It's all about gothic glam next season according to those fashionably wise ones over at French Connection. Their Autumn / Winter 2012 collection has just landed online, and they've released this inspiring video showcasing their new season offering. Full of the usual grunge-style fashion edge creativity, the new season collection video displays a few key pieces we'll definitely be purchasing come September.

First things first, the leather dress; despite being a fashion essential in its own right, the leather dress has found itself right at the top of any fashionable in the know's AW12 wish list. French Connection's version has a Western take with textured Navajoe knot detailing and simplistic shape; the perfect AW12 staple. Another thing on our hit list includes their luxe sheer dress with embellished collar detail; an ultimate Christmas (did I just say Christmas, in July?!) party dress and good all-rounder.

Now let's talk leather jackets; definitely a stand out from the crowd type number, this studded sleeve aptly named "Let it be rock" jacket channels a sporty style whilst keeping it's cool with it's attention to detail. Finally the camo coloured themed contrast wool jacket which encapsulates AW12's army style to perfection.
