Is the East End social scene feeling a bit passé? There are a slew of new names to know, and hot off the presses from the latest issue of The Daily Summer, we’re sharing 10 fresh faces to get familiar with out in the Hamps. Welcome to Next Generation week! Some come from storied families, others are self-made…meet the chicsters of tomorrow. This time, we talked to Sophia Schrager, 20, the daughter of hotelier Ian Schrager, who’s taken a charitable approach to things.

Mom & Dad: Hospitality titan Ian Schrager and former ballet dancer Rita Schrager

9 To 5: Education major at NYU

Street Cred: “The weekend after my parents brought me home from the hospital, they brought me to the Hamptons.”

Spilling Secrets: “I love watching all the surfers at Road G in Southampton, which is this amazing beach I’m probably not supposed to talk about because no one really knows it. Oops!”

Summer Steez: “Calypso really does it for me. Isabel Marant is also fantastic. I like that you can wear her stuff in the city and also in the Hamptons. I like clothes that serve multiple purposes.”

Daddy’s Girl: “He’s the smartest person I know. He has this special ability to know what people need before they know they need it.”

Passion Project: “I’m interning at The Joyful Heart Foundation, which is a charity started by Mariska Hargitay from Law & Order. Our mission is to heal, educate, and empower survivors of sexual assault, domestic violence, and child abuse. I definitely want to be a teacher, but maybe instead of being a teacher at a school I’ll work on educating people about those issues. I know it sounds cliché, but I want to help people.”
