A young Jacqueline Bouvier poses with a friend at an East End fashion show.
As another summer season draws to a close, it seems fitting to look back to one of the East End’s most recognizable and iconic faces—a First Lady and fashion icon known the world over. To most, she was Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, but to us, she was Jacqueline Bouvier, a quintessential East Ender, born in Southampton in 1929—the first child of John “Black Jack” Bouvier and his wife, Janet, an East Hampton family with an estate ensconced on a quiet corner of Further Lane. The street name, Lasata, was a Native American word for “place of peace.”

Known to locals and summer revelers alike as the duke-elect of all things Montauk, Ben Watts—resident photographer and brother to our cover star Naomi Watts—unveils Ben Watts x thesurflodge, a collection of limited-edition pieces in collaboration with The Surf Lodge. The avid music lover behind the legendary Shark Attack Sounds Party designs unisex hats and hooded sweatshirts inspired by the Hamptons’ beach culture. They feature the signature diamond motif and #shhhhh hashtag that have become synonymous with his namesake wine, WattsUp Rosé.
The crossover to retail has been a calculated project long in the making. “When The Surf Lodge approached me to get something going with clothing, it was important to both parties that the product was really solid,” Watts explains. “What we’ve made is truly great, and I’d love to do even more in the future.” Before Labor Day weekend comes to an end, scoop up signature Surf Bazaar styles to pair with a Montauk hoodie ($125). 183 Edgemere St., Montauk, 668-1035
