Join us Wednesday September 8th at Dover Street Market New York to celebrate the release of i-D Magazine’s Fall 2021 issue with free ice cream outside the Store from 4:00pm until supplies last.
The Fall 2021 issue of i-D is a celebration of our emergence back into real life, as the Covid pandemic recedes. It’s an issue about fashion and fantasy and dreaming and hope. What “in real life” represents to us is getting back to what we love. People. Human connection. Collaboration. Community. Uplifting each other and working together.
Fronted by Billie Eilish, shot on location by Glen Luchford at the Irwindale Speedway and in the desert outside Los Angeles, and interviewed by Stormzy, Billie opens up about her new record, her creativity, mental health, growing up and living in the spotlight.
Alongside her cover interview, i-D will be debuting a special merch collaboration with Billie.
The issue also looks to the debut collection of Pieter Muller at Alaia, stepping out from behind the scenes to take over one fashion’s most treasured legacies, and celebrates the reemergence of Marc Jacobs who returned to the catwalk after a brief hiatus this summer, as did Hood By Air, who staged a secret show in London for friends and announced their return to fashion.
It profiles Bianca Saunders, a young British designer redefining masculinity and menswear and Black British experience. We look to the DIY creativity of the streets and the skate scene, and young untrained kids making fashion for themselves and their friends, while Jawara continues to define and reimagine beauty ideals within the pages of the magazine, with his second project as Senior Beauty Editor, created with Yann Turchi and Aurore Gibrien, in a celebration of the diversity of Black beauty.
Artist Nick Waplington has created a new project, revisiting old unseen images of Los Angeles, captured in 1995 and 1996, when the city was stuck between the Rodney King riots and coming technological revolution, and we interview Kristen McMenamy, fashion icon and inspiration about her life and career.
And featuring fashion photography contributions from the likes of Oliver Hadlee Pearch, Alasdair McLellan, Theo Sion, Deirdre Lewis and Clara Balzary, more than anything this is an issue about the potential and beauty of fashion, the power of dreaming, and the role of fashion in our post-pandemic lives.
i-D will be launching its next print issue from the 8th September digitally.
