The Hamptons Guide

goop

There’s an influx of great new stores and restaurants in the Hamptons every summer, and this year is no different. Many of these we’ve tried ourselves—the rest, we’ve heard, are just as great. Here’s what’s new (and a few things that are just new to us), along with all the classics.

Aquazzura_2resized

Aquazzura

20 Main St., East Hampton | 631.527.0007

Considering how very Hamptons-appropriate their shoes are (colorful pom-pom flats, neutral stilettos, espadrilles, etc.), it's pretty surprising that Aquazzura hasn't had a pop-up shop in the Hamptons until now. In addition to the shoes, the interior is every bit the summery shop—dark wood floors, bright white furniture, and hot-pink floral wallpaper.

austere

Austere At C/O Maidstone

207 Main St., East Hampton | 844.287.8373

Quite possibly the most thrilling of this season's happenings is Austere's pop-up at C/O The Maidstone hotel. If you think about it, the partnership between the Nordic-themed inn and the Scandi-centric retail operation makes perfect sense, as the for-sale selection of Artek chairs, Skultuna brass accessories, and Alexander Lervik light fixtures all feel like an extension of the rooms.

shop_bandier

Bandier

44B Main St., Southampton | 631.488.4304

No matter what NYC fitness cult you subscribe to, exercise is a daily fixture out in the Hamptons and this new shop is dedicated to outfitting the endeavor. Owner Jennifer Bandier gathers luxe brands like Live The Process, Lucas Hugh, and Adidas by Stella McCartney along with the requisite Beats headphones and Nikes to finish off the outfit.

bazaar_botanica_1

Botanica Bazaar

14 Amagansett Sq., Amagansett | 631.267.5660

This clean, minimalist beauty shop in Amagansett square (you'll know it by the pink neon pharmacy cross—a nod to French pharmacies) stocks its light pine shelves with all the best luxury clean beauty lines—RMS Beauty, Tata Harper, Shiva Rose, and more. An added bonus is that the owners, model Leilani Bishop and Bethany Mayer (of Surf Bazaar), are year-round residents—so there's a permanence to the shop that you won't find in summer-only pop-ups.

BookHampton_1

BookHampton

41 Main St., East Hampton | 631.324.4939

The epitome of the neighborhood bookstore, BookHampton has been a presence in East Hampton in various incarnations for the past 40 years. Now, thanks to a new owner and a top-to-bottom renovation, it’s introducing even more titles and space for special literary events and guest speakers. The generous teen-lit section is a gold mine for keeping the 12-to-18 set occupied.

bridgehampton florist

Bridgehampton Florist

2400 Main St., Bridgehampton | 631.537.7766

For most, florals are a deeply personal matter of taste, and it takes a thorough, skilled florist to nail it every time. Luckily, this beloved flower-and-gifts shop has two: owners Michael Grim and Jim Osburn. While they’ll gladly put together a beautiful monotone bouquet, their specialty is color—think violet and fuchsia orchids, magenta roses, and ombre hydrangeas—which they deftly apply to arrangements and centerpieces of every size and style.

Cabana_4

Cabana Southampton

53 Jobs Ln., Southampton | 631.353.3234

For the second summer in a row, Cabana Southampton is returning with an East End pop-up. The clean, minimalist store is known for their great luxury clothing pieces and home décor geared toward summer, with brands like Matt Bernson, Sandoval, Anine Bing, and Assembly lining the shelves.

CopiousRow

Copious Row

27 Washington St., Sag Harbor | 631.808.3600

Complete with its own little garden and plenty of history (the space dates all the way back to the 1800s), there's something for everyone at Copious Row's inaugural brick-and-mortar shop. The largely exclusive assortment skews kind of masculine, ranging from Tom Dixon kitchen tools, to Finlay and Co. sunglasses, to antique-inspired Kent pocket combs.

