Dylan Jones remarked, “I’m delighted that Luke will now be working across GQ, as well as continuing to edit GQ Style – his ability to speak visually to a wide audience while also showcasing cutting edge creativity and finding the most exciting new talent is a rare combination. I’m also thrilled to be welcoming Teo to the team, who will bring his considerable experience to both print and digital. As the most important luxury men’s title in the country, with fashion at its heart, all these additions to the British GQ fashion team will further reinforce the brand’s position in the market place.” 

Luke Day commented, “I’m honoured to be extending my role within the GQ family as the newly appointed fashion director of GQ. I feel proud to be given this prestigious opportunity at such an exciting time for the magazine and for Condé Nast. I am looking forward to working even more closely with Dylan Jones and his world class GQ team as we continue to lead the way in men’s style.”

Teo van den Broeke added, "GQ is the foremost men's media brand in the world and I am both excited and honoured to join the brilliant British team as Style and Grooming Director. I look forward to a long and illustrious tenure at this prestigious magazine."

Elsewhere on the magazine Matt Kelly, editor of The New European, joins GQ.co.uk as contributing editor. Guto Harri, former BBC chief political correspondent and communications director for Mayor of London Boris Johnson’s administration at London City Hall, and journalist Tanya Gold are also announced as contributing political editors. Matthew D’Ancona remains political editor of the magazine, with Alastair Campbell as chief political interviewer. 2017 has again seen GQ at the forefront of political journalism and these appointments reinforce its position.

Anna Conrad has recently joined the British GQ team as news and features editor for GQ.co.uk. GQ’s online audience has increased by eight per cent year-on-year, with the platform receiving an average of almost three million unique users per month. (Google Analytics Aug-Oct 2017)
