The item comes with the warning that it is "not waterproof".

Gucci & Adidas are facing backlash in China this week, after they released a new €1,300 designer umbrella - that doesn't even keep people dry.

Called the "sun umbrella" on Gucci's website, the piece comes with the warning that it is "not waterproof and is meant for sun protection or decorative use".

Despite some controversy over the item, it's proven more popular in the West where a waiting list has formed on Gucci's UK website ahead of its release here.
