a powerful story

Ten years ago, I arrived in Cape Town, having freshly returned from the US to the continent of my birth. With a lot of persistence (and assistance), I was able to build my own network. There’s tremendous power in networks, as the adage indicates, but once you’re in the door you’ve got to consistently prove you deserve a space at the table. I’ve been fortunate to be able to do the same, and for me this issue marks seven and a half years at GQ, and also marks two years since taking over as editor-in-chief. So many things about how we produce content, and even the economics of media brands, has changed – but the one thing that hasn’t is the art of storytelling. Perhaps my favourite description of GQ came from…

the beauty of blend

• NOTHING LASTS, NOTHING’S FINISHED, NOTHING’S PERFECT – that’s the motto of a collection that encourages seeking the beauty in imperfection. Ditching the usual graphics and logos, RHUDE leans toward a minimal aesthetic for a first-time collaboration with PUMA. The PUMA x RHUDE collection will see the drop of four iconic PUMA silhouettes reimagined in designs that are low-key, while still remaining stylish as hell, along with unisex separates to go with the sneakers. Blends make the world more interesting. Tullamore D.E.W. brings together three kinds of Irish whiskey for a blend that’s as wonderfully complex as you are.
