Sir Philip Green stands out on his leopard-print boat
His Topshop stores are awash with leopard print designs season in and season out.
So it is little surprise that Sir Philip Green favours the decidedly eye-catching motif for his boat.
The retail mogul was pictured boarding his speedboat ‘Lion Cub’ in Monaco yesterday en route to his super yacht ‘Lionheart’.
The spotty design is a little strange given the vessel’s name, but nevertheless the 60-year-old had no trouble standing out as he zoomed through the water.
Green boarded his runabout alone yesterday with three immaculately-dressed crewmembers on hand to carry his belongings and drive the boat.
Looking relaxed, the Topshop owner reclined in a seat and chatted on his phone.
Sir Philip was not joined by daughter Chloe, who is busily preparing for her shoe collection, CJG, launch this week.
Chloe is unlikely to have been that impressed by her father’s decidedly flashy boat anyway, given her tendency to travel by private jet.
The former Made In Chelsea star said in an interview last week that although she enjoys her A-list flights, she is also happy to travel on down to earth commercial airlines.
Speaking to Elle magazine, Chloe said: ‘At no point in my life have I ever taken anything for granted.
‘I’m not saying to my dad, “Because we have a jet can I borrow it and fly down to France?”. If my dad says, “Would you like the plane?” then I’ll say, “Sure, if you don’t mind.” But if not, BA is fine.’
