i-D - Issue Summer 2020
i-D has built its reputation on being a consistent source of inspiration in fashion culture. It began as a fanzine dedicated to the street style of punk-era London in 1980, and quickly earned its position at the vanguard of fashion and style. i-D has come a long way since its pre-digital, cut-and-paste days and has developed into a glossy magazine that documents fashion and contemporary culture, and has broken ground defining it too.
For his i-D cover interview, cultural pioneer Pharrell Williams speaks to long-time friend, collaborator and the planet’s most restless rapper, designer and architect Kanye West, from Miami Beach and Wyoming respectively. The two have collaborated and toured the world together throughout the 21st century, but they are, above all, friends. At home during lockdown, the duo reflect on when they first met, the importance of Virgina to black music, optimal creativity during lockdown, and how we all must act together to bounce back from the impact of a world temporarily drawn apart, exclusively for i-D’s new issue.
