisy Prince

H

ow I wish I could give you all the pithy info and the well-deserved, detailed accolades for all the fab events that crammed themselves into what felt like the busiest spring season ever. But much like speed dating (I would imagine), I can only give you frustratingly quick snippets. Let’s start with love—the beginning of one marriage and the celebration of a very long one. Both were held in the same venerable (unnamed) men’s club that nimbly converted into a very coed, music- and joyfilled love nest. Amanda Ross and Zack Bacon were married in a small family service, then welcomed their legions of friends to the nightclub converted by Antony Todd into a sleek, chic space with nods to their southern and fashionable backgrounds. Their first dance was to Darius Rucker’s “Wagon Wheel” as hundreds of Ladurée Marie Antoinette cakes were nibbled and DJ Nick Cohen turned up the tunes. Later that month, Jamee and Peter Gregory celebrated 45 years of marital bliss, held at the same spot, but with a mariachi band—an homage to Jamee’s choice of Mexico for their honeymoon, over what would be the last crossing of the SS France—Peter’s choice. He forgave her—big-time. Amanda and Zack Bacon The Fountain House presented its Symposium and Luncheon, about the tough but important subject of suicide. Presenter Rosie O’Donnell introduced Sheila Nevins, president of HBO Documentary Films, as “the person I want to be when I grow up.” Chairs were Lorna Graev, Podie Lynch, Patricia Begley, Kitty de Chazal, Caroline McKenzie, Anne Mai and Alexandra Herzan. One of my favorite spring lunches is Rockefeller University’s Women & Science Annual Lecture and Luncheon. This year, Cynthia Kenyon, Ph.D., vice president of Aging Research at Calico (a venture launched by the founders of Google), discussed breakthroughs in slowing the aging process. Attendees included Julia Koch, Sydney Schuman, Jessica Hart, Marnie and Blair Pillsbury, Nancy Kissinger, Dr. Samantha Boardman, Eliza Bolen and the president of Rockefeller University, Marc Tessier-Lavigne, Blythe Danner, Kim and Michael McCarty Ph.D., who has announced he will be the president of Stanford and Jay McInerney University; he’ll be replaced by Yale’s Dr. Richard Lifton. I think we have all spent more time at the iconic Four Seasons in the last six months than the last six years! The Lighthouse Guild for the Blind held their POSH Affair Dr. Samantha Boardman and honored philanthropist Margo Catsimatidis, designer B. Michael, artist Kim McCarty and her hubby, restaurateur Michael McCarty. They were introduced by Blythe Danner, Jay McInerney and Cicely Tyson. A few nights later, Pete Peterson, from his longtime perch on the banquettes at the Four Seasons, feted his daughter Holly Peterson and her new book, Smoke and Fire: Recipes and Menus for Entertaining Outdoors, with pals including Perri Peltz, Ali Wentworth, Alexandra Styron, Charles Fagan, Peter Manning, Danielle Ganek and Liz Smith. I finished my season at the intimate Boys’ Club of New York’s Annual Awards Dinner, which Sara Ayres, Amy Griffin and Kitty Sherrill raised almost $1.2 million to go toward their outstanding work. They honored Jacqueline Williams for her almost 30 years of dedication to the organization, and Bill Tyree, who has been appointed president of the board after his 26 years of service as a trustee. Many of the ladies, including Amy Griffin, Sara Ayres, Betsy Pitts and Kitty Sherrill, sparkled brightly in sponsor Nirav Modi’s dazzling diamonds. We all received keys—three of which would open the jewelry chest at their Madison Avenue store and reward the right person with a very special piece of jewelry. Then we descended on the store for breakfast the following Tuesday and, in a scene reminiscent of the wicked stepsisters each unsuccessfully cramming a foot into Jamee and Peter Gregory Jacqueline Williams and Bill Tyree Cinderella’s lost slipper, we tried our keys . . . but alas, no fit yet! ✦

MODERN LOVERS

IN THE SPIRIT OF RIO

New York Times bestselling author Emma Straub debuted her latest novel, Modern Lovers, on May 31.

Fans of the author, who also penned The Vacationers, will be able to meet her at Harbor Books in Sag Harbor on July 16. Visit harborbookssgh.com for additional information.

TOASTHAMPTON: HOW TO SUMMER IN STYLE By Katie Sturino HarperCollins Publishers

No one knows how to enjoy the good life better than Toast, the social-media-famous King Charles Spaniel puppy mill rescue. With her toothless smile and long tongue, Toast has amassed more than 357,000 followers on social media. A staunch advocate against puppy mills, Toast has released her first book, Toasthampton.

SUCCESSFUL PHILANTHROPY: HOW TO MAKE A LIFE BY WHAT YOU GIVE By Jean Shafiroff Hatherleigh Press

It’s giving for the new millennium! Written by Hamptonite and philanthropist Jean Shafiroff, Successful Philanthropy is a practical guide to modern giving that redefines philanthropy. The book describes how to give, empowering all readers to take part in building a better world. Says Shafiroff, “Describing yourself as a philanthropist may seem off at first. For some people, being a philanthropist sounds like something limited only to those who gives large financial gifts. But the truth is that philanthropy is accessible to anyone.” The book features an introduction by Georgina Bloomberg, who combined her passions as an equestrian and a philanthropist to launch her charitable venture, the Rider’s Closet.

ME BEFORE YOU By Jojo Moyes Penguin Books

First published in the UK in 2012, Me Before You has been on the New York Times bestseller list of late, as the hype for the movie adaptation grows. The romantic novel is a tearjerker, one that a reader should intend to save for rainy days but won’t be able to put down even under the brightest of Hamptons skies. Moyes tells the story of Louisa and Will, whose lives become intertwined when Lousia, an unambitious working-class girl, becomes caretaker to Will, a wealthy, adventurous man whose lifestyle is inhibited when he becomes paralyzed in a motorbike accident. As the two develop their relationship, Louisa makes it her mission to show Will that life is always worth living. ✦

DOG DAYS Reflecting on a “Ruff” Life in the Hamptons

M

ost people (and maybe even most dogs) know that before 9 a.m. and after 6 p.m., certain Hamptons beaches are canine paradise. When my husband and I started spending the summers in Bridgehampton, I pledged to visit the beach three times a day: a long morning walk with Shuggie and Honey, my two incorrigible pugs; a midday dip; and again, a sunset “check-in,” which was sometimes as simple as me driving down to the beach with the dogs just to watch the end of the day. The morning was my favorite time—on a good day, the air is warm but not too hot, the sky streaked pink, and the sand still a bit damp and cool under bare feet. Surfers loom on the ocean’s horizon, and it is quiet; the only sound is the crash of the waves, happy barks and the occasional voice calling an unleashed dog as it fetches tennis balls and Frisbees or gets into trouble with washed-up crab or fish carcasses. Though not athletic nor buoyant, my “lapdogs” loved walking on the beach, and their ears and noses would prick up as I headed toward the dead end of Ocean Road. In the morning, on the beach, the same person you might’ve fought with over a parking spot at Citarella the day before is now smiling and greeting you with a cheery “Good morning”—a mutual recognition of the worthy reward of rising early to forge the sand’s first footprints. Of course, dog people are a breed onto themselves, and the regulars have a well-trod routine. Those with hounds—the Weimaraners or the beagles—need to walk for miles to exhaust their hunter-dog energy, while the golden retriever and Labrador owners are tireless ball throwers, endlessly amused as they watch their pets romp gleefully into the waves as if it were the first time their floppy paws ever touched ocean water. The surfer dogs sit like statues on the shore, with their eyes fixed on their masters in the water, sometimes tracking them as they roll down the beach.

Pugs are notorious for their sociability, and mine were not afraid to jump up on strangers or trot directly in the path of an intensely focused fitness walker. Their short, curly tails would wiggle like that of a windup toy as they peered up at their target with bulging eyes, so eager to please that they easily won over even the most undog-friendly. The dogs and I would either head toward Sagg Pond, watching the progress of sprawling, shingle-style mansions rise up on the far side of the marshy inlet, or, if we turned right, stroll past the 1970s California-style beach shacks. And, this being the Hamptons, we saw a parade worthy of the

H A M P T O N S MO M EN T Westminster Kennel Club Dog Show: perfectly groomed poodles neatly marching at the water’s edge, a pair of giant Great Danes being driven like carriage horses, fluffy Pomeranians kicking up sand, hyper spaniels dashing after every seagull. I rarely learned the names of these owners, but always exchanged the names of our dogs: Pippa, Yogi, Bodie, Angus, the occasional Rocky. Watching dogs play was a wonderful, almost meditative way to start the day, a reminder of life’s simple pleasures. As the years passed, hipper, midcentury-style houses replaced the beach shacks, my children were born, and true morning beach walks become more infrequent and complicated. If we made it down at all, we would bring the kids to crawl around on a beach towel or play with sand toys (along with every other Bridgehampton family also up early with young children). When Shuggie and Honey died within months of each other in 2010, a little black pug puppy, Winnie, joined the family, and she took to the beach as naturally as her predecessors. By now, the kids were avid beachgoers and ocean lovers just like we were, and they insisted on another

My “lapdogs” loved walking on the beach and their ears and noses would prick up as I headed toward Ocean Road. dog that was not a pug—one that would fetch and swim like the dogs they saw frolicking in the morning. Lola, a shy, underweight, year-old goldencollie mutt from Appalachia, seemed to satisfy the children’s checklist, on paper at least. But on her first trip to the beach, she froze

and clung to my side, scared of the other dogs and terrified of the water. But we continued to introduce her to the ocean, keeping her on the leash at first to ease her into the sights, smells and sounds of the morning beach world. Five years later, Lola won’t swim or fetch, but now she kicks up her heels and charges the beach as soon as she arrives, and then the hound in her trawls with her nose glued to the ground, stopping at every seaweed clump or leftover picnic while Winnie yaps and nips in her wake. These days, the kids sleep late, so it is easier for me to slip out alone with the dogs for a quick walk, and I am never sure if it is me or the dogs who need the morning sea air more. Down on the beach, the retrievers are still retrieving, the terriers still tenaciously digging holes in the sand, and the surfers and fishermen are still out on the water, looking to capture that perfect ride or a hard-won bluefish. There are some different faces too: young families, camped out with coffee and baby equipment that remind me of mine in the early days, as well as those of the new canine companions of the same people I’ve been saying hello to for these past 15 years. ✦

LORD O F T HE MA N N E R

ALL ABOUT ETIQUETTE There’s more to manners than just “please” and “thank you.” Here, his Lordship shares all the charming tips and tricks

Q:

To The Right Honourable: I was recently at a sit-down dinner at the Southampton home of the daughter of one of the great media titans when I noticed someone tapping at her chin in my direction from across the table. Naturally, I smiled and tapped back. Before long, it started to resemble some Astaire-Rogers duet. Was this some sort of flirtatious Morse code I’ve not caught on to? Oddly enough, after we got up from the table, I couldn’t find her anywhere. But during lunch, she couldn’t take her eyes off me (or my chin). Now my heart’s been playing taps ever since.

Why is it that the most elementary table manners have fallen by the wayside? Do rest your arms at wrist level at the table. Do use a piece of bread or your knife (not your fingers) to rustle up those edibles that can’t be singlehandedly assembled on one’s fork. Do not stack the dishes! Manners has himself almost fainted, upon seeing in the best of homes this unseemly sight at dinner’s end (thank God He is never without his smelling salts. Or flask of Remy Martin). Whether at a posh luncheon or a family dinner, thou shalt not scrape and stack! One needn’t hire footmen to remove, one by one, unscraped

Tapped Out Bridgehampton

Dear Tone Deaf, Tsk, tsk, tsk. Or, rather, tap, tap, tap. I’m sorry to inform you that your tap-dancing lunch mate had no amorous intentions on tap. She was signaling to you, my dear lad, that there was a rather visible morsel of food ensconced in your front teeth (hopefully not of the Jolly Green Giant variety. Let us pray). Her modus operandi was entirely correct (even if shunning you later was horrid). Chin up: Next time, excuse yourself and pry loose the foreign object wedged within your front caps (need we mention that public flossing is as heinous as clipping your toenails at Gibson Beach). Your charming ignorance of The Lord’s Manners: Etiquette 101 (see Bloomsbury Press; 105th edition, thanks to rubes like you) brings to light the glaring absence these days of the most basic of table manners. Much to his horror, He Himself has noticed flagrant misbehavior à la table, including some of the finest homes within a chip and a putt of the Maidstone. While at a dinner party on Lily Pond Lane, I had the misfortune of watching an arm repeatedly reach across me for a platter of tenderloin (almost toppling my glass of 1990 claret). “Please pass the beef ” would have sufficed. Even if it takes an eternity to receive your helping, No Reaching Across The Table!

dishes to the kitchen. That’s what kids are for. It makes for good breeding as well as excellent exercise for the digestion. If this atrocious practice of “stacking” isn’t corrected immediately, I fear the worst: philistines obsessed with the modernity of their kitchen more than the appearance of their dining room (please don’t get me started on wraparound sectional sofas) will soon be installing the dish washer at the head of the table. One final “note”: Do write a thank-you note to your host or hostess. A bona fide note, that is. With pen and paper. Not doing so is as conspicuous as forgetting to wipe your lips and leaving a smudge on your glass. It is never too late to dash off a thank you or wipe away poor table manners. Make a note of it.

LORD O F T HE M A N N E R

Q:

Dear Your Lordliness, My girlfriend and I recently had a row—a big one—on her birthday. I know I was in the right: she accidentally threw away my Acqua di Parma Murano glass candle among the wrapping paper. What really got me steamed up was that she dismissed it afterward as “a little accident”— and with no contrition whatsoever. Somehow, though, I seemed to be to the blame for ruining her big day. Even worse: We had it out in front of the entire birthday party at her parents’ place on Gin Lane. Where did I go wrong? Birthday Boy A Carriage House (address withheld) Southampton

A:

Dear Birthday Blues, Lord of the Manner’s Edict Number 674: Never engage in an argument on a loved one’s birthday. Hold thy tongue. At least for the day. Be like a Brit and keep that upper lip stiff (using the proverbial duct tape, if necessary). I am afraid that you are holding, as we say in cards, a weak hand. Or a life of solitaire thereafter. Regardless of whether you were in the right, you’re wrong. You

can’t win. It is her day. And you ruined it by imploding—no matter how insensitive her behavior. Tomorrow is another day. One does not advocate “Cold War” silences between couples rather than airing each other’s grievances. But timing and tone are essential. When it comes to verbal fisticuffs on a beloved’s festive day, the birthday girl (or boy) scores a first round punch simply by virtue of the day in question. Consider yourself in a hostage situation. Maintain all calm. Think long term. Bickering on birthdays—or holidays such as Christmas, for that matter—can haunt you forever, embedded in his and her unconsciousness. The memory, regardless of how major or minor the fracas, will raise its horrid head, even if unspoken, like some latent muscle spasm, for many a birthday or Christmas to come. And may well tarnish the celebratory goodwill you feel for one another on all those red letter days you’ll commemorate together ’til death do you part. Lest we forget, there is no such thing as a good audience to jousting by shouting. A couple crossing swords before friends in a Southampton sitting room, even if merely the aside snide, is no different than some anonymous twosome going at it on a city street with such vehemence that you can’t bear to watch, let alone listen. In the Hamptons, there is no such thing as anonymous. What couples do behind closed doors is their business. Keep it your business and keep the door shut. As we all know, the oceans are wide and the sun is golden, but life in the Hamptons is a small world after all. What happens in the Hamptons, doesn’t stay in the Hamptons. ✦

