Christmas came a week early for VICE, who today announced its purchase of i-D magazine. The irreverent youth-culture magazine will join forces with the influential 32-year-old British style magazine, known for its winking cover models, to create an online fashion publication.
"VICE is so excited to work with the guys at i-D magazine, one of the only fashion publications in the world we actually respect," says Andrew Creighton, VICE's president. "We know digital, i-D knows style, and together we’re going to give the world the gift of eye-catching, mind-blowing video-driven fashion content.”
A statement confirms i-D founder Terry Jones and his wife Tricia will remain partners and shareholders in i-D and will continue to lend their creative voices.
