Marimekko Umbrellas

Posted on March 17, 2009 Under Fashion

While the wet rat look works for some, others may want to consider taking a fresh look at the umbrella, as rendered by Finnish company Marimekko. The brand came into the American consciousness with Jackie O’s unofficial endorsement in the 1960s and made our radar in 2006. Now as we head into springtime, and May showers, you can pick up a Marimekko umbrella that will protect you from the elements and preserve your sense of style. New to OAK’s menswear line are four umbrellas in black and white stripes, polka dots, and red and navy designs. Each is made from durable teflon-coated polyester, measures approximately 40" in diameter open and 13" in length closed.
