Getting Fresh, Eh?
    Coming down on the fashion currents from Canada, Joe Fresh has opened a pop-up store on Main Street in East Hampton Village, featuring casual summer wear at reasonable prices.
    This is Joe Fresh’s first store in the United States, although the brand is well known, with 300 stores up north.
    Although the local branch of the shop will only be open until the end of the summer, a more permanent store is set to open in New York City this fall.
    The East Hampton store, on the corner of the Circle and Main Street, is open seven days a week. More information about the brand can be found at joefresh.com.

Scent of the Hamptons
    When the Southampton Saks Fifth Avenue recently closed its doors, Bond No. 9, with three shops in Manhattan, set out to find a new place on the East End to market its line of perfumes, scented candles, soaps, body creams, and more.
    Last month, Bond No. 9 opened its parfumerie in Sag Harbor’s American Hotel at 45 Main Street, which is in keeping with the company’s modus operandi of inhabiting historic buildings and locations. The latest location features a sea-blue chandelier. along with what a release calls, “our legendary five-star service.”
    Local scents will make the scene as well — Bond No. 9 has launched two beach fragrances, Hamptons and Montauk, rich with marine notes. A Sag Harbor scent is in the works.

Ramy Brook Trunk Shows
    Ramy Brook, according to a release, “is a luxurious lifestyle brand defined by sexy, wearable pieces that can take women from day to dinner.” The ready-to-wear label, featuring “casual glam” clothes, will host three trunk shows this month. The first is today, from 9 a.m. to noon at Soul Cycle at 264 Butter Lane in Bridgehampton, but there’s another chance to see what’s on offer next Thursday at Edit New York, 28 at Job’s Lane in South­ampton from 4 to 6 p.m. Last call is on July 30, at Super Saturday, held at 30 Millstone Road in Water Mill from noon to 6 p.m.
    The designer of the line with a ’70s twist is Ramy Sharp, who has a house in Southampton that she shares with her husband and three children. Twenty percent of sales will be donated to the Women’s International Zionist Organization U.S.A., which is one of Israel’s largest providers of social welfare services, catering not only to women, but also to children and the elderly.
