The catalogue contains 16 pages of high summer fashion including womenswear, menswear, underwear, the bathroom collection and accessories. Best buys include the shoe string strap vests for girls (pounds 20) and combat shorts for boys (pounds 40).
Make sure you get your copy well in advance of your summer holiday as the only drawback with anything that comes through the post is having to wait for it. The plus side, however, is the fact you can try things on at your leisure - and, unlike other mail order catalogues, French Connection has a well established reputation for producing good quality clothes, so, however glossy the pictures, you are sure to receive something that meets your expectations. This is a must-see before embarking on your seaside jaunt. Enquiries 0870-606 3285.
