Bringing color into any day, Coci la elle makes hand-painted parasols, not two of them the same.
Startling, beautiful, at times with a pinch of humor – the rich expressions of these delicately crafted umbrellas overf low the pages of this book with plentiful photographs and illustrations. As if in a drizzle of light and rain.
Coci la elle
Chika Higashi started Coci la elle in 2010, a one-item only shop for hand-made parasols–parasols that are painted or festooned with embroidery. Currently Coci la elle produces umbrellas and scarfs with original prints, and also a range of accessories. The brand name is a nuanced reference to the Japanese term 拵える–koshiraeru, to make.
