☛ Robert Wilson’s annual event to fête the 21st year of the Watermill performing arts center brought out the style set in their best metallics, turbans, and tunics. (The theme was “One Thousand Nights and One Night: Sleepless Nights of Sheherazade.”) Guests at the arty event included the likes of Kim Cattrall, Philip Glass, Ross Bleckner, Sally Hershberger, Yigal Azrouel, and Eric Ripert, who helped to raise $2.2 million for the Watermill Center. An after-party highlight: a guitar performance from Jim Jarmusch. ☛ David and Sybil Yurman graced the sprawling Beechnut Hill Farm in Bridgehampton to host ACRIA’s annual Cocktails at Sunset affair. ☛ Meanwhile, beauty junkies abounded at The Daily Summer’s luxe, intimate lounge at c/o The Maidstone. Products and pampering included tress attention from John Frieda’s hair maestros and some visage TLC, thanks to Thuyen Nguyen of La Don Spa. There were snacks from The Chia Co., sips via Pampelonne, VEEV, Evian, and Peroni, and gift bags brimming with beauty loot from White’s Pharmacy. For a bit of shopping, SinnStyle’s pop-up shop was on hand. The folks at Boots Pharmacy did makeovers and foundation matching, and Fabiola Sevilla, beauty stylist at La Don Spa, masterminded eyebrow shaping, tinting, and eyelash extensions for the scads of beauty editors and fashionettes, like mod-turnedfood-blogger Teresa Moore and Swedish fashion editrix Martina Bonnier.

Did you plan your dress according to the theme? No, this is my first time here, and I didn’t know what to expect.

YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH THE L.I.E. How do you keep busy on the trek out East, darlings? “My fiancé and I prepared an entire to-do list of everything we had not done or talked about over the past three weeks. And after 20 minutes, we scratched that and sang the whole way here.” —Ariel Foxman

“I usually take the train, where

I curse out the loud people talking on their cell phones. I also “I try to do all the interviews I have to do, which I don’t enjoy doing too much. I like to get them over with!” —Bruce Weber

read The Economist because I love international politics.” —Mickey Boardman

“I turn on NPR really, really loud. If I’m taking the train, I bring along a big stack of magazines. Last time I had a Vogue with me that was a year old, and I didn’t even know it! Otherwise, I usually have Allure, Harper’s Bazaar, Lucky, and The Daily Summer, of course.” —Nanette Lepore

“I Instagram! I hit refresh, see how many likes I got on my bus selfie!” —Cameron Silver

“I ask my friends riding in the car with me to answer my texts. Besides that,

I listen to the news on the radio.”

—Frederico Azevedo

“I’ve been going to the Hamptons since I was a teenager and I still haven’t come up with a good thing to do on the LIE! Like everybody else,

“I recently watched almost the entire series of Orange Is the New Black.” —Deborah Lloyd

I wonder if I’m going to feel relaxed when I come back. I used to always stop at Exit 70—there was an amazing restaurant that sold hot dogs and hamburgers—but it turned into a bank about five years ago.” —Reed Krakoff

SOHO OR BUST! With Ramy Brook

We heard you’ll be setting up shop in Soho soon. It’s true! We’re opening a store at the end of September on Prince Street. Favorite Soho haunts? Cafe Gitane and Café Habana. What are your fall basics? Yummy sweaters and suede boots. Now that your handbag line is booming, what do you stow in your totes? My iPhone, notebook, pen, a small makeup bag that always has my favorite Laura Mercier lip gloss. And my wallet! One thing we’ll never find in your bag? A black Sharpie! I once ruined one of my favorite bags when the cap came off.

BAUBLE TIME! With jewelry designer Efva Attling




Vineyard Vines ☛ Airstream alert! Bauble brand Miansai is popping up at Navy Beach in a chic-ified trailer. Stocked with nautical bits and bobs, it also has the parfait Montauk souvenir—a golden cuff stamped with the latitude and longitude of its Hamptons pop-up. ☛ Vineyard Vines presented its latest outpost to the world this summer, an East Hampton shop stocked with all things cheery, preppy, and sporting its signature whale, bien sûr! ☛ Practice your downward dog because c/o The Maidstone is doling out a complete Koral Activewear outfit to each guest who spends the night. Just make sure you don’t sleep through morning yoga in the garden! ☛ Reed Krakoff is trekking out East on August 7 to bring his luxe threads and accessories to Hamptonites. He’ll be shacking up with Glenn Horowitz Bookseller at 87 Koral Activewear Newtown Ln. in East Hampton for only three days, so get ’em Luxest wares from Reed Krakoff while they’re hot!

