French Connection India SS’13

April 18, 2013

As a lot of high street brands and even designers are exaggerating the b&w stripes trend, French Connection India is one label which is focusing on the perfect silhouette and celebrating femininity to the fullest. Following the French Connection India’s last few trends I was actually impressed seeing a whole new lot, with very rare sight of repeats from the last collection. A couple of days back I was invited over to review their SS’13 collection. To make it a whole new experience I came up with 3 different day to night looks from their latest SS’13 collection. Check out the crazy video RashNair shot during my review : DAY to NIGHT  3 looks & 1 collection LOOK 1 – Semi-Formals LOOK 2 – Casuals LOOK 3- Casuals French Connection has always been a one stop solution for various moods of styling. Not just the styling part, but they have various color palettes, prints and cuts to suit every mood. The most eye catchy part were the color blocked garments, crochet and neon. Will I check out French Connection India again? Of course. Every season! 😉 You can now shop online at :

Tennis balls, rackets and courts, crocodiles, an umpire’s chair and a pattern of folded polos which were printed in loops and repeated in abstract patters on shirts, pants and parkas. This print on print infusion in shades of pop orange, cobalt blue and ivory saw peter pan collars, matching accessories, Harrington jackets and summer trench coats to accomplish the print on print look. Sporty Color-Blocked Chic The creative print on print addition did not let the other signature sportswear style take a back seat. The runway also saw polo shirts, waffle-textured blazers, sports dresses and casual chic. Although this collection too had an interesting trend to spot. In solid colors of sunrise orange, grey  indigo,  beige, monochromes and yellow; the palette was mismatched in various color blocked combos. The color blocking saw abstract patterns on sports dresses with a sleek silhouette to compliment the female frame. For men the look was kept casual, summer blessed and ranged from board-shorts to well fitted denims. Stay tuned for some more SS’13! 😉
