  • 20 years of nose to tail dining with fergus henderson

    "It's a terrible thing how much fun I have", Fergus Henderson says of his job as chef and founder of the St John restaurant. Known for his down to earth manner and common sense attitude towards food, he's been laying his table with the essentials for fine dining for 20 years now. His fan base stretches from the art world to fashion scene, with friends and family and a few city boys thrown in for good measure. Amid the clank and clatter of lunch time diners i-D tucked into a haddock, bacon and mash lunch and chatted about architecture, common sense and the reaching the limits of what's edible.

  • 2,4,6,8, We Appreciate Flight Facilities!

    Flight Facilities are the band behind the insta-blog classic Crave You, and they’ve kept the same dancefloor ready pace for their latest song Two Bodies, albeit with a more downtempo groove. The duo behind the music, Hugo Gruzman and James Lyell, have fully embraced their band name, regularly performing in pilot outfits and dropping flight commentary into their mixtapes for that added touch of in-flight entertainment. We decided to treat them to our new 2,4,6,8 feature to help to grips with the people you need to know. Their debut album Down to Earth will be released on October the 27th through Glassnote Records.

  • first and last with david rodigan mbe

    As a certified Top Selector, who better to talk music with than David ‘RamJam’ Rodigan, MBE. This passionate and ardent advocate of Reggae continues to spread the word through his 1Xtra show every Sunday, winning new generations of fans from around the world as he goes.

We grill the World Clash Champion on heartbreak, Dr. Who and the records that have been oh-so relevant to his life so far…

  • Oliver Hadlee Pearch and his assistant Tegen Williams explore the relationship between artist and muse

    “Maybe these relationships you build up are one in a million,” says young London photographer Oliver Hadlee Pearch dreamily to his flame-haired muse, Tegen Williams. “You find people who you just connect with and who it’s easy to work with and be around.” Closer than friends but certainly not lovers, theirs is the kind of pure platonic love that runs thicker than water and sweeter than honey. So much more than just a photographer and assistant, Ollie and Tegen have been brightening up each other’s lives since they first met two years ago.

  • Gregg Araki on Shailene Woodley, Depeche Mode, and his new film White Bird in a Blizzard

    Describing two of his past films as, “A kinda cross between avant-garde experimental cinema and a queer John Hughes flick,” and “A Beverly Hills, 90210 episode on acid," director Gregg Araki has served as something of a youth oracle in the span of his 27-year career. From movies like The Doom Generation to Mysterious Skin, Araki has explored identity, sexuality, and what it means to be a teenager. Araki’s forthcoming film, White Bird in a Blizzard, follows Kat (played by Shailene Woodley), a 17-year-old girl coming of age in suburban California whose neurotic mother (played by Eva Green) suddenly and mysteriously disappears without a trace. Ahead of the film’s theatrical release this Friday, i-D caught up with the legendary director to talk all things White Bird.

  • from occupy london to the suburbs, a journey with laura oldfield ford

    Surbiton station isn’t the first place you’d expect to meet Laura Oldfield Ford. It is almost a decade since her zine Savage Messiah began garnering attention among the east London art crowd. Her post-subcultural blend of prose, drawings and collages seemed to flicker like pointed lights in the dusk of a city. There was a clear enemy: the “yuppies” moving into a Hackney once known for cheap rents and alternative culture but was becoming an area at the mercy of offshore landlords.
