Brise de Charm

One of the most spectacular designs, despite its apparent simplicity, is "brise de charm" ("charming breeze"), a scarf depicting various fans beautifully decorated with horse scenes, birds, a lady's portrait and also floral patterns.

Recently I was thinking of my travels to far-away countries (such as Japan) and so I thought of the fan, this simple invention that became all-too-practical in the context of hot climates (in contrast to the heavy snow falls this winter, we need reasons to dream).  The fan's delicate make and the skillful drawings on it render it an objet d'art, feminine by excellence, that never fails to inspire.
