Anne Thomas is a French shoe and jewellery brand based in Lyon. In 2005, she participated at the ‘week of young designers’ competition with her jewellery, which was organised by the Le Printemps department store in Lyon. Winning the competition permitted her to benefit from a corner for the end of the year celebrations’ period. Thanks to the sales made during this event, she participated at a first professional trade show at Maison & Objet and the adventure really began.

After a couple of years, she felt a need to evolve and change material. In 2010, she enrolled at a contemporary jewellery school in Florence, Italy, which permitted her to introduce a new jewellery collection of art deco and geometry inspired trends, which consisted of hand-applied colourful velvet on fine gold plated brass. This new line was the first milestone of the Anne Thomas’s brand and it permitted her to be introduced to multi brand stores and female press. This collection also let her start living plainly off her passion. In 2013, with his friend Stéphane, with whom Anne shares life, they decided to experiment a new accessory sector – shoes! A lover of flats, it seemed natural for Anne & Stéphane to create a line of masculine feminine classics, inspired by the British style and revisited with the Parisian twist. The success came instantly. The first collection met their French public, and even more so the other countries, where the French design, the quality of the materials and fabrication are particularly sought after, such as the United States and Asia.

Today the range has stretched out to pumps and boots with small & medium heels. Their idea being to create a global selection of chic & contemporary shoes for day and night. Always being very comfortable.

The brand works with some of the best Italian tanneries, products are handmade in two family size factories in Portugal. The year 2017 marks a big turn with the opening of their first boutique in Paris , around «Le carreau du temple, Le Marais» where they will be proposing a large range of their creations, as well as a small selection of international designers.

We just received our first ever selection of Anne Thomas shoes to Beam and here are the two styles we have in store: Williamsburg and Cambridge Lo.
