The Hamptons Shops
A Wild Dove
90 2nd House Rd., Montauk
A Wild Dove is one of those rare-gem boutiques that truly reflects how we live right now. In other words, a store that marries lifestyle and fashion with ritual and wellness. A trip to A Wild Dove’s summer residency space might involve trying multiple pairs of Linda Farrow x The Attico aviators, replenishing your Moon Juice Sex Dust stock, splurging on a Live the Process playsuit, or buying a Caroline Robert’s sculpture. Moreover, store founder Lynn Levoy hosts a series of activations and panels like crystal workshops and meditation sessions for kids.
17 Newtown Ln., East Hampton
We don’t call out every luxury retail outpost in the Hamptons—there are many—but the new Gucci store merits a mention. After several pop-ups and collaborations in the area over the last few years, the born-in-Florence brand has committed to a permanent space on Newtown Lane. Like any Gucci outpost, the interior is wildly cool. Ocean-blue moiré walls, plush velvet armchairs, and gorgeous brass fixtures frame the merchandise, which happens to be a Hamptons-specific capsule: coastal blue leather trims and Hamptons emblems cover the range of bucket bags and totes you’ll find inside, plus the usual edit of clothing and accessories.
11 Madison St., Sag Harbor
Between the Wölffer Estate Vineyard, stables, and restaurant, the Wölffer family have quite the footprint in the Hamptons. Joey Wölffer’s namesake boutique is a local staple for beachy dresses, chunky jewelry, and the softest suede totes and bucket bags. This store is the perfect dip-in-and-dip-out spot for last-minute gifts, easy outfits, and especially gorgeous vintage jewelry.
38 Jobs Ln., Southampton
Fivestory’s cavernous Madison Avenue space offers the kind of boutique shopping experience that’s historically unique to NYC; deeply curated, customer-centric, and cutting edge. New owner Karen Murray has expanded the store’s reach and opened a Southampton pop-up on Job’s Lane. Expect an expansive designer line-up of casual, beachy items and swimwear, personal shopping, beautiful vintage pieces, and a breezy, nautical-themed interior.
1 Main St., East Hampton
One is a sprawling new 5,000-square-foot concept store that keeps things interesting with a revolving series of pop-ups and exhibits. The idea centers on curating art, fashion, and lifestyle products under one roof. We love the mix of billowy Anna Mason blouses, Cynthia Rowley dresses, Gems de Mer jewels, August Table dinnerware, and Roll & Hill furniture, amongst many others.
4 Amagansett Sq., Amagansett
Retail throughout the Hamptons has always been on point, but every summer, a bigger, better assortment has us swiping our cards with regrettable frequency. Ulla Johnson—queen of the chic ruffle and billowing sleeve—has opened her second brick-and-mortar store in Amagansett Square. The store has the same warm, treasure-chest feel as the Bleecker Street location, complete with Moroccan rugs, plenty of leather poufs, and jugs of wildflowers complementing the main event: those dresses. Prepare to leave laden with Johnson’s signature tied-with-a-ribbon blush bags.
goop Sag Harbor
4 Bay St., Sag Harbor
Summer has arrived, which means goop MRKT is back in our now-signature space in Sag Harbor for the third year in a row.
Coffee + Flowers
696 Montauk Hwy., Montauk
This summer, Elk owner Claire Chan is bringing her velvety brews way, way out east to Montauk and making our morning wake-up even sweeter by pairing up with Popup Florist to open up shop right outside the Cynthia Rowley store.
Bluestone Lane Beach Collective
786 Montauk Hwy., Montauk
COVID-19 update: Temporarily closed for the season. In New York City, Australians have become the new MVPs of coffee, and this summer, one of our favorite Aussie cafés is bringing a bit of Melbourne to Montauk, which means more flat whites than cappuccinos, plus weird-but-good drinks, like beet lattes—and you can’t go wrong with the reliably satisfying avocado smash. Bluestone Lane is also a full retail store with Australian fashion brands, like neoprene totes from Chuchka, bikinis from Matteau Swim, and sunglasses from Pared Eyewear.
goop Sag Harbor
4 Bay St., Sag Harbor
COVID-19 update: Open from February 3rd. We’re back in town—Sag Harbor, to be exact. It’s our second Hamptons pop-up, and we’ve made over a traditional cottage with the help of designers Kate McCollough and Max Zinser. The result is goop’s version of the world’s chicest general store—a bright and beautiful place where you can find Prada bags, summer shoes (specifically selected by our team for the Hamptons), a freestanding Kohler bathtub full of G.Soak bath remedies, a goop-exclusive Cynthia Rowley collection of swimwear, and anything else you could possibly need for a perfect Hamptons summer. There’s more than just fashion and beauty, too: The store's garden will be stocked with freshly baked baguettes from Eli Zabar, plus potted herbs and ripe tomatoes, in case a sudden urge to have a picnic at the beach should strike.
