Like excited children wearing back-to-school fall sweaters in the summer's still-sweltering heat, guests at this weekend's events showed that the sartorial tides are changing to favor colder weather's deeper blacks, browns, and navys. Below, eight images that prove that summer really is coming to a close—but that everyone is looking forward to fall fashion.

Where better to find a new chef for the Scandinavian accented Living Room restaurant at c/o The Maidstone than in Stockholm? Thirty-four-year-old Mathias Brogie was found at the Swedish F12 group, where he helmed the kitchens of four restaurants. In the Hamptons, Brogie has been turning out creative fare that’s been well received. Here, he reveals what he’s feeding himself.
Breakfast: "Sweden, along with Finland, has the [most] coffee consumers in the world. I only drink black coffee in the morning, and I have four to five cups before noon."
Lunch: "My tendency is toward rough elegance, not too much tampering with ingredients. I use herbs from our garden to make salad, and I might do a grilled salmon with baby arugula and mesclun and make a natural yogurt and garlic dressing. Or, I might cut up whatever I can get my hands on, like fennel, carrots, beets, celery, and cucumber, for a raw salad with balsamic vinaigrette. Sometimes I join the staff for a family meal of something like lamb, brown rice, and seasonal mushrooms; or sautéed seafood and garlic on bread with harissa aioli."
Snack: "One of my favorite snacks is dates wrapped with bacon that I deep fry or roast in the oven."
Dinner: "I like to cook meat such as rib-eye with semi-dried tomatoes and roasted garlic; or rub striped bass with lime, chili peppers, garlic, and fennel, then wrap it in parchment paper and grill it. Another favorite is lobster, which I boil half way, rub with rosemary, thyme, raw sugar, sea salt, and black pepper, then finish on the grill and drizzle with lemon vinaigrette. For dessert I like fruit. I will have berries and add yogurt or sorbet, which we make in house. I also like to grill mango with cinnamon and dried lemongrass, then serve it with raspberry or dark chocolate sorbet."

Sweet’tauk juices make ideal mixers for refreshing summer cocktails.
At Hamptons restaurants and lounges, crisp and cool cocktails can help bring relief from the hot, humid days of August. Adding a refreshing twist to a bar’s top-shelf liquors are restorative, summery ingredients—including fruit purée, lemonades, and juices—that normally hold their own sans spirits. “It’s not just for designated drivers and kids,” says Sweet’tauk founder Deborah Aiza of her locally sourced lemonade that’s blended with agave, not sugar. “It’s the perfect mixer. It’s a lighter alternative to the saturated mixed drinks found at most bars.
