Victorian-inspired, swarmed with oriental designs or picked up from great-grandmother’s attic, parasols took pride in maintaining a traditional image. These bad boys have made multiple appearances in the past, predominantly with their lace or embroidered buddies.
But now they’ve matured up to be more contemporary and simple, something we didn’t foresee. As the beaming sunshine drags you out in the park, there isn’t a better accessory to befriend this summer. They’re carefree, smart and easy-to-carry without being too overpowering and still making a stylish statement.
Penelope Parasols’ look book illustrate its lightweight characteristics through the dreamy, Polaroid-esque photography. You don’t have to be in floor-length period gowns or geisha-style kimonos to add this to your umbrella collection. They can be best friends with your high-end, designer-logo embossed brollies. Although the brass-finish tip and handle might endorse a contrary image.
Carry a bright parasol with a white summer dress, and let it do the talking for you. Plus you’ll also save your face from sun’s damaging UV rays.
Told you, it’s an accessory, particularly, for the clever bunch.
