How do you take frivolity and make it into rigidity?  Not that frivolity is always a bad thing but it does have the tendency to be 'trendy' and 'of the moment'.  Not that that's a bad thing either.  We are all drawn to trends in some small or large capacities, however I feel it's always a stronger and more lasting impact when the presentation of said trends come at you in a desirably solid fashion (no pun intended).Her Charted Course:  Façonnable Women's Cruise Collection 2014Her Charted Course:  Façonnable Women's Cruise Collection 2014
Her Charted Course:  Façonnable Women's Cruise Collection 2014Her Charted Course:  Façonnable Women's Cruise Collection 2014I've always said that the approach to menswear is more solid than womenswear.  The tailoring, handwork and attention to shaping mathematic is only often seen is higher fashioned womenswear such as black labels and couture.  The classically adopted slow-evolving shapes of menswear allow it to have a timeless air.  For this reason, whenever I see a womenswear collection that takes cues from the learned distinguished insight of menswear, I'm intrigued.  When I see that same collection also appeal to the desires and fascinations of women, I'm intrigued with a smile.  Her Charted Course:  Façonnable Women's Cruise Collection 2014Her Charted Course:  Façonnable Women's Cruise Collection 2014
