Highlight Story

Two young Parisian fashionistas — Eloise Gilles and Raphaelle de Panafieu — have made attempts to make the classic folding fan a fashion accessory, by getting involved with one of Paris’ last remaining fan-makers Duvelleroy.

Their first collection — 12 exquisite models concocted by hand from traditional fabrics like silk and feathers and state-of-the-art materials like carbon fibre — is to make its retail debut later this month. It’s priced at $645.
