You can still head over to ASOS to get your selection of London based designer Christopher Shannon exclusive collection called Kidda. Christopher Shannon aesthetic is based around injecting classic street style references into forward thinking design led sportswear, experimentally.
I love this collection it's pretty fresh any of these pieces would be great injection into a younger modern mans wardrobe. Hot on the radar for me has to be the Sweat Shirt and Vest. Check out the collection and go get it now here before it's gone!
I was invited to the Christopher Shannon show, during Menswear day at London Fashion Week. Keep a look out for this post on the all new stylestandsalone.com launching soon.

I have been keeping a close eye on Zac Efron for a while, some people may argue that his style is a little plain and unimaginative but I feel he has that classic American style down to an art.
At a recent appearance I couldn't get over some of the key pieces Zac wore, I loved the Sunglasses and the jacket definitely stood out. Zac really does young the classic Americana well he could be a future style icon to look out for!

Weekend Offender is a pretty new brand, from what I have seen from the new SS12 collection I'm really liking, now you may be thinking that you have seen this kind of style around before, leave that idea a side and take a look a the cool relaxed detailing and colourways surrounding this collection. For SS12 we see key pieces including hooded wax coated cagoules with slick wooden buttons and branded toggles, fine knitwear in an array of colours and as always an iconic range of printed T-Shirts celebrating British youth culture past and present.
I'm telling you styled correctly, you could be the stylish guy walking down the road. Strong basics with a those details can really make your look your own! by mixing things up. It's not just me who think Weekend Offender are doing good things, music industry artists such as Rizzle Kicks, Tinie Tempah and Paul Weller have stocked up from Weekend Offenders flagship store in London.
I would wear the Jackets in the day with a Short but this could easily work in the evening with a Trouser. I would layer the Shirt over the T-Shirt leaving it open or just wearing them separately.
Take a look at the site and see what you think.
Stand outs from the current the range -

Sometimes is nice to be surprised right? I recently attended Margin a trade show held in central london. Margin is the trade show if your a small independent brand. The trade show connects these brands with the fashion industry buyers and press.
Death by Cutie
Based in Sheffield Death by Cutie's stand out piece from the collection had to be the sweat shirt below As I speaking to Luke he was telling some of the great feed back from the quirky printed sweat jumper. I can clearly see why, it's fun and quirky with a great twist putting the Leopard print on to the iconic telephone box I really like this!
Most small brands start out producing sweat shirts and t-shirts not all produce good designs. Although most of the brands adopt this idea of expression, each brand had their little stamp which made things slightly different.
I really liked this sweat shirt by Twenty Four who are based in Leicester simple graphics are the way for way forward, I can't get in enough of clean graphics right now.Personally I'm not keen on graphics that are over the top, poorly designed, or "cheesey" looking. We have all seen the slogan art work around right? Super light and soft interms of quality, I think the boys at Twenty Four have got this sweat shirt!
The New Black
From Seoul to Edinburgh, where this brand is now based, this bold graphic t-shirt has the coolest little difference that the motif has a special reflective vinyl that shines under the light at night but looks equally as bold in the day.
This brand based in Birmingham are creatively producing some interesting silhouettes with in the realms of streetwear the collection reminded me very much of some of the street styles out in Japan. These constructed camouflage low crotch shorts (below) have some great detailing pockets a different option to the more shorter of shorts. The design duo were a pleasure to speak too there was a local connection all round! I also took notice of this over sized leopard printed t-shirt, the relaxed style came in a light fabric choice and the colour option of a green leopard really stood out.
Margin was an exprience to see, I would only say that it would be really interesting to see more actual menswear collections rather than a lot of brands with sweat shirts and T-shirts. I wish all the brands featured the best of luck!
