Façonnable x Nordstrom

                 The other day my sister and I a walk downtown and everything looked so much brighter. We looked better around us and there they were, Christmas lights. There were Christmas lights everywhere. Christmas. Christmas is just round the corner and what does always come with Christmas? Gifts, of course. Here I am now wearing my new Façonnable vest and sweater, one of my favorite pair of jeans and my brogue boots and doing my Christmas gift list. This year’s list is almost ready. Now I have to go shopping. Well, I wish I could go, but there is no time, so I have to choose an alternative, Nordstrom online.

       

I don’t know about you but shopping for the men of my life, can be difficult. They are so important to me and different, although they all have something in common, their spin on classic style. A style born in details. As I am searching in Nordstrom something for them I cannot ignore Façonnable. Façonnable in Nordstrom has a great variety of casual shirts, jeans, outerwear, pants, sweaters and vests that you cannot ignore.
Façonnable started taking the form that has today in the late 60’s by Mr. A. Goldberg, He first created a small men’s collection with colorful designs, suptuous fabrics and timeless elegance. He expanded his business the next three decades through authenticity, instinct and talent. In 1988, Façonnable and Nordstrom met. Beginning in the early 1990’s Façonnable expanded in U.S. via Nordstrom. In 2000 Nordstrom purchased Façonnable SAS and founder Mr. A. Goldberg retired. In summer 2007 M1 Group engaged in a number of diverse activities, purchased Façonnable and helped the brand expand even more. Today, the brand has over 500 retail customers worldwide and products include high quality men’s and women’s apparel and accessories.

Woodwear Sunglasses

image

                I had the craziest dream last night about a boy who has fallen into a rabbit hole and finds his love into a pair of sunglasses, but the sunglasses fall for the Red Queen and he kills himself. (Black Swan, Alice in Wonderland)
It’s Sunday morning and I wanted to get dressed for a walk in sunny Athens. As I was putting my outfit together, I searched out for the perfect accessories and a wooden case reminded me my dream. It reminded me those sunglasses. Immediately, I knew the perfect accessory for my outfit, my new pair of wooden sunglasses made by Woodwear. I was right, they were perfect, simple yet outstanding. I went to the beach to relax. At some point I put the sunglasses next to me and they were like they belonged there, so natural. Some people even asked me where I got them.
I am by the beach and wearing my sunglasses, while I am writing and I decided to write about Woodwear. Woodwear sunglasses are made out of bamboo like small pieces of art. They are like a piece of nature, something between a beach and a forest. Personally, they help me travel into wild nature while I am in the middle of the city. This feeling comes because Woodwear is based in Hermosa Beach, California where the creators can surf and enjoy a great life by the sea. Their sunglasses are inspired by California Beach culture and the nature around it.

Daniel Cremieux - Luxury French Tailored Preppy

image

                  Somewhere between “You can never be overdressed or overeducated” of Oscar Wilde and “Simplicity is the keynote of all true elegance” of Gabriel Coco Chanel is the deepest root of preppy style. Preppy is not just a style, it is a way of life. Being preppy means to be polite, to have a great posture, to socialize, to play a preppy sport like horse riding, to take good care of yourself and of course to pay attention to school. School is important as it is the birthplace of preppy style in clothing. Being simple, fresh and clean are the key rules to preppy clothing, while minimal accessories and a natural still sport and classic hairstyle are the finishing touches for this style.

        

Preppy style though evolved and from a school attire went to everyone who could support it. Naturally, the need for preppy clothing led to the creation of many brands, such as Cremieux.

Cremieux was first launched in 1976 in St.Tropez by Daniel Cremieux. This boutique was in the beginning a place of imported goods like shirts, sweaters and ties from Britain. In Cremieux boutique you would find vivid and bright hues in the collection and it was one of the first boutiques at that time when France was dominated by dark colors in fashion. Vivid colored clothes were accompanied by European source apparel and bright accessories. Thus, the Cremieux brand was born.

        

Cremieux is a family business grounded on passion, details and uncompromising quality. Through years Cremieux built a global business with like-minded distributers and partners that share the same vision. In 2003 Stephan Cremieux took over the family business and brought a new modern still vintage aesthetic for their international consumer and this was the key to their success, answering the evolving needs of the their clients.

In 2009, Cremieux got the logo “Cremieux, 38” in memory of its founder (birth date of Daniel Cremieux) and his quote “there is no future without the past”.

        

Cremieux is still evolving its style but always embodies the youthful still sophisticated Saint- Tropez spirit. It is for sure a brand worthy to check out if you like preppy style, although I think that if you are into preppy style you already know this company and its sense.
