Burberry‘s iconic heritage plaid print has recently been the center of controversy, with the British luxury brand suing Target over the misuse of the instantly-recognizable print. The pattern itself originally started life as the lining in Burberry’s staple trench coats and has since gone on to be one of the most well-known elements of the label and one of the most renowned patterns in fashion worldwide.

Former creative director Christopher Bailey championed the resurgence of the pattern and in recent months, we’ve seen it cover everything from backpacks and slides to plastic-dipped baseball caps. The latest must-have accessory – and arguably the most practical – to get the tan check treatment is the humble umbrella.

Crafted, of course, from a waterproof fabric, this chic umbrella features the vintage-style plaid pattern throughout, with an elegant leather handle completing the high-end accessory. A gold-tone disc upon the top boasts Burberry’s engraved text logo, as does the press-stud on the strap that acts as the fastening when the umbrella is folded away.

This compact but undeniably stylish umbrella also comes with an outer sleeve – buy yours now at matchesfashion.com for $264 USD. Why not pair it with these rain boots for the ultimate weather-proof look? For more ultra-practical pieces from Burberry, check out this adorable mini backpack.
