For more than 30 years the covers of i-D have provided an invaluable reading on youth culture in its myriad guises. After three decades in print the same is true and none more so than with the pair of covers for i-D’s forthcoming Pre-Fall 2014 Girls + Boys Issue featuring Binx and A$AP Rocky photographed by Daniel Jackson. On Binx, i-D editor-in-chief Holly Shackleton had this to say, “She plays soccer, drops ‘maaaan’ into every other sentence and oozes youthful confidence by the bucket load. She’s the quintessential i-D girl and everything we love about models right now.” The meteoric rise of A$AP Rocky is undeniable. Shackleton reckons he is “fast cementing his position as one of the musical voices of his generation.” In both Binx and A$SAP Rocky, i-D has the girl and boy who epitomize not only this cultural moment, but, and this is crucial, the future both chart.
