High street preview: French Connection menswear, autumn 18

The autumn 18 menswear offer from French Connection looks to New York artist Jean-Michel Basquiat for inspiration.

New York artist Jean-Michel Basquiat is the muse for French Connection’s autumn 18 menswear offer, which brings a colourful twist to everyday staples.

Bold shades are key to the collection, and bright orange and warm yellow appear on both knitwear and lightweight outerwear.

Standout items include a reworked classic bomber jacket, shirts patchworked from different checks and ginghams, a four-pocket military jacket given a functional update with a reflective stripe, and a double-breasted grey overcoat in fluffy textured wool.

The retailer’s classic slogan T-shirts also get the Basquiat treatment, appearing as graffiti-style French words and phrases on T-shirts and sweaters, “putting the French back into French Connection”.
