1. Dean Fallon,
Birmingham City University
Hilary says... 'This futuristic-functional menswear collection juxtaposes large, strong silhouettes and constricting belts and chest pieces, and contrasts traditional tweed and wool with Kevlar, polyurethane and neoprene.'
Dean recommends... 'Dover Street Market (doverstreetmarket.com) is a real treat, whether you're looking for an investment item or just inspiration.'
2. Suzanne Graham,
Hilary says... 'Menswear based on the Beggar Prince from Ningbo, Zhejiang Province, whose good looks and ragbag-wardrobe made him an online sensation. Suzanne combines ill-assorted knits, anoraks, skirts and cropped trousers for a contemporary nomadic street style.'
Suzanne recommends... 'I've always loved Swedish shop Cheap Monday (cheapmonday.com); it does dark and edgy clothing. Muji (muji.eu) is good for staple pieces that have a great design aesthetic.'
3. Luke Sydenham, University
of West England, Bristol
Hilary says... 'Takes the decadent look-at-me 1970s-era of Studio 54, stirs in a hint of the body-conscious Miami Beach fraternity, and then adds an exotic, oriental feel. Sizzling, clashing prints offset with a metallic silver jersey, for a tropical cocktail of long, lean looks.'
Luke recommends... 'A Child of the Jago (achildofthejago.com) in Shoreditch has a quirky and eclectic mix, while Start in Rivington Street (start-london.com) stocks some of my favourite designers.'
4. Rebecca Head,
Bath Spa University
Hilary says... 'Sporty, hi-tech and based on skiwear. Contrasts between futuristic padding and quilting echo the musculature of the body, in bold primary colours, with the softer, organic motifs of flowers.'
Rebecca recommends... 'Dover Street Market has a wide and interesting mix of contemporary labels. Charity shops such as Oxfam (oxfam.org.uk) in Wimbledon have some good designer pieces.'
