Iconic British culture magazine i-D unveiled two pre-fall covers for ”The Coming of Age” issue starring ever-evolving artist Willow Smith. The issue focuses on those who are still finding and exploring their creative niches, with a spotlight shone on Willow Smith along with photographer Ryan McGinley, dancer Maddie Ziegler, Demna Gvasalia of cult brand Vetements, French actresses Marine Vacth, and many more. Both covers were shot by Tyrone Lebon and styled by Julia Sarr-Jamois and perfectly capture the energy of the issue, with a centralized focus on an age where nothing seems to fit. Acting Editor of i-D Sarah Raphael explains the concept of the issue:

From first times to first loves to first fuck-ups, growing up is hard to explain. If we’re to believe the coming of age films, it happens in the second half, after a perspective-altering interaction. Our youth is a comedy of errors, full of excruciating, awkward moments and exhilarating “fuck it” moments, that you’ll stop short of later on.”
