"It all began in the south of France, in a small tailor’s shop on the "rue de Paradis, Nice”.
In 1950, with the French Riviera as his backdrop, Jean Goldberg created a family business based upon the principles of craftsmanship and passion of quality. From this origin the FAÇONNABLE brand was born, its name coming from the verb "Façonner”, a French word meaning "to fashion”.
Jean Goldberg acquired his reputation on the Riviera thanks to his exceptional talent which quickly attracted, not only the fortunate visitors of this international paradise, but also actors in search of evening wear during the International Film Festival in Cannes. His son Albert worked beside him and learned the inestimable know-how deserving of a great Master Tailor.
After visting New York during the 1960', Albert Goldberg became eager to invent his own vision of menswear. The Sportswear Chic was born. It was at that time that Albert Goldberg took over his father business and launched his first full line collection. Since then, the colors of the Riviera, sumptuous fabrics and timeless elegance influence each FAÇONNABLE collection.
Albert Goldberg developed FAÇONNABLE by establishing boutiques in keys cities across France, Belgium and Portugal. At the same time, the strong appeal of the brand to International wholesalers lead to the rapid expansion of the brand, now available in more than 500 retail outlets worldwide.
The acquisition of FAÇONNABLE by M1 group, a diverse holding investment organization, marks the beginning of a new era for the brand.
M1’s long term vision is to increase brand equity through building upon FAÇONNABLE’s formidable heritage and outstanding craftsmanship.
More than ever, FAÇONNABLE takes the greatest of care in the selection of its raw materials and the manufacturing of its collections.
Authenticity, instinct and talent, the values at the heart of FAÇONNABLE, continue to express the signature of "modern elegance”." ~Faconnable web
