French Designer Umbrellas from Guy de Jean

Saturday, 15 June 2013  |  Admin

I thought we would take a look at more of our designer umbrellas in today's Brolliesgalore blog post. In particular, focussing on the delightful French stylings of design team Guy de Jean.

Guy de Jean's umbrellas are truly unique, and have an identifiable look that comes purely from Guy de Jean's attention to detail, craftsmanship and design. One particular design that stands out as purely 'Guy de Jean' is the use of lovingly-created line drawings of various character and city scenes.

With a history dating back to the 1920s, the Guy de Jean name has become synonymous with French boutique umbrella design. The business has grown over the years and the umbrella collection have always remained highly creative and varied. They have never stopped evolving, always gaining in originality and elegance. New techniques, new ideas, the choice of fabrics, the handles, the expertise and the style unique to Guy de Jean, all have contributed to the success and world-famous reputation of one of the greatest names in fashion.

Therefore we are happy that we are able to offer these stunning designs at Brolliesgalore. And today we thought we would focus on some of the popular Guy de Jean styles that have just come back in stock.