What is the most luxurious bauble you’ve ever made? I was given a bag of diamonds from the wife of Björn Ulvaeus, who is one of the B’s in ABBA! His wife gave me total freedom to design a necklace. It’s a great piece. What piece of jewelry do you never, ever take off? My three-carat diamond ring and, of course, my self-made wedding ring. What’s on deck for your fall designs? Our collection this fall is called “I’ve Got Balls.” It features big silver balls. Any stories from your modeling days? I lived with the drummer of The Who in London and partied with Mick Jagger. Which model did you idolize? I was represented by Ford Models, and once, Lauren Hutton was in the office with me. To me, she was the queen of all models.

Move Over, Malibu!

Greg Chait, designer of The Elder Statesman, brings his cashmere goodies to Tiina The Store in Amagansett.

What’s the one item you really want to create out of cashmere, but have yet to do? Lingerie! Where’s the strangest place you’ve worn cashmere? Arizona, in the middle of the summer. I wasn’t thinking when I packed! Would you ever make a cashmere swimsuit? Only if it wasn’t going to be worn in the water. PLUS! Tiina Laakkonen of Tiina The Store, says… Greg is brilliant! He’s an original, and he’s turned the idea of cashmere upside down and made it cool again. I wear my cashmere all year now, but I never even knew what it was growing up in Finland. I only discovered it when I moved to Paris in my late teens! 216 Main St., Amagansett


JOE FRESH Chic of the Week While Hampton Coffee Company’s lobster rolls and hydrating bottles of Evian were only part of the draw at Joe Fresh and The Daily Summer’s Chic of the Week, plenty of best-dressed guys and gals trekked to Southampton on July 19 to strut their stuff. Name, age, and profession, please! Sarah Lorraine White, 28, daughter, sister, friend, and mother of two beautiful cats. What’s on your Joe Fresh shopping list? The safari silk shirt, white straw sun hat, and polka dot ruffle dress. What’s the freshest song of the summer? “You and I” by Lady Gaga. What’s your favorite Hamptons memory? All of last weekend, which included truth or dare at The Surf Lodge, dancing to ’80s and ’90s music all night at Ruschmeyer’s, doing karaoke at a friend’s house in East Hampton, shopping in Southampton, frolicking through Channing Daughters Winery, a day on the beach, girl talk at Southampton Social Club, and going to Cyril’s four days in a row. r y a n l i u ( 3 ) ; b f a n y c . c o m ( 3 ) ; g e tt y i m a g e s ( 2 ) ; a ll o t h e r s c o u r t e s y

Beauty NEWS!

With Lauren Remington Platt, founder and CEO of Vênsette

Have you ever filled in for one of your makeup artists or hairstylists? Never! I created Vênsette specifically because I am not great at my own hair and makeup. I know firsthand the difference a professional hair and makeup artist makes. Any tips? When it comes to getting the less-is-more look, it’s all about the application process. With the right skills and tools, you can look flawless and natural but still have coverage.


With Shop Hers co-founder Jaclyn Shanfeld

How did Shop Hers come to be? The launch came from my personal need to refresh my own wardrobe in a capacity that was fun and stylish. What I hated about consignment and other merchants was that the price at which you had to sell was always declared for you. If I had known they were going to sell my Missoni dress for $50, I would have kept it and given it to my sister or used it as a tablecloth. On Shop Hers, you can make the pricing decision yourself. What’s the most luxurious price tag that someone has selected on Shop Hers? An orange ostrich Birkin bag that sold for $27,000!

Urban Zen’s Donna Karan On The Five Greatest Luxuries In Life 1. The ultimate luxury: “Time to myself. I never have enough of it because there’s always too much to do!” 2. A luxurious bite: “My daughter Gabby Karan DeFelice’s Tutto Il Giorno restaurants in Sag Harbor and Southampton. The food is amazing yet simple, and you get to surround yourself with friends and family in a very chic and comfortable environment.” 3. Urban Zen’s best-selling luxury: “We created an exclusive collection of tissue-weight cashmere scarves, handwoven in Nepal. They feel divine and are perfect all summer long.” 4. An unconventional luxury, just for kicks: “I love traveling to unknown parts of the world. And if the place is exotic, undiscovered, raw, and preserved in ancient traditions, the better.” 5. The simplest luxury: “For me, it’s spending time with grandchildren and family. You get to see and discover life anew with fresh eyes. There’s also a lot of laughing!” 4 Bay St., Sag Harbor

Valentino for All! In the market for an exclusive bag or a killer pair of studded booties? Look no further than Valentino’s brand-spankin’-new flagship store in the space that was formerly occupied by Takashimaya. This is the perfect excuse to cut your Hamptons weekend short, right? 693 Fifth Ave., NYC

Picking Favorites! With designer Lisa Marie Fernandez “In East Hampton, I love Turpan (55 Main St., #3). Even though it’s little, it’s one of my favorites because I just love Greg Turpan’s selection. Tenet in Southampton is great because they sell my collection there! (91 Main St.) And Surf Bazaar at the Surf Lodge in Montauk (183 S. Edgemere St.) is like a little shack! I also like Martine and Juan (805 Main St.), which sells a mix of vintage and new pieces.”

