His lifelong friend Bono possibly never got the memo (does he ever?). Guggi launched his new sculpture last Wednesday night in London by saying that he always felt he should be "like a small Victorian child - seen but not heard".

Guggi was both seen and heard by a royal-adjacent beau monde in London's Embassy Gardens and, of course, by his other great pal John Rocha. The Irish fashion designer flew over from Dublin to attend the event which saw Irish developer Sean Mulryan unveil Ballymore's latest development in West London.

Channelling his inner small Victorian child, Guggi went on to give a beautiful speech about his dramatic new work, entitled Rice Bowl. About the fragility of life and all that.
