In a mysterious corner in the depths of West London lies an artistic appreciation for all creative things: in the backlit depths of Circus, Manuel Facchini’s AW15 collection rose from the ashes. The mysterious luring of the venue set the stage for what was going to a bewitching debut performance.
In 2006 Facchini became the creative director of label Byblos. Now, standing on his own, he yearns to express his distance from the orthodox; showcasing how contrasting focal points of creative cultivation merge harmoniously.
Expressing his desires to break free from convention, this season Manuel stirs us into a hypnotic haze. Synergising monochromatic geometric prints and clean-lined silhouettes, Facchini creates an entrancing vision for the beholder. Slimline tailoring combines with casual attire to create a collection that is both cutting edge and contemporary chic.
The debut range is certainly no ordinary showcase. Facchini embarks on an encompassing journey, one that is certain to bring him further recognition and success in the future. Facchini is known for his combination of sports and rock aesthetics and has once again proven to the fash-pack that he can not only deliver, but surprise.
