Arm Candy: 13 Fashion Accessory Museums For Trendsetters
Umbrella and Parasol Museum. “They don’t make ’em like they used to” is a statement that applies to many of the fashion accessories worthy of their own museums. Umbrellas, however, seem to have suffered particularly over the years, going from the exquisite, ornate, handmade works of wearable art on display at this Italian museum to unattractive, utilitarian pieces of plastic. Parasols, the umbrella’s fair-weather sisters, have fared even worse, all but eradicated thanks to fashionable tans and sunscreen from a tube.