What was your concept?

anything on the market from days gone by. Try Frizz Ease Smooth Start and Daily Nourishment leave-in conditioner. Any tips for avoiding chlorine damage? Chlorine removes natural oils, so start from the inside out. Deep-condition your hair before swimming, then finish with a conditioner that contains silicone to prevent hair from absorbing chlorine as easily. And rinse your hair immediately after you get out of the pool! FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y. C O M

The burrata—it’s a feast for the eyes and tummy. What’s your room service order? The truffle mac ’n’ cheese, for sure! What do you eat in a typical day?

words of wisdom


With Nick & Toni’s new pastry chef, Rachel Cronemeyer Where were you baking before Nick & Toni’s? I spent a few years at North Fork Table & Inn. What’s your best seller? Bomboloni! They’re cinnamon sugar donuts filled with almond cream. You also do desserts for Honest Man Restaurant Group’s other eateries. How do you juggle ’em all? Very carefully! It’s crazy creating desserts for five restaurants. Nick & Toni’s has serious, elaborate desserts, while Townline BBQ has birthday cake and fried pecan pies. 136 N. Main St., East Hampton


With East End restaurateur extraordinaire David Loewenberg

What mistakes do Hamptons resto owners make? Not understanding their demographics! Too many operators believe the Hamptons are like Vegas. You run five restos! What do you eat at each joint? The Beacon’s bouillabaisse late night on the deck, Bell & Anchor’s oysters and crudos, Little|Red’s tuna sandwich, Red|Bar’s truffled chicken breast, and anything Gretchen is cooking in a cazuela at Fresno. What’s next on your docket?

UBER HAS ARRIVED IN THE HAMPTONS Uber is a mobile application that connects riders to drivers with the tap of a button. In minutes a driver will be curbside, ready to take you wherever you need to go.









Legendary editrix Carlyne Cerf de Dudzeele has spent her career at the white-hot center of chic, spreading her gospel on the pages of the world’s fashion bibles. The Daily spent two hours in j’adore mode with the Parisian-born quote machine to get the inside scoop on #CerfStyle. ow do you define luxury? For me luxury is simplicity and should be effortless! You’re known for your singular aesthetic. How do you define #CerfStyle? I was born this way! My style comes from the inside. I work from instinct. I am totally visual. As Karl says, “a classique eccentrique.” I think he’s right. To have style is the most important thing. You don’t need expensive clothes to have style. It’s about attitude and personality. All my life I have always mixed high and low. That is #CerfStyle—something that I created and was recognized for. I was the first to mix Chanel jackets with jeans, furs, and T-shirts. I mixed Adidas tracksuits with gold Rolex Daytonas and Chanel bags. This is what I call my salade! I have done this all my life. You worked with Anna Wintour on her first Vogue cover and put Michaela Bercu in jeans. I was shooting couture in Paris with Peter Lindbergh. I said, “Non, non, non, don’t put the skirt on. Put on my jeans!” It happened like this. Now, it’s history! I’ve always done this kind of thing all my life. I was doing it already at French FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y. C O M

Elle for 10 years. You’re also not a fan of trends… I hate trends! I always create my own fashion. Trends are the opposite of me. When I see the collections of some designers, I know every single story the magazines are going to shoot. Unfortunately, people follow what they see and lack invention to create their own story. What’s the most luxurious thing in the world to you? My freedom. I was born in luxury. For me, it can be the most simple thing in life. But lately, perhaps the definition has changed. Sometimes what people call luxury is simply bad taste. What do you mean? I mean that luxury means a lot of things. I love sophistication. I love quality. For example, a simple fisherman navy sweater can be luxury. Often when I work, I say, “I don’t need all of this.” I prefer quality over quantity. I don’t know how to explain. It’s impossible to explain. Luxury is a feeling. I am luxury! You’re famous for being fun, but also tough, on set. Yes, I need action! I need movement, happiness, and good vibrations around me. I am full of energy, curious about everything, and have a sarcastic sense




I don’t know how to explain. It’s impossible to explain. Luxury is a feeling. I am luxury!

