We’re going to take it as read that Mr Matthew Moneypenny will be relaxing this summer. He spent the past decade heading up high-end image agency Trunk Archive and, since 2015, its parent company Great Bowery; he split from the latter in May this year (though he remains one of its investors). Given that we’re just about to head into peak Hamptons season, his timing is ideal – ultimately, whatever comes next from the storied agent and entrepreneur, it’s likely to be preceded by a well-earned holiday. Mr Moneypenny’s preferred location at this time of year is the town of Southampton, where, incidentally, he has just finished a two-year “gut” renovation of a small historic cottage near the centre of town. (There are no pictures yet, but knowing Mr Moneypenny, we’re sure it’s camera friendly.) Clearly, we’re going to be spending the next few months feeling rather jealous of him. If you’d rather work through those feelings in a more productive way, scroll down for Mr Moneypenny’s recommendations of the best places to go and the most interesting things to do in Southampton this summer.
