Le Parapluie de Cherbourg x Tournaire Paris
Le Parapluie de Cherbourg and the Tournaire jewelry house present two umbrellas: Alchimie and Engrenages, the result of their collaboration.
Their love of French craftsmanship led designers Charles Yvon and Mathieu Tournaire to collaborate to create these exceptional umbrellas, combining the heritage of each of the Houses.
The art bronze umbrella handles are made in the Tournaire workshop in Montbrison. The canvas and umbrella mechanism are then added at the Manufacture de Parapluies in Cherbourg.

The black canvas of the umbrella is enhanced by the Tournaire and Cherbourg umbrella logos, embroidered in gold thread. Both models feature distinctive handles.
The Alchimie umbrella features the shapes of Tournaire's iconic Alchimie collection: the square, the triangle and the round, representing the past, the present and the future, symbols of life's journey and human evolution.
The Engrenages umbrella features a multitude of gears, universal symbols of transmission and movement. For Mathieu Tournaire, these cogs represent both the passage of time and the different members of a family: each represents a member, and the more cogs there are together, the more forces multiply. No matter the size of the cog, each one is essential to the smooth running of the whole.
On both models, a Maison Tournaire x Le Parapluie de Cherbourg label is also engraved on the underside of the handle.
