East Hampton Shops
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.

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.
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.
55 Main St., East Hampton
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 Rothwell (Closed)
66 Newtown Ln., East Hampton
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.
87 Newtown Ln., East Hampton
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.
10 Main St., East Hampton
For those who are familiar, one look inside at the thoughtful displays of French Stoneware bowls, recycled paper stationery, and Adina Mills rings and you can tell this gem of a shop is curated by the same husband-and-wife team that brought us Brook Farm General Store. Since shuttering their Williamsburg shop a few years back, they've been hard at work on their own homewares line, Tourne, which is also well represented here.
66 Newtown Lane, East Hampton
Fresh picks from the best high-end designers.
78 Main St., East Hampton
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.
