Luxury Resort Wear Designer Marie France van Damme Unveils an Exclusive New Pet Capsule Collection

November 30, 2018 Lifestyle No Comments Email Email

Marie France Van Damme, the Hong Kong-based designer known for her globally-influenced line of luxury resort, swim, and ready-to-wear, has partnered with Jay Ahr (a.k.a designer Jonathan Riss) to launch a limited-edition pet capsule collection of chic leather leashes and dog collars: the small Boubou size set ($450 USD), and medium Momo set ($550).

Designed to seamlessly match Marie France Van Damme’s collections, the metallic leather pet collection is named after Marie France’s two rescue dogs, Boubou and Momo, and can be found exclusively at Marie France Van Damme’s boutiques as of December. Available in a metallic color palette of gold, black, bronze, and silver, to match the designer’s available collection of bags and clutches, Marie France created the pet accessory for the chic traveler and her canine companion, in celebration of the Year of The Dog. The material, a soft leather, is texturally rich and multi-layered, and incorporates Jay Ahr’s iconic braiding techniques and intricate leatherwork.

Marie France Van Damme plans to host a series of charity events, from Los Angeles to London, to launch the collection. A portion of the proceeds from the MFVD & Jay Ahr pet collection will be donated to help rescue animals.

This exclusive capsule collection is the latest addition to the Marie France Van Damme brand, which has rapidly expanded since its inception in 2011 to include an impressive range of ready-to-wear, resortwear, swimwear, sunglasses, perfume, and candles. The designer just opened her thirteenth  boutique at the Wynn Las Vegas and her first store in The Middle East at The Dubai Mall. She recently opened her eleventh boutique in Miami at Bal Harbour Shops and a store in Marrakech at La Mamounia in January 2018, a Los Angeles boutique in September 2017 at the Peninsula Beverly Hills, a boutique in Bangkok’s luxury shopping and entertainment complex Gaysorn Village in 2017, and her seventh store in December 2016 in Hong Kong’s prestigious Elements shopping mall, which is Marie France Van Damme’s second Hong Kong store. The company opened its very first store in Hong Kong’s acclaimed International Finance Centre (IFC) mall in September 2013. Five years later, Marie France Van Damme has twelve stores worldwide, proving that small curated stores are still very relevant. The company currently has 100 retail locations in some of the world’s most desirable shopping destinations.
