In the industry of fashion publications, September issues are the biggest and most expensive books out there. With the current state of the industry, most are keeping it safe with cover faces they know can sell e.g. Kate Moss is on three covers (W, Vogue Russia, Vogue UK) and Lara Stone for Vogue Paris. Therefore, i-D’s decision to feature a cover with all black females, an “unsafe” choice in these times, is great. Of course, they have the four hottest black female models doing their thing right now: Chanel Iman, Sessilee Lopez, Arlenis Sosa Pena and Jourdan Dunn.
i-D, btw, is one of the best international magazines you can get. They are very innovative, witty, kinda quirky but fun to read. They sell it, at times, at the bookstore. It’s worth the six to eight dollars.
