I remember visiting the ETRO headquarters in Milan a few years back and falling in love with every single print that draped the walls and the carpets. It remains one of my favorite Italian fashion houses. I spent the weekend with the brand and The Daily Front Row out in Amagansett in East Hampton. You could find me playing in the grass and staring at the clouds on a hammock here at The Reform Club Inn. Summer in the Hamptons is so green and so beautiful. I could bike around these streets all day long daydreaming if I could. For now, here is a little ETRO story in the Hamptons to get you inspired for your next weekend out East.
Thank you Hamptons Monthly for having me as your cover star this month! I am proud to be a true New Yorker now. The Hamptons is truly one of my favorite locations to photograph in. I remember visiting Montauk for the first time many years ago on location for a campaign shoot. And ever since, work has brought me back countless times. I love it so much. It’s my easy holiday getaway. The Hamptons is iconic. This shot was taken at The Lobster Roll, or should i say, “LUNCH.” I was inspired by the All-American colors, and the relaxed and elegant state of mind. I just got back from a week out East at Star Island and I can’t wait to share more with you.
I took my Audi R8 to Montauk this summer, and boy does this baby vrrooom fast. Summer never feels complete without a car and the open road. You just feel free, unstoppable, and more excited to explore than ever before. I was out east for a weekend work trip…but managed to squeeze in a ton of R&R. Montauk is a place I’ve been going to for years, but this time, it felt new, exciting, and special. With the usual stops, like dinner at Crow’s Nest and countless hours in the roman baths at Gurney’s, I also ventured out to Sag Harbor. We sailed away in a friend’s boat called The Kiwi in Sag Harbor out to the beautiful untouched shores of Gardiner’s Island. Some of the most peaceful beaches are out East…as are the memories.
