Some of the inspirational imagery that was behind the creation of our beautiful Princess and the Pea Sun Umbrella…
and the result….
A little sneak peek at the production process of a Basil Bangs brolly…
For Basil its all about the detail. Here are some shots that inspired us while on the production journey of our signature Basil Hinge.
The hinge was designed to make it easy to change the angle of the umbrella. Remember those old hinges from the 70’s with the wing nut that you always used to loose in the sand? Well the Basil hinge is designed to eliminate this and to lock and unlock the hinge, you simple rotate a switch a little more than a quarter turn. It’s easy for everyone to use and has been also been tested on some people that suffer from terrible arthritis.
Slim Aarons is a very famous personality and photographer who lead an amazing life capturing the lives of the rich and famous. Aarons made his career out of what he called “photographing attractive people doing attractive things in attractive places.” “I knew everyone,” he said in an interview with The (London) Independent in 2002. “They would invite me to one of their parties because they knew I wouldn’t hurt them. I was one of them.”
Today, a few of our favourites to remind you of the summer ahead.
