NICE, France — Façonnable is planning to celebrate the opening of its new boutique in Bellevue, Wash., today as it unveils the new course of the brand under artistic director Julian Neale.
Across from Lake Washington, the directly operated 3,500-square-foot unit, modeled after a new store concept, is located at upscale shopping center Bellevue Collection. The new store blueprint is fashioned after a house on the French Riviera, with striped awnings and facades, a sea-blue color palette and an outdoorsy feel. Shelves come in bleached oak, and wood planks embellish the ceiling.
