Sandy delayed-the French contemporary label Façonnable previewed their Pre-Fall (late summer delivery) Spring 2013 collections for men and women...together.

People wear the same clothes year-round anyway---so it was nice to see how the apparel all shared the same sophisticated tailored approach---clean/chic/versatile---with signature prints and colors---reinterpreted classics all-whether in autumnal tones or brighter shades for the warmer weather.

Pre-Fall 2013 finds the contemporary menswear/womenswear (and the wearers) taking a stroll above deck on a rather posh,  early 20th century cruise liner- dressed in easy elegant attire of relaxed shipboard tailored pieces, in timeless maritime style that also works effortlessly on terra firma.

Bonus-the separates are easily mix-matchable.

Façonnable is synonymous with polo and L/S button down shirts in an assortment of colors ---that feature contrast collars and hem fabrics.
