Façonnable Cruise 2013
The Elegant Yachtsman. Technical Chic. Riviera Icons.
An update take on a traditional Façonnable sailing theme was the starting point for the Cruise Collection. Fresh and focused, this chic sportswear collection presents technical details while meeting the elegance of a traditional week end wardrobe. Authentic nautical gears mix with Yacht Club classics and perfectly portrait the life in the Riviera, on and off the boat. Practical, fun and modern, this collection of iconic Façonnable pieces is designed for today.
For men, there are slim blazers with anchor-engraved buttons, trim nylon outerwear as well as pops of pink and orange delivered through lightweight knits and tailored chinos.
Women are at once at ease and pretty in graphic knits, including a boat neck cable sweater, skinny, cropped chinos and feminine skirt, and a sensational cream pea coat, modern in its couture-inspired shape. Flirty polka dots give graphic appeal to a silk dress while a tailored blazer completes the collection with just the right amount of sartorial authenticity.
Delve deeper into the collection and you’ll discover the kind of special details for which Façonnable is known: zigzag selvedge that recalls the stitching on sails, contrast trim in micro prints, like boats or sails, and engraved buttons. Fabrics combine cottons and silks with nylon and glazed finishes for a modern, approachable hand.
