Façonnable Winter line highlights opulent colours & classic silhouettes

Oct '08
Façonnable, the well-loved fashion brand inspired by the French Riviera, brings its inspiring Winter 2008 Collection to the UAE.

The collection offers a variety of styles that are inspired by tradition, but enriched by contemporary style. A Faconnable shirt, tie or jacket will remain fashionable year after year. This winter the main colours of the collection are shades of beige, burgundy, brown, orange and violet. Cashmere, leather and wool feature strongly throughout the men's, women's and children's wear collections to create a relaxed yet elegant silhouette.

Façonnable is a high-end French retailer specialising in tailored men's and women's clothing using 100% Italian fabrics and tailoring techniques. The company started as a small custom tailor shop which opened in 1950 on Rue Paradis in Nice, France. By 1958 the shop was making custom tuxedos for Hollywood stars that visited the Cote d'Azur for the annual Cannes Film Festival. In 1961, the shop was named 'Façonnable', a variation of the word 'Façonner', which means 'to create'. The company expanded and in 1973 opened its first boutiques in Monte Carlo, Cannes, Saint-Tropez, Lyon, and Marseilles.

Façonnable's offerings have been tailored distinctively and detailed with all the classic refinements. However, its luxurious feel is what sets it in a league of its own. The collection is highly sophisticated and captures the true essence of a free-spirit by combining classic with the modern. The company has always strived for excellence and shown unwavering commitment to bring the best of fashion to its international markets. Just one look at the latest collection is enough to persuade you of its complete brilliance which combines style and luxury.

The latest Façonnable collection shows a lot of attitude as colours become vivid. More than ever, the new collection reminds us of the pleasures of dressing and celebrates natural materials used in the most inventive and creative manner. The UAE is a special market for Faconnable, thus it offers its customers the total brand experience this season.

The Winter 2008 collection is now available at Faconnable Boutique at the Mall of the Emirates and all Rodeo Drive boutiques in Dubai and Abu Dhabi.
