Hanging at the MILLY East Hampton boutique. Come visit us out east at 54 Main Street. Relaxing by the beach. We love to ride our bikes to Hamptons Coffee Company. The Clam Bar is a low-key retreat. The best sugar rushes can be had sitting at the counter at Candy Kitchen. Wolfer Estate Vineyard at Sunset. My daughter Sophia and I take a selfie by the pool. My son Will loves the water.

Michelle Smith, founder and designer of MILLY, tells us about one of her favorite style icons, Jean Seberg, leading up to the re-release of the French New Wave film Breathless on Blu-Ray this winter.
I first saw Jean Luc Goddard’s Breathless at the Film Forum in New York City when I was a 19 year-old fashion student at the Fashion Institute of Technology. Breathless is iconic in so many ways- especially from a style perspective.
It is hard to take your eyes off Patricia, played by Jean Seberg. Her effortlessly cool, gamine, left-bank style never goes out of style, even 50 years after the initial release. I can pick out French New Wave influences in my designs, from a classic graphic tee with the sleeves rolled up to slim cut tapered pants rolled above the ankles.
Experiencing Breathless is a rite of passage for any teen with fashion aspirations. As the first of the “French New Wave” genre, the film was shocking, cool and fresh.
Haven’t seen it? Pre-order it now or watch it on your holiday break!

Michelle Smith, founder and designer of MILLY, divulges some concoctions to fancy up your flute this season:
A fun cocktail is key to get the holiday party going. I am partial to champagne, but when the night calls for something a bit more fun, a bit more decadent, here are my favorites:
Bellini: Always classic. Always in style. This sublimely sweet drink was invented at Harry’s Bar in Venice as the perfect aperitif. It’s best when made with ripe peaches. If they’re not in season, try crème de peche (peach syrup). Use a 1:4 ratio of peach syrup to prosecco.
 Kir Royale: This fancy and beautifully hued cocktail consists of a dash of crème de cassis (currant syrup), topped with champagne. Delicious!
French 75: There are a number of versions of this seriously strong drink, but here’s the one that will start your party off right: add a splash of simple syrup, two splashes of of lemon juice, and an even bigger splash of gin, topped off with a glassful of champagne.
