THE 411 ON ONDA BEAUTY!

With co-founders Naomi Watts, Larissa Thompson and Sarah Bryden-Brown

How do you all know each other? Naomi: Sarah and I went to high school together in Sydney, and I’ve known Larissa in NYC for about 12 years. I introduced Sarah and Larissa about three years ago after realizing they would make a great match for the business Larissa wanted to create. I joined them as a co-founder about a year into their partnership and the three of us have become business partners underpinned by a deep friendship. What treatments are available? Larissa: We have a range of bespoke massages, facials, intuitive healers, and body work. What are the most popular products? Larissa: The ONDA Coffee Body Scrub. It’s created in upstate New York from wild ingredients and has a wonderful scent underpinned by vetiver and bergamot. Vintner’s Daughter is a cult serum we stock that includes 22 botanicals and took three years to create. Lord Jones Gumdrops are a big hit—they include 20 mg of CBD oil, helping to reduce anxiety and stress. Why did you decide to open in Sag Harbor and not East or South? Naomi: Sag Harbor has a spirit that resonates with all three of us. We wanted to be out there all year round, and Sag Harbor is the town that has an all-year-round presence, and has worked hard to maintain its history while growing with its community.

I sleep nine-to-10 hours a night and then have breakfast with my daughter out by the pool. Then I go to Tracy Anderson and stop at the Green Thumb and buy organic produce. I spend the afternoons swimming, playing tennis, reading, riding my bike, and catching up with friends. Late in the day, I like to go to the beach—with snacks!—and watch the sunset. In the evening, we either barbecue at home or go out to eat—fresh seafood and salads outdoors. I really disconnect in the Hamptons­; it’s a time of complete joy!

DE-STRESS dossier! How to begin the de-stressing process? Everything starts with what’s going on inside, so get enough sleep, drink tons of water, and eat a clean diet. Why is it so important to take a total break from the grind? It’s critical to break the stress cycle because it helps the body to reset. Stress is literally a hormonal response that affects the nervous system. When you take a break, it enables the brain to send a new signal to the body that it is not in fight-or-flight, and then it turns off the hormonal response and quiets the nerves. The body can then repair and rebalance. Even getting up from your desk, taking a five-minute walk, and regulating breathing can have a major impact on the daily grind. What is an average August day in the Hamptons like for you?

Executive Editor Ashley Baker

How will your Jet Lag Mask change our lives? Marianna: A great mask can give you gorgeous skin in just 10 minutes—when we say we don’t have time for elaborate skincare routines, we mean it. We wanted to create a product that had clean ingredients and super fast results because we’re all so busy! Your skin will feel hydrated and plump; you’ll notice the fine lines under your eyes look less noticeable and your skin feels dewy for a perfect makeup application. What products do you really rely on in the summer? Marianna: Supergoop’s Unseen Sunscreen. Lauren: Staying hydrated and protected are my two priorities. My summer routine includes Caudalie Micellar Cleansing Water, Dr. Jart+ Water Drop Moisturizer, and Jet Lag Mask. I use Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen and Invincible Setting Powder, and for a little extra glow, I use RMS Beauty Bronzer.

AKT’s Anna Kaiser, Kelly Sullivan, and Ryan Lingle

eady, set, shop! On Saturday, June 23rd, The Daily Summer and Carbon38 teamed up for an ultra-fun (and very chic) cocktail party at the brand’s Bridgehampton pop-up shop to celebrate La Plage, a crochet-heavy new collection from the groundbreaking e-tailer. Co-founder and CEO Katie Warner Johnson was on hand to welcome guests like AKT’s Anna Kaiser, Wölffer Estate’s Joey Wölffer, Art Production Fund’s Casey Fremont, GG Maull designer Gretchen Maull, and Sotheby’s Brooke Lampley, who perused the new collection while enjoying music from steel-drum band Next Level and libations from Out East Rosé, Toast Vodka, Splash Mixers, and Peroni. Fitness gurus and East End chicsters alike took a break for tree pose, while others enjoyed sweet treats from Sugarfina and mini lobster rolls and watermelon-feta skewers from Hampton Clambake, all of which was captured by the MotusRed 3-D photo booth.

IMG model and recent newlywed Emily DiDonato fills us in on how she got ready to walk down the aisle, where she met her man, hitting the books again, and more. by eddie roche

WOMAN

FA S H I O N W E E K D A I LY. C O M

You’re a newlywed—congrats! Thanks! We got married in Beaver Creek, because my husband [Kyle Peterson] and I met on a flight to Colorado, and we ski there every year. Wait—you met on a flight? I was flying to Vail, Colorado, to shoot the cover of Vogue Australia, and Kyle was flying for a work ski trip—we sat next to each other on the plane. Halfway through, we started talking and had a great conversation. I thought he was very cute. He’s also from upstate New York, and we lived one block away from each other, which was really weird. He knew my best friend. It was just a really funny turn of events. I could tell that he was a really good guy. We exchanged numbers, and got together a few weeks later in New York. We’ve pretty much been together ever since, which was about four and a half years ago. You’re a Sports Illustrated Swimsuit Issue regular. How do you stay in

swimsuit shape year-round? To be totally transparent, I’m not in perfect swimsuit shape all the time. The truth is, it takes effort, thought, and planning to be ready for something like Sports Illustrated. Staying like that all year round would be ideal, but it doesn’t happen! I’m human; I go up and down. But if I have a big shoot coming up, I’m really regimented. I’ll bring my own food to set, and make sure I work out in the morning. What’s your diet like? I’m technically a nutritionist, but they call it a health coach. I lean toward a Paleo diet: I’m not super strict, but typically, I have chicken or fish, and some sweet potato and grains. For carbs, I stick to things like sweet potatoes and squash. I don’t really do grains, rice, or bread. I also drink wine here and there. You signed with Maybelline New York in 2009. How’s that relationship? It’s collaborative, comfortable, and

gratifying. I feel like I’ve really grown up with the brand. People from Maybelline came to my wedding. They had to be there! I’ve known them since I was in high school; it’s crazy. Favorite Maybelline products? The Fit Me powder foundation, the Colossal mascara, the Brow Drama, and the SuperStay lipsticks. Do you get a kick out of seeing photos of yourself in the makeup aisle? I do, but it’s not about me; it’s fun to see the finished campaigns. I get more of a kick out of seeing commercials on TV. My parents love it! You also go to Columbia part-time! I started last fall, and I’m only taking two to three classes per semester. Right now, I’m exploring, getting through core classes, and taking classes that I find interesting— psychology, sociology, statistics, writing. It’s been the most challenging but by far the most gratifying thing I’ve done in the past couple of years.

GUTTER CREDITS tk

It’s not every day we interview a New York–bred model. Where’s your hometown? I’m from Beacon, New York, 50 miles north of Manhattan. It’s a small town, very cute, and not too far from NYC—my dad worked in the city as a firefighter—but I didn’t really grow up going into the city. Where do you spend your summer weekends? Last summer, we rented a house in Sag Harbor, and sometimes, we go upstate. This summer, I’ll be on my honeymoon, so we won’t be spending as much time out East. Eventually, I’d love to have a house out here. I just love how peaceful it is, and the serenity of being near the water. Are you still into camping? Definitely. I love being active in nature, whether it’s hiking, mountain biking, going for a walk in the woods, or playing in the grass. It’s necessary as an offset to living in Manhattan.

