Dates of existence



Façonnable was founded in Nice, France by tailor Jean Goldberg in 1950. He retired in 1961 and the business was taken over by his son Albert Goldberg who renamed the company 'Façonnable', based on the word 'façonner' meaning 'to shape'. He also shifted the business into men's ready-to-wear.

They opened stores across the French Riviera and in the 1970s began collaborating with American brands such as Sebago, Alden and Van's in the 1970s. They opened their first store in the United States in New York in 1993 and in 2001 were bought by Nordstrom, the US retailer. Façonnable was acquired by the Lebanon-based company M1 Group in 2007.
