i-D Magazine is well known for their consistent magazine covers. Everyone that has ever graced their cover winks their right eye in order to mimic the magazine’s logo, but what do you do when your cover boy never takes off his sunglasses? You make a makeshift patch, of course!
Karl Lagerfeld is one of 8 people featured on the cover of the Spring 2012 issue of i-D magazine. Dubbed the Royalty issue, it was very fitting for the King of Fashion to grace the cover. In what can be described as a self portrait since the photograph, like the other 7 covers, was taken by Mr. Lagerfeld himself, Karl is wearing his normal white high collared shirt with a dark suit, along with his signature dark sunglasses.
Inside, Karl discusses fashion, the future and his fluffy pussycat Choupette, with i-D’s Fashion Director Charlotte Stockdale. We can’t wait to see if there are any more self-portraits coming when the magazine hits newsstands on March 22nd. For now, check out the magazine’s 8 covers above also featuring Vivienne Westwood, Georgia May Jagger and Carolyn Murphy in the gallery above.
