The Denim Umbrella

We visited J. Crew's just-opened Ludlow Suit Shop, and were pleasantly surprised by the kinds of luxe accessories they had to offer. One of the first things to catch our eye was this denim umbrella from London Undercover. Yep, you read that right: this umbrella is made by hand in France, utilizing a treatment process that makes the single-layer denim jean fabric completely water-repellent. The gentlemanly accessory is finished off with a beechwood handle and shaft, with an industrial-strength frame made to withstand the harshest winds. Plus, when you make an investment into an umbrella, you're probably going to make it a point not to lose it.

FYI

Designer Jamie Milestone founded London Undercover in 2008 with the mission to once again make the umbrella a prominent fashion accessory.
