editor’s letter

Welcome to the 15-year anniversary issue of GQ Style. A moment of celebration that I never thought would align with a year with so much polarity in the world. 2020 could be described as an on-going existential crisis; bewildering, exasperating, infuriating. The most positive change that can come from this year is that we, as a global community, become more engaged, stop blindly following and instead rise up as individuals and take personal responsibility. But with so much heaviness in the world, this celebratory issue of GQ Style isn’t looking back, it’s championing optimism and change. It’s a call to action! 2020 may be a year some might want to forget, but it has also made us confront a lot of issues we’ve avoided for so long, and which needed to be…

Blackie. Paki. Nigger. Half breed. Coloured. All words that most people of colour have been called at some point in their lives. These words are not outlawed. They walk with the same freedom as hello, good morning and goodnight. My first memory of being subjected to this abuse was as a seven-year-old, when visiting my mum’s family in the north of England. I was chased by a group of boys, and stones were thrown at me. This was followed by an altercation on holiday at Butlin’s in Skegness. While exploring the resort, I was followed by two boys who told me that I was a dirty nigger. My mother was always there to support me through these times, sometimes in subtle ways. She introduced me to the work of an artist named…

young, fresh & new

Marvin Desroc For Martinique-born, Paris-raised designer Marvin Desroc, infusing his designs with his identity and heritage means everything. ‘To share your story and put a bit of yourself into your work is the most gratifying thing ever, especially when others share similar experiences too,’ he muses. Desroc made his debut at Central Saint Martins’ MA graduate show last year, and his slinky offerings – think hosiery-inspired tops with ruffled peplum details, knee-high lace socks and leather trousers that balloon into giant bows at the crotch – explore the rarely exhibited sensual side of Black masculinity. ‘That’s the problem when it comes to Black bodies,’ he asserts. ‘We are often portrayed in a very animalistic way, or raw and tougher looking. I want to appeal to anyone who likes to dress up…

poetic justice

It was when his first daughter was born that Julian Knox had his personal moment of reckoning. The London-based poet, artist and man behind the alias Julianknxx was working for a luxury paint brand at the time. ‘That was the turning point,’ he says. ‘I had to ask myself, what legacy do I want to leave behind? It made me realise that I was tired of being silenced.’ Hailing from Sierra Leone, Julian left his country at the age of nine, during the civil war. He grew up in London and his daughter’s birth gave him the momentum to do what he is now celebrated for – write poems that he performs and turns into short films, telling stories of his heritage. ‘You don’t hear much of Sierra Leonean stories,’ he says.…
