Just as summer comes to a close, Rebag made it back out to the Hamptons, this time to the iconic Montauk hot spot where the music is rocking, the crowd is beautiful, and the view even more so – The Surf Lodge.
On August 25 and 26, Rebag hosted a pop-up shop on The Surf Lodge’s sandy shores, bringing to the hip crowd a selection of the best handbags that could possibly adorn your arm. From Gucci to Fendi, Chanel to Loewe, bikini-clad women shopped and danced with us while The Surf Lodge’s Summer Concert Series was going on live. Exclusive to pop-up shoppers and TSL guests was the chance to win a striking Rebag x Maison Gris Shark Tote, a Louis Vuitton Neverfull bag from the Rebag collection which is custom-painted with a ferocious shark design.
Bayli, the new and upcoming hip hop artist and rapper of which PAPER magazine raved over as the best summer artist, took the stage on Saturday night with an electric guitar in hand. Afterward, R&B artist Ravyn Lenae crooned to an imbibing crowd and also stopped by the pop-up with her very own Rebag handbag in tow, a Louis Vuitton Papillon bag.
After the two acts, the Rebag team and your favorite fashion insiders took to the outdoor deck to indulge in The Surf Lodge’s vibrant dinner menu. Classic summer fare ranged from a never-ending raw bar of lobster, clams, shrimp and more, leading into the most moist and delicious nine spice chicken to a mild yet savory grilled bass. Of course, no dinner is complete without dessert and a signature cocktail customized just for Rebag – the Mellow Yellow, made of vodka, lemonade, and in our signature Rebag-yellow no less.
On the final day, Rebag aficionados returned to The Surf Lodge again to wrap up purchases they almost made the day before (who can resist?) along with a slew of newcomers who came, saw, and shopped. The Surf Lodge is loaded with Rebagers who aren’t afraid of impulse purchases – when you see the one, you have to strike fast. As day slowly turned to golden hour and then into the soft evening, the big time act of the weekend, AlunaGeorge, came onto to the scene to sing her top hits to an enchanted and excited crowd. All in all? Just about the best weekend you could ask for!
Thanks to everyone who came out, and to those who couldn’t show, don’t forget – thousands of bags on our website are just ready and waiting to be shopped by you. Hamptons, we’ll catch you next summer!
