Power and Grace - The New Umbrella from Spey Co. of Washington, DC

Go ahead. Let it rain. Spey has you covered with the newest addition to our collection of little luxuries for men and women of distinction: the Spey umbrella. Handmade in England in centuries-old craftsman tradition using the finest materials and detailing, our umbrella boasts a rich canopy of midnight blue to complement a well-appointed look. High-grade, water-repellant polyester stretches over an 8-rib steel frame for lasting quality and a sleek profile; the perfect combination of power and grace.

 

It’s all in the details

The length of the umbrella is approximately 36 inches from handle to ferrule, and comes complete with a matching sleeve for a chic presentation and a sliding gilt tip cup to protect your umbrella when closed. When opened, the umbrella is roughly 41 inches in diameter.

The Spey umbrella is available in two handle expressions: honeyed maple for a light and chic personality fit to brighten the dreariest day, and the enigmatic horn inlay set with English bovine horn at the handle end. Both are exquisitely polished to whisk away beads of rain or snow and to rest comfortably in the hand.

While the umbrella is an essential accessory for the Washingtonian who jets between meetings at the Capitol, dinners for two, and performances at the Kennedy Center – arriving coolly and refined no matter the elements – it also makes for a wonderful gift. From our home in DC, Spey ships umbrellas to thrilled recipients across the United States. Blow away your friends (pun unapologetically intended) with the gift of Spey.

 

Strumming in the rain

Continuing our commitment to champion arts and artists in the District, Spey tapped experimental bassist Daniel Ostrow, pictured, to debut the signature umbrella. Equipped with a double bass, elegant tuxedo, and the Spey umbrella in hand, Mr. Ostrow cut a dapper figure ready to confront Mother Nature in style.
