Designer Theo Fennell Has Written a Memoir
“I Fear for This Boy” takes readers through the ups and downs of his business and is available for pre-order now.
They are, essentially, little works of art. (See: the Stonehenge ring he made for the 2020 Summer Solstice, and his Jack the Ripper letter opener.)
Now, the jewelry and silverware designer has funneled his creativity into another art form well-known to the members of his immediate family—writing—and will be releasing a memoir this summer.
“I Fear for This Boy: Some Chapters of Accidents” is described as a “comic classic” that takes readers through the failures Fennell has endured as a business owner, describing them with “panache and honesty.”
Fennell was born in Moascar, Egypt, to an army family, and lived all over the world as a young boy.
He attended boarding school from the age of 5 and, later, went to the Byam Shaw School of Art in London.
He’s been designing since the mid-1970s and opened a store on London’s Fulham Road in 1982, though he’ll be relocating his flagship soon due to rising rents, Professional Jeweller reported.
“I Fear for This Boy” is 288 pages. It is available for pre-order now in hardback ($31.50) or e-book form ($24.50).
Fennell, 70, resides in London with his wife, Louise, a screenwriter and author of “Dead Rich” and “Fame Game.”
The couple has two daughters, fashion designer Coco Fennell and actor, writer, and director Emerald Fennell.
Emerald played Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall in “The Crown” and wrote and directed the 2020 movie “Promising Young Woman,” winning the Oscar for Best Original Screenplay.
