He is a fashion trend setter in his peer group but he is heavily influenced bymusical icons and scenes. Like the bands he supports he is extremely loyal tothe brands he trusts. The way he looks and the clothes he wears is integral to communicating ‘his identity’ to the world. The UK’s most influential brands
