French Connection Has Revealed The Details Of Its Menswear Range For Autumn/Winter 2009

The season starts off with a prison story, presenting styles and details with a heavily distressed penitentiary influence. The collection then moves on to revel in a horror theme where colour, texture, and print work symbiotically to convey the move in to darkest winter. Finally, the range leads in to Christmas with a colourful and kitsch mountaineering inspired collection guaranteed to get you on the go.

French Connection enters the season with a nod to 1930’s workwear. Soft powder pinks and Oxford blues are complemented by micro spots and stripes and vintage bib or removable collar detailing. The mood darkens with the introduction of the Gothic, including Beetlejuice striped shirts, motor jackets in leather, or a maroon wool suit with white tipping and buttons. The mountaineering story provides technical down-filled removable linings, ropes and toggles, paired with fashionable gingham shirts and covetable knitwear.

Lorna Perrin, director of marketing and PR at French Connection, said: “For French Connection menswear we have focused on preppy chic blazers and shirts, while knitwear is given original design twists, and tailoring is fashion forward in quality fabrics and designs. The younger FCUK sub-brand leads the way in stylish streetwear with checked shirts, authentic denims, fun graphic tees and battered leathers.”

FCUK presents vibrant street sportswear with highlights of ‘pop’ colours. Bold dark wash denim and a base monochrome palette are livened up with bright piping on baseball jackets and bold prints. Bright colours prevail with hip-hop style retro track tops and alternative windbreakers with multi seams and jersey collars.

French Connection’s other main line, FC72, this season focuses on heavy detailing to liven up staples such as a cotton donkey jacket or denim dungarees. Overdying, paint-splattering, crushed knits, and heavy stitching all lend to a distressed penitentiary feel, solidified with a fun barbed wire stripe print. The season ends on a softer note, with brushed cottons and cosy bright chunky knits with fairisle detailing.

French Connection is also placing a high emphasis on men’s accessories this season. Men’s bags are the main focus, but a complete collection of ties, hats, cuff links and leather belts are also available.

About French Connection
French Connection was founded in 1972 by Stephen Marks who set out to create well-designed men’s clothing that would appeal to a wide audience.

Dad’s Army T-Shirts For Father’s Day By Burton

Burton, leading high street retailer of men’s fashion, has launched a limited edition ‘Dad’s Army’ t-shirt in conjunction with armed forces charity – the British Forces Foundation.

The new t-shirt has been designed to help support the British Forces Foundation, (BFF) and is being made available in 47 Burton stores and online. Burton, the mens fashion retailer, has pledged that for every one of the t-shirts, it will make a donation of £1.50 to the charity, in an effort to raise an overall donation of around £10,000.

The British Forces Foundation was set up in 1999 and aims to support all personnel currently serving in the army by providing them with quality entertainment to encourage high spirits and greater enjoyment of duty. The charity appeals to performing artists like musicians to travel to different countries and entertain soldiers, pilots and sailors while they are away from home.

Founded and still supported by the entertainer, Jim Davidson, the BFF has helped entertain women and men in the armed forces for the past 10 years and is now teaming up with Burton in an attempt to encourage more donations in honour of this year’s Father’s Day. The present initiative aims to support families where the fathers are in combat, around Father’s Day, a time when the gap left by their absence can be felt especially hard by partners and children.

The new Burton’s “Dad’s Army” t-shirts will provide a fitting dedication to those men currently serving overseas who have families awaiting their return and it is hoped by Burton that the money raised for the charity will help to reduce the impact and feelings of separation which can be felt by the families of service men around Father’s Day. Burton will also be offering a 10% discount to all customers with a valid MOD card in select stores until 31st July. Please see website for details and locations.

Tais-ties, a fashion neckties brand, launched its first collection of non-conformist ties.

Tais-ties, spiritually lead by its designer Tai, builds its non conformist design philosophy on the Yakuza, the Japanese gangsters. With names like Bill Killed, Pinky, Dirty Business, Seppuku and Tattoo, Tai plays with different rituals, like Yubitsume, also chopping off the pinky.

Products are different, in shape and pattern, and not business alike. According to designer Tai: “I want men to differentiate themselves with one of the limited possibilities they have, ties!” Tai admits that tie Bill Killed (blood red with bullet holes) can generate some trouble while doing business, but responds “I have to admit you might not wear tais-ties at every occasion, but honestly, I don’t want that!”

Tais-ties are hand made in Milan from Italian satin silks, hand stitched in Manhattan, NYC, and shipped in a wooden box with a heat burnt “Tai” logo. Tais-ties are priced $150 and above and available via their website www.tais-ties.com and selected boutiques.
