London Undercover designer Jamie Milestone is a man who believes the humble umbrella is not receiving the recognition it deserves. A truly timeless and infinitely practical accessory, London Undercover’s sole aim is to elevate it’s position in the arsenal of any sartorially savvy individual.
A quintessential piece of British style, Milestone plants the roots of his design squarely in the grass roots of English design, taking on patterns from traditional tailoring and incorporating our unique view of the world.
The signature London Undercover piece, the Double Layer Umbrella is made in the UK, expertly constructed with top quality wood and recycled PET fabric, with restrained top layers and semi-hidden linings offering up a playful contrast with bold all over prints.
The City Gent collection offers up contemporary reworkings of the classic formal umbrella, incorporating bold prints, colourways and fabrics all the while retaining the level of protection required while out and about in the rain.
New for SS14, the Whangee Folded Umbrella seeks to combine the quality and reliability of their full size models with an incredibly versatile folded design, topped off with a genuine Whangee bamboo handle.
