In the last few months since I started to dedicate myself to my obsession with fashion and style, I have started frequenting a favorite small newstand on Castro and Market that sells the best international fashion publications such as Numéro, European Elle and Vogue, Paper, and my current obsession, London, England’s ow
n i-D Magazine. What kept me buying this $13.00 magazine everytime is that it takes me deeper than just fashion. It dedicates itself to music, photography, art, street culture, and nostalgia.
A couple favorite i-D magazine covers:
Gemma Ward Sept. 2007
(Sidenote: What happened to Gemma? Her supermodel run was short but sweet).
Joan Smalls’ Come Together spread November 2013.
The Straight Ups
In the 1980s, i-D magazine was the original magazine to feature “straight ups”, which were pictures of British punks and street style kids against a plain white wall showing their head-to-toe style. There would be features of these fashion kids to get a background of their style inspiration. That set the precedent for other magazines, and even blogs and Instagram today.
I am a huge British fashion junkie, so I was excited to see some of the Autumn/Winter 2014 collections by British Designers:
Topshop Unique had one of the best shows in London!
Kenzo brought it per normal
