Gina & May NEW Premium Collection + Giveaway!

by Lucy Feagins, Editor
Tuesday 9th August 2011

Gina & May new ‘Premium Collection‘ designer long umbrellas – designs from top, Topsy, Ms Starlet and Stepping out in Style – $64.95 each.

Sydney umbrella gurus Gina & May have done it AGAIN!  Their new ‘Premium Collection‘ range has just launched and it is the CUTENESS.  Have you ever seen such snazzy umbrellas in your entire life….?   I think not.  And whilst we may be almost at the end of winter in the Southern Hemisphere, Melbournians certainly know all too well that it’s those unexpected spring showers you really have to watch out for!

I, for one, am a bit overwhelmed.  How can you possibly choose just one of these stunning designs?!  Would it be excessive to purchase a different umbrella for every day of the week, do you think?  What about one for each outfit?

If you can BEAR to choose just one favourite, Gina Pollock of Gina & May would love to offer one lucky Design Files reader a ‘Premium Collection’ brolly of your choosing!  Simply leave a comment on this post today letting us know your favourite design. All six new designs are pictured here, or for a closer look, pop over to the Gina & May website. One lucky winner will be selected at random and contacted by email tomorrow. (Giveaway open to Australian residents only).

*Update – a winner has been drawn!  Comment #212 was the lucky number – congratulations Fiona! Thanks so much everyone, for all your wonderful comments! :)

How lovely!  Thankyou Gina!

  • Esz 5 years ago

    Bubbles is my fave :-))

  • Cynthia 5 years ago

    I’ve never cared much for carrying an umbrella. I always prefer just pulling up the hood on my jacket. However these umbrellas are so cute, I just might have to rethink my anti-umbrella stand.


  • Sophie 5 years ago

    Topsy please! Stunning designs

  • jess 5 years ago


  • Anna 5 years ago

    Oh so pretty! I love the Carousel – so bright and lovely to brighten up a winters day. And oh so needed down here in drizzly ‘ol south west Vic!

  • amy 5 years ago

    They’re all gorgeous but Ms Starlet is terribly chic

  • mish 5 years ago

    Ooh! I love a Carousel!

  • Bec 5 years ago

    Topsy topsy topsy! My favourite and so much fun!

  • Lani 5 years ago

    Stepping out In Style – beautiful!

  • Sarah B 5 years ago

    Without question Topsy would be my pick. They’re just stunning. Much nicer than my cheap black boring number. It pretty much hasn’t stopped raining and drizzling here in Hobart for days so one of these gorgeous umbrellas would be a treat!

  • Jess 5 years ago

    what a great range of ‘brollies’ – would definitely make the winter days of melbourne a little more fun

  • Hannah 5 years ago

    Oh Stepping Out in Style, how you would brighten up my icy, nose dripping, finger numbing, drizzly Melbourne mornings and warm me like my own personal ray of sunshine above my head!

  • Simon Taylor 5 years ago

    Gina and May – a May zing! my partner would LOVE Ms Starlet! So cool!

  • Lu 5 years ago

    I have been searching high and low for a colourful umbrella in Melbourne, but it is proving difficult. There are no end of options in the UK, so I am very happy to see some gorgeous, grey day repellent jolly brollies here in Oz. All of them are lovely but Topsy I think is my fave.

  • Marjory 5 years ago

    ‘Topsy’ is at the top of my list; those colours would cheer the rainiest of rainy day blues!

  • Alex 5 years ago

    Ms. Starlet! A classic design..

  • Claire 5 years ago

    Miss Starlet for sure.

  • janelle 5 years ago

    Ooh! Carousel if you please!

    Topsy topsy topsy! Oh please let me win this one!

  • Kara Paterson 5 years ago

    Gorgoues designs…Perfect for winter..adds a touch of colour which brightens even the gloomiest days..!!

  • Melanie 5 years ago

    Topsy, Topsy, Topsy. I would be doing the rain dance if it one, willing it to rain so I could get out there!

