Since joining the team in September last year, Homes has filled GQ HQ with his devilish Kiwi accent and general fabulousness, the latter showcased in our Zegna fashion story (p150).
TELL US WHAT YOU LOVE MOST ABOUT BEING A FASHION EDITOR.
Working with wonderfully talented people and, of course, the clothes.
WHY THANKS. YOU WERE IN EUROPE FOR THE AW16 SHOWS. ANY FAVOURITES?
Gucci, Rick Owens and Balmain.
AT GQ, WE’RE ABOUT SETTING, NOT FOLLOWING, TRENDS. HOW DO YOU GO ABOUT THAT?
I dissect what I see on both the international and local runways and translate it into something tangible for our audience.
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY WAS THE INSPIRATION BEHIND YOUR SHOOT IN MILAN?
Outgoing Zegna creative director Stefano Pilati’s personal style is quite laid-back and sexy. I love the way he wore the collection and wanted to keep the shoot and styling relaxed and undone to mirror this.
TWO WARDROBE STAPLES TO BUY FOR AUTUMN?
Simple – Givenchy boots and Burberry cashmere trackpants.
AND THREE WARDROBE MUSTHAVES FOR YEAR ROUND?
A Bally suede coat, a relaxed tailored suit by Armani, and a pair of Dolce & Gabbana silk pyjamas, of course.
