More UK Street Style – 1981 from i-D Magazine issue 3

Elaine, from the UK, recently got in touch with BrandNewRetro. Whilst hanging out on the Kings Rd, London, back in 1981, the folk from i-D magazine took her into a studio for an impromptu photo shoot. Her photo then appeared in i-D as part of their Straight Up series. She’s lost her copy of the mag (it was either issue 2 or 3) but came across our earlier post which contained a few selected scans from issue 3. I’ve now scanned in the remainder of the photos from issue 3 – see below.  Alas, no sign of Elaine (she must be issue 2). Unlike Boy George who is in issue 2 & 3 (below) and at this stage of his life, had yet to start Culture Club.

  1. Hi, I have issue 2. However, I sold it this afternoon and have to courier it to London Tomorrow. I will scan the pages first and email them if you can provide an email address. All the best Simon (vintage mischief)
