The Hamptons
Best Things to Do


Spend the afternoon in town, strolling through Newtown Lane for an afternoon of serious shopping. Tory Burch, the classic New York designer, has a boutique where she sells her elegant flats and timeless tunics. Catherine Malandrino's sexy French dresses and petite blouses will make heads turn on both sides of the Atlantic, and at Mecox Gardens you'll find unique objects and furniture, all of which sport an eye-catching mix of high design and warm colors. At John Varvatos' elegant shop, men will find a mix of bohemian and stylish clothing.

Southampton is also a shopping mecca, both for the home and the body. Homenature caters to the stylish contemporary interior, and Hildreth's — the oldest department store in the United States — sells the softest towels, fluffiest duvets and tons of accessories for the modern nursery. Therapy Clothing has the largest selection of swimwear, and Calypso sells women's wear and home décor. At Hatchlings, you can purchase the perfect panoply for the noble child: two-ply cashmere sweaters, Parisian shirts and dresses, as well as the most adorable baby outfits.
