ushered back into the street on the promise we wouldn’t say, “wow”, we were led across the road to where nick took up position in view of the spectacular 24ft crystal encrusted pegasus statue (damien hirst’s largest scale artwork in london), which almost explodes from @theofficialselfridges’ newly opened @brasserieoflight. nick’s done this before, i think. he told us he enjoys his job, but i get the impression he also takes pride in his work. thank you, nick, for being an utter gent.

whilst nick did agree to me taking his picture in the end, he didn’t appear overly comfortable with my ‘phone up in his face. so i hope you’ll forgive me this more alternative take on a portrait because i’ve tried to respect nick’s personal space when putting this series together.

i thought we were in for a rollocking when this burly doorman approached @swendeluk and me snapping pics through @theofficialselfridges’ window. in actuality he suggested we take his photo reflected in one of the display mirrors, which wasn’t a bad idea, but he didn’t mean it. what he really wanted was to show us the teeny japanese speakeasy pop-up in store. his selfridges-yellow name badge announced him as ‘nick’
@leinstadeissa qui prend la pose ! Meilleur coach de la #leaderscup sans aucun débat.
Des tactiques hors du commun, quelle prouesse, du génie 😂. « On oublie pas les gars, on tacle à la gorge directement ! »
