When Houston native Camille Zarsky was beginning construction on her fine jewelry boutique in New York’s West Village, which she calls home, she was approached with the opportunity for a summer pop-up in the Hamptons. Zarsky, a former designer of a line of exotic skin handbags, says her new retail concept is inspired by her time spent visiting specialty boutiques that were stockists of her line. “My favorite places to shop have always been outside of New York,” says Zarsky, referring to Maxfield in Los Angeles and the now-closed Colette in Paris. “Great experiential, super fun, you might not buy a lot of stuff, but you’ll always remember how cool this store was.”
Zarsky has set out to create a destination retail experience when the Seven opens this fall in a prime location at the corner of Bleeker and Christopher streets once occupied by Jo Malone, not far from his own West Village home. Until mid-September, The Seven is a temporary pop-up in Sag Harbor showcasing pieces she’s purchased from brands including Emily P. Wheeler, Sorellina, Jenna Blake, Loquet of London, Mason & Books , The One I Love, Devon Woodhill and Eva Fehren. “Lots of color, joyful, exciting jewelry” in vibrant gemstones, she says.