If you collect items that you’re passionate about – whether it’s wine, cars, jewelry, or even autographed sports memorabilia – you may be wondering about the actual worth of your collection. Not to mention how it fits into your overall plan for financial security. And, what do you do with your collection when keeping it is no longer feasible? While certainly a difficult decision, the old adage “you can’t take it with you” holds significant truth. Financial considerations. It’s natural to get attached to items in your collection, making it difficult to sell them when they become overvalued. It’s also common for collectors to become so enthusiastic about a new piece that they’re willing to overpay for it. That’s part of collecting, and the emotional appeal may be the reason why you began in the first place. Collectibles don’t produce income, and they’re different from marketable securities in that it can take longer and cost more to sell them. So they’re not an ideal investment for funding a retirement. It’s important to recognize that collecting is different from other types of investing,

and that decisions aren’t always based on typical investment criteria.

its floors. He transformed the stable into a studio, outfitting its second story with a skylight and a north-facing window. On the stable’s eastern wall, facing the back of the house, were hayloft doors that he liked to fling open, admitting the famous knife-blade East End light and swatches of scenery that often appeared in the background of portraits he painted there. Oftentimes, he painted the tree-house view of Southampton he saw from that hayloft. “You may ask how interesting it is to paint that same little house over and over again,” said Alicia G. Longwell, the Lewis B. and Dorothy Cullman chief curator of the Parrish Art Museum in nearby Water Mill. “But like most modern artists he was looking at what you could do with color and line rather than the subject matter itself.” Although Porter’s family often posed for him, the house and studio many times come across as vivid central characters in his South Main Street interiors, no less than the people who inhabited those interiors. As critic Lawrence Campbell wrote in Art News, “the children are never alone because the furniture lives too.” The stove in one painting, for example, “is not displeased at being cast in the role of prima-donna.” 70 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2016

More than once, Porter painted his son Laurence playing a 1918 Steinway upright piano in the front hall, lavishing as much or more attention on the house—the beautifully rendered wallpaper and the sidelights of the front door—than on the boy, with whom he had a distant relationship. “Families are

complex, but who else are you going to press into posing?” said Dr. Longwell while giving a visitor a tour of undisplayed Porter paintings in the “vault” of the Parrish museum. For his part, Laurence enjoyed posing, an activity that served as father-son time in the Porter household in the same way that tossing a baseball might in another family. “I was always happy to sit for paintings, because it was a way of helping my father and being with him,” he told Justin Spring for the insightful biography Fairfield Porter: A Life in Art. Katharine, fourth of the Porters’ five children, was born shortly before the family moved to Southampton from Manhattan, and for a while she was the painter’s favorite model. When the poet Frank O’Hara, a friend, observed Porter at work for a 1955 profile he published in Art News, it was five-year-old Katie whom the artist chose to paint, sitting in an armchair by the living-room fireplace. According to John T. Spike’s Fairfield Porter: An American Classic, the artist even “paid” his little girl. For each hour she posed, she was “duly remunerated with a metal washer, which she delightedly called a ‘washer-woman.’” The real washer-woman, however, was

In New York art circles, 49 South Main Street came to be waggishly known as Porter’s Rest Home for Broken-Down New Yorkers.

Anne, a self-described “terrible housekeeper” who put her own work as a poet on the back burner to raise the couple’s children and do her best to keep the home functioning. Although Porter sometimes grumbled about the house’s disarray, it suited his aesthetic as a painter. “He would famously tell his wife not to clean up the table after breakfast so he could paint it as it was,” said Dr. Longwell. “He felt anything could make a painting: spilled cereal, a milk pitcher. It’s not a glorification of domesticity or ‘Home Sweet Home.’ It’s just that he takes the ordinary and presents it in a way that’s extraordinary: that table, from that morning, on that day. There’s a real sense of temporality.” The home’s generous proportions and equally generous hosts also conspired to create a chaotic if creative environment. It was “a sort of nonstop house party,” the art critic Peter Schjeldahl has said, in which the “upper-class bohemian” Porter entertained his “impoverished, wacky friends.” Visitors included a rotating cast of fellow painters and young poets from the New York School like O’Hara and two future Pulitzer Prize winners, James Schuyler and John Ashbery, both of whom Porter painted. Schuyler, an unstable fellow, came by for a visit and stayed 11 years. In New York art circles, 49 South Main Street came to be waggishly known as Porter’s Rest Home for Broken-Down New Yorkers. When the painter Larry Rivers slit his wrists in an unsuccessful suicide attempt, Porter brought him to his Southampton house. There, according to Spring’s biography, Rivers spent a couple of weeks reading Marcel Proust’s Swann’s Way and Porter painted a frank portrait of him with his wrists bandaged. Other artist friends painted by Porter included Jane Freilicher, Elaine de Kooning and Jane Wilson. In 1980, five years after Porter died of a heart attack at the age of 68 while walking his dog in Southampton, Anne sold the house and moved into a smaller one she’d had built on the property. As executor of the artist’s estate, Anne donated more than 200 of her husband’s artworks, mostly paintings, to the Parrish Art Museum, then in Southampton. The trove is the world’s largest collection of Porter’s work. Porter’s artistic legacy ended up contributing to the Parrish in a less conventional way as well. In 2005, when the Swiss architecture firm of Herzog & de Meuron was developing design ideas for the new Parrish site in Water Mill, its architects visited the converted stable where Porter had painted, along with the studios of artists William Merritt Chase, Roy Lichtenstein and Chuck Close, who worked in a converted barn in Sagaponack. The final design of the striking new museum, which opened in 2012, grew out of those visits. Taking as its starting point the form of these East End artists’ studios, the architects created a long, barnlike structure with a double-peaked roof and soaring interior spaces. Two paintings of the Porters’ Southampton living room, one by Porter himself and the other by Robert Dash, are on view there through October 30 as part of an exhibition called “Home Sweet Home.” While Porter may have maintained that the East End was not particularly important to his art, his art has certainly become important to the East End. ✦ John Freeman Gill’s first novel, The Gargoyle Hunters, will be published by Alfred A.

RANGEY’S AMERICAN CONNECTION

ange Rover. The iconic, super premium SUV that is instantly recognizable anywhere in the world is in many people’s eyes quintessentially British. Launched in 1970 (and since then the choice of well-heeled farmers, aristocrats, and captains of industry), it is without a doubt the king of the 4x4s. However, dig a little deeper and you will find that many of its early influences were actually American. So without Uncle Sam the world may well have been without the mighty “Rangey.” The Range Rover has its roots at the end of the Second World War in the original Land Rover, an off-road vehicle inspired by the amazingly successful Willys Jeep that kept the American Army moving around Europe and the Far East during the conflict. The Land Rover was utilitarian in the extreme, and it became clear by the late 1950s that customers wanted something that had supreme off-road capability but was also good to drive on the road. However, apart from a couple of concept vehicles, nothing was done until it became clear from America, where vehicles such as the Ford Bronco and Jeep Wagoneer were thriving, that the sports utility vehicle (SUV) was going to prove very popular. So exasperated was the president of Rover’s USA operations by the lack of suitable vehicles from Britain to compete with this new crop of SUVs that he fitted a Series II Land Rover with a Buick V8 engine and sent it back to Rover in England. The levels of refinement over anything offered by Land Rover

were enough for management to give the green light and, in 1967, under the guidance of Charles Spencer King, the Range Rover project was born and delivered in 1970 as a two-door off-roader with excellent on-road capabilities. The engineering department rather than the design department were responsible for the famous two-door shape, which was fittingly later exhibited in the Louvre in Paris as an “exemplary work of industrial design.” Without a doubt the rarest and coolest Range Rover of all time has to be the CSK, and it is in one of these that I am going to take a spin today. I must confess a tinge of nostalgia, for a CSK was the first car I owned after leaving high school. That first summer was spent driving all over Europe in it with friends, having an absolute blast and treating the world as our oyster. Only 200 were ever made (mine was 181, according to a very neat little plaque on the dash) and they all came in jet black with a tan interior, chrome fenders and huge driving lights. It looked fabulous then and it still does now, an amazing feat considering the design is nearly 50 years old. Having loaded the picnic hampers in the back I clamber on board and swing the impossibly long and heavy door closed. Everything is instantly familiar, and I literally feel 18 years old again—some special cars really do have that ability. The Buick-derived V8 motor fires up with a muted roar and settles to a very pleasing burble, and I’m off to the countryside with my wife to find our perfect picnic spot.

There is something magisterial about the driving position in this wonderful machine. You sit very high and can see everything thanks to the huge expanse of glass. Thanks also to the coil spring suspension, which means these cars can go further off road than most owners would ever dare take them, the ride on the road is very comfortable, and we blissfully waft along the lanes of Suffolk. However, I am forced to remind myself that they do roll around corners rather more than I recalled—cue a slightly panicked moment when I thought I wasn’t quite going to make it around one bend and caught a slightly surprised sideways glance from my darling wife. However, all was well, and in memory of the summer of ’97 I have the windows down and radio up with Van Morrison’s “Days Like This” just topping off my trip down memory lane. As we arrive at our favorite picnic spot and deploy what is almost certainly one of the best features of the Range Rover for outdoor dining (the folding-down tailgate) I reflect that there is simply no other 4x4I can think of that offers such a blend of old-school charm, go-anywhere style and downright cool. In the original Range Rover Charles Spencer King created a legend that lives on. Or as I read the other day “If you can afford to have one as your second car, you simply can’t afford not to have one.” ✦

nce the right brain is on, you can’t turn it off,” says financier Charlie de Viel Castel, who is now also the founder and creator of CVC Stones, a jewelry line that pays homage to his grandmother. Initially choosing a career in banking, Viel Castel has both business and art in his blood. Raised in Paris, he graduated from Brown with a double degree in economics and international relations. Viel Castel then went on to work in finance with Goldman Sachs and Deutsche Bank, before founding private equity and venture capital firm Stelac Capital in 2007. His mother, Isabel Carcano, was born in Argentina but raised in France. She hails from an entrepreneurial family that owned businesses ranging from breweries to real estate. On his father’s side he descends from Horace de Viel-Castel, an intimate of Princess Mathilde Bonaparte, who served as director of the Louvre. Ultimately, it was Amicie de L’Epine, his paternal grandmother, who inspired him to pursue his endeavor in jewelry, CVC Stones. “She knew what really mattered. She encouraged me to be creative, try new things and not be afraid to make big changes, like leaving Paris for America and starting my financial firm,” Viel Castel says. Upon passing away, she left him a loose diamond. “It felt like a message she was passing from the beyond, inviting me to make another big change,” he says. With no wife or fiancée to give the diamond to, he began pondering the possibilities. His impulse was to combine something organic with something precious. He found that inspiration while walking on the beach in the Hamptons one day: the diamond should be set in a beach pebble. Viel Castel threw himself enthusiastically into finding the materials and technique to bring his vision for his grandmother’s diamond to life. “Between the idea and the finished product, I spent two long years with a lot of uncertainty as to whether this could be done,” he reflects. The process involved finding the perfect stones and chains and a method for setting the diamonds securely without breaking the pebbles in the process to finally satisfy the idea. To truly appreciate Viel Castel’s eye, scroll through the CVC Stones Instagram page. There, you will find the stones worn by A-listers like Bee Shaffer and Jessica Hart, as well as celebrities like Sienna Miller and Rebecca Hall. The artful aesthetic is carried throughout each post, as photos of the jewelry are juxtaposed with graceful pictures of nature and architecture, clearly an inspiration for Viel Castel’s discerning eye. During this journey into entrepreneurship, childhood friend Eugenie Niarchos became someone to whom Viel Castel could turn for advice and guidance, offering support based on her decade of experience in the jewelry business and the successful 2013 launch of her Venyx line, a quirky collection of playful fine jewelry inspired by a blend of nature and science fiction. Niarchos’ background also includes a stint studying at the Gemological Institute of America and experience with jewelry collaborations for Repossi and Azzaro. “I’ve long been a fan of Eugenie’s unique aesthetic and curious eye, from way before she debuted her Venyx collection, which I then welcomed with real joy, since it finally allowed me to shop in her quirky world,” says friend Margherita Missoni Amos. Niarchos sources stones based on their aesthetic value as opposed to perceived value, traveling to stone fairs around the world, including one in Tucson, Arizona, where many of the materials in the collaboration with CVC Stones come from. “I see stones in a different way. I see no distinction between precious and semiprecious stones,” Niarchos explains. “You can find a poor-quality ruby and an amazing quality agate, so how do you qualify precious and semiprecious at the end of the day?” Like Viel Castel, Niarchos’ impeccable penchant for beauty was honed by her family. Her paternal grandfather, billionaire shipping magnate Stavros Niarchos, developed a legendary collection of impressionist and modern art that she grew up surrounded by, having been inherited by her father, Philip. On her mother’s side, great-grandmother Gloria Guinness was one of Truman Capote’s so-called swans. She was a muse to photographers, and painters hailed her as one of the best-dressed women of her time. “I never got to meet her, but I’m very inspired by her taste, which was impeccable and original, blending her Mexican heritage with the latest styles. She would pull off a poncho or a couture piece in an equally understated way, and her home in Acapulco combined traditional Mexican furniture and artifacts with modern pieces and contemporary styling. Like Gloria, I enjoy mixing the obvious with the unexpected and the modern with the ancient to achieve fun, understated luxury.” Niarchos is a soft-spoken free spirit; Viel Castel is full of charisma and charm. But, they both have “European sophistication mixed with a youthful spirit,” says mutual friend Lauren Santo Domingo. And their differences have allowed them to work well together.

“Both of them have so much to say, and they’ve come together very harmoniously. It still speaks to CVC Stones and their design intent, but the addition of color really speaks to Eugenie’s aesthetic so I think that there’s a very nice marriage between the two in this collaboration,” says Victoria Traina, creative director of The Line, the exclusive seller of CVC Stones in the Hamptons. While their aesthetics are distinct, Viel Castel and Niarchos both root their designs in nature, making it easy to find common ground. “For me nature is the inspiration for everything—through its shapes, colors, patterns you can find so much. In this collaboration we’re using pebbles from the beach with stones you find in the earth. It’s two different types of nature uniting in a special way,” says Niarchos. “I also try to make jewelry with a story, and there’s a really beautiful one when you think deeply about these pebbles. They have traveled throughout the world, and now you’re wearing one around your neck.” The collaboration lands in stores this season, including the longtime summer destinations of each designer. “They’re shops by the sea,” Niarchos points out about the stores. “We’re bringing the stones back to where they’re from.” Niarchos will feature CVC Stones in her Venyx pop-up shop in Mykonos, and the collection will also be on offer at The Apartment by The Line’s Amagansett pop-up, which is close to Viel Castel’s Bridgehampton home. Viel Castel heads out east almost every weekend to pursue another passion, surfing. His house is currently five years into a renovation project, but Viel Castel is nothing if not a creative problem solver, and the house reflects his artistic nature. The property came with four preexisting structures—an artist’s studio, a garage and two small houses—but instead of knocking them down, he decided to leave them as they are, gut renovating each and connecting them with paths. “It’s a labor of love and patience…” Viel Castel says, laughing about the painfully long permit process. But, like the designs for CVC Stones, the renovation taps into a creative side that Viel Castel has just recently discovered he enjoys nurturing. “I always liked music and art,” he reminisces. “I don’t necessarily think I suppressed it. It just didn’t materialize until now.” ✦

With Niarchos’ guidance and depth of knowledge in the industry, Viel Castel’s passion project evolved into CVC Stones. He gave the first necklaces, test runs for his grandmother’s diamond, to the women in his family. He showed the remaining few to friends like Eugenie, one of whom took him to meet W magazine fashion market and accessories director Rickie De Sole, daughter of Tom Ford International chairman Domenico De Sole. The resulting article had a domino effect. “You put them on and people notice. People stop me on the street and ask me ‘What is that?’ There’s some magic in the designs that resonated. He’s only had the brand for a year, but suddenly you started seeing it on celebrities, editors and in stores in a very short period of time,” says de Sole. Santo Domingo took a chance on her friend’s line. Moda Operandi, which already carried Venyx, became the first retailer to pick up CVC Stones, followed by prestigious stores such as Barneys New York and Colette in Paris. “Personally, I like to mix business and pleasure whenever possible,” Santo Domingo says. “It helps to have very talented friends.” Niarchos’ mentorship has now evolved into a collaboration, in which she continues to nurture Viel Castel’s growth as a jewelry designer. “I’m very conscious of my limitations,” says Viel Castel, who still considers himself a novice despite the early success of his company. “For me one of the ideas behind the collaboration was to evolve, to see something new, and to learn from Eugenie’s use of color and her design eye.” Their collaboration brings together the CVC Stones technique for embedding diamonds in ocean-smoothed stones from the beach with Venyx’s signature use of color and passion for astrology. Each beach stone features a constellation associated with a zodiac sign, made out of colored gemstones reflective of that sign.

