Just got sent this V V Brown rain poncho pic. I love a rain poncho. I still can’t bring myself to chuck my plastic flamingo-adorned one which holds many a fond memory – in particular a spectacular New Order gig in Hyde Park a few summers ago. Then, more recently, there’s the Marc by Marc silver one that is so big it’s more like a rain kaftan that a poncho. It’s coming everywhere with me this summer if today’s ridic weather is anything to go by (what is this, the monsoon season?).
The V V Brown one is a collaboration with Orange (duh!) who will dole out a free poncho to the first 100 punters who request one from their Chill ‘n’ Charge tent (free mobile phone charging, internet access and V V Brown gig – oh my!) on the Saturday of this year’s Glastonbury festival.
