Get the SS18 Catwalk Looks The Chic Geek Way

The Chic Geek and Base London has your entire SS18 wardrobe covered. Ticking all the must-have menswear trend boxes, there’s a shoe to suit every geek you want to be this Summer. From festival geek to holiday geek to business geek, Base London’s new collection of shoes will work with any look and in any situation. Here’s my picks of the SS18 catwalk looks and how to wear them:

 •    •    •

Something Shiny

1) One of the biggest trends of the season is hi-shine or patent finishes. You’ll be seeing much more vinyl and pvc in menswear over the coming seasons, trust me! Go smart in suiting in ‘Bexley Hi Shine’, just lose the tie and the skinny fit, because suits are getting looser, longer and more relaxed.

Bold Colour

2) Give yourself a colour injection with the ‘Morgan Suede’ driving shoe in Aqua. FYI, they also come in fuchsia pink. Think festival fun. Colour needs more colour, so be brave, be bold and be noticed. Here, I’ve gone for a bold, geometric anorak with bright accessorises and classic white sports socks.

Suede in Chelsea


3) The Chelsea boot is the style to invest in, this season. Base London has a full selection from the colourful suede ‘Ferdinand’ in the Tournament Range to the hi-shine ‘Truman’ with the striking contrast coloured elastic. I’ve gone pure Studio 54/The Deuce in a 70s inspired suit with a floral silk shirt open Simon Cowell style!

Show Your Stripes


4) Travel in style with the ‘Clipper’ easy holiday slip-on with contrasting trim and perforated upper. Vertical stripes is a major trend, this year, so match you deckchair, lie back and soak up the sun while sucking up your cocktail.

Sport some Vintage Style

5) Get on the retro sportswear trend in a classic pair of hi-shine ‘Strike’ penny loafers. Think 70s terraces in Sta-press denim and retro football top. Come on you Redheads!

Anything Goes!


6) The stars have aligned with the  ‘Orion’ lace-up in Washed Tan. It has an aged finish to compliment an eclectic look of patchwork and mis-matching colours and patterns. This is an anything goes approach and an expression of your individuality. Mix it up.
