Score unique finds for the beach in a de­cid­edly swish at­mos­phere at David Chines’s Co­pi­ous Row Beach in Southamp­ton.

As the well-heeled masses re­turn—arms out­stretched—to East End shops, David Chines waits calmly, con­fi­dent that cus­tomers will fall head-over-louboutins for Co­pi­ous Row Beach. And with good rea­son: His new gallery­like bou­tique of­fers de­signer must-haves with rel­e­vance far be­yond Coop­ers Beach.

“We have a great range of ap­parel and ac­ces­sories you can’t oth­er­wise find in Southamp­ton,” Chines says. “The de­sign­ers I carry are exclusive to me in terms of dis­tri­bu­tion, which re­ally speaks to a cus­tomer who wants to wear some­thing beau­ti­ful to a party or ben­e­fit that oth­ers won’t show up in.”

A for­mer LVMH mar­ket­ing exec who honed his style acu­men work­ing with Fendi and Givenchy, Chines pri­or­i­tizes ver­sa­til­ity. From the ar­chi­tec­tural el­e­gance of Delpozo to the for­ward-think­ing sil­hou­ettes of the CFDA Fash­ion Award-win­ning Brock Col­lec­tion—with Judith Leiber, So­nia Rykiel, To­mas Maier, and other in­flu­en­tial de­sign­ers in be­tween— Co­pi­ous Row Beach is chock­ablock with looks that would be right at home in Man­hat­tan.

Chines earned a de­voted clien­tele with his Co­pi­ous Row out­posts in Sag Har­bor and Green­wich, Con­necti­cut. To tai­lor the shop’s vibe for a beachier, event-con­scious crowd, he en­listed in­te­rior de­signer Zachary Dilling­ham Zim­mer­man. Mar­ble ta­bles and palm-frond wall­pa­per set a fun yet so­phis­ti­cated stage. “It’s all about cre­at­ing an am­bi­ence that caters to the client and the cloth­ing,” Chines says. “Ev­ery piece has a place to be show­cased.” 28C Jobs Lane, Southamp­ton, 631-488-4555; co­pi­ous­row.com

The metic­u­lously cu­rated ap­parel and ac­ces­sories that have made Co­pi­ous Row a des­ti­na­tion for fash­ion­istas have a new beachy show­case. Of­fer­ings in­clude an in­spired home line from For­nasetti (pic­tured), a rein­ter­pre­ta­tion of Ital­ian painter, sculp­tor,...
