It will have plenty of distinctive features which create an exclusive environment boasting warmth nd luxury. The combination of natural materials and textures embody the essence of Anne's love of modernity and nature. “The concept behind the shop is simple; to experience a little bit of the French lifestyle” says designer Anne Fontaine.

The Tyson's Galleria store will also unveil an exclusive, new furniture design concept in the US which highlights the designers hand bag and accessory collection. Square accessory islands appear to float around the space showcasing everything from belts to cufflinks and jewellery while contemporary wall fixtures and displays encourage customers to discover the product.

“I am so happy to be opening in the DC area. Washington is blooming with energy; its political & international presence is like no other. We are thrilled with the location and eager to introduce the brand to one of the country's most important markets. With Tyson's Galleria being a name that is synonymous with luxury fashion in the DC/Virginia market, it seemed like a natural fit” says Fontaine who has plans to further expand in Asia this year bringing her total to 73 privately owned shops.
