BrollyDollys - designer umbrellas Down Under
Some of the world's most glamorous designer umbrellas are now available in Australia via online umbrella boutique, BrollyDollys.
Headlining BrollyDollys' range of stylish parasols and umbrellas is an exclusive collection by award-winning designer Lulu Guinness.
The collection boasts Lulu's signature look - 1950s inspired glamour - incorporating classic prints and icons such as llips, lipstick and high heel shoe.
"The humble umbrella has such a rich history," says Lauren, co-founder of BrollyDollys.
"Since the 17th Century, umbrellas and parasols have been at the forefront of cultural customs and fashion eras, not to mention a benchmark of wealth in many societies.
"This classic and timeless fashion accessory is the perfect addition to almost any outfit!"
For a long while, umbrellas have functioned as more of a utillity rather than an expression of fashion. This outlook is beginning to change, with 2009 fashion trends broadcasting the resurgence of the umbrella.
Although the mini umbrella has found a convenient space in our handbags for those unsuspecting showers, Lauren recommends "going big and bold with vibrant prints, metallic tones or elegantly chic with a complementiing stick umbrella or parasol".
"In the drab economic climate, carrying a beautiful umbrella is such an inexpensive way to brighten your day!"
BrollyDollys' impressive and ever-expanding range of fashion umbrellas caters for women, men and children with exotic umbrella designs for any occassion - fashion, fun, rain, hail and sun! Check them out at www.brollydollys.com.au
