I’ve always liked The Only Way is Essex star Bobby Cole Norris. He seems really down-to -earth and interesting. But he has gone up even further in my estimation since I read that his collection of nine unisex t-shirts and the famous Schlong Thongs which there is five of that he and ex-boyfriend fellow Towie star Harry Derbidge wore in Marbella recently entitled, the Sirius Collection supported the Hopefield Animal Sanctuary in Brentwood. I love animals. I always have and I love seeing any help they get towards their welfare and with Bobby’s profile it is sure to help the charity a lot.
“My first line with the Sirius Collection comes from a passion to create really cool and design led pieces that appeal to everyone of all ages. I have been hands on in developing the idea, working with the animal sanctuary and leading the designers. I feel proud to have developed a range that reflects my style and ensures the wearer ‘shines’ standing out from a crowd when wearing them!”
Hopefield Animal Sanctuary offered some of its animals to model the collection when Bobby went in search of a BFF for his adorable terrier Beau, who inspired the collection in the first place. The cutest little thing. Love him.
Hopefileld Managers, David Schlaich and Lianne Angliss said:
“We are so happy to have Bobby on board helping the sanctuary in such a fun way. As a huge animal lover, Bobby is a great advocator for us, and the animals loved modelling for him”.
Sirius means two things in conjunction with the collection as Sirius means the brightest star in the night sky and Bobby wanted to create a collection which could help the wearer stand out in the crowd and the word also means the “Dog Star”.
The Schlong Thongs come in black, white, camo, purple and fuchsia while the t-shirts include many features that represent the charities cause such as a pug wearing glasses and a dickie bow with the words #Pash4Fash below the little pet, a pig in a photoframe wearing sunglasses looking all urban with the words I Woke Up Like This! underneath, the adorable little Yorkshire terrier Beau printed all over one t-shirt, two colourful parrot prints tops and a reptile picture on another top while there was also crown, banana and zebra print tops.
I really like the collection. It’s very unique. You get sick of the same thing been created over and over and again but this collection is a breath of fresh air and the animals are adorable. Been someone who loves animals, I couldn’t stop awwwing at the tops.
The collection will be sold online in aid of the charity which for more than thirty years has been rescuing abused, abandoned and neglected animals. The sanctuary looks after more than 300 animals like dogs, cats, horses, donkeys, cows, pigs, reptiles and many more and is funded completely by donations from the public.
