Elton John Introduces Zachary: Saviour Of The Dressing Gown Industry
ELTON John is now ready to showcase his son on the telly. John, David Furnish and son Zachary Levon Furnish-John-Dwight-Luther-Blissett-Junior are dressed in dressing gowns before Barbara Walters, the US broadcaster.
Sir Elton (striped silk) and Furnish (white towelling embroidered with his name – an aide de memoir to match the tattoo of Zachary’s name he now bears on his arm. There is no obvious tattoo helping Furnish to recall who John is, but we advise him to buy a programme for the singer’s current world tour and a ticket for this September when Sir Elton begins a residency at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas that will run into 2014.)
Zach has, famously, two dads (Dave and Elts produced a sperm shake and left the rest to magick) and two mums (one lent the egg, the other the womb).
Will four parents catch on? We’re not sure, but if the look becomes what the cool kids are wearing, the dressing gown industry is heading for boom times…
