FAITH CONNEXION SS24
A creative tribe with a diversity of inspirations, Faith Connexion has always had a flair for capturing the authenticity of the streets and mixing it irreverently with a strong dose of old-school French savoir-faire.
This season, remaining true to its core, the brand celebrates effortless elegance. Since its very beginning, it has been synonymous with youthfulness and a sense of ease. This collection promises to be no exception with a well curated range of outfits that exude confidence and carefree spirit and makes every piece feel like a natural part of one’s wardrobe.
It takes us on a journey with a cast of faces strolling the streets of cities worldwide, from parties to concerts to music festivals and encapsulates the very essence of youthful exuberance.
In this collection, Faith Connexion unveils a captivating array of see-through fabrics and transparency. A group of body-hugging dresses comes in various shades of pastel colors, exuding confidence and independence.
Showcasing a mix-and-match of fabrics, and sportswear-inspired elements, the collection bursts with a palette of colors evoking the nostalgia of carefree summer days.
Embroidered belts make a bold statement throughout the collection, with double belts adorning pants, while metal mesh dresses combined with unexpected fabrics like lace and tulle create a striking contrast. Technical fabrics, including shiny nylon, lend a sporty edge to the genderless designs.
As tweed gets a feminine makeover, gracing very short shorts, small bralettes, and short skirts, the collection includes wardrobe staples like simple tee-shirts and tank tops in « voile de coton », the ones everybody wants in its wardrobe. Among the collection’s highlights are a long jean skirt and a denim bermuda, both exquisitely embroidered in India.
The juxtaposition of a lace top, casually paired with a military-style embroidered belt layered over a pair of jeans, seemingly thrown together with ease, encapsulates the very essence of this collection, as if the model effortlessly grabbed whatever was at hand before leaving the house.
Freedom is at the heart of this collection with a « pieds nus dans ses baskets » ( barefoot in sneakers) vibe that captures the essence of summer.
Faith Connexion’s SS24 collection is a celebration of individuality, confidence, and the joy of dressing without constraints.
