The Smock is a classic style from the 1950-60s that was worn by beachgoers as a coverup, waitresses as a uniform, and artists as an apron. Our smock is the equivalent of the Cabana Shirt for women and the perfect companion to our Bikini.
This smock is a very special collaboration with Santa Barbara-based architect Jeff Shelton. Jeff is our all-time favorite artist, period. His buildings are unlike anything but if we were to describe them, they look like they were grown from the seed of a Dr. Suess drawing and every detail finished by a merry band of artisans. As you can see from Jeff's doodle and the photo of the finished building below, that description isn't far from reality. Jeff designs all of the tile used in his buildings and in addition to being funky and beautiful, they are multi-directional asymmetrical tessellations meaning that they are not symmetrical but they fit together in any arrangement. Jeff's designs have transcended the tile medium and have been printed on fabric to make furniture, drapes, wallpaper, and now smocks!
The Smock is for those hot summer days when wearing shorts over your swimsuit just doesn't make sense. This is your grandma's beach coverup!
