For Pre-fall 2013, the design team at French fashion house Façonnable created a very wearable and commercial menswear collection inspired by the clothes worn by the well-heeled passengers and gentlemanly crew of early twentieth century cruise liners.
The colour palette features bright navy, heather grey, teak, cerulean, cream, leaf green and amber, whereas patterns include maritime details and graphic stripes. Lightweight sportswear and softly tailored separates create an overall relaxed silhouette.
Garments include loosely cut and heavy-washed linen trousers, cardigan jackets, bib front shirts, softly brushed cotton chinos, shirt jackets in stretch cotton or featherweight suede, washed shirts, flannel trousers, draped raincoats with removable hoods, cropped double-face pea coats, and colour-block polo shirts with contrast collars, flag motifs and graphics from vintage cruise liner posters.
Footwear includes car shoes, derby shoes in soft toe capped suede and tailored sneakers inspired by deck shoes, whereas accessories include textured belts and classic Panama hats.
