French Connection plays with textures & checks this summer

Mar '14
To start the Spring Summer season, French Connection plays with textures through traditional herringbone and Prince of Wales check while grindle yarns lend a thrifty vintage effect to shirting.
 
Floral prints feature throughout the collection, maintaining the collection’s relaxed and casual feel. Cutting and sewing classic fabrics together adds innovation and detail to the modern man’s wardrobe. French Connection polos get an upgrade with new badges and appliqués in pure cotton and stretch fabrics.  
 
Casual wear gets a boost this season with the all-new “F” that appears on shirts and tshirts, and promises to be a recurring theme for the coming seasons as well. Space-inspired motifs and full-graphic photo prints dominate the men’s range. The season’s staple, shorts come in a range of choices—as printed and reversible, in denim and sweats. 
 
The Spring Summer season sees a refreshing new colour palette emerge in soft sorbet shades. Zest green and peach melba top the colour leader board and are offered in easy silk separates as well as drop waist dresses.
 
A sprinkling of sequins is also seen in this package with a subtle animal print adorning the stand-out dress of the season as well as tutti frutti embellishment transforming classic summer staples. Dresses see subtle lace detailing and add a feminine twist to this modern collection. 
 
Pastel checks bring a prim, preppy and more grown up aesthetic to the range which take a back seat to the more bold and striking palm tree printed matching suit, a key look for those more brave. For eveningwear sizes and proportions have been played with. Modern block dresses are offered in midnight black and blush pink. 
 
The international “It” accessory of the year—bucket bags—are key highlights of the French Connection accessories collection, along with the new line of pure leather bags. The popular solid and laser-cut styles make an appearance on classic totes and work bags. Box clutches in neons and varied textures matching French Connection party pieces make an appearance as well.
