‘Oriental Breeze’ wrist-watch collection brings back the fashion of obsolete hand fans
Voila, a Hong Kong based jewelry watch brand has premiered its “Oriental Breeze” collection at the Soiree Orientale at Baselworld. The brand that uses Swiss quartz movements has presented a delicate work of wrist watches depicting the cultural relics of the Orient. It takes inspiration from the creator’s numerous travels within Asia.
The beautiful collection is a tribute to the hand fan which was once a useful ornament adorned by the royals. Four Asian themed collections are to be introduced each one at its appropriate season. The collection premieres with ‘Cherry Blossom’the spring collection which takes its inspiration from travels to the land of the rising sun, Japan. This is to be followed by ‘Dancing Peacock’, a summer collection inspired from the wildlife in India. Ultimately the autumn – winter collections ‘Wild Orchid’ & ‘Golden Dragon’ are inspired from travels to the land of smiles, Thailand and China respectively and are scheduled to be released in fall 2009. Fitted with a hand woven genuine Shantou silk strap and culturally inspired hand enamel painted dial, the Oriental Breeze brings along with it a breath of fresh air. Each creative hand piece will cost you 890 euros.
