Faconnable, a french retailer known historically for its menswear collection, recently put out photos for its Autumn/Winter 2012 womenswear items. After looking at the few pics from the collection, the first thought that came into my head was, someone at Gap and Banana Republic should be taking notes. While never known for high-end fashion, the designers there always created more than serviceable looks. I’m sure Faconnable, is aiming at higher price-points, but for what it is and who they are targeting (modern/contemporary), this is spot-on. See photos:
