British Invasion: i-D magazine

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).

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:
