Blunt Umbrella Akira Limited Metro UV+ is the world's ONLY automatic opening collapsible sunproof umbrella with canopy designed by the great Japanese Australian couturier Akira Isogawa. And it has a FIVE YEAR GUARANTEE - it's that good.

It fits in a bag, briefcase or backpack, opens with the press of a big button that's flush with the handle.

Unlike conventional umbrella canopies, the Metro UV+ also offers 99% UV protection – so acts as a parasol in summer, whilst being an umbrella in winter.

Akira Isogawa is one of Australia’s most revered fashion designers. He rose to International attention when draped over the fabulous Naomi Campbell. In 2007 he was created Australia’s first Fashion Laureate, he’s had his own stamp in Australia Post’s “Australian Legends" series, he’s designed for Australian Ballet’s “Romeo & Juliet”, and has had solo exhibitions at the National Gallery of Victoria, and at Sydney’s Powerhouse Museum.

Akira famously scorns fashion in favour of developing a traditional Japanese aesthetic in contemporary settings. He’s a perfect partner for the mighty New Zealand Blunt Umbrella Company who coined the word “throwaway-ism” to describe nasty umbrellas that break and become part of landfill

This beautiful chrysanthemum print design is very limited. When it’s gone…etc