BlueMercury_2

Bluemercury

67 Main St., East Hampton | 631.324.0330

While they have are outposts around the country, Bluemercury's new shop in East Hampton also offers Chantecaille and La Mer facials. You can also find some of our favorite clean brands here, including Tata Harper and RMS Beauty.

figue_2

Figue

55 Main St., East Hampton | 631-527-5111

Stephanie von Watzdorf founded her travel-inspired, “gypsy-meets-jet-set” lifestyle brand, Figue—named for the fig, her favorite fruit from her native Italy—after graduating from Parsons The New School for Design and working with fashion powerhouses like Giorgio Armani and Yves Saint Laurent. The result: a full range of separates and accessories tinged with various cultural references that somehow manage to form a totally cohesive collection. The East Hampton location is actually Figue's only brick-and-mortar outside NYC—and while it's easy to find them online, it's worth popping into the shop, too, as they usually reserve a few exclusive pieces for in-person customers.

gail

Gail Rothwell

66 Newtown Ln., East Hampton | 631.324.6666

Since 2007, Gail Rothwell has been stocking pretty much all of the important designers (Lanvin, Stella McCartney, Isabel Marant, etc.). It's a great place to know about in East Hampton, where high-end, multi-label boutiques are harder to come by than you may think.

harborbooks

Harbor Books

20 Main St., Sag Harbor | 631.808.3401

Even though Harbor Books is new to town (this summer is their first), it already feels like an old mainstay; the cozy space is the perfect retreat on a rainy afternoon, and littles can find hours of entertainment in the kids section. Owner Taylor Berry stocks the shelves with a fine balance of old classics and new releases, and she's packed out the schedule with readings and book signings throughout the summer, bringing in everyone from Jimmy Fallon to Kate Betts to goop pal Ali Wentworth.

HarpersBooks

Harper’s Books

87 Newtown Ln., East Hampton | 631.324.1131

The art scene in the Hamptons gets bigger every year, so it’s only fitting that the collectors and artists that migrate here each summer should have a New York City-quality art bookstore. Harper’s hosts exhibitions of emerging artists year-round, and they have an original, yet thorough, selection of books on rare photography, art, and literature available. It’s also a great stop if you need a last-minute hostess gift.

HeidiKlein_1

Heidi Klein

76B Jobs Ln., Southampton | 631.353.3422

Started by two women (Heidi Gosman and Penny Klein) in Notting Hill in 2002, this British-based resort-wear brand and shop now has a handful of locations around the globe, but this is the only Stateside spot. Come here for your weekend wardrobe: halter one-piece suits, kaftans, beach bags, and jumpsuits.

HomeNature_4

Homenature

19 Pond Ln., Southampton | 631.259.2272

This natural-materials-focused furniture and décor shop has two beautifully appointed shops (the second location is on Main Street), rife with everything from plush couches to elegant hostess gifts (with a bit of vintage sprinkled in for good measure). While Homenature’s roots are firmly planted in Southampton, the Manhattan store is a great option for city dwellers.

JaysonHome_1

Jayson Home

3 Madison St., Sag Harbor | 631.899.4994

Chicago-based furniture/décor/botany institution Jayson Home has stayed put in its home town for the entirety of its existence, which is why its summer pop-up shop in Sag Harbor is a really big deal. The historic 18th-century building which houses the jewel-toned tufted couches, beechwood coffee tables, stacks of candles, and piles of plush pillows, used to be the town liquor store, and a whaling supply shop before that. We especially like the club room in the back—with its midnight-blue walls and gilded accents, it feels refreshingly un-Hamptons (in the best possible way).

JenniKayne_1

Jenni Kayne

2 Main St., Southampton | 631.268.2144

This summer store—a pop-up in Southampton—is classic Jenni Kayne: housed in an airy, open space with neutral and white decor, it offers a tight edit of classic apparel and the latest summer collection, plus apothecary and ceramic pieces for the home. (Her permanent locations include the Brentwood Country Mart and West Hollywood in LA, as well as Santa Barbara.)

KnockoutBeauty_2

Knockout Beauty

2400 Montauk Hwy, Bridgehampton

Cayli Cavaco Reck’s background may be in fashion and interiors (her resumé includes stints at Elle Décor and House and Garden) but her understanding of the importance of beauty—beauty products, to be exact—goes beyond skin-deep. It started with her over-forty-and-loving-it Instagram account, Knocking on Forty, and manifested into a free-standing pop-up shop right in the heart of Bridgehampton. The whitewashed space is neatly stocked with R and Co., Earth tu Face, and Smith and Cult, plus #goodcleangoop favorites like Pursoma, Vintner’s Daughter, Moon Juice, and Odacite.

