How are you beating the heat and the sun these days? The heat wave stateside is intense. Recently I was discussing with friends on twitter that we should bring back the parasol.
This video from 1924 called Sunshade Styles shows a range of parasols to keep the sun at bay. Maybe you’ll find inspiration in the pleats and unusual shapes, such as the flowers and cat.
I think my favorite parasol pictured here is the one with sheer material and ostrich feathers.
