French Connection launches S/S collection for women

Shimmer through decades of style into Spring with an eclectic collection taking inspiration from the romanticism of the 70's, casual sports layering of the 80's blended through draping jersey to touches of modernism, reminiscent of the early 90's.

The kitsch collection is structured by classic wardrobe staples giving the season a timeless feel.

Prints and detail evoke a dressing-up box of yesteryear, full of sugar sweet stripes, ditsy florals and delicate embellishment contrasted with over scaled abstract graphics in show stopping colours.

Embellishments are graphic interpretations of stripes and spots in mouth-watering colours mixed with futuristic holographics.

Dresses lead the way in an array of shapes and styles while laid-back tunics come in graphic prints or delicate florals. The versatile shirtdress features throughout the season - choose from relaxed soft cotton styles with blouson sleeves or washed satin empire line in sherbet lemon.

For a retro 50's feel, opt for the cream and navy bold stripe panelled prom dress. Towards the end of summer floaty dresses make a come back with tiered gypsy styles and long country checks.

Grown up tea party prints adorn smock tops and loose flowing styles and shirts get tied up with large bows at the collar. Silver piping on loose t-shirts continue the high shine trend from last season with an array of sherbet coloured stripes on oversized boyfriend vests and Neapolitan ice cream stripe pleated tunics.

Lightweight summer knits are updated with sequin and embellishment – knitted shrugs offer an alternative to outerwear.

Suiting is structured – high waist trousers and shorts are held together by fitted waistcoats. Outerwear is un-structured with sleeve detailing, exposed zips and exaggerated drawstring hoods giving a nod to 80's sports heritage. Rain macs are given the signature French Connection twist with a plastic floral coating and epaulette detailing.

Denim is given a new edge and adapted into frill front shirts, flirtatious dresses, sun bleached jackets and dungarees with detachable braces.

Jeans are given variety with wide leg, high waisted and super skinny fits leading the way. Coloured denim is here to stay, make a statement in red, lawn green or blue.

Accessories compliment the diversity of the collection, bags are oversized in metallic bronze and silver and high shine pvc, shoppers come in colourful sheer plastic with matching belts.

Large raffia styles with purse fastening add elegance alongside neutral leather designs. Jewellery adds the finishing touch with long strand beaded necklaces and assorted Perspex pendants mixed with chunky bangles.
