As all three readers of this blog will know, I own a replica Apollo 11 space suit.

Up until this year, London Fashion Week has set up camp in the square outside our office at Somerset House.

The square fills with the most glorious peacocks, showing their plumage to the assembled paparazzi.

I occasionally commute to work in my suit.

Just before I arrived, I ‘accessorised’ my suit with a scarf.
