The new issue of I-D is led by a Raf Simons special, as he announces the closure of his namesake label after twenty seven years. Shot partly backstage at his final show in London in October by Nick Waplington, and also by Mario Sorrenti in New York, featuring a range of industry legends and new faces, and the boundary-breaking designer in conversation with Alaia’s Pieter Muller and Bottega Veneta’s Matthieu Blazy, two designers who he has nurtured throughout their careers.
Elsewhere there' a focus on the UK’s new rap icon Headie One, shot by Bolade Banjo, on location in Bond Street and Broadwater Farm, in conversation with Skepta, fellow Tottenham-born star, on the changing world of rap music in the UK.
There's also a look to those who will be defining the future, with Lily Rose Depp shot by Karim Sadli, ahead of her leading role in The Idol, and to the fashion brand’s building communities around their creativity, whether that’s the queer minimalism of A--Company or the riotous London spirit of Chopova Lowena.
Six covers to choose from - featuring SELENA FORREST, HEADIE ONE, JULIA NOBIS, KAIA GERBER, KRISTEN MCMENAMY & LILY ROSE DEPP
Founded in 1980 ID is rightly still considered the vanguard of fashion. Poised firmly on an original, agitative platform. Create don't imitate.
