Style & Then Some

French Connection Press Day | AW2012 Sneak Peek

Naomi Morello went to the FCUK press day for us to find out what’s in store for Autumn/Winter. 

French Connection confirmed its position on the high street podium with a versatile ensemble of pieces in a wide range of colours from smoked grey and baby pink to dark yellow and burgundy. Would you believe it, some of the items were even price-friendly!

Looks like sequins are back for the Winter season. This pine green and silver mini dress certainly brought back my Christmas spirit.

Also, keep an eye out for the purple sequin leopard print clutch, definitely something you don’t see everyday.

One of the key pieces was this stunning mustard blazer, a perfect match for the autumn season.

This printed mini dress also caught my eye. Abstract tree motifs in soft pastel colours and a twist of hot pink reminded me of Yayoi Kusama’s eccentric paintings.

Accessories were kept to a minimum. Black leather bags and pumps created a clean and simple contrast with the colourful outfits.

As for Menswear,the collection incorporated two different sides of Britain: traditional tweed suits à la Colin McDowell paired up with velvet bow ties and neutral shirts clashed with lilac striped tees, denim and bright purple knitwear, creating a Shoreditch High Street feel.
