30 Years Of i-D Magazine.

By ThomasHewetson on August 9th, 2010

thennownext.jpegOn August 12th we see the release of i-D magazine’s 30th birthday issue. Featuring covers with Kate Moss, Naomi Campbell and Lady Gaga famously only showing only one eye it’s set to be a great issue with a them of ‘now, then and next’.

“30 years – whoosh, more than an instant in i-D’s lifeline – it’s a generation. Three decades to be celebrated and contained in this special issue. The whole issue was created by Nick Knight 200 portraits that SHOWstudio made at the close of 2009 in Somerset House – once the home of British passports, now the central location for British Fashion Week. Nick’s celebration of identity was also a commemorative project inspired by the 5th birthday issue of i-D, where 100 portraits were featured in The Grown Up Issue. 25 years on, the gallery selection grew to 200. Happy birthday!”

Terry Jones, Editor-in-Chief, i-D

Founded by former Vogue art director Terry Jones in 1980, it’s come a long way since the first issue which was formed like a hand stapled fanzine. With a beautiful layout and it’s constant fascination with youth and the new, i-D remains as relevant as it ever has been. Outliving it’s competitors, the publication was required to scale back the amount of issues released a year from twelve to six last year, but with a loyal readership and constant reinvention including a fantastic new website i-D looks set to remain for some time yet.

These issues will be released on three separate dates:

THEN on sale 12 August
NOW on sale 23 September
NEXT on sale 11 November

Metal Magazine #20.

By ThomasHewetson on June 21st, 2010

metalmag.jpgThe latest edition of Metal Magazine will be available in American Apparel soon. It’s the only U.K. stockist I know of and I got hooked after not which was on the cover a few issues back not being able to resist seeing a shoot of Ash Stymest’s misspelt tattoos. The articles go between Spanish and English and the shoots they do are stunning, aside from one with Pixie Geldoff a couple of issues ago.

This latest issue celebrates their 4th anniversary and features interviews with Jónsi, Tiffany Godoy, Dries Van Noten, Patrik Ervell, Su Blackwell and Marcela Guitiérrez. Alternatively, instead of waiting to go into AmApp to buy it, you can buy from their website for €5


Music, Fashion, Culture – Notion Magazine Profile.

By ThomasHewetson on April 1st, 2010

I think any fashion, art, design, photography and film enthusiasts all got very upset when Borders closed down. Their selection of magazines was second to none with everything you could ever dream of. I particularly miss browsing through Sportswear International. If anyone could inform me of where you can get it now other than their website in the comments I’d very much appreciate it! However, all isn’t lost, as you can get hold of AnotherMan, Fantastic Man and other publications in places such as WhSmith, yet there is one magazine which I would happily choose over all the rest which is available widely but continues to be kind of under the radar. Notion magazine is beautifully put together, with stunning shoots and actually good, informal fashion and music features. Quite simply, they state ‘when you open our magazine, we want it to blow your face off.’

It fills a similar cultural gap to Dazed & Confused, yet is not as Londoncentric and laid out in a more concise manner with me wanting to read everything and not just flick through. It definitely deserves more recognition. It gets better. If I haven’t convinced you to go out and buy it then you can read the whole thing on their website digitally, yet there’s nothing quite like having a hard copy. The latest issue’s cover features Eric Hassle, the Scandinavian singer, whose been hyped this year and inside you can find the ‘Hipsters Handbook,’ which is a 65 page supplement and features such great style that isn’t pretentious and is more than accessible. Absolutely love it.
