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 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.