  • juliet 5 years ago

    topsy! although i love them all…

  • carmen 5 years ago

    You seriously cannot pick just one! They are all devine.

  • shka 5 years ago

    adore the ms starlet.. with topsy following a close behind.
    these will definitely bring some cheer to those cold rainy melbourne days!!

  • leahmarlie 5 years ago

    Oh my, you have no idea how much I needed “Stepping out in Style” this morning. It would have complemented my outfit brilliantly :) Plus the whole ‘keeping me dry in the pre-Spring Melbourne drizzle’ thing……

  • Laura 5 years ago

    it’s so hard to choose as there are so many funky new designs! but i would love sweets, please?! X

  • sarah g 5 years ago

    I was recently looking at marimekko and blunt umbrellas …. but very hom hum compared to GINA AND MAY ‘s collection ….. Would I be reaching for the stars if I said I am in absolute love with Miss Starlet

  • Sandra 5 years ago

    goodness! they are just so lovely. i think topsy is my fave design. what a hard choose. they are all just so divine.

  • lynette 5 years ago

    Bring on the rain!

  • Mel 5 years ago

    Gorgeous! Yes the Topsy is divine with those wonderful bursts of colour – and looks big enough to cover a pregnant tummy too (let’s just say after this morning’s rain, I have a rather strange looking big wet patch on the protruding tum – lesson learnt for buying a cheap and nasty umbrella)!

  • Helen 5 years ago

    Oh Ms Starlet, how you do go on…it’s enough to make me hope for rain!

  • Kate 5 years ago

    It’s a tough choice between Miss Starlet and Topsy but Topsy wins by a nose….I think it would be pretty hard not to smile on a miserable rainy day if you were carrying it (or saw it coming towards you!).

  • Eve 5 years ago

    Gimme! Gimme! Gimme!
    I’m without umbrella at the moment and would really benefit from a Gina & May….especially seeing as they’re so awesomely cute!

  • Colleen 5 years ago

    Black and white is always a winning combination, stripes are a personal favourite, but for sheer exuberance, topsy has my vote.

  • Kerri 5 years ago

    I love Ms Starlet

  • Patrice 5 years ago

    Perfect giveaway for a misty rain day. ‘Stepping out in style’ is my fave!

  • RAEWYN 5 years ago

    whilst I never use a ‘devil’s stick’ myself (because I am tall, people are always trying to poke my eye out with their umbrella staves) I do know a certain friend who would love ‘Ms Starlet’ so I hope I win so I can present it to her!

  • Clare 5 years ago

    Topsy! I’ve only just discovered this winter how chic a proper grownup umbrella (as opposed to the pink and green one with ducks on it that your mum bought you from Woolies…) makes you feel. I’m a convert.

  • Angela Ciavarella 5 years ago

    They are all adorable!! I do have a soft spot for “Bubbles”!

  • Maddy 5 years ago

    Stepping out in style is an absolute winner – love it!

  • Dyani 5 years ago

    My boy just broke my favorite umbrella this winter… He would certainly NOT be allowed to borrow my brolly if it happened to be one of these delicious designs. ‘Stepping Out In Style’ is my fave :)

  • Jacinta 5 years ago

    Oooo I love the stepping out in style one, cuute!

  • spanna 5 years ago

    Oh golly! I love the Ms. Starlet design. Very striking!

  • Shansy 5 years ago

    Ooh! Carousel FTW! Not only do I love a good ride around a carousel, but this particular umbrella screams of romantic sunsets. Initially seeing this brolly it reminded me of my favourite rock candy that my neighbour used to bring home after his trips to London, DELICIOUS. I’d never really considered why I’ve always loved this colour combination, but now I do – sunsets and candy.

  • Kate 5 years ago

    Ms Starlet would bring a little elegance to a wet Adelaide day like today.

  • bianca 5 years ago

    I love Topsy and Sweets but my fav is definitely Stepping out in style as it would be the best fit for my wardrobe. Winter would so much more pleasant if only everyone would ditch their boring black umbrella for these lovely bright ones!
