Harbour City umbrellas brighten weather with a touch of kawaii

After the success of the joint exhibition “Osamu Goods Exhibition by Harada Osamu” in July and August this year, Hong Kong’s Harbour City again joins forces with Osamu Goods, founded by Japanese illustration maestro Harada Osamu, for a limited-edition umbrella collection.

Since its establishment in 1976, Osamu Goods has garnered global acclaim for its adorable characters and merchandise, capturing the hearts of girls in Japan and abroad. Influenced by American culture during his own upbringing, Osamu blends the vibrant artistry of American comics with the graceful simplicity of Japanese aesthetics in his designs. Throughout the years, Osamu Goods has introduced a wide array of umbrellas, each with its own unique flair.

For this special collaboration, Harbour City sought the expertise of celebrated Japanese graphic designer Kazunari Hattori. Stepping away from the brand’s signature vibrant design style, Hattori enlarges the endearing figures of Jack and Jill to cover the entire umbrella canopy and opts for a soft and subtle beige tone as the base color, complemented by bold gray and black lines. The handle features their portraits as exquisite adornments.

These umbrellas can be redeemed with sales receipts at Harbour City or donation from 25 September to 5 November. For more information, call (852) 2118-8666 or visit www.harbourcity.com.hk.
