Umbrella Skirt by Cecilia Felli Makes a Perfect Waterproof Wardrobe

Conventional rain gear often includes a raincoat, goulashes and perhaps even some sort angling overalls, but besides rubber boots, could you have ever pictured something as cute as the Umbrella Skirt by Cecilia Felli to complete your April showers ensemble?

The budding Italian designer has exercised resourcefulness at its finest, taking a pair of broken parasols and turning them into patterned pleated skirts. She has even kept the fabric ties in tact to allude to the textile's original function. Extra strips of material ( perhaps from the umbrellas' cloth cases) were added to make charming bows, and it seems as though the folding metal frames have been kept attached, because one Umbrella Skirt by Cecilia Felli still has plastic safety tips at the end of each pleat.
