Known for a strong focus on classic French tailoring, Façonnable has long been one of the most celebrated international brands in the world. Since 1950 the company, founded in Nice, France has been making apparel and accessories for men and women with an emphasis on refined, casual elegance. Making their debut in the Northwest, Faconnable recently opened a brand new store in Bellevue square. To coincide with the launch, Spring '13 menswear trends by the company were highlighted this morning on New Day Northwest. Key items included tailored denim, gingham and paisley, double breasted jackets in a shorter silhouette and brightly colored suede drivers. Watch the New Day Northwest segment below:
The spring collection is inspired by St. Tropez and the Mediterranean lifestyle that goes along with it. Revisiting the summer suit as separates, pairing a washed linen jacket with colored trousers, and playing with texture and print including suede and paisley are all elements found within the spring collection.
A grand opening celebration for the Bellevue store is taking place tonight from 6-8pm. As part of the grand opening, Faconnable is donating 15% of all sales now through March 24th to The Bellevue Youth Theatre Foundation, a local non-profit dedicated to developing youth and community through increased accessibility to performing arts.
