Marie France Van Damme, the Hong Kong-based designer known for her globally influenced line of luxury resort, ready-to-wear, and swim announced the reopening of a new store in Miami at Bal Harbour Shops.
The luxury resort wear designer initially opened her first Florida store at Bal Harbour Shops in January 2018 as a temporary pop-up shop, which operated through July 2019. The brand has entered into a long-term lease agreement with Bal Harbour Shops, and reopened in its new unit in March 2020. Marie France Van Damme currently has eleven stores including a flagship in Hong Kong.
Located on the second floor of the Bal Harbour Shops, the new 800-square foot store will continue to offer Marie France Van Damme’s exclusive collections of ‘Dolce Vita’ essentials including day dresses and evening wear, resort wear, bathing suits, and caftans, so as to provide the best of both worlds: luxe day resort wear and chic evening looks.
In keeping with Marie France Van Damme’s signature aesthetic, which blends subtle Asian influences and elegant simplicity, the boutique will feature teak wood, bronze panels, and embossed crocodile leathers with textiles and finishes that can be found in her home as well as her flagship in Hong Kong.
Marie France Van Damme’s sophisticated luxury resort wear and ready to wear lines are made for Florida and the contemporary Miami beach lifestyle.
“Miami is a vibrant fashion capital. Like me, our customer travels around the world, and she needs to find things that will look beautiful during the day as well as at night; from the beach to a cocktail or dinner in the evening,” says Marie France Van Damme.
