The Tower at Carnegie Abbey Hosts Fashion Event for Gentleman Connoisseurs


The fabulous new Tower at The Carnegie Abbey Club hosted a by-invitation-only ECC and Friends Newport trunk show featuring Boston's bespoke menswear makers, Genuine Bespoke by ECC.  Fashions on view around the pool and cabanas for Carnegie Abbey members and guests showcased bespoke hand-sewn menswear.

Bespoke’s hand sewn Italian shoes were featured and explained, as were Cartier and other fine watches by Grenon’s of Newport, neckwear, cigars, and spirits. Tapas were served, tours of the stunning Tower were available, and sitting by the fabulous pool and cabanas was de rigeur.

On hand from ECC bespoke were chief designer Jeff Lahens, Tracey Salomon-White, and Danielle Grethel.  Grenon’s of Newport’s V. Raymond Grenon talked with Shawn Harris, CEO of bespoke, and Amy Patt of Guilded Boston, an emerging designer showroom, laughed with models Chris and Chase, and with Michael Cahill.  Jetmira Kaziu displayed cigars from Cigar Masters fit for a king, and Amy Cerulli, John Cerulli, Joseph Brousseau and Alice Brousseau, were ordering gentlemanly treasures and handmade shirts. Bob Cenzalone mixed passionate Brazilian pineapple punches for guests.