Discovering the Importance of Elephant Family by Helena

110 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2016

Gautier


step off the plane into the chaos and heat of India. We arrive in Guwahati, the largest city of Assam, a northeastern state of the country, and one of its most isolated. I am here with Lexi Bowes-Lyon, creative director for the Elephant Family in the United States, and Ruth Powys, cofounder of the Asian Elephant Alliance and CEO of Elephant Family, an NGO that protects the endangered Asian elephant. Our final destination is the Kaziranga National Park. The reason we all are here is because TRH, the Duke and Duchess of Cambridge, the royal patrons of the charity, are coming to Kaziranga National Park to visit the Mark Shand Asian Elephant Learning Center and to help paint the first two elephant sculptures that will launch the Elephant Parade in India. This event, organized by Elephant Family, will see 300 elephant sculptures adorn the streets of Delhi and Mumbai in 2017 and help raise awareness about the plight of Asia’s Elephants. Elephant Family is also organizing Elephant Parade Hamptons this summer, in partnership with Cadogan Tate. A collection of 50 elephant sculptures will be painted by artists such as Dave LaChapelle, Dustin Yellin and Ben Watts and displayed in various locations from Montauk to Southampton starting in July and culminating in a party and live auction of the sculptures on August 12, World Elephant Day. We arrive early in the morning, and due to a lapse of communication between London and India there is no car waiting for us at the airport. It is Election Day for the local government, and we are told later that due to possible unrest it is a bad day to arrive. The downside for us is that absolutely everything is closed. Because Assam is quite isolated, and mainly because it shares international borders with Bangladesh and Bhutan, cell service for international phones is unavailable. The airport is very small, and soon it is almost empty; the only people left are the drivers, loitering outside in the heat. We finally notice an old man in the far corner of the room behind a wooden desk with an ancient phone on it. It turns out that calls can be made from it in exchange for cash, and within an hour an official from the Wildlife Trust of India, a local partner of Elephant Family, is there to pick us up, and we set off on a five-hour journey to the Kaziranga National Park. The park is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. It provides one of the last wild habitats for the Asian elephant. The sanctuary also hosts two-thirds of the world’s great one-horned rhinoceroses and is home to the highest density of tigers among protected areas in the world. It is also a place of large breeding populations of elephants, wild water buffalo and swamp deer. Because of Election Day, the roads are packed with people. In every village crowds are lining up in front of small huts to cast their votes. I am surprised to notice that the majority are women, their pink and orange saris bright against an arid landscape.

E

ven knowing the statistics about overpopulation in this part of the world, I am still surprised by the density of the population. There is not a single break in space that is not taken by a house or a store. It goes on for hours. Nevertheless, the landscape is beautiful, lushly green and wild. Houses intermixed with working fields, narrow roads full of fast-moving trucks that weave between cows. Everything is moving at a chaotic speed, and yet with a seemingly perfectly rehearsed fluidity. This lack of space is one of the major problems facing the region, the human-wildlife conflict where a fight for space and habitat is part of the daily life. Leopard and tiger attacks are common, as well as elephants trampling villages due to a lack of space. Elephant Family has been creating elephant corridors and relocating whole villages away from the ancient paths of the elephants providing both people and animals safety in their surroundings. Earlier this year, Elephant Family helped to relocate a remote village of 19 families who were living in a crucial elephant corridor in the Kaziranga-Karbi Anglong landscape to a safer and better location. The Duke and Duchess of Cambridge are due to meet the local people who have been relocated and to hear their stories. Ruth Powys, TRH

Duke and Duchess

of Cambridge


ess has a soft voice and speaks to everyone around her, from the local artists to the kids to the officials surrounding her. She asks questions and listens attentively to the answers. The prince is at ease and curious. Together they move from one point in the small square to the next, looking at photos, talking to people and finally arriving to paint the elephant sculptures.

T Inside the park we stay at a quaint lodge. The royal couple is arriving the next morning and is staying at a lodge down the road. They will be taken on an elephant safari and to visit a veterinary clinic that rehabilitates baby elephants, before coming to meet the people of a successfully relocated village, see Mark Shand’s memorial obelisk and an Asian Elephant Learning Center, and paint the two elephant sculptures. The next morning we drive down a long, twisty road that goes through tea plantations and ends at the veterinary center connected to the sanctuary run by the Wildlife Trust of India. There are cows languishing in the middle of the little road, and the hum of birds and insects is in the air. The world media has gathered in the designated area under a makeshift podium made of bamboo sticks. It is a warm day, but because we are in the foothills of the Himalayas the air is cool and crisp. The duke and duchess make their way on foot from the sanctuary to the center, accompanied by Ruth, who tells them about the project and the work the charity has been doing in the region. The duch-

he princess paints a dainty flower on the trunk of her elephant, it is pink and green and has three petals, after this she hands the brush back and laughs. Prince William is about to give back his brush as well, but then goes back to painting his elephant. “I have to do a better one than her,” he jokes., stepping back to admire his work. The royal couple will spend their last night in Kaziranga at a lodge, having dinner with local officials while we return to ours. We are in the middle of dinner on the terrace when the fans and floor begin to shake. It goes on for a few seconds then stops, in a minute it happens again but with more intensity. Earthquake. Then all the lights go out and we are in the inky black of the Indian night. We are ordered to go downstairs and have to feel our way down. In a few minutes the lights are back on but no one is allowed to go back so instead they make a bonfire and set up tables among the trees and the dinner goes on as if nothing has happened. That night happens to be a celebration of the local New Year, so the men from the local villages go around the homes and sing traditional blessings. They come to us, and beating their drums they dance and sing, their faces illuminated by the light from the fire. Soon they move on to the next house and then to the next, going on all night. As we leave the next morning at dawn the royal couple are on their way to Bhutan. As the mountains and plains of Kaziranga fall behind giving way to villages and everyday noise I hope the natural beauty of this place can remain so forever. ✦ JULY 2016 • AVENUE ON THE BEACH | 113

or entrepreneur Chris Del Gatto and wife Veronica Webb Del Gatto, family is everything. Chris is the founder of DEL GATTO, a new jewelry-buying exchange. Veronica is a model who became the first African-American to land a major cosmetics contract when she signed with Revlon. The couple met through mutual friends years ago, “which is the best way,” adds Chris. “Very quickly, within a week, the kids told us that we should get married,” says Veronica of their now-blended family. “One of our kids said, ‘I think you should give her a diamond,’” recalls Chris. “I’m like, ‘Really? This is the first time you met.’ And he’s like, ‘I’ve been up to your office. They’re everywhere. You should just give her one of them.’” Chris has been in the precious stones industry for well over a decade, beginning with his former jewelry buying company Circa. The idea for DEL GATTO, which launched earlier this year, has been about seven years in the making. Back then, Chris connected with Josh and Mara Opperman, founders of IDoNowIDont.com, a jewelry exchange service that, true to its name, allowed people with broken engagements to recover lost expenses from their engagement rings. “We thought, what is the 2.0 version of jewelry buying?” says Chris. He discovered that, while many people value family heirlooms, too often the stones sit in safes for the majority of their lifetime. DEL GATTO changes the dynamics of the jewelry-buying industry by providing two distinct purchasing options—clients are able to ask for estimates, either in person or through text message, and then sell their jewels outright for immediate payment, or they can list a piece on online at IDoNowIDont.com, which now falls under DEL GATTO. Chris wanted to make people to think about jewelry just as they think about plastic water bottles. “I think ultimately, people will pay more for a diamond that they know is ‘green,’” says Chris. “A diamond can’t be destroyed, so every diamond that’s ever been mined is still in existence,” says Veronica. “For our kids, who are millennials, it’s like second nature for them to recycle…For us, with the advent of the internet, we’ve learned that smart people upcycle.” In the spirit of giving back, Chris is making philanthropy easy for his customers. On June 1, DEL GATTO launched its charitable division, whereby the company will collaborate with charities and give a percentage of all purchases back to participating organizations. The company will also be launching an Ultra division, which will focus on targeted personal outreach to the most significant fine jewelry and diamond owners in the world. Amidst the growth of the business, the two make time for their family. Together, they have four kids ranging in age from 11 to 16 years old. They’ve spent the past few summers on Fire Island, and will spend this summer in the Hamptons. “New York is beautiful. And Long Island is really beautiful. It’s amazing to have the freedom to explore all these different parts of it,” says Chris. There is no typical day at the beach for the family. Like most on the East End, they enjoy pool time and eating out at restaurants. Exercise is a major component of their routine, as is cooking together. And, they have “art breaks” for the kids. “We try to take the kids to a gallery or museum,” says Chris. Their parenting style is to lead by example. “If you contradict what you say, then you’ve lost all credibility, and kid are just so sharp,” says Chris. With their kids in mind, they circle back to how they wanted to make it easy for individuals to give back through DEL GATTO, including to kids’ schools. “You don’t have to be a huge corporation to enjoy charitable giving,” says Chris. “Selling watches and jewelry that you no longer wear is such an easy way to contribute.” When someone sells an item that comes to DEL GATTO through a charitable initiative, DEL GATTO writes a check equivalent to 5% of the purchase price in the seller’s name to the charity. The company will also take care of any additional amount the seller wants to donate. “That’s going to be a really fun part of this business, building the charitable aspect out,” finishes Veronica. ✦ JULY 2016 • AVENUE ON THE BEACH | 119

Everlasting DORIS

For decades, Shangri La has served as Doris Duke’s treasured Hawai‘ian retreat. Now, the beachside estate known as an inspiring center for Islamic arts and cultures, continues to astonish. by Wendy

t may take a little searching, but in the south shore of Oahu, Hawai‘i, along the crashing waves of the Pacific Ocean, is the historic home that belonged to Doris Duke, the late heiress, philanthropist and art collector. Named Shangri La, after a mythical hidden paradise in James Hilton’s 1933 novel, Lost Horizon, the 4.9-acre property is an idyllic haven that radiates charm and character. Today, Shangri La is a center for Islamic arts and cultures, welcoming visitors as well as artists and scholars in residence. It is owned and operated by the Doris Duke Foundation for Islamic Art (DDFIA), which is supported by the Doris Duke Charitable Foundation (DDCF), just as she wished for in her will. But the story really began 80 years ago, in April 1936, when a 23-year-old Duke and her first husband, American diplomat James Cromwell, 39, purchased land to build a home in Ka‘alāwai, Hawai‘i, after the couple had fallen deeply in love with the island during the last stop on their ten-month all-around-the-world honeymoon trip. As the only child of James Buchanan Duke, a tobacco and hydroelectric power tycoon and benefactor of Duke University, and his second wife, Nanaline Holt Inman, Doris Duke was certainly no stranger to wealth. Born in Manhattan, she grew up in a number of spectacular houses, including a French Neoclassical,

ut Duke didn’t want to be defined by her wealth. At six foot, one inch tall, she was a statuesque blond bombshell who was independent and witty, someone who craved adventure. Duke was a writer who contributed to Town & Country and Harper’s Bazaar. She was also an environmentalist, a musician and the first female competitive surfer. Her upbringing provided access to a life of luxury, but it isn’t clear where her interest in Islamic art came from—it was, however, apparent that she had a profound passion for it. During a visit to India on her honeymoon trip with Cromwell, Duke was captivated by the Taj Mahal, built under the patronage of the fifth Mughal emperor, Shah Jahan (c. 1631–47). There was something exceptional about the floral designs and precious stones, and it ignited her first commission, the Mughal Suite, 124 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2016

a marble bedroom and bathroom by C.G. and F.B. Blomfield, a British architectural firm based in New Delhi. Originally, it was planned to be shipped to the newlyweds’ wing in El Mirasol, the Palm Beach home of Duke’s mother-in-law, society doyenne Eva Stotesbury. But after the couple’s visit to Hawai‘i, they decided to return to the island four months later to build Shangri La, and they had the Mughal Suite transferred to their new home. “She was very hands-on every step of the way: where other people would just hire interior designers and go with it, she signed off on every final decision,” Carol Khewhok, program manager at Shangri La, DDFIA, tells me during a tour of the estate. “What you find in the house is very much a reflection of her aesthetic sense and vision.” Duke hired architect Marion Sims Wyeth, working closely with him in designing the space from the ground up.

three-story, 54-room mansion on the Upper East Side’s “Millionaire’s Row.” Her family owned residences in Somerville, New Jersey, and Newport, Rhode Island. Duke loved to travel even from her early childhood. When her father died, she was left as the main heir of his fortune at the age of 12, rising to media fame as “the world’s richest girl.”

Looking at it now, it’s not difficult to see why the location was such an ideal spot to build a home. The land, purchased for $100,000, is situated on the east side of Diamond Head, offering breathtaking panoramic views and clear sightings of the island’s frequent rainbows. If heaven is a place on earth, this is it. The setting is hidden enough that you’ll spot it from afar if you looked very closely, but for the most part, it offers a discreet privacy that Duke was longing for. “She visited every year and spent several months. What we understand is, Shangri La was her baby and she loved it more than any of her other houses,” says Khewhok. “Even though she didn’t leave any personal diaries, she left very personal archives. Every bill, every receipt, everything related to the building was filed away very meticulously. We have quite a bit of material on her, and certainly on the refurbishing of the building.” Speaking of her personal life, Duke ended her marriage to Cromwell after 13 years. She also briefly wed to Dominican diplomat and international playboy Porfirio Rubirosa in 1947, whom she also divorced less than one year later.

o keep the house as close to its original state as possible and to preserve the delicate art inside, no air conditioners are installed. The air feels balmy; fortunately, the heat is not unbearable due to Hawai‘i’s breezy trade winds passing through the windows and doors. Paper jacquard-printed paddle fans are given to visitors upon entrance, courtesy of the Honolulu Museum of Art, which works in partnership with the DDFIA to provide guided small group tours and educational programs at Shangri La. “Before opening this property as a house museum in 2002, we had to arrange research on all the collections in here,” says Khewhok, who explains that Duke’s namesake foundation took five years to form after her death in 1993. “We brought in curators and experts to find out what we had, in addition to what the significance and value is. There were a lot of moving parts.” Each and every room is filled with distinct pieces that Duke collected over the course of nearly 60 years, sourced from Spain, Morocco, Egypt, Syria, Iran, Central Asia, India and parts of Southeast Asia, among other places. Duke was open-minded and never one to follow the rules; she mixed and matched works from different styles and eras. Among some of those works include a handcrafted 11-foot wide, 20-foot tall colorful tile mosaic at the center of the Central Courtyard, commissioned from a workshop in Isfahan, Iran, in 1938. The labor that went into the making of the piece is

At the main entrance of Shangri La is a pair of wooden doors from Egypt, circa 1900 from the Mamluk Revival period. Three elements of Islamic art are present within the doors, with Arabic calligraphy mostly drawn from the Qur’an. The top panel conveys, “Enter them in health, secure. God the magnificent has spoken the truth.”

