International purveyors of the “cool,” VICE has announced the stretch of their empire, buying out the iconic trend-heavy tome i-D Magazine. Announcing the deal with the iconic British magazine as a “beautiful partnership,” the founder Terry Jones and wife Tricia will still remain shareholders and creative visionaries, only now with extra assistance from VICE in producing more superb styled content. i-D will still release its monthly print magazine, but expect a boost in online material, video content and digital media with the help of VICE’s prolific approach in creative online production.
“VICE is so excited to work with the guys at i-D magazine, one of the only fashion publications in the world we actually respect,” says VICE president Andrew Creighton. As for i-D, Jones has called the alliance “the beginning of an incredibly exciting chapter in i-D’s history,” recently tweeting in enthusiasm “WE JUST GOT MARRIED.” Keep your ears to the group for more news.