Dr. Barbara Sturm Face Cream, Face Mask, and Hyaluronic serum I’m addicted to Dr. Strum’s products. They leave my skin feeling clean, hydrated, and are completely fragrancefree, which my sensitive skin really appreciates!

Chantecaille BÉbÉ Camellia and Lavender Balm It’s the perfect healing cureall. I use it on everyone in my family. It’s vegan, COSMOS-certified, and has unlimited uses—from smoothing chapped lips and dry patches to soothing sunburns!

Tenoverten NonAcetone Polish Remover and Hand Cleanser Cloths I’m always on my way to a meeting when I realize my manicure looks crazy, so I have these in my bag. They leave your nails feeling moisturized and nourished, and they don’t have that harsh chemical smell!

Agent Nateur Holi (Rose) Deodorant I never thought I would find a natural deodorant that actually works. I was shocked when this one did. I’ve happily switched, and at this point I am completely freaked out by the endocrinedisrupting deodorant I used for so many years.

gaia organics Oil of Oregano I am in an ongoing battle against the germs my kids bring home from school. I add a few drops of Oil of Oregano to a shot of green juice each morning as an attempt to stay healthy.

African Botanics Kalahar Desert De-Tox Bath Salts These relax my sore muscles and remineralize my body after tennis and riding with my daughter.

True Botanicals Nourishing Wash (Fresh) By far the best body wash I’ve used. Leaves you feeling fresh—no residue, and while the scent is totally divine, it is completely free of synthetic fragrance!

Laura Mercier Flawless Contouring Kit This palette has the perfect combination of colors; super rich and natural, and it’s really easy to use—pretty much contouring for dummies.

RationalE Superfluid Sunscreen It’s super light and perfect for skin protection, especially when you get to my age—25, ha ha! It’s full of vitamins B, C, and E—and all these great antioxidants.

NuFace I do this treatment three times a week; it’s like a workout for your face. It’s an amazing and noninvasive way to look after your skin.

Baja Bae This is the best tinted moisturizer I’ve ever used. It’s got this perfect bronze color, which hydrates the skin at the same time.

Annelise PETERSON Winter

DR. MACRENE 37 extreme actives anti-aging cream I’ve been using this for 10 years now. It’s the foundation of my skincare routine and nontoxic, from the packaging to the product itself.

Ellis Brooklyn’s Rrose eau de parfum I love this perfume. Dare I say it’s my scent! It’s also paraben-free, phthalates-free, and vegan.

ClÉ de Peau Beauté Le fond de teint in O20 It’s like cashmere on your skin with built-in SPF and antiaging agents.

Green Mountain CBD Cannabidiol oil has been shown to be an antiinflammatory, and it fights cancer and reduces stress.

BeautyCounter CleanSing Balm I recently did an event for GG Maull in L.A. with Beautycounter and am now obsessed with their Cleansing Balm. After the long winter in the city and my coffee addiction, even my cleanser needs to be hydrating. This one is rich in vitamin C and raspberry oils!

Trish McEvoy Beauty Balm instant solutions SPF 35 I found this at the Trish McEvoy store in Bridgehampton. GG Maull had an event and I left all my makeup in the city! It is now part of my daily routine. The color really evens out my skin, which tends to be on the red side in summer.

A.G.E. Eye Complex As a business owner who doesn’t get nearly enough sleep, I started noticing darker circles under my eyes. This cream actually makes that darker color disappear! It is a miracle worker.

SuperGoop Everyday Face Sunscreen SPF 50 I love how light this is, and I can put it on alone or under makeup for extra protection. This one even helps with wrinkle prevention! For people with light hair, I recommend putting it even above their hairline.

Soleil Noir Suntan Spray SPF 50 This is my favorite body suntan spray. I first found it in St. Tropez. It gives you a little bronzing effect and has oils that hydrate your skin. Still not sure if you can buy it in the States, so be sure to pick up a bottle when you’re in Europe!

What’s the longest color process you’ve ever done—how many hours and sessions? Three days for four hours per day. It was for Jennifer Lawrence when I had to get her back to blonde for American Hustle. Four weeks prior to that appointment, we had taken her blonde—this was right before she won her Oscar.

we took her very dark for Hunger Games and two weeks later she had to go light again for American Hustle—so it was crucial that we let her hair rest during the process. How did you get involved with Moroccanoil? I teamed up with Moroccanoil to launch their incredible new Color Complete Collection. My clients undergo so many hair transformations, whether for different film roles or events, so maintaining the health of their hair is priority. I was so excited to work with Moroccanoil because their products contain such high-quality ingredients! Their proprietary argan oil–infused formulations are unique in that they instantly transform hair, so it looks shiny, healthy, and beautiful, and also improve the condition of hair so it becomes even healthier over time. What’s the concept behind the Moroccanoil Color Complete line? Because compromised hair color is unavoidable, caring for color must be part of your lifestyle. Moroccanoil Color Complete Collection takes a holistic approach to color care, targeting the full scope of color loss by addressing all daily sources of color degradation. As a stylist, I’m happy to finally see a collection that answers the need for a hair-care regimen to protect, maintain, and sustain color. How does its formulation help to retain color? Moroccanoil Color Complete Collection uses the power of two proprietary technologies—ArganID™ and COLORLINK™—to help nourish, repair, and seal hair for optimal color retention. ArganID™ harnesses the power of ionic attraction and infuses argan oil deep into the cortex, helping to repair and seal the hair, while COLORLINK™ helps rebuild damaged keratin structure to trap color within and minimize color washout. What are your favorite products in the line, and why do you like them? I love the whole line, but I have to say my must-have is Moroccanoil Protect & Prevent Spray. People are often unaware of the environmental effects on hair, especially colored hair. Oxidation—a reaction that affects hair color pigment when hair is exposed to UV rays—can cause hair color to lose vibrancy and appear brassy. Using Moroccanoil Protect & Prevent Spray as a daily leave-in conditioner will help protect hair from oxidation by absorbing damaging UV rays, preventing color fade and brassiness.

What are some of your favorite color trends? Red and strawberry blonde! Also mauves and pinks with a rose-gold hue. Whose hair do you want to get your hands on now? A little hand-painted sunshine for Meghan Markle, aka the Duchess of Sussex, would be a highlight! Has social media helped you expand your clientele? If so, how? Absolutely! Social media plays a huge part in my day-to-day as people constantly reference pictures to show what they want. I also gain many new clients who either find my Instagram or follow one of my celebrity clients on Instagram and they reach out to me for appointments. What’s your daily hair routine like? Moroccanoil Protect & Prevent Spray should be part of everyone’s daily routine because it not only helps protect hair from environmental damage, but it also acts as a leave-in conditioner to nourish, repair, and detangle. Moroccanoil Treatment is also one my must-haves! I love that it’s so versatile and I can use it as a conditioning, styling, and finishing tool. How often do you change your hair color, cut, and style? I recently went from paler blonde to strawberry. I kind of edit my look with certain lengths and lighter and darker hues, but I don’t tend to do drastic changes.

