Fan-Favourite Umbrellas from Film & TV
Actors may have the starring role, but where would our leading men and women be without their supporting cast? Sometimes, that supporting cast comes in the form of fabulous accessories!
Umbrellas are often used on the silver screen to convey an emotion about a scene. Sometimes they are used to show reflection or change. Other times, they are used so two characters can have a private conversation.
In this blog, we will show you some of the scene-stealing umbrellas from your favourite TV shows and films, plus how you can recreate the look.
The Umbrella Academy
We’re excited to see that this superhero TV show has recently been renewed for a third season over on Netflix. It has our favourite word in its name, so it’s only fitting that the show features some sleek brollies.
Based on the graphic novel series by singer Gerard Way, The Umbrella Academy features two iconic umbrellas. The first is the black hook-handled umbrella, which is favoured by Sir Reginald Hargreeves and what inspired the name for the eccentric gentleman’s superhero team. Step out in Sir Reginald’s dapper style with our Knightsbridge-1 umbrella!
The second umbrellas is twirled by fan-favourite Klaus Hargreeves. This pink birdcage umbrella can’t keep the spirits away from Number Four, but at least it kept the rain away in season one. Our Birdcage-1 Pink umbrella is a perfect match to Klaus’ brolly of choice.
No one can deny that Mary Poppins made umbrellas absolutely magical for generations of Disney fans. Many of us as children spent hours out in the rain with our little brollies, jumping up in a hope that we could learn to fly like everyone’s favourite nanny.
The best part? You can carry the nostalgic magic with you as a grown-up too! Get the Mary Poppins-style with this Soho-1 Navy umbrella. The colour matches Mary’s coat beautifully. (We are sorry but talking parrot handle is also not included with the umbrella. We will leave that part to your imagination!)
Ever wanted to walk down the street feeling like a secret agent? While we can’t get you a job at MI6, we can provide you with an umbrella that looks like a classic Bond gadget. The spike umbrella was seen in For Your Eyes Only with Roger Moore playing Bond. The umbrella in the film was to be used by the enemy – when the umbrella is opened, spikes come out and the umbrella snaps shut on the person.
We don’t sell deadly umbrellas, but we do sell the aptly-named Magnum-1 Auto Black. With a wooden hook-handle and a gadget-worthy automatic opening, it’s sure to make you feel as suave as 007.
Many girls have dreamt about Ewan McGregor serenading them. While we can’t provide Ewan, we can give you a similar umbrella to the one he is holding in the climax of the heart-warming Your Song scene in Moulin Rouge. His character, Christian, and the stunning Satine are not avoiding rain with this gorgeous umbrella, but are actually sheltering from a deluge of glitter and confetti. Recreate the romance with the similar Aerolite-1 Dark Red umbrella. If nothing else, it will help you avoid the rain while daydreaming about Mr McGregor at the bus stop.
There you have it! Your favourite brollies from the screen, matched and picked from our own collection of stunning umbrellas. Now you can add a subtle movie nod to your outfit – and look forward to feeling like a movie star next time it rains!
