Annabelle was born in August of 1967. It was one of the most dazzlingly colourful summers in history, with all eyes on the cosmopolitan city of Montréal, who was playing host to the World’s Fair.
The Fair was a kaleidoscope of cultural diversity, and a vibrant, visionary celebration of humanity.
A sense explosive human potential was spreading like wildfire from the hippie love-ins of San Francisco to the ivory towers of academia in Paris.
As a child of that era, Annabelle captured both its vibrant colour and its message of empowerment with the notion of Colour Power. We built a reputation for its extraordinary variety of bold shades and nuanced hues, created to inspire women to freely experiment and express their own powerful and colourful sense of personal style.
