As much as we love the romance behind letting go of our inhibitions and running out in the pouring rain, it’s unfortunately not as practical as what we all secretly hope for… So what better way to protect yourself from the rain than to do it in style with Burberry Prorsum’s amazing umbrella collection! This amazing collection first saw the light of day on the AW12 runway during London Fashion Week. It seems as though the umbrella could be the new accessory to steal the limelight from your outfit on a rainy day.
The fanciful collection of umbrellas features intricately hand carved metal and resin animal heads as well as hand painted wooden mallard ducks. Even though these umbrellas were shown down the runways paired with the menswear collection, these can be easily transitional for women as well. However, an equally stunning alternative was presented for women with studded handles which perfectly matched the highly coveted studded leather gloves.
Now all we can secretly hope for, is a bit of rain so we have an excuse to walk out in style with these whimsical walking umbrellas!