truly extraordinary—batches of stone paste tiles were glazed in shades of blues, greens, yellows, reds and just about every color imaginable, and fired at different temperatures to enhance luster, then broken up into 17,000 pieces before being bonded back together again to create the final masterpiece. Duke’s living room includes a collection of Spanish luster ceramics and tilework displayed on its walls, nearly all of which were purchased from William Randolph Hearst’s private collection in 1941. There are 12-by-20-foot floor-to-ceiling windows that open with a touch of the button—a technological feature that’s surprisingly ahead of its time—and offers a direct view of the Playhouse, a poolside pavilion with 14 poppy red columns, inspired by the design of the seventeenth-century palace, Chihil Sutun in Isfahan, Iran. The space was used as a guesthouse and included its own living room, small kitchen and two bedroom suites. Entering the Syrian Room feels like being transported to a different world. In the late 1970s and early 1980s, Duke organized a major renovation to create this space, which was once a billiard room,

bathroom and office. Inspired by the late Ottoman period in Syria (which spanned from 1516 to 1918), she sourced historic elements from NYU’s Hagop Kevorkian Center for Near Eastern Studies, combined with new pieces made in Hawai‘i by local craftsmen. In a smaller room next door, includes a pair of vertical panels with fruit and floral designs, which were once housed in the Damascus Room of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. The very last project that Duke worked on at Shangri La before her death at the age of 80 was replacing a tile on the wall in the hallway connecting the living and dining rooms. When none of the pieces she had in storage seemed like the right fit, her plans were to bring back the perfect one after she returned from her next trip (wherever that might have been), but never did, as she fell ill. To this day, there is visibly a missing tile on the wall, and just like her life—which for the most part was private—a sense of mystery and allure still lives on. ✦

High Season Just How Hot is Hamptons Real Estate? The Experts Weigh In

moderated by Adam

146 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2016

Miller

photographed by Daniel

Rodriguez


AVENUE: What has changed in the real estate business over the past number of years? GIFKINS: North of the Highway has become quite important, where it wasn’t 20 years ago, or even 15 years ago. People are paying much more money for houses north of the highway—both inland and on the water. I think what we see now is that it’s nice to have the beach here, but not everyone needs that. The Hamptons isn’t about the beach for everyone. So clients are willing to go to Deerfield Road [in Water Mill] and Lumber Lane [in Bridgehampton] and even further north of that, like into Sag Harbor or North Haven. Those areas have become very hot. They’re not beachcentric, but they are water-accessible. DEPERSIA: There’s a certain charm and feeling to Sag Harbor that the other villages don’t have, a feeling of being taken back in time. A number of my clients love that feel, as do I, since I live here. BREITENBACH: The market is totally different because of the internet, and people can really do research themselves first. I agree that Sag Harbor has in the last few years become very popular, with a happening town, and it is also centered on the water. There is boating and the kids are clamming and crabbing; kayaking and paddling has now become very popular too. AVENUE: I come from a commercial background. I’m curious. Do you think that the continued rise of prices for storefronts in the central business districts can be sustained, especially with the vacancies that we’re seeing in some East End downtowns? DEPERSIA: Just like in other resort areas, restaurants come and go in the Hamptons. [The vacancies] are a temporary type of thing. People try it out, and if they don’t do well they move on. It works that way for stores, and it works that way for restaurants. But people seem to keep coming in and trying it, and we see that all the time. GIFKINS: I also think if you look at Sag Harbor, for example, where the rents are lower, the downtown is constantly busy. AVENUE: Do customers come focused on a town, or do they just say my budget is X? NOBBS: Typically they want to be where their friends are.

MARCIA: If they have friends in Remsenberg that’s where they want to be. If they have friends in Amagansett, that’s where they want to be. BREITENBACH: Each town is unique and has something special to offer. Bridgehampton, Sagaponack and Wainscott are still a bit rural, with horse farms, vineyards, even dairy farms that make their own cheese and apple orchards where you can pick your own apples, while Southampton and East Hampton are lovely, with more mature trees and hedged estates. People are also going north of the highway, where they can get more acreage for less money, but many want to make sure they aren’t too far away from where they visit regularly. I have had quite a few women ask, “How far away is it from Soul Cycle?”!

THOMAS: I had that. AVENUE: What’s the demographic of the people you’re seeing, and is that changing? NOBBS: I have younger customers who are in their 30s, a lot of hedge fund and Wall Street people. Many of them want Bridgehampton and Sagaponack. They don’t want Southampton.

CAROL NOBBS, Licensed Real Estate Broker at Douglas Elliman

GEOFF GIFKINS, THOMAS: They want to be sort of in the middle, because it’s easy access. They’re south of the highway. They can get to Sag Harbor. They can get to East Hampton. They can get to Southampton. AVENUE: How about the demographics of the people you’ve been seeing over the last year or two. Is that changing? DEPERSIA: It’s still a lot of the same people. You have two different types of buyers. You have the buyer who’s spent a lot of time in the Hamptons. Their parents had a house there, they’ve guested here or they’ve rented here. And they sort of know where they want to be, even though you can move someone from north to south or south to north. It’s a matter of them finding a house. The second type of buyer is someone who is new to the area and know they want to be out here. They’ve just moved to New York City, and they want to be in the Hamptons. Not only do they have to find a house they like, they have to find an area they like. So for that buyer, it’s not just about the house, but it’s also about discovering where they want to be in the Hamptons. As far as the demographics are concerned, we still have young buyers. Buyers in their 20s

with other agents. They’ll make sure the seller is happy, the buyer is happy and it all connects together. I think that’s something a lot of other brokers lose sight of.

AVENUE: People love modern barns these days. And Gary?

AVENUE: That’s a great point. I sit in the middle on a lot of these, and you can see the brokers who work collaboratively. They realize that they might have to give something to get something. And it’s all about deal making at the end of the day. BREITENBACH: It’s not about your ego. A lot of it comes down to trust. People always say, how do you keep all these amazing people as clients? Of course, it is a given that you need to be the most knowledgeable about your market, but I think it really comes down to trust and being straight up and honest with them, and if it’s not the right property for whatever reason, you have to let them know.

John Scott Thomas

Susan Breitenbach

NOBBS: I have a listing on Lumber Lane that’s really fabulous. It’s a one-acre, and it’s beautifully landscaped, great pool, great house. I think it will sell soon. I think the weather was kind of bad this winter, so people didn’t come out as much. And I think now that the weather is breaking, they’ll come out and that price point will sell. That price point is selling. MARCIA: I have a new property coming out around the Fourth of July. It’s a house in Quogue that’s one of its first real ultramoderns, on a canal with dreamy water views. That modern look that’s east of the canal would go for $20 million, but in Quogue it’s going to be $6 million or $7 million. This is a very exciting project. THOMAS: My property is in Montauk, overlooking Four Pond Bay on a cliff. You can watch the beach, and you just face water. It’s kind of postmodern-esque. It’s very Hamptons, with cedar shakes.

If I don’t think something is right, I’ll tell them, they respect that and appreciate it. It’s not always about the money and making the deal, it is about the relationship. THOMAS: You have to be honest and really gain their trust and their comfort. MARCIA: Also many agents who aren’t that successful get too personally involved with the buyers and the sellers. You have to concentrate on the deal. Be cordial and professional. It isn’t necessary to have a “romance” with a client, figuratively or literally, while you’re doing a deal for them. AVENUE: What’s one listing that you’re excited about?

NOBBS: I have a Jay Bialsky modern on Fowler Lane for $33 million. It’s a masterpiece. It is surreal. It is magnificent. It’s in the process of being built. He already built two others, one on Parsonage Lane and one on Quimby Lane. They’re spectacular, but this one on Fowler has ocean views. It’s pondfront. It’s 2.8 acres. It will sell. AVENUE: Very special property. NOBBS: Very special. Very modern. Very surreal. BREITENBACH: Right next to my exclusive on Jule Pond, which is also incredible! NOBBS: Yes.

150 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2016

DEPERSIA: I have a house that’s just been reduced a million and a half. It’s on Ocean Road. It’s on 2.6 acres. It’s spectacular. It’s 9,000 square feet—it should have been gone already—and it will be now, I think. It’s been reduced to just under $17 million. Pool, tennis, finished lower level, seven bedrooms, outside kitchen, pool house. It really is a great house. And I think now where it’s priced it’s going to go. It’s a great opportunity for someone who wants a sizable house in a great location. BREITENBACH: I am exclusively marketing five amazing oceanfronts and a stunning Sagg Pond front on 40 acres right now, plus quite a few other unique properties. The first that comes to mind is an incredible 10,000-squarefoot modern oceanfront designed by Bates and Masi in Sagaponack, with 300 feet of frontage, tennis, and a roof deck with sliding glass walls throughout that open to both ocean and pond. One of the best oceanfront homes I have ever seen! I also have a really sensational new modern construction on 3 acres with ocean views and waterfront on Jule Pond being built by Breitenbach Builders and designed by Blaze Makoid that is super-cool and so absolutely different than anything out there! AVENUE: I hope you all sell them, and all send them my way. BREITENBACH: We will! ✦

rokers are licensed professionals and serve in a fiduciary capacity in relation to their clients. An exclusive listing firm and all of its brokers represent the seller. If the exclusive listing agent or any other agent in that firm procures the purchaser, with the buyer’s and seller’s permission, then the exclusive firm will serve as a dual agent or a dual agent with designated agents representing the buyer and seller. In New York City, brokers generally represent the buyer when showing the exclusives of other firms. New York State law requires that disclosure of these agency relationships be in writing and signed by the seller and the buyer of single-family homes, cooperatives and condominiums. Written disclosure is also required in all situations when the exclusive firm is acting as a dual agent. Having a full, complete understanding of agency relationships will help make working with brokers clearer. Brown Harris Stevens has represented sellers and buyers through generations of New Yorkers, and our philosophy is to establish productive, long term and client-focused agency relationships. ✦

Custom Interiors of Timeless Quality AVENUE talks to Gleb Belyaev, owner of Mo..ow Design and designer for TurriNYC, on the European approach to design, how to ensure lasting quality in high-end furniture, and more…

G

What are the advantages of using millwork for the decoration of living spaces? Millwork wood decoration is probably the most reliable form of decoration for walls and ceilings, more so than paint or wallpaper. It has natural, unexpected patterns of grain and rich color (created by the light reflected from behind the lacquering) that lasts forever. Unlike with gypsum plaster trimmings and moldings, the wood millwork design can be mirrored in the furniture design, and vice versa—the veneer pattern and curves from furniture can also be applied to wood panels.

leb Belyaev is a Russian-born interior designer and architect whose world-class style ranges from classical elegance to contemporary expressions. From his new Mo..ow Design studio in Manhattan (whose name comes from “Moscow” without the “s” and “c”), he also works with European companies like Turri furniture and German interior building specialists to create custom heirloom pieces and fine cabinetry, wall paneling, ceilings, moldings and flooring.

What do you believe is the European approach to design? In Europe, we put a lot of emphasis on the quality of the interior structure—surfaces are level and balanced, and angles are precise and symmetrical. With cabinetry and decorative woodwork, we try to ensure that woods are from the same forest reserve and even the same tree for uniformity as the woods age. This sets the perfect canvas.

Gleb Belyaev

While tastes may range from the most modern to classical, there’s always an emphasis on quality— particularly with furniture and pieces that stand the test of time and can be passed down through a family.

NIKA BELYAEVA

What is your background in interior and furniture design? I have a degree from a top Russian design academy and have worked on everything from contemporary and art deco–style apartments to seaside villas and European places in Italy, Spain, Russia and Dubai— designing the entire interiors and many of the furnishings.

What is special about the custom Turri furniture that you sell in your NYC studio? Turri is synonymous with luxury furniture in Italy and Europe. Whether modern or classical, the furniture has a unique vision and is made to client specifications, with remarkable attention to detail and handcrafting. For example, the marquetry on some of the pieces I custom-designed is incredible, with 24 different patterns all done by hand. Some designs look antique, but with velvet-lined drawers on gliders and other enhancements, they’re highly functional. They possess a quality that is beautiful and timeless. What are you most excited about working in America? Everyone is so open and welcoming in America. It is truly the land of the individual. ✦

Here Comes the Sun AVENUE speaks with Dr. Lance Brown, cosmetic dermatologist and skin cancer surgeon, about Hampton Sun® and the golden rules of summer skin care

Lance H. Brown, M.D. has offices in New York City and East Hampton and is a Clinical Assistant Professor at the NYU Department of Dermatology

What do you tell your patients to look for in a sunscreen? I advise patients to use a broad spectrum UVA/UVB sunscreen of SPF 30 or greater whenever spending time outdoors, regardless of the season. I also recommend that they find a product that is easy to apply and feels good on their skin so that the healthy habit becomes second nature. What are the dangers of sunbathing without proper protection? First, a little reminder that you do not have to be sunbathing to receive a damaging dose of the sun’s rays. Up to 40 percent of UV rays reach the earth on a cloudy day. The immediate danger of not using sunscreen is a sunburn. Under the microscope, the cells and blood vessels of sunburned skin are visibly damaged. With repeated sun damage, the skin starts to look dry, wrinkled, discolored, and leathery. However, the sun’s most serious threat is that it is the major cause of skin cancer, which is now the most common of all cancers. What specifically about Hampton Sun® made you align yourself with the brand? I was introduced to Salvatore Piazzolla, the owner of Hampton Sun®, who impressed me with his commitment, welcoming down-to-earth personality and passion for his product. Hampton Sun® includes several technical advancements attributed to Polycrylene®, a unique and novel ingredient that helps enhance SPF strength and improve water-resistance, while meeting the current FDA sunscreen requirement. As a dermatologic surgeon, I counsel patients daily on the medical and antiaging benefits associated with protecting one’s skin from the sun. What are some sun-care tips you give your patients? When spending extended amounts of time outside, sunscreen should be applied liberally to all exposed skin. Approximately one ounce of sunscreen is required for the average adult in a bathing suit. Ideally, sunscreen should be applied every two hours and more often if skin gets wet from swimming or perspiration. And get in the habit of wearing a hat, using an umbrella and finding some shade. 156 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2016

Do you have a personal favorite product from Hampton Sun®? My favorite products from the brand include the SPF55 Continuous Mist for myself because it does not feel heavy and thick on a hot day. The SPF70 Continuous Mist for Kids, as well as the other children’s products, are great too because they are not sticky and work well, and my kids like them. I also recommend the Sunless Tanless Mist to those who desire the natural appearance of a tan without prolonged sun exposure. Like all of their products, it lasts a long time and is easy to apply. hamptonsuncare.com ✦

From Coast to Coast

A moment with Dr. Harrison Lee, New York and Beverly Hills based plastic surgeon

W

ith nearly 18 years of medical and surgical training, Dr. Harrison Lee knows the features of the human face like the back of his hand. Celebrated for his highly specialized procedures on stars such as Caitlyn Jenner and Dina Lohan, Dr. Lee is a tripleboard-certified plastic surgeon who tailors care to each patient’s specific needs. Because of bicoastal and worldwide patient demand for his services, he works between two offices in New York and Beverly Hills. In fact, a recent visit to the New York location led to a meeting with Lohan, who just had her first follow-up for upper blepharoplasty (eyelid surgery) and will be coming back next month for treatment on her lower eyelid. “Dr. Harrison Lee made me feel so safe. The results of the procedure look really subtle and not overdone,” she said. “That’s the beauty of what he does.” Born in Korea to physician parents, Dr. Lee moved to New York at the age of 5 and grew up on the East Coast. Career-wise, he started out studying dental care, moving on to a specialty in oral and maxillofacial surgery where he learned the principles of various facial bone reconstruction and taught at NYU’s College of Dentistry. Following that, he enrolled at New York Medical College, earning his M.D. at Mount Sinai, where he trained in Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery. In 1997 he moved to Beverly Hills to complete his facial plastic surgery training, leading to the establishment of his full-time practice in Beverly Hills. “I developed my niche slowly. Not a lot of plastic surgeons are trained to do jaw surgery or facial bone surgery, so I started to get requests to do those procedures. That’s how I got into transgender surgery,” Dr. Lee said. 160 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2016