FEARLESSLeader

You live in L. A. Do you have the longest weekend commute to the Hamptons ever? Ha! I am on a red-eye Thursday night almost every weekend. I land at 6 a.m., am out there by 8:30, sleep a couple of hours, and by 11 a.m. I am ready to go to the store. There’s such a high from being there. Until now, I’ve always had a screen between me and my customer. In the store, you see the whole retail process from start to finish, and in that surprise and delight moment, you understand how people feel in the clothes. It’s truly addicting. I am overcome with how generous our customers are with their feedback. Where do you stay when you’re out East? Our sales staff in the store are all local— they’re unbelievable women. But we have a house that my team and I stay FA S H I O N W E E K D A I LY. C O M

in whenever we come out for events. It’s like summer camp. We have double washers and dryers—very important for a summer house. You launched seven years ago—you were way ahead of the curve on athleisure. Is there a sense of pressure that comes with being early? I love pressure because it forces you to be at your best. We launch upward of 600 styles a month, and we work with more than 200 vendors. We can’t believe in our own myth—we don’t have time to do that! We have to keep moving. The word “athleisure” is limiting. Here’s what I think: Men’s shirts are buttoned in the opposite direction of women’s shirts. Dresses zip in the back. Women’s clothing is designed for other people

to dress us. Men’s clothing is designed for them to dress themselves. These ideas are left over from the turn of the century. It’s the reason why when J.Crew put pockets in a dress, we all, like, fell down. Our wardrobe hasn’t risen to the occasion except in active. It feels simple to put on a pair of leggings, but it’s so powerful because there’s freedom in that decision. There’s freedom in not having to button a pair of jeans around our bellies after a meal. There’s so much power in being able to slip something on that makes you feel sexy and supported, and you can throw it in the machine if you drop something on it because you’re running about your day. Athleisure is no longer this joke of like, “I’m wearing my workout clothes to brunch.” It’s like,

“Damn straight, I’m wearing my leggings and they look amazing.” I haven’t bought a pair of jeans in years! It’s a good moment to be a strong, feminist brand. As women, the demands on us are unprecedented. There’s this immense pressure to even out the odds, against all odds. We are also charged with raising the next generation of leaders. Women are still the ones who get the call from the school nurse. And, because of social media, we all have this pressure to look like Gisele [Bündchen]. I know this woman. I’ve served her for 10 years, and now I’m becoming her. I never set out to create a brand that’s just reaching in to someone’s wallet. I really am trying to keep a human approach.

There are pop-ups…and then there’s the Montalba-designed, rosé-out-back Carbon38 pop-up in Bridgehampton, which cofounder and CEO Katie Warner Johnson is using as a genius testing ground for her runaway hit e-commerce destination. Meet the maverick behind the brand of the moment!


we’re in a moment right now that needs more female voices. it’s up to the private sector to shape the world that we want to live in.

co u rt e sy

How do you feel about personally being the face—and the body, too—of Carbon38? I don’t want the brand relevance to ever be attached to my own, because you become old news quickly. [Laughs] But I do think that we’re in a moment right now that needs more female voices. It’s up to the private sector to shape the world that we want to live in. I’m trying to be the best leader I can be. Ninety percent of our team is female. I can provide snacks and kombucha, but [good leadership] is about more than that. It’s about helping today’s young women become the leaders of tomorrow. What’s the story behind Carbon38’s relationship with Foot Locker? They invested $15 million in Carbon38 earlier this year. We found an amazing partner in Foot Locker. Lauren Peters, the executive vice president and CFO, sits on our board. She’s so generous with her time, even as she runs an $8-billion business. They’re so human, so smart, and they have so much data that helps with decision-making. I’m so grateful, because there’s just so much to learn. You’ve talked about the fact that only 3 percent of female-led start-ups successfully secure funding. How do you know that number and go into those meetings? I don’t stop at no. This business is my Hail Mary, in all honesty. When I started it, I didn’t have career opportunities. I was an injured ex-dancer/fitness instructor. My finance days were further and further in the rearview mirror. When you’re pushed to the wall like that, there’s no other option but success. There’s so many stories about you that describe you as something like “Ballerina Turned Business Mogul.” But those two things aren’t opposites—both are strong. I know, they love the ballerina thing! If there’s any period of my life where I learned more, it was ballet. When I was 15, I was cast in a piece by the choreographer Eric Hampton who was dying of ALS. It was literally a race against time to get his choreography out of him as he spelled out his instructions to us with his eyes. We would rehearse in our socks in the cafeteria of his hospice. I realized that being an artist had nothing to do with me—I was the visual representation and the vessel for the larger message. I think becoming an entrepreneur is similar.

Do you feel like an artist now doing what you do? Absolutely. I dance in my kitchen and I sing in the shower, but in terms of building something bigger than myself, channeling a larger message, listening with desperation to what’s coming next…I’m selling leggings, I’m not saving the world here, but I think in everything we do, there is a much larger purpose. And the customer feels that. Why did you choose to pop up in Bridgehampton? I chose Bridge quite product, perfected honestly because it was Katie Warner Johnson at work. the Hamptons I knew the best.

SIMPLY At only three years old, Rachel Blumenthal’s kidclothing-box-delivery start-up, Rockets of Awesome, is thoughtful, precocious, and stylish as can be—with infinite cherries on top! She shares the Hamptons family life behind the idea…and her plans to grow as quickly as kids do in the summer. By Ashley Baker photography by william jess laird FA S H I O N W E E K D A I LY. C O M

What was the concept for Rockets of Awesome? Where did you come up with this great idea? My kids are 3 and 7. I realized as a new mom that they outgrew their clothes so frequently. It’s not like you and I, wanting a new pair of jeans or jacket each season; it’s like the entire contents of the dresser need replacing. I was always the parent who would go into the store in June needing bathing suits, and they had winter jackets. I just saw that there was this massive opportunity to be able to do this work for mom. There are all these life hacks that make us look like supermoms from the outside and help get it all done: FreshDirect, or Lola, or

Postmates. The idea is to put the right products in customers’ homes before they realize they need them, before the shirts are crop tops and before the pants are three inches too short. And we’ve leveraged data science to really get to know our customers—both the parents and the kids—and deliver something that’s spot-on. How do you keep both groups of customers happy at the same time? As parents, we want our kids to look somewhat put together because it’s a representation of who we are. But kids want to feel like they’re in control. We wanted everyone to feel like they were winning. The way it works is that you

sign on to the site, you tell us everything your kids like and don’t like, and what you like and don’t like. With that information, we put together a box of clothes at the beginning of the season that has eight items inside, and you only pay for what you keep. We send a box four times a year. The beauty of the model is that we send parents a preview [e-mail] before we put it in the mail, so you can swap things out. When the box arrives, the kids are so freaking excited—they just rip it open and start having fashion shows. If you keep everything, you get about a 30-percent savings; it’s $150 for eight items. We also have an e-commerce site, so once you’re a member, you can shop à la carte, too.

