But the main reason I sat down to write this article was to explore the demand for certain prints over others. Fashion has explored only a small selection of prints over the years, and even then many repeat season after season.

How to dress normcore, let me break it down: no-name, unflattering, comfortable jeans, boring unfashionable warm jacket, plain tee, plain white socks, trainers, etc. If you've mastered the look, it should be hard to tell from behind if you are a 50-something executive or just taking a break from backpacking in Nepal.

Many of you may have noticed the unbounded rise in under 25s cat-walking their way across Britain's high streets, colleges and public transport in large, salient and often flamboyant headphones.

But I do want to use the niqab to open up discussions that consider a wider phenomenon, which is driving the quest for cultural authenticity.
