Long Island, New York – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine
The picturesque Sunset Beach, a luxury boutique hotel owned by André Balazs and nestled on the sands of Shelter Island, Long Island, was the perfect setting to celebrate the launch of the Harry Winston’s Ocean Sport Collection.
Featuring men’s and women’s timepieces crafted in Harry Winston’s exclusive Zalium alloy, the Ocean Sport Collection is perfect for summer seaside wear. The Ocean Sport Chronograph and Ocean Sport Quartz for ladies and the Ocean Sport Chronograph, Ocean Sport Automatic and Ocean Sport Chronograph Limited Edition for men, represent the perfect blend of athletic spirit and cutting edge.
After guests arrived from Manhattan on a 45-minute StndAIR seaplane flight, they attended an evening filled with cocktails complimentary of Perrier-Jouët and a dinner served in the hotel’s vineyard, which provided breathtaking views of the ocean. An impressive 80-foot-long table seating 75 VIP guests was expressly constructed for the event.
The highlight of the evening was the live creation of an artwork by André Saraiva while DJ Paul Sevigny played an exclusive music selection. The dinner menu was specially created by Mark Zeitouni, executive chef at The Standard, Miami and Sunset Beach, Shelter Island. After dinner and dessert, guests were treated to a private performance by The Virgins, which included unreleased songs “Prima Materia” and “Venus in Chains” from their upcoming album.