What categories are you in? We do a full activewear assortment, so kids performance wear—everything from tutus to athleisure to swim. We do light outerwear. Really, our customers fall in love with the soft fabrics, the unique styles, and the extra details that are inspired by kids, like flip sequins or double-reinforced knees. Kids are so weird and fun, and they have this magical unpredictable confidence, and that’s what the brand is about. Tell us about your branding and the visual identity of Rockets of Awesome. I always say that our mission is to simplify and celebrate real life with kids. We want to deliver solutions to parents. But we also want to give them the permission to enjoy real life with kids… those moments when they’re pouring sprinkles onto ice cream and the cap falls off and the entire jar pours out. You can either scream at them or pick up the spoon, and we’re like, “Pick up the spoon!” Everything for us is shinier, and more glittery, and oversize, and overthe-top awesome. We take it to the nth degree. The silver Mylar balloon is our spirit animal. What’s some of the best feedback you’ve gotten from your own kids? When I brought a box home, my son opened it and basically said, “Oh, my God, this is the softest thing I’ve ever touched.” That was such a win. My daughter opts for anything that twirls. I came home the other day and she was wearing this bananas outfit. A dress with stripes on top, a tutu with cherries on it, and rainbow leggings underneath. She looked crazy, but I was actually like, “That’s kind of cool.” The reason it works is because all the elements had a polished aesthetic. We make sure that color palettes every season can work with outfits from previous seasons, so you can’t make a bad outfit. I looked at it and I was like, “You look crazy, but it’s also cute.” That was representative of a great taste level of what created the product, in partnership with a real kid who has a real vision for what she wants to look like. Your company has grown really quickly. Tell us a little bit about the size of your team and your operation and how you make all this happen. We’re a team of 50. We have customers in every single state and are growing naturally aligned with the populations of those states. More than anything, we’re focused on how to continue to build a business that is sustainable economically while delivering an overthe-top amazing experience to our customers. The data science really does drive everything that we do. It’s the perfect combo of art and science. That reliability of the fit, comfort, style, and price point is really important. So we leverage so much feedback from our customers to drive what we do every single day.

I JUST WANT [KIDS] to be confident because i think confidence leads to happiness.

Give us the 411 on your life in the Hamptons. We have been in East Hampton for eight years. We just bought a new house there this summer. We would never move out of the city. It’s such incredible culture to expose your kids to. But at the same time, I’ve never appreciated the Hamptons more than having kids and seeing them run on the lawn and play tennis and be at the beach and just be outside. We just got paddleboards. The kids are usually swimming in the pool by 8 a.m. And I keep buying more blow-up things.… My husband [Neil Blumenthal, co-founder and co-CEO of Warby Parker] and I like to work out on the weekends, so he has a regular basketball game and a tennis match. On Saturdays, I do an old lady walk on the beach with my girlfriends, and we’re like, “You’re sweating, right?” We try to convince one another we’re not grandmas, but we so are. On Sundays, I do SLT in East Hampton, and then I usually stop at Red Horse Market and pick up food. We have a circle of friends who are out there, all kind of in the same vicinity, so we very much have an open-door policy. At night, the adults go out and the kids go to sleep. Do you spend most of the summer out there or is it mostly weekends? We’re back and forth. We’ve kind of figured out the drill. We leave Friday night around 7:30 p.m. We don’t hit traffic, the kids fall asleep in the car, and we can get out there in two hours. My kids don’t know that the iPad works in the car. They’ll say, “But it works in so-and-so’s car,” and I’m like, “Not ours. We don’t have Wi-Fi.” The car is sleep time, and my husband and I get to hang out and catch up. Then on Sundays, we leave around 8 at night, so we get two full days. I never liked leaving in the afternoon—all day you’re stressing and thinking about when you’re going to leave. There’s something really peaceful about driving. Where do you guys like to eat and shop? Last summer, we loved going to EMP Summer House at 5 p.m., when you can actually get in with the kids, and have dinner out in the back. My kids always beg to go to Bostwick’s or Serafina. We’ll go to [Nick & Toni’s] once in a while. Oh, and Bay Burger—that Joe & Liza’s ice cream! I will choose Bay Burger over anything else. Last weekend, I took my daughter to Sag Harbor because we wanted to see the Goop store. [Rockets of Awesome] did really well there last summer. We were just in their store in

Dallas, and now we’re in the store in Sag Harbor. It’s fun to see your stuff at retail. We went to LoveShackFancy last weekend. It’s so beautiful. [Founder Rebecca Hessel Cohen] creates this world. She has done such an incredible job. You feel like you’re in her photographs. It’s very ethereal and so girly. Are you thinking about moving into retail? We are. As we think about creating retail experiences, we can’t wait to bring this brand to life because it’s so celebratory. I’ve always envisioned retail for us being Charlie and the Chocolate Factory meets the American Girl store, but in a chicer, cooler way. In New York City? Maybe. When we start, I’ll want to be there every single day to learn and see how the customers are engaging with us. We’re looking at some other cities across the country, too, where we tend to have strong population density. About 80 percent of our moms are mobile, so we always design and build for mobile first. But I love the idea of being able to create this really cool kids’ club. Maybe we do ice cream sundaes on Tuesdays, where it’s an endless cherries-on-top kind of thing. So you can pick up a couple of things or see how something fits while the kids are distracted. I think we’ll either test something this year or in early 2019. We’re really excited. When I go to the playground with my children, I see a thousand kids wearing your awesome shirts. What is it like for you to take your kids to the park and have that same experience? I totally fangirl out on the kids, and I try to not be really creepy. I’ll usually go up to the parent and be like, “Oh, my company makes those clothes. How did you hear about us?” To see your product out in the wild and to see how kids style it is really exciting because for us, at the end of the day, it’s just about those kids. I just want them to be confident because I think confidence leads to happiness. We had this amazing testimonial from a 10-year-old girl from Dallas. She wrote in about how she was bullied and she started wearing Rockets of Awesome and now her clothes aren’t dumb. The girl who was the lead bully then got Rockets of Awesome, too, and now they’re friends. It’s so simple—give them something that makes them proud. That doesn’t mean that it has to be fancy or it has to be sparkly. What makes them feel good in their skin and lets them just be a kid? That’s the core spirit of what we’re doing here.

fortune Has it really been five years since Martone Cycling Co. rode onto the scene? To celebrate, founder Lorenzo Martone has partnered with Peroni on a limited-edition bike—which naturally includes a basket that will make beer runs a total snap. BY EDDIE ROCHE PHOTOGRAPHY BY HANNAH TURNER-HARTS

You’re a fashion publicist by trade. How did you get into the bike business? It started as a personal challenge—is it possible to make a beautiful bike that could live openly in my apartment? I took a few trips to Asia for meetings and started telling people about my idea. I found a passionate factory, and we made five bikes, which was very impulsive—I didn’t even have a business at the time. They eventually arrived in my onebedroom apartment and I was like, “What am I going to do with these?” How did you turn it into a business? I was in Paris for a Valentino show and Anna Wintour was there. She was early,

too, so I went up to her and asked to show her something. She said, “Yes!” I told her my idea and showed her the photos, and she said she really liked them. She asked me to send them to Vogue so they could shoot them. Back in New York, I spoke to [fashion news director] Mark Holgate, who wanted to feature them in the April issue. So I found investors, and produced my first run of 700 bikes. And then I found a business partner who decided to open a Martone Cycling Co. office in Paris! Did appearing in Vogue give the business a big boost? Definitely. We shot the story on the West


When you ride one of my bikes or take a sip of peroni, you take a little break from reality, and go somewhere else.

