Get ready for some serious heat this summer, and by heat I am referring to the hottest new shops and looks to come to the Hamptons this season. From new stores to summer pop-ups, you can forget all about 5th Ave and Soho —so 2020 — as you shop throughout the Hamptons this summer. Scroll through for the best and newest places for where to find the cutest styles to wear as you hit the beach, the town, and, of course, even more shops!
This summer, get ready for East Hampton to be the new Upper East Side. With the opening of all of your favorite luxury stores, you’ll be swapping a trek on the Jitney back into the city for a short walk around the block to pick out new summer must-haves. Just in time for the revival of Sex and the City, Manolo Blahnik is opening at 52 Main St. so you can channel your inner Carrie and pick out the perfect pair of heels. It is also selling men’s loafers, so to all the Mr. Bigs out there, you are welcome too. For those of you looking for the cutest sneaks, slip-ons, summer sandals, and, of course, the classic summer mocs, we strongly suggest you stop by Tod’s at 47 Newtown Lane.

Gucci is finally opening its doors in the Hamptons this summer with its new two-story store on 17 Newtown Lane to give you all of the classic looks, and new Hamptons-inspired beach bags and leather goods. What could be better than shopping double G’s on double floors?! We know East Hampton will be offering you the best fits this summer, but what, you may wonder, about the kids? Not to worry. Simply walk a couple stores down to 37 Newtown Lane, located down the pathway next to Brunello Cucinelli, where you will find Jacadi and the cutest kids’ clothes. Honestly, I am jealous I can’t still shop here.

Finally, hit up Main St. for a few other must-shops this season. Named after its address, multi-brand boutique One on Main St. provides you with three floors to peruse. Offering the best, from men’s and women’s apparel and accessories to furniture to even just simple dinnerware, you won’t want to miss a floor, let alone the whole store. Walk a little further down the street to 54 Main St., and, I am happy to report, you will find Balenciaga is finally back after a long hiatus. Stop in to switch up your classic Hamptons wardrobe with some street style inspired pieces. This boutique, however, is devoted to one (crucially important) thing: accessories! Bags, shoes, scarves, belts, jewelry, and sunglasses — even the simplest outfit will be awe-worthy after shopping here.

If you need a break from shopping, but aren’t ready to go home quite yet, check out the new exhibition space Berggruen Gallery, at 55 Main Street. Originally started in gorgeous San Francisco, John Berggruen has decided to bring the gallery’s curated collection of modern and contemporary paintings, sculptures, and limited-edition prints to one of the most beautiful places on the East Coast: the Hamptons.
Walk throughout Amagansett and you’ll find the not-so-secret Noah Hideout at 14 Amagansett Square. This particular location of the famous menswear brand is — not surprisingly — beach focused. Not only will you find the coolest recycled bucket hats and colorful swim trunks, but also surf gear, such as boards and wetsuits, so you can look your best on and off land. Just four doors down, at 14 Amagansett Square, you will find Jenni Kayne (opening in July) and the store’s wonderful apparel and home collections. Plus, stop by and check out the brand’s first design bar, at which you can meet with an expert to discuss how to make your home absolutely perfect. Also new to the square, located at 249A Main St., is famed French-inspired boutique Clare V. Stop in to find the cutest bags and totes to carry around all summer long.

Around the corner at 23 Windmill Lane sits the Reform Club, a boutique inn that will be offering the best pop-ups all summer long. Seriously, from must-have beachwear brand Solid & Striped to luxury jewelry brands Hoorsenbuhs, Spinelli Kilcollin, and Material Good, guest or no guest, this inn is a must-stop this summer season.

