British GQ, has officially unveiled the cover and we are absolutely loving it.

“Skepta and Naomi Campbell – close friends, cultural icons, and powerful voices at a time of socio-political tumult – met for the first time in November 2016, at the British Fashion Awards at the Royal Albert Hall. Alongside Vogue Editor Edward Enninful, Skepta honoured Willow and Jaden Smith as New Fashion Icons, while Campbell presented designer Sarah Burton, from Alexander McQueen, with the Best British Brand Award.
Introduced by Enninful, himself a longtime friend and collaborator of Campbell’s, the pair took Polaroids with Kate Moss before going on to the after-party together. That night Skepta lost his phone, although Campbell still has the photo. A series of Instagram images with love heart emojis chronicle the friendship that blossomed, which, this year, took a professional turn. For the launch of Skepta’s new underwear line as part of his MAINS collection, he asked Campbell to collaborate.”