Side Highway in Manhattan with a full production team. There were models, stylists, hair, and makeup…all for one photo. I then went for a bike ride with a journalist and we talked about how a product that was created 100 years ago seemed to be the solution for so many of the current problems of big cities, such as traffic and sustainability. Riding bikes is also pro-health, of course! How did you launch? We launched the company with five colors for our core collection of white, red, and black. The special-edition bikes were gold and silver, inspired by jewelry. We were mimicking the basics of fashion! Now you’ve grown into more than just bikes! Turning five years old is a great milestone for us, because we’ve added so much to the mix. We’ve launched helmets, locks, sunglasses, activewear… and this summer, we have a new collaboration with Peroni. How did that come about? I met [Peroni brand developer] Sebastiano Magnano doing the AIDS/ LifeCycle Ride from San Francisco to Los Angeles a few years ago. During the ride, there was no way to wash our uniforms, so each member needed six different ones because we got pretty sweaty. We had a few dozen made for the team, and Sebastiano helped me design and produce them. He joined Peroni a year later and told his team about my bikes. We share the same values of quality and craftsmanship. We were originally going to produce the bikes as gifts for their best clients, but then we got really excited and came up with all these other ideas. Before we knew it, 12 units became 1,000 units. What inspired Peroni to get involved in the cycling world? It was the idea of creating a lifestyle. When you ride one of my bikes or take a sip of Peroni, you take a little break from reality, and go somewhere else. What was the design process like? Peroni was very involved; we spent almost a year finalizing the design, the frame, the accents, the campaign, and the communication. The idea was to create a bike that combined our DNA. The result is super fun and joyful. I can’t wait to see people riding them! How much are they? There are only 12 units for sale out of the 1,000 we made. There are different ways of getting them, but they cost $895—you can buy them on martonecycling.com.

fashion and function Martone takes a spin through East Hampton.

Do you think this is the beginning of a long-term relationship with Peroni? Hopefully this one will do well enough and we can take it international. Martone has an office in Paris, so it would be fun to run a similar program in Europe. The U.S. is a good case study! Where do you see your brand going? Surviving for five years means hopefully we’re here to stay. We’re launching a MCC app, which will have not only content, but will also be a platform for users to create their own ride in their respective cities and connect with locals who share their passion for biking. It’s basically a Tinder for biking. People will connect via the app and then meet in person. Maybe we can spark some love stories out of it. It would be the perfect cherry on the cake.

on their Platinum Card. That’s up to $50 in statement credits January through June, and up to another $50 July through December. You can enroll at americanexpress.com/platinum. Conveniently, the program starts just in time for full-swing summer shopping. What’s on your beach shopping list right now? To be honest, summer sort of snuck up on me, so I could use new swim trunks and some polos. Now that I think of it, a new pair of sneakers sounds good, too. There are times out East, when we’ll hop on our bike with nothing but our Platinum Card and phone, seriously. Do you find that Hamptons-goers are especially AmEx loyal? I love that! The Hamptons continue to be a frequent travel destination for our premium Card Members, and we have a

lot of great activities planned for them this summer. At the U.S. Open Golf, we had the first-ever Card Member Club and perks like binoculars. And for the second consecutive year, we have collaborated with Eleven Madison Park to bring EMP Summer House back to East Hampton this summer. And there’s lots more planned, so stay tuned! What’s the last thing you bought with your Platinum Card? I actually took an Uber this morning! The Uber Rides with Platinum benefit gives me automatic VIP status and $200 Uber credits a year. As a New Yorker, whose personal and professional life is deeply intertwined, I rely on Uber to help me navigate to work, the gym, dinner with friends, and even date night. This is just one Platinum benefit that makes me feel like Amex has my back.

Are you a Saks shopper yourself ? Yes. I remember, when I was a little boy, my Mom would take me and my younger brother to Radio City and Rockefeller Center every holiday season. In between lunch and seeing the tree, we would always make a stop at Saks to “pick something up.” I remember being mesmerized by the amazing Saks holiday windows and the hustle and bustle of the shopping season. Now that I have my own kids, we are keeping the tradition alive. What’s the most recent thing you bought there? For my wife’s birthday, I got her a pair of Christian Louboutin pumps and La Mer facial cream. I’m not ashamed to say that I’m one of those people who can’t resist buying something for myself when I’m shopping for others, so there may have also been a Montblanc belt added to that purchase.

First, what inspired the Shop Saks with Platinum program? Last year, we saw a great response to the many Card Member benefits we added to the Platinum Card offering best-in-class service across varying passion points, including fashion. We are continuing that momentum. Why partner with Saks specifically? Saks is a top luxury retailer of choice for our Card Members; they’ve been an American Express Membership Rewards partner for more than 20 years. Plus, Saks Fifth Avenue shares our vision of offering customers access, value, experiences, and service. Tell us how it all works! Starting July 1, 2018, enrolled Platinum Card Members have been able to get up to $100 in statement credits annually (up to $50 available semiannually) for purchases made at Saks Fifth Avenue

Flaviana Matata

That word “experience” seems to be so key for retail right now. Absolutely. The Saks customer expects much more than just a transaction when she’s shopping— and she expects Saks to be the arbiter for what’s important and what’s new. Saks recently partnered with Bumble to create an exciting speaker series in a branded “Bumble hive” in our New York flagship. We’ve also renovated our beauty floor on 2, creating a one-of-a-kind destination focused on beauty and wellness experiences, including interesting talks with fitness founders, noted doctors, and more. What’s the last thing you bought with your AmEx? A reservation at EMP Summer House in East Hampton for next month.

overdo skin care treatments with babies, you can cause eczema and allergies that they can suffer from for life. I just wanted to make sure that my daughter Pepper’s skin would be touched by only the most natural and nourishing ingredients, and I wound up developing a group of skin care formulations for a single patient— Pepper. I didn’t think initially about creating a line; I just wanted something I could trust on her skin. When Pepper turned 3, I decided to do this super cute line. It’s a healthy, happy line for kids, and we keep getting wonderful feedback. Any plans to hit the Hamptons? Yes! We will be in the Hamptons and doing a pop-up during the second half of August—stay tuned for details. Where do you live these days? We have a flat in Düsseldorf and a house in Washington, D.C.; my husband and I really don’t live anywhere. We’ve been on a business trip for the past five years! What are the key components of your personal approach to wellness? Personal approaches to wellness are aspirational, in that healthy living and modern living are often at odds. Generally, I try to minimize stress because the cortisol it stimulates is a destructive force in our bodies. I believe in this rule for work: It’s not stressful if it’s fun. I try to get a good night’s sleep,

and I do this by going to bed early. I drink water and almost nothing else. I exercise as often as I can, even if it’s for 15 minutes. I adhere to an antiinflammatory diet—high in blueberries, salmon, and leafy green vegetables—and avoid fried food, sugar, processed flour, and cured meats. I like a lychee martini or a nice glass of Chardonnay, but I don’t drink too much or too regularly. No matter what geography I’m in, I take my own supplements every day—one each of Skin Food, Anti-Pollution Food, and Repair Food.

