UPF50+ Elegant UV Sun Parasol. Cosmopolitan, Black on White.

18 reviews

A stylish UV sun parasol, with a UPF50+ rating and a uniquely elegant design.  A wind vent and flat canopy helps to create a wind-resistant design, while the unique fabric of the canopy blocks 98% of UV rays and looks effortlessly Summery. Weighing 250-280 grams, these parasols are lightweight yet sturdy.

The Cosmopolitan range of parasols have elegant wooden handles and are finished with a neat trim around the edges of a white parasol.

This “stick” style of sun parasol is available with either a short handle or long handle. Women under 160cm tall (5'2") find the short handle more comfortable, while taller women find the longer handle more comfortable to hold.

Why our customers love it

Inspired by our popular Duchess parasol, the Cosmopolitan Collection is effortlessly elegant with the added benefit of two options in handle-length.  

The short handle style is suitable for ladies under 160 cm and is also popular for little girls. The long handle style is more comfortable for women over 160cm.

They are classic white in colour, to complement all outfits, with a trim on the edge of the parasol and wind vent.

Perfectly sized, just for you: The short parasol has a folded length of 58cm or 23 inches, so it will fit inside luggage making it ideal for travellers. The long parasol is 78cm (31 inches), making it more comfortable for taller ladies to hold.

Elegant: The canopy is made from a cotton blend fabric, to differentiate its appearance from a rain umbrella and evoke a Summery vibe.

Carry Bag: Includes a matching carry bag with strap, to protect the sun umbrella and making it easy to carry when not in use.

Comfortable: Teardrop shared wooden handle, for a comfortable grip.

UPF50+ rating: Enhanced with a sun blocker to provide UPF50+ protection, which will keep you cooler and protect your skin, without giving you hat-hair. The sun blocker also causes water to bead off the canopy, so your parasol will protect you if you get caught in the rain.

Wind resistant: Wind vent built into the canopy, to allow any breeze to dissipate ensuring that your sun umbrella will not invert. 

Stunning and unique straight canopy, which allow the breeze to pass straight across rather than get caught in the curve of a rain umbrella.

Durable: Quality mechanism and fibreglass ribs, for a durable and long lasting sun umbrella.

Perfect coverage: The open canopy diameter (80cm or 31.5 inches) is the perfect size for a sun umbrella. It can be angled to maximise your shade to protect your upper body, whilst being unobtrusive in a crowd.

Lightweight: Weighs just 250 grams, making it comfortable to hold for any length of time.​

    My new best friend

    Love my sun parasol. Very thoughtful design. So lightweight that you hardly know you’re carrying it. Never leave home without it.

    Super cute

    Stylish design that I love, lightweight and easy to carry. Best of all it protects me from the sun and I don't have to worry about hat hair anymore

    Cosmopolitan Sun Parasol - Black on White

    The parasol was a surprise gift from my husband for use on walks when it is very sunny. I find the parasol light, elegant and extremely useful in warding off the sun from my pale skin. In short I love it.

    I love walking to work but detest hat hair and the crease a hat leave across your forehead when worn snug enough to not blow off by a breeze. My parasol is so stylish! I’m a little off 6 foot and the longer length arm is fabulous for me. I’m always receiving compliments upon my arrival at work. Highly recommend to ladies who love sun protection and great hair!

    Lovely product!

    I bought the small size, which is perfect for me (I’m about 160cm). It’s light and the handle feels comfortable in my hand. It folds away easily too. Will get one for my mum who was very impressed with it.

    The parasol is excellent but

    The parasol is excellent but we needed to alter the case a bit.

    Beautiful solution!

    This umbrella is perfect. Hats don’t cover shoulders and arms, and I love being able to walk knowing I’m protected. It’s cooler too. Couldn’t ask for me. It’s strong, mechanism is sturdy and of course it LOOKS gorgeous ☺️!

    Amazing gift idea

    I have one myself and love it. I get tons of comments on my du parasol both in Australia and abroad. The 2 additional purchases are for gifts. I know they will be just the right thing; useful, elegant and stylish.

    Great product, handle too long!

    I bought this as I thought it would "fit" but in fact at 5'5" the handle is too long and it's hard to carry. So I have gifted it and now bought a folding one, way better for me! I love having no hat hair and the extent of the shade that I get. I also love being able to pop it in my bag so if we're going out I'm not carrying along stick all the time!

    Elegance in the sun

    A Christmas gift for a friend, who loves her new parasol. Elegant, practical, compact. Great design, colour and gives elegant protection from the sun.

    A brilliant staple

    The sunbrella is an elegant and practical solution for me when going from work meeting to meeting and running around a hat isn’t always practical as you ended up trying to accomodate taking it on and off
