  • FRENCH CONNECTION AW19
    FRENCH CONNECTION AW19AUTUMN / WINTER 2019 ‘A COLD DAY BY THE SEA’ Where many may seek comfort in the countryside or ski slopes during the winter months, this French Connection AW19 capsule collection heads to Britain’s southern coastline, to spend a cold day by the sea. Based on the unchanging concept of French Connection’s 'Effortless Style', this capsule focuses on a laid-back aesthetic, inspired by the sensibilities of Britain’s hardworking coastal residents. With a sense of confidence and nonchalance, these styles are updated with modern fabric and function. The influence of Britain’s coast is further presented in the collection’s colour palette, with pieces coming in shades such as Burned Beech, Raft Red and Dune, alongside more staple colours such as Utility Blue and White. The key pieces in this capsule collection include a Cotton/Nylon Deck Jacket with a large rear stow pocket, GORE-TEX® Mac raincoat, as well as relaxed garment dyed jerseys and graphic t-shirts.
