Jamaica gets its rightful due in the June 2018 issue of British Vogue in a story by Tim Walker and Kate Phelan that features Binx Walton alongside some of the island nation’s colorful citizenry. Much of Jamaica’s recent history takes place under British colonial rule, the yoke of which it finally cast off in 1962. It is the third most populous Anglophone country in the Western Hemisphere behind United States and Canada to the north. The island embraced emancipation from the shackles of slavery a full quarter century before the United States, which is to say a strong sense of freedom of spirit lives in the people of Jamaica to this day. That feeling is very much present in this story “Jamaican Rhapsody,” which was borne of a journey taken by Phelan and Walker earlier this year. Binx for her part brings life to the page (pictured) in which she is shown smiling brightly wearing a mohair dress by Jil Sander. Jamaica is always a good time and this story is no exception.
