With its new lineup, Santa Barbara Umbrella pays homage to the iconic work of Slim Aarons, one of the most famous photographers of the 20th century. In his own words, Aarons loved to photograph "beautiful people in beautiful places, doing beautiful things." For Outdoor 2021, Santa Barbara Designs re-imagines several stand-out umbrellas in "those beautiful places surrounded by those beautiful people" in our 2021 Slim Aarons American Icon Collection. The collection borrows from three of his most well-known images.
