High street preview: French Connection womenswear autumn 15

With the catwalks awash with retro references for autumn, French Connection has channelled musical icons and rock ‘n’ roll styles from decades past for its latest womenswear collection.

Hippy-style paisley and floral-printed silk and lace are used on long, languid dresses straight from the 1970s.

The decade’s punk movement also comes through, particularly on a crushed-velvet skirt and matching bomber jacket outfit, safety pin-patterned and plaid collared shirts and a classic leather biker jacket complete with heavy metal hardware.

The flamboyance of Ziggy Stardust and the glamour of 1980s disco combines in sparkling over-embellished pieces, with sequins aplenty and tasseled appliqué bringing sparkle to partywear.
