We wanted to release a quality folded umbrella that would combine the strength and stability of our full size models, along with the classic, traditional styling that our customer’s love. We believe we’ve succeeded.
Available in Dark Navy, Orange & Yellow, Our Whangee Cane Crook Handle Umbrellas have a solid 10-rib structure which will hold up against strong winds. The shaft is made of 2 sections, and extends from a length of 45 to 70cm. The Canopy opens to just under a meter in diameter, the perfect size for city walking. Every handle is unique as it is made from natural Bamboo.
The umbrella features subtle London Undercover branding on the snap button and inside of the outer sleeve. There is a gunmetal tip cup to keep everything tidy and a nice whangee tip which is again unique on each. All umbrella features a signature orange London Undercover button.
Mr. Bathing Ape x London Undercover Mr ABC Camo Umbrella is available now.
We have collaborated with Monocle to produce this special solid Maple wood umbrella. The dark green umbrella is hand-crafted from a single piece of polished maple with a continuous shaft/handle, industrial frame and bronze ferrule.
The wood has been stained, polished and varnished. We’ve used a luxury poly fabric from Italy which is very hardwearing and repels water perfectly. The panels have been cut by hand into eight triangles in opposite directions to make full use of the fabric and allow minimum wastage. We’ve carefully stitched them together to form the canopy which is then threaded on to a very traditional, industrial-strength frame. The umbrella features a very subtle white printed Monocle logo on the outside and collaboration descriptor on the inside.
Available exclusively at Monocle shops in London, New York, Toronto and Hong Kong and online
In 1995, Fraser Moss and Jimmy Collins borrowed industrial designer Raymond Loewy’s slogan, ‘You must create’ as the name of their new clothing company . YMC, as it would come to be known, took initial inspiration from work wear, the football terraces of the early 80s and American & British military wear. Since 1995, YMC has evolved into a highly significant label. They are now among the most important in modern British clothing.
YMC have come together with London Undercover to produce a set of two outstanding Navajo print umbrellas as part of their A/W 12 Collection. Each umbrella is made with a single piece of solid, dark brown Maple wood with combined shaft & handle. The Navajo External features two subtly different Navajo style prints on both the inside and out. The Navajo Internal is comprised of a deluxe Dark Navy poly cotton with the native-american inspired print on the inside. Each Umbrella includes a special collaborative wooden tag.

Staple Design was founded in NYC by Jeff Ng (aka Jeff Staple). Staple gained itself a considerable following as an underground streetwear company and opened it’s own retail store / art gallery, Reed Space in 2002. Perhaps their most famous product were the NYC Pigeon Dunks, a pair of trainers produced in collaboration with Nike. There were only around 200 pairs released exclusively at the store in New York. The release famously caused huge riots.
A few years ago in Paris, Jamie was introduced to Jeff. After much Pigeon discussion, the two decided to put a Staple, NY twist on the LU London Pigeon Monogram umbrella. This is the result…
