Looking the picture of diplomacy, TheChicGeek is wearing a classic lounge suit and club tie, the umbrella is a nod to the typical English weather.

DIPLOMACY - Designed by Kieran Timberlake, the new cube shaped embassy is exceptionally environmentally friendly and features a security moat.

Continuing his series of #FutureIcons in association with BMW i3, TheChicGeek drove East to see the first of London's new Elizabeth Line which opens in 2018. Dressed to travel in style, TheChicGeek is wearing a navy suit from MRPORTER.COM and silk shirt for when he arrives in warmer climes.

TRAVEL - The only visible Elizabeth Line station, at the moment, is at Canary Wharf in London's Docklands. Designed by Lord Foster, the new station has been built in the dock and features tropical roof gardens and a leisure complex above the new Underground line.

the francis crick institute london bmw i3Continuing his #FutureIcons series, in association with the BMW i3 MRPORTER.COM limited-edition, TheChicGeek wanted to be the first to see the future design icons of London popping up all over town.

Quietly, it's electric don't you know, he drove to The Francis Crick Institute just behind The British Library. TheChicGeek has his science head on in this OOTD in a JW Anderson space shirt and Cutler & Gross spectacles. Somebody pass me the plug!

SCIENCE - Named after the man who co-discovered the DNA molecule, The Francis Crick Institute is a biomedical discovery institute, next to St. Pancras station, dedicated to understanding the scientific mechanisms of living things. Its work will help to understand why disease develops and to find new ways to treat, diagnose and prevent illnesses such as cancer, heart disease, stroke, infections, and neurodegenerative diseases.

BMW i3 Mr Porter limited edition chic geekTheChicGeek was given the privilege of experiencing BMW’s new limited-edition MRPORTER.COM i3 electric car for his latest series of OOTD. Looking sleek in its navy/black colourway with white highlights, the new BMW i3 X MRPORTER.COM is the city car equivalent of a classic tuxedo.

TheChicGeek thought he’d take a spin around the city and take a first look at the latest crop of buildings springing up in London. Much like the new BMW i3, these buildings will become the future design icons of London.

ART - The first stop was Tate Modern’s new extension, opening this year, housing its video and performance art collection.

#OOTD 72 Peacock Geek 4/4

souvenir jacket spring summer 2016 menswear chic geek

Teach me tiger! One of the season's most fun menswear items, the souvenir jacket is a kitsch take on the classic bomber. Great for holidays or just something to have a bit of fun with. Forget Gucci, Saint Laurent or Valentino, this is only £55 at ASOS. It's also well padded for warmth.

Wear it, here, layered up with lots of pattern or print in fashion's new take on maximalism or use it as a standout item with a simple plain T-shirt and trousers, letting the jacket do the talking.
