Inspired by her travels and her passion for old movies, the Swiss founder of MonPanama, Anne-Claude Toral, has been fascinated by Panama hats and handbags since her childhood.
As a small girl, she would create an imaginary world by dressing herself up in the flamboyant Panama hats and handbags she found in her grandmother’s chest. These childhood memories would have a profound influence on MonPanama’s creative development, while the names all pay homage to the glamorous movie actresses of a bygone age.
Now living in Bangkok with her husband and children, Anne-Claude also works as a retail consultant for luxury hotels in South-East Asia.
Welcome to MonPanama!
Meaning “my Panama hat” in French, the name MonPanama was born from the idea that everyone can create their MonPanama persona by matching their head size and face shape with their preferred style from the extensive MonPanama collection.
