What did you work on for this issue, and what makes you feel positive right now? Josh Hight PHOTOGRAPHER ‘I worked on the portfolio cover story celebrating incredibly strong and talented people living with HIV, as well as advocates pushing the dialogue forward to educate people that living with HIV isn’t a death sentence. Get tested! What makes me feel positive right now is walking with my dog on the South Downs.’ Paul Flynn WRITER ‘I helped assemble the HIV/AIDS portfolio, profiling Ana Matronic, Mike Christie and Mykki Blanco. I also had the honour of eavesdropping on the conversation between Matthew Lopez and Instagram’s The AIDS Memorial. At the time of writing, sinking a pint of cold, fizzy tap lager in a sunny beer garden is the height of personal positivity.’ Jamal Jordan WRITER ‘I spoke with Lil Nas…

editor’s letter

Right now, your best quality may be your positivity. There’s no question – it rubs off on everyone around you. When I first began to think of themes for this issue and what mindset we would be in by summer 2021, I could only hope that a bright new future with a positive outlook would be blooming. I think I was right. It’s been a time to reflect and reevaluate what’s important; to define our new core values. This issue is particularly poignant for me as it marks my ten-year anniversary of joining GQ Style. It’s not often I indulge in recollections of past issues, but I’m very proud of the constant evolution of the publication, and that is something to behold. The past ten years have been rather like the…

Let your imagination take flight this summer with a series of ‘cosmic’ pop-up stores in cities around the world, unveiling Dior’s ‘hyperreal’ Fall 2021 menswear collection designed by Kim Jones in collaboration with American artist Kenny Scharf. This May, the Selfridges Corner Shop in London is hosting an immersive experience where characters from Scharf’s universe (inspired by cartoons, surrealism and sci-fi) are brought to life amidst décor that references the collection’s futuristic virtual catwalk presentation. Whether you go for pieces featuring Scharf’s vibrant motifs in jacquards and subtle seed-stitch embroidery by Chinese artisans – such as these ‘JoJo’-print sneakers in technical fabric – or a tailored jacket or coat adorned with moiré silk, one thing’s for sure – you’ll look like a work of art.…

When it comes to collaborations between legends of the punk era, it’s hard to imagine one more impressive and authentic than this. For her SS21 collection, original King’s Road design disrupter Vivienne Westwood has teamed up with fellow new-wave icon Chrissie Hynde, whose paintings are used as hero prints across the collection, with proceeds going to the artist and Pretenders musician’s chosen charity. This bold statement shirt in clashing pop-art shades features the ‘One Fun September’ print, taken from Hynde’s limited-edition painting of the same name, and is the perfect piece for playful warm-weather styling. So, if you’ve got brass in pocket, why wait until September? One Fun Summer starts right here.…

If you like your watches precise and your cars fast, this is the collaboration for you. To celebrate the 60th anniversary of the iconic Jaguar E-Type, luxury British watch brand Bremont has released a limited-edition box set featuring a chronograph (60 in green and 60 in grey) and a rally timer. With a black dial that nods to the design of the E-Type’s gauges, bezel and strap colours that match the E-Type 60 Edition’s Pantone shades, a hardened stainless steel case, treated steel hands and a 22mm leather strap, the timepiece is as glamorous as the car that inspired it. And here’s something to really make your engine purr: every box set comes with a unique driving experience hosted by Jaguar Classic – so you can slip on your watch,…

Sportswear and fashion go hand in hand, and no brand has played a bigger part in joining the two than FILA. Now, to celebrate the brand’s heritage, comes the 110th Anniversary collection, curated by stylist and creative director Katie Grand, who has selected pieces from the archive and redesigned them with a contemporary twist, turning her expert eye on everything from golf blousons and knits to bobsleigh catsuits, basketball tops and shorts, aerobics gear and mountain puffers. The result is a collection that prizes both the vintage appeal of the pieces and the modernity of their reimagining. With the iconic FILA logo (designed in 1973) front and centre throughout, and a neat palette of black, white, red and navy, it’s a slam dunk for your summer wardrobe.…
