Sailing has played a significant role in the shaping of the modern world. Never forget that when a Genoese explorer famously miscalculated his journey to India over 500 years ago he did so aboard a small fleet of carracks. These days sailing is still important, albeit in more symbolic terms as is the case in the August 2016 issue of Vogue Japan in a story featuring Binx photographed by Emma Summerton and styled by Giovanna Battaglia. The nautical theme runs deep in this story titled “The Sea Whispers” and fittingly opens with Binx (pictured) wearing a sailor cap whilst reclining on a vinyl covered sofa. The story really gets cruising with every turn of the page and especially so with Binx at the helm.
