Aspects: Wake up to the city that never sleeps.

The towering skyscrapers, the verdant expanse of Central Park, the intricate details on the Art Deco buildings, the swoosh of traffic, blaring sirens and the world's greatest cosmopolitan mix of people and lifestyles all make New York the icon of the sma rt, the cool and the successful.

From the financial frenzy of Wall Street to the cutting edge and creativity in Soho, the intellectual West Side and the sophistication of the Upper East Side, New Yorker's clothes are an integral part of their fast moving life.

For spring/summer 1999, DAKS has created a collection that matches the many moods and characters of New York with the unique blend of superb natural fabrics, simple yet elegant designs, exclusive checks and colours.

A strong city look in cool wool with an element of stretch for ease of wear, comes in a strong shouldered, nipped waist one button pinstripe jacket with an ankle length bias cut skirt.

For a more casual look there are crisp shirts in white pique with double cuffs or in off-white linen with decorative pleated fronts add the appropriate elements of business severity combined with total femininity.

A strong feeling for denim and indigo takes this casual colour from leisure wear to city, in indigo and khaki silk/linen checked tailored jackets.

There's also striped patch pocketed Nehru jacket and waistcoat, all teamed with toning drawstring top silk/linen trousers or long skirt.

Looking very smart, but very cool, DAKS has captured the New York mood, which isn't bad for a company that makes all its clothes in its own factory in Scotland.

DAKS is available at Rackhams in Birmingham.
