Mini-empire Bird will open its first non-Brooklyn location this summer. A temporary shop aptly titled Beach Bird will launch June 1st and run through September 1st on Shelter Island—because a Hamptons pop up is so Manhattan.
All of the alt-beach essentials you'd expect from retail goddess—and Racked Young Guns selection committee member!—Jen Mankins will be on hand: East African beach blankets, hand-made leather sandals, colorblocked beach bags, swimwear from cool brands you haven't heard about yet, etc. Sorry, Montauk, you were just out-cooled in a single swoop.
