Amanda Ross hosts the outdoor shopping market in the Hamptons
It may be a while before we can browse our favorite shops worry-free, but for those in the Hamptons this Wednesday and Thursday, ARossGirl stylist and retailer Amanda Ross has come up with a charming alternative.
Inspired by the outdoor markets of Provence (remember?), She fills four spacious tents on the east lawn of the Southampton Arts Center with a selection of clothing, jewelry, accessories, housewares and flowers, and of course masks .
Each tent is dressed in fabrics by interior designer Muriel Brandolini and the products will be presented on different themes: pink and “patrician” green, red, white and “preppy” blue and “bohemian” flowers. Ross, who worked as a magazine editor for years, describes himself as a “brick and mortar” type, which is undoubtedly a challenge in today’s pandemic environment. She was looking for a safe environment to responsibly bring together the people and retailers she loves.
“Shopping is a way to connect with others,” says Ross. “Today that means bringing the equivalent of the department store to the outdoors from a carefully curated vantage point that offers depth, adventure and that little extra chic.”
The tents, located between a Roman gallery and a Hauser & Wirth installation, will include exclusive collections designed by selected brands such as ARossGirl, Alicia Adams Alpaca, Carolina Irving & Daughters, Konstantin Kakanias, Muriel Brandolini, Dovima Paris, By Tatoufa and Marie -Hélène de Taillac, among others.
“We want to support independent designers in these complex times and create something happy, community-centric,” says Ross. Masks and safe social distancing will be enforced. En Plein Air is open from July 29 to 30, Wednesday and Thursday, from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m.
For those who cannot attend, there are also many items available virtually, we have selected a few below.
