BRAD HOMES

GQ (Australia) - - INSIDE -

FASH­ION EDITOR

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.
