the YOU + MORE! jellyfish umbrellas faithfully reproduce the patters of three different jellyfish species: moon jellyfish, red jellyfish and octopus jellyfish. the creation of all patterns was done together with the designers and a keeper at the kamo aquarium, resulting in umbrellas that aim to make you feel like a jellyfish on a rainy day. this feeling has been achieved through the transparency of the material and the gradation of the color that perfectly expresses the jellyfish.
