Did you know that Kuala Lumpur experiences 221 days of rain annually on average? That’s 60 percent of the year! Now that you’re aware of just how much we have to battle through torrents here, it’s time to equip yourself with some of these luxury umbrellas.
Even on dry days, you still need to shield yourself from the sun. In Malaysia, we get some intense sunlight, and it is extreme on most days according to the UV Index Scale. Being out in the sun in Malaysia without any protection can expose us to some serious risks, such as skin cancer, sunburn, and eye damage — so umbrellas are (and should be) an essential accessory to keep with you before you walk out the door.
While many umbrellas would do the trick at keeping you dry and shaded, these luxury umbrellas are the ones to cop — especially to complement your fashion choices du jour. Equally as sturdy as they are beautiful, these umbrellas can weather through the deluge and heat that they are up against here, making them the perfect investment.
Our picks here are costlier than the average umbrellas, but these are definitely built to last — so you won’t be cycling them out of your rotation anytime soon. A smart and sustainable shopper knows it’s always better to bite the bullet and make a one-time investment rather than having to constantly replace a staple.
With all that in mind, read on to shop our top choices of some of the most fashionable umbrellas available in the market.
Here are some of the best luxury umbrellas that money can buy:
