The set of six aviators, a marriage of Italian design and French allure, features a striking colorful Façonnable-stripe motif along the frames with matching tinted lenses.
The second celebration speaks directly to the polo season, in full swing at the city’s exclusive Polo Club Saint-Tropez, located in the picturesque village of Gassin.

Crafted from sturdy cotton pique, the trim short-sleeve polo features two tones of blue with a graphic sash motif across the body and will be available for both men and women.
Both the sunglasses and shirts are available for sale exclusively at the Façonnable Saint-Tropez boutique as well as select
