The May 2014 issue of British Vogue includes a supplement produced in association with H&M that is every bit as engrossing as the month’s marquee act, which is due in no small part to its cover star Binx. Readers could certainly be forgiven for thinking the portrait of Binx by Rory Payne overlaid atop arguably the five most important sequence of letters in fashion publishing was in fact no supplement at all. The corresponding story surveys a handful of evening looks from H&M, which look positively breathtaking worn by Binx. “I really like Michèle Lamy, not that I would necessarily dress like her, but what she wears is completely different,” explains Binx when asked by British Vogue’s Skye-Victoria Sansome to cite a style hero. “I also like Tyler, The Creator just because what he wears is so random.” The range of style inspirations from the wife and muse of Rick Owens to the iconoclastic Odd Future founder does not only suggest a great fashion mind, but one with real heart. Binx is the genuine article, which this impressive feature in that latest British Vogue evidences so very well.
