It's not uncommon for a magazine to celebrate a milestone issue with a series of limited-edition covers, but for its upcoming 35th anniversary, i-D decided to go big.
The London-based publication, which was sold to the Vice Media Group in 2012 when its founders Terry and Tricia Jones retired, has focused on its digital presence and video programming in the time since, but the print edition's graphic design and "winking" covers are iconic within the fashion industry. To honor this tradition, the magazine is releasing an unprecedented 18 covers for its anniversary issue, all shot by Alasdair McLellan, who began his career at i-D. Not only are supermodels like Kate Moss, Daria Werbowy, Stella Tennant and Lara Stone honored with their own covers, up-and-comers like Karly Loyce, Adrienne Juliger and Jean Campbell are featured as well, further proving the magazine's commitment to discovering and celebrating new talent within the industry.
Inside the issue, readers will find interviews with i-D's most loyal contributors — stylists, photographers, editors, artists and more — who have helped to shape the magazine during its history. Plus, it tapped 11 designers, including Karl Lagerfeld, Phoebe Philo, Riccardo Tisci and Alexander Wang, to create bespoke limited-edition covers that will be available at Dover Street Market in London and other select boutiques.