TheLine_1

The Line

154 Main St., Amagansett | 631.528.7236

We're big fans of Vanessa Traina Snow’s permanent brick-and-mortar shops in NYC and LA, so we were excited to hear that she picked the Hamptons for her first seasonal store. Similar to the other two retail locations, the pop-up space is designed like an apartment you can shop in real life, from the rugs, to the shelving, to the beauty products in the bathroom.

L'Objet à la Plage

L’Objet à la Plage

9 Main St., Southampton | 631.259.2644

This is the first stand-alone shop for home brand L'Objet, and while luxe, globally sourced décor and objets-d'art are founder-slash-curator Elad Yifrach's specialty, there's plenty on offer that's unique to the Hamptons: think one-of-a-kind Fortuny surfboards, Martone Cycling bikes, and a home fragrance collab with Obeah NYC.

LoveAdorned_3 Resized

Love Adorned

156 Main St., Amagansett | 631.267.7720

This spinoff from the flagship in Nolita (there's also one in Los Angeles) has a cool, beachy, vintage vibe. You'll find all the things you've come to expect from this impeccably curated spot: exquisite and edgy jewelry, beautiful ceramics for the kitchen, and subtly exotic home goods.

shop_lullanest

Lullanest

78 Main St., East Hampton | 631.604.6563

From gifts for newborns to supreme everyday basics (bottles, strollers, and diapers), this is a one-stop shop for all things baby. This being the Hamptons and all, the selection is definitely of the luxe variety, featuring brands like Bugaboo, Stokke, Ergo, and Uppababy, all hand-picked for their looks as well as their durability.

lurk

LURKshop

28 W. Water St., Sag Harbor | 631.919.5000

Not only is this the sole beauty-centric luxury boutique in Sag Harbor (if not all of Long Island), it also happens to focus strictly on all-natural, USA-made products. In addition to Lurk, their house line of organic perfumes, the brand roster isn't particularly deep, with just a few dozen standbys—like May Lindstrom, True Nature Botanicals, and Aster & Bay—but each has been thoroughly vetted by owner/perfumer Anne Nelson Sanford. Dry goods-wise, there's shirting by California Tailor, Shawn Burke bags, and Takara jewelry.

shopping_Monc

Monc XIII

40 Madison St., Sag Harbor | 631.808.3333

Monc 13 is an interior design store stocking eclectic, elegant, and extremely livable antique and vintage furniture, plus smaller accessories for the home.

shopping_Monogram

The Monogram Shop

7 Newtown Ln., East Hampton | 631.329.3379

This long-standing favorite is the place to get any and every home good monogrammed: towels, linens, cushions, you name it, they'll monogram it.

shop_netaporter

Net-a-Porter

While there’s no brick-and-mortar location, NAP is offering same-day delivery to the Hamptons. Place your order by 10am, and you’ll have it by dinner.

oliver_peoples_hamptons_1

Oliver Peoples

53 Newtown Ln., East Hampton | 631.329.4318

Consider Oliver Peoples' Hamptons store the East Coast counterpart to their Malibu optical boutique. After a successful first year as a popup, it's now here to stay, in a space that was intentionally kept minimal so the focus is exclusively on the frames. Window installations by emerging artist Rosha Yaghmai are a subtle nod to their Californian heritage.

shop_orlebar

Orlebar Brown

23 Newtown Ln., East Hampton | 631.604.5656

This British brand of tailored swimwear has made its first foray onto American soil with their summer pop-up in East Hampton. You’ll find mix-and-match swimwear for women, classic boardshorts for guys, and all sorts of bright, preppy basics for casual beach days. They also have a few Martone bicycles for rent.

peloton

Peloton

53 Main St., East Hampton

The concept here is really cool: Splurge on a high-tech Peloton stationary bike (under $2,000), and then tune into their indoor cycling classes (Tracy Anderson, cover your eyes!) anytime you want (you can stream a live class, or watch one that’s been pre-recorded at their Chelsea studio) for $39/month. Whether you’re a spin fan or not, the attached boutique has great luxury sports gear from brands like Beyond Yoga, Pret-a-Surf, VPL, and the Hamptons-based Pheel.

