You know it’s a slow telly night when you’re forced to switch off your TV and do something interesting instead. Then go and switch your TV back on and watch Ozwald Boateng: Why Style Matters on BBC4.
But before we start, we would just like to say we think BBC4 is magnificent. If Rupert Murdoch ever gets his way the whole of Her Majesty’s BBC Emporium would be stripped of its funding and turned into one long advertorial for Australia’s Next Top Model (you know, the one presented by his daughter-in-law, who is either really stupid and can’t understand basic instructions, or is really clever because the whole ‘wrong winner-gate’ is the most press that show has ever had).
Now don’t get us wrong. Ozwald Boateng. The boy does know how to dress and he’s not afraid of colour, though his London Fasion Week show (in a cinema, people. In a cinema!) was attended by Piers Morgan. All that work just for a bloat that speaks to turn up.
But his tellyboxshow, Ozwald Boateng: Why Style Matters, well. Apart from the Blair Witch camera work (really? They’re still doing that?) and the general swagger of it all, we were relieved to find out that, after all these years, colour is a ‘spiritual thing’.
Oh good. Now we’ve sorted that out, can we talk about why you’re such a knob?
ps. We realise many/most/all of you probably didn’t watch this show. And now you’ve read this, you never have to. Call it our gift to you.
