Earlier this summer, East Hampton was infused with Tod’s Italian roots thanks to a pop-up shop at 47 Newtown Lane. The 1,700-square-foot space is decorated with many special touches, including printed wallpaper inspired by the picturesque seaside lanscapes of the Italian coastal towns of Positano and Portofino, and illustrations by Italian artist Andrea Tarella.

To celebrate the pop-up, GRAZIA USA partnered with Tod’s for an exclusive in-store shopping event on Friday, August 26. There were styling consultations from GRAZIA USA‘s Editor and Chief Creative Officer Joseph Errico and Fashion Market Editor, Shelby Comroe, as guests enjoyed light bites and aperitivo drinks by Fig & Olive and music by DJ Martial Simon.

Shoppers had an extra special reason to pick out a few pieces from the full summer collection (which was exclusive to Tod’s East Hampton location), because in honor of National Dog Day, 10% of the day’s sales at the store benefitted North Shore Animal League America in support of their no-kill mission to rescue, nurture, adopt and educate.

The exclusive summer collection included items like multicolored raffia sandals and espadrilles, as well as color-blocked raffia shopping totes. Of course, shoppers could still find the brand’s timeless signatures, such as the Gommino driving loafers and pick up a present for their furry friends with their collection of pet merchandise.
