Pure Picks: Ulla Johnson

Fashion designer Ulla Johnson gives her go-to items for the season and celebrates the opening of her first brick and mortar shop out East in Amagansett.
“My husband and I have been spending our summers in Montauk with our three kids for over a decade,” says Johnson, “so it was natural for me to want to open a store in the Hamptons. Although I am always back and forth between the studio and the beach, when I am at the ocean, it’s all about relaxing and spending time with good friends and family.”
