editor’s letter

Blazoned across the cover…of Vogue’s April issue is a word I have been thinking about a lot recently: joy. Given the state of the world, even to write it down feels slightly daring. However, as basic human needs go, in recent times we have all had an insight into the importance of joy, and why it should never be taken for granted. Of course, when life gets tough, joy can too easily be lost, and life has certainly been tough of late. That said, what I find almost equally worrying, and certainly more insidious, is how in dark days the pursuit of happiness is seen as somehow inappropriate. I couldn’t disagree more – such perspectives are more than a little shortsighted. For many people, long before this pandemic began, the urge to…

The model, who came to fame as the wildly sexy, mischievous beauty wearing slithery silk-jersey cutaway dresses and hipster miniskirts in the Gucci by Tom Ford era, recently walked the runway for Hermès in camel trousers and a cashmere sweater – same dagger cheekbones, but the years have made her even more striking. “Back then, I was paid to be pretty and was more concerned with what people thought of me.

joy yamusangie

As a child, artist and illustrator Joy Yamusangie was “always drawing – I would take half the printer paper,” the 27-year-old Londoner laughs. Those early naturalist doodles of faces would develop into bold, jazzy abstracts exploring race, religion, sexuality and gender (Yamusangie uses the pronouns they/them) inspired by colourful trips to visit family in the Democratic Republic of the Congo’s capital, Kinshasa. (“Even my grandma’s house is bright pink with a blue hallway.”) After graduating in illustration from the University of Portsmouth, they teamed up with black artists over Instagram to put on DIY exhibitions, which led to a huge Tate commission to design a “whole massive wall” along Southbank Centre in 2018. “People have limited ideas of what illustration is,” Yamusangie says. “I’ve made ceramics, I’ve made films –…
