The last thing I ever expected to see in a shop like French Connection, usually the home of anything but ‘geek chic’, was an item of ladies clothing referencing retro gaming. Here we are, though, with the Alien Dress.
In a very thinly veiled reference to Space Invaders, this gaming print is fun, cute and very much a classic. Whether it really sits well with this sequin fringe is another matter. Thankfully they’ve kept the dress casual with a t-shirt style cut that’s perfect for teaming with jeans to keep things casual.
It’s available from French Connection online or in shops for a rather unexpected £120.
