anne fontaine was born in 1971 to a brazilian mother and a franco- german father in rio de janeiro. passionate about ecology, she left home at the age of 17 to live with an indigenous tribe for six months in the amazon forest located in the north-east of brazil. while there, she received the secrets of nature that have been passed down from generation to generation.
1971年，anne fontaine(安纺谭)出生于里约热内卢，母亲有着巴西血统，父亲是法德裔。anne fontaine女士从小就对大自然充满着好奇和热情，17岁那年便离开家乡，在巴西东北部的亚马逊森林与一个土著部落一起度过了6个月。在那里，她领会到了大自然代代相传的诸多奥秘。
it was at this point that her true passion for the environment was born.
at the age of 20, she moved to france in the footsteps of her father’s origins, while continuing her environmental work by devoting herself to the defense of whales.
her destiny is shattered by an encounter with her future husband ari, whose family owned a renowned shirt making business. one day he showed anne his grandmother’s chest overflowing with white shirts.
instinctive in nature with a love for fashion, she is immediately inspired and takes the daring challenge to create a universe around the white shirt. as a result, they both decided to take over the family business. the maison anne fontaine was born.
the dna of the maison anne fontaine is therefore obvious - the chemise blanche, around which and over the years, anne fontaine will develop a strong creative universe and a complete collection with identifiable style that has been renewed each season for more than twenty years.
