From their first FCUK campaign, French Connection established their brand as being innovative, creative, exciting, pushing boundaries and making a statement. The new French Connection campaign studies the men and women behaviours, clothing and styles.

Fashion and advertising, a great way to end the weekend and start the week feeling creative and inspired.
