& Other Stories just launched the summer accessory you didn’t know you needed

Beat the heat with the most unexpected but chic accessory for the summer. 

A British summer is as unpredictable as British politics. One minute we are in blistering heat melting faster than a 99 ice cream, and working out our closest route to open water; the next we are being drowned in torrential downpour and dealing with this constant state of humidity

Summer occasions can be just as sweat inducing. In your bid to be there on time you’re inevitably rushed and hence sweaty upon arrival (because no matter how long you have to get ready for something, once you have factored lounging on your bed in towel, there is never long enough). A warm spot on a wedding day might be idyllic for photos but for you in your silk dress it’s a little less idyllic

Enter: the humble fan. Once an item only reserved for your elderly aunt, the fan has become something of a fashion favourite – a chic way to cool yourself down or just another way to accessorise your summer outfit.

The high street has taken notice as & Other Stories have teamed up with Fern Fans – the brain child of industry insiders Daisy Hoppen and Amanda Borberg. Created in line with & Other Stories’ seasonal offering the wood and cotton fans span five designs featuring bright colours and floral colours. Hand painted by Borberg – a Copenhagen based textile-designer – these fans are about to be the coolest accessory to hit your handbag. 

The fan rules, as encouraged by Fern Fans
