Summer has arrived—and with it, a new lineup of fashion finds.
Vilebrequin teams up with Karl Lagerfeld for a capsule collection of blue hues and swim favorites.
Oscar de la Renta goes beach-chic in a new collaboration with Flagpole. The swim collection consists of six elegant, fashion-forward looks, from a color-block one-piece to a ruffled off-the-shoulder bikini with high-waisted shorts. With prices ranging from $450 to $500, each suit is an investment piece worth wearing season after season. Michelle Farmer Collaborate, 2491 Montauk Hwy., Bridgehampton, 604- 1850.
When two French brands come together, expect great things. Case in point, the Eres by Nupié collaboration, combining Eres’s quintessential prints and colors—from mosaic patterns to chartreux—with Nupie’s free-spirited laceup sandals. The result? A summer sandal to take you from day to play. The laces are interchangeable, so you can get an array of looks from a single pair. 55 Main St., East Hampton, 604-5544
Online shop AYR is popping up in Sag Harbor, bringing its chic basics to Hamptons clients. The shop—open through September—is selling cult favorites including denim and linen dresses and shorts and jumpsuits. 25 Madison St., Sag Harbor
Tony Melillo—purveyor of luxurious basics—opens his first permanent East End outpost this season. The new store, in East Hampton, is the perfect display for his pre-fall collection exclusives like camo sweat suits and T-shirt dresses. He even designed the furniture to fit his line’s modern, minimal aesthetic—making the boutique a full Melillo experience. 20 Newtown Lane, East Hampton; atmcollection.com
Intermix’s East End locations welcome stunning new pieces for summer. In East Hampton, the Talitha line offers breezy bohemian separates, while No. 21 consists of trendy feminine styles. In Southampton, Dion Lee’s airy yet architectural silhouettes and Thierry Mugler’s scuba-style dresses are must-haves. We suggest Dion Lee’s gingham top and No. 21’s seersucker mules for a look that’s completely Hamptons-chic. 87 Main St., East Hampton, 907-8025; 64 Main St., Southampton, 283-8510
The French Rivera’s favorite swimwear brand Vilebrequin teamed up with the legendary Karl Lagerfeld—creative mastermind behind Chanel and Fendi— for an eight-piece limited-edition collection of men’s and women’s pieces. Featuring vibrant blues mixed with pops of black and white, Lagerfeld lends an unmistakably modern touch to the brand’s European-style swimsuits. 30 Main St., East Hampton, 344-5970
Mixology pulls out all the stops for Hamptons style-setters this summer. Shop new brands like boho Ban Jara, relaxed So-Cal tops and dresses from Rails, and an exclusive partnership with Jet by John Eshaya of distressed and embroidered T-shirts and jackets. 148 Main St., Westhampton Beach, 684-0040
Three of the Hamptons’ finest shops receive highly anticipated expansions and additions just in time for the start of the season. Blue1 (2397 Montauk Hwy., Bridgehampton, 237- 1796) welcomes lifestyle pieces and accessories to its newly expanded space, featuring Native Ken eyewear and Joie DiGiovanni jewelry. Michelle Farmer Collaborate (2491 Montauk Hwy., 604-1850) adds custom-made pillows and blankets from Morocco as well as Currey and Company lighting to her home collection. And Tenet’s new lifestyle shop, Tenet Concept (95 Main St., Southampton, 353- 3453), will take over Mark Humphrey’s old art gallery space, selling jewelry, accessories, and apothecary treasures from Byredo and Lola James Harper.