sunshine BY EDDIE ROCHE PHOTOGRAPHY BY WILLIAM JESS LAIRD Yay! New products! Tell us what you’ve recently rolled out. There’s a candle, a room diffuser, a shower gel, a body lotion, and a room spray—all with our signature privet bloom scent. I’m so excited, because the Hamptons community has been asking for a privet bloom home scent for years. It was just time. It’s a natural progression for us to go in this direction and expand—it’s really an extension of who we are as a brand. We’ve always been positioned as a lifestyle brand, and this is part of it. What are some of the new offerings? Tell us more about the scent. It’s the privet hedge that surrounds many Hamptons homes. The blossom appears on the products’ boxes. It blooms in late June and early July for about two or three weeks, and it’s intoxicating. It’s such a memorable scent. Once you get a burst of it, it sticks in your memory. It’s elegant, FA S H I O N W E E K D A I LY. C O M

fresh, clean, and sophisticated. The Privet Bloom scent encompasses the essence of nature’s beauty and transcends the seasons with touches of white hyacinth, lily of the valley, and jasmine. It’s the perfect fragrance for all year round. How has the company evolved over the years? The first product we launched was sunscreen. Michael Kors was one of our earliest supporters. There were nine SKUs initially, including self-tanner, moisturizer, and bronzer. In 2008, we came out with our first perfume, Privet Bloom. It made The New York Times and Oprah’s list; W called it one of the top-10 fragrances of all time, right next to Chanel. It was a huge hit, and the response from consumers was overwhelming. People said we should do a candle and a room spray. What differentiates your products? Our formulas are thoroughly thought-

out. It’s not just about the ingredients, but the way you combine them and the percentages that you use. We’re one of the first companies to offer products with the ingredient Polycrylene, which advances sunscreen’s performance and helps maintain maximum UVA and UVB protection. We work closely with a world-renowned chemist to ensure that we use only the finest ingredients, most advanced protection, silkiest textures, and our signature scent. Also, we are endorsed by dermatologist Dr. Lance Brown, who is also a professor at NYU. We believe that we have something to offer every sunbather. You once told us that you don’t sell at mass pharmacies because Hampton Sun is a luxury brand. Are you still sticking with that plan? Because of how we’ve positioned the brand, we’re pretty solid in the luxury space. To go outside of it…it’s just not who we are as a brand. We try to stay in

that lane in the luxury space. Where can we find the products out East? White’s Apothecary in East Hampton and Southampton; Bluemercury in East Hampton and Southampton; Sag Harbor Pharmacy; Hildreth’s in Southampton; and Gurney’s in Montauk. How do you feel when you see the products in stores? It’s exciting! For me, it’s like giving back to the community. It’s a good feeling knowing that I’m doing something good that protects people. I want to get the message out there that sun protection needs to be a part of your daily regimen. It’s not like in the past, where you’d use it just when you went to the beach. You should be wearing it every day, and you should use a moisturizer with an SPF. We need to be protected and use sunscreen that offers broadspectrum coverage.

Salvatore Piazzolla, founder of Hampton Sun (and nicest guy around), has heard your call! The Southampton resident has launched a range of new products to keep the summer spirit alive all year round. He sat down with The Daily Summer to discuss.

beauty?

“A friend convinced me to start shaving my face. I’ve been doing it for a little over a month now, and I don’t get as many blackheads. I swear by it now. No shaving cream— you just use a milky face wash.” —Josephine Skriver

“One time, I didn’t know how to tweeze my eyebrows, so I tried to thin them out with my brother’s razor. I went to school the next day with no eyebrows at all. Little did I know that it would be a trend now to have no eyebrows. I was ahead of my time!” —Gigi Gorgeous

“I’ve had a facial where they take your blood and put it into a cream. My skin was glowing!” —Martha Hunt

“I bleached my eyebrows a few times. They were not happy; it broke them a little bit. But it’s okay—they grew back very fast.” —Sara Sampaio

The Delectable Tale of

NICK & TONI’S

What began as a tiny spot in East Hampton in 1988 has become an international destination and a pioneer in the country’s farm-to-table movement. On the occasion of Nick & Toni’s 30th anniversary, let’s see how it all happened! By Ashley Baker

SALAD DAYS

(From left) Jeff Hooper bringing

birth of an east end icon Nick & Toni’s was originally the brainchild of husband-and-wife team Toni Ross and Jeffrey Salaway, and soon after its opening, they took on a new partner in Mark Smith. Ross and Smith reminisce on the Vin Santo, zucchini chips, and much more!

Toni, take us back to August 3, 1988— the opening night of Nick & Toni’s. TONI ROSS: Jeff and I figured that it was the beginning and the end, all in one night. We never announced we were actually opening because it was August, and we thought the fewer customers, the better. The first person in the door was Craig Claiborne, who was the retired New York Times food critic—an extraordinary man. He showed himself to his own table because he used to like that table when it was the previous restaurant. He was so wonderful, and he kept coming back FA S H I O N W E E K D A I LY. C O M

with friends and giving us really helpful critiques—not just about food, but about service and all kinds of things. What did you serve? Ross: Beet ravioli, quail with cherries and Vin Santo, Caesar salad, the chicken, the penne—all are still on the menu—and the zucchini chips. If we took those off? Major mutiny. We also had calf’s liver and onions. I can’t remember if we had risotto. MARK SMITH: I think there was a risotto. It seems like there’s always been a risotto.

Ross: We didn’t have tiramisu because I was really bad at making it. It’s just this weird thing. I’m a decent pastry person, but I like really simple things, but somehow tiramisu had eluded me. We had a flourless chocolate cake that was incredibly good, and lots of fruit. And a center table with grappa and biscotti, and Vin Santo, until we realized people would walk by and stick some in their bag. What was your concept for the restaurant? Ross: Jeff [Salaway] and I met in Italy. We spent quite a bit of time there, and we discovered a lot of Italian food that wasn’t being served in the United States—things like beet ravioli with poppy-seed sauce or tagliatelle with lemon, olive oil with bread. We wanted to present that, but what it really meant was that we loved Italy, and we wanted to serve food that was meaningful, fresh, and really direct and simple. That has never changed. We’ve morphed away from being strictly Italian,

because neither of us is actually Italian. It was more important to have really fresh, clean foods. Jeff was also dedicated to the locavore movement—although it didn’t have a name then—and developing relationships with local farmers and fishermen. For how long did you make the pastries? Ross: For about three years, until I stopped working here when I was pregnant with my daughter because my back was really bad. I had always planned on getting back to my artwork. When I was pregnant, I was repulsed by the smell of sugar, so it made baking very challenging. My favorite thing to eat was plain yogurt. I was like, “Here, Jeff, have some of this—it’s so delicious!” He said, ”I’m good!” [Laughs] Mark, how did you get involved? Smith: My family bought a place in Montauk about 40 years ago. I always loved it out here, and through a series of life circumstances, I started my career in

the hosiery business. We eventually sold the company. I had always wanted to live out here, I said, “If not now, then when?” I thought I wanted to be a chef, so I went to Peter Kump’s Cooking School, and realized I was probably a little old to jump behind the lines. Having had years of experience in running businesses, I decided I was better suited for front of the house. I started working at a friend’s restaurant in the city, and while I was there, I met somebody who was friendly with Jeff [Salaway], aka Nick from Nick and Toni’s. I got an interview. A typical Jeff-fashion interview was, “Yeah, if you want to get involved in this business, no problem.” So I started here as an assistant manager twentysomething years ago. I told him from the beginning that my goal was to own my own place. We struck up a friendship and a business relationship. Jeff was the consummate host—big ideas, great concepts, and great food. I was used to running a business. He hated running the business. It was a really good partnership. When a space became available, we’d been working together for about six months, Jeff said, “Listen, how do you feel about doing something together?” I was like, “Great!” FA S H I O N W E E K D A I LY. C O M

