Every year, the USA celebrate their National Day (Independence Day, July 4) and so do the French a few days later with Bastille Day (July 14). Which celebration - other than the D Day celebration – could symbolize better the Franco-American friendship? Absolutely none!
The Marquis de Lafayette and George Washington
That’s why at ANNE TOURAINE Paris™, we are very proud of the France-Amérique scarf which each year, in July, is the hero of our collection. It is way more than a stylish scarf: it is an ode to the indestructible and historical links between France and the USA.
As we all know, the French alliance was decisive for the cause of American independence. And American independence was decisive for the future of France. French aid (money, warships, and volunteers) proved vital in the victory of the Americans seeking independence from Britain. In turn, the American Revolution influenced deeply France. Famous historical characters such as Thomas Jefferson and Benjamin Franklin sympathized with the Enlightenment ideas and the French revolution - at least before it became violent and radical.
If, like us, you love equally France and the USA - which by the way share the same flag colors – it’s time to celebrate with classiness both the 4th of July and Bastille Day.
Surprise your friends! Rather than wearing a blue, white and red brooch or earrings, opt for a refine accessory: the ANNE TOURAINE Paris™ France-Amérique scarf, which you can wear all year round, is a lovely accessory you will never get tired of. It comes into four different shades: cloudy white, parchment beige (old print effect), storm blue and pewter grey.
Its two different sizes (36x36” / 90x90cm and 27x27” / 70x70cm) allow many different style wears.
Whatever your favorite color or size is you will shine on these very special days. Time to express your love for the USA and for France! Happy 4th of July, Bonne fête de la Bastille and "Que la fête commence" (let the party begin)!
