Mix luxury, streetwear, and French flair and you get the innovative aesthetic of Paris-founded brand, Faith Connexion. For their Fall-Winter 2022 collection, the brand remains true to its archive, while reimagining classic pieces and silhouettes with modern branding.

Drawing inspiration from the 2000s, the brand's "gothic bling" approach to fashion is perfectly emanated through a series of designs that push the boundaries of traditional luxury-wear. Updated logotypes and logoforms are seen strewn across tweed suits, on the back of a hooded micro bomber, and running down the leg of jeans and the heels of shoes.

Sleek silhouettes meet skin-tight turtlenecks, as the models embrace individuality by adding their own edge and rebellion, nodding to the intended subjects for the fashion house. Faith Connexion codes return with shearlings, often reversible, composed in the form of thick hoodies with leopard-printed fur. Tweed is repurposed as a classy hunting jacket or statement cardigan.

Decades and eras intertwine, as 90's hip-hop is imagined as an oversized jacket in tweed lurex, and modern silhouettes adorn couture suits complete with a pencil skirt and delicate blazer. Patterns emerge in dresses and skirts, and patchwork jeans provide bold choices to an otherwise classic look.
