season of the rain
Face our region’s regular rainstorms with Mr Stanford’s Singapore Red umbrella (£165, S$300) – a sprightly, eye-catching piece from their RED collection, created in recognition of World Aids Day. Beneath its raindrop-printed canopy, the Singapore Red features nickel finishes, an engraved sliding tip cup, a solid wood shaft and a natural bark handle in Chestnut.
Even better is the fact that the umbrella, which is limited to 500 pieces, stands for an excellent cause. 70 per cent of the online retail prices of Mr Stanford’s RED collection will go straight to its philanthropic partner, the Elton John AIDS Foundation.
