Shoe designer christian louboutin; footballer and social media wit Peter Crouch; novelist and icon of the new feminism Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie. Where else could one hope to find these people under the same roof at the same time other than at the Esquire Townhouse? In October, our annual four-day pop-up shindig celebrated its third and best year yet, in association with Breitling. Christian and Peter and Chimamanda are all leaders in their fields, but those fields are quite distinct. I can’t be certain (I somehow neglected to ask her) but I’m guessing that Chimamanda has not — not yet! — been to the bet365 Stadium to see Peter turn out for Stoke City. Nor, for that matter, can I say with confidence that Peter has got around to reading Half of a Yellow Sun, Chimamanda’s searing novel of love, betrayal, and the Biafran War of the late Sixties. Then again, the former England striker seems to exist to undermine preconceptions about the supposed unsophistication of professional footballers, so there’s a chance he might have read it; it’s more likely, frankly, that he’s read her than that she’s read him, though she might find herself quietly tickled by his entertaining memoir, How to be a Footballer.
