This infamously fabulous duo are back with their latest Spring Summer collection for 2011, ambushing last London Fashion Week with models dressed in the collection masked as Fanny or Jessy swanning around various parties and shows.
Appropriate isn't it, for a collection entitled Watch This Face, and for a duo that you must also watch. Moving away from their previously androgynous themes, the pair have started to express the hyper-sexy and glam-gaudy realm of fashion that Fanny and Jessy both personally do very well. The girls took inspiration from the 90s, supermodel stances and luxurious Italian excess, with special mention to the wonderful Romain Chevalé who created subtle prints which are embedded into the nude tones of this collection.
The genre hopping, ever-talented Danny Sangra went from FAJ to Miu Miu and back again, with this his latest short film for the girls, soundtracked by the Dreamtrak Diamond Sound remix of Teeth's excellent 'See Spaces':
Any single piece from this collection would not look out of place on anyone from Rihanna (who has already worn FAJ) to Liz Hurley re-living her safety pin dress days, to little old me - having pored over the pics they sent me, I've already put in my order. For example, to help me work out my deepest TLC Crazy Sexy Cool feelings:

This collection signifies an evolution for FAJ. They seem more secure in their aesthetic, so therefore more daring and more sophisticated too; whilst simultaneously being effortlessly comfortable in their skin. Bravo! Check my faves from the lookbook (which is also fabulously done by Rory DCS) below:
