Funktional has definitely parachuted its way to being our staple brand here at Sir & Madame. Although this is only our third season carrying this LA based brand, it is one that I look forward to receiving. This season Funktional does not disappoint; with bold patterns and graphics that adorn perfectly tailored blouses, pants, and skirts that will surely spice up anyone's Fall wardrobe. These items are perfect for day and night wear as well, making them ideal for us working women who like to hit up a happy hour directly after a long work day. A quick accessory change will transition this look from day to night, try a statement necklace like the Vintage Revival Robyn or Gisele necklace we featured. Worn together or separately a Funcktional item is definitely needed in your closest this Fall, check out out online showroom to find the perfect piece for you or stop in store, we'll be here!
One of the fairly newer brands here at Sir & Madame, Funktional definitely brings a big punch to the store. Funktional's choice of fabric and classically designed silhouettes are perfect for our customers and store's motto of "classic with a twist." Their summer collection is a great mix of soft tones and light jeans fabrics making it an easy pick for those hot Chicago summer nights. The design aspect of the pieces are wonderful as well, each piece fits designed with a woman's shape in mind unlike many brands that have that generic boxy fit. My favorite piece from the collection is definitely the Stripe Wrap Skirt it is such an easy piece that pairs wonderfully with any top; we paired it above with the Funktional "Blue Wash" shirt. Check out our online showroom for detailed images of your favorites from the Funktional Summer 12' collection as well as in store 938 N. Damen Ave.
