Striking umbrellas by Sydney-based Gina & May!


How good are these kooky umbrellas by Sydney-based Gina & May!? The range was launched last year by super smart cookie Gina Pollock, who decided to take the plunge after noticing a gap in the market for fun, stylish yet sturdy and durable umbrellas.

Gina & May umbrellas come in either long handled or compact sizes, with classic timber handles and tips, and wind-proof mechanisms for the most blustery of days!

I am seriously coveting the ‘Starlet’ black and white stripey compact design, which folds away to a mere 19cm long when not in use. Gina & May are stocked in selected boutiques (not yet listed on their website unfortunately)… but you can also purchase from their online store.

Timber detailing and wind-proof mechanism… v. important!
