Here’s my WSJ piece on the thriving market in used Kellys, Birkins and Chanel 2.55s
People always ask me what I like about The Hamptons – is it the chi-chi restaurants, the chic shopping, the smart people or the spectacular houses? Actually it’s none of the above. What I like about Long Island (for I do not live in what is technically termed ‘The Hamptons’) can be summed up in these pictures…..
the dock at the end of my road….
and then, obviously there are a couple of totally Hampton’s like things which, inevitably, one can’t help but be fascinated by….
and well, I’m just going to say it – though it does me no favours whatsoever…..
the second hand Hermes bag store in Southampton – yes they really are Hermes (and Chanel and Celine and Bottega) and yes these guys source them from everywhere – no website yet – why? Because they are TOO DAMN BUSY to build one…I know it’s shallow, but visit if you can, because it’s a wonderful historic treasure trove of bags (as they used to be….)
