Wet Wet Wet — long-forgotten band or basically every day this past week? We Londoners are no strangers to gray skies and raindrops, but our recent soggy streak has us wondering just what we did to piss off Mother Nature so badly.
Of course, we can't complain too much. This dismal holiday weather gives us an opportunity to break out our trendy trenches, not to mention some 'brollies that — gasp! — might actually brighten our day, thanks to their playful prints, designer pedigrees, and, in one case, a colour-changing technology that activates when wet. (In other words, all the bloody time.)
