How about an umbrella suit to work?
Designer Ágatha Ruiz de la Prada took her creation to another level with a pink suit jacket and an umbrella motif skirt. What made her creation even more interesting was the 3D water droplets on the hem of the skirt that add so much drama to the outfit! Superb!
Let’s dress up like some Chinese queen
Designer Guo Pei (the one who designed Rihanna’s Met Gala dress) made her model bloom in a flower shaped umbrella on her runway at the Hong Kong Fall/Winter 2010 Fashion Week. In contemporary and traditional Chinese fashion aesthetics, her piece was the perfect mix of vintage and new school.
Let’s live the bygone era
How about Garden of Eden for some style inspiration? Designers Dolce & Gabbana presented their ‘Ultimate Fantasy Version’ of Capri at their Autumn Winter 2014 Alta Moda show and mesmerised their audience with their botany inspired creations of umbrellas. We’d like one, please!
Now that’s ultimate sophistication
Simple, ladylike and understatedly glamorous, we love this one by Hussein Chalayan at his Spring/Summer 2014 show. We’re big fans of transparent rainwear and this his one is our best pick as if offers practicality along with style.
In a fantasy world!
Mercedes Benz Fashion Week Spring Summer 2013 had a whimsy moment with Ágatha Ruiz de la Prada’s collection. Her nature-inspired pieces of dresses and accessories caught everyone’s fancy, this dress especially, as it’s a cute, whimsical outcome of the relationship between a cloud and an umbrella in pastel hues.
