i-D Magazine Celebrates 30 Years

i-D is the iconic British publication dedicated to all things rad-centric in the fashion, music, art and youth culture. It was founded by designer and former Vogue art director Terry Jones in 1980, making this year the 30th anniversary of it's existence.

i-D is known for its innovative photography and typography, and over the years established a reputation as a training ground for fresh talent. Photographers Chris Dowling, Wolfgang Tillmans, Juergen Teller, Terry Richardson and Ellen von Unwerth, Kayt Jones have produced work for the magazine.

 

With this month marking the benchmark year, past, present and future stars become legends under the umbrella of THEN, NOW and NEXT. From rapstars to trapstars, supers to trannies, i-D conducted a 3-week celebratory photoshoot at Somerset House, collaborating with Nick Knight, to document the turn of the decade. From cover to cover, the portraits will run throughout the THEN Pre-Fall issue. Almost 200 people took part in the breathtaking project, including The xx, Phoebe Philo, Sir Paul Smith, Florence Welch, Vivienne Westwood, Lara Stone, Pink and Gareth Pugh. Shot entirely in black and white this will be a collectors issue of the future and an important marker in time, made even more spectacular with three cover stars; Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Lady Gaga.

 

The 3 issues will be out on August 12 (THEN), September 23 (NOW) and November 11 (NEXT). Check out a sneak peek at the covers below.

Miike Snow Touches All Our Senses at Music Hall of Williamsburg

I'm almost embarrassed to admit that this past Friday was the first time I had caught Miike Snow in a live setting. Sure there's been many an opportunity as they've passed through NYC countless times, yet it always seemed as if they were playing on a night when I had other obligations. Such again was the case on March 26, however, there was no chance I'd skip this fantastic opportunity.

The first and most impressive aspect you'll notice about a Miike Snow show is that its's truly a treat for all the senses. Well, maybe not the sense of taste, but every other perception and mentality is pretty well covered. 


Lights, masks and smoke add a dynamic visual quality to your sight. The touch and smell of a crowd, rabid with fandom goes above and beyond anything I've experienced in a closed venue like Music Hall of Williamsburg this year. And the sound, well, c'mon...saying it was anything less than spot-on perfection is doing the band a great injustice.


Championing the crowd through near sing-a-longs of each of their album cuts, Andrew and his mates impressed whether behind keys, wielding a mighty guitar or simply leading a chorus of Black and Blue. Known hits and new tunes rounded out a great night of music, which began with Spanish lads, Delorean, warming up the crowd with their exacting dose of indie pop-rock. (full set of pictures from the show can be found here)


So maybe I lied...because that 5th and final sense was present. You can totally taste the passion and drive that both of these magnificent acts have. Eat it up.
