Couverture & The Garbstore is the brainchild of ex Paul Smith designers Emily Dyson

and Ian Paley. Emily has been running Couverture for over ten years, relocating

from its original store on the King’s Road in 2008. Ian has worked with R.Newbold,

Levi’s, Burberry and is also the founder of One True Saxon.

Couverture & The Garbstore was voted Cult Shop 2008 by The Times and continues

to be one of the best and most appealing shopping boutiques in London. We are

extremely pleased that they are now stocking London Undercover.

Our second collaboration with Transport for London. The Mini-Folded umbrella uses

a pattern inspired by London Transport material in the 1960s. It features the famous

roundel in a subtle, grey monogram pattern on 100% recycled fabric. Made using

recycled materials, the compact umbrella for the modern commuter comes in its own