We all know the mouthwatering Il Buco restaurants, and now we can recreate the vibe and look of their rustic and chic Italian style. Stop by Il Buco Vita at 225 Main St., the home store from the famed Il Buco family, to get the most beautiful housewares and tabletop that will make any meal almost as good as the real thing.
This summer, Sag Harbor staple LoveShackFancy has spread the love and opened a second location at 11 Main St. in Southampton. Get ready for double the love, double the shop, and double the fancy.
A stroll down Jobs Lane takes you to some of the best new shops in the Hamptons. Strut into Christian Louboutin at 53B Jobs Lane and experience its first-ever Southampton pop-up. Not only will you find the signature red-soled pumps, but also a three-piece capsule that is only available at this location. Next, walk to Fivestory Southampton at 38 Jobs Lane, where you can enjoy the brand’s perfectly curated, luxury shopping experience. Finish your day of shopping by finding the perfect diamond accessories at celebrity favorite jewelry designer Jade Trau’s new store, located at 46 Jobs Lane, where you may just stumble upon a piercing party!

The Veronicas have thankfully decided to bring their talent and their brand, Veronica Beard, to Southampton this summer at 84 B Main St. Shop their best-selling dresses and accessories that will have you looking your Hamptons best all season long.
Looking to satisfy your creative soul? Molly Wills of Waverly Beach has launched a new art gallery at 64 Jobs Lane that will accompany her already established GirlClass Summer Camp for empowering young girls. Look out for the gallery’s highly-anticipated David Yarrow exhibit July 31-August 6, as well as a program highlighting accomplished female artists such as Emma Childs, Pamela Belle, and Jennifer de Klaver.
If there was ever a time and place for must-shop pop-ups, summer in Montauk is definitely it. Although Lingua Franca has yet to open its own Hamptons store, you can still enjoy and shop their looks all season long at its summer pop-up at the Crow’s Nest, at 4 Old West Lake Drive. Trust me, and one of their shirt prints, when I say, you’ll find everything in the store “bloody fabulous.” Poolside at the Montauk Beach House at 55 S. Elmwood Ave, you’ll find another great summer pop-up: Noémie Goods. Pick out your favorite pieces of jewelry to complement your tan and sparkle in the sun. Just be careful not to lose anything when you jump in the water to cool off! Of course, I can’t leave Solé East, located at 90 Second House Road, out of the summer pop-up scene, as it welcomes A Wild Dove for the season. Don’t miss the chance to stop by and get the best tips & tricks on beauty, fashion, and wellness, before the brand and all its glamour fly away for Fall.
Brace yourself for the takeover of the season. Sasha Benz, from the famed Benz family, has decided to expand her OG boutique, Wyld Blue, and partner it with redesigned swim and beauty brand Wyld Black in the former Surf Lodge Sanctuary. And, like any good takeover, she has done it with grace, swiftness, and, of course, the utmost style.

Finally, if you’re searching for one-of-a-kind treasures, swing by newcomer Mako’s Vintage at 770 Montauk Highway. The store offers a curated collection of clothes, jewelry, and home décor. Think party shirts, Levi’s jean shorts, hundred-year-old books, fun old baseball caps, vintage wine glasses, board games, and even the occasional racing pigeon carrying case from the 1900s.
If you’re in Sag Harbor, don’t leave without at least stepping foot in Hudson Grace at 17 Washington St. to check out the entertaining and vintage pieces you didn’t even know your home needed. But, be warned, what may start with a quick browse will most likely end with you leaving armed with bags of linens, candles, the perfect white bowls, and ready to host the next dinner party.

New to the Bridgehampton community is Communitie at 2454 Main St. The boutique brings environmentally conscious clothing featuring brands such as Organic by John Patrick, Wales Bonner, and Von Sonno, as it supports social and artistic exchange. Not only will this store have you looking your best, but feeling the best. Goodbye fast fashion and hello sustainable styles.
This summer, family-owned company Saltwater Long Island, at 83 Main St., opened its doors with the promise of offering you “coastal casual comfort.” Whether you’re lounging around the house, walking around town, or even mustering up the strength to put your feet in the cold ocean water, with hats, tees, hoodies, and more, this place definitely has something for everyone and every activity.
