Following an exhausting day's filming and interviewing in Broadway (for a film on Gordon Russell) we drove to Sir Roy Strong's beautiful home and garden near Hereford. Unfortunately it was raining so we could not film in the garden as hoped, but set up in the conservatory as the next best thing.
Reading Sir Roy's diaries made me realise how fascinated by clothes and appearance the man is - still very sprightly and slim, the dark hair has given way to a silver slightly punk look and the iconic glasses have been replaced by contact lenses but the deep dark puppy dog eyes remain. A diamond earring twinkles, a beautiful crisp white shirt, casual denims, white trainers. Very cool.
And the mercurial man was charming, produced some very thoughtful insights about the inner Patrick, whilst my regular request for a succinct one sentence description produced a fabulous image - you'll have to wait for the DVD to find out!
