Umbrellas of Cherbourg Collection
Posted on September 24 2013
We were so delighted to find out that the latest collection by Les Queues de Sardines, one of our favorite hosiery brands, was inspired by "Les Parapluies de Cherbourg," one of our favorite French films, starring the lovely Catherine Deneuve. Husband-and-wife design team M & O created this capsule collection in honor of the 50th anniversary of Jacques Demy's famous musical, which was filmed not far from their factory in Normandy. If you haven't seen it, you really should--it's a technicolor dream! It may inspire you to buy a gorgeous umbrella, don ribbons and gloves, and perhaps get a little matchy-matchy with your outfits this Fall, but even the least girly Lille fan can appreciate the simple, elegant design of the Cherbourg tights, which should put a smile on your face throughout the never-ending rainy season that seems to already be upon us.
