Alex and Mike Faherty display the brand’s summer inspiration board.
Beach-born brothers Alex and Mike Faherty have stolen the summer with their newly launched brand, headquartered in New York City with a summer Montauk outpost. The dynamic duo recently finished a 32-day tour aboard the Faherty Brand beach shack on wheels that brought the designers’ signature surf staples to beach towns along the East Coast. The mobile store and showroom just reached its final destination—Montauk—and will remain on the East End through August. Inside the mobile boutique, the brothers are introducing cozy knits as well as their coastal-inspired collection of boardshorts, swim trunks, and all-day shorts. Made of recycled materials featuring relaxed, yet durable textiles, pieces such as the beacon trunk in an updated galleon print ($125) or the classic boardshort in a faded sea-green hue with pompano patterning ($125), are popular with the local crowd. 201-790-0810

In honor of Hamptons magazine’s 35th anniversary, we’re taking a sartorial look back on Hamptons styles of yesteryear every Friday.
Hilary Rhoda at Love Heals' 2010 benefit in the Hamptons.
Model Hilary Rhoda already impresses with her dedication to Love Heals, the Alison Gertz Foundation for AIDS Education, but her preppy-chic Hamptons style earns her high marks, too. Pictured here in 2010, she's three years ahead of this summer's crop-top craze in an asymmetrical white shirt that's cut just above the belly. A striped navy-and-white maxi skirt and cropped denim jacket balance out the edgier top, and an earthy necklace is the perfect accent.

Dressage’s Trotter Satchel in stone ($1,495) includes bridle-inspired braided handles and leather accents.
Equestrian style aficionados are flocking to the Hamptons for Charles Chehebar’s classic, detailed bags inspired by dressage, the art and sport of horse training. Manufactured in a small workshop in Florence, Italy, the company—aptly named Dressage—creates supple leather bags featuring hallmark details such as heavy-duty saddle stitching. The Bridle bag group features custom-woven braided leather handles as “a spin off of the horse bridle,” explains Chehebar, who also draws inspiration from his own lineage for his line. His family has been involved in the accessories business for three decades, beginning with his grandfather’s small shop on Broadway in New York City. Each Dressage piece provides a winning blend of function, style, and longevity. Says Chehebar, “It’s something you should enjoy, and be able to pass down to your children and grandchildren.” Horse Haven, 36 Hampton Road, Southampton, 287-7065
