The only hip place to be this weekend was on the coast, Montauk to be specific, at the Crow’s Nest for a party hosted by Laird Hamilton and Chanel. As you may or may not already know, Laird Hamilton is the spokesperson for Chanel’s J12 Marine Watch. He and his entire family came out to promote the popular wrist watch while also celebrating the publication of “The Wave,” by Susan Casey.
The day began with paddle board lessons, given by Laird, on Montauk Bay. Can you even imagine? An opportunity to learn from the best! That’s priceless! The more relaxed east coasters watched from afar as they enjoyed lobster rolls washed down with watermelon coolers on the lawn.
The guest list for the evening portion of the event was out of this world. It included Richard Gere, Jimmy Buffet, Anjelica Houston, Rachel Weisz, Bruce Weber, Tabitha Simmons, Julian Schnabel, Anh Duong and so many more….
