Gray Malin Limited Edition Collection

New York Times bestselling author and fine art photographer Gray Malin joins forces with Santa Barbara Designs to create a Limited Edition collection of outdoor umbrellas for the home. The iconic silhouettes that grace Malin’s sun-kissed beach photography were the inspiration for this collection. With a shared aesthetic that celebrates color, shape and classic Mediterranean and 1960’s designs, this capsule collection pays tribute to touchstones of both brands. View the four images that inspired this limited collection – and the umbrellas they inspired – below.
01
The Orange Umbrella, Miami

This single striped subject takes center stage while simultaneously camouflaging into the sandy background in The Orange Umbrella, Miami from the iconic À la Plage series. Shot on location in sunny south Florida.

02
Miami Pink Umbrellas

This iconic retro shot of southern Florida exudes a retro-chic mood. Gray created Miami Pink Umbrellas from the Art Deco Miami series by photographing from a doorless helicopter on location in Miami.

03
Tassel Umbrellas

Shot on location in Tuscany. Gray captured Tassel Umbrellas as part of his popular La Dolce Vita series during his road trip along the Italian coastline. Focusing on timeless details and retro-vintage beach umbrellas, this series is meant to evoke the classic nostalgic opulence that the Italian Rivera once represented.

04
La Fontelina Beach Club

The iconic blue and white striped umbrellas provide shade from the sun’s warm rays and evoke nostalgia of the opulent mid-century Italian Riviera. Gray documented famous Italian beaches in the popular La Dolce Vita series during a month-long journey following the coastline.
