    kind of reminds me of Leo DiCaprio. I could see this on an older gentleman or lady. Pretty timeless and age appropriate (at any age) in most settings.

    i'm a fan of multiple necklaces, but i think they look best when they're of similar length and inter-weaved.

    the embodiment of confused youth, integrating icons in fashion while ignoring their inherent contradiction: cross, gun, hindu hand.

    sometimes the abstraction of symbolic meaning towards non-meaning in fashion can become offensive.

    I like the jacket – that It is almost, barely too small perhaps – he just had a growth spurt – the necklaces seem like charms to ward off evil and keep him safe. I hope they work.

    His look is on point. small blazer, crew neck T, Dark jeans.
    The necklaces are hot (many kids have a 50/50 view of religion and protect) cool rings, and I think I see a pocket sq peeking out of his jacket pocket. The hair pulls it all together.
    Young, Gifted and Cool.
    Androgyny is wear a lot of young super fashionable men start.

    Very well done. I just think it's amusing that any look consisting of short hair, a blazer, t-shirt and jeans can ever be called androgynous when historically all are decidedly part of a man's uniform. It would be androgynous if he was a girl, but as it is I see a well-dressed, confident young man with perhaps an unusual taste for jewelry.

    To PoppyScott:
    "I love the lowest necklace. On my own search for one."

    Try some places that sell "Judaica" stuff – they usually have plenty to choose from, or Jew jewellery stores… hope London has at least one.

    i wouldn't wear Cross and Hamsa(hand pendant) together… – too conflicting to each other, despite the fact that Jesus was born Jew!

    For some, being cool is a learned art. For others, it is a natural gift. It would be an interesting exercise indeed, were it possible, to see what this boy will be like as a young man in about 10 years. That he is already able to do so much with relatively little is commendable. By the way, am I the only one who noticed that he has a pistol dangling around his neck between the two crosses? If this is intentional, then surely his sense of irony is demonstrative of an uncommon maturity, or at the least, a keen sense of how to manipulate symbols for maximum effect. That, or as my British relatives would more likely say, "Too clever by half."

    the rings look like women's jewellery, the necklace shapes should be similar length/intertwined and the fit/shilouette of the blazer is really quite off putting

    the choice of necklace is unfortunate. what looks to be a cross, a gun and a hand of fatima? i guess he can be forgiven at his age in not knowing what direction to choose. also, the proper age to wear topman clothes.

    I was wondering if anyone might think that, rather than him just randomly throwing on these necklaces that are bothering people so, perhaps he was trying to make a statement with them? As in 'here, start at top and read down'. And what a statement that is, yes?

    He is obviously very smart, very beautiful, and very willing to push boundaries and make strong statements.

    Although he's cute, I'm not really a fan of the fashion. It's like he tried to recreate the vintage Mod look using clothes from H&M – with his single perfectly placed badge and his evenly distributed necklaces. For the type of look he's going for, I think something just that little bit more disheveled and haphazard would have been good.

He's probably under 16, which means he's just experimenting and copying is part of that, and part of being young. And I bet we all remember what it was like to try to dress well on a saturday job budget!

    Very boy/girl stylish. Bowie for the next generation. Loads of this look in London at the minute for boys/girls and those who are generally lithe enough to carry it off. Those of us who are more curvy have to combine the ultra masculine stylised tailoring with ultra feminine boho notes. Another wave of the New Romantic in any case.

    I wish I had had that kind of confidence to pull something like this off when I was that age. Hell, I wish I had it today.