In addition to some of the more conventional plastic procedures such as facelifts, he offers a number of very specialized services to patients from all over the world. The current trend, according to Dr. Lee, is Facial Feminization Surgery (FFS), which consists of procedures such as forehead reduction, rhinoplasty, cheek enhancement, lip augmentation, and Adam’s apple reduction. “These procedures don’t only apply to male or female transgender patients, but also to many women or men who want to enhance their features,” he said. It was about three years ago that Dr. Lee established his East Coast practice, and since then he has been splitting his time between the two offices. As every true New Yorker would say, “Every time I come back, it feels like home.” ✦

Confessions of a New York

Plastic Surgeon Demystifying the Trade

Part 1: Body contouring without surgery As told to AVENUE by David P. Rapaport, M.D. FACS

U

ntil 2010, you only had liposuction as a means of removing fatty cells. Then along came a company called Zeltiq who devised a CoolSculpting device that answered the question: how can I change my shape with no surgery or downtime? I was there at the beginning and now there have been 3 million treatments in the United States and my practice has conducted by far the most in the New York area. The basic principle is easy – we can freeze your fat cells in certain accessible areas – notably tummy, love handles and thighs. The science came out of Harvard research noting kids eating ice popsicles developed dimples (cheek fat was being frozen dead). And, rather interestingly, CoolSculpting’s the choice of men, not just women. A word about fat cells: they’re distributed around your body based primarily on your genetics and the fat stays in the same place all of your life. If you kill a fatty cell, it’s killed. And if it’s removed, then it never comes back. That said, if you go for body contouring and you indulge in bad eating habits, you’re fooling yourself. I can improve a client’s fatty proportions, but I can’t improve their weight! I’ve always found the general attitude towards liposuction a little unkind and consider it an underappreciated procedure. There is no question that lipo’s improvements far outpace those of CoolSculpting. But the prejudice against surgery, including ridiculous press about fatal complications, as well as ill-founded views that the fat removed will come back to strange areas of a client’s body, means that CoolSculpting’s a fine way of bypassing their prejudices. Yes, there is no penetration of the skin; no anesthesia; no scars to explain; no problems for clients with stents or other medical devices. You’ll see the results of CoolSculpting within four to six weeks. FDA surveys show that twenty percent of your fat cells in those areas treated will be removed. If you like the treatment, you can continue for another round, although further treatments will have less impact that your first, of course. Costs typically run between $2,400-$3,600 per round depending on how many applicators are used. The first generation of devices took about an hour per treatment. The newest models from Zeltiq can now do the same work in just over half the time and are shaped to be more efficient in their work. Here’s my word of caution. Zeltiq sells their models to those who can afford to buy them. That means medical spas and aestheticians can perform treatments even though they have no medical training and are most often commission driven in their recommendations. I know this sounds self-serving but you really want a board certified plastic surgeon overseeing all of your plastic surgery needs – and one with as much experience as possible. You need someone who understands the three dimensional aspects of fat, the artistic dimension of the human form and the unique difference between the female and male anatomies. And to give you the full range of options available to you and your particular needs. The small print on CoolSculpting, that I make absolutely sure my patients know: for one in 4,000 people, the treatment actually leads to fat growing (“paradoxical hyperplasia”); for one in a hundred clients, there is significant discomfort for two weeks before it recedes completely (don’t book a holiday the week after CoolSculpting, please). The next frontiers of non-invasive body sculpting? There is a brand new product from Cynosure called SculpSure which uses a combination of lasers and cooling – fire and ice, if you will – which shows promise especially in areas like the back of the waist where CoolSculpting cannot grip well. But most intriguing is a new technology called Cellfina from Merz. Cellfina is the first technology which actually gives excellent and lasting results. In clinical studies, improvement has been shown to endure for at least 2 years! With this minimally invasive treatment, which can be performed under local or twilight anesthesia, dimples are held under tension, numbing the area, with precise cutting of the fibers holding the dimples down. It’s a one hour procedure with local anaesthetic and shows incredible promise and results. It costs around $6,000 a treatment. But call my office, and I’ll tell you more. ✦

Haute Resort Living A sophisticated home awaits at the Residences at Gurney’s.

B

reathtaking views. Ocean air. Unrivaled amenities. This is just the beginning of life at the Residences at Gurney’s, the long-awaited resort residences in the Hamptons, tucked on the most desirable 1,000-foot stretch of pristine, private beach. “This is the most relaxed form of Hamptons living,” says Ryan Serhant, an agent with Nest Seekers International, of his new listing, the condos at Gurney’s Montauk in the Hamptons. “You don’t have to worry about the landscaper overcharging you, or the pool guy not showing up. Everything is taken care of, from room service to your late-night beach bonfire with friends. And the ocean is a built-in noisemaker, so you will have no problem sleeping.” Gurney’s Residences are more than homes of the finest craftsmanship. The Residences epitomize harmony between design and the natural world. Behind the iconic Hamptons-style seaside cottage façades, the organic, modern interiors utilize light woods, cool marble slabs and a palette of airy whites and beach-inspired neutrals. Imagine waking up, waves breaking at your doorstep, and then watching as the stunning blue-green of the ocean enters through ample windows. Now couple this with the elegance and amenities of Gurney’s, the Hamptons’ only world-class, full-service, year-round resort. With every need thoughtfully considered, the Residences offer butler service, including preparation for arrival, dedicated owners’ oceanfront cabanas, home maintenance, landscaping and secu-

rity, private chefs, event coordinators and water sports equipment storage. With ownership comes resort membership, including preferred access to resort services and amenities, such as a kids’ club and beach nannies at the ready to entertain your little ones. Gurney’s Montauk resort includes five unique dining and social venues, including the resort’s signature restaurant, Scarpetta Beach, the seaside sister of the famous Manhattan eatery. For a more casual dining experience head to Tillie’s, the resort’s inviting American kitchen, or pick up a cup of coffee and grab-and-go fare at Corso Coffee, the resort’s Italian-style coffee bar.

If you prefer to dine in your residence, perhaps on your private deck overlooking the water, room service is, of course, available. For the ultimate in relaxation, Gurney’s renowned Seawater Spa is mere steps away, providing a full range of therapeutic treatments and salon services to renew the body, mind and spirit. The ocean-view indoor pool uses water that has been drawn from the ocean, sand-filtered and warmed to the perfect temperature. Year-round, the wellness team coordinates both daily and special retreat events with the most sought-after fitness professionals in yoga, Pilates and spin. And then there’s Montauk, a historic resort town offering state parks, boating golfing, hiking, water sports, biking and horseback riding—and of course the iconic Montauk Lighthouse. Thanks to a team of dedicated preservationists, Montauk is a surfer’s paradise and a naturalist’s haven. Life in Montauk remains vibrant year-round, too, with winery tours, apple picking and holiday shopping in the Hamptons. No matter the season, the Residences at Gurney’s have it all. The properties are represented by Ryan Serhant, a top broker at Nest Seekers and star of Bravo’s Million Dollar Listing. The Serhant Team is the #1 Sales Team in New York as Ranked by Wall Street Journal Real Trends 2015; and the #6 Sales Team in the United States as Ranked by Wall Street Journal Real Trends 2015.

Kozu Lends a Sophisticated Taste to Southampton Zach Erdem’s latest restaurant venture introduces an irresistible fusion of Japanese and Peruvian fare Zach Erdem

R

estaurateur Zach Erdem seems to have a knack for establishing new summer hotspots in Southampton. And it’s no wonder why, as his endeavors have always been fueled by equal measures of passion and persistence. As the current owner of famed restaurant 75 Main, 32-yearold Erdem knows what it takes to keep patrons pleased. His latest labor of love is Kozu, a new Japanese fusion restaurant nestled along the tree-lined landscape of Main Street. Stepping into Kozu, diners will find a warm and elegant ambiance, with rich wooden floors and crisp white walls accentuated by the artwork of Raphael Mazzucco. A spacious outdoor patio makes for prime seating on those warm-weather days. The menu puts a Peruvian twist on classic Japanese cuisine and sushi. This is sure to become a spot where reservations are coveted. Southampton has long been synonymous with exquisite summers. This holds true for Turkish native Erdem, who immigrated to the United States in 2002 and fell in love with the welcoming atmosphere of the village. “The Hamptons to me is home,” Erdem says. “It is the location where my journey here in America first began.” That journey wasn’t without setbacks. His first six months in the United States were such a struggle that he decided to leave. But two days before his flight back to Turkey, he made a fortuitous trip to the Hamptons, where he stopped for lunch at 75 Main and made such an impression on the general manager that Erdem was offered a bar-

136 Main Street 174 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2016

tending position. Erdem took over as owner in 2010, and now the restaurant is more popular than ever, attracting famous faces such as Stanley Tucci, Sarah Jessica Parker and Sofia Vergara. Given Erdem’s experience and enthusiasm, Kozu is destined to be another success. The kitchen brings together an impressive culinary cast, featuring sous chef George Nikolopolous, formerly of Le Bernardin; sushi chef Joseph Kim, formerly of Morimoto; and head chef John Keller, who is the mastermind behind the spectacular menu. Dishes to look out for include the Kozu Ceviche, with aji amarillo, roasted corn, and red onion; and the Black Pepper Shrimp Skewers, with whiskey peppercorn butter sauce. Found within Kozu is Summer House, an upscale private lounge, and Hotel ZE, a five-star boutique hotel that allows diners to turn an unforgettable meal into an overnight getaway. Erdem is also the visionary behind newly opened nightclub AM Southampton, which boasts a rotation of world-renowned DJs. Erdem has had a big hand in sculpting the cultured village that served to inspire him, while preserving what set it apart from the beginning. “As well-known as Southampton is, it is still very quaint,” Erdem says. “There is so much charm and charisma you seldom find anywhere else, and that’s what makes Southampton so special.” ✦

FRED MARCUS STUDIO

When did you first realize you wanted to work in events planning? I was raised in the food industry. My parents had luncheonettes around Manhattan, and I was inspired to study restaurants and hotels, then went into catering and design work—I wanted everything to come together.

FRED MARCUS STUDIO

A True Larry Party

Tell us about your signature party “invasions.” People today are little jaded and need to be entertained. The invasion is another way of bringing a food or drink item into the room without stopping the party to sit down. More is better—20 waiters parading into the room with trays of hors d’oeuvres is jaw-dropping.

LAWRENCE SCOTT EVENTS 35 Bethpage Road ◆ Hicksville, NY 11801 516.933.7535 ◆ lawrencescottevents.com 176 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2016

What party trends have you been seeing? It depends where you are having your party. I beat to my own drum; it’s not about what’s in at the moment. For me, a trend is like a bar—I like long ones where people can gravitate to and connect. And everything has to focus around the dance area; don’t give them a reason to sit in the lobby. What’s your motto? Listen to your clients; it’s their taste, my style. I can’t design Versace if someone is into Ralph Lauren, but I can put my signature on things. Where do you find inspiration for your extravagant food displays? I could watch an old movie and never focus on the main actors but look at the scenery or background, such as something hanging on the wall. I could be traveling to Turkey, Berlin or anywhere in the world and see things differently. I didn’t invent the wheel; I just learned how to drive the car differently. I don’t think anybody ever invents anything, because history reinvents itself—sometimes what’s old is new again. If I wasn’t eating a sandwich with bacon, lettuce and tomato today, it would be with grilled salmon, arugula and sun-dried tomatoes.

How would you describe your signature style? Philippe Starck meets Marie Antoinette.

Can you share any no-fail tips that work at every party? Don’t hold back! Once you commit to a party, don’t nickel-and-dime, and always bring extra supplies for backup. When it comes to tent weddings, I always put wood floors down because most women don’t want to walk on grass with heels on. I love bringing the outside lighting into the tent and the inside out so it looks like one unit. Also, I marry the design of the house so it looks like an extension of the home. What should one always keep in mind when it comes to party planning? People love being taken care of. Make everyone feel like the chandelier in the room. ✦

VieVité:

Where Everything’s Coming Up Rosé AVENUE talks to Tunch Doker, President of Turquoise Life Beverage Brands, about his award-winning VieVité Rosé wines, and seizing the exceptional.

“A bottle of white, a bottle of red…” Why choose VieVité Rosé instead? VieVité—with its handsome and distinct packaging—is the quintessential drink for all occasions: it’s versatile and festive, with a funky, distinct soul. Wine critics, sommeliers and aficionados alike have all endorsed VieVité as the leading Provence rosé because of its truly perfected taste profile: a fruit forward, delicately balanced acidity; an artfully crafted blend of the best and most traditional Provencal grapes; and a long-lasting finish on the palate. I say ditch the Cab. Put down the ancient Sauv Blanc. Celebrate life…the “the fast life” with VieVité!. Who’s usually seen raising a glass? VieVité defines style and luxury, so our enthusiasts are sophisticated and independent, experiencing the best life has to offer. They’re also well traveled, so VieVité is found in luxury hotels, top restaurants and beach clubs from New York to the Hamptons, from Los Angeles to Miami. You offer rosé connoisseurs both VieVité and VieVité Extraordinaire. Discuss when each is the appropriate choice. Each embodies its own unique expression. VieVité in the white label is quintessentially casual. Complex yet refreshing, it’s perfect for being sipped poolside or complementing a relaxed yet festive gathering.

1 Little West 12th Street 178 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2016

VieVité Extraordinaire, dressed in its coveted tuxedo-like black label, is a true wine lover’s rosé. Unexpected and impressive, the robust flavors demand an elevated occasion, such as a sunset wedding. Rosé is associated with spring/summer. Explain why VieVité Rosé is a drink for all seasons. I believe savvy consumers let VieVité flow well beyond summer, serving it all year at brunch, as a predinner aperitif, and during parties. At Thanksgiving, the best pairing for dinner is VieVité Extraordinaire. Given its distinct style and bold Grenache grapes, the Extraordinaire stands up with great poise and perfection to turkey and all its accompaniments. Personally, a quintessential VieVité experience is during the winter, as an après–ski aperitif. VieVité Rosé receives consistent critical acclaim and awards. Why? Our highly acclaimed winery, Domaine Sainte Marie, is located in a unique area in the Côtes de Provence region of southern France. Given its very special terroir, the wines have naturally been cultivated as organic and biodynamic. This allows them to be consistent, and, as a result, the top-rated rosé reigning from Provence. I’m extremely proud of the authentic craftsmanship and endless passion that our winemaking team has dedicated to each and every bottle of VieVité. ✦

The Teen with a Selfless Spirit and Style to Match Maya Henry captures the public’s attention with her ambition, activism and flawless fashion sense

M

aya Henry is just 15 years old, but she’s already establishing a name for herself as a philanthropist and activist with the power to make a genuine impact on the world. The daughter of Azteca Henry and top personal injury lawyer Thomas J. Henry, the San Antonio teen made headlines earlier this year with an exquisite quinceañera that carried a $6 million price tag. Henry’s father called upon celebrity social event planner David Monn and his team of 150 to pull the event together. Her coming-ofage celebration had a guest list that hovered around 600 and featured unforgettable performances by popular artists Pitbull and Nick Jonas, as well as a high-energy dance group and a mariachi band. But for all of its decadence, Henry still cited the traditional father-daughter dance as the most special part of her night. Henry hardly fits the stereotype of a young socialite who is famous for simply being famous. She’s devoted herself to giving back to the community and supporting causes she cares about. Henry has taken a note from her father, working closely with several charities and even launching her own nonprofit, Maya’s Corner, which

180 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2016

provides remarkable opportunities to promising young students. This past winter, the organization awarded two students and their families courtside tickets to a San Antonio Spurs game. In the fall, thanks to a partnership with SA YES Foundation and My Kid’s Polo, Maya’s Corner will help deliver school uniforms to many San Antonio students in need. In addition to a tremendous heart, Henry also possesses an incredible eye for fashion. On June 6, she attended the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Awards in New York, along with the likes of Beyoncé, Heidi Klum, Michael Kors, and Naomi Campbell. Held at the Hammerstein Ballroom in New York, the CFDA Awards stand out as the most important yearly event on the American fashion calendar, bringing together a dizzying number of industry influencers and icons. That night, Henry was seated with Canadian model Coco Rocha, NBA superstar Dwyane Wade and celebrity stylist Calyann Barnett, plus Jonathan Cheban, founder of the Dishh and close friend to the Kardashian family. She fit right in with fashion aficionados. Floor-length and flowing, her semi-sheer Etro gown was accented with gorgeous jewels


Growing up, I always knew how lucky we are that my grandmother had the opportunities that she had and was able to provide those opportunities to my mother and to me.” by David Webb, an elegant triple-braid hairstyle by Laura Polko and a radiant finish by celebrity makeup artist Patrick Ta. Not one to go unnoticed even in among a crowd of A-list stars, Maya and her ensemble were praised as one of the night’s best beauty looks by Allure. This year’s upcoming presidential election has sparked a passion for politics in Henry, who is an outspoken supporter of Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign. Leveraging her massive social media following, Henry has been utilizing the hashtag #teensforhillary, bringing attention to issues that affect women. She hopes to show her peers that it’s possible to make a difference, despite being too young to vote. “Growing up, I always knew how lucky we are that my grandmother had the opportunities that she had and was able to provide those opportunities to my mother and to me,” says Henry. “I believe that with Hillary as president, we will only see more opportunities for young women.”—Danielle Kraese ✦

New Restaurant Round Up: From West to East

A

ll the owners and renters should be settling into their routines at their summer residences. There has been no indication that the sluggish real estate market has affected the onslaught of new upscale eateries on the East End. so I thought it might be fun to list a few places you might venture to for a new culinary experience.

