FRANKIE GOES TO HOLLYWOOD… and Holly goes shopping! Shopping for clothes with his pal, Paul. And where do they go? Not M&S that’s for sure! S&M? — that’s more like it. Rubberwear of distinction from EXPECTATIONS, Hoxton Square N1, the gentleman’s outfitters! Next stop P W FORTE, Kings Road SW3, for yet more layers of latex. Then COBRA, of Portobello Green W11, off the peg or made to measure. Paul wants to smarten up, so it’s down to WOODHOUSE, Oxford Street, for his Hugo Boss black linen suit. Up in Bond Street, Holly’s got his nose pressed up to GIANNI VERSACE’s window. He wants that jacket. It costs £825, though. We get it for him anyway!

The Frankie Goes To Hollywood Christmas party organised by Graham K and snapped, happy, by Groovy Paully Cox!
