Chances are you’ve been checking the weather app and soon need to reach out for an umbrella.
There are perks of living in tropical cities like Bangkok — the bright sunshine and the warm weather all year round — and then there are the downpours that get us pretty much soaked. That time of year again, as we are jumping into June, the thunderstorms and drizzles have already begun.
Carrying umbrellas for those just-in-case-it-rains situations is as essential as wearing a mask because, at this point, we can’t take a chance to fall ill. Since we have to settle down for an umbrella, we might as well have a designer one that could complement our outfits. It could easily camouflage with your attire or enhance the whole look. Here’s a roundup of some of our favourite designer umbrellas from our favourite fashion brands, so you can beat the rain like a boss this season.
