US$50,000 Crocodile Skin Umbrella from Billionaire Couture

 

By LAWRENCE TAN

This crocodile skin umbrella by Italian men’s luxury brand
Billionaire Couture gives a whole new meaning to the oft used phrase “saving
for a rainy day”. That’s because with a price tag of US$50,000, the prospective
owner of this brolly is unlikely to allow his prized possession to touch a drop of
rain.

Made of black top-grade crocodile skin, specially treated
for water resistance, you would have to place a special order exclusively
through Billionaire Couture’s new London boutique on Sloane Street, SW1 to get
your hands on this umbrella.

Billionaire Couture is the brainchild of Formula One mogul
Flavio Briatore and designer Angelo Galasso, and was billed by its founders as
the “first international haute couture line exclusively for men”.

It features
both made-to-measure and ready-to-wear collections, which include bags, shoes,
coats, clothing and accessories like watches, ties, cuff links and belts, all
handmade in limited quantities.

Among its list of equally illustrious clientele
include the likes of Paul McCartney, Mohamed Al-Fayed, Geoffrey Moore, David
Beckham, Mike Tindall and Sean "Diddy" Combs.
