Life, love, and wisdom as seen by i-D

All-star contributions from the best creative minds of our time

The best of i-D’s special projects including contributions from artists and designers such as David LaChapelle, John Galliano, Sam Taylor-Wood, Juergen Teller, and Terry Richardson

Soul i-D is a 600-page visual anthology of ideas and images featuring personal insights and contributions from some of the most creative names in contemporary fashion, music, art, and design. Looking at issues that affect all of our lives, from family values to global responsibility and personal lessons learned to inspirational survival stories, all of the best special projects are here—and with the mix of quirky irreverence that has been part of the i-D vocabulary since its launch by Terry Jones in 1980.

Contributors include: Ron Arad, Giorgio Armani, Christopher Bailey, David Bailey, Bono, Neville Brody, Hussein Chalayan, Alber Elbaz, Olafur Eliasson, Tracey Emin, Tom Ford, John Galliano, Bob Geldof, Marc Jacobs, Stephen Jones, Nick Knight, David LaChapelle, Helmut Lang, Maison Martin Margiela, Chris Martin, Stella McCartney, Alexander McQueen, Kylie Minogue, Yoko Ono, Miuccia Prada, Terry Richardson, Anita Roddick, Renzo Rosso, Paolo Roversi, Peter Saville, Wing Shya, David Sims, Raf Simons, Paul Smith, Mario Sorrenti, Sam Taylor-Wood, Juergen Teller, Wolfgang Tillmans, Dries Van Noten, Patrick Vieira, Ellen Von Unwerth, Alek Wek, Vivienne Westwood, and Yohji Yamamoto.

Chapters include:
Family Future Positive – what are our support systems in this first decade of the 21st century?
Beyond Price – what are the things we have in our lives already that money can’t buy? (wish lists were not allowed!)
Learn and Pass It On – things we have learned in our lives that we would like to pass on to other people.
Safe+Sound – inspirational stories of people who have come through difficult times in a positive way.
The editor:
Tricia Jones started her career as an infant school teacher, teaching from 1968-85. Involved from the very beginning of the i-D story as the “maker of pasta” looking after the students who worked on the earliest issues of i-D, her role changed and developed as the magazine grew. Tricia began working as editor of special projects for i-D in 1998 with Family Future Positive. Since 1988 Tricia has also acted as producer on Instant Design’s promotions and advertising campaigns including Bogner’s Fire & Ice, Yohji Yamamoto’s Y’s and Y-3, and more recently Emperor Moth from Moscow.

C’est aussi un titre qui n’est pas uniquement ce qu’il paraît, il est bien plus que ça. (…) Pour résumer, Soul i-D est un mélange d’irrévérences et d’expressions, présentant nombre de créatifs renommés de la mode, la musique et l’industrie de l’art, culminant en une ressource artistique de choix."
