I've fancied this umbrella since the first time I went into the dressing rooms of Kate Spade, 5th Ave. In proper Kate spirit, they are playfully decorated with zebra print wallpaper by Scalamandré. A short google image search later and I happened upon a photo of this rainy day accessory. I couldn't believe it, but almost a year passed and I had yet to see one on the streets of NYC. Finally, just a few days ago it happened! I emerged from the subway on the Upper East Side and while struggling to open my it's-going-to-break-anyday drugstore umbrella, I look up and there it is, being carried along Lexington by a tiny, 60-something lady.

What a smile-provoking way to add color and whimsy to an overcast day...
