Review: Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen: Cracking China

Interior decorator Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen showed himself as nothing other than predictable, arrogant and ridiculous in an hour long BBC Two documentary

 

On Monday night, the interior designer Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen appeared in a documentary. The result was unsurprising and that this narcissistic fool showed himself to be annoying and ridiculous could have been easily predicted.

BBC Two’s Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen: Cracking China featured the camper than camp designer declaring: “I am the brand, I am the product” and little else. Clad in tasteless suits and a beard worthy of Charles I, Llewelyn-Bowen – who last came to public attention when a tacky Christmas attraction he designed closed after being branded a “rip-off” in December 2014 – was filmed visiting China and Mexico attempting to sell his pompously named House of Lawrence brand to department stores. He patronised everyone whose paths he crossed.

 

At a meeting with a distributor, Llewelyn-Bowen presented a framed photo of himself; in Mexico, he turned up with his products in a bin liner and in all seriousness announced: “They’ll just think I’m a really chic Santa”. Such lines as: “It’s really important to evolve your mojo as you go on – otherwise you end up ossified, like Valentino’s hair – which is almost museum-quality exhibit A” were the staple and all in all an hour of this gaudy nonsense was simply too much.

 

The lesson from this programme, however, was simple: Laurence Llewelyn-Bowen and his tat have has little a place in China and Mexico as they do in Britain. It is time that this bogus Brit simply gave up.

    1. Matthew, Laurence was a friend when I had my house in Gloucestershire. He and his wife were wonderful and far from narcissistic. He was very well grounded. Perhaps his TV persona comes across in a bad way. Xx

      • Do watch the show on iPlayer. His behaviour with the bin bag and answering phones during meetings was quite something else. He may be perfectly nice in reality but he certainly doesn’t do himself any favours in front of the camera.
