NICE, France, Aug 27, 2012/ — Inspired by The Legionnaires, better known as the French Foreign Legion, the Faconnable Fall-Winter 2012-2013 collection draws elements from the military units’ uniforms resulting to dusty khakis, clean chinos, and streamlined silhouettes for the season.
Romantic and military references meet in a new kind of understated, elegance. Strong, confident, but far from ostentatious, the men’s features standout outerwear, including a cropped belted trench coat with leather shoulder patches, a perforated suede bomber, oversized army parachute parka and a double-zip lightweight nylon jacket.
For women, the lineup is sensual and functional. Exceptional outerwear features pieces like a funnel neck belted coat, a suede blazer and a round-shoulder belted trench. Important layering pieces like cropped slouchy sweaters, paper-thin button down shirts in ethnical prints and minimal skirts with contrast zips or trim round up perfectly this feminine yet far from ostentatious line.
Both men and women collections are obsolescence and designed for the ones who appreciate clean-lined and modern clothes, all cut from cool neutrals, like tobacco, stone and olive drab then accented with deep tones, such as chili red, sun bleached pink and gypsy blue. This collection is at once of the moment and timeless.
