Two Kiwi Icons Reunite To Release The Limited Edition ‘Wild Flowers’ Umbrella

World leaders in the umbrella market, Blunt have once again collaborated with iconic Kiwi fashion designer Karen Walker to create the ‘Karen Walker for Blunt Wild Flowers Umbrella. Known for vibrant and eccentric prints, the Blunt x Karen Walker limited edition umbrella combines style and almost indestructible quality ideal for the unpredictable New Zealand weather.

“After two successful collaborations already with Karen Walker, we are excited to continue together to create a beautifully designed product with quality materials and quality manufacturing,” says Scott Kington of Bunt Umbrellas.  “In an increasingly disposable world, our belief is that we don’t want to make products that end up in landfill. Collaborating with a designer who feels strongly about being part of our solution to this problem is very important to us.”

 

The Wild Flowers print used for this umbrella is from the Karen Walker archives and was inspired by eccentric aristocratic English country gardeners. Like the rest of the Blunt range, the Wild Flowers umbrella is designed to be functional, stylish, virtually indestructible and can withstand gales of up to 120 kph.“What I love about creating designs with Blunt is that the core product is so well designed and is such a successfully executed product. Our style’s always based on mixing utility and practicality with glamour and I think that this umbrella captures that perfectly.” Karen says.

 The limited edition Karen Walker for Blunt Wild Flowers Umbrella will be available online from Wednesday 2nd May at bluntumbrellas.co.nz and karenwalker.com as well as Karen Walker stores nationwide, Smith & Caughey’s and selected retailers for RRP is $119NZD.
