For its Pre-Spring “Whatever the Weather Issue” i-D has produced twelve covers by Chen Man in celebration of The Year of the Dragon. The striking covers celebrate the diversity of beauty in China today, and while only four of them will hit the newsstands, the remaining eight are extra-special online exclusives. In addition to the twelve Chen Man covers, i-D produced another five covers that will be on newsstands.
Forum members loved the Chen Man produced images. “This is simply sublime, wow. Reminds me of their fantastic older covers, and I LOVE every single cover!!” Miss Dalloway posted.
Ives927 wrote, “I honestly would be happy with ANY of these covers. They're absolutely exquisite. Best covers I've seen in a long time by any magazines. The styling is impeccable and merges fashion and culture beautifully. Really hope all the cover shots are included inside.”
|PerfectTonight| commented, “This is what a cover should look like, storytelling, artistic and fresh. I was actually scrolling back and forth to investigate every small detail of each cover. The tones, colors and contrasts are inspiring. I'm extremely impressed which I haven’t been in a while.”
The covers really are a stunning tribute to Chinese culture while also retaining i-D’s trademark tongue-in-cheek vibe. Enjoy.
