Friends first, The Skinny Dip began as a way for Sara Rossi and Taylor Ivey to showcase their own companies, Beau & Ro Bag Company and Ellsworth & Ivey, respectively, alongside complimentary brands from around the country.

Our first store, The Skinny Dip: A Summer Collective, located on Nantucket, houses a well-­curated mix of men’s, women’s and children’s brands, some with strong ties to New England and others with a more global point of view. The Skinny Dip focuses on introducing the island to established and emerging designers, and an ongoing events calendar makes The Skinny Dip not just an inspiring place to shop, but also a destination to connect. Located at 23 Old South Wharf in Nantucket, the store is open from mid-May to mid-October.

The Skinny Dip | Charleston Edition, located at 345 King Street, opened its doors in April 2017 and is the first year-round location. With two floors and approximately 4,000 square feet, the King Street location features brands from around the country, as well as a dedicated area for local Charleston makers. The second floor features a wine and coffee bar, as well as a co-working and events space. Patrons can also sit outside on the stunning patio with a latte or sip a glass of tasty frosé at the 20-foot coffee and wine bar. The Skinny Dip | Charleston Edition has also become a gathering spot for events—from private events to wine tastings, trunk shows to jewelry making workshops, and seminars to bachelorette parties.