We did Rowdy Hall, and became partners in everything. Ross: There’s still a “family feeling“ here about the ways that it’s run. It always felt like a high-end mom-and-pop place, because we were here 24/7. Many of the people who began working for us, like Bonnie [Cashin], Joe [Realmuto], and Mark, have been here almost its whole history. Nick & Toni’s is known for its lengthy relationships with East End farmers and fishermen. Smith: Amber Waves, Braun Seafood, Stewart’s, Gosman’s, Scott Chaskey at Quail Hill Farms…Scott was a big influence and helped us start our own garden. He’s such a generous soul. Ross: I had met Scott years before at the invitation of Elaine de Kooning, who was mentoring me and my artwork. She was an incredible portraitist. I had the opportunity to be next to her while she was making portraits, and Scott was somebody that she painted quite often. It was like I was in my own private graduate school. Scott was a poet, and he and Megan had been living in Scotland to farm, and then moved back here. They’re pioneering types. The community was

obviously based on farming and fishing all the way back, but, through the series of economic changes, people sold their land, stopped farming. Scott was really the one, in my memory, who sort of brought people back to the roots of the community in terms of farming. I think he’s the impetus for everything that’s going on here today. According to a 2013 New York Times story, Bonnie was slated to retire. Ross: Her idea of retiring was cutting back! She still works Fridays and Saturdays. The New York Times named Bonnie the most important person in the Hamptons. My mom used to call Bonnie for reservations, not me. She’s not running the show, per se—we have a general manager, Julie [Berger], who started with us when she was 13 years old. We knew Bonnie in the city: She was working for Larry Forgione, and there was a tight-knit group of Jonathan Waxman, Larry, and some others who would get together. When we came out here, she came to us pretty early. A few waiters we worked with in the city also came out. When did you expand the restaurant? Ross: About five years after we opened. That actually changed everything. There was something about a real bar, a wood-burning fireplace, and the feeling of the room that created a different

environment. We opened the addition by the seat of our pants. I made the light fixtures out of shirt-collar lining and copper tubing. We opened the porch and took away the bocce court. That was a major change. It felt more grown-up. One of the things I love about the restaurant is that when you walk in, you get a Cheers vibe—even if you’re in from out of town. Smith: Yes, and your impression is probably pretty universal. A lot of people who come here for the first time have an impression that you have to be a celebrity, but it’s much more of a convivial, casual, unpretentious place. Ross: Jeff was pretty prescient about wanting to have great food and not all the other stuff that went along with what people imagined [in a fine dining experience]. We’re out at the beach—we wanted the restaurant to feel comfortable and easy. From day one, that’s been part of it. Also, Jeff loved hosting. Mark, and Christie [Cober], and Joe, and Bonnie have really dedicated themselves to continuing to make the restaurant feel that welcoming, and it’s part of their DNA. What is family meal like? Smith: It can be anything from hot dogs to tacos to stew. I use it as a way to check out cooks, because it really gives us insight into how they prepare things. Thoughts on the summer craze? Ross: It’s bizarre, but the busier we are, the more on top of everything we are. In the summer, [customers] get the best service, food, the best everything. Which tables are the most coveted? Ross: I don’t think we should say! Smith: If you like to look at others and be seen by them, you’re probably in the front room. If you’d like to enjoy

the company of your friends, your favorite tables would be in the back. There’s definitely a little bit more buzz outside. When people write about us, they do write about the front room. Ross: But it’s partly because Steven [Spielberg] had always loved that one seat, so that became kind of a thing, but then he moved inside, so then that became a thing. A lot of crazy things have happened at the restaurant over the years… Smith: Remember when someone stole our stone dogs in the middle of service over Memorial Day weekend? Ross: Those were the first pieces Jeff and I had collected together, which is why we made them a part of our logo. Smith: They weighed 150 pounds each—maybe 200! They turned up in New York City, so we got them back. Ross: Ina Garten and I used to trade crazy customer stories—Ina almost always won—and it was kind of fun. Were you here the night Chevy [Chase] decided he was going to answer the phones and seat people? Smith: I might’ve been. Didn’t Barbara Streisand come, we were closed, and Joe still cooked for her? Ross: Remember the guy shaving at the table with an electric razor? Smith: Guess he felt he needed to shave. Ross: And there was the guy at Townline [BBQ]… Smith: Oh, doing body work on his car in the parking lot? Had two guys using an electric grinder to sand paint off his car. He comes up to Joe and says, “It’s okay. I’m having lunch here!” [Laughs] Where do you ultimately want to take the business? Smith: It’s my goal to build an organization that’s not dependent on any single person. When Jeff died [in 2001], it was a scary time. A lot of people who worked here said, “What’s going to happen? Will I still have a job?” Ross: “And if the restaurant continues, how is it going to happen without Jeff?” I definitely was MIA for a while. Smith: We’re going to continue to grow our business in some form. We started a catering company a few years ago, which is doing well, and we’ve talked about branding our products. Ross: Part of our success has been the ability to move with the times. Sometimes, we anticipate the times. You can’t stay where you were, but that being said, you also don’t want to lose what you are. Smith: In today’s environment, if you’re not moving forward, you’re moving backward. Just the microcosm of the Hamptons as a restaurant scene has changed drastically in 30 years. For the better, because there are a lot more good places to eat. I always enjoy the competition. It makes us all better.

CHEF’s TABLE

Joe Realmuto, the executive chef at Nick & Toni’s, dishes on how the iconic spot always serves the best meals in town. Toni and Mark said you started working here at age 18. Are they exaggerating? Yeah, it’s a running joke. I started at Nick & Toni’s in ’93, so I was 21. I originally lived in Queens and I grew up working at a catering hall for about six years, from high school into my second year of college. I was going to college at Baruch for accounting, and one day I was walking through Manhattan on a break. I watched people walk like a bunch of robots with their briefcases and said, “I don’t know if I can do this.” I enjoyed cooking so much and decided to put myself into cooking school and follow it as a career. What led you out to the East End? Well, I’d done my internship and continued to work at the River Café in Brooklyn, which was probably some of the greatest foundations for my career. My girlfriend at the time, who is now my wife, had moved back out here to go to restaurant management school, and she was living at home with her dad in Hampton Bays. So I figured when I graduate, I’ll come out here, spend the summer, just kind of see what it’s like, and have a good time. I instantly fell in love with everything going on. Nick & Toni’s created a place that was fun and felt like home. The kitchen crew back then was all about cooking good food. It wasn’t about the money or the hours. After the summer, I went back to the city and worked at Isabella’s and Park Avalon, and then over the winter, the chef from Nick & Toni’s called me up and asked if I want to come out one more summer and be the sous chef. I was like, “Wow. This could be great for my

career and résumé.” I never left. I just fell in love with the atmosphere—having our own garden in the backyard, fishing and walking in the backyard, farmers walking in the door with dirty boots and baskets full of beets, greens, and carrots. The whole farm-to-table thing wasn’t really talked about back then, but Nick & Toni’s really wanted that to happen. I realized, that’s what cooking and being a chef is all about. Not necessarily just serving people, but having the freshest ingredients and keeping it really simple. In 1996, we had opened Rowdy Hall and Honest Foods in the city, which eventually turned into Nick & Toni’s Café. The chef had taken a bigger position to oversee all the restaurants and I became the chef at Nick & Toni’s. Within a year, he gave his notice and I took his position. In ’96, I was 24 at the time, and I basically went to Jeff [Salaway] and said, “Listen. I know I’m young, but will you give me a shot at taking over?” Here I am, 25 years later. Can you tell us some of the partnerships you’ve developed with local farmers? Balsam Farms is one of our biggest produce suppliers. It’s run by two local guys, Alex Balsam and Ian CalderPiedmonte, who started on a small plot; now, they’re huge. They’re very handson; all organic practicing. We’ll buy from Amber Waves, a local CSA, when they have extra stuff available. We started a farmer’s market in the Nick & Toni’s parking lot, and reached out to a bunch of farms, like Quail Hill and Balsam, and it was pretty successful, so I reached out to Kate Plumb, who managed the farm market in Sag Harbor, and asked if she’d

