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.

We are thrilled with the location and eager to introduce the brand to one of the country's most important markets.
