Faith Connextion goes underground. Literally. For the house’s first show, a noble building with marble stairs wasn’t enough.

Wedges with a fetish twist, sheer mini dresses with a punk edge - worn with ripped stockings. Micro and oversize. Rockstar style furs, fur lining in parka jackets - military accents poking out here and there. Golden sequins on the legs of jumpsuits, celebrating sporty style with bright orange camouflage print sweatshirts. Army crew cuts, with leather trousers and shirts worn open, fluttering in the breeze. Cardigans embellished with embroidered crests, and a touch of tie dye. Studs, lace, fringes, a rainbow of feathers. Grungy tartan shirts, oversize sweaters, felt hats. Stripes, sharp animal prints and - obviously - studs. Apparently spiky, but never dangerous.