PilgrimSurf

Pilgrim Surf Supply

4 Amagansett Sq., Amagansett | 631.267.3598

The surfboards at this new shop are hands-down stunning—they could almost double as art. There’s also plenty of surf-inspired beach basics for men and women, including Vans, bikinis, and shorts. (Basically, it’s all stuff you’d want your significant other to wear at the beach.)

shopping_PinkChicken

The Pink Chicken

14 Amagansett Square, Amagansett | 631.267.5340

Stacey Fraser’s Amagansett shop is full of her designs for cute and comfy play clothes for kids, featuring her very own custom-made prints.

Rube

Rube

156 Main St., Amagansett | 631.267.6117

Rube carries a small, carefully curated selection of goods for men and women—mainstay brands include James Colarusso, Loup Charmant, Chimala, and R13, among their other excellent finds.

ruby beets

Ruby Beets Old & New

25 Washington St., Sag Harbor | 631.899.327

This long-standing antiques store recently relocated to a space that once housed a silent movie theater in Sag Harbor, though its selection of pre-loved furniture and décor and art is just as good. The "new" in Old & New refers to Domestic Science: Ruby Beets' own line of customizable furniture and textiles.

Tenet_1

Tenet

91 Main St., Southampton | 631.377.3981

This shop is housed in the former BookHampton building, in a re-imagined space with exposed brick walls, lived-in wood flooring, and a pressed-tin ceiling. Clothes from brands like A.P.C. and Helmut Lang hang from industrial copper pipes, alongside a tight selection of art pieces, books, and furniture.

Tiina

Tiina The Store

216 Main St., Amagansett | 631.267.6200

While Tiina has been in the Hamptons since 2012, we never realized it was there, until Michael Kors tipped us off to the treasures inside. It’s owned by a former stylist, who deftly mixes pieces from Crippen, The Elder Statesman, and Dosa, in a primarily black, white, and navy palette. There are tons of great gifts here, including Comme des Garçons polka-dot wallets, baby vests from Makie, and simple Iittala glasses.

tory_sport_1

Tory Sport

47 Newtown Ln., East Hampton | 631.907.9150

Tory Burch has been in the Hamptons for years, but this year, she's converted the traditional store in East Hampton to a Tory Sport. Much like the core line, Burch's athletic wear is colorful, a bit preppy, and supremely wearable, especially in the casual Hamptons. Come here to stock up on tennis whites, practical swimsuits, and loungewear that's totally okay to wear to dinner.

turpan

Turpan

55 Main St. #3, East Hampton | 631.324.2444

Turpan houses an impressive edit of eclectic, luxurious must-haves: There's charcoal-infused apothecary products from Bonchotan, leather goods from Comme des Garçons, beautifully minimalist serving pieces, jewelry, and more. (This is the companion shop to the one in Los Angeles.)

what-goes-around

What Goes Around Comes Around

48 Main St., East Hampton | 631.324.0874

WGACA is a vintage store for people who hate vintage shopping, meaning everything on offer is a bona fide treasure so there's never a need to rummage for the good stuff. For its first summer in the Hamptons, founders Gerard Maione and Seth Weisser stocked the small but mighty shop with Hermès, Chanel, Missoni, and stacks on stacks of vintage Levi's.

WYETH - Sag

Wyeth

3654 Montauk Hwy, Sagaponack | 631.604.2103

Wyeth is a definite go-to for interior designers, both pros and wannabes. Though they’re known for unbelievable, museum-quality antiques—their specialty is mid-century—they also carry own-branded furniture and fixtures. The Sagaponack location is housed in a store that used to belong to local hero Ted Meyers, who collected antiques and sold his own wicker furniture out of the space for years.

shop_zimmermann

Zimmerman East Hampton

27 Newtown Ln., East Hampton | 631.604.6291

Though this Australian label may take most of its inspiration from Bondi Beach, the aesthetic works perfectly out in the Hamptons: At this summer-only pop-up, you can shop a full expression of the brand, from its floral patterned bikinis to ethereal, floor-skimming gowns.

kes_3

KES NYC

10A Jobs Ln., Southampton | 631.353.3235

Lia Kes grew up in a kibbutz in Northern Israel, learning to sew at an early age in the community's shared workshop. While she's very into luxurious fabrics (silks, leather, etc.), her shapes are inspired by her simple upbringing—comfortable, easy, and minimalist. In short, just the kind of breezy beachwear that's perfect for the Hamptons; this is her only shop outside the city.