waiting for me every day. I have been raised to appreciate things of quality and simple pleasures. I live in luxury continuellement. You keep it real. I am totally real, darling. The big trouble in my life is that I always say the truth. Some people don’t like to hear it because the truth can be tough to hear. But I always say it anyway. I can’t help it. C’est moi! Do you ever worry about hurting feelings? I know sometimes I hurt feelings. I don’t want to offend anyone. It’s just honesty. Unfortunately, I am authentic, sincere, and passionate. C’est la vie! Do you have rules you live by? Yessss! I love respect, love honesty, love friendship, love loyalty, love integrity, love generosity, love manners. No pretentiousness and fakeness with moi! People often refer to you as a stylist. Is that what you do? I don’t think about what people think about me. I build stories. I create style. Styling is much too limiting for me. I am an orchestrator and inspirer. I make things happen. I create magic. All this with a ton of energy, love, and passion. I remember at my beginning at Vogue, working with Christy Turlington in Cabo San Lucas, Patrick Demarchelier told me, “Carlyne, you can be a fashion editor. You can be a photographer. You can be an art director.” In the end, I did everything that I wanted—and he was right! You know what I like in my work? That things do not look dated. The way things are mixed. This is what #CerfStyle is all about. What do you think of the word “bling”? J’adore bling! J’aime ça! I sometimes prefer a certain “vulgarité” from what people call “good taste.” There is a fine line, but don’t ask me where it is. It is very tricky to explain! Do you plan your outfits the night before? Moi? Never! [Laughs] Okay, next question. What’s with you and leopard, by the way? Moi? J’adore leopard. I am obsessed with leopard because it can be the most divine thing if you know how to play with it. Worst fashion faux pas you’ve seen lately? Cannot answer. There are too many! Do you get recognized on the street? Sometimes. I’m always very nice with people who stop me. It touches me a lot. They see me on Instagram, I think. You’re a recent Insta convert. I’ve been doing it for a year or so. It amuses me. I could post a picture every hour, I have so much. What magazines do you read? I look at everything online now. But I’m bored looking at most magazines. This is a horrible truth. The only place I was still looking at magazines was on planes. Now, with the Wifi on so many airlines, I almost never do. What is it you don’t like about them? I have seen everything already online! What websites do you read? The Daily Mail UK is the best one in the world! You don’t have to go anywhere else because you get it all there right away. You should do a book. Of course I should do a book! I know I should. It’s incredible the luck I have had to have worked with so many great photographers: Penn, Avedon, Steven Meisel, Peter Lindbergh, Arthur Elgort, Inez and Vinoodh, Mario Testino, Patrick Demarchelier, and so many others. Any final thoughts? I am a French, Parisian, eccentric, original, life addict. I am passionate, obsessive, creative, and honest. I am all about panache, sophistication, and simplicity. Luxury is the result of my authenticity. That’s it! As The New York Times wrote: “A Legend Who’s Unafraid to Say So.” Voila!

Now you can be a star overnight, like a mushroom! You can be a makeup artist, a hairdresser, a photographer, a model, a fashion editor. Overnight you are a star!

of humor. Everything I do, even if it’s boring, I will do it with excitement. I cannot stand people who are down, morose, complaining all the time. For me, there is no separation. I enjoy everything I do. I love nature. I am obsessed with nature. And I adore animals, many times more than humans! I also cook. I cook like I work. I can cook with my eyes closed. I do everything with intuition. Are you surprised how mainstream fashion has become? No! I am not surprised at all. I think a lot of people now think it’s trendy to be in fashion, but they are not fashion. Let’s talk about your jewelry. You must have quite a collection. Yes, a serious collection. I don’t need to wear them all, or show them all. They are for my personal pleasure. What about your longtime relationship with Azzedine Alaïa? Discuss! I have the deepest admiration for Mr. Alaïa. He is beyond fashion. He is the master—he has always been and always will be. Azzedine is my family. When you have real talent, you have no need to be pretentious. I think this is the chicest thing in the world. He is a genius, off doing his own thing with people begging for his clothes. You also have a long relationship with Karl Lagerfeld. I do. Because Karl understands. He gets it. He gets everything quickly. He is one of the sharpest, most cultured people I have ever met. He’s like a walking encyclopedia! You were at French Elle for a decade during its heyday. What was that like? It was serious, but not pretentious. And we had a blast, too. We were a small, talented team, which is when you do the good s**t. But the thing I hate now is that it’s not quick enough. French Elle is a weekly magazine. Bing, bing, and it’s out. It’s good? It’s not good? Doesn’t matter! You like? You don’t like? Who cares? Next week, there’s another issue. It was not a big statement or planned. It was simple and honest. This is what fashion is about! How has fashion changed? I believe that there was a lot less space for mediocrity then. Why do you think that is? Perhaps the standards are not as high now. Now you can be a star overnight, like a mushroom! You can be a makeup artist, a hairdresser, a photographer, a model, a fashion editor. Overnight you are a star! Do you think designers have to be attractive now? I don’t think so, but the industry does. If a designer is hot, everybody is going to go, “Oh, he’s so hot!” I don’t care about this. Me, I prefer he makes a woman look hot. You love people-watching. I love to watch everything. I am totally obsessed with the street. I can sit for hours on the bench outside Sant Ambroeus on Madison, or on any terrace in the world: heaven total! The way people carry themselves in a crowd, the way they act when they think no one is looking. Mamma mia! The good, the bad—I love it all. I’m also obsessed with the way many African-Americans dress. They have style in their hearts. Much more so than white people. That’s not politically correct, but it’s true. They have style and exude confidence from the inside. I love it. We can’t imagine you at a desk job. I can’t imagine me either! Going to meetings, hours of brainstorming about fashion—it doesn’t make sense for me. Never again anymore in my life. I have to move. I need action. I cannot be trapped. I can’t imagine being creative in a cubicle, and feel so privileged and lucky that I don’t have to do it. Who lives the most luxurious life of anybody you know? I don’t know how to answer. Luxurious could mean a little shack on the beach, too. No cars, no noise, no people, but with cases of champagne. Dom Perignon? No! I have been raised with Cristal, so it’s just normal for me. But I always say I do just as well in a yellow cab as an SUV. I refuse to have a car and driver

