Fashion Week Rain Check

1202403214No Fashion Week coverage today, sadly. (Back tomorrow with Marc Jacobs, if he decides to start before midnight.) But since we’re still in judgment mode, we decided to turn a critical eye to one accessory that’s been in heavy rotation this week: the umbrella.

Here are a few stand-outs that will put your corporate logo-ed freebie to shame.

Louis Vuitton Arc en Ciel. Cowhide handle, signature monogram, $580 price tag.

Asprey botanical print. You really can’t beat a British umbrella, and this aristocratic luxury-goods retailer makes the best. About $300.

Rihanna for Totes. We admit it: We’re still not sick of “Umbrella.” And we would totally consider purchasing something from the singer’s second collection of umbrellas, available at Macy’s. (This one starred with her at last year’s MTV Music Awards.) $20-$50.

Marimekko Petrooli. Though this Finnish textile company’s Unikko poppy pattern is a classic, we also love its lesser-known designs. $40.

Anthropologie Sunshower. This cutely printed option is priced to prevent panic attacks after you realize you left it on the T. $24.
