An unbeatable summer accessory is the humble umbrella, that while protecting you from the harsh heat also lets you put up a mini style statement of your own. However, the lack luster black and monochrome umbrellas are now passé and can hardly do any good to your fashion sense. This is probably where the exclusively hand-crafted umbrellas by luxury brand – Le Parasol can come to your rescue.
The high-end brand creates unique parasols that are primarily created to protect the user against the sun, in ways that are more exotic than ever! The curators behind the concept are talented mother and daughter duo – Anna Hess and Jessica Hess who personally hand-craft these wonders by using top notch materials and clever designs. While all of their products are uber-glamorous, the one that is garnering more attention than ever is the Kraken – a custom made parasol with hand stitched teal sequin trim on the top and bottom, that also features a hand painted gold and blue octopus with shinny metallic flakes.
The Kraken is made up of 20 different shades of metallic, pearlescent, and vivid matte high quality fabric paints and is finally finished with a gold frame, handle and wristlet from Italy. If you wish to add a touch of elite to your collection, owning one of Le Parasol’s umbrellas isn’t a bad deal. While the Kraken will cost you a whopping $850, standard parasols by the brand will take you down by $375 each.
