French Connection combines country life & urban sleekness
Sep '13
For AW 13, French Connection womenswear combines the vintage aristocratic idea of country life with the urban sleekness of the modern city.

The collection nods to the sixties using classic shapes and silhouettes. Shades of black and white underpin the range, leaving the addition of strong graphic prints and sequin pieces to decorate the collection’s stand-out items.

The transition from summer to autumn sees strong animal motifs influence the collection alongside the pace-setter, horse racing. Horse and fox figures appear in prints and knit sweaters, while embellished sweats are a kitsch nod to the horsey set.

In addition to the black and white trend throughout, strong graphic prints are also key. Subtle sixties prints can be seen in the form of cute shift dresses through to chic textured tops. Graphic checks offer easy daywear pieces to underpin the classic neutral colours and tailoring. Eveningwear is kept clean and minimal with midnight black taking centre stage.

Colourful coats are key to the collection, nodding to the candy coated trend seen on the runway. The bouclé coat is key to the AW13 range with its clean and minimal design aesthetic. A strong colour palette of bold colours runs throughout the collection with a striking electric blue, shaded purple and sulphur on dresses and separates. Alternatively, deep plum and berry colours provide a more accessible option for the less brave.

An emphasis on easy daywear pieces ranging from luxurious fur-lined parkas paired with our new premium denim offering sees a new direction in daytime dressing. Understated styling brings a more relaxed, simple and effortless appearance to any modern woman’s wardrobe ranging from feminine tops through to easy sweatshirts. Think Parisian chic dressing for winter 2013.
