Façonnable + Jean Cocteau

Façonnable Jean Cocteau

For more than a decade, Jean Cocteau created elaborate frescoes for the Villa Santo Sospir, Francine Weisweiller’s retreat on the French Riviera. As the story goes, the artist came for dinner one evening and left 13 years later, having used the walls, originally white, as a canvas. Around the same time, in nearby Nice, the brand Façonnable was founded by a master tailor on the Rue Paradis. Its signature shirts and tailored jackets—as well as this tote and matching espadrilles—provide a similarly irresistible backdrop for Cocteau’s work in a limited-edition collaboration with the Jean Cocteau Committee that will be available this spring.
