Shop The Store: Marie France Van Damme

After decades in the mass-market retail fashion industry, Montreal-born, Hong Kong–based designer Marie France Van Damme launched her own collection of high-end resort wear for women in 2011.

A mostly neutral palette of black, white, metallics, and animal prints comprise the line, the basis of which are well-cut cover-ups that can be easily thrown over a swim- suit during the day and then dressed up for evening with a belt. Other standouts include flowing sequin skirts and classic one-piece bathing suits, as well as handbags and scarves. All pieces in the collection are designed with resort living in mind but are great staples to incorporate with urban wardrobes as well.

The pieces are available at various boutiques across the world, as well as her newly opened Hong Kong flagship.

SLEEVELESS SHIRT

This lightweight piece works as a tank or a dress and is available in black, white, and peony (shown). $450

BUSTIER ONE-PIECE

More than a bathing suit, this slimming silhouette doubles as a strapless top under shorts or a skirt and is available in a range of animal prints. $309

PYTHON CLUTCH

This oversize python-textured leather clutch is a stylish upgrade to the typical beach bag. $550

 

NEHRU CAFTAN

This sheer dress allows for maxi- mum coverage but without bulk. Shown here in Batik Bronze, it is also available in eight other prints. $595

FOLD-OVER CLUTCH TOTE

During the day, it's a tote large enough to hold books and magazines; fold it over at night and it becomes a clutch. $550

CARRY ALL

Easy to pack and easy to carry, this cotton canvas bag comes in eye-catching metallic silver. $229