Jenné Lombardo Founder of MADE What’s your most prized fashion possession? Anything passed down to me from my grandmother. I can’t wear most of it, but I appreciate the formality of style back then. There was so much pride and effort that went into dressing up. Whose style do you admire most? I appreciate menswear and think every man should dress like or try to emulate James Dean and Marlon Brando at least once in their lives. Tight, rolled-up T-shirts, baggy pants with a belt cinched at the waist, pants cuffed up high, a leather jacket if it gets cold. That look could break a million hearts! What’s the oldest item in your closet? Some Victorian lace tea dresses from the early 1900s. They are so ghost-like and beautiful. What’s one thing we will never see you wearing? Khakis, Crocs, and anything by Christian Audigier. What are you currently lusting after? A men’s vintage Rolex from the ’50s with a brown crocodile band and a Toyota Land Cruiser from 1985–86 in light steel blue.

CHIC History

It was the cable that built the empire: David Yurman’s passion for sculpture and the American Craft movement during the ’60s eventually turned into a booming business, making Yurman one of the most iconic names in fashion. BY PAIGE REDDINGER

YURMAN-OLOGY 1942 David Yurman is born on October 12, 1942 in Manhattan. Sybil Yurman (née Kleinrock) is born on December 10, 1942 in the Bronx. 1969 David meets Sybil while working for sculptor Hans Van de Bovenkamp in New York City. She would become his co-creater—his partner in business and life. FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y. C O M

Late 1960s David and Sybil create their earliest collections under the name Putnam Art Works, selling them at arts-and-crafts fairs around the country. 1970 David apprentices with Theodore Roszak, a leading figure of the post World War II New York school of modern sculpture.

1970s David designs the sculpted bronze Dante necklace as a gift for Sybil. A gallerist falls in love with it and places a few in her gallery. They immediately sell out, launching the Yurman’s first jewelry business. 1979 David and Sybil Yurman get married at Temple Emanuel in New York. Afterward, they meet some friends for

lunch, then head straight to a business meeting, planning to sell their company. The sale is supposed to be Sybil’s wedding present, but the offer is too low. The Yurmans walk away from the deal. 1980 David Yurman, the brand and company is created, and later that year receives the Jury Award from the World Gold Council for the Starlight

For Milly designer Michelle Smith, the East End is a place to relax and rejuvenate. And now that she’s a retailer, thanks to her booming store on Main Street in East Hampton, she’s even learning to enjoy the occasional rainy day. BY ASHLEY BAKER PHOTOGRAPHY BY stefania curto

Promesse mood board by Alexandre Peraldi

a Promesse to Keep

Over its 184-year history, Baume & Mercier has been revered for its quality Swiss-made watches that have the look and feel of luxury at a price point that encourages collecting. For the first time in a decade, the brand is launching a new women’s line, Promesse, based on an archival piece from the ’70s. So what took them so long? CEO Alain Zimmermann and longtime design director Alexandre Peraldi fill us in on the complicated process of perfection. BY PAIGE REDDINGER FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y. C O M

