Escape the Rain with New Collection of World-First Umbrellas

Where I’d Rather Be unveils brand new Destination Collection,transporting Brits across Europe and beyond…

With the rainy UK autumn well and truly upon us, Where I’d Rather Be invites you to escape the drizzle and brighten the miserable morning commute with its latest collection of visually captivating umbrellas.

Adding to the existing portfolio of breathtaking scenic landscapes and crafted using world-first 360° under canopy photography designs, the new Destination Collection features some of the world’s most renowned cities and holiday destinations.

Shelter from the rain immersed in true-to-life wraparound depictions of London, Paris and Portofino, or ‘journey’ further afield to the imposing pyramids of Egypt.

Where I’d Rather Be umbrellas are available in two styles and sizes; classic hook handle and compact folding. Handmade, hand sewn and manufactured using the highest quality materials, the umbrellas boast a water repellent coating to ensure a quick-dry canopy. They are also highly wind resistant and durable thanks to sturdy, yet flexible fibreglass and electroplated steel frames and shafts.

Retailing at £27.99 (classic) and £25.99 (folding), Where I’d Rather Be Destination Collection umbrellas offer a sense of escape without the expense of a city break or winter sun getaway; a practical, original and inspiring Christmas gift or stocking filler for friends or loved ones this year.

Where I’d rather be is the brainchild of Co-Founders, Juliet Shirbin and Anna Brownjohn, childhood friends from Australia, who were inspired whilst walking down Sydney’s Palm Beach on a rainy day.

Juliet Shirbin, Co-Founder, is available for comment or interview in relation to the product or business.
