#OOTD 69 Peacock Geek 1/4

One part David Bowie, one part Alessandro Michele's Gucci, Peacock Geek is the new expression in menswear. Exotic, flamboyant, colourful: it's a whole geek world of adjectives. It references the past while looking boldly to the future. Be brave, more is definitely more. It's time to experiment.

Summer dressing just got a whole lot easier thanks to the pyjama shirt. Jump out of bed, put your head on and you're good to go. American menswear brand, Brooks Brothers, knows a thing or two about seersucker. This most American of fabrics comes in the colours of the star spangled banner, this season, in contrasting stripes. Team your shorts with a matching hat and contrasting polka dot trainers. What rhymes with Nantucket?!

#ootd 65 - Chic Geek Collections - Fendi

The eyes have it at Fendi menswear for SS16. Those pesky bugs have multiplied and become a coloured abstract on jackets and accessories. Team with turned up chinos and chunky boots as we transition into spring. The other print is a kind of computerised camouflage which works just as well on its own or clashed here with those famous Fendi bugs.

Always running around town like there's ants in his pants, TheChicGeek opted for them on his bag, this season, thanks to Paul Smith's new SS16 collection. The look has a feel of the 80s, the Memphis Group with a dash of Beetlejuice thanks to the shiny fabrics and monotone prints.

This is young menswear designer, Daniel W. Fletcher's first collection - he's already won a ChicGeek Award - This, his SS16 collection, was picked up by American retailer Opening Ceremony and is emblazoned with 'Peckham Pony Club', in reference to the social change inner city areas are experiencing, particularly in London. Peckham in South London was once the preserve of Del Boy and his three wheeled van, it's now become another hip(ster) neighbourhood as people have been priced out of the centre or want to move in closer from the suburbs. Daniel's collection has that retro Cardin/Courrègges futurist vibe going…
