In the first of its eight summer issues, Christian Dior’s new artistic director Raf Simons is gracing the front cover of i-D magazine.
For the cover, Raf teamed up with stylist Olivier Rizzo and photographer Willy Venderperre, to shoot the look. All clothing is of course Raf Simons.
Raf’s appointment at Christian Dior was one of the most talked about fashion appointments of the last year. In a statement, i-D said; “Every once in a while a designer comes along with the ability to change the fashion industry forever. Raf Simons is that designer. As he prepares to make his Dior debut at Paris Haute Couture this July, we celebrate the start of a momentous new chapter for two of the industry’s biggest players. To say we’re excited is an understatement!”
i-D’s first summer issue is available online now at i-Donline and will hit shelves on May 10th. The second summer issue cover will feature Julia Restoin Roitfeld; daughter of former Vogue paris editor Carine Roitfeld.
