It’s officially umbrella season. Which means that (a) you can buy a cheap one from a corner store and have it break during the first downpour or (b) you can spend a little more and have one that actually lasts. If you’ve chosen B, then you’d be smart to get into the London Undercover and Carhartt W.I.P collaboration.
The collection comes in two colorways, camouflage and navy blue. The camouflage is a signature pattern for Carhartt WIP, as seen in its “Detroit Area 313” collection. London Undercover, founded in 2008 by Jamie Milestone, is a relatively new addition to the world of umbrella making. And it has used it’s relative newness to work with brands that heritage umbrella makers would turn its nose up at, such as Carhartt WIP.
They’re available online and are an ideal addition for anyone who needs some sheltering from the rain.
