On the third day of London Collections: Men, Superman was in town.
Henry Cavill, who plays the comic superhero in the upcoming “Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice” (Ben Affleck plays the Caped Crusader), was in Mayfair on Sunday for the GQ Style and Dunhill party following its spring show.
“Superman wouldn’t get into a cage fight with just anyone,” he said. “Imagine, you wouldn’t get into a fight with someone if they hit you and you didn’t feel it, barely registered it. Superman wouldn’t even notice; he’s not quick to engage.”
The likes of Dan Stevens, British musicians Labrinth and Tinie Tempah, plus Jack Guinness, Andrew Cooper, Johannes Huebl and Robert Konjic spilled over into the leafy courtyard at the Bourbon House flagship in Mayfair.
In one corner of the store, sipping from a tall flute of British sparkling wine Nyetimber, was a well-known London publicist bemoaning the growing tendency of the men’s style set to delay shows by stopping for street-style photographers.
“Seriously, I saw one get out of his car 500 meters before the entrance to the McQueen show just so he would have to pass in front of the photographers and be shot in whatever crazy get-up he had on,” the woman complained. “I mean, we have a schedule to keep! It’s getting to be worse than the women’s shows.”
Sounds like a problem only Superman could fix.
