Over the years, Hong Kong Harbour City has collaborated with many internationally renowned designers and artists to develop limited edition umbrellas – setting a trend and turning the everyday umbrella into a fashionable item. This summer, Harbour City invites internationally renowned comic artist from France, Floc’h, for his first ever collaboration with a shopping mall.
With his well-known and distinct drawing style “ligne claire” (French for “clear line”), Floc’h has specially created a series of comic characters under the theme of raining for Harbour City. Design collective “Communion W” has made use of the comic characters to design the Harbour City Limited Edition Umbrella and the first-ever kid’s raincoat with key message of ‘Nice Weather, isn’t it?’
The design of umbrella and kid’s raincoat this year is inspired by the classic characters, a father and a daughter of Floc’h’s comic. The illustrations depict the scene of the characters wandering down the streets of Paris in the rain, in which the father and daughter are enjoying themselves in the rain with various gestures. Father embraces the raindrops with open arms while the daughter dances happily to welcome the shower. In another scene, they both wear suit jackets and hats, leaning on the folded umbrella and wandering under the rain. The whole design concept conveys the message of ‘Nice Weather, isn’t it?’, which encourages everyone to appreciate the cool and refreshing rainy days and take a break from the hustle and bustle of busy life. Harbour City x Floc’h limited edition umbrella and kid’s raincoat can surely bring a little bit of fun and colour to rainy days.
First Launch of Limited Edition Kid’s Raincoat
Harbour City has launched a limited edition umbrella every year since 2002. This year Harbour City will also launch a kid’s raincoat for the first time. The raincoat is compatible to parent’s rain gear as the design concept and color tone perfectly match with the umbrella. With the lovely comic characters and ‘Nice Weather, isn’t it?’ tagline, the unique design will brighten you up on rainy days.
