The Hamptons Shops
3×1 Denim (Closed)
44A Main St., Southampton
We've been pretty vocal about our love for 3x1 denim, so much so that we stocked the goop shop with some of our favorite pieces. That said, we wholeheartedly encourage an in-person visit to the Southampton boutique. It's one of two brick-and-mortar locations for the brand and offers the same made-to-order denim services as the Soho shop. The process goes something like this: get fitted, choose a denim from the 35-strong fabric wall (they source the finest raw and selvedge denim from all over the world), pick your stitch, thread, pocket lining, etc., then wait three weeks for your custom pair to be produced at the Mercer Street workshop.
20 Main St., East Hampton
Considering how very Hamptons-appropriate their shoes are (colorful pom-pom flats, neutral stilettos, espadrilles, etc.), it's pretty surprising that Aauazzura 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.
ATM Anthony Thomas Melillo
20 Newtown Lane, East Hampton
Anthony Thomas Melillo's eponymous line is the result of his original quest to create the perfect t-shirt. His loungewear collection exudes a simple, easy-to-wear aesthetic that offers ideal basics and weekend wear with sophisticated lines and quality fabrics. The East Hampton boutique stays true to the brand's DNA, with its sleek decor and neutral palette.
Austere At C/O Maidstone (Closed)
207 Main St., East Hampton
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.
AYR Beach House
25 Madison St., Sag Harbor
True to its name (AYR is short for All Year Round), this versatile collection offers clean-lined pieces perfect for any season. Founders Jac Cameron and Maggie Winter created the line to bring a mix of high-quality and affordability to the market. We're partial to the easy linen dresses, structured wrap coats, and (we must say) some of the best-fitting, perfectly broken-in jeans around.
44B Main St., Southampton
No matter what NYC fitness cult you subscribe to, exercise is a daily fixture out in the Hamptons and this 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.
67 Main St., East Hampton
While they have outposts around the country, Bluemercury's shop in East Hampton also offers Chantecaille and La Mer facials. You can find some of our favorite clean brands here, including Tata Harper and RMS Beauty.
Boo-Hooray Summer Rental
805 Montauk Hwy., Montauk
Husband-and-wife team Johan Kugelberg and Dr. Lila Wolfe, owners of the NYC archiving company Boo-Hooray, have brought their love of counter-culture to the East End this summer with this combined art boutique-gallery. The duo is showcasing some of their featured books and posters that preserve rare 20th and 21st century art and cultural movements, in tandem with hosting weekly art exhibits and events. Their inaugural exhibit, "Vintage Surf Posters & Ephemera," offers a dose of history with a side of nostalgia.
41 Main St., East Hampton
The epitome of the neighborhood bookstore, BookHampton has been a presence in East Hampton in various incarnations for more than 40 years. Now, thanks to a new owner and a top-to-bottom renovation last summer, 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.
14 Amagansett Sq., Amagansett
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.
