LAMBERTSON TRUEX RETURNS - Spring 2019 In Stock Now!

SHOPPER TOTE - NAVY CALF - $795.00Richard Lambertson and John Truex are two creatives responsible for one of the brightest spots in American Accessory design from the last 25 years.  The duo's namesake collection - LAMBERTSON TRUEX - launched in 1998, a palette cleansing,  understated collection that leveled the luxury field at a time when Logos were leading the way in mainstream fashion.  Chic shoppers at luxury spots like Neiman Marcus quickly made the bags best sellers in the industry.  SHOPPER TOTE - WHITE CALF - $795.00

SHOPPER TOTE - COGNAC CALF - $795.00SHOPPER TOTE - BLACK CALF - $795.00

Lamberston Truex, the persons, went in-house at TIFFANY & CO. in 2009 to help launch that iconic jewelry house's first leather goods accessory collection.  They were STUNNING.

In 2015 the two joined SHINOLA, the Detroit based emporium backed by deep pockets and deeper ideals about Made In America products from bicycles to watches to leather goods.  John and Richard elevated the brands status by taking the creative direction reigns of all leather categories.

Lucky for luxury shoppers in late 2018 the guys are back with their own collection.  Lamberston Truex is BACK! 

A few months later and the duo have found their stride again giving us chic, sophisticated designs with subtle detailing.   Luxury accessories that will be classic today, tomorrow, and probably years from now when you appreciate your investment in these well priced handbags.  Made from the finest raw materials and hardware, designer shoppers will immediately recognize the value.

HOLIDAY SHOPPING - WARREN HAMLET

WARREN GENERAL STORE IN THE WARREN HAMLETI was in Litchfield County, Connecticut over the weekend to attend the Holiday Open House of the Warren Hamlet.    Made up of Privet House, Vol. 1 Antiques, The Warren General Store, and The Rooster Tail Inn, the little enclave is bustling with life!   What was once a quiet stretch of road between Sharon, Kent, New Millford, & Bantam is now a destination for shopping, eating, antiquing, and lodging!   PRIVET HOUSE IN THE WARREN HAMLET

The snow started to fall on Saturday afternoon as if it were scheduled by a director staging  a Perfect Holiday CALHOUN SUMRALL & CHRISTOPHE POURNYOpen House.   Customers had a great time tasting wine from different regions at each store.  What a talented crowd it was!  I ran into Wilson Henley and Bruce Glickman of Duane Street Antiques, & Calhoun Sumrall of Ralph Lauren.    Susanna Salk and Christophe Pourny were also in the house!  Susanna's latest book - Weekend Retreats is in book stores now. Christophe was sharing the news of the latest project in his busy antique restoration studio.  Pourny is the master of French Polish for NYC interior designers, and his latest project is transforming 12 mahogany doors for a New York City residence.  Everyone was in the mood to start their holiday shopping, and  there are a million good gift ideas at Privet House, from a vintage Rolex watch - to table settings, to a chew toy for your dog. WILSON HENLEY, RICHARD LAMBERTSON, & SUZANNE CASSANO If it has style - Privet house has it!   What started as a weekend project of design guru - Richard Lambertson, Privet house has quickly earned a place on the stylish weekenders and locals Saturday and Sunday schedules.   Lambertson was sharing the exciting news that Privet house has already added a second location in Greenwich, Connecticut.  Vol. 1 Antiques also had a crowd.  Owner Suzanne Cassano has developed a loyal following to her eclectic eye and super smart style!  You will always fall in love with at least one awesome find in her store that you will want to find a home for in your weekend house or even back in the city!  After much shopping and wine tasting, many guests, including myself ended up over at the Rooster Tail Inn for a wonderful dinner.   The Winter Wonderland setting was priceless!  The menu is rustic and delicious.  There are hearty options from land and sea- from Steak to Swordfish.  Husband and Wife Maureen and Cliff Jones transformed this historic property, giving it all the modern conveniences you are used to, while preserving a sense of a warm country inn.

THROW RUGS AT PRIVET HOUSE - LITTLE EDIE STYLEI look forward to many great dinners at the Rooster Tail.   Makes the cold winter weather a little more fun.  If you want the perfect weekend - shop, eat, drink, and then stay!  ROOSTER TAIL INN - SNOW COVEREDWhy not take a drive this weekend?  You can take care of some holiday shopping and enjoy a little R&R at the same time.    Who's dreading the winter?  Not me, now I have plans.  See you at The Warren Hamlet!

PRIVET HOUSE BACKYARD SALE

Looking for a great way to spend a Saturday this summer?  I have a great idea- head north to Litchfield County, Connecticut.   This leafy & Laidback part of Connecticut is home to a steady supply of antique, gift, and food shops. 

My favorite by far is Privet House.   This shop has the best collection of everything from bath and body lotions to wonderful art and photography books.   You might just find the most amazing vintage Rolex you didn't know you had to have!  Not to mention - anything that goes on a table from service to  linens to candles - Privet house has it.

Design guru Richard Lambertson is the man behind Privet House.   The co-founder of Lamberston Truex spends weekends in Litchfield County and was inspired to create Privet house.   We are SO glad he did!   Business partner Suzanne Cassano is also the owner of Vol. 1 Antiques just across the way here in the center of the small town of Warren.   Cassano's background in home furnishings adds the perfect antique yin to Lamberton's  fashion design yang.   The outcome is a magical mix of amazing finds and items you will fall in love with.   If you happen to be in the area as a houseguest - you have found the perfect destination to buy the appropriate thank-you gift to your host or hostess.  There is so much more to see and say - stay tuned for updates on Privet House.
