DARREN SKEY

Head of menswear, Harvey Nichols;

____________________________________________________

1. Wooyoungmi jersey zip-through hooded jacket (£395)

“On-trend, textural and versatile. Sisters Young Mi and Jang Hee Woo create every piece with their ideal man in mind.”



2. M Cohen oxidised silver and vintage Hermès silk bracelet (£225)

“Vintage luxury made contemporary, exclusive to us.”



3. Lou Dalton skull T-shirt (£190)

”Exquisitely designed T-shirts accented with intricate beading from this up-and-coming British designer. Exclusive to Harvey Nichols.”



4. Alejandro Ingelmo leather ‘Tron’ black and gold hi-tops (£365)

”Futuristic hi-tops with a flash of metallic gold hardware, a key trend for spring/summer 2013. Again, an exclusive.”



5. 3x1 denim heather grey-rinse jeans (£375)

“Expertly crafted in the US from unique Japanese selvedge denim, these jeans have been produced exclusively for Harvey Nichols.”



6. Dries Van Noten silk camo-print shirt (£252)

“Silk adds a touch of luxury to the classic camo- print. A great transitional piece – best worn in summer with a light-coloured suit or double denim.”



7. Neil Barrett jersey shawl-collar tux jacket (£675)

“The dinner suit meets casual cool with Neil Barrett’s take on the classic black tuxedo, in an innovative jersey fabric. Wear with the matching trousers for an evening look or team with a white T-shirt and dark denim for day.”

STEPHEN AYRES

Head of fashion, Liberty;

liberty.co.uk

____________________________________________________

1. Agi & Sam polyester tapestry-print T-shirt (£90)

“This hot young duo are masters of print- on-print. Liberty has an exclusive range of T-shirts.”



2. This Company Escentric Molecules 01 scent (£64)

“Uniquely, you won’t notice this fragrance on yourself, but the impact on others is amazing. I’ve never been asked what I’m wearing so much.”



3. Dries Van Noten denim camo-print jeans (£235) “Van Noten’s collection this season was focused on camouflage. This slim-fit jean, in a subtle jacquard-weave, is a chic take.”



4. Uniform Wares ‘251 Series’ watch (£390)

“British designers, such as Uniform Wares, are growing in international importance. This is the perfect balance of modern and traditional.”



5. Ann Demeulemeester Men’s beige double-breasted trench coat (£995)

“Usually associated with a darker palette, the incredible Belgian designer shows a softer side. This double-breasted beige trench coat was a personal favourite of mine, for its fluidity.”



6. Want Les Essentiels de la Vie navy cotton-canvas and leather tote (£275) “a great shape for summer. The pattern is woven, but from a distance, looks like bead embroidery. It will bring to life any outfit.”



7. Kenzo weave-print sweatshirt (£225)

“Sweatshirts are having a revival. This season, my favourite is from the rejuvenated label, Kenzo. The colours are like an Ibiza sunset.”

1. Asos dip-dye denim shirt (£30)

“Denim is one of our biggest-selling departments, with a huge range of different fits and washes. This is a great take on the classic denim shirt.”



2. Comme des F*ckdown cotton slogan sweatshirt (£55)

“Bold, brash and loud, this cult street label will certainly get you noticed, and is a new brand at Asos for spring 2013.”



3. Herschel polyester ‘Heritage’ backpack (£55)

“Still the man bag of choice, it mixes heritage detailing with modern functionality.”



4. Asos cotton-mix animal-print jumper (£30)

“Print is still a major trend in menswear at the moment. This subtle leopard-pattern knit looks great teamed with black skinny jeans.”



5. Lightning Bolt cotton ‘Bolt’ print T-shirt (£36)

“Spring/summer 2013 will be the second season Asos has stocked Lightning Bolt, known for its sports-inspired clothing. This graphic tee perfectly demonstrates its playful yet stylish aesthetic.”



6. Asos leather bomber jacket (£100)

“This classic-shaped jacket is one of our best-sellers. It’s easy to wear when dressing up or down, and offers great value.”



7. Nike leather and mesh ‘Air Max 90’ trainers (£105) “With sport continuing to be a huge menswear trend, Nike is as popular as ever. These trainers look as good now as they did back in the day.”
