As the season wraps, I cannot think of a better summer that I have spent in the Hamptons. The weather has been simply stunning, and we’ve had a number of restaurants and retailers open pop-ups and others committing to staying open year round (we love that!).
In this issue, we celebrate designer Michael Kors, who has made a philanthropic commitment to Watch Hunger Stop. The designer continues his innovative fashion line with new wearable fitness technology and launches a new fragrance, Wonderlust, which will take us right into the fall. Along with his muse Lily Aldridge, Kors takes us to Greece for an exclusive photo shoot.

And, without question, a season in the Hamptons is all about some seriously spectacular fashion. Our panel of experts—Alina Cho, Andrew Saffir, Lizzie Tisch, and Anne Keating—weigh in on who they thought the 50 best dressed were in the Hamptons this summer. Keep your eyes turned to page after page of this final issue of the season as we ready you for autumn and how to look absolutely stunning.
Have a wonderful fall and winter, and we’ll see you back here Memorial Day weekend!