be interested in managing the Nick & Toni’s market on Fridays. She said yes, and it’s grown to include over 22 vendors. We’d have more, but we don’t have enough room in the parking lot! Why is your fish so delicious? Our location and proximity of our restaurant to the water; also, we try to use only local fish when we can. We do the same with our vegetables and keep them as local as possible. In the summer, we’re part of Dock to Dish, an amazing program that pays local fisherman a larger percentage than they’d get paid from a market somewhere else. We pay a weekly membership and get a certain amount of fish—it’s kind of like Christmas! What do you do for the other restaurants in your group—Rowdy Hall, Townline BBQ, La Fondita, and Coche Comedor, which is opening this fall? I oversee all the kitchens. I hire and teach all the chefs and sous chefs. I also oversee the catering company [Honest Catering]. I’m writing menus, doing packouts, meeting with my catering chef and manager, going to the restaurants to make sure everything’s set up for my catering crew to go out into the field and serve everything. What’s your favorite part of the job? Writing menus, and the diversity of all the restaurants. Throwing around new menu ideas—even something as simple as fried cheese curds—is really fun. Many of your staffers are Nick & Toni’s lifers. Why do they stick around? We have an incredible staff, and we try to treat them well. We try to create an environment where they want to stay.

ADVISER Meet Yorgos Tsibiridis, a talented real estate broker with Douglas Elliman’s East Hampton team. The former financier dishes on the East End market, the secret island hideaway in his native Greece where his family spends August, and more.

How did you end up in the Hamptons— and in real estate? I’m originally from Greece, and I did my undergraduate studies there, and then I moved to the U.S. to work for different companies in finance and strategy. Then, I went to Columbia Business School; after that, I moved back to Greece to do a real estate development project there. When I moved back, I wanted to stay in real estate, and decided to do it in the Hamptons. I used to own a property in Bridgehampton, and my wife grew up going to her aunt’s house in Amagansett on the weekends in the summer, so we have always had ties here. We used to live in East Hampton, and now we live in Sag Harbor with our two boys, who are 4 and 8. What brought you to Sag? We moved to Sag Harbor because we have little kids—there’s a great sense of community, and the best school is out here. From Sag Harbor, it’s easy to get everywhere in the Hamptons. Also, my FA S H I O N W E E K D A I LY. C O M

mother-in-law lives in Southampton, so we wanted to be closer to the family. What do you really love about working in real estate? Before, I used to work for other people; now, I get to be more entrepreneurial. I get really passionate about helping people find the right place. It’s a major investment decision, because the prices are pretty high and I need to make sure that they’re comfortable. It’s about lifestyle, but it’s also a big business decision. As much time as I put into it, I get out of it. How’s your rapport with clients? It’s not just finding a beautiful house that they’re going to spend the summer in, it’s a whole process to get there. You have to advise them financially on different tax issues. You become part lawyer, part accountant, part financial adviser, part real estate agent! What are clients on the hunt for these days? People are liking more modern houses.

CONTEMPORARY CHIC This 1960s gem, inspired by Philip Johnson’s Glass House, is a compact yet ultra-sleek oasis in Springs that was completely revamped by Tsibiridis this year.

Years ago, modern wasn’t as popular; it’s much more interesting now than it used to be. Amagansett is always on the rise, because people like to be able to walk to the ocean; that’s something that, in Bridgehampton, for example, people don’t get. You could be in Bridgehampton South and still be two miles from the ocean. Montauk is a great place, really

laid-back, but it’s also quite a drive to get out there. Any types of properties you like working with the most? I love modern architecture. That’s something I worked on renovating myself, too [pictured above]. It’s a midcentury house that we restored with today’s amenities. I sold something

Steven Harris did on the beach in Montauk. What’s a particularly lavish amenity you’ve seen lately? I had a client with a house in Montauk that had a really elaborate pool house and pool area—I’m seeing more emphasis than ever on the outdoors. He easily spent a couple million dollars just to build the outdoor area, completely separate from the house. But it was beautiful! Not only did it have outdoor seating, but it had outdoor living space, with TVs that popped out. Anything you could imagine. He could’ve lived outside for the whole summer! Where should we get our real estate intel, besides from you? I always read The Real Deal; I have the app. The Hamptons is a secondary market, and a lot of people also have residency in New York City, Florida, or L.A., so you always have to know what’s happening throughout the country. because that’s what drives people to buy and sell houses here. I follow what’s happening in Europe—it’s very sophisticated there—and I check out the buyers there through The New York Times. Do you ever work with really highprofile clientele? I’ve had a lot of CEOs, business owners, and celebrities, and it’s great because they know exactly what they want. They don’t have a lot of time, so they’re very focused and easy to work with. Does being a dad help you guide families toward the right Hamptons abode? Yes, it definitely helps me when I’m dealing with clients! I understand their needs when they’re looking at a property, because I always think about what I’d look for as someone with kids—a yard, pool, playroom, things like that. I also think about what a family wants or needs with kids of different ages. For example, if they have older kids, I always tell them to be close to the village, so the kids can walk and the parents won’t have to drive them all the time. Same thing for

being near the ocean or the bay, so kids can go to the beach without having to go back and forth. I think that helps give clients some perspective. Which ’hood is really heating up? Springs has definitely seen a lot of growth. It’s a special place. It has some of the best restaurants in the Hamptons, and it’s a real community. I think that’s why

aegean bliss Tsibiridis with his sons on a jaunt to the gorgeous, low-key Greek island of Folegandros.

more and more people are looking there. Where are your Hamptons haunts? We love Duryea’s in Montauk; it reminds me of being in the Greek islands overlooking the water. Other favorites are Lulu Kitchen & Bar, and Le Bilboquet, both in Sag Harbor. Sunset Beach, the Wölffer Estate, and Stevenson’s are all great, and we also like Cowfish in Hampton Bays—they have a playground for the kids.

Do you do much entertaining at home? We do, a lot! We have a nice outdoor area. In the summer, we have friends over for cheese and wine, and we sit by the pool. I like to make a lot of Greek food; that’s kind of my specialty. Can you recommend any Greek restaurants in the city and out East? Everything at Elaia’s in Bridgehampton is truly amazing, especially the pork chop. In the city, we go to Pylos, in the East Village. It’s been there forever! Where do you go to escape the Hamptons? Folegandros, a small island in Greece that’s only seven miles long. My wife and I actually went there for our honeymoon. We didn’t know anything about it; we just picked it randomly. Since then, we’ve been there, like, a million times. We usually go for 10 days. When we moved back to Greece, we bought some property there. Everything there is kind of small; there are a couple of restaurants, and there’s water sports. It’s not a big resort kind of thing; it’s very low-key. It’s a really beautiful island—a mini Santorini! FA S H I O N W E E K D A I LY. C O M