Regenerative Medicine Offers Effective Treatment for Back Pain

“P

eople of any age and every lifestyle can experience lower back pain—and most will say there’s nothing worse! These aches are often unexpected and always disruptive to our daily activities and overall quality of life,” says Dr. Steven Victor, a boardcertified regenerative medicine physician. Back pain is usually treated with a combination of muscle relaxers, stretching exercises, cortisone injections and pain relief medications. This traditional approach effectively masks the pain; the results are temporary, however. In chronic cases, surgery is the recommended path. The field of regenerative medicine offers a more effective and targeted approach that focuses on restoration of health rather than suppression of pain. An individual’s own healing repair cells are harvested from a small amount of fat, and injected into the specific area of damage. This type of reparative therapy brings greater healing with negligible risk and no downtime. “Back pain is a significant area of opportunity for regenerative medicine. Of the patients I’ve treated, 90 percent have experienced substantial progress (80 to 100 percent improvement) within the first three months of their treatment. Believe me, when a patient suffers from back pain, this level of healing is not only remarkable, it is life-changing!” says Dr. Victor. ✦

THE CORCORAN GROUP What’s new in your real estate world that you’re excited about? I just got four Farrell Building Company exclusive listings from Wainscott to Water Mill, ranging in price from just under $7 million on Town Line Road to $18.45 million on Bridgehampton’s Highland Terrace. Farrell Building, the developer that has become synonymous with new construction both north and south of the highway throughout the Hamptons, has been a longtime client since the very early 2000s, and I probably have participated in nearly $250 million of transactions with them in one capacity or another. I am happy to call Joe Farrell a friend, and am honored and excited to be entrusted with so many of his great properties. What type of concierge like services do you offer to today’s luxury consumer, i.e., do you offer recommendations and referrals during and after the sale? Concierge work is definitely the mantle you take on when you sell a home in the Hamptons, especially to first-time buyers. They need everything from plumbers and electricians to pool and landscaping people to audio/visual and interior design experts. We are fortunate to have a wonderful service industry in the Hamptons that can handle all aspects of house and property care. Often I can direct a homeowner to a property manager who

Gary DePersia

Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker

will oversee all aspects of property as well as suggest talent with whom he or she has worked with over the years. In a recent sale I successfully pointed the buyer to both a landscape lighting team and a person who did a retractable awning for them. I am sure they will be reaching out for more people, and I will gladly keep making suggestions. Can you share a success story of your most creative tactics to help sell one of your listings? I recently listed a large home north of the highway for one of the developers I have been working with for more than a dozen years. He was resisting the idea of staging the property, something that I was urging him to do. As an inducement I offered to pick up part of the cost and suggested he use Meredith Baer, a company with a wonderful high-end furniture rental program. He agreed, and they did a superlative job of outfitting the house. Needless to say he was extremely happy when, not long after it went on the market, he had an accepted offer. I am not so sure it would have happened as quickly had it not been furnished. Did it cost me some commission? Sure. But the decade long relationship and the business going forward will more than compensate for that.

“Concierge work is definitely the mantle you take on when you sell a home in the Hamptons, especially to first-time buyers.”

Speaking of furnishing and staging spec homes, it appears you are a believer. Care to elaborate? To say I am a believer is a gross understatement. When selling new construction, furnishing the home, either by having an interior designer purchase and stage the home on the seller’s behalf or by hiring a company that sells or rents high end furnishings to do so definitely has many benefits.

Since more than 80 percent of buyers start their search online, unfurnished spec houses with large, boxy, empty rooms suffer in comparison with those that have been artfully staged. The rooms come alive, spatial relationships are defined, and the house has a warmer feel than its unfurnished competitors. Brokers and buyers alike always react more favorably to a well-staged or furnished home. Farrell Building recently staged the Parsonage Lane listing that I represent in Sagaponack with RH Modern, and everyone who has seen it raves about the look. That house presents beautifully. I recommended James Michael Howard, for whom I represent in his own fully furnished houses, to do the interiors of the Lifton-Green house on Hedges Lane, which debuted last September. I essentially sold that to the first person who walked in at the first open house. One of the overriding reasons that they bought it was because not only did it look sensational, but they didn’t have to do a thing other than fill the closets with their clothes.

DOUGLAS ELLIMAN - THE ATLANTIC TEAM What professional accomplishment are you most proud of? Maintaining our position as the #1 team in East Hampton for five years in a row is something that we are not only proud of but also helps motivate us to setting the bar even higher.

What are the qualities your team possesses that contribute to its success? We love where we work and what we do, and our clients can tell. With three equal partners, we are better able to serve our clients and provide a hands-on approach in managing their expectations. This equates to more referrals, a higher sales volume and an East Hampton record number of transactions. We all bring something different to the table, so having a variety of perspectives creates synergy within the team; it has been instrumental in coming up with fresh ideas to offer our clients a higher level of service. A client once said the Atlantic Team, coupled with Douglas Elliman, has “the team and company size, international exposure and innovation [that] were exactly what we were looking for. We systematically assessed the team’s skill sets, including experience in selling/ buying $5 million–plus properties, expertise and relevant distinguishing accomplishments, among other strengths. Personal characteristics we valued most were enthusiasm, high energy, good chemistry and an effective/efficient communication style. Through this fairly rigorous methodology, we were able to rank the agencies/brokers numerically, which then helped us focus on those candidates we believe were the best fit. Thus we hired the Atlantic Team.”

How do you brand yourself, i.e., what distinguishes you from your competitors? As the Atlantic Team, we envision ourselves as a company within a company, defining the work we do as a business that operates within a collection of professionals specializing in all aspects of real estate to service clients and surpassing their expectations. We’re always hitting the ground running and taking the old adage ABC—“Always be closing”—and evolving it by anticipating the needs of our clients who have not yet been able to articulate what they want due to the ever-changing market. We founded the Atlantic Team to distinguish ourselves as the leading agents in the industry with exceptional service and without compromise.

What advice would you give individual agents considering entering into a partnership or team arrangement? In the past 10 years, we have seen firsthand that the team model is really the best way to manage and service both our listings and our clientele, and we wouldn’t think of doing real estate any other way. The most important lesson we’ve learned is to make sure that there are clear roles and responsibilities: this way we can set reasonable expectations for each other. How long have you worked together professionally? This year is our 11th year at Douglas Elliman, and we have been a working team for the past nine years.

“With three equal partners, we are better able to serve our clients and provide a hands-on approach in managing their expectations.”

THE CORCORAN GROUP aquatics therapy for cancer patients to its unique programming for adults with learning disabilities, the JCC provides countless programs and support to so many New Yorkers, from every walk of life.

To what do you attribute your success in real estate? First and foremost, a voracious appetite for knowing what’s available—publicly and privately—on the market. Inventory is always in play in New York City: from the latest new condo development to a recently announced historic building conversion, there’s no substitute for knowledge, experience and access. I am always touring properties, scouring the market or tapping my personal network to identify opportunities for my clients.

What word or phrase best describes you personally and professionally? There is a guiding phrase or mantra that I ask myself regularly and that’s “Am I ‘interested’ or am I ‘committed?’” Obviously there’s a big distinction between the two. I’d describe myself as committed— personally and professionally—to all that I do. Time is too precious a resource to waste, so when I’m involved, there’s no question that I’m engaged completely.

In today’s market, what are the home trends that affluent buyers are most attracted to? The fundamentals never change— location, great layouts and beautiful finishes. Concierge services, state-of-theart in-house fitness and spa facilities, pet grooming services: at the end of the day, these are simply amenities that ebb and flow based on the latest editorial coverage in the New York Times. Ultimately, unless the property meets the buyer’s definition for “prime location” and “top-of-the-line workmanship” and we can accurately demonstrate the value proposition, the Michelin-star private dining room is irrelevant. Are there any causes that you are passionate about and why? There are some extraordinary nonprofit and community-based organizations in NYC that are doing exceptional work. One of those is the JCC of Manhattan.

What is most different in your career now as compared to when you began? Fifteen years ago, it was relatively easy to position, package and list a property—marketing was more simplistic. Today, brokers need to develop individual custom campaigns for each listing that utilizes the most effective mix of traditional and digital media, social media outreach and publicity. As the communication landscape changes, so must the way in which we connect buyers and sellers.

BROWN HARRIS STEVENS What are the qualities that make for an A-List broker? Experience, professionalism, social skills, high energy, confidence, creativity, perseverance and chutzpah!

Can you share a success story of your most creative tactic to attract buyers to your listings? Years ago I came across an audio box that could be plugged into the wall at a listing. It broadcast details about the home and my contact information on your car radio. Buyers drove to the listing, saw the sign out front, tuned in to the radio frequency noted on the sign and voila! I had sales help without being there. Today, I use a video doorbell. I set it up when I represent new construction. Buyers come to look in the windows, and a sign at the door instructs them to ring the bell for information. I answer in live time from my phone. There’s no faster way to reach an exclusive broker and get information about the property.

“I’ve always been an entrepreneur, and I treat my real estate business the same way.” Cite some examples of how you see the role of a broker changed in today’s environment? Today, one needs to be technology savvy. A buyer’s first step in house hunting starts on the Internet. People have short attention spans, so fabulous photos are imperative. Older buyers use e-mail and Facebook. Younger buyers text and use Snapchat. A broker needs to know where and how to reach his/her audience.

What advice do you give someone looking to buy real estate in your area now? Hurry up! Our prices west of the Canal are rising. More buyers have discovered the beauty, value and convenience of owning in Quogue/Westhampton/ Remsenburg. This increased demand has shown itself through several bidding wars on some of my recent transactions.

Detail your most exciting sale or your newest listing. I represent a fabulous, brand-new modern home. Designed by award-winning architects Barnes Coy, the 6,000+/- squarefoot delight sits on a prime Quogue waterfront parcel. Superb quality, matte and shiny finishes, positive and negative spaces, a glass pool house, a black gunite pool and dramatic views set the stage for a modern Hamptons experience not usually available in Quogue. I’m very excited about it. Pricing per request. Another exciting new project I’m representing is Quogue Mews. In the very center of Quogue Village, the Mews is a private enclave made up of four brand-new traditional homes. Built by a renowned local developer, the homes have the feel of vintage and the amenities of today. They include fine finishes, Control4 automation, video doorbells, radiant heated floors, 10-foot ceilings. full basements ready for finishing, heated gunite pools and spas. The first, Quogue Mews #1, has just come to market. To what do you attribute your success in real estate? I’ve always been an entrepreneur, and I treat my real estate business the same way. The old adage “You have to spend money to make money” was never more true. Hiring the best photographers, spreading the word in great ads and going over the top to market my properties have proven to be a successful strategy. But the best part of my business is that my husband, Barry Altman, of Builder, Inc., in Quogue and Quality Crafted Homes of Southampton, is my partner in all things. His knowledge and good sense help me in many real estate related situations. I’m very lucky for that.

S O T H E B Y ’ S I N T E R N A T I O N A L R E A LT Y an oceanfront Lily Pond Lane property for $70 million. These massive sales have defied any thought of an ultra-luxury slowdown. This is what makes Hamptons real estate so fascinating and the topic of conversation at every dining table.

If you won the lottery, what two properties would you buy in the Hamptons? The first would be 19 and 23 Chauncey Close in East Hampton for their awe-inspiring panoramic views over Georgica Pond, Georgica Beach and the crashing waves of the sea. It’s one of those once-ina-lifetime sanctuary properties of rare natural beauty that you don’t often get to experience. You can paddleboard to the beach as swans float by. Heaven. $32 million lottery ticket needed. The second would be 141 and 145 Sayres Path in Wainscott for their unbelievable interiors by Heiberg Cummings Design—the freestanding spa is a fantasy land, with a sunken mahogany fire pit that seats 20, a 13 x 9 hot pool, a cold-plunge pool, soft and hot saunas (caldarium, tepidarium) with huge picture windows overlooking nature, and it is something out of this world. $27 million lottery ticket needed. What do you say to those that argue the global economy is in a negative spiral, so they should not buy now? I tell them what I see: It’s a buyers market, especially on the high end. This is exactly the time to buy. Sellers are more negotiable, and choice Hamptons real estate can hold its value and generate a higher rate of return when the stock market dips. You can actually enjoy where you have placed your funds while the economy recovers. Besides, the high level of wealth among buyers of homes in the Hamptons shelters the market from massive downturns like we see in other parts of the country. The Hamptons has built-in protection: its location only 90 miles from Wall Street, the financial epicenter from where the majority of our buyers originate. This is where they want to be. That will never change. This is their playground.

Senior Global Real Estate Advisor, Licensed Associate Broker

If your client asks you where you think are the safe bets to buy in the Hamptons, what do you tell them? This is my 17th year as a broker at Sotheby’s International Realty in the Hamptons market, and I have seen a lot of changes, but one thing hasn’t: “South of the Highway” and waterfronts are king. Meadow Lane and Gin Lane in Southampton; Sagaponack; or Lily Pond Lane, West End Road, Further Lane and Chauncey Close in East Hampton are home to some of the most beautiful real estate in the Hamptons, not to mention some of the priciest in the country. More affordable, but high in demand: beautifully constructed village houses with great finishes within walking distance to town and the beach in Southampton, East Hampton and the Amagansett Lanes. Bridgehampton horse country has a steady demand for those who need more land and open space but can’t afford south-of-thehighway prices.

“My clients thank me for what they call my “intensity”—I never stop working. Thank goodness I don’t need much sleep!”

Did you have a mentor when you started in real estate, and what is the most valuable thing you learned from them? I started in commercial real estate in NYC with my dad in the ’90s. He taught me that you have to be patient—and positive—no matter what!

