Sneak Preview: French Connection Home

After a successful premiere with its spring/summer collection, British fashion & home brand French Connection heralds the new season with the launch of its autumn/winter collection in September. If '50 Shades of Grey' was a success, then this is the ongoing feast of grey hues for colder days. 

The premium collection continues to expand the product offering with a strong focus on occasional furniture, lighting, and decoration. Colours remain muted with neutral shades of white, grey and taupe taking center stage. A subtle introduction of somewhat stronger colours is seen across living textiles with earthy tones of khaki, rust and indigo complementing the usually neutral colour palette.

French Connection continues its summer success with a selection of refined products for a design-savvy home. The details are kept clean and simple, the colours muted, the textures rich - all this results in a calming sense of living with an injection of warmth for the upcoming colder days.

I love the chunky knit throw, the rustic coffee table with an industrial feel and the grey rug. With these accessories I am more than ready to welcome autumn!

  1. I absolutely love this look - thanks so much for posting this, I'm definitely going to check out the collection now. FC have been reported to be in trouble lately with falling profits (at least in the UK), so it's great to see them making a comeback with such a great range of homeware.
    Grey is calming and versatile - 50 shades indeed!

  2. I LOVE soft an pure.. (ti)

  3. Diese Stativlampe wollte ich schon lange haben, aber schwarze Kabel gehen gar nicht mehr! Schluchz...

    1. Schwarze Kabel sind das geringste Problem. Es gibt kreative Ideen, wie man Kabel "pimpen" kann;-)

  4. SOOOO much to love from their new collection, thanks for this preview, Igor.
    Their clean and simple style enriched with wonderful textures is just amazing and another proof, that grey don't have to be boring at all. ;) Can't wait to see the full range.
    All this great new collections, which are released right now, make me happily welcoming the autumn even a little bit more.
