|"An amazing new designer for my-wardrobe.com this SS11 is Moschino. This season they have really gone back to their 80s root with studs, colour blocking and minimalism. My favourite piece has to be the white shirt with an exploded peace sign trim. It's simple yet striking design really caught my eye. I'd buy a size up for that authentic 80s look."
Moschino White Exploded Peace Symbol Shirt - £145

Polo Ralph Lauren Blue Pink Check Cotton Shirt - £80

Lucy Norris, Editor, Pret-a-rever.com
|"The ten year anniversary of Riccardo Tisci at Givenchy saw him deliver a DNA Tisci collection. South American Catholicism, his love for leopard print - and his ongoing mission to fight for the beauty in menswear renders this stunning piece. Less overt than one of his lace shirts, this jacquard top achieves a sporty ease. Subtle but striking."
Givenchy Top - £793 from Luisaviaroma
|"Raf Simons' stand-out collection for Jil Sander is a through the line success. Bridget Riley, Yves Klein, Jim Lambie - this collection is packed with abstract references. The footwear doesn't get away lightly. Bold blue soles - on formal leather uppers - are guaranteed to bring happiness, wherever they tread. This season it's all about the Jil Sander crayolas."
Jil Sander Shoes - £495 from Luisaviaroma
|"Anyone who doesn't think this piece is utterly beautiful needs to get themselves on YouTube - to watch the runway show. The 2046 film score - and the stunning set rendered a Star Wars Jedi colony. As the models came pouring out from behind the circular screens, these coats billowed with a menacing romance. Eastern in origin, this directional piece will ensure your wardrobe is relevant for years to come. Sleeveless and lightweight, it can be layered up for down."
Dior Homme Coat - £1079 from Luisaviaroma
|"Right at the heart of the trend for linen tailoring, this piece should have sold out by now. Double facing raw cashmere to look like linen is a subversive trick that Alexander McQueen would have reveled in. As part of Sarah Burton's first collection, its pared down quality is appropriately unassuming - and humble. Alexander McQueen loved the raw romance of a toile, and Sarah takes his narrative forward with respect - and elegance."
Alexander McQueen Jacket - £840 from Matches
|"This shirt gives me so many reasons to love it. Like McQueen, Dries Van Noten respects the artist. This white shirt, showered with ink splattered chinoiserie speaks to me of fashion's burgeoning conversation with the east. This isn't Chinese porcelain though. It's a man's shirt. And the print isn't seemingly executed with precision, it's spontaneous, hurried and artisan. Dries Van Noten has made a canvas of the man's shirt. A Western emblem of success, and China seems to be all over it. Read into this what you will."
Dries Van Noten Shirt - £282 from LN-CC
