Façonnable is to showcase its menswear collection for Fall / Winter 2011 at Italy’s Pitti Uomo.
At the Padiglione Centrale in Florence, the French label will present a collection based around three themes: metropolitan, lodge and campus. The idea is expressed as follows:
Designed for men and women who travel from the stylish campuses of Ivy League schools to the chic slopes of the Alps. With rugged English lodges along the way and stop-offs in sleek metropolises, the Fall-Winter collection is steeped in the Cote D’Azur tradition and crafted for discriminating tastes.
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, such as 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, including washed cotton jackets, heavy wool shirt/jackets and four-pocket waxed jackets. A palette of loden, army green and rust round out the country-ready collection.
Campus: College staples revisited for the elegant graduate
Double-faced fabrics in various patterns, reversible down jackets, blazers with contrast nylon sleeves and waxed cotton blousons.
Façonnable will also roll out the Atelier line made from the finest precious fabrics.
