Summer is coming and we’re kicking off the season with a drive out to Montauk - a New York beach town famous for surfing and frequented by those looking to escape the summer heat in Manhattan.

Club Monaco is pleased to photograph Rober Mckinley, an interior designer, whose firm designed The Surf Lodge and his wife, Kate Nauta, a model, actress, singer, as well as one of the co-founders and marketing head of Montauk Brewing Co., Vaughan Cutillo with “The Beach Life” ready-to-wear summer collection. Whether at the beach or not, our first look at summer promises an elevated take on coastal cool with lightweight, relaxed silhouettes - think voluminous shirting, soft washed linen, and a nautical blue stripe for warm days and breezy nights. “The Beach Life” embracing fresh, laid-back feel of summer in everything from everyday wear to traditional beach wear, an easy summer lifestyle sure to brighten each day!
