We had a contest on the “unnamed jersey” designed by our very own Lauren Ayers. A contest won by customer Tim Ferguson when he suggested the French film opera, "The Umbrellas of Cherbourg" starring the 20 year old Catherine Deneuve (Geneviève) and Nino Castelnuovo (Guy) as two young lovers destined to live their lives together. Naming the jersey after this film made sense for TSH — set in France, a colorful umbrella shop and every film frame accented with flourishes of saturated blues, reds, pinks, and oranges…. The movie cinematography is kind how we feel about our TSH Resort Collection. It is how we want you to feel when you open our packages. It also corresponded with TSH’s love affair with french things like big bike races, quaint streets and romantic locales.
In watching the Umbrellas of Cherbourg again, we remembered the lovely opera with young love, a struggle to keep the small umbrella shop afloat, a far off war- but we forgot about about the melancholy moments, and how real life gets in the way of perfect endings. This reality somehow comforted us. We will not give spoilers here but definitely encourage you to watch this film on an upcoming lazy sunday. We hope this jersey can brighten your day like a brightly colored umbrella on a rainy day.