What inspired the collection’s name? Alain Zimmermann: Designing watches is very difficult—this one took around five years just to design. The name is the first contact—it’s a message. The overall brand message is about celebration, so we said, “How can we find a name that tells the story?” It’s not just a watch. It’s not just mechanics and components. Promesse sounds feminine, and it’s a name you can use all over the world: “Promesse” in French, “promise” in English, “promessa” in Italian. Like a promise, it’s universal. The watch is a promise to somebody you love, somebody who’s important to you, or even a promise for yourself. This is Baume & Mercier’s first new women’s watch in 10 years. Why now? Alain: I am relatively new to the brand having joined in 2009, but Alexandre has been here for 10 or 15 years. I discovered how important it is to have a balance between men and women. A lot of brands have both collections, but when it comes to credibility, is it natural? Only for very few brands, and Baume is included. In the past 10 years, because of the success of some of our men’s collections like Classima and, more recently, Clifton, we went toward men’s. The last very successful collection [for women] was Linea, and then we had the Hampton line. So five years ago, we decided it was time for something new. How did you decide on the oval shape? Alain: The Hampton featured a rectangular shape, and with Linea, we used the Tourneau shape. There was no reason why we shouldn’t have added one more very unique shape. So let’s go for the most important, the round shape. But creating a round shape with some signature is the most difficult. Alexandre had hair five years ago, but he doesn’t have it any more! [Laughs] Why did the design process take so long? Alain: You have to explore every direction to make sure the final one is the right one. If you have no price limit, it is very easy. When it comes to combing quality, uniqueness, and price, that takes time, especially on a round watch. Alexandre Peraldi: The round shape was a nightmare, to be honest, but also a great pleasure. To design a watch for a man is easy. It’s big or small, black or

Alain Zimmermann

Our purpose is to create watches for now and the future, like the Promesse. When you make a promise, you don’t make a promise back in time. A promise is always into the future, and so are our watches.

white, sporty or classic. Alain: Designing the case for men is where you put all your energy, then you add the bracelet. For women, it’s a jewelry piece, so the bracelet is equally as important as the case. Even more complicated is the integration, making sure that it is one whole piece, not just something that has been added onto the case. Either you compromise and say, “I’m fine with it,” and you’re ready after three years, or you don’t. That’s not the way we conceive watchmaking. If we have to compromise, we prefer to say “no.” We pull back and we start again. It’s not a fashion collection—a watch lasts forever, so you only have one chance to make it right. How long does it usually take you to create a new design? Alexandre: Between two and three years. The Promesse took five. We tried many, many different aesthetics. It’s based on an archival piece from the ’70s? Alexandre: Yes. We chose it because of the round interval. The objective was to be round, but with a touch of originality. Alain: We wanted it to be wearable every day. We didn’t want a niche watch for just three occasions a year. Alexandre: We came back with something simple. We kept the oval and we tried to keep the vibration from the oval to the bracelet to have fluidity on the wrist. It was hard work to develop all the parts separately but as the same piece. Adding the bracelet took very, very long. We also worked with the industry and the marketing team, because they have a target in terms of price, and we have a target in terms of aesthetics. Alain: What makes Baume & Mercier strong is making watches that are very contemporary. The woman of today is not living in the ’70s. Our purpose is to create watches for now and the future, like the Promesse. How is the collection priced? Alain: Some styles are priced at $1,900 and our most special piece is $7,300. It’s very importantas a brand that we remain accessible to our clientele. We want them to feel good about purchasing a 100 percent Swiss-made watch of the highest quality that is still affordable. Do clients ever request custom pieces, like those from your museum in Geneva? Alain: Sure. If we were in Geneva today, we would put pieces from 1918 on your wrist, and you might say, “Could you produce one for me?” But our goal is not to make just one woman happy. It’s to make as many women happy as possible.

The Italian stunner (and bona fide princess) Melusine Ruspoli has landed her first Salvatore Ferragamo campaign. So how will she celebrate? By spending her summer in the Hamptons, of course. BY PAIGE REDDINGER PHOTOGRAPHY BY GIORGIO NIRO

Welcome! What are your impressions of the Hamptons? It’s really American here—it’s like being in a film where everything is really nice and the homes are like dollhouses. Everything is perfect! In Italy, everything is much more rustic. Have you been enjoying the nightlife? I’ve been to a lot of house parties in East Hampton and Southampton. I’ve also been to Montauk— Surf Lodge and Navy Beach. Have you done any shopping? No, I don’t have time. I prefer to go to the beach! What do you like to do when you’re at the beach? Just relax, be with friends, and stay together and have a good time. Are you a swimmer? I like to go in the water when it’s really hot outside. I like to do sports. I don’t surf, but I wish I could. Do you play any sports? I used to ride horses, but now I swim and run a lot. What do you love about the Hamptons? I like the fact that we’re so close to the city and we have a little paradise. Thoughts on our beach attire? Americans wear too many clothes! Where do you vacation? We have a family castle near Rome called Castello Ruspoli in Vignanello Viterbo, and we spend a few days with all the family there. And usually, I also go to the South of France, then I go to Capalbio, Capri, or Panarea. Usually we go there with a lot of friends. There are no electric lamps, and there are really cool places to go at night. During the day you take these little boats and you go in the sea and there are spots where everyone meets. It’s really cool. What was your reaction to being cast in the Ferragamo campaign? I was really happy, especially because Ferragamo is an Italian brand, and I am really proud to represent a brand that has tradition. For me, this brand means a lot. What was the first Ferragamo piece you ever bought? The Varinas. They took inspiration from vintage FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y. C O M

