Happy Diwali everyone!!
We had a fabulous diwali and to add more joy to the celebration was an invite from French Connection, to review their Autumn Collection. Being newbie fashion bloggers this is our first brand review and nothing can be more exciting then to review a brand we both love for its minimalistic, classic and simplified design philosophy.
The French Connection Autumn/ Winter collection ’12 is a mix of feminine and fluid textures with a lot of laces for the classic vintage look and we aren’t complaining. Afterall laces adds the sultry oomph without skin show with its see-through texture.
The collection includes a lot of bandage dresses in bold monotone colours. Though am not a big fan of bandage dresses but I totally love the full back zippers with the neon pop. I don’t think bandage dress works for Indian figures but Cheeky Ninja does rock the trend. We love the faux fur mufflers and sleeveless jackets as well as these knit mufflers, shame Mumbai doesn’t get cold enough.
The accessories collection is an eclectic mix of overtly feminine clutches and super fine belts; quite appropriate for the holiday season, the one’s in the pictures above are all FCUK clutches.
Am totally in love with this Sequin embellishment collar cocktail shift dress, ofcourse am a self confessed sequin hoarder as many of you would know.
Cheeky and I had a fun afternoon picking our favorites from the collection and we wish we had the money to own all of these.
(As mentioned, we were approached to review their collection, but we accepted it only because we love their collections. The products featured here are ones we really liked and would wear.).
