i-D – December 15, 2016
christmas with edie campbell
To celebrate the advent of the festive season, we asked i-D’s family and friends to share their most cherished Christmas memories, reflect on whether they’ve been naughty or nice, and tell us their New Year’s resolutions for 2017.
Brains, beauty, wit, and exceptionally good equestrian skills, Edie Campbell’s got it all. When she’s not lolling around on Instagram or stalking the catwalks of Versace, Chanel, Saint Laurent, Chloe, Kenzo and Stella McCartney, (didn’t she walk, like, 100 shows this season?), you can find her covering the world and its wardrobe in colourful patches along with her Itchy Scratchy Patchy partner in crime Christabel MacGreevy. She’s the coolest kid on the block and we wish we could spend every Christmas with this Campbell. Ok, fine, maybe Olympia too.
Happy Christmas, Edie! Tell us what’s going on in your Christmas pic?
Olympia gladly receiving my affections as per.
Have you been naughty or nice this year?
I am ALWAYS nice.
What’s on your Christmas list?
A can opener.
How will you be spending Christmas day?
Trying not to let my granny get drunk.
What’s your favourite Christmas song of all time?
Christmas Card from a Hooker in Minneapolis by Tom Waits.
What’re the best/worst Christmas present you ever received?
I got a kitten once for Christmas.
What were your 2016 highlights?
It’s hard to choose but probably when Prince, Bowie, Leonard Cohen died and trump got elected. (she’s joking…)
How will you usher in the New Year?
With a pinger at a rave in a stately home.