So, what’s the “Flip Du Jour” these days? In first place, serial Hampton flipper Scott Bommer sold his East Hampton estate for $110 million in an off-market deal in January— less than two years after paying about $94

What are the qualities that make for an A-List broker? With so many brokers in the real estate industry these days, it can be a daunting challenge for a client to find the right one to work with. There are many qualified individuals in real estate, but not all are equal and provide the same service. An A-List broker must have special talents. First of all, you must enjoy what you do and have the patience to listen to your clients’ criteria and carefully match their needs to what is available in the marketplace. A good broker always keeps a finger on the pulse of the market. They provide in-depth knowledge, updated market research and clear and frequent communication. It is important to be available to provide clients with answers to their questions, give solid advice and to do a little hand-holding when needed. Having an understanding of each of the city’s neighborhoods is necessary for selecting properties that will meet customer expectations. No one wants to needlessly waste time visiting properties

“I genuinely enjoy the people I work with, and many of my business relationships have turned into long-term friendships.” that will not meet up to the client’s requirements. A good broker will be candid and honest. An A-List broker takes on the role of advisor, provides comparisons and suggests options and alternatives. Being fully transparent is critical. Clients must be protected from making hasty decisions, whether it’s purchasing, selling and or finding a rental property as their home. Every deal is an important financial investment, regardless of price.

What word or phrase best describes you professionally and personally? The two most important words that reflect who I am are dedication and honesty. Once I take on a matter, I see it through to the end. I utilize my knowledge of the market and give freely of my time and talents. I am always available to my customers. I genuinely enjoy the people I work with, and many of my business relationships

have turned into long-term friendships. Dedication to a client involves good communication, knowledge, frankness, a sense of humor and above all patience. I am protective of my customers and guide them into not making impulsive or quick decisions. These qualities have served me well over the years.

“Once I agree to work with clients (either a buyer or a seller), I listen to their needs and identify their motives in the transaction and stay the course until their goal is reached.”

How do you brand yourself, i.e., what distinguishes you from your competitors? I think the most important thing to remember in any transaction is to focus on the deal. This focus, and the ability to bring about a meeting of the minds between buyers and sellers, are key. Be credible, with in-depth market knowledge, full disclosure, integrity, work ethic, fairness and honesty. To what do you attribute your success in real estate? Once I agree to work with clients (either a buyer or a seller), I listen to their needs and identify their motives in the transaction and stay the course until their goal is reached. What is the most valuable tool that assists you in the sales process of converting a buyer? The key with buyers is help educate them on the current market, and matching the available inventory to their needs and key criteria. Sometime this can take time; however, it imperative in this market that buyers see all the available options and understand the trends, and are confident they have made the best purchase for their needs.

What is your proudest professional accomplishment? Every successful transaction is an accomplishment, but I think obtaining my broker’s license and becoming a graduate of the Real Estate Institute really helped shape my career. What qualities can a client count on from you? True representation. Knowledge. Experience. Access. Branding. Loyalty. Confidentiality.

DOUGLAS ELLIMAN REAL ESTATE outreaches- to attract buyers-recently hosted LA’s top 50 brokers for a private dinner out there.

What are the qualities that make for an A-List broker? Hard-work, dedication, tenacity, passion, charisma and of course market and product knowledge.

What phrase best describes you professionally, and personally? Many of my clients/ colleagues, say of me—‘mover and shaker,’ because I produce great results for them in record time. ‘Loyal’ is one word I would use.

To what do you attribute your success in real estate? One of the main factors is treating others the way I like to be treated-with respect, professionalism, honesty and kindness. I am fortunate to have a great relationship with the brokerage community, developers and clients alike.

What are your hobbies/favorite pastimes? Traveling; when I manage to escape from work. Spending time with family and friends, reading, running. I enjoy giving back and donate to many worthy causes.

Detail your most exciting sale or new listing. We most recently sold the Penthouse at Baccarat Hotel and Residences—8000SF, listed at $54M!

TOWN COMMERCIAL What neighborhood of New York City do you find the most exciting? I have lived in NoMad (north of Madison Square Park) at 29th Street and Fifth Avenue for more than eight years. My grandfather (and his father) owned a liquor store on 28th Street off Madison from the 1950s until a few years before I moved into the neighborhood. My family and I have seen the neighborhood grow and transform with excitement. Madison Square Park has been the catalyst for growth in this part of town, and it’s where I proposed to my fiancée last October. The Ace, Nomad and Gansevoort Hotels have all opened while I have lived in the area, as well as Madison Square Eats, Eataly and countless new restaurants. There are several exciting new developments slated for the area, with significant potential for continued growth and development.

What is your role at Town Residential? I manage and oversee Town Commercial, an arm of Town Residential, which I helped found in 2014. We focus primarily on retail leasing, office leasing and investment sales in New York City. Has this new division been successful? Short answer, yes! In the first 18 months, our team has grown to almost 20 agents, and we have successfully closed approximately $1.5 billion in deal volume. Rounding out Town’s fully integrated services platform—which includes luxury residential sales, leasing, and the marketing, sales and leasing of property developments—we have also been incredibly successful in helping the 550-plus residential agents expand their businesses by offering their clients services they previously could not.

Jonathan Butwin

Director of Commercial Sales and Leasing

How does this differ from your previous jobs in real estate? I spent almost seven years primarily focused on retail-driven investment sales nationally, including a few notable retail transactions on Lincoln Road in Miami Beach. Being a part of Town has afforded me the opportunity to be hyper-focused on New York City while being exposed to the residential side of the business. I love that I have become the go-to for my friends and family in their perpetual searches for apartments (although my involvement ends after I introduce them to a Town Residential agent!).

“In the first 18 months, our team has grown to almost 20 agents, and we have succesfully closed approximately $1.5 billion in deal voume.”

If you had to live and work in any other city, which would it be? Washington, D.C., without question. I graduated from George Washington University and loved the energy and offerings of the area. The growth and evolution of the city is among the fastest I have seen, and I would love to find a way in the near future to do some work there, allowing more frequent visits. Can you see yourself in another career other than real estate, and why? I spent two summers during college interning for the New York Mets in their front office and enjoyed every second. I would love to pitch, but they seem to have that covered right now.

BROWN HARRIS STEVENS What do you like most about your career vs. When you started? What I like most is the experience and confidence I have earned after nearly 20 years in the business. There is a real sense of satisfaction driving customers around the East End and referring to the properties that have sold and often a little history. It gives my clients a knowledge and understanding of the market and where it stands today. It is also incredibly useful to have todays technical advantages at our finger tips. Gone are the days of the oversized tax map books in the back seat and paper maps.

How do you brand yourself. What distinguishes you from your competitors? I don’t like to think of it in terms of branding, but I try to incorporate my philosophies of life and treat customers like I would my friends: do what you can to make it a successful, enriching experience. The rest should take care of itself.

Jane Babcook

Real Estate? I moved here in 1989 to work for an Olympic Equestrian rider who needed a professional to oversee his horses. With the birth of my daughter Emma in 1993, travel was no longer a viable option. A friend in the business suggested I try Real Estate. The attention to detail and the hard work ethic so characteristic of the horse industry was great training for the demands of a successful Real Estate career.

Are there any causes that you are passionate about and why? I am an advocate for the ethical treatment of animals. I have lived around animals and have had pets all my life, although these days that is limited to dogs and horses. I am also a board member of Breakwater Yacht Club, whose mission as a local sailing facility open to all, has promoted sailing to the youth of Sag Harbor. Breakwater’s success has been an invaluable resource to the community, continuing Sag Harbor’s legacy as a hub of sailing and providing yet another reason why the Hamptons are such a unique place to live. Finally, I am an avid boater and love to explore the scenic beauty of the area. Whether that is fishing, sailing, digging for clams or paddle boarding, I try to convey to my clients the pristine nature of the East End and the need to preserve it. I share the concerns of many about maintaining its resources.

NEST SEEKERS INTERNATIONAL What do you think it is about you that creates so many dedicated clients? Market knowledge, honesty and attention are most important to my clients. When working together my clients know that their interests are protected and their values will be maximized.

Cite some examples of how you see the role of a broker changed in today’s environment? The internet has changed everything, and there is a lot of information available to both buyers and sellers however not all is accurate. I have extensive knowledge in this market and therefore am able to guide my clients accordingly to a successful transaction.

Detail for us a new and exciting listing of yours. I just listed a great property South of the Highway in East Hampton down the street from the Ocean with a lot of potential for a savvy buyer. I’m also excited about an upcoming waterfront property in Southampton that will offer unprecedented design, style and amenities.

To what do you attribute your success in real estate? Hard work and being very responsive to the needs of my clients and helping them to find what they looking for. The majority of business comes from referrals from my clients, which is a great testimony to the services I provide.

What are the qualities that make for an A-List broker? Work ethic and professionalism are key. I work tirelessly to get deals done and I am always available to my clients, I love this business and therefore make this a priority.

THE CORCORAN GROUP

Mark Martov

Licensed Real Estate Salesperson

Michelle Moshe

Licensed Real Estate Salesperson To what do you attribute your success in real estate? Michelle and I love our jobs. We take pride and joy in helping people make the most important decision of their lives (maybe second, after marriage). We work closely with developers and builders, and therefore understand the process of building a home from beginning to end. Michelle has a background in design, so she can help configure a layout and visualize the potential of a space and how to make it a home. The word “no“ is really not in our team’s vocabulary when it comes to clients. Sometimes we have to get creative when structuring a deal, but we always get the job done for our customers.

An example of how you went above and beyond the call of duty to make a sale? Where do we even begin? Just to name a few: we have met a client at a property in between their 3 a.m. connecting flight; we’ve built out four custom closets for our client in fashion, knowing closet space would be a make-or-break situation; we have paid for architects to build out a space so that a buyer can properly envision a home.

Why do you attract so many A-list clients? Outside of knowing all of the ins and outs of a real estate transaction, clients choose to work with us because of our relatable and grounded personalities. We’ve also found that a little sense of humor goes a long way—it’s really key in breaking the ice and offers a great foundation for establishing trusting relationships. Humor breaks a lot of barriers. If you can laugh with someone, it speaks to the level of trust in your relationship.

Michelle: As a part of the Syrian Jewish community in Brooklyn, philanthropy has a large presence in our lives, whether it be hosting bake sales or sponsoring weekly Torah classes (with my husband personally barbecuing for all the attendees!) We are also involved with Shuva Yisrael, a synagogue that raises money to accommodate family members while their loved ones undergo treatment at various NYC hospitals.

Are there any causes that you are very passionate? Mark: My mom recently passed away from cancer, so I have become very involved in organizations to help find a cure.

What are some of the best values out there? Bushwick and Bed-Stuy—they are situated geographically between neighborhoods (Williamsburg, Prospect Park/Crown Heights) that are pushing record prices. If you don’t get in now before the neighborhood starts shifting, you’ll be priced out of those areas as well.

“Sometimes we have to get creative when structuring a deal, but we always get the job done for our customers.”

In what other than real estate can you see yourself and why? Mark: I’d love to have the best job in the world—to be a dad some day. Michelle: The sky is the limit in real estate, but I will always be, first and foremost, a partner to my husband and hopefully one day a mother.

NEST SEEKERS INTERNATIONAL How do you brand yourself, i.e., what distinguishes you from your competitors? What sets me apart from the competition is that I actually have a plan, an actual schedule and accountability to produce results for my seller, and it’s all performance-based. I track my numbers so I know exactly how many contacts to appointments, appointments to contracts, and contracts to closed. Sellers want someone who runs it like a business, and that’s how my team operates (or they can go fill a desk somewhere else). The team is comprised of me as the listing agent, two buyer agents and a full-time assistant: nothing slips through the cracks, and we’re truly on the seller’s side. This is why we have already 30 SALE transactions sold and pending in just five months.

What are your hobbies/favorite pastimes? My hobbies are golf, studying classical piano, sailing and having time for my family. Did you have a mentor when you started in real estate? What is the most valuable thing that you learned from them? Mike Ferry is still my mentor. What I learned from him was “Don’t be attached to the outcome, and start every day at zero.” In other words, always be prospecting. The last thing a seller wants is to work with a desperate agent who transmits anxiety to buyers, and if you play the numbers game, you’re in it to win it. You’re also exempt from any market condition, whether it’s up or down.

To what do you attribute your success in real estate? I had very disciplined schooling and training with the merchant marines, and there are things you learn in an environment like that which are not taught at school: leadership, the team, accountability and working toward a common goal where everyone succeeds and not just the individual calling the shots. It’s a collective success: no challenge is too big—assess, adapt and overcome.

What is your proudest professional accomplishment? My proudest professional accomplishment was being able to start a business doorto-door in another country with nothing and achieve 30 offices and 2,000 salespeople in a matter of three years. Transitioning from being a successful entrepreneur to working in a total different environment and succeeding just as much…nothing comes without barriers and obstacles, and it makes every day more worth my while and exciting. Tomorrow cannot come soon enough!

THE CORCORAN GROUP For those selling a home, what are the little things they can do that make a big difference? Sellers should store away personal items and photographs and make their home as “clutter-free” as possible. Most of our sellers are weekend residents so it is an easier process than for a full time resident. First impressions are key to how a buyer feels about a house. Sellers need to simplify.

What do you like to do in your spare time? I am dedicated to staying fit and healthy. I take long walks with my dogs and exercise almost daily at Pure Barre Southampton which combines ballet barre and pilates. Tell us something about you that most people don’t know. Most people do not know that I was born in Springfield, Missouri and raised in the Midwest. Chicago as a matter of fact. I moved to Manhattan right out of college and spent many years there before settling in the Hamptons.

What do you like most about your job? The aspect of real estate that I like most and that gives me the most pleasure is helping people identify that “just right” property and successfully putting a deal together for both seller and buyer. There is nothing more satisfying than being of service. What causes are you passionate about? I am dedicated to many local East End charities. I am a true animal lover so I tend to support our local animal rescue organizations and shelters. I am also passionate about the Ellen Hermanson Foundation and the Breast Center at Southampton Hospital. I am a breast cancer survivor whose life was saved by the physicians and technicians at the Breast Center where I was first diagnosed. I am on the Board of the Have a Heart Community Trust which helps local people in need and I am a co-chair of Corcoran Cares which supports several East End charities.

What do you see as some of the best values out there in your neighborhood? Water Mill is becoming very popular for buyers and there are some really good values at every price point in this charming hamlet.

KLEMM REAL ESTATE Real Estate is both a lifestyle and a full-time profession for me. This is a family business which I live, eat and breathe and I love doing. I am an expert in Litchfield County real estate with an in-depth knowledge of the inventory and current market conditions. I have personally sold over $700 million in Litchfield County real estate including the highest sale of the year countywide in four of the past five years.

“This is a family business which I live, eat and breathe and I love doing.”

This is home for me, I love it and I intend to make my parents proud and serve my clients for the long-run.

In the highly competitive world of residential real estate, successful result is a combination of professional experience and accumulated real estate market knowledge. Christine Saar personifies both of those things. Born and raised on the East End, Christine has nearly twenty years of real estate experience in the Hamptons. She has earned a reputation among her colleagues and clients as a consummate real estate professional and is, not surprisingly, a consistent top producer in the East Hampton office. Besides being a master real estate broker, Christine is also an active community member with a strong presence on the local East End scene. As part of her community involvement, she supports many local organizations. This social activist is an animal lover who assists the Animal Rescue Fund. When not producing top sales for her office, Christine enjoys traveling the world and spending time at the beach. In the ever-changing real estate market, she is a constantly succeeding broker who is in a league of her own.