shoes and then made them new—and they’re also the brand’s best seller. Now I’ve discovered the Fiamma, and it’s a really cool bag. It’s timeless— you can wear it however you want. Who are your fashion icons? Coco Chanel; Karl Lagerfeld, because he knows how to manage different brands; and Wanda Ferragamo. She’s 90 years old, but she’s still in the office every day. How do you feel about your princess title? In America, people are really amazed by it. I have to say, it’s helped me a lot. In Italy, it’s more common. I have other friends who have titles, so we don’t care as much about them. We heard you attended the Bal des Débutantes in Paris… It was like being in a fairy tale! I met girls from all over the world. I also had a really good time trying on dresses, because every girl was trying to represent a brand. What did you wear? Chanel.

What’s your earliest fashion memory? I’ve been obsessed with clothes since I was little. I was always going in my mother’s closet, but she would never let me borrow anything. Now, I take some of her things when she’s not there, and I put them back nicely like nothing has happened. But my mother is a perfectionist, so sometimes she notices that it’s been used and then it’s a disaster. Do you have sisters? No, but I have four brothers. What was that like? I like it because I didn’t have to share anything, and I feel really protected with all those brothers around. How would you describe your style? Easygoing and classic, but it depends on the occasion. Are you in school? Yes, I’m going to Istituto Marangoni, a fashion institute in London where I will study fashion business.

ROSS BLECKNER From his bestie Calvin to his Mudd Club days, Ross Bleckner’s past, present, and future are discussed at length with friendly interrogator George Wayne. PHOTOGRAPHY BY RACHEL BRENNECKE

So, Ross Bleckner, your Wikipedia claims that you studied with Sol LeWitt and Chuck Close. Does that mean you interned for Sol and Chuck? No, George, that just means that when I went to college at NYU, they happened to be teaching there. And you know how it is, George—you kind of enter into a dialogue, and sometimes that dialogue lasts a long time, and it did with both of them. Of course Sol has passed FA S H I O N W E E K D A I L Y. C O M

away, but I knew him for many, many years. You first started going to the East End how long ago? And what has always intrigued you most about the Hamptons? Well, the greatest thing for me is that it is close to New York City and even though I used to be “upstate’’ in the Hudson Valley in the ideal dream farmhouse, I decided to make a clean break in Sagaponack. Here, I

have close friends and privacy when I want it. I am here from the second week in May until around November, so for more than half the year, this is where you will find me. Do you keep a schedule when you are out here? Where do you shop for bagels? I never keep a schedule, and I never shop for bagels. You own Truman Capote’s place, for Christ’s sake! And GW is f***ing envious! And amazingly, you bought it for peanuts—a mere $800,000 in 1990. Today, you could easily sell that property to some bored oligarch for $40 million! That would be nice, trust me. I would be happy to sell it to some oligarch. What is it about that iconic piece of East End real estate that screamed, I have to own it? It just happened to be available. It was just one of those circumstances. And you entertain here? And do you allow public tours of your studio? No and no. I never entertain here, but my friends can come over, sure, and I will serve them one bottle of Poland Spring. Well, you were born under the sign of Taurus, after all. And you know what they say about Taurus men: They tend to be very stubborn and are creatures of habit. And most important of all: They are very, very cheap! Describe you work in general terms. What is it you seek? My paintings have a lot to do with consciousness and microcosm and looking out at the architecture in the sky, and looking in at the mind and the body and the place where all that intercepts. Hence, some of your best-known works, where you have incorporated the use of your brain scans. I believe if you look at something close enough and long enough, it all becomes abstract. And how successful was your recent show at the Mary Boone Gallery? Were you happy with the reception to this year’s first shown works in many, many years? Yes, I was very happy. Most of the pieces have sold, and I felt good about the work. I am sure if anyone has seen the much talked about, much buzzed, finally finished brand-new home of your BFF Calvin Klein, it would be you, Ross Bleckner. Is it a modernist, jaw-dropping masterpiece? It is actually very simple and romantic, and very much the essence of Calvin. It is completely in line with his aesthetic, with an abundance of natural light. Is there going to be a huge bacchanal there this summer? No, those days are over. You know, I always remember the summer of Calvin and Nick a few seasons or three ago. The first time I saw them together at some posh event in Water Mill, I thought to myself, Wow. I love the way they complement each other. The chemistry was so natural—Nick Gruber was clearly being groomed to be a younger and gorgeous version of his sugar daddy. But they were a great couple! I think Calvin should give

