NEW YORK, Sep 11, 2010 / FW/ — Staying true to the label’s DNA of bringing to life the magic of Cote d’Azur into life, Eric Wright, Artistic Director of Faconnable showcased spring shades of blue, green, yellow then mixed it with earthly and gray nuances.
Highlighting classic silhouettes that celebrated the 1930s and the 1940s, Wright, on his debut collection for Faconnable concentrated on bringing out the maximum softness of the garment.
And like the town of Cote d’Azur which gave life to the label, a town that holds within a cultural richness made of painters, writers and artists, the Faconnable spring 2010 collection enhanced the importance of light and colors.
It’s the classics at its peak, where ‘timeless’ is not just a word but a reality. Eric Wright emphasized the timeless qualities not just of the collection but also of Faconnable.
“There is nothing to change,” said Wright what his strategy will be in terms of design to introduce Faconnable to Gen Y and the Millennials. “I just came from our store in the West Coast and I saw these young people who just love the clothes exactly the way they are.”
With Faconnable, classics are the new classics; hence Wright, whose varied career include stints at Karl Lagerfeld, Chloe, Fendi, Trussardi and most recently Roberto Cavalli, truly understands that sometimes, there really is nothing to change.
Rather, things just need to be enhanced; hence, Wright’s decision to focus on the strengths of Faconnable such as the creativity, quality and craftsmanship.
