Is this weird or is it just us: This month French Connection is launching 1972 Vintage, a capsule collection of styles originally designed and sold by the company in 1972. The pieces will arrive later this month in select FC stores and online.
To us, the idea seems surprisingly similar to the 1971 collection from another UK-based retailer, Reiss—a capsule collection launched last year that is inspired by the year that the brand was founded, the rock icons and the flavor of that decade.
