We're heading out a little early for Summer Friday. Have a good weekend!

UPPER EAST SIDE—It's not unheard of for editors to become designers—just look at Vera Wang—but the ones who do usually come from fashion magazines. Punch Hutton is the exception. The Vanity Fair deputy editor and sister of actor Timothy Hutton has designed a line of simple little shift dresses for uptown boutique Edit New York. All eight pieces were created in conjunction with former Derek Lam designer Vee Lapnarongchai and handmade in New York. They run $295 to $400, and they'll debut at Edit's Hampton shop this afternoon, after which you'll be able to find them at both Edit locations. [Racked Inbox]

SOHO—Built By Wendy is closing their Manhattan shop on Centre Market Place on August 1st, but don't worry—it's coming back. After a full month of renovations, the store will reopen in September. In the meantime, BBW fans can shop the Brooklyn location, which was recently converted into an outlet for past-season merchandise. [Racked Inbox]
