The Just Kids Issue is available to buy from i-D online here and on newsstands now.
i-D kick starts the new season with a celebration of what it means to be young today. Youth isn’t determined by what age you are. Nor what stage of life you’re in. It isn’t to do with experience, nor responsibilities. Feeling youthful is finding joy and pleasure in everything you do, whatever your age.
In The Just Kids Issue, artist Matthew Stone shares his manifesto on the importance of optimism and, above all, love. His manifesto is accompanied by a series of images portraying his creative joie de vivre, featuring a series of models and performers wearing AW12 finery, styled by Matthew Josephs. Expect much more from Matthew Stone on i-D online in the coming weeks, but here we present his Just Kids cover starring mysterious, much-anticipated singer, Twigs.
“As the warm light of our friendship, washed over us, we began to understand that this could also mean that every possible action was pregnant with possibility and creative potential.”
