Oddly Decorated Summer Parasols Add Novel Touch to Fashions

Sunshades grotesquely decorated with fur, feathers and various kinds of fabrics have appeared at some of the English resorts as novelties in summer fashions. Designs of different kinds of flowers and birds are worked on them, forming distinctive touches to the beach or holiday costume. One of the first of this style bore a realistic representation of a cat’s face of white fur with painted glass eyes.
