Navni posted on 21 June

Come Delhi monsoons, and the city becomes a flood site. While we’re all thankful for the dip in temperature, the rain can sometimes be quite the downer. While the sunshine’s thankfully hiding from us, we’re going crazy over these vibrant umbrellas and shoes, so life is just a little bit brighter.

Here are some brands to look out for when you’re in need of some rain gear.

India Circus

Bright and kitschy, India Circus’s umbrellas truly reflect Krsna Mehta’s design aesthetics. Choose from a collection of umbrellas donning quirky prints of cars, autos, owls, slippers, lampshades and cranes.

Umbrella Heaven

This UK-based website has the largest collection of umbrellas we’ve seen; from special men’s umbrellas, women’s umbrellas, kids’ umbrellas, hand-free umbrellas, and the option to customise your own umbrella! They ship worldwide, but of course custom duty charges apply, so keep in mind the excess dough you may have to shell out.

Nappa Dori

Nappa Dori keeps it classy as ever, even with their umbrellas. Available in a few limited colours, they’ve used water resistant fabric in double toned colours {so you get a contrasting colour on the inside} and a wooden handle; they make for a great style statement in the rain. All their umbrellas also come with a waterproof tetron cover, with a hand sling for ease of use.
