To celebrate the opening of the East Hampton boutique, Gucci and Elizabeth Saltzman hosted a night to remember. The incredible Saltzman estate was the perfect location for the event, and the property was decorated impeccably with tented lounge areas, cozy fire pits, and various lawn games to be enjoyed by guests. The party marked Gucci’s permanent return to The Hamptons, and the event was a true celebration.
The party began just before sunset, with guests arriving at the gorgeous location to find games, incredible food options, and several impressive spaces to chat and mingle. DJ sets by Tygapaw and Mark Ronson – marking his return to the stage after nearly two years – were a hit, and guests flocked to the elevated dance floor as the night progressed.
Trays filled with fresh oysters from Bostwick’s Chowder House, delicious homemade pizzas fresh out of the oven from Amber Waves Farm, and platters of decadent donuts from Grindstone Coffee & Donuts were on rotation. If that wasn’t enough, there was even a Carvel ice cream truck stationed at the event for guests to enjoy.
Special guests included Drew Barrymore, Grace Gummer, Kiki Layne, Evan Mock, Emily Lind, and Savannah Smith, and it truly felt like the event of the season. The night was filled with laughter, dancing, and lots and lots of glasses of strawberry frosé.
Highlights of the evening included the incredible pool decorated with floating flower arrangements and sparkling lights, summer-inspired cocktails crafted with local wines from Wöllfer, and the detailed decor at every corner of the event.
The night was truly unforgettable, and it was the perfect way to celebrate returning to normalcy after months of limited social contact. It was a flawless East Hampton evening, and an incredible way to kick off the summer and celebrate the new Gucci retail space in The Hamptons.
