Drakes continue to produce some excellent accessories, this collection of umbrellas is no exception. The Travel model, practical in design, available in navy, is shown above in polka dot. “An elegantly understated navy blue canopy as standard, chocolate brown leather handle. This refined full-sized brolly is the chic solution to keeping dry when traveling because both the handle and tip detach from the shaft to enable it to be packed in a suitcase.” While The Parasol heads more towards the luxury end of the scale “This peerless collector’s piece has a separate wooden shaft that attaches to the main shaft and has a tip to be sunk into the ground, transforming the umbrella into a venerable picnic parasol that provides suitable protection from inclement weather whilst tucking into the picnic hamper.” So, there is an upside to a downpour after all.
