TheChicGeek continued his journey north to the birthplace of Morrissey and Lowry - Salford Quays. Now, home to the BBC and ITV, these were the docks that supplied the world’s first industrial city.
Today, The Lowry theatre and gallery and the Imperial War Museum North are shiny centres of culture and the perfect backdrop for TheChicGeek’s latest OOTD.
TheChicGeek is rocking easy tourist chic, amongst the matchstick men, in a simple grey shirt and military green pleated trousers. Smart lace-up blue sandals, monogrammed belt and small backpack finishes this simple look. Bighead strikes again!

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 on with its white, baby blue and red palette. The shaved fur trims and cocoon leathers add a luxurious touch while the Peckham Pony Club slogans add a humourous and fun touch. This #SS16 collection is far from pony.
