Maybe it’s February, or maybe it’s because a new season is upon us and gossip is a traveler’s best friend—but the i-D microdrama has been one of many bits of legacy intrigue making the rounds in recent weeks. Photo: Dia Dipasupil/Getty Images

“Seems like Carlos Nazario is the obvious i-D choice to replace Alastair Mckimm?” an editor told me the other day, casually referring to the trending gossip on who might fill the vacancy at the top of i-D, the once very directional magazine where Edward Enninful got his start and which Karlie Kloss recently rescued from the death grips of Vice Media. Nazario, now style director at Harper’s Bazaar, seemed to check various boxes. After all, he was working for both Vogue and i-D before he joined the Hearst publication last fall.

“I can’t imagine a world where they don’t offer it to him,” this person continued. “Also, Alastair lives in New York”—ed. note: does he?—“so I don’t think it would have to be someone in London. Derek [Blasberg] would never do it, glad you saw through that too. All these jobs go to stylists now instead of editors, besides.” (Yes, as loyal readers know, I recently defused the terribly unsophisticated rumor that Kloss was going to hire her friend Derek to run the magazine. Neither one of them needs that friction. I’m sure Blasberg will be a loyal adviser instead.)
