SOUTHAMPTON — Simply call this deja vu with pink and environmentally friendly accents.
The Christie’s auction dwelling gallery in Southampton threw off a very familiar vibe to guests arriving for a private dinner hosted by Sarah Wetenhall of Palm Beach’s Colony hotel.
Extra Palm Seashore culture news below.
“An Evening at Christie’s Southampton” took position Aug. 15 at the gallery on Pond Lane and celebrated The Colony’s pop-up cafe, which will be at the gallery.
The timing is auspicious, to be sure. Ongoing public will work initiatives all over the Palm Seashore hotel led to the decision for a summer months hiatus. The resort will reopen on Sept. 22.
The gallery was transformed into a tropical paradise — extremely reminiscent of the lodge — with seagrape paddle boards, cabana stripe chaise loungers, swaying palm trees and The Colony’s signature pink-and-eco-friendly beach front buggy with the fringe on top.
About that buggy.
About that buggy.
How did it get there? Did they transportation it on the back again of truck? Or did any person push 25 miles an hour up Interstate 95 and out the Extensive Island Expressway, fringe a-swinging and tiny horn a-beep-beeping for 5 times?
We are guessing the previous. But the latter features so lots of extra cocktail party anecdotes, no?
Within the gallery, tables were established with lush tropical blooms and monstera leaves, with options from Christie’s future 20/21st Century Artwork sale hanging on the partitions.
The menu included classics from Swifty’s, the beloved Upper East Side restaurant now reborn at The Colony, and rose wine and champagne from OutEast winery.
Nearly 50 folks attended, together with Debbie Bancroft, Wilbur and Hillary Geary Ross, Annelise Peterson, Christian Leone, Kim Heirston, Bob Colacello, hosts Andrew and Sarah Wetenhall, Mark Gilbertson, Tiffany Marks Isaacs, and Christie’s president Bonnie Brennan.
The Colony at Christie’s Southampton will be open 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Tuesday to Sunday, through Labor Working day.
It is at 1 Pond Lane, in the coronary heart of Southampton Village, shut to the Southampton Arts Center and the Peter Marino Foundation.
