About Olivia and Sandra
In our 20-year career as executives in the entertainment industry, we were always united in our commitment to greater diversity in the stories that define the American experience. As we got serious about our second act, we saw a need for affordable luxury wardrobe essentials for real women like ourselves that wasn’t being met in the fashion industry. With two years of research to find the finest fabrics, the best fit, and the best local craftsmen, we created the smash+scott collection—the ideal medium to express our passion for giving voice to the authentic stories of our lives.
We’re thankful to be members of the SoHarlem collective—a community-based social enterprise, founded by Janet Rodriguez, and based in Harlem, with a mission to ensure that artisans and creative entrepreneurs have access to the resources and industry veterans they need to make their products locally in New York and fulfill their creative vision.
We launched our new venture in 2015. We have so much more to learn. Please share your thoughts and feedback at firstname.lastname@example.org
We believe effortless style begins with the essentials, and we wanted to create a women’s fashion line of luxurious essentials that are uncomplicated and modern in design, sensual in feel, and comfortable and flattering in fit. Essentials that are your building blocks of go-to pieces that layer with ease and seamlessly make the transition from day to night and from season to season. Essentials that elevate the everyday to the extraordinary.
While attending entertainment industry conferences for women, we were always inspired by the creative, powerful, accomplished, fashionable women we met. But when it came time to let their hair down, one thing always came up: no matter who they were, where they lived, what generation they belonged to, or their budget, they all confided how challenging it is to find comfortable, stylish clothes that fit well and look amazing, whether they were a size 4 or 14. It struck us that women have enough on their plate, we shouldn’t have to work that hard to express our individual style in beautiful clothes that look good and feel great. We created smash+scott to fill this void. We designed a collection of pieces that are ageless—pieces that our daughters would try to steal from our closets. We wanted to create a modern style with an edge.
Our sizing might seem a little different at first, but it was the best way to ensure that our clothes are inclusive, so that women in a much broader range of sizes would feel confident in purchasing a smash+scott essential. Our line ranges from size 1 (US size small) to 5 (US size XXL). Check out our detailed sizing chart for more information.
Every piece in our collection is created in a limited run. This allowed us to produce our collection right here in New York City, using the most luxurious fabrics. When you purchase a smash+scott essential, rest assured you are getting a high-quality garment that was made by artisans with attention to detail that comes with years of expertise.
