Spring Inspiration: Hello Hamptons
Springtime brings an optimistic mood and the desire to escape after a long winter. With the East End of Long Island just a train ride away from NYC, it’s our perfect weekend getaway. The spring collection was inspired by the overall feeling, unique textures and colors found along the way as we head out East. We caught up with our design team to see how the collection came to life.
Our first stop is at the Dan Flavin Art Institute in Bridgehampton. From the outside you’re looking at a weather washed barn, but as soon as you open the doors you’re captured by beautiful hits of neon lights. Graphics and stripes are always a key design element for us and the use of bright colors gives it an extra Parker touch.
Fav Hotspot: Stop for brunch at Topping Rose House. This historic Bridgehampton property sources ingredients from the on-site far, local fisherman and farmers.
Next, we’re traveling through the Hamptons, stopping along the way to admire the quaint towns and well-known hotspots within each. As the weather is warming up, florals are beginning to bloom. We’re captivated by the big beautiful hydrangeas lining all of these Hamptons homes, from bright whites planted against cedar shake homes and vibrant blues that pop against white picket fences. It’s official – spring is in the air.
Fav Hotspot: Grab an iced coffee at Golden Pear while window shopping along East Hampton's Main Street.
Our trip ends in Montauk, a beach town with an anything-goes vibe. It’s the type of place where you head out in the morning for yoga and brunch, but end up sipping margaritas at happy hour and hanging by a beachside bonfire all night. This idea inspired us to create throw-on-and-go pieces that can be worn wherever the day (and night) may take you.
Fav Hotspot: Check out Dureya's for their waterfront view and infamous lobster cobb salad.
