The task of putting Karl Lagerfeld on the cover of i-D magazine must seem like something of a conundrum. As you’re more than likely aware, the cover of i-D magazine has to feature its star / model winking – their eyes echoing the title’s logo. But how do you get Karl Lagerfeld to wink on the cover of your spring 2012 issue given he never takes his sunglasses off?

Karl Lagerfeld‘s i-D magazine cover was shot by Lagerfeld himself and features on the front of i-D’s Royalty Issue. Or should I say #RoyaltyIssue – how long till we’re all sick of seeing #bloodyhashtags away from Twitter? From the announcement:

Insi-De Spring 2012′s #RoyaltyIssue we don our crowns and take-up our rightful position on the fashion throne. With the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee fast approaching it’s time to live life as a monarch of all things style, music and culture.

Kicking things off on our first Royalty Issue cover – drum roll please – we’d like to welcome to the stage the undisputed King of Fashion… Karl Lagerfeld! Snapping his cover wink himself, HRH Karl discusses fashion, the future and his fluffy pussycat Choupette, with i-D’s Fashion Director Charlotte Stockdale. i-D’s Royalty Issue hits the shelves on March 22nd.
