Creative Director of her family's eponymous cosmetics brand and a lifelong Hamptonite, Olivia Chantecaille opens up about her perfect East Hampton day.
“I grew up spending the summers in East Hampton; my parents have a wonderful whaling captain’s home that is one of the oldest in town. Now it’s a place we love to go with my daughter, Delphina. Our mornings start out on the terrace with freshly baked muffins and smoothies from Mary’s Marvelous (105 Newtown Lane, 324-1055).
Then my husband, Ren, and I will take Delphina to Quail Hill Farm (660 County Road 45, Amagansett) to pick some raspberries and snap peas. I love to take her there to show her where her food comes from; it’s so important for city kids to have that connection to nature.
Then the family will head out on the boat to Duryea’s (65 Tuthill Road, Montauk, 668-2410) for lobster rolls and a swim. When we’re back in East Hampton, we take a late-afternoon stroll into town and see what’s new at Kirna Zabête (66 Newtown Lane, 527-5794).
I also love to peek in at Steph’s Stuff (62 The Circle, 329-2943) and pick up a new puzzle for Delphina. Then it’s time for raspberry sorbet at Scoop du Jour (35 Newtown Lane, 329-4883) and feeding the ducks at the pond. We end the day with dinner in the garden at The 1770 House (143 Main St., 324-1770)—it’s charming, relaxing, and the food is delicious.”
