Poolside Collective, a curated concept shop and event space, is opening its doors at The Montauk Beach House
just in time for the start of the Hamptons season. The Montauk boutique will showcase a hand selected edit of brands including one-of-a-kind accessories, custom apparel, artwork, literature, books, and more. Shoppers can browse through a variety of brands from around the world, for both men and women, such as Hawaii-based San Lorenzo Bikinis and handmade accessories from Miami-based Miansai. Local apparel and accessory lines like New York Sunshine and Fin Montauk will also be available.
Founded by Ashleigh Hults and Lee Ann Bulgin, the duo carefully picked each brand in the integrated marketing experience at Poolside Collective as a way to create meaningful awareness for the featured companies.
"We both grew up on the island, so we have a strong understanding of Montauk's ethos," said Poolside Collective Co-Founder Lee Ann Bulgin. "We created a seamless and organic way for brands to gain exposure to a hyper-targeted demographic while enjoying a point of sale and summer-long presence on the East End."
