With all the shifts that are happening among the fashion industry—particularly those within the magazine and editorial fields—it can be hard to keep track of who does what and where. However, i-D Magazine has just appointed Alastair McKimm as its new global editor-in-chief, according to an announcement from the brand.
“Alastair is part of the i-D family so it felt like a natural next step to look at how he can further embed his incredible experience of the industry across i-D and bring his creative style to this global brand,” said i-D’s publisher, Lucy Delacherois-Day in the announcement.
For Alastair, it’s clear that taking the reins of the magazine feels like lifetime in the making. “I-D changed my life,” he said. “I started collecting the magazine in the 90s and I’ve been fortunate enough to work for the brand in some capacity for my entire career, from assistant to stylist to Fashion Director, and now to be part of the big picture and future vision is beyond my wildest dreams. i-D has always been a platform for the most inspiring new voices and continuing that legacy is what I’m most excited about.”
