I never pack an umbrella when I travel but without fail, it always seems I need one. While a compact size is most certainly more practical, I say go big! if you’ve got the room. That’s just because I love this design from Sir Paul Smith’s collection. The noted menswear fashion designer from across the pond proudly showcased this design in his spring 2009 collection. Here’s a new spin on waving the flag! With a solid black exterior, the Union Jack on the inside and a cane handle, this umbrella is a chic example of national pride. Or just a super-stylish accessory for the design-conscious travelista.
