Oh wait, fashion students? Actually, that's probably quite alarming. On their homepage at the moment there's a lime green catsuit, rows of sequins and some silver biker boots. Still, lime green cat suits aren't a million miles away from neon vests....
But, we jest. Of course, the students have been given a strict functional brief and advised on suitable fabrics for active duty and given that the entire police uniform including handcuff pouch, velcro name tag and epaulettes costs just £765 + VAT we doubt that radical changes will be forthcoming from the up and coming fashionistas. Not on the official proposals*, anyway.
The final designs will be presented in September this year.
*London College of Fashion students are welcome to send in their more outlandish interpretations of appropriate policing wear to londonist-at-gmail-dot-com.
