London Jewelers brings acclaimed brands including Buccellati, Bulgari, and Raymond Weil to the East End; on August 17 from noon to 5 pm, the boutique is hosting a personal appearance by Monica Rich Kosann, whose guilloche lockets were inspired by the Hamptons. “All the engravings found on the vintage watches and cigarette cases I find antiquing here have similar features in my collection,” says Kosann. The lockets can be customized, as “the look a woman creates with [her] jewelry can become distinctly her own.” 47 Main St., Southampton, 287-4499

Barry's Bootcamp, which opened in Wainscott last year.
Drop by some of the East End’s trendier fitness studios and you’re likely to find serene spaces where trim trainers lead their students through painstakingly precise workouts. That’s exactly what you won’t get at Barry’s Bootcamp in Wainscott, where working out is more like partying at a club with great music and high-energy trainers who know how to whip the place into a happy, sweaty frenzy.

A bespoke fit and crisp lines are hallmarks of Deborah Drucker’s British-meets-rocker collection: vested jacket ($2,150), hidden button blouse ($950), and custom leather leggings (price on request).
Deborah Drucker’s Fall 2013 collection, featuring tailored trousers, bell-sleeve tops and jackets, offers a boundary-pushing sensibility. “With this collection, I kept thinking uptown meets rock ’n’ roll, combining elements of English high society with what was coming from the early British rock scene,” says designer Deborah Drucker, whose ready-to-wear pieces blend the sass of a Euro-rocker with finely detailed equestrian touches such as made-to-measure buttons and zippers. “The tailored trousers, button-up shirts and refined jackets pull elements from classic equestrian styles, while the strong hardware and custom zipper elements converge to give the collection an edgier aesthetic.” Drucker honed her style sense from an early age; her father, Severin Wunderman, designed timepieces for Gucci, and her early exposure to fashion runways informed her career choice—and her radical style sense. The forthcoming collection, she says, “brings together looks that closely align with the chic Hamptons lifestyle. Each piece is an extension of me and my hyper-attention to refinements. Any unraveling hem or a stitch out of place will not pass.” Shari’s Place, 29 Main St., Southampton, 726-7200
