There was no better way to commemorate the start of summer than by opening our very own summer pop-up, Studio C at The Well Summerland, last weekend on Saturday, July 4.

Curated by the editors of C Magazine, the Studio C concept is a first for California, bringing together the most talented artisans and forward-thinking brands plying their trades on The Golden State’s shores.

 

The brand-new STUDIO C pop-up at THE WELL SUMMERLAND stocks items by unique California brands and designers.

Having scoured the state from top to bottom, our editors have stocked Studio C with fashion from Rodarte, Greg Lauren, Heidi Merrick and Nick Fouquet, beauty by Vintner’s Daughter and Retrouvé, fragrances by Régime des Fleurs and Santa Barbara Novella, and home goods by Flamingo Estate Organics and Miri Mara Ceramics. The curation of clothing, design, books, candles and jewelry is unlike anything you will find elsewhere.

With the first Studio C concept store having opened earlier this year at Fashion Island in Newport Beach, this second edition is situated on the grounds of The Well in Summerland — an oasis of antiques, outdoor furniture and farming relics that are finding second lives as sculptures and furniture — the brainchild of Shane Brown of Big Daddy’s Antiques in Los Angeles, which services the interiors and landscaping needs of Beverly Hills and beyond.

Jennifer Smith, founder of Studio C and C California Style and president of Santa Barbara magazine, says: “I am so very proud to open a store in a place I have called home for the last 30 years. Studio C brings together the friends and artists I have discovered through the magazines and gives a platform to independent and up-and-coming brands as well. It encapsulates the boundless creativity coming from California right now.”

Every week there will be new deliveries coming through the doors of our white wooden cottage at The Well, so do stop by regularly to see what’s new.
