Based on the themes of Dark Romance (Victorian inspired), Grace of Light (futuristic Atlantis...also the inspiration for Alexander McQueen's Spring 2010 collection), and a Tribal Spirit set to the beat of African drums, Faith Connexion's S/S'10 line puts an effortless modern spin on the high-glam disco era of the late 70s & 80s. Designer Ilan Delouis contemplated what the perfect wardrobe would consist of this season, and came up with richly embellished - yet still wearably comfy - silks, leathers, and soft cotton jerseys. Standout pieces include the tres Grace Jones hoodie jumpsuit, shiny black mini, early Lacroix-worthy feathered poof skirt, and, perfect for a hot date or gallery hopping or simply being casually fabulous: the very vintage drapey wrap top with sequined wing applique.
