French Connection presents a more formal trend-driven take on summer stories, focussing on clean sophisticated lines and key individual statement pieces. Early in the season pieces see military influences where khaki combat shorts are adorned with unusually placed pockets. Epaulettes top off rolled-up sleeve shirts while zips lend a utility feel to pockets and high sheen finishes harden up early summer looks. The season's second injection gives a nod to classic motor racing with metallics and colour bringing the look to life.

Chequered flag prints and bold stripes in primary colours give sports tops a retro feel, sitting perfectly under a perforated leather jacket. High shine metallic blue nylon jackets and apple green slim fit jeans give a sharp contrasting edge, while bright white denim with built in crease effect or waxy coated black denim create visual interest. When summer's in full swing, turn down the heat and stay dapper with 1930's styling and give an understated air of loose relaxed cool as muted colours prevail.

French Connection Formal, our premium suiting range, goes from strength to strength with comfortable compact linens perfect for a weekend away. Elegant lapels streamline the look from last season, while modern stretch fabrics have been used to compliment the slim silhouette. Cotton styles add a relaxed vibe to smart easy-to-wear suiting, in plain or patterned, striped or checked - perfect for your summer work wardrobe. Suiting continues to sit in a dedicated area in store, and comes with a completely free tailoring service on unfinished hems in store by trained staff.

FCUK offers a more sports inspired look, focussing on battered fabrics to give casual styles a raw edge. The motor racing influence is most prevalent in this part of the collection with acid washes on faded sweat tops in navy and khaki lending a lived-in feel, while patchwork, abstract seams, zips and piping add appeal.

The navy bomber jacket with red piping and stripe cuffs, or a white and silver zip up hooded windcheater, are the ultimate casual summer jacket. Black or blue denim provides the perfect understated accompaniment. Shirts are simple yet suave - pick granddad styles with contrast cuffs or cool chintzy floral prints in purple or orange. Wear shirts open over plain block colour tees; a simple navy cardigan layers on top, while tonal stripe knits are a bolder alternative.

FC72 is a capsule collection of authentic vintage sportswear with a distinctly collegiate feel. The FC72 logo appears printed and sewn throughout to give the range unity. This range of relaxed sweats, checked shirts, and old school polo shirts play on traditional finishes and expectations. A striped polo shirt trim on the cuff of a short sleeve shirt surprises, while a red and white gingham shirt features different thicknesses of plaid, while patches on the cuffs and lapels give a twist to cowboy cool.

Accessories compliment the entire clothing range by utilising a variety of different fabrics, colours and formal and casual styles. Beautiful soft leather holdalls and perforated leather wallets add a touch of style and class to a smart summer look. A matching set of cream canvas travel bags in different sizes gives a Great Gatsby feel.

Army colours and camouflage patterns adorn caps and bags, while webbing belts give a military edge to a laid back look. Belts are tan or chocolate brown leather and covered in studs or eyelet detail. Scarves are the essential accessory - stripes, checks, thin or thick - all in pastel hues, a palette which spills over to encapsulate our tie offering, the finishing touch to any of our formal suiting.
