CHARLIE

Excuse me you lot, my name is Charlie Big Potatoes and I am, hem hem, an entrepreneur. Which means I collect things. Some of the things I have collected include Moncur the Monkey and Chocolate Ted, I shall tell you more of them by the by, for the moment it is enough to know that I own everything that belongs to them or, for that matter, anything that will ever belong to them. They appear in a cartoon in The Leither Magazine called Animals of the World in Danger or, for my South American ‘associates’, los Animales en Peligro, for which yours truly receives a 100% agents fee, and that’s the kinda sugar Charlie likes. So you can see I am the Don King of the soft toy world. I’m also quite the figure in the fashion world and can often as not be found strolling down the Bois de Boulogne with an independent heir (usually one of the Saudi prince’s). In this picture I am wearing a light-emitting diode corset (for, hem, men, you understand) by Hussein Chalayan, vintage uggs and mittens by Balmain and a bull accessory by Hermes. I think you’ll agree I cut quite the dash? Anyway enough of me for the mo, next time I’m on ‘air’ – what do you mean I’m not on air? – I’ll introduce you to that buffoon Moncur the Monkey.
