French Connection

French Connection provides well-designed, stylish clothing that appeals to a broad market.

A favourite on the high street since it's creation in 1972, French Connection or FCUK as it is often known, offers a higher level of quality and design than many of their competitors and this also applies to their stylish website.

COLLECTIONS

The website offer a wide range of products including tailored womenswear, menswear, Jeans, sportswear, childrens clothes, accessories like shoes and bags, as well as bath and beauty products. You can now buy FC:Kids and FC:Baby online too. P&P costs £3.95 per order.

HISTORY

The company was founded by Stephen Marks,who previously worked for Louis Feraud in Paris (and was also married to Nicole Farhi at the time). The company began from a humble pair of hotpants and grew into menswear in 1976 and childrenswear in 1986. The FCUK logo that caused so much controversy has now been phased out and French Connection has grown to 77 stores across the U.K.

MAGAZINE

The website features an online magazine with advice on the latest trends for women and men, buys of the month and most wanted pieces. A New Movement is a blog, acting as an outlet for the brands quirky side and also features news and event info.
