    Background: UNDER THE SIGN OF THE WINDMILL, AT PARIS'S INFAMOUS MOULIN ROUGE, THE UMBRELLA MAKERS OF FRANCE MUSTERED ALL THEIR FORCES ON THURSDAY LAST (26 OCTOBER) AND REVEALED TO PUBLIC GAZE THEIR PLANS TO COMBAT TOMORROW'S RAIN.

    PARIS MAKES FEW CONCESSIONS TO THE ROLLED BLACK UMBRELLA, TRADITIONAL SCEPTRE OF THE BUSINESSMAN'S REGALIA. COLOURS ABOUND; EVEN THE MEN'S UMBRELLAS ARE TEMPTED INTO GREENS AND BROWNS.

    AS FAR AS THE LADIES ARE CONCERNED, THE COLOURS SHOW NO RESTRAIN WHATSOEVER. THEY DO, HOWEVER, PAY TRIBUTE TO THE PASSAGE OF THE SEASON - MORE MUTED JONES FOR WINTER, BURSTING INTO AN ACID BRILLIANCE FOR THE RITE OF SPRING.

    INNOVATIONS IN THE UMBRELLA WORLD ARE NATURALLY RARE, BUT THIS YEAR THE BROLLY RIB HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO A RECORD 52 CENTIMETRES. THIS ALLOWS FOR GOOD PROTECTION OF THE SHOULDER-PADS, AND IS SAID TO FAVOUR THE SHELTER-A-DEUX.

    FOR THE CHILDREN, OR FOR THOSE WHO MIGHT HAVE SHRUNK DURING THE LAST DOWNPOUR, THERE ARE THE SCALED-DOWN VERSIONS OF THE PARENT MODELS. BOTH LARGE AND SMALL VENTURE INTO THE WORLD OF EXOTIC SKINS AND FABRICS, AND IN MANY CASES THE STEMS ARE CARVED FROM RAREST WOODS.

    FINALLY, THE ULTIMATE IN RAINWEAR - THE UNDERWATER UMBRELLA - GUARANTEED PROTECTION AGAINST EVERY DOWNPOUR.
