With a store expansion at Katherine Tess and one-of-a-kind designs at Glenn Bradford, the East End is shining bright.
It’s an exciting time at Katherine Tess, which has capitalized on its popularity with a much-awaited expansion. A recently opened third store in the heart of Southampton’s Main Street joins the brand’s two prior locations. “Similar to our store in Westhampton, it has a beach-like aesthetic that’s inspired by island life on Capri and St. Barth’s,” says Tess. New collections from Vanita Rosa, Sunday St. Tropez, Roberto Demeglio, and Khai Khai are featured alongside a new product launch with Italian heritage jewelry line Spallanzani. Look out for trunk shows from jewelry brands Oromalia and Dada Arrigoni and Italian furrier Suprema. Katherine Tess Southampton, 69 Main St., 631-488-4988; katherinetess.com
ALL THE FEELS
With 25 years in the biz, Glenn Bradford has a knack for imbuing his pieces with emotional content. “I create jewelry with a deeper meaning,” he says. Some of his most heartfelt designs are the custom creations he makes for clients from their existing pieces. “The deepest of meanings comes when we adapt something that already has a history, using their sentimental things but designing it in a style that is all about that respective client. Every journey that I go on results in a one-of-a-kind design that is made for that person.” On August 19, Glenn Bradford hosts an Atelier Swarovski event in its Southampton shop. 10B Jobs Lane, Southampton, 631-400-9800; 279 Main St., Port Washington, 516-7671600; glennbradford.com
