Nigel has been a little remiss in not WhatsApping that many pictures of the designer window displays on 5th Avenue. Darrell had hoped, that via said pictures, he might spot a trend or two before it hit Evesham or perhaps something that even Hugh, his best friend and mentor hadn’t had a chance to wear yet! What is he like?
But, as I explained to Darrell, you can take the boy out of Poundland, but, you can’t take Poundland out of the boy ….. all the glitter and pazzaz of Versace, Prada and Armani would most probably just go way over the little fella’s head.
However, I may have done Nigel a small injustice, as the display in the Dolce and Gabbana window did in fact catch Nigel’s eye, he was quite taken with an evening suit with silver and black sequin detail on the lapels, but had heeded my words before he’d left, that if something in a shop window doesn’t have a price tag on you can safely assume you can’t afford it.
He also thought Darrell ( …….and Hugh) might perhaps suit one or two choice items from the Dolce and Gabbana Sacred Heart and Poker Card range, but wisely used his phone data to check on the prices ……… and found that, for Darrell at least, £1,100 for a sweatshirt was a little on the exorbitant side.
He did however WhatsApp a picture to Darrell, saying that with all Darrell’s artistic and creative flair he could just as easily produce a similar sort of thing with a pack of fabric pens, flat backed gems, a few embroidered appliques like they have on the market and a glue gun! I left Darrell to wrestle with that particular nugget!
