1) Bravo's Project Runway replacement The Fashion Show is now turning out sartorial choices for Hamptonites. Contestant Angel Chang sewed together 'the perfect Hamptons dress' on the most recent episode, inspired by the great dames of East End style, C.Z. Guest and Babe Paley. When asked what about the Hamptons prompted this creation (a 'Siamese Twin Shirt Dress' if you're counting), Chang unsurprisingly replied, 'For me, it’s about the water, the sun, and the escape from the hustle and bustle of New York...'

2) Screaming Mimi's Montauk pop-up is now home to a capsule collection for RVCA. (A pop-up with a capsule collection - far too many synonyms for temporary, if you ask us.) Five exclusive unisex graphic tees have gone on sale for $30-$45, and feature the work of such artists as Ben Horton, DMOTE, Luca Ionescu, Matt Furie and REVOK. [CurbedWire Inbox]
3) Bridgehampton's sample sale with a cause, Fashionhead, is now open Fri 10am-6pm, Sat-Sun 8:30am-7pm and Mon 10am-6pm. Featured designers at the Bull's Head Inn location include Gianfrance Ferré, Gucci, Max Mara, Vivienne Westwood, along with a host of others to be changed every few weeks. [CurbedWire Inbox]
