The Karen Walker x Blunt collaboration keeping us stylishly dry this winter

An indestructible and perfectly optimistic umbrella to keep you dry on a miserable day.

There was once a time when we had a rogue umbrella floating around the office, and when weather permitted, it was a piece of gold that we all wanted, but unfortunately, couldn’t share. Then one day, it mysteriously disappeared and I now understand why; it happened to be one of the ‘limited edition Karen Walker x Blunt’ variety, which, until today, were incredibly hard to come by.

Following the sellout success from last year, the two iconic brands have released a second collection of wet weather protectors featuring the much-coveted bird print from Karen Walker’s new season collection, ‘Babou’s Revenge’. The inevitable bouts of rain that are sure to come our way are about to be a little less miserable with the sturdy and stylish range that is equal parts fashionable and functional. And, as I often find myself in situations where my umbrella does exactly the opposite of what an umbrella should do (think inside out and upside down) I think it may be time for an upgrade to what is arguably the most trust-worthy seasonal sidekick.

The Karen Walker for Blunt ‘Babou’ umbrellas are now available in store and online