Nick another chance. I know Nick well and despite his erratic behavior, I like him a lot. Well, that is never going to happen. That is so over. And like Calvin, you also have a twink fetish, or so the rumor goes. A what? A twink fetish—you prefer the company of much younger men. [Laughs uproariously] Hah! That is not at all true. At all. Is there any significant other in your life? I have a boyfriend, and he is no twink. One thing you love doing on a fabulous, flawless sun-swept Saturday afternoon in Sagaponack would be what? Working in my studio more often than not, and I like to visit Wainscott a lot for some reason. I also like going to the beach, but I will not tell you which one. I have been working so much because next season I will be part of a huge, huge retrospective at the new Parrish Art Museum—both David Salle and myself. [Admires George’s handwriting] Gosh, I love the way you write. No one can understand it. But that is the entire point, Ross. This is the GW version of hieroglyphs! Only GW can translate his entire penmanship. It is done on purpose. That said, do you feel that you are in your most creative fecund of late? I am always inspired when I go out to Long Island for the summer, and I am actually looking forward very much to what the rest of the season holds as far as my creative fecund as you call it [laughs uproariously]. I have been putting together a lot of ideas that I will explore in the open air of Sagaponack. I think you need to loosen up and sex up the next big projects, Ross Bleckner. Your work is way too dense for my personal tastes. I don’t really get it, to be quite honest. Maybe that is why as your own longtime gallery guru Mary Boone says, “Ross is an artist’s artist.” I think you need to take a field trip to Venice for some inspiration. I’d love to, and I will take you up on that suggestion, but after the summer—it is way too hot and touristy now. As for not “getting my work,” there is not much to get. Yes, it is very layered and very evocative of the elusive light source. But that’s just my way of making you think. You resurrected op art in the 1980s, according to one astute art critic. What would be your ethos or raison d’être for your 21st-century work? I would say that it will encompass a certain fragility and at the same time a certain agility, and that is all I will say for now. Another fascinating factoid: Back in the ’80s, Ross Bleckner lived in an apartment right above the legendary Mudd Club. The Mudd Club is the reason I decided I just had to move to New York City. I will never forget how starstruck and overcome with joy I was when I first walked into that hovel. For there across the room were Andy Warhol and Keith Haring. I was just giddy with glee.

Yes, I did live above the Mudd Club, and yes, I am not surprised you saw Keith Haring there, because he used to work there at the time. I was never friends with Andy Warhol. I always thought he was a bit of a creep.

Strange Sister, 2013

Yes, I did live above the Mudd Club, and yes, I am not surprised you saw Keith Haring there, because he used to work there at the time. I was never friends with Andy Warhol. I always thought he was a bit of a creep. And to be quite honest, even though I lived above the Mudd Club, I hardly ever went there. And why is that most of your works are titled “Untitled’’? That all sounds so forced and pretentious. Why is it that hard just to throw a title on a completed painting? Because I like the idea of the person viewing my work to come up with their own ideas, their own thoughts on what the work means and as such what they would want to call it. I guess that it all just defines the essence of my ambiguity. WAY N E : G I O R G I O N I R O ; S T R A N G E S I S T E R : PAT R I C K M C M U L L A N . C O M

I’m an old parasite. This is probably my last host. I can’t fly or jump so it’s basically a waiting game. I usually go by body odor, body heat, vibrations— Questing, I think it’s called. Something like that, yeah. I’m


just a parasitic bloodsucker, buddy. What do I know? You’re part of the arachnid family, yes? I see somebody’s been readin’ Wikipedia! I tell my youngest he’s part vampire, which is great. Builds his self esteem. The spiders think they’re better than us. Can you blame them? I can’t, really. We’re the most hated pest on Long Island after the share house renters. Every summer there’s a whole big freak-out about how we’re worse than we’ve ever been. Or so I’m told. I’m only five months old. Does that sort of thing upset you? Of course it upsets me. My family’s been on Long Island for the past 5,000 years and now some guy who spends six weekends a summer here is gonna tell me I’m a nuisance? I’ve lost millions of family members to these people. Millions. But they can’t keep us down. They certainly can’t. What scares you most? Asking for a friend. Aside from tweezers? Probably DDT, but they outlawed that stuff in the ’70s. I’ve heard stories, though. Not to be indelicate, but do you carry diseases? You’ll never know, will you? Neither will I, actually, unless I get pinched, stuffed into a Ziploc, and mailed to some lab for testing. I mean, you can’t make this stuff up. Absolute animals, these people. What’s your favorite part of the body? I’m an armpit guy myself, but I’ll take what I can get. You should come out and see me some time. You sound tasty.
