I love it when something in fashion makes you laugh. Because usually it's an industry that takes itself so seriously-I mean, other people laugh at it, but if you're at all interested you don't, really, because that's kind of rude...There's always something in i-D that makes me laugh, though-guaranteed every single issue. And you know why? Cos it's English. Hell yeah. See the thing is...English people are just funnier. That's the way it is.
