The Elements store opening follows the companies very first store in Hong Kong’s International Finance Centre (IFC) mall in September 2013.

Globally, it’s the seventh boutique to bow for the Canada-born designer, who relocated to Hong Kong some 30 years ago to set up a global womenswear manufacture firm.

Today, the designer has stores in Bangkok, London, Singapore and two more in Thailand’s Phuket.

Marie France Van Damme launched her eponymous resort brand in Summer 2011. The brand, known for its wear anywhere appeal and resort-inspired flare, is today stocked across 100 points of sale worldwide, including department store majors Harrod’s, Saks Fifth Avenue and Le Bon Marché in Paris.
