The Façonnable Collection for Spring-Summer 2013
Spring Forward - Façonnable Injects Chic Ease Into The New Season
Easy elegance. Rumpled sophistication. For Spring-Summer 2013, Façonnable is all about understated, modern masculinity and natural femininity — a couple that exudes quiet confidence and polished appeal.
Casablanca: Façonnable’s Sheltering Sky
Inspired by the wanderlust of the great explorers, Casablanca, Blue’s first starting point, delivers timeless pieces for today’s modern adventurers. Imagine the rich, exotic landscape of Bertolucci’s 1991 “The Sheltering Sky,” and you’ll begin to sense the spirited elegance of this collection. With a nod to bohemia, Casablanca offers a neutral palette with hints of sun-trenched colors and accents of vibrant tones. There are the barely-there creams, deep blues and warm ochres all cut into contemporary separates, including sleek suede blazers and fitted safari jackets. Technical fabrics mix effortlessly with linens, madras, tie-dye and washed silk blends while handcrafted details, like badges inspired by old world luggage tags, deliver a singular touch.
Women are equally relaxed yet never undone. The finest silk/cotton and silk/linen blends are cut into streamlined tunics and easy dresses — pieces that can easily accompany a woman from one adventure to another, whether in the city or a more exotic place. Garment-dyed separates, ethnic-inspired patterns and a standout printed Fair Isle technique round out the confident collection.
