The new Akomplice Paradise umbrella is the tits

Your own little Paradise in a thunderstorm. Your own little Paradise in a thunderstorm.

Let’s be honest, most guys don’t want to use an umbrella. Well when I say “most guys,” I’m really talking about myself. Carry-along canopies are cumbersome and not an accessory that I HAVE to own. And I’m not one for superstition, but it is well known that opening one indoors will lead to seven-years bad luck.

That was before I saw the Paradise umbrella from Akomplice.

From the outside it looks like a standard umbrella. Black exterior, retractable water repellent material, classic hooked handle. Doubles as a fencing sword. But stand beneath it, and you will bathe in the glory of its true appearance. It’s the unassuming façade of a neighborhood restaurant with a secret, back-alley entrance for those looking for a real party — members only. For this umbrella, I’m going to closet the waterproof shell.

Let it rain.

This may be the breast, I mean best umbrella I've ever seen. This may be the breast, I mean best umbrella I’ve ever seen.

The Summer 2104 collection is now available for purchase and from the words of Akomplice co-founder Patrick Liberty, “this is one of my favorite collections that Akomplice has ever come out with.” This is a company doing big things. We back it.
