British designer Jamie Milestone has incorporated the classic umbrella design with iconic British patterns for his new line of London Undercover 'Slim Walker' umbrellas.
And with the April showers looming, there is no better way to keep dry when celebrating the Royal Wedding. The English Breakfast design, which combines a red gingham tablecloth with a Full English fry-up interior, is guaranteed to stand out in the crowd, whilst the retro Fish & Chips design, which sports original Daily Mirror headlines, pays tribute to the great British seaside tradition.
Made using only the finest materials and quality craftsmanship, and featuring truly unique designs, these London Undercover umbrellas turn the April showers into a cause for celebration.
Established in 2008, London Undercover specializes in essential British accessories - umbrellas, trilby and bowler hats, scarves and city bags - all of which are transformed from wet-weather essentials into must-have luxury fashion accessories with a quintessentially British twist.
