The Elegant Yachtsman. Technical Chic. Riviera Icons An update take on a traditional Façonnable sailing theme was the starting point for the Cruise Collection. Authentic nautical gears mix with Yacht Club classics and perfectly portrait the life in the Riviera, on and off the boat. It's a practical, fun and modern collection.
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.
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.
Founded in the 1950s by Jean Goldberg, Faconnable has long been one of the most celebrated international menswear brands worldwide thanks to its refined collections of classic French tailoring and resort wear. Acquired by M1 Group in 2007, Façonnable is enjoying a new era. By championing its chic French Cote D’Azur origins and recommitting itself to quality craftsmanship, Faconnable has begun to reap the rewards of the new strategy. “This is a very exciting moment for Façonnable,” says CEO Moustapha El Solh. “We’ve worked hard to create collections that are fresh, beautifully executed and true to the brand’s rich heritage. People are really responding to them.”
