Remembering i-D & The Face

In the 80’s and early 90’s in a time before the internet, I used to buy almost every issue of  i-D magazine (not to be confused with i.d. magazine) and The Face . I was fixated on the imagery and sometimes risque fashion spreads.

Via the archives page of the i-d magazine website:

i-D began as a fanzine dedicated to the street style of punk-era London in 1980 and soon became essential reading for the fashion-aware. i-D has now developed into a glossy magazine that documents fashion and contemporary culture, and has gone a long way toward defining it.

I have no idea what  i-D magazine is like today as I stopped buying magazines years ago…

  1. I recall I.D. having some pretty racy t&a aspects, and The Face was always good for some subculture pics!
