If you’re in for colored and VERY low rise skinny jeans, then this is totally the brand for you! Oh and, yeah, wide leg jeans with frayed hems and low rise…. how about those, do these “speak” to you? 😉 (see image below)

The low-meets-highbrow French design crew Faith Connexion went in on a semi-’60’s and ’70’s rocker vibe for men’s Spring, which also included a co-presentation of women’s Resort.

Yet for the most part, the mood was very much what Faith Connexion has established over the past few years: one of eccentric sexiness, piled on a loosely DIY philosophy that appeals to a wide market—from rascally skaters to It girls to fancier flaneur types.

Men saw excellent greaser leather jackets, along with groovy tie-dyes (there was that ’60s cue) on sweatshirts and Faith Connexion’s signature cargo pants. Tuxedo slacks were big and baggy, while silk trousers had a bit more of a pool to their break. These were notable, especially when styled with a pink-stained denim shirt-jacket and layered T-shirts.

Womenswear skewed racier. There were camouflaged wrapped dresses, one-shouldered bandaged knit gowns, and the like. A Lurex jumper was described by a publicist, humorously, as “Christmastime.” Both genders had T-shirts and tops printed with “New York Is My Home,” ditto for Los Angeles.

The newsiest things at Faith Connexion today were its series of collabs; Kappa on tees, Giuseppe Zanotti on fuzzy shin guard heels, K-Way on swimwear (K-Way is a French athletic brand, previously unknown to this reviewer), and what would be the combined collections’ highlight: fake jeans, screen printed on heavy elastane leggings, by the recent Central Saint Martins graduate Stefan Cooke. Available for both men and women, this particular partnership hit the Faith Connexion sweet spot: cool, current, and a little bit crazy.
