You may have seen Wyatt Koch at one of Palm Beach’s elite events carrying the dance floor dressed to the nines, playing tennis at Trump’s Mar-a-Lago, or enjoying the serenity of his farm in Florida. Palm Beach has taken notice of Wyatt’s charm and bold fashion sense since he moved here from New York City in 2006. Today, the son of renowned businessman William (Bill) Koch has some big news to announce coming up this winter. Altima sat down with Wyatt for a Q&A and we are excited to share it with our readers!
Altima: What events do you look forward to the most each season?
Wyatt: GOG Halloween Party, Lily Pulitzer Beach Bash, Paradise Casino Gala, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Awareness Gala, Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s (LLS) Man & Woman of the Year, and of course, POSH Palm Beach, which I will co-chair this year.
Altima: Where do you enjoy spending your weekends in Palm Beach?
Wyatt: I like to get out to my farm on weekends. When I am in town, I like to play tennis at Mar-a-Lago, shop on Worth Avenue, grab lunch at Nick & Johnnie’s, Café Sapori or Bice, or just relax at the beach.
Altima: What are your Top 3 restaurants on the island?
Wyatt: Café L’ Europe, Echo and Palm Beach Grill.
Altima: What is your favorite store on Worth Ave?
Wyatt: Neiman Marcus, and my sales associate, Michael Diaz, is great.
Altima: We heard that you have some big news coming up in December 2015. Care to dish with Altima readers?
Wyatt: I have recently decided to pursue my lifelong passion for fashion by starting a fashion line. Wyatt Ingraham LLC was launched a few months ago. We are very excited about the upcoming line of men’s shirts. I am also excited that 10% of all profits will be donated to charity. You can learn more about the clothing line and my inspirations at www.wyattingraham.com
Altima: What should we expect from your first collection?
Wyatt: The first collection will be exclusively men’s shirts. We have a fabulous line about to be released, with bold colors and inspired patterns. These are high quality, American made shirts for the impeccably dressed man. These shirts will grab attention and inspire the men who wear them to be bold.
Stay tuned, we plan to follow-up with Wyatt in a few months when he officially débuts Wyatt Ingraham!
Designs coming soon to www.wyattingraham.com.
