Celine Valensi is the keeper of the gates at The Crows Nest, which has differentiated itself from countless other trendy Montauk outposts with a dedication to quality. Located on a stretch on green grass over looking Lake Montauk, the property boasts a cozy chic hotel and Mediterranean eatery that is much more South of Italy than it is South of Mexico.

Sunset Beach on the quaint Shelter Island is the bar to go to on the island if you're looking for a chic night out. The Sunset Beach deck was normal as ever for a Friday evening; women donned bright caftans and cat eyed sunglasses, endless cocktails shining in the setting sun, the famous red seaplane landing on the sound across the way, but what was happening in the backyard of the French Bistro was a more relaxed Sunset Beach. In typical backyard soiree fashion, red blankets, hula hoops, grilled corn, burgers, and kegged beer were provided for guests who came to see the first edition of Coucher Du Soleil presented by André Saraiva and ENCORE!, but made possible by Absolut.

During the last weekend of June, two Europeans took over at the Kathryn Markel gallery in Bridgehampton, filling it with colorful, airy pieces of clothing, and turning it into the chicest sample sale the Hamptons has ever seen.

The Hamptons benefit scene is cluttered with events that gather funds for causes as diverse as puppies in need to countless cancer research foundations. Rarely do the events on the non-profit circuit aid in the creation of a public works project with a space-age twist. Enter the Lowline, an abandoned trolley terminal that co-founders Dan Barasch and James Ramsey have a plan to turn into an underground park with the ability to alter the dynamic of the Lower East Side as you know it.

A buzz has been created around L'Etoile Sport, a collection of luxury tennis apparel, which feels right at home in the Hamptons. Yesim Philip and Hannah Griswold, the ladies behind the latest sporty yet luxurious clothing line, seem to know a thing or two about what women are looking for in athletic wear. A collection of super white pieces, with hints of poppy, the color of the summer, include details such as zippers and ruffles that really make the pieces pop.
