With its majestic colour palette and ornate Asian-inspired design, the Shanhan collection will whisk the wearer back in time to 3,000 years ago and the era of the Shang Dynasty. This was the period in which the Shanhan, the first Chinese fan, was created. The muse for this collection is derived from the significance and artistry behind this special Chinese fan. Linked once again to the beauty and utility of the horse, these first fans were tied to a horse-drawn carriage and created in order to offer refuge from strong sunshine or rainfall. There is also a romance associated with these fans and one that reveals itself in Salama Khalfan’s stunning new collection.
