Façonnable: Le Savoir-Faire

The 2016 Façonnable fall-winter collection designed for men and women travels from the stylish campuses of Ivy League schools to the chic slopes of the Alps.

Along the way they stop off in rugged English lodges and sleek metropolises, picking up inspiration for an impressive line-up designed to meet the sartorial needs of the modern consumer.

Blue Label pulls from four main inspirations: Metropolitan, Campus, Lodge and Megève. Each one offers a unique blend of function and fashion with an emphasis on outerwear.

From there, you’ll find Atelier, refined collections of high quality clothing. Accessories, Jeans and Azur round out the men’s offering.

Steeped in the Cote D’Azur tradition and crafted for discriminating tastes, the fall/winter collection is a master class in timeless style reformulated for today.

Metropolitan: Sleek outerwear for urbane tastes

Designed for the cosmopolitan man on the go, Metropolitan offers smart coverage for the stylish consumer. City landscapes, streamlined silhouettes and dark colors, like charcoal and chocolate, inform this sporty grouping of modern outerwear. Raincoats, parkas and field jackets are given functional aspect thanks to standout details, like transparent, waterproof membrane technology or lightweight quilted linings.

Lodge: Inviting separates that bring comfort and class to weekend wear

Lodge, part of Façonnable’s Blue Label, includes a rich array of hearty, comfortable pieces, like washed cotton jackets, heavy wool shirt/jackets and four-pocket waxed jackets. Colors like loden, army green and rust round out the country-ready collection. Women will also discover a similar outdoorsy bent with plenty of feminine details. Riding pants are lean and paired with an impossibly soft leather coat.

Campus: College staples revisited for the elegant graduate

Collegiate staples. Preppy evergreens. Trad style. Welcome to the youthful world of Campus, part of Façonnable’s Blue Label. In the men’s collection, there are double-faced fabrics in various patterns, reversible down jackets, blazers with contrast nylon sleeves and waxed cotton blousons. The women’s collection, anchored in colors like navy, burgundy and purple, also features preppy classics reformulated for today. Key pieces include a reengineered caban in a contemporary oval shape, a boiled wool pea coat, a double-faced wool duffle with a plaid inset and plenty of sporty separates in traditional pinstripes, navy, burgundy or purple.

Megève: Après ski never felt or looked so good

Part of Blue Label, Megève’s men’s line is chock full of natural colors, wool blends and hefty tweeds. From felted shirts to Shetland wool jackets, Megève epitomizes the spirit of après ski. Women can cuddle up in chunky cable knit sweaters, tailored puffers coats with oversized hoods and luxurious sweater jackets all done in a warm palette of ivory and camel with the occasional pop of red.

Atelier: Elite collections for men of discriminating taste

Defined by the utmost production values, Grey Label is an exquisite representation of classically designed clothes for the contemporary man. Atelier is produced entirely in Europe and uses precious fabrics, like silk and wool blends. There’s a sartorial unlike any other sense that encompasses outerwear, clothing and knits.

Azur: Handsome beach wear for year-round holidays

Azur is Façonnable’s thoughtful collection of well-made, well-designed swim and beachwear. Blending Façonnable’s established trademarks----tailoring, superior fabrications----with first-rate swim technology, Azur guarantee that a garment will not only look good, but last. The use of silicon, washed enzymes and special finishes give the trunks and tees a soft feel with a long shelf life.

Accessories: The crowning touch to any outfit

Each season, Façonnable builds upon its burgeoning accessories collection for men and women. For fall 2016, there’s an enticing array of bags, shoes, hats, gloves and belts designed to complement each of Façonnable’s lines. For example, sporty baseball caps with embroidered crests go perfectly with Campus. While black leather duffle bags fit in with Metropolitan. Rope belts, boiled wool gloves and leather hiking boots round out the men’s offering. Women can enjoy streamlined clutches with striking closures, slouchy hobo bags and skinny belts outfitted with buckles that are similar to those one bags. Burnished leather riding boots and knit caps complete the head-to-toe look.
