Never one to do anything by halves, i-D magazine is feting its 35th birthday with a grand total of 18 covers, featuring the most recognisable of supermodels alongside some rising stars of fashion, music, art and film. What’s more, all 18 were shot by the inimitable Alasdair McLellan, who took every image in the issue.
“It was our great pleasure to work with British photographer Alasdair McLellan,” the magazine explains, “a much loved friend of i-D‘s, who also started his career at the magazine… Al’s dedication, determination and outstanding talent for capturing the natural beauty in his subjects has ensured this issue is a true collector’s edition.
“There is something for everyone, from i-D born and bred supermodels Kate Moss, Stella Tennant, Jourdan Dunn, Lara Stone and Freja Beha, to hot new faces Anna Ewers, Binx and Natalie Westling, actors Ezra Miller and Ellar Coltrane, pop star Grimes, to the one and only Amanda Harlech and John Waters, who inspired this season’s Miu Miu collection.”
There will also be a series of 11 limited edition covers by designers including Karl Lagerfeld, Raf Simons, Phoebe Philo and Vivienne Westwood among others, making this perhaps the most collectible issue we’ve ever seen. Phew!
