ananas bananas is above all two friends, two accomplices, and has been for 20 years. Anne and Marie-Claude have always shared common tastes and similar values. A tightly knit duo that always places friendship above all else.
Anne Lespérance is the owner of the company “Belle et rebelle inc.” for over 14 years. Over the years, she has worked with more than a hundred Quebec designers and enjoys a solid reputation in the fashion world in Quebec.
Marie-Claude Châtillon has worked for 20 years in the field of major cultural events as an operations manager. His experience has allowed him to develop knowledge in all areas of production. She also studied tourism and worked as a guide.
The Ananas & Bananas summer collection combines comfort, style and affordability. Designed under the sun of Montreal or an Asian beach, the clothes are transportable and dry quickly.
You can find as many "basics" as colorful prints. Don't know the line? Start with a New Mexico tank top and Bombay pants, you'll love it!
Chaque année, nos deux amies se rendent en Asie auprès de leurs fournisseurs principalement en Thaïlande et en Inde. De solides relations d’affaires se sont créées au fil des ans. Depuis 10 ans, elles travaillent avec les mêmes fournisseurs. Fait intéressant : ce sont des hommes d’âge mûrs qui font leurs vêtements, et ce, dans de petits ateliers.
Anne cultive sa passion pour l’Asie depuis ses 19 ans ce qui lui a permis de créer des liens d'amitié inébranlables. Quant à elle, les différents voyages de Marie-Claude au fil des ans lui ont permis de s’adapter aisément à différents milieux et cultures. L’hiver au Québec, vous les verrez rêvasser à coup sûr en attendant le prochain départ.