There’s no place like home. For Deirdre S. Devita, that place is Remsenburg. The serene hamlet of Remsenburg, located on the western edge of Southampton Township, just 80 miles from New York City, offers its residents all of the benefits of the Hamptons lifestyle (access to gorgeous beaches, nearby villages with shops, restaurants, and theaters...) minus the crowds and the traffic. Deirdre says of the bucolic place, “There is no commercial activity here - not even a traffic light!” “And, for a hamlet that spans less than three miles, we have a high ratio of waterfront to non-waterfront properties,” adds Deirdre. Like the rest of the area west of the canal in Southampton, here you can still get great values in real estate, compared with places further east. Being an insider and master real estate broker, Deirdre shares,“ The past year has seen record-breaking sales on the waterfront. People are starting to catch on.” “Below is an example of a property that would cost twice as much if it were situated 20 miles east of here: a very-private estate, on over two acres of open bay front, with one of the all-time best back yards ever. Still available. Come and see for yourself,” shares the real estate expert Deirdre. Below is Deirdre’s newest property listing.

THE CORCORAN GROUP

Martha Friedricks-Glass Licensed Associate Real Estate Broker

Who is your most favorite professional role model? By far, it’s Barbara Corcoran. When I joined Corcoran, there were only 45 brokers, and we were like Barbara’s family. She schooled us in developing good work habits and time management, pushed us to take chances and “go the extra mile” in listing presentations, encouraged us with little rewards during “down cycles” and conveyed the importance of inclusivity, not exclusivity. She was funny, kind, generous, smart and loving. She always made her brokers feel important and special, and I bring that spirit to my work. If you were in the buyer’s shoes, how would you want to be courted by your broker? After 20 years as a broker, I bought a new apartment for me and my husband. That experience gave me a renewed appreciation and empathy for the challenges buyers encounter: submitting your best offer in bidding wars, deciding on the neighborhood and home, changing your mind, expanding your search, and that magical feeling you get when you find your home and your home finds you. All buyers have dreams of where and how they want to live, and I help them realize that dream. It’s important to listen carefully, to be transparent and forthcoming with the good news and the not-so-good news, and to bring some fun into the process. My buyers know I am on their side, working diligently to get them the apartment they love. What are the ways you are helpful to buyers and sellers? To make informed decisions, buyers and sellers need information. Sellers need to know how similar properties are priced, what has sold in the building and neighborhood, and the current state of the market. Proper pricing is most important. It is better to price competitively and receive offers than to overprice and have no activity. Serious buyers want to make offers. They are knowledgeable and well-educated in market trends and have a good sense of what a property should sell for. I always craft my buyers’ offers to catch the attention of the seller, perhaps with a photo of the family, bios of the buyers and certainly with a good opening offer.

A Fresh Look at London Luxury The recently renovated Lanesborough takes visitors to savory new heights

S

tep inside the recently renovated Lanesborough in London’s illustrious Knightsbridge neighborhood, and you may never want to leave. The extensive project has essentially transformed the residence ambience while maintaining the heart of its signature style. Expect to be dazzled by breathtaking details such as 54 glittering crystal chandeliers, precisely cut and book-matched Italian marble, and jewel-toned touches throughout the guest rooms. Trimmings and finishings are all courtesy of British and French suppliers of the highest quality. Cabinet Alberto Pinto reconceptualized the interiors with all the finest contemporary innovations, including new thermally efficient roofs, while celebrating the building’s architectural history. Using well-established techniques in embroidery, cabinetmaking, lacquering and gilding, a team of more than 300, largely British, artisans imparted their handiwork upon the hotel. The effect is a brighter yet still richly refined aesthetic with eclectic touches, including handpainted trompe l’oeil features and a magnificent rendering of a grand tent on the ceiling of the Queen Anne entrance. This reimagining of the Regency period is utterly exquisite.

“Beneath a gossamer glass-domed roof, guests dine upon contemporary French dishes and modern cuisine with enticing international influences.” The highly anticipated new restaurant, Céleste, embodies the hotel’s latest culinary crusade with executive chef Florian Favario and three Michelin-starred chef patron Eric Frechon at the helm. Beneath a gossamer glass-domed roof, guests dine upon contemporary French dishes and modern cuisine with enticing international influences. Who wouldn’t relish pressed foie gras terrine with toasted brioche, Home County lamb with courgette couscous and homemade harissa, and handcrafted sugar strawberry chantilly? The menu features globally inspired flavors and only the best local ingredients. In addition to breakfast, lunch and dinner, a daily tea is served in Céleste. A distinctly English way to spend an otherwise rushed afternoon, the time-honored ritual includes freshly baked

scones, decadent clotted cream and homemade preserves. Offerings can be made vegetarian and gluten-free upon advance request. To make the experience one of a kind, the dining room fills with relaxing piano music. And at the end of a long day, rare and exclusive cigars and cognacs dating back as far as 1770 can also be enjoyed in the distinguished atmosphere of the Lanesborough’s iconic Garden Room. Gaze out at panoramic views of London’s famed Hyde Park. Eat in a conservatory-style restaurant with a luminous sky dome. Rest in a canopy bed made cloudlike with bespoke tailoring. Enjoy all the comforts of your very own personal butler service. This is the new Lanesborough experience. ✦

The Fountain of Youth for Your VSPOT Cindy Barshop Revolutionizes Women’s Sexual Health

C

indy Barshop, formerly of Real Housewives of New York City and the founder of the wildly successful Completely Bare spa, is at it again with her newest endeavor, VSPOT™ Medi-Spa! With Completely Bare, Cindy helped to revolutionize the way women talked about personal grooming. Now with VSPOT™ Medi-Spa, she’s doing the same for women’s sexual health. Specializing in FDA-approved FemiLift laser technology, VSPOT™ offers a nonsurgical solution for the vaginal loosening, dryness, painful sex and incontinence that can come along with childbirth, menopause and just being a woman. What inspired you to start VSPOT? After I got treated with the FemiLift for vaginal dryness, looseness and SUI (stress urinary incontinence—yes, I just said that), I was shocked with how awesome the result was. When faced with sexual struggles, men pop a pill. In the past, women have gone underserved, but not any longer. I opened VSPOT™ Medi-Spa because I want all women to have the opportunity to feel good about feeling good. Who performs the treatment? All treatments are administered by female gynecologists Dr. Elizabeth Eden, President of the New York Gynecological Society, and renowned Women’s Sexual Health Gynecologist Dr. Carolyn Delucia. What are the treatments like? There is no surgery, no downtime, no anesthesia and no pain. A series of three ten-minute treatments, 4–5 weeks apart, are recommended for optimal, long-lasting results. ✦

MEET ME IN MEXICO

AVENUE’s senior editor Wendy Sy ventures to the Riviera Maya

Shopping spree A visit to the boutiques and street vendors in the area are a must. I bought a number of goods, including a map-printed scarf, sunglasses, string bracelets and little keepsakes such as keychains that are perfect for gift-giving.

I spent my trip at the Grand Velas Riviera Maya, a 205-acre all-inclusive luxury resort with three distinct areas of suites to stay in and hang out at—the Zen Grand, the Ambassador and the Grand Class. Each has its own ambience, and all of the suites feature a private terrace, a walk-in closet, a fully stocked minibar and a huge Jacuzzi. It’s so cozy that I wanted to just stay in, but there was much more outside to explore! You can hop on the 24-hour shuttle at the lobby of each area to easily get from one place to another.

There is definitely NOT a short supply of dining options in the Riviera Maya. At the Grand Velas resort, there are eight unique restaurants, each featuring a menu curated by acclaimed chefs. Be sure to try the grilled mahi mahi at Chaká, the rice pasta with tomato, basil and zucchini at Frida, and the sweet crème brûlée at Piaf.

Katy Hine Delivers Whether she’s managing properties in Tribeca or the Upper East Side, Katy Hine has you covered.

F

or Katy Hine, there is no home management project she—and her team—haven’t handled. As a luxury concierge specialist, she’ll arrange for the most detailed repairs and high-end renovations for her clients, as well as provide personal assistance, from coordinating detailed travel arrangements to running errands around Manhattan. Read on as this hands-on home concierge tells you more: What is one thing your clients have in common? They don’t have time to deal with the little idiosyncrasies of running a fine home. I’m on call when they need me: I specialize in working for people who don’t always need or want a full-time manager. Sounds like no day is the same. That’s what I love about my work. Just today I was looking for a tiny decorative screw for a door handle that somehow disappeared. Now, I’m on a rooftop taking photos of holes that some carpenter bees made in a pergola, and I just finished a conference call with a landscape architect about replacing garden lights for another client. Is there one thing your clients don’t know about you? After college while still in my early 20s, I started as a housekeeper. I’ve been a member of a household staff, so I’m able to come in and easily work with a homeowner’s current staff. It will be a smooth, seamless transition because every one of us is on the same team, we all want happy homeowners! ✦

Inspired by the jungle and natural water pools of the Yucatán Peninsula, the spa at Grand Velas is the definition of tranquility. Guided by a personal valet, I took an hour-long Water Journey, a relaxation ritual composed of seven different water experiences, including a shower infused with Vitamin C essential oils, following a visit to the sauna, steam room, clay room and ice room. Afterward, I took a swim in the hydrotherapy pool, then went for a Hindu Foot and Scalp massage. The treatment was so comfortable that I fell asleep!

Under the sea

View from above

An entire day of my trip was spent visiting the eco-archaeological site Xcaret Park. It was a lot walking, but so worth it to see all of the animals, including birds, jaguars and coatis. The site has a rotating Scenic Tower, which goes up to 260 feet, providing panoramic views of the Caribbean—the crystal clear blue and turquoise shades of the water are unbelievably beautiful.

One must-do activity is the Sea Trek. It’s similar to scuba diving but, instead of breathing underwater through a mask and snorkel, you wear an astronaut-like helmet and walk through a guided path to discover the colorful fish, turtles and stingrays in the ocean.

Beach bound

The beaches of Playa del Carmen have the softest white sand. I went for a run there after the spa visit—no sneakers required! I’ll take this workout over the gym any day.

Megyn Kelly and her husband, Doug Brunt,, led Xander Parish the applause at the New York Philharmonic’s Spring Gala, a celebration of composer John Williams’’ iconic film scores. The Fox News star joked,“We crossed to the Dark Side,” after posing with Darth Vader . The engaging evening conducted by David Newman featured film clips from Star Wars, Jaws, Schindler’s List,, and my personal favorite, Born on the Fourth of July.. Special event chair and composer Karen LeFrak, who just had a composition of hers titled “Gentle Memories” added to the repertoire of the Mariinsky Ballet, greeted violinist Joshua Bell, Aby Rosen and Samantha Boardman, Didi and Oscar Schafer, Daisy Soros, Matthew Van Besien, and Hilaria and Alec Baldwin, who’s on the orchestra’s board and hosts their radio broadcasts. He said of his role, “I’m not a member of the Philharmonic; I feel like I’m the batboy on the Yankees.” John Williams says, “I’m enormously grateful people have embraced this music, and it’s brought them to orchestral music in the way that it has for many younger people. I don’t make a particular distinction between ‘high art’ and ‘low art.’ Music is there for everybody. It’s a river we can all put our cups into, and drink it, and be sustained by it.” The 84-year-old legend added, “You’re never anywhere near finished. So the idea of retiring or putting it aside is unthinkable. There’s too much to learn.” The Phil’s season runs through July 29. nyphil.org

Brooke Shields was first exposed to the New York Academy of Art during their infamous “Take Home A Nude” benefit. “I’ve always loved nudes,” the actress confessed. The relationship with the school continued to flourish because of her friendship with the noted painter Will Cotton, a senior critic there. Cotton painted portraits of Brooke and her children Rowan and Grier. On July 7 Brooke will open the Academy’s “Call of the Wild,” an exhibition at Art Southampton at Nova’s Ark in Bridgehampton themed around the animal kingdom that she cocurated with Kratz, the organization’s president. She says, “I’m so lucky that I keep David Kratz having different areas of creativity available to me; it’s always such a gift.” Nyaa.edu As to her future Brooke said “There’s much more to come.” This includes her new detective series Dearly Depotted on the Hallmark Channel. Art Southampton’s Nick Korniloff said, “We will also be presenting work from more than 70 international galleries.” art-southampton.com

Four hundred guests— including more judges than I could count, as well as Geraldo Rivera, Alan Dershowitz, State Senator Martin Golden, Lisa Evers and Shepard Smith—were treated to an uproarious ceremony that contained some unusual vows. Arthur pledged to hold Marianne’s “beauty and spa time sacrosanct,” and pledged “to do very little legal work during weekends in the Hamptons.” The next day Arthur cohosted a golf outing with Rudy Giuliani and Lawrence Taylor to benefit the Brooklyn Bar Association, of which he is their 100th president.

MICHAEL HAGGIAG

AVENUE’s back-page column asks New York notables our version of the questionnaire made famous by Marcel Proust

M

ichael Haggiag is a man of many artistic gifts: a writer and founder of Zen Gateway, an online Zen Buddhism magazine; a filmmaker; a visual artist; and a photographer. Haggiag is a pictorial wizard who draws his audience’s attention to everyday objects, exposing the interplay between representation and abstraction. This Columbia University graduate had two critically acclaimed solo exhibtions of his work in Italy in 2015 entitled CLOSE UP and CLOSE UP II and his show Close Encounters was on view at the Ca’d’Oro Gallery in New York past spring. This month you can find Haggiag’s work at Art Southampton opening July 7th at Nova’s Ark in Water Mills. In the meantime, the artist shares his Hamptons favorites and the key to a perfect beach read.

WHO IS YOUR FAVORITE DINNER COMPANION? Katharine Holabird, my wife and the author of the children’s classic Angelina Ballerina, and one of the best storytellers I know.

WHAT’S YOUR RELATIONSHIP TO THE HAMPTONS? My wife’s mother, a Second City actress Birdie Holabird, lived in Sag Harbor for many years and we spent many wonderful summers there when our children were growing up. WHAT’S YOUR FAVORITE THING TO DO IN THE HAMPTONS? Take pictures! The light in the Hamptons is very special. It’s a sandbar floating in the Atlantic and the sky often contains an extraordinary palate of colors that affects everything you see.

WHAT’S YOUR SIGNATURE DRINK? My sister-in-law, the painter Jean Holabird, used to call me the Tuborg beer boy. In the summer I like Campari and soda or a glass of rosé. WHAT ARTWORK REPRESENTS YOUR CURRENT STATE OF MIND? Anish Kapoor’s granite mirror sculpture of Zen Master Daiyo Myokyo in a private garden in London. Yellow Bench by Michael Haggiag Manhattan, N.Y. 2014

224 | AVENUE ON THE BEACH • JULY 2016

WHAT’S ON YOUR SUMMER PLAYLIST? A few old favorites: “Song of the Birds” by Pablo Casals; “Tea for the Tillerman” by Cat Stevens, Leonard Cohen, Wynton Marsalis, Eric Clapton, and most recently Concha Buika’s “Live Without Fear.” WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE PLACE IN THE HAMPTONS AND WHY? Our barn. It’s a reconstructed potato barn with a cathedral ceiling, old wooden beams and a huge fireplace where we entertain in the summer and keep warm the rest of the year. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE BEACH READ? Alexander Hamilton by Ron Chernow. It’s such a heavy tome that no beach towel will fly off in the wind!

WHO IS THE MOST INTERESTING NEW YORKER YOU KNOW? My filmmaker children Alexandra and Adam, who run Reframed Pictures with Susan Sarandon. WHAT IS YOUR FAVORITE WAY TO GET AROUND THE HAMPTONS? I love riding a bike along the beaches or through the back streets of Southampton and Sag Harbor, but I’m less keen on Route 27!

and the long summer light you get on the beaches in Bridgehampton. Perfect!

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO BE WHEN YOU GROW UP? Healthy and flexible. DESCRIBE A PERFECT SUMMER DAY. The centerpiece of my recent exhibition was a large abstract photomontage of a beach barrier baked into four aluminum panels. It always reminds me of a beautiful summer day by the sea, with its corrosive salt air

WHAT’S NEXT FOR YOU? I’ve begun to think about installations in 3D that would combine some of the textural and color values of my photography with sculptural forms. ✦
