In late February, deep in the throes of Fashion Month, i-D unveiled five covers of its Spring 2020 edition, dubbed The Icons and Idols Issue, one of which features Binx Walton photographed by Oliver Hadlee Pearch. If the cover and corresponding story styled by Carlos Nazario felt refreshing at the time, a welcome respite to the cavalcade prêt-à-porter coverage, then weeks later it feels all the more so. Photographed in Jamaica, the story chronicles a moment in time with Binx and her coterie of friends that include Next Management’s Anok Yai and Selena Forrest as well as Paloma Elsesser and  Adesuwa Aighewi. It’s an intimate story that unfolds with a swagger, a bonafide confidence, the likes of which cannot be manufactured. Put another way, this is authenticity without every having to declare itself. This is just what Binx does.
