Located close to Bond Street tube station, French Connection on Oxford Street offers stylish high street fashion for women and men. As its flagship store, it carries the brand’s largest array of casualwear, workwear, accessories, underwear, jewellery, and beauty and grooming. Best for pretty mini dresses and denim staples for women and sporty everyday essential with a subtle sense of humour for men, there’s bound to be something to catch your eye.
Once known for its controversial ‘FCUK’ slogan, you’ll find a wide range of styles in the store today, though their playful marketing campaigns and window displays are still a staple of the brand’s identity. Founded in 1972, it was an instant hit for its fun, care-free attitude and was one of the main High Street stores to define style for young people across the world in the 1990s, with stores in 32 different countries.
A home range for adding their trend-led design taste to your interiors is also available. Including textiles, lighting, kitchenware, furniture, and accessories, you’ll find something chic for every room in the house.
On the first floor of the Oxford Street flagship, you’ll also find the BRWD coffee shop for some rest and relaxation in between browsing. Known around London for their expertly brewed coffee and delicious, freshly made cake, snacks, salads and sandwiches, it provides a nice alternative to the large coffee chains that are often found in stores.
Neighbouring French Connection stores can be found inside House of Fraser and on Argyll Street so if you find yourself in need of an out-of-stock size, ask one of the sales team to see if there’s one available just down the road.
